Funding support for open access journals
open access, academic libraries, collection development
Academic libraries have an important role to play in helping to ensure that scholarly publishing is sustainable, and that the public has access to research results and knowledge. In addition to running institutional repositories, and funding publisher’s open access (OA) article processing charges (APCs), libraries have increasingly begun funding OA journal operations directly from collection and operating budgets. The following report details attempts to “flip” subscription charges in this manner, and provides recommendations on ways that libraries can continue to support the publication and discovery of OA content into the future.
