  2. 2. brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com | www.ubiquitypress.com| @ubiquitypress To return control of publishing to societies, universities and researchers, providing them with the infrastructure and support to not only match but to outcompete the legacy publishers. Background to Ubiquity Press Background Mission  Spun out of University College London in 2012  Researcher-led  Grown out of the humanities  50+ years publishing experience  Comprehensive approach: journals, books, data, software, wetware…
  3. 3. brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com | www.ubiquitypress.com| @ubiquitypress Why are OA monographs important? • Traditional print monographs sell 200-400 copies • The humanities are being left behind STEM • Humanities authors and departments need more demonstrable impact • Libraries need affordable books • The majority of researchers are now in the developing world, and cannot afford €40 per book • Access to knowledge is important for everyone

  5. 5. brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com | www.ubiquitypress.com| @ubiquitypress Why is funding for OA necessary? • Open Access usually involves a one-time processing charge (an APC for articles, or BPC for books) • This is charged up front to cover the publisher’s expenses • All electronic content is then available free of charge • Some funds can be recovered from print sales, but this is not guaranteed.

  24. 24. brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com | www.ubiquitypress.com| @ubiquitypress Case study • Published in 2016 with KU funding as a pilot for UP • KU members vote on books after some months, so funding uncertain • Books must be ready to publish shortly after vote • OA publishers and authors therefore need to take a risk • Conclusion: KU is best suited to subsidizing legacy print publishers to go OA, not promoting OA-first models
