Aasheim, Jens H.; Schirrwagen, Jochen; Kuchma, Iryna; Franck, Gwen; Hermans, Emilie; Rettberg, Najla; Steiner, Tobias

This OpenAIRE1 report is based on input from the publishing and library community collected
during and in connection with the OpenAIRE workshop on “Sustainable  non-APC  Open  Access
Publishing Models”, held at Bielefeld University on February 26-27, 2019.2 It seeks to:  
- Showcase and review selected non-APC and collaborative publication models in the context of
the current Open Access publishing landscape.  
- Suggest 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 for Open Access publishing.   
In the current landscape collaborative and non-APC Open Access publishing channels are facing
several challenges: Predictable access to funding and resources to finance these models and
medium to long term planning and stability. Moreover, visibility and reputation of these channels
compete with APC-based and subscription channels for the research community’s perception of
quality and prestige as well as for the awareness of research funders and institutions.
