UG supports open access initiative by MIT Press

18 January 2022

As of January 2022, the UG became a sponsoring member of Direct to Open (D2O), an initiative by MIT Press. The initiative proposes a new business model aimed at realizing a sustainable transition to open access for books. By participating in D2O, libraries shift from buying MIT e-books for their own single collection to funding MIT monographs “once for the world.” The UG supports the complete D2O collection (Humanities and Social Sciences collection and STEM collection).

D2O will allow all new MIT Press scholarly monographs and edited collections (~90 titles per year) from 2022 to be published open access. In addition, participating libraries will receive access to MIT Press’s backlist/archives (~2,300 titles).
