Lever initiative

The Lever Initiative is a project on open access book publishing, supported by The Oberlin Group of liberal arts colleges (in the USA). "This project explores whether libraries collectively could launch a sustainable Open Access press to provide scholars editorial attention worthy of their best work in whatever form this might take – and offer it to the world." In December 2013 they put a review of "the current open access book publishing landscape" and they had an online survey of academics about their views on open book publishing: the survey closed in December and there is a preview of results in the December 2013 newsletter which is on the Lever website.
