Sustainable non-APC OA publishing models (9th OpenAIRE workshop - February 2019)

 

New: Read about the outcomes and results!

 

In today’s publishing landscape there are several paths to Open Access (OA) publishing. A common and much discussed way of financing OA publishing is through Article Processing Charges (APC). However, over the recent years, several alternatives have been developed that do not rely on APCs. Consortia models, community-driven approaches, funder financed platforms etc. This is a path often overlooked.

Previously OpenAIRE launched two calls to fund non-author fee based open access publishing initiatives. The results of which you can find here for the 1st call and here for the 2nd call.
Under OpenAIRE Advance, we aim to continue this effort and showcase the range of models available (including organizational aspects),  assess their relative strengths and weaknesses, conduct cross-disciplinary analyses of their efficacy in different academic contexts ,and carry out knowledge-sharing activities to promote best practice and encourage experimentation. Particular focus is thereby given to consortia models, as well as sustainability models, cost sharing and different disciplinary approaches.
