This report suggests that the scholarly publishing market is most likely to move toward either publisher-owned or community-owned Open Access platforms over the long term depending on the actions of stakeholders, e.g., scientific communities. In this respect, both national and regional consortia are likely to be decisive both for the development and implementation of Open Access strategies and their eventual outcomes in terms of prevalent publisher-library agreements and associated infrastructures.
