Cooperation Is Key To Make Open Access Work
Knowledge Unlatched works together with partners to make Open Access (OA) increasingly present in the scholarly community and beyond! Using our expertise in OA funding we promote OA projects in a wide variety of disciplines and languages. We partnered together with publishers to create valuable Open Access collections interesting for libraries and researchers. Libraries can fund individual projects and contribute to the Open Access transition in a specific field or language, making an impact on our common effort to have scholarly content freely available for all.
Our Partner Collections

OAPEN Library Membership Program
The OAPEN Library membership programme lets libraries and their institutions contribute to the vital work of OAPEN and DOAB for libraries, scholars and the general public. Their platforms provide free and unrestricted access, improved discovery, and preservation of scholarly books.
The Open Access Data & Analytics Tool (OA DAT) allows the entire research community to make informed choices about Open Access. This unique resource combines anonymized surveys of publishers’ actual Open Access activities with disparate public data sets that have historically been difficult to use together.
