Guide to open access monograph publishing

The OAPEN-UK project has just published a Guide to open access monograph publishing for arts, humanities and social science researchers. OAPEN UK logo

The guide has been produced to “assist arts, humanities and social sciences (AHSS) researchers in understanding the state of play with regards to open access in the UK and what it means to them as current and future authors of scholarly monographs” (p.4).

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

It is available to read online or download as a PDF.
