Open Access Monograph Publishing

Maria Bonn, associate university librarian for publishing at the University of Michigan Library, has published "Free exchange of ideas: Experimenting with the open access monograph" in the latest issue of College & Research Libraries News. It's an interesting article that stresses the differences between OA journal and OA book publishing. Though a strong proponent of the latter, Bonn provides an excellent analysis of the challenges, as well as the opportunities, of applying open access models to monograph publishing.
