This final public report, intended for the wider academic and publishing community, aims to advise in the establishment of procedures, criteria and standards concerning the set-up and functioning of the DOAB platform and service and to devise guidelines and recommendations for admission to DOAB and for its further development, sustainability and implementation." PDF from source: http://doabooks.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/doab-user-needs.pdf

 

 

NOTE: This PDF report is based on a survey of users in the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) community. It's focus is to present content, advise, and recommendations for standards, best practices, membership requirements, and other governance issues for DOAB. It looks to be a good read for people or organizations looking to publish Open Access Books & Monographs.
