ALPSP Seminar: How to Sustain OA Publishing - the publisher’s and librarian’s challenge - 14 Jun 2016 Open access presents numerous challenges and opportunities to almost every aspect of a publisher's business and to a library's budgets and operations.

What does all this mean for publishers nurturing OA programs or thinking about starting one? Are there ways to ensure OA initiatives can be commercially successful without long-term subsidies or solely relying on article processing charges? Join leading library and publishing professionals in this ALPSP seminar to find out how others are tackling these questions.
