"Fund to Mission" Open Access Monographs Model

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 75% (~60) of University of Michigan Press scholarly monographs in 2023;
  • Receive perpetual access to the remaining restricted frontlist titles and term access to the backlist (~2,000 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.

The Platform - Fulcrum

When a library invests in UMP EBC content they are not just investing in open access, but also supporting the sustainability of open source, community accountable infrastructure.

The Fulcrum hosting platform was developed at the University of Michigan Press with initial funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Fulcrum is a community-based, open source publishing platform that helps publishers present the full richness of research outputs in a durable, discoverable, accessible and flexible form from their authors. As well as books, the UMP EBC contains long-form digital works featuring integrated multimedia, podcasts, and even 3D models.

As a leading community-developed, open source platform for digital scholarship, Fulcrum offers the best possible version of UMP titles, including features such as:
