Journal Transitions to Open Access

Two readings to consider:

First, from LIBER Quarterly: The Journal of European Research Libraries, this paper investigates “the drivers, costs and benefits of potential ways to increase access to scholarly journals…including gold & green open access, moves towards national licensing, publisher-led delayed open access, and transactional models”.

Second, a workshop report from Knowledge Exchange entitled “Scholarly Society Journals in Transition to Open Access“.  The objectives of the workshop were:

-“to identify good practice in existing business models for scholarly society journals, particularly in relation to sustainability and the achievement of benefits to the scholarly community

– to discuss further actions Knowledge Exchange might take in collaboration with other organisations to support scholarly societies in a transition to open access”
