Q: What is the OAeBU report? 

This report comes from the work of the Open Access eBook Usage Data Trust project. The purpose of this project is to develop and test infrastructure, policy and governance models to support a diverse, global data trust for usage data on open access (OA) monographs. As an international cooperative managed by the community of stakeholders in scholarly communications and operating a secure data repository and member dashboards, this data trust aims to align with the priorities of authors and institutions while respecting emerging ethical norms in the use of metrics.

The University of Michigan Press is one of five pilot partner publishers to contribute open access ebook usage data to the project, and to receive a customized report aggregating usage data from a range of sources.
