Springer Nature publishes new report on The OA Effect

White Paper Cover

7 November 2017

Springer Nature has published a white paper called The OA effect: How does open access affect the usage of scholarly books?

This report presents the first major comparative analysis of usage data for OA and non-OA scholarly books, and provides an informed view of how a book benefits from OA publication. It also highlights the challenges involved in measuring the impact of OA on scholarly books and suggests that there is much to do across the whole scholarly communications network in supporting authors and their funders.
