Conclusions
Keynote speech:
This talk presents the path chosen by one scholarly society for its flagship open access journal, and discusses the goals and experiences of the project from the point of view of the founding Co-Editor in Chief. The European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR), the largest political science association in Europe, launched its first open access journal, Political Research Exchange (PRX), in 2018. Like many scholarly societies, the ECPR already owns a number of successful conventional journals, from which it derives significant revenue through licensing deals with publishers. As a pure open access initiative, PRX represents a move in a novel direction. The journal was developed to establish a strong open access publishing vehicle for political science that (a) has the hallmarks of rigorous professional and scholarly quality, and (b) is run on a funding model that evens the playing field for individual researchers and can be sustained over time. Against this background, the talk discusses: (1) the considerations underpinning the launch and structure of the PRX project; (2) critical experiences from the implementation process; (3) key challenges for the future.
