Supporting communities through society publishing

Of the more than 500 journals OUP publishes, over two-thirds are published in collaboration with learned societies, charitable organisations, and academic institutions. As we transition towards open access (OA), our approach is guided both by the priorities of these communities we work with and our unwavering commitment to publishing trusted research.

The financial returns journals provide to the societies and other organizations we work with support their critical community programmes, as described in the comments and videos below. We carefully consider new journal launches and flips (journals converting to OA from a subscription model) to ensure they provide a sustainable path forward for society-owned OA journals, ensuring societies can fund their community-based activities well into the future.

In this blog post, we hear from a selection of societies and editors-in-chief on the benefits of OA publishing for their respective research fields and communities, and details of activities and programmes supported by their publications.
