Who is responsible for this toolkit?
The Open Access Books Toolkit is a global and multi-stakeholder initiative. The toolkit is hosted by OAPEN. A broad and diverse Editorial Advisory Board is involved in the development and maintenance of the toolkit, including authors, publishers, research support staff, funders and other key stakeholders.
The toolkit was developed in close collaboration with Springer Nature and the University of Glasgow, with support from the universities of Oxford, Glasgow and Utrecht, who hosted a series of workshops during the development stage (see Story of this toolkit).
