6 new ebooks available in open access thanks to an institutional fundraising campaign


The institutional fundraising campaign for the OpenEdition Books Select offer, conducted jointly with Knowledge Unlatched, OpenEdition and Couperin, is on the right track: 58 institutions (mainly from France but also from Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, USA) have pledged for the release of a package of 30 SSH research books in French (10 new books and 20 from OpenEdition collections).

In fact, 6 out of the 10 new titles are already available on the OpenEdition Books platform:

For Libraries and institutions, engaging in this operation is a good opportunity to show policy makers, researchers and publishers that other ways of funding the dissemination of research exist and work. It is also a concrete way of putting into practice the political will that is increasingly being expressed in favour of open science.

The release of the entire package requires 120 participants to join the project: the commitment period has therefore been extended until 30 April 2019.
