Within the global transition to open access, libraries are trying to understand the total costs paid to publishers, both for subscriptions to content and for publishing of open access articles by their corresponding authors. While libraries know what they pay for subscriptions, monitoring open access costs – namely the amount of Article Processing Charges (APCs) paid to publishers for open access publishing – can be difficult. An estimate amount can be calculated by looking at publication output data.
In this webinar, Lisa Loven, Librarian at Stockholm University, will discuss how the APCs from their corresponding authors’ publications are monitored at Stockholm University by compiling these costs is the university’s accounting system. Loven, will discuss her findings, and how they are striving to gain control of the total cost of publication.
