van Gerven Oei, V. W. J., Steiner, T., Arias, J., Gatti, R., Hillen, H., Higman, R., & Ramalho, A. (2024). Launching the Thoth Plus service model. Copim.

As outlined in more detail in an accompanying blog post, both the expansion of our team and interconnections with other open infrastructures require an equitable and accessible sustainability model in line with Thoth’s ethos. We previously announced a two-tiered pricing model (cf. Gatti et al., 2022) and have been developing this model in recent months with the extensive input from our stakeholder community.

Basic functionality of the platform will remain accessible to all account holders under Thoth Free, giving access to the full metadata management and import/export functionalities via the user interface and open APIs. This will allow users to create and update metadata, and disseminate it to an ever-increasing number of repositories, aggregators, and indexes.

Thoth Plus comprises two different subscription packages (A and B) covering the automated distribution of publisher metadata to a variety of platforms, as well as a number of bespoke publisher-facing services.
