Notes

Abstract: The Open Access (OA) movement has led to a rethinking and restructuring of traditional publishing funding models. A growing number of OA journals require authors to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC) in order to have their articles published in their journal. In addition, many hybrid journals (i.e. traditional-subscription-based journals) are emerging with offers to make an article OA if authors pay an APC. This practice of charging an additional APC in order to provide open accessibility to articles is seen by many publishers as a transitional method from subscription-based models to more inclusive models of funding to incorporate OA initiatives. In response to the increasing number of journals charging APCs that authors are responsible for paying in order to have open accessibility to their work, a growing number of universities are creating OA funds in order to help cover a portion of the costs. Building on research initiatives of the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), a review was conducted of thirty North American universities’ OA fund initiatives, fifteen OA journal funding models, and twelve hybrid journal funding models in order to better understand this trend. This presentation reports on the findings of our study and provides insight into how this affects libraries and institutional repositories.
