Path to Open is a community-supported model to publish scholarly ebooks in the humanities and social sciences sustainably and equitably.

As part of nonprofit ITHAKA, JSTOR shares a mission with libraries and presses to improve access to knowledge, and together we can fulfill this mission. We believe that the benefits of sharing knowledge with researchers everywhere, including in low-income nations, far exceed the obstacles. This is why, in line with our mission to expand and enhance access to knowledge and education for people all over the world, we are collaborating with university presses on Path to Open, a new pilot program that supports the academic community’s efforts to increase bibliodiversity in scholarly ebooks and invest in sustainable, open access solutions while reducing financial risk.
