Pilot project OAPEN-CH

A pilot study on the effects of Open Access on book publications

Within the pilot project OAPEN-CH the aim is to share lessons learned from the publication process of Open Access monographs, and to collect data on use, sale and costs of book publications in both printed and digital form. The results will be published in a study.

The SNSF invites academic publishers interested in a joint learning process concerning Open Access book publications to participate in the pilot project.
