In our white paper, "A Scalable and Sustainable Approach to Open Access
Publishing and Archiving for Humanities and Social Sciences,"  we offer a
new model that tackles head-on the predominant OA business model's major
drawback: it is based on individual payments from researchers — typically
called article-processing charges (APCs) — and offers access only to
certain types of publications.

*Our model, in contrast, asks tertiary institutions to contribute to
systemic support of the research process itself, including its entire
scholarly output — whether article, monograph, data set, conference
presentation, multimodal website, or formats not yet envisioned. Our model
looks to societies to play a central role within the scholarly
communication ecosystem, and for academic libraries to become true partners
with them.*
