ALPSP- New Report

The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) recently released a report (pdf) called “The potential effect of making journals free after a six month embargo”.

Conclusions:

– “The impact on all publishers’ revenues would be considerable”

– “It is strongly recommended that no mandate is issued on making all or most journal articles available free of charge after a six month embargo until both libraries and publishers have had time to understand the issues better and have together taken steps to explore alternatives to a fully open access publishing model which could be mutually attractive”.

Full PDF report here.
