LIBER is happy to organise a workshop on behalf of OpenAIRE, Beyond APCs: Alternative Open Access Publishing Business Models.

Thursday April 5th 2018 (9:30 – 17:00) 

This public workshop will give an overview of the work done in the two calls for alternative funding mechanisms for open access publishing initiatives. We will discuss:

  • Business models: different types, what works, what doesn’t, what is scalable, interesting examples
  • Outreach and dissemination: how to achieve enough critical mass to make a publishing initiative sustainable

A detailed programme will be released shortly. Confirmed speakers are: Stephanie Dawson (ScienceOpen), Jeroen Sondervan (Utrecht University), Alexandra Jobmann (University of Bielefeld), Janneke Adema (Radical Open Access Collective) and Jadranka Stojanovski (Hrčak).
