A partnership in support of Open Access to scholarly journals in HSS and arts and letters
Authors: Elise Bergeron, Érudit; Emilie Paquin, Érudit
This paper presents the evolution and the key issues of the Partnership in Support of Open Access to Scholarly Journals in HSS and Arts and Letters. First proposed to the community by Erudit and the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) - and now driven by Coalition Publi.ca, a strategic partnership created in the spring of 2017 by Erudit and the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) - this Partnership establishes an innovative model for collaboration between university libraries and scholarly journals in transition toward complete open access.

Sustainability in publishing: An Open Access publisher’s view
Author: Martyn Rittman, MDPI
Sustainability is an essential part of the work of publishers. Here, the view of an open access publisher, MDPI, is presented with regards to sustainability within publishing. MDPI’s understanding of sustainability is given and some of the concrete actions it leads to. These include supporting umbrella initiatives, exploring alternative business and editorial models, elements of open science, and ensuring the long-term sustainability of published content. Our aim is to demonstrate actions that could be taken by other publishers and to invite dialog with the broader research community for how a large open access publisher can contribute to a sustainable knowledge ecosystem.
