  "abstract": "<p>The white paper on Business Models for Open Access proposes that there is no single ideal business<br>\nmodel for Open Access that can be adopted as standard. It describes the current landscape in which<br>\nthere are multiple approaches to OA publishing, many of which are adopted by OPERAS members<br>\nto suit their particular circumstances, although the APC and BPC models still predominate especially<br>\namong commercial publishers. The paper describes the business models adopted by members both<br>\nfrom the point of view of publishers, and of service providers such as Knowledge Unlatched, as well<br>\nas looking at models emerging elsewhere such as in the USA and at national level in some European<br>\ncountries, where interesting collaborative approaches are being undertaken. The paper analyses the<br>\npros and cons of different models, and concludes with some suggestions for ways of bringing greater<br>\nstability and sustainability to Open Access publishing models.</p>",
