    • Service-oriented
      • Works well for practitioners, academics in developing nations, and those interested in interdisciplinary fields
  • Challenge 1: Keeping them going

      • Invites more parties to become involved

      • Oversees day-to-day tasks; acts as liaison with the Press during production process
      • Helps to market the journal
  • Challenge 2: Keeping them funded
    • Cost-out services to department/organization (recover all or most costs for services)
      • Determine all internal and freelance costs to create price list
      • E.g., basic or premium journal
    • Charge article contributors on per page or per article basis
      • Accepted practice in some disciplines
    • Utilize advertisement revenue to defray cost
  • Challenge 3: Overcoming the credibility gap
    • Open Access journals vary widely in quality
    • Indexing promotes an Open Access journal’s validity
    • Usage statistics
  • Future opportunities for Open Access
    • Supplementary material
