A study on future scenarios for the scholarly publishing system

The European University Association wants to better understand what could happen if scholarly read & publish agreements, and other forms of transformative agreements, continue to pave the way for open science. Technopolis explored how the scholarly publishing system is transforming. We developed a model for the scholarly publishing system to test several future scenarios with stakeholders. This led to better insights in the expected implications of the future scenarios. Based on our study, we provide conclusions and recommendations for the scholarly publishing community.
