We believe that open access for readers should not be traded for new barriers to authorship. The Open Book Collective’s innovative collective funding model is an indispensable pillar of our mission-driven publishing program, dedicated to scaling small and to bibliodiversity. We are deeply grateful to Macalester College for supporting this vision.
