Open Access: Publishing OA Monographs

OA Monograph Publishing

Research England is developing a policy to support open access monographs for the post-2021 REF,  recognizing the complexity of publishers' business models, some readers' preferences for print format, and the benefits arising from free-to-read scholarly output.

The OAPEN-UK project has developed a guide to open access monograph publishing for arts, humanities and social science researchers. The guide aims to help researchers to understand the opportunities and challenges of publishing a scholarly monograph in open access.
