Libraries Test a Model for Setting Monographs Free – Wired Campus - Blogs

Publishers love it when their books find readers—but they also need to cover the costs of turning an idea into a finished monograph. Now a nonprofit group called Knowledge Unlatched is trying out a new open-access model designed to make both librarians and publishers happy. Here’s how the “unlatching” works: Participating libraries pick a list of scholarly books they want to make open access. They pool money to pay publishers a title fee for each of those books. The title fees are meant to cover the cost of publishing each book; publishers calculate what they think is fair and share those estimates with the Knowledge Unlatched group. Authors and publishers decide which Creative Commons license they’re comfortable using. The moving spirit behind Knowledge Unlatched is Frances Pinter, a longtime publishing entrepreneur and the founding publisher of Bloomsbury Academic.
