The project ”Towards Quality-Controlled OA Monographs in Sweden: Exploring the Possibilities for a Consortium-based Approach” has delivered its final report which is entitled ”A National Consortium for Open Academic Books in Sweden” (PDF) and can be dowloaded from the OpenAccess.se website.
The investigation was funded by the National Library of Sweden, the Swedish Research Council and Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
The project’s objective was to investigate improvements for the academic book publishing process in Sweden, with particular focus on better distribution (implementation of OA) and raising the prestige of OA publishing with improved quality control (peer review). Included in this was to propose workable organization, workflow and financing.
