The MIT Press Shares the Successes of Its Direct to Open Program

The MIT Press published an impact report on the first 3 years of its Direct to Open (D2O) program, which “is a sustainable framework for open access monographs that shifts publishing from a solely market-based, purchase model where individuals and libraries buy single eBooks, to a collaborative, library-supported open access model.”

“D2O has exceeded expectations in its first three years, and we’re thrilled to share the impact,” says Amy Brand, director and publisher at the MIT Press. D2O has funded 240 books so far, and they are reaching an average of 3,061 downloads per title. The MIT Press is currently accepting commitments from libraries and consortia for D2O in 2025.

For more information, read the press release.
