Pilot Study Sites

We are pleased to welcome the following sites to the study:

American Anthropological Association
In conjunction with Libraria (see below), the AAA will be participating in the study, providing data and feedback into the feasibility of a cooperative publishing option.
Annual Reviews
Since 1932, Annual Reviews has offered comprehensive, timely collections of critical reviews written by leading scientists. Annual Reviews volumes are published each year for 46 focused disciplines within the Biomedical, Life, Physical, and Social Sciences including Economics.
Érudit is an interuniversity consortium and a non-profit organization. For more than 15 years, Érudit has provided the research and cultural communities with a wide range of services in digital publishing and dissemination, from data markup to document indexing through international content aggregators. Érudit disseminates 150 scholarly and cultural journals.
Libraria is a group of learned societies, journals and public interest organisations that have come together to research viable and sustainable open access alternatives to the existing ecology of scholarly publishing dominated and controlled by commercial presses. Libraria is keen to explore cooperative scenarios that may bring together societies, libraries, universities, editors and publishers in a project that proves sustainable and rewarding to all.
Open Access Network
The Open Access Network (OAN) is made up of individuals, organizations, societies, publishers, libraries, and institutions working together to Make Knowledge Public. They plan to tackle head-on the challenge of OA business models beginning with disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The OAN provides a broad and transformative solution for sustainable OA publishing and archiving that is complementary, not competitive, with other OA funding approaches.
PKP Publishing Services
PKP Publishing Services provides premium software hosting, customization, and support for PKP software applications. A division of the Public Knowledge Project, all income is invested back into PKP, to ensure financial sustainability and continued open source development.

We have also received expressions of interest from the following sites and are currently investigating their participation:

Association for Heterodox Economics
The Association for Heterodox Economics (AHE) is a learned society which aims to promote open and tolerant debate in economics through a pluralist approach to theory, method, and ideology. The Association, and its membership, seek to promote heterodox economics and perspectives in the academic, governmental and private spheres of the discipline of economics.
Open Library of Humanities
The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) is a charitable organisation dedicated to publishing open access scholarship with no author-facing article processing charges (APCs). We are funded by an international consortium of libraries who have joined us in our mission to make scholarly publishing fairer, more accessible, and rigorously preserved for the digital future.

We will continue to add new study sites to the list as they sign on.
