    Abstract

    We outline the work of two university presses, with assistance from the COPIM Project, in building an innovative revenue model to fund Open Access (OA) monographs at a traditional publisher. Building on library journal subscription models and on Knowledge Unlatched's approach to monograph funding, this OA publishing model (called “Opening the Future”) gives members special access to a backlist, with the revenue then used to make the frontlist openly accessible. We examine the general landscape of OA and funding models and discuss some of the challenges and benefits.
