Open Access Network

The Open Access Network (OAN) is made up of committed individuals, organizations, societies, publishers, libraries, and institutions working together to Make Knowledge Public.

Our plan is to tackle head-on the challenge of OA business models beginning with disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The OAN provides a broad and transformative solution for sustainable OA publishing and archiving that is complementary, not competitive, with other OA funding approaches.

The OAN was co-founded by Rebecca Kennison and Lisa Norberg, Principals at K|N Consultants, a US registered not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides strategic and operational guidance to academic institutions, libraries, scholarly societies, and other mission-driven organizations.
