Open Access Planning
Forecast accurately the future performance of your portfolio
APC revenue forecasting is unique in its complexity. One needs to conduct four separate forecasts for each of the four drivers of the Open Access publishing model: submissions, processing time, acceptance rate, and effective APCs.
Although it is a challenging exercise, all drivers can be forecasted with some accuracy: by September submissions have adjusted to the new JIFs, processing time is a function of resourcing along the peer review pipeline, and acceptance rates and effective APCs are typically specific and stable for combinations of journals and regions.
Our planning exercise takes into account all drivers of performance. We can help you achieve fact-based forecasts with high accuracy.
