Knowledge Unlatched

UBL supports Knowledge Unlatched. Via this non-profit organisation libraries can share the costs for the open access publishing of monographs. The model does not require authors or their institutions to finance the publication.  As soon as the required number of consortium libraries show their interest, the monograph will be made open access.

By means of this cooperative participation, libraries create a sustainable model for open access books.
Participating publishers are among others: Brill, Cambridge University Press, University of Michigan Press and in particular Language Science Press.
