Subscribe to Open: The Challenges and Successes of an Innovative Model for Open Access, a Sponsored Session with University of Toronto Press

This session will focus on the Subscribe to Open (S2O) model as a way to achieve open access. S2O is an equitable, innovative and pragmatic model that works within the existing subscription procurement infrastructure. As a unique model that does not rely on APCs, S2O strives to achieve equity in access to publishing for all authors, regardless of research funding available.

The session will feature presentations from two non-profit publishers and one non-profit aggregator using the S2O model as well as a library that supports the model. The panelists will share learnings and successes from their use and implementation of S2O, including the rationale for selecting S2O among the plethora of OA models available. Annual Reviews is the first publisher to pilot S2O in 2020 and has extended the model to all of their journals for 2023. Annual Reviews will discuss its experience flipping an entire publisher’s portfolio using the S2O model. University of Toronto Press will share the perspective of a university press program in applying the S2O model to a journal launch. Project MUSE will discuss its plans to implement S2O to support open access across multiple journals. Columbia University Library will present its experience in supporting various models of OA, with particular focus on the S2O model and its benefits for libraries.

Presenters will share with the community some of the benefits and challenges of S2O from the perspective of publishers, aggregators, and libraries.
