The Knowledge Unlatched team is aware that making journals and books Open Access alone is not enough. Instead, these books, chapters and articles also need to be used by researchers and students to have an impact. Every day we are working to improve the visibility of our works, especially to reach those communities who otherwise wouldn’t have access to such scholarly materials.
Therefore, we are committed to actively partner with leading discovery systems, hosting platforms and organizations that can help us disseminate these Open Access materials. We are using online and offline promotion channels to share our content as widely as possible in new media formats and channels.
We made it a routine to utilize and expand on these options, helping us to report back growing impact figures to our library and publisher community. Every quarter we are doing this, while we always seek to include new metrics that help to demonstrate the impact of Open Access works.
