Position paper – Open Access Transformation of Books
Scholar-led Open Access publication infrastructure is currently a much discussed topic. Following the Open Access transformation of journals, which has been going on for years now, the focus is now on the open access transformation of books. In the light of this transformation, five experts from the Arbeitsgemeinschaft (AG) Universitätsverlage, of which also bu,press is a member, have developed a position paper, which, starting from a survey of institutional publication services, highlights current fields of action and scope for research institutions in the field of non-commercial infrastructures for OA books.
