2014 Open Access: Success and Sustainability
How do we define success in open access publishing? By sustainability? High usage? Worldwide reach? And, what are the business models that are the best bets for success? To address these questions, this panel brings together four case studies illustrating a wide range of OA initiatives. We'll hear the latest from two innovative programs with very different business models, BioOne's Elementa and Knowledge Unlatched. Then we'll look at how two university presses are incorporating open access into their programs. Covering both books and journals, this session will inform, inspire, and provide some concrete ideas for how university presses can develop their thinking about open access.
