Stockholm University Library joins Knowledge Unlatched Pilot


Category : Nyheter E-resurser Humaniora Samhällsvetenskap

In order to increase publications being distributed the Stockholm university library has joined the global open access project Knowledge Unlatched Pilot.

Knowledge Unlatched Pilot’s target is to make open access of scientific e-literature easier on a global scale through co-operation between university libraries. Stockholm University Library has therefore joined other libraries in the project that will start by introducing 28 book titles from thirteen publishers. These first titles have been choosen in order to reflect the broad range of publishing in humanities and social sciences.

– As we see it it is important to support open access projects in the monographs area. The open access discussion concerning articles have come a long way but concerning monographs it has been falling behind and therefore we welcome a project aiming a increased circulation says Chief librarian Wilhelm Widmark.

Authors of books will be compensated upon publication with a compensation that has been agreed in advance for releasing material to a Creative Commons-licence. The aim of the pilot project is to create a sustainable business model for open access and increasing the spread of among other monographs.

A condition for the implementation is that a minimum of 200 libraries world wide join the project. The Stockholm University Library is one of two libraries in Sweden to have joined and is keen on seeing more Swedish libraries joining them to reach the requested number of members in the pilot project.
