Gold Open Access scholarship is distributed to readers without charge. Of course, there are still costs associated with that publication. There is significant variation in the amount charged for APCs—from a few hundred to several thousand dollars per article, often with STEM journals falling in the upper range.
As with all Gold, the materials are open upon publication with no content subscriptions required for access. Knowledge Unlatched ; funders e. Annual Reviews of Public Health ; endowments e. Americana Journal of Popular Cultureor other sources and then redistribute these resources to manage the costs of publishing. When some articles in a journal are open access typically by means of an APC and others are not, this is called a hybrid journal.
While having some articles open improves access to those articles and enables their authors to meet open access mandates, the hybrid model poses challenges for the broader open access movement. Some publishers that charge APCs offer discounts on those APCs based on the institutional subscriptions purchased by the author's library.
When applying for funding take publication costs into account in all grant applications. If the publication stems from a pre-existing grant, inquire with the funder whether grant money may be used to fund APCs. Check with the administrator of the individual fund for details. Similarly, your unit may provide funds that may cover APCs. Check with the administrators of the unit funds to see what may be available.

During this time, we have made some of our learning resources freely accessible. Oxford University Press OUP is mission-driven to support the broad dissemination of high-quality academic research.
We believe that open access OA can add value to the scholarly publishing process by maximising discoverability and distribution of research materials online through a clear framework for reuse. We have a proven track record in this area; our journals programme, Oxford Open recently celebrated a successful decade of quality, sustainable OA publishing.
The majority of our journals now offer authors both green and gold OA options, and a range of licence types, to make their research freely available. At OUP we recognise the continuing importance of the monograph as a valuable mode of scholarly communication, especially in the humanities and social sciences. We have taken an active role in discussions around the changing nature of the monograph in the context of digital advancements and evolving publication models.
We are currently participating in a number of studies and consortium projects. These will allow us a greater understanding of the opportunities open access publishing offers our monograph authors and will help inform our own publication models.
Open access publishing is rapidly evolving, and led in some part by the policies introduced by research organisations and funding bodies.
OUP are committed to developing models in response to the needs of our academic authors and we are actively supporting researchers with open access publishing requirements to fulfil.
Under an open access publishing model a full academic monograph can be made freely available online immediately on publication. We charge a fee, tailored to your monograph, for this service.
If you are interested in this model, you may wish to contact your institution or research funder in advance to see if funding support is available. For more information, please contact the relevant editor to discuss options for your monograph. All proposals are subject to full peer review and standard acceptance procedures. No fee is charged but your deposit may be subject to an embargo period.
For further details of OUP's author reuse and self-archiving policy please see academic permissions. To ensure compliance with funder policies, we request that authors submitting academic proposals provide details of any research funding which directly supported their work. If you are aware of any publishing requirements from your institution or research funder splease let your editor know.

Open Access Publishing Under an open access publishing model a full academic monograph can be made freely available online immediately on publication. Research Funding To ensure compliance with funder policies, we request that authors submitting academic proposals provide details of any research funding which directly supported their work.The Investigating OA monograph services project has been exploring potential future services to support peer-reviewed OA monograph publishing. With the release of the final reportEelco and I, as project leads, highlight some of the key work packages, outcomes and recommendations.
Two of the most productive work packages were on metadata and publisher information. In the metadata work package we were looking to define the metadata required to support the visibility, discovery and use of OA monographs.
Throughout we kept on going back to the point that a metadata field should only be included if it had a real use. We have also produced a guide focused at publishers from our publisher information work package.
This guide presents recommendations for information that OA monograph publishers should make available on their websites to make their service clear to end users. It covers the OA offering, author charges, peer review, open access, licensing, author information on OA, availability, and preservation. If publishers adopt these recommendations, it will help authors, funders and institutions to make more informed decisions.
One of the other work packages that garnered high interest from all stakeholders — publishers, institutions, libraries, funders, authors — was on potential green models for OA monograph publishing. We had 17 participants attend a roundtable to discuss green and to see if they could devise any solutions. We ended up with three:. Finding green models that work for all stakeholders would be invaluable for HSS authors where funding is not always readily available for book processing charges — but these models need to continue to enforce the high quality and solid reputation that authors require for career progression.
Supporting good practice alongside innovation has long been a focus for Jisc and a recommendation in the final report is to develop more guides that will provide new university presses and those conventional presses that are just starting out with practical information on OA monograph publishing. Areas identified include licensing, author agreements, funder requirements, peer review, metrics, dissemination and discovery and self-archiving.
One area that came out strongly was the difficulty that new presses have in getting titles into the library supply chain. This has also been seen as a challenge by our teams working on the institution as e-textbook publisher project.
Jisc is now discussing with OAPEN how we will take forward these recommendations in light of our other work in the area of monographs and the institution as publisher.

