Open Access Books Toolkit

Launched in Sept 2020, this Toolkit is a free-to-access resource that aims to help academic book authors to better understand open access book publishing, and to promote and increase trust in open access books. The Toolkit is governed by a global team of stakeholders representing the research community, publishers, open access organizations, funders and research support. This resource strives to be an authoritative, credible and stakeholder-agnostic resource for users worldwide.
