Business plan toolkit for open-access journals

A new toolkit by SPARC Europe aids the compilation of a business plan for open access journals.

Anyone who is thinking about founding a new open access journal will find valuable pointers in the Business Plan Toolkit (link opens a new window) launched by SPARC Europe in early 2016.

The document explains how to structure a business plan and provides tips on analysing the market situation, developing an operational, marketing and financial plan, and risk assessment.
