"Fund to Mission" Open Access Monographs

Working with LYRASIS, the University of Michigan Press has been taking steps to develop a publishing program that aligns with its mission and commitment to equity, justice, inclusion, and accessibility. Based on these principles, the Press is now transitioning to an open access monograph model called “Fund to Mission.”

The Press aims to convert at least 75% of its monographs to open access by the end of 2023, without any author ever having to pay. The Press is working to build a sustainable model by achieving stable funding for this monograph program from three sources: $250,000 in annual funding from the library community, $400,000 in additional recurring funds from U-M, and $300,000 in other funder payments.

By committing to purchase one of the UMP EBC packages, libraries:
  • Support the conversion to open access of at least half (~45) of University of Michigan Press scholarly monographs in 2022 (We will expand this percentage if we realize our full goal, and will build on it in succeeding years);
  • Receive perpetual access to the remaining restricted frontlist titles and term access to the backlist (~1,500 titles), which will otherwise remain closed to non-purchasers;
  • Support authors’ ability to publish innovative, digital scholarship leveraging the next-generation, open-source Fulcrum platform.
