About the Webinar
Standards are an important element of scaling up any business process. As Open Access is rapidly growing, the need to improve the business models and relationships to create a functional ecosystem becomes more critical. The past economic models and workflows were established based on a subscription model. OA revenue models are typically based on author publication charges, creating a more complicated workflow, and it is questionable whether the new OA business practices can sustain themselves at the scale of expected article output. Invariably, third-party processors will need to help manage the institutional relationships, the billing and payment processing necessary, and likely other elements of the required business ecosystem for Open Access.
The second part of NISO’s two-part series on the Infrastructure of Open Access will discuss how to create a Functioning Business Ecosystem. Speakers will explore the infrastructure elements that some community members are putting into place, discuss what is working and what isn't, and identify problems that remain to be solved.
