Re: Taking Stock of Open Access Book Publishing

In addition to "Feeding the Elephant", the H-Net network "H-Scholar" has covered open access issues from its inception in 1997--long before H-Net moved to its current Drupal platform. Going to H-Scholar and using search terms such as "Open Access", "Scholarly Communication", "SPARC," "Plan S", "Access to Resources" and "Academic Publishing" will retrieve the posts that are archived on the H-Net Commons. I am not sure how one would retrieve earlier posts on this topic--it may require resorting to the Wayback Machine.

Re: Taking Stock of Open Access Book Publishing

Thank you, Catherine, for such a clear untangling of the acronym soup that is OA book publishing. It's an extremely clear presentation. I did want to distinguish a bit between TOME, in which funds move from author parent institutions to university presses (mostly), from Lever Press, in which the members have cofounded their own press so as to have more control over the workings of the system. It's very helpful to have a publishing expert figuring out the convoluted activities and provide the overlay of logic.
