In our opening session, expert panelists from three nonprofit publishers addressed how their respective organizations are exploring new open access business models and ideas that go beyond traditional APCs. Plan S, OA2020, and other emerging global policies have exacerbated recent discussions about open access. But many nonprofit organizations have long been pushing the envelope in finding new ways to facilitate open research, in pursuit of both mission fulfillment and revenue diversification. This enlightening session discusses these innovative approaches and the opportunities and challenges they present for their forward-looking sponsors.
