Open Access Without Authors Paying an APC? Case Studies from Publishers Working with Librarians and Funders on New OA Business Models

In a world in need of plurality, author-paid APCs may no longer be king. This session will explore the role of librarians and funders in supporting new OA business models—financially and strategically. Specific case studies will be used to share the experience of publishers (large and small, transformative and born-OA) as they experiment with models that move away from author-paid APCs, including subscribing to open, read-and-publish arrangements driving transformative journals and a collective action model. Plan S and other market forces have shown that one size cannot and will not fit all. Join us to discuss some of the many possible new states of open access funding without the APC.

43rd Annual Meeting (2021)

"Charting a New Course: From Chaos to Innovation" Without dwelling on the tumultuous events of the past year, our 43rd Annual Meeting aimed to recognize their impact, igniting—and sometimes forcing—innovation to meet changing demands. We explored the many new paths that materialize if we are willing to embrace the unexpected. What new insights and strategies have been discovered and implemented? What are the possibilities that have yet to be realized? As we move from reacting to adapting, how will our responses change the future of scholarly communications? And how should our responsibility to the larger academic ecosystem during this extraordinary time shape those responses? If you missed the SSP Annual Meeting, you can purchase individual keynote, plenary, and educational sessions on demand in the SSP OnDemand Video Content Library. You can also purchase an All Access Pass to the content on the Pathable platform through November 1.
