Pioneering libraries and publishers are collaborating to pilot the next stage(s) of our paradigmatic shift to an Open Access ecosystem of scholarly research. MIT is working with the Royal Society of Chemistry and the 10 campuses of the University of California are in discussions with several publishers about piloting offsetting agreements in the US market to begin in 2019. These are critical steps forward in transforming scholarly publishing to Open Access models, with the understanding that moving to full Open Access is a shared goal. These libraries are taking bold steps forward to jointly explore opportunities for transitioning to sustainable open access business models with publishers who are ready to make these changes.
