Openly available scholarship may be a clear destination, but the paths to get there are varied and complex. This roundtable of editors, publishers, and university administrators will discuss their experiences with financial models for open-access journal publishing: author-pays, single-funder, multiple-funders, library-supported, etc. The panelists will offer an assessment of the pros and cons of different models and their thoughts on the long-term sustainability of Open Access for journals. Which models hold the most promise? What obstacles keep the panelists up at night? How can the various players within the scholarly communications ecosystem—researchers, editors, publishers, publishing services, libraries, funders, and university administration—work together more effectively?
