Challenges and opportunities (Open Access monographs)
Eve, Martin Paul (2014) Challenges and opportunities (Open Access monographs). In: Beyond Open Access, 5 Dec 2014, International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers, London, UK. (Unpublished)

That said, cause for optimism is to be found amid recent experiments that have demonstrated the value of such an undertaking. In this talk, I will set out the difficulties and the way in which some publishers are seeking to overcome them, as well as some proposed future directions for open access books.
