Support the toolkit

The OAPEN open access books toolkit is a public resource governed by a independent Editorial Advisory Board (See Who is responsible for this toolkit?). The content of the toolkit has been put together by the Editorial Advisory Board and other individuals on a voluntary basis. The toolkit will remain a freely accessible and public resource for all. To cover the costs of maintenance and further development, we invite stakeholders who may actively use and welcome this public resource to consider supporting the toolkit.

We offer various options to support the toolkit, ranging from one-off contribution to ongoing collaboration. All supporters are publicly acknowledged in the toolkit.

Supporting the toolkit

  • A one-off contribution: to be determined by the contributor. One-off contributors are publicly acknowledged in the Toolkit.

  • Basic support: € 250 (excl. VAT) annually. Supporters can make use of the toolkit on their own website with a toolkit banner, a selection of articles, and links. Supporters are publicly acknowledged in the toolkit, actively contribute to the further development of this toolkit and are informed about updates, new features and general developments.

Working with the toolkit

OAPEN is happy to work with libraries, research support departments, and publishers to help integrate the OAPEN Open Access Books Toolkit in their open access activities.

We offer various options, ranging from support at events, setting up a help desk, helping with training sessions, and answering questions from researchers.

Please contact Tom Mosterd, Community Manager, for more information:

The OAPEN Open Access Books Toolkit is offered as stand-alone service, independent of other OAPEN platforms or services. Contributions are solely dedicated to the maintenance and further development of this toolkit.
