Article published on open access in monograph publishing
Philip Shaw, Angus Phillips, and Maria Bajo Gutiérrez from OICP have published a new article in Publishing Research Quarterly on open access in monograph publishing. The article uses evidence from an OICP survey in 2021 to investigate the state of the transition of monographs to Open Access publication. The paper highlights publishers’ opinions on the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic upon monograph publishing and on the future of the monograph, and the pressures and challenges faced by monograph publishers. The survey demonstrated clearly that most publishers see monograph publishing in the humanities and social sciences as being in transition, with Open Access expected to play a key part in the future.
