Title: Open Access Journals Support in Canada
Author: Morrison, Heather
Subject Keywords open access;journal hosting;economics

Abstract: The purpose of this research was twofold: to establish data indicating the current extent of support for open access publishing at Canadian university presses and libraries, and to identify economic models for further transition most likely to enjoy broad-based support. This research builds on an ARL study of journal hosting support by ARL member libraries, a qualitative investigation of open access publishing in Canada conducted by Kathleen Shearer, and models for transition developed by a number of initiatives, such as the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Particle Physics Publishing (SCOAP3) and the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
