It has named Knowledge Unlatched as one of their 10 to companies to watch.
The new report mentions the success of the KU Pilot project as “what was an idea which came out of left field two years ago has become a service which is being taken increasingly seriously, and which may indicate whether an open access model will be the saviour of the declining monograph format as print sales continue to decline, and as changes to research mandates put pressure on monograph publishers to deliver an OA alternative.”
