The webinar presents the OpenAIRE report ‘Towards Sustainable Cooperative and Non-APC Publishing Models’, which is based on the input from the publishing and library community in Europe in consultation with African, Canadian and Latin American colleagues. It showcases and reviews non-APC and collaborative publication models and suggests a set of recommendations aimed at research funders, policymakers and the publishing community, for moving towards a more sustainable and diverse Open Access publishing future, one where collaborative and non-APC publishing could represent a viable, cost and resource effective alternative to APC-based business models.
