Alternative funding model for Open Access journals

Kyle Brady
Monday 10 January 2011

A report for Knowledge Exchange puts forward a business model based on submission fees as a way to help journals become Open Access.

The report ‘Submission Fees – a tool in the transition to open access?‘ by Mark Ware concludes that there could be benefits in adopting a model where authors pay a fee when submitting articles, but publishers are as yet unsure about the advantages. Funders also need to be more explicit about whether these costs could be claimed from research grants.
