The Open Access Network (OAN) is made up of committed individuals, organizations, societies, publishers, libraries, and institutions working together to make knowledge public. The OAN’s plan is to tackle head-on the challenge of OA business models, beginning with disciplines in the humanities and social sciences but with solutions applicable to all disciplines. The OAN provides a broad and transformative solution for sustainable OA publishing and archiving that is complementary, not competitive, with other OA funding approaches. The OAN is a legal DBA project of K|N Consultants, Ltd., a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides strategic and operational guidance to academic institutions and organizations; academic, national, and public libraries; learned and scholarly societies; scholarly publishers; university presses; government agencies; private foundations; and other mission-driven organizations struggling to adjust to the rapid changes in higher education.
