Overview of OA Book Publishers

In this inventory you can find publishers that have adopted or are experimenting with Open Access business models for monographs. This list also provides information about publishing and business models that are currently in use by publishers (OA policy or model). For more information about these and other potential business models for Open Access monographs please take a look at John Willinsky’s article on Monograph Funding (2008) and/or at the information collected in the OASIS sourcebook on Open Access.
