Jisc Publishes Toolkit Supporting University Presses' OA Publishing Programs

Jisc introduced a toolkit designed to help university presses with sustainable OA publishing. It was developed with input from university presses, including from Liverpool, Westminster, University College London, and White Rose in the U.K. and Stockholm. Although the toolkit does have a U.K. focus, its suggestions are globally applicable. There are 11 main sections, and its content can be shared, reused, and repurposed thanks to its CC-BY license.

“A growing number of universities and academics have set up their own presses in an attempt to take back control and autonomy away from the large commercial publishing houses,” says Graham Stone, co-developer of the toolkit. “Most of these new presses are faced with the challenge of making open access publishing a reality. This toolkit will support new and existing university and library open access publishing ventures as well as those with a hybrid model.”
