Funding open access books
at Open Book Publishers:
A practical overview
Lucy Barnes
OA book policies in the United Kingdom
• Mandate from one national funder, UKRI
• Funded research must be OA starting 2024 (for books)
• £3.5 million ring-fenced funding, criteria unclear
• Possible REF policy…?
• Some individual funders and support, e.g. Wellcome Trust
• European policy: cOAlition S and PALOMERA
• Overall: very mixed picture!
• Book Processing Charges (BPCs):
 Simple
X Unfair and unpopular
• Grant funding
• University subsidy
• Collective library funding
• Sales of certain formats
How do presses fund OA books now?
Reports and case studies
• COPIM: ’Revenue Models for Open
Access Monographs 2020’

• Business model collection:

Different presses, different approaches
‘Born’ OA, scholar-led ‘Born’ OA university presses
Generally favour collective ways of working including collective library funding
models, some use of BPCs or institutional funding
Different presses, different approaches
University presses transitioning
to / experimenting with OA
Commercial / larger university
presses
Group 1: some use of collective funding models or experimental approaches;
Group 2: BPCs common & some transformative agreements
