MIT Press opens full list of 2022 monographs via Direct to Open

MIT Press opens full list of 2022 monographs via Direct to Open – “Thanks to the support of libraries participating in Direct to Open (D2O), the MIT Press will publish its full list of 2022 scholarly monographs and edited collections open access on the MIT Press Direct platform. Thirty-seven of the eighty works are already openly available to readers around the world, and a full list of titles included in the model this calendar year may be found at the end of this announcement. D2O moves scholarly books from a solely market-based, purchase model, where individuals and libraries buy single eBooks, to a collaborative, library-supported open access model. Instead of purchasing a title once for a single collection, libraries now have the opportunity to fund them one time for the world through participant fees.  “We are thrilled to reach this milestone and make the Press’s 2022 monographs openly available,” said Amy Brand, director and publisher of the MIT Press. “In partnership with the D2O member libraries, we are creating a sustainable path for open access scholarship.” In its first year, 240 libraries from around the globe committed to support D2O. The Press has also entered into an all-in agreement with Big Ten Academic Alliance as well as central licensing and invoicing agreements with Council of Australian University Librarians, Center for Research Libraries; Greater Western Library Alliance, MOBIUS, Northeast Research Libraries, Jisc, Partnership for Academic Library Collaboration and Innovation, SCELC, and Lyrasis…”
