    Dear All,

    In this post, Roger van Zwanenberg from Pluto Journals describes the context for its transition to Open Access, e.g., the decreasing viability of closed access, what decision-making options were available and the implications of the library-funded model, for journals as opposed to books: https://openresearch.community/posts/pluto-journals-moves-from-subscription-to-open-access.

    Best regards,
    Pablo
