    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The white paper on Business Models for Open Access proposes that there is no single ideal business&lt;br&gt;
model for Open Access that can be adopted as standard. It describes the current landscape in which&lt;br&gt;
there are multiple approaches to OA publishing, many of which are adopted by OPERAS members&lt;br&gt;
to suit their particular circumstances, although the APC and BPC models still predominate especially&lt;br&gt;
among commercial publishers. The paper describes the business models adopted by members both&lt;br&gt;
from the point of view of publishers, and of service providers such as Knowledge Unlatched, as well&lt;br&gt;
as looking at models emerging elsewhere such as in the USA and at national level in some European&lt;br&gt;
countries, where interesting collaborative approaches are being undertaken. The paper analyses the&lt;br&gt;
pros and cons of different models, and concludes with some suggestions for ways of bringing greater&lt;br&gt;
stability and sustainability to Open Access publishing models.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
