BioMed Central to consult funders and librarians over Open Access payment model

BioMed Central, the Open Access publisher, announced today that it is to consult with librarians and funding bodies about future mechanisms for funding Open Access publishing. The consultation workshop will take place in London on 31 August. The conclusions of the meeting will be published in September.

The workshop will focus on four key discussion points:

  • Payment model for Open Access: membership / article-processing charges
  • Payment mechanisms for Open Access; differences and similarities with subscriptions
  • Role of the library and the funding body in the Open Access world
  • Collaboration between institutions/librarians and funding bodies: can mechanisms be found to channel funding streams via the institution/library to pay for Open Access?

    Head of Marketing and Sales Natasha Robshaw explains why the consultation has been organised, and what BioMed Central hope to gain from the day;

    "In this new environment of Open Access publishing our business model is still evolving. At BioMed Central we believe we need the advice and involvement of the community to help us with important issues such as payment models to ensure the continued success of Open Access publishing. We hope that this consultation will allow us to explore how to channel funds to pay for Open Access publishing in the future in a way that truly fits the needs of the community."

    Sixteen invited representatives of the library and funding communities have accepted BioMed Central's invitation to the one-day meeting. They include:

    Michael Leach, Harvard University, USA
    Nicole Pinhas, INSERM, France
    Stphanie Lux, INSERM, France
    Antonio Fantoni, La Sapienza , Italy
    Ann Okerson, Yale University, USA
    Norbert Lossau, Bielefeld University, Germany
    Mary Ryan, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, USA
    Fytton Rowland, Loughborough University, UK
