Full disclosure: Open business data and the Publisher's Cookbook
Authors: Sebastian Nordhoff, Language Science Press; Felix Kopecky, Language Science Press
This short paper presents the three main outcomes of the OpenAire project "Full disclosure: replicable strategies for book publications supplemented with empirical data": a fully specified business model; accountacy data; and a “cookbook” containing recipes how to set up a resilient community-based book publisher. The provision of these items available for free reuse will allow other publishing projects to understand, adapt, and modify the community-based model of Language Science Press.

Shared infrastructure for next-generation books: HIRMEOS
Authors: Brian Hole, Ubiquity Press; Francesco Devirgilio, Ubiquity Press; Chealsye Bowley, Ubiquity Press
This paper will present an introduction and status report on work being done to provide shared infrastructure for open access book publishers under the HIRMEOS (High Integration of Research Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure) project. A central goal of HIRMEOS is to better integrate open access books with the open science ecosystem, in particular helping to increase the visibility and value of work from the social sciences and humanities (HIRMEOS 2018). Its wide-ranging scope includes building prototypes and ongoing systems to provide full integration with authentication and interoperability services (DOIs, ORCiD and FundRef), content enrichment services (INRIA N(E)RD), dissemination platforms (DOAB), a new peer review certification platform, Annotation services (hypothes.is), and usage and alternative metrics.

In search of a sustainable model for digital heritage repositories: a case study
Author: Nathalie Fargier, ENS de Lyon
A wide range of initiatives for developing research and data infrastructures have been funded in recent years. There is a growing concern amongst the academic community to maintain the resources invested beyond the period of the original research funding. If technical progress has been made to preserve the data themselves, few thinking and operational solutions exist for the institutions that create, disseminate, curate and preserve the data. How to ensure their existence over the medium or the long-term? This paper is a case study: it addresses the sustainability issues faced by Persée, a French platform dedicated to digitized documentary heritage that was launched in 2003. Through this example, the aim is to present, in practical terms, how an organization has to adapt and to change to sustain over time. Persée tested and combined various mechanisms (technical actions, users’ involvement, organizational evolution, marketing, funding models) with reciprocal influence, to achieve sustainability. Rather than a steady state, ensuring the long term existence of a data infrastructure is an ongoing and resource intensive process.
