The infrastructure used by open access publishers must be driven by, and responsive to, the varied needs of an international scholarly community.
A key aspect of COPIM is therefore that it privileges close working relationships between publishers, librarians, infrastructure providers, and other members of the scholarly community.
COPIM is an international partnership comprising
universities: Coventry University, Birkbeck, University of London, Lancaster University and Trinity College, University of Cambridge;
established scholar-led open access presses, represented through the ScholarLed consortium, which consists of Open Book Publishers, punctum books, Open Humanities Press, Mattering Press, and meson press;
libraries: UCSB Library, Loughborough University Library, the British Library;
infrastructure providers: the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), Jisc ;
and membership organisations: the Digital Preservation Coalition.
Thanks to funding from OPERAS-P, a European Coordinator for Open Access Book Publishing works jointly between OPERAS-P and COPIM, based at Open Book Publishers. The European Coordinator is working to facilitate exchange between the various library and scholarly publishing communities within the EU and the COPIM project.
