Luminos Open Access Model for Book Publishing

Mon, December 14, 2015 (All day) to Mon, January 18, 2016 (All day)

The University of California Press recently announced its first five scholarly monographs published through Luminos -- its Open Access publishing program for books.  This new digital publishing program operates on a model of shared financial support with titles funded through UC Press contributions, funds from Luminos Member Libraries, and a title publication fee provided by authors.  Excess revenues are used to build a waiver fund for use by future authors.  Luminos provides authors the opportunity to increase their readership, especially by global audiences, due to the open access designation.
