Innovation in Open Access Monographs, Archives and Journals

If one were to review the past 10 years of conference proceedings and published papers discussing open access in the production of scholarly content, she would find relatively little on business model and publishing model innovation. Most of the scholarly conversation has been around article processing charges for journals, embargo periods, and the role of governmental and institutional funding and purchasing. But business and publishing model innovation is alive and well in open access and will be an increasingly potent force for advancing the cause of open access beyond journals and into all forms of scholarly content from primary data to monographs to archives and beyond.
In this panel we bring together three voices from the publishing industry to share stories of innovation in journal, monograph and archive open access publishing. Alison Mudditt Director, University of California Press, David Parker Publisher, Alexander Street and Brian Hole, Founder and CEO of Ubiquity Press, will discuss the state of open access they found when they surveyed the respective publishing space they operate in (monographs, archives and journals), how they responded with the current new open access model they have offered to the university library space and close with musings on what the future may bring as open access keeps evolving.
Rick Anderson, Associate Dean for Scholarly Resources & Collections of the University of Utah will synthesize the various open access publishing perspectives presented by the panelists in a summary discussion and moderated question and answer session.