This will cover monographs and book chapters. At the same time, the UK has seen a growing movement of academic and library led presses, many of whom publish OA monographs. However, there has been criticism and concern expressed about the move to open access policies for monographs from academics, learned societies and publishers.
In order to engage with the community, the Universities UK working group on open access monographs held workshops for learned societies and publishers in see the synthesis report. This was followed in May by an event for academics at Goldsmiths College, London see this event report. UUK have now released the final two reports from the working group.
The second is the evidence review from the Universities UK Open Access Monographs Group, which details a number of key recommendations.
AAU/ARL/AUPresses Open Access Monograph Publishing Initiative
In the meantime, Jisc convened a fourth event in July aimed at research and academic liaison librarians, repository managers, press managers and other interested parties. The event gave the opportunity for attendees to address issues, share experiences and expertise, and to shape future work for both Jisc and the sector. The programme consisted of an introductory presentation from Jisc and Research England, followed by lightning talks giving perspectives on researchers concerns. The afternoon session was then given over to two workshop sessions.
Building on the morning presentations, the first workshop asked participants to agree some practical steps in order to better support researchers. We have collated notes on the group discussions and feedback in order to put together ten suggestionswhich we hope could be developed further, perhaps as collaborations between institutions in order to engage with researchers, learned societies and publishers? Clear signposting for academics is required regarding where to go for support e.
Clear messaging about compliance vs. Despite the complexities, practical guidance needs to be as straightforward as possible. Flow charts and a decision tree of author options were suggested. The monograph may refer to inter alia, scholarly translations, editions, commentaries, catalogues and edited collections, as well as the conventional single-authored monograph Crossick, ; BA It is, in its broadest sense, a book written about one mono topic. As a vehicle for the long-form argument, the monograph has shown its capacity to be adapted into a myriad of print and digital forms, from enhanced digital monographs to minigraphs a book of around 50, wordsto collaboratively edited open wiki-books.
Workshop participants were particularly keen to bring out book chapters as one of the areas that needs support. Therefore, book chapters need to be added to definition and scope. Related to an author decision tree, there is a need to provide as many publishing options as possible to researchers. This included showing that print is not expendable in an OA world see also myth busting.
Book chapters were seen as a gateway to open access books. This was an area that participants wanted to be investigated further.It is frequently claimed that open access OA has the potential to increase usage and citations.
This report substantiates such claims for books in particular, through benchmarking the performance of Springer Nature books made OA through the immediate gold route against that of equivalent non-OA books. The report includes findings from both quantitative analysis of internal book data chapter downloads, citations and online mentions and external interviews conducted with authors and funders. This enables the comparison of actual performance with perceptions of performance for OA books.

It provides a very useful overview of OA for books and is also relevant for other interested parties. The guide provides many helpful links to relevant projects and organisations.
The guide gives a clear answer on pressing questions that publishers might have before or while publishing in open access, such as which information should be available on their website, or how to make readers aware of the open access version of the book. The guide is developed by the Wellcome Trust and is of course indispensable for a publisher of open access monographs funded by WT, but also highly recommended for anyone interested in the area of OA book publishing.
This guide explores concerns expressed in public evidence given by researchers, learned societies and publishers to inquiries in the UK House of Commons and the House of Lords, and also concerns expressed by researchers working with the OAPEN-UK project. The guide has been edited by active researchers, to make sure that it is relevant and useful to academics faced with making decisions about publishing.Authors are the heart and soul of TOME.
Here authors will find answers to many of their questions about TOME. Libraries are critical to the future of scholarly book publishing. Find out more about the role that librarians play in the TOME initiative.
TOME supports the work of university presses by providing grants for scholarly monographs that are deserving of publication but increasingly difficult to publish due to market-based concerns. TOME makes the work of humanities and social science faculty more widely available both inside and outside the academy, which advances the core mission of colleges and universities to create and transmit new knowledge for public benefit. To accomplish our mission we believe it is essential to change the way monograph publishing is funded.
The reality is that university presses can no longer cover the costs of publishing specialized monographs through sales alone.
Likewise, it is unreasonable to expect humanities and social sciences fields to adopt a STEM-style author-pays system. For these reasons, we believe that the only rational solution to the scholarly monograph dilemma is a system of institutionally funded faculty book subsidies that retains the same commitment to editorial excellence while guaranteeing global access through open access editions.
Of course, such a solution cannot be formulated and implemented overnight, which is why we seek partners and collaborators committed to fundamental change. TOME is eager to work with other open monograph initiatives that share the same vision of bringing together scholars, universities, libraries, and presses in pursuit of a common goal—a sustainable open monograph ecosystem.
In short, TOME is a movement not a club. Here you will find just a few of the latest monographs published with TOME funding.
TOME is part of a growing movement to open up scholarly research to the world. As such we support the work of other initiatives and, wherever possible, hope to collaborate with them.
