What’s going on in the world of open access book publishing?
Current developments and an outlook to the future of OA books at Springer Nature
With an open access books programme dating back to 2012, Springer Nature is one of the leading OA book publishers. The latest results of a survey conducted by Springer Nature show a largely positive perception of OA books among both OA and non-OA book authors. What are the key motivations for authors to choose open access? What are the remaining hurdles? And what role do funders play?
In this talk, Ros Pyne gives an overview of the latest developments in the realm of open access books and introduces the Springer and Palgrave Macmillan OA book programmes. She also provides an insight into upcoming trends and initiatives.
