In this presentation, Kehoe and Boudinot will share the findings of their research on “double dipping” occurring in the ebook marketplace. A number of well known and fringe publishers with Open Access (OA) ebook publishing models are offering these titles freely on their own publisher platforms, as well as for sale on third party aggregator platforms. This publisher practice has implications for library budgets, approval plan ordering, authors, and vendor relations. Strategies will be shared on how to identify “double dipping” publishers, how to block OA titles from approval, and questions to ask when you are reviewing publishers’ OA publication agreements.
