Project Details


Open Book Futures is a project to significantly expand key infrastructures created by COPIM to achieve a step change in how community-owned open access book publishing is delivered.

Open Book Futures will follow the principles of ‘Scaling Small’ that guided the work of the COPIM project, further developing the infrastructures, business models, networks and resources that are needed to deliver a future for Open Access books led not by large commercial operations, but by communities of scholars, small-to-medium-sized publishers, not-for-profit infrastructure providers, and scholarly libraries.

Open Book Futures is supported by the Research England Development (RED) Fund, and Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin.
