To describe the issues we are trying to address, I want to share with you a brief sort
of case study chosen by my colleague Charles Watkinson, AUL for publishing at the
U-M Library and director of the U-M Press. This university press publishes about
15% of its books in OA, mostly through funding from Knowledge Unlatched.
The book shown on the slide was published by the U-M Press in 2016 (and
"unlatched" then as well) by an author aiming for promotion to full professor at
Stanford. The author was interested in OA especially for reaching readers abroad,
and given the book's interdisciplinary subject matter, OA also seemed especially
important. But the author wanted to understand the use of the book and be able to
make a case about its impact beyond it winning a book award and quoting sales
figures, and U-M Press wanted to reassure the author that he had chosen the right
publisher and made a good decision in going with OA.
Here’s what’s next.
