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. By showcasing the range of different models and by producing a best practice guide, including a roadmap to sustainability, the OpenAIRE Sustainable Non-APC Publishing Models Workshop aims to assist publishing initiatives and libraries alike.
Because this will be a highly participatory workshop with a limited number of participants, please express your interest and indicate how you can contribute to this important topic. After receiving your expression of interest and additional information (e.g. SWOT, etc), we will get in touch as soon as possible.
