University of California Campuses Adopt the Opening the Future OA Model

Nine University of California (UC) campuses have signed up for the Opening the Future collective subscription model for titles from CEU Press and Liverpool University Press. As part of the deal, these campuses will get “unlimited, perpetual access to curated selections of the two publishers’ backlists,” and “the support will enable both publishers to publish new, frontlist books in Open Access (OA) format.” Opening the Future is a funding model that any publisher can adopt; when “libraries subscribe to access a curated package of backlist books and enhance their local collections,” then “their subscription pays for the dissemination of new scholarship, freely available to anyone. This program does not require book processing charges (BPCs) to finance Open Access monograph publishing, and it promotes a business model that enables publishing scholarly monographs without paywalls. The University of California’s participation is an important milestone in the program and underlines the UC’s ongoing strong commitment to opening up access to knowledge globally.”
