Published Tuesday 29 September 2015

Helpful guidance for researchers from the OAPEN-UK project

The OAPEN-UK project has developed a Guide to open access monograph publishing for arts, humanities and social science researchers. The guide aims to help researchers to understand the opportunities and challenges of publishing a scholarly monograph in open access.

It starts with an overview of open access publishing and business models for monographs and then goes on to address common concerns of researchers such as legal issues, financial concerns and quality.

The guide is available online at http://oapen-uk.jiscebooks.org/oaguide/ and to download as a PDF
