The Berghahn Open Anthro Journey: Embarking on a discipline-driven equitable open access initiative, Part III

by Vivian Berghahn, Managing Director and Journals Editorial Director

The impact on authorship and readership that Berghahn Open Anthro – Subscribe-to-Open has had since the launch of the pilot has been substantial. There has been a 700% increase in downloads from 2019 when content was paywalled to 2022. We have seen a 200% increase by the end of 2022 from the end of 2020.

Scholarly outputs from 1350 authors from 63 countries were represented between 2020-2022. Prior to the launch of BOA-S2O, there were only 13 open access articles published by authors paying APCs.
