Open Access: How will Universities Respond to the Rise in Total Cost of Publication?

Dr Stephen Pinfield, Professor Peter Bath and PhD student Jennifer Salter have conducted research exploring the total cost of publication for universities in the era of open access.

Their research has found that the total cost will rise in the short term, and they highlight the need to consider the total cost of publication (existing subscription costs, article processing charges plus the costs of administering them) to make sure that universities and academics gain the best value from their research publications.

You can read more in Dr Pinfield's recent post on the LSE Impact Blog.
