Opening the Future welcomes newest library supporter, Portland State University | OtF News

CEU Press and COPIM are pleased to announce that the library at Portland State University (PSU) is the latest subscriber member to Opening the Future (OtF). Founded in 1946, PSU in Oregon grew into a diverse public research university and now has 26,000 students and more than 200 degree programs in subjects ranging from Accounting to World History.

PSU is one of the first libraries to choose an ‘OA Supporter Membership’ with OtF. Some institutions may not wish to sign up to one of our book packages, or may not be able to, but they still want to support the Open Access mission and monographs that CEU Press publishes. For these institutions we created the OA Supporter Membership. With this choice there are no backlist books to incorporate into the library’s catalogue but their membership fee allows CEU Press to make new books open in ways that do not burden authors without research grants to pay book processing charges.
