We are pleased to introduce a new feature for the OAPEN Library - ‘Collection view’ - to highlight collections from selected partners.
Four of the current OAPEN collections are connected to the research funders that partner in our Deposit service: Wellcome, the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), and the European Research Council (ERC). In addition, the collection from Knowledge Unlatched (KU) is included. OAPEN hosts all OA books from KU Select and KU Open Services.
Books that belong to a particular collection are highlighted through the logo of the partner concerned, which is added to the book’s landing page. Clicking on the logo leads to a quick overview of the entire collection. We have also added a ‘Collections’ box on the OAPEN home page, where by selecting a collection all OA books and book chapters in that collection can be viewed. Books belonging to more than one collection (e.g. KU and Wellcome) are identified through the logos from the different partners involved.
About OAPEN Foundation
The OAPEN Foundation was established in 2011 to support the transition of books to open access. The OAPEN Library hosts one of the largest collections of freely accessible academic books. OAPEN works with publishers and funders to build a quality-controlled collection of OA books, and provides services for publishers, authors, libraries and research funders in the areas of deposit, quality assurance, metadata enhancement, dissemination, and digital preservation.
OAPEN provides a Deposit service to funders supporting open access to monographs and book chapters. OAPEN aggregates OA books from funders and enables deposit by authors of OA books and single book chapters that are the result of research grants. In addition, OAPEN has been hosting OA books from Knowledge Unlatched since the introduction of KU’s unlatching model as a pilot in 2013.
