"Efforts continue to transform academic book publishing in the humanities and social sciences from a user-pays to an open-access, stakeholder-funded business model. (The Elephant has previously covered some of these efforts here and here.) Two players in this field, the Open Access Scholarly Publishing Association (OASPA) and Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem (TOME), took stock of the progress made and challenges remaining in fall 2021. Here is an update."
