The University of St Andrews supports the development of a broad and vibrant ecosystem of affordable publishing and is delighted to see the emergence of new and innovative business models. Opening the Future creates a new democratic foundation to support open access monographs, reflecting the challenges facing monograph authors under existing OA models where a ‘Book Processing Charge’ is required. As well as supporting open access book publishing costs, Opening the Future provides perpetual unlimited access to a range of ebooks from the existing back catalogue. It truly is a win-win for all concerned.”
