Martin Paul Eve (Apr 13 2021). BS19 - A new funding model for open-access monographs: introducing a novel approach to publishing OA books through library membership funding, UKSG Annual Conference 2021. doi: 10.48448/j2r2-f575


Prof. Eve and Dr Pinter outline the work of a university press, with assistance from the COPIM Project (Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs), in launching an innovative revenue model to fund open access monographs at a traditional publisher. Building on library journal subscription models like OLH and on Knowledge Unlatched's approach to monograph funding, they present a new, sustainable OA publishing model that gives members exclusive access to a highly-regarded backlist, with the revenue then used to make the frontlist openly accessible. The model can be emulated by other scholarly presses who wish to take advantage of the opportunities that open access publishing affords.
