Supporting the Journals You Can’t Publish: Librarians Helping Journals Cut Corporate Ties

605 views

Published on

Library publishing programs are breathing new life into the scholarly communication landscape by facilitating open access (OA) but, with limited resources, these programs alone can’t fulfill the need for rapid decentralization of journals away from profiteering corporate publishers. Consequently, in order to have a broader impact libraries must also become a support system for scholars and not-for-profit presses seeking to avoid or leave the corporate publishing model.

This presentation from the 2017 LPForum explores the challenges faced by journal teams working to make research cheaper or OA that are not in a library publishing program - a large and growing group - and how libraries can become a support system for these journals.
