OA & OER Aggregation

Included with CloudSource as a default aggregated open access collection, CloudSource OA provides libraries with direct access to all known global open access articles, eBooks, eTextbooks, and open educational resources (OER)—and the tools they need to make the most of them.

The Future of Publishing

Top publishers and high-impact journals are publishing more OA content—in more disciplines—than ever before.

In fact, 59% of all scholarly articles published in 2022 were open access. If the trend continues, by 2040, all scholarly content will be published with an open license. 

Yet, despite the prevalence and increasing availability of OA content in popular subscription databases, subscription costs continue to rise with increases of 4-6% per year.
