Quartz OA is the cooperative route to fair, sustainable and independent open access academic publishing.
We seek to bring economic sustainability to scholar-led independent open access publishing and to mobilise a community that will proactively engage in transitioning the academic publishing system towards a fair, just, sustainable and independent open access. 

This crowdfunding infrastructure is one of our first steps on the journey to developing an ecosystem enabling exchanges of services and contributions – both financial and in-kind – between the journals and publishers, individual academics, and institutions/libraries. It is part of our pilot which aims at testing our technology and bootstrapping a supportive community around independent open access publishers.

Through open collective, we are acting as an umbrella organisation to help channel funding to independent scholar-led publishing initiatives. Since quite a few of these are either unsure about their legal status or are not registered as legal entities, this mechanism will facilitate their funding helping them avoid the administrative hustle.
