Invitation to Participate: OA Publishing Co-operative Study

April 19th, 2016 by  | Comments Off on Invitation to Participate: OA Publishing Co-operative Study

Calling all library administrators, collections, and scholarly communications librarians!

The Open Access Scholarly Publishing Co-operative Study needs your input on a new model for scholarly publishing!

Subscriptions no longer make sense. Article processing charges are not for everyone. What about a different approach? What about building on the growing cooperation in scholarly publishing? Help us assess the prospects of forming an open access cooperative among libraries and journals. It would pool expertise and resources. It would flip the subscription economy into an open access publishing cooperative.

Learn more about how we think it could work, from an initial transition period to kick it off to full operation, while being able to provide immediate feedback on the concept, with the librarian version of SET Co-op Scenario and Survey: http://oa-cooperative.org/survey.html

The Open Access Scholarly Publishing Co-operative Study is an initiative of the Public Knowledge Project. We are grateful for your time and participation.
