Native-OA journal publishers are facing challenges to their existing business models quite unlike the challenges for commercial and society publishers with large subscription bases. “Transformative agreements” may be a viable option to flip paywalled subscription journals into open access, but is there also a need to transform models for native-OA journals?

Global library consortia, grant funders, and the Public Library of Science are currently exploring new business models that attempt to balance the imperatives of funder mandates, the high administrative burden of Article Processing Charges (APCs), and the need for a more equitable OA business model that supports diversity, equity, and inclusion. There are new challenges, incentives, and hurdles with cost-sharing initiatives involving multiple stakeholders.

Panelists will share the models under consideration, what is working and what isn’t, and the outcomes they hope to deliver in 2020. The session is designed to generate thoughtful conversations about models that look beyond APCs and debate the challenges of equitable cost-sharing among funders, publisher, reading institutions, publishing institutions, and other contributors to the scholarly ecosystem.

Come for the hot topic and stay for the thoughtful debate!
