How ready is your institution for Open Access (OA) monographs? Although excluded from REF2020, there is no doubt that they will be included in the future, indeed you can already publish an OA monograph now. This session will first provide a brief introduction to the OA monograph landscape – what is happening, who is doing what, what models are being explored. It will then look at how institutions are responding to landscape and based on evidence collected through institutional case studies as part of the OAPEN-UK project, present tips for getting your institution ready for OA monographs.
The OAPEN-UK project, funded by AHRC and Jisc is exploring open access monograph publishing in the humanities and social sciences. The institutional case studies included in-depth interviews with Pro-Vice Chancellors of Research, Directors of Research, Grant administrators, Finance Directors, Librarians and Repository Staff and researchers themselves. The session will be presented by Ellen Collins, Research Officer for OAPEN-UK.
