The program's goal is to help match libraries and other prospective funders with non-profit publishers that are seeking financial investments to sustain or transition journals or books to Open Access (OA) publishing.

The program's pilot phase, described at length in the program prospectus<https://www.lyrasis.org/content/Documents/OACIP%20PROSPECTUS_Pilot%20Project_12.07.2020.pdf>, has launched crowd-sourced investment opportunities for two journals:

Environmental Humanities <https://www.lyrasis.org/content/Pages/product-details.aspx?pid=E5BB60F3-8435-EB11-80ED-00155DE5EC03> is an OA journal published by Duke University Press that is seeking investment for editorial and publication services to support an additional OA journal issue each year for five years. As the field of environmental humanities continues its rapid growth and development, the Press and the Editors want to increase the journal's frequency in 2022 from two issues to three issues per year and to provide financial support to the journal's editorial office.

Environmental Humanities Funding Goal


  *   $30,000 by June 30, 2021

Environmental Humanities Funding Request

Five-year commitments are being sought for annual contributions at any of the following levels:
*       Level 1/$500
*       Level 2/$1,000
*Organizations may participate at the level that aligns with their budget and their assessment of the value of the journal for their community.

Combinatorial Theory<https://www.lyrasis.org/content/Pages/product-details.aspx?pid=54583FF1-DB38-EB11-80ED-00155DE5EC03> is helmed by a journal editorial board that recently left a large commercial publisher and is now establishing a new mathematics OA journal. The new journal, Combinatorial Theory, will deepen and broaden the impact of its predecessor, embark with an inclusive vision that is international in scope, and be guided by a diverse editorial team seeking top research papers from the global combinatorial community.

            Combinatorial Theory Funding Goal


  *   $25,000 by June 30, 2021
