  33. 33. Conclusions • Considerable potential for OAPEN-UK-style open access model – paper and e still required • Need to increase confidence and understanding of Creative Commons • A push for CC BY may alienate researchers?? • Need to consider future roles • Encourage authors to care more about post publication elements • Quality is paramount – need to ensure that OA model tackles negative perceptions
  34. 34. 4b. The monograph publishing process from creation to being in the hands of the reader – process, infrastructure & effort by authors and publishers
  35. 35. Library Consortia My call to action….  Opportunity to help mould the OA offering in HSS  Help centralise, share, explore and test  Support new OA publishers  Keep it transparent & maintain quality  Collaborate and engage
