What’s in a number? A closer look at Open Access readership data

In order to boost the publication of Open Access books, KU Leuven Libraries reserved a substantial part of the KU Leuven Fund for Fair Open Access, established in 2018, to help finance Open Access books published by Leuven University Press.

Since its launch in 2018, nine monographs have been published in Open Access thanks to the financial support of the Fund, with another 29 subsidy applications approved. 

We are happy to see that the Fair OA Book Fund is a great success, not only in the amount of books, but also in terms of the reach of these books which is demonstrated by the readership data that we now share online for each OA book published with the support of the Fund.
