New Guide Describes Models for Open-Access Journals

By Jennifer Howard

Want to take your scholarly journal open access but confused about how to pay for it? The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, or Sparc, has just posted a guide to “Income Models for Supporting Open Access.”

Written by publishing consultant Raym Crow, the guide looks at both supply-side and demand-side income models that include article processing fees, internal and external subsidies, and “contextual e-commerce” approaches. It gives examples of journals that fall into each category, and allows users to share their experiences with open-access journal publishing.

“These resources will be a useful tool both for publishers exploring new potential sources of income and for libraries weighing where to direct meager library funds,” Sparc says.
