This year, the Frankfurt Book Fair is offering events, exchange and inspiration in advance of the on-site book fair from 20 to 24 October. From 11-15 October, Frankfurt will offer its new Masterclasses, 60-minute lectures featuring insights into exciting future markets as well as topical issues in publishing.
On 14 October 15:00-16:00, CCC will present, “Partnering for Innovative Business Models for Open Access Publishing” with participants including Niamh O’Connor, Chief Publishing Officer, PLOS; Jamie Carmichael, Senior Director, Information and Content Solutions, CCC; and Chuck Hemenway, Director, Business Development, CCC.
As one of the world’s most innovative Open Access (OA) publishers, PLOS has led the way in developing innovative business models that make its most selective Open Access journals truly open to read and open to publish. The Community Action Publishing (CAP) model relies on a flexible, sophisticated workflow that enables authors to publish OA easily – whether or not they are funded under a formal PLOS publishing agreement. CAP also supports emerging OA models such as the University of California multi-payer model, where the university and author share responsibility for funding APCs. In partnering with PLOS on this important initiative, CCC helps provide the scale and automation required to support the needs of a growing community of stakeholders.
