Our publication about “Print your Personal Book – A New Service and Revenue Model for Open Access Journals” as part of the Media Convergence Handbook got published now. Mainly we described our developled plugin to individualize printing books with the help of Open Journals Systems.
Open access journals have developed new business processes and reve- nue models. Within our contribution we will describe and discuss a new service and revenue model for open access journals: the personal book printing service for the Open Journal System (OJS). To start with, we will give a short introduction to open access journals and their revenue models, new print-on-demand services, and the most often used open journal system. Building upon this state of the art, we will describe the technical prototype of our new “personal book printing service” for OJS and discuss our first experiences.
