Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs a project by ScholarLed
Discussion group for the COPIM Community Governance Working Group.

In an era of transformative open access journal agreements, the article examines the Community-Led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs (COPIM) project through a transformative lens. How might we apply transformativeness to open access monograph publishing? Is transformativeness measured in strictly financial and transactional terms, or should more qualitative measures be considered; and, if so, what might those measures be? Centering academic values, scaling small, fostering communities of practice, production efficiencies, and collaboration are characteristics of the COPIM Project. Libraries and universities committed to academic values are called on to align both the direction of their scholarly communication programs and the principles underlying their collection development policies around a reimagined and transformative open access monograph publishing system that aims higher, beyond transaction-based cost transparencies.

…Open Book Publishers, ScholarLed, COPIM…
I’m Editor and Outreach Co-Ordinator at Open Book Publishers, a leading independent not-for-profit Open Access book publisher, founded and run by academics. I work with ScholarLed, a consortium of five academic-led, not-for-profit OA book presses of which Open Book Publishers is a founder member, and I do outreach work for the COPIM (Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs) project, which is building open, community-governed infrastructure to develop and strengthen Open Access book publishing. I’m also completing a PhD on theatrical adaptations of nineteenth-century novels and poetry. Cover photo by Jason Leung on Unsplash.
