New Resource: The Open Access Books Toolkit From OAPEN Now Available

From OAPEN:

The OAPEN Foundation has launched a new open access (OA) books toolkit for researchers and academic book authors. The toolkit is a free-to-access, stakeholder-agnostic resource that aims to help authors better understand OA for books, increase trust in OA book publishing, provide reliable and easy-to-find answers to questions from authors, and to provide guidance on the process of publishing an OA book.

The toolkit was created in collaboration with Springer Nature and The University of Glasgow and has been written by a global group of stakeholders from the academic community and scholarly communications organisations.

This toolkit will help book authors to make their work OA, and enable more institutional support teams to identify the right information to help their researchers.

The toolkit will be updated on a regular basis by the Editorial Advisory Board and is open to suggestions for developing this resource further.
