Swets Introduces Open Access Management Service

Swets has a new open access (OA) service to help librarians manage their OA-related workflows. Library administrations have to pay publishers article processing charges (APCs) for gold OA papers, and Swets’ new APC management service helps libraries with those invoices and payment processes.

The service’s features include options to keep track of spending, a single contact for all publisher relationships, concise handling of micro-transactions, reduction in the number of invoices for processing, and detailed reporting on transaction statuses.

“APC management is costing libraries and institutions more time and resources than is necessary,” says David Main, Swets CEO. “There’s a direct and urgent need for this service” and Swets’ goal was to “put solid processes in place” for customers as its first step in promoting OA.

Swets aims to improve and standardize other parts of OA-related workflows in the future.
