2022 Journals Assembly: Circling Back: How are UPs Approaching Open Access Today?

It has been several years since we addressed the subject of viable business models for Open Access publishing. This year’s journals assembly gathers a selection of leaders in the university press community to discuss their organizations’ approach to OA and how their journals programs have been shaped by forces including the looming pressures of Plan S, the global pandemic, and changing economies.

Stacy Lavin, Senior Managing Editor, Duke University Press; and Julie Warheit, Journals Manager, Wayne State University Press

Nick Lindsay is the Director for Journals and Open Access at The MIT Press a position he’s held since 2009. Prior to MIT Press, Lindsay worked in the journals department at the University of California Press.

Erich Staib is Associate Journals Director at Duke University Press. Before joining Duke in 2004, Staib worked in Oxford UP’s journals division for 14 years.

Antonia Pop has been working in scholarly publishing for more than a decade.
