A landscape study on open access and monographs

A landscape study on open access and the monographKnowledge Exchange has published a first-of-a-kind report that is the biggest landscape study on the conditions and potentials for Open Access books yet. The report maps Finland, Netherlands, UK, France, Denmark, Germany, Norway and Austria; asking questions such as “Are books included in national Open Access policies?”, “What kind of funding streams supporting open access monographs exist?”, and “What variety of publishing models for Open Access monographs can be located?”. The study shows that even though monographs are not included in the main Open Access policies, they will find their way into the public debate over the next few years. The report was authored, among others, by OPERAS members OAPEN and KU Research.
