DepositAUPresses OA Monograph Case Studies

Profiles of selected Open Access (OA) monograph programs at university presses. The case studies were selected to provide insight into the range of experiments and models for publishing OA monographs that university presses have undertaken in the last decade. Cornell University Press Signale and Cornell Open; Duke University Press participation in Knowledge Unlatched; the University of Michigan Press’s early development of an OA imprint; the University of North Texas Humanities Open Book Project—these four studies look at the business, editorial, and licensing models used by different project and explores the lessons learned and applied over more than a decade of experiment and innovation.
