Developing Open Access Electronic Journals: A Practical Guide
David Solomon writes: "Developing Open Access Electronic Journals: A Practical Guide is to my knowledge the first comprehensive book on creating an open access (OA) journal. Thousands of OA journals have been developed over the last 15 years and are becoming an important means of disseminating research and scholarship. While creating a new OA journal need not be difficult, it takes a wealth of specialized knowledge that most people interested in creating such journals lack. The goal of the book is to provide the essential information needed and guide someone through the process of designing and operating a successful OA journal"
