PCG Survey Reveals That Libraries Provide OA Funds

Publishers Communication Group (PCG) released its “Open Access Library Survey,” a white paper that presents the results of a survey of 150 librarians from 30 countries on their gold open access (OA) practices. Although gold OA is considered an “author pays” model, libraries have begun to provide funds for these publications.

Almost 25% of respondents noted that libraries offer funding for article processing charges (APCs), some of which comes from existing materials budgets. According to the survey, OA resources are cataloged by 72% of libraries.

“Because PCG stands at the crossroads of librarians, researchers and publishers, we field questions from all sides regarding open access publishing and its future impact on these stakeholders,” says Kate Lara, PCG’s head of market research. “The results of our study largely confirmed our suspicion that OA is presently a small but growing issue for librarians and institutions, while revealing that there are multiple and varied views into how the librarian can play a role in it.”
