On 3 March 2015, Wellcome Trust published: "The Reckoning: An Analysis of Wellcome Trust Open Access Spend 2013-14", which outlines how much it spend on article processing charges, the license type applied to funded articles, and the compliance rate of its open access mandate. The figures are both illuminating and distressing in regards to where the costs of open access provision may be heading. ARCS has assembled a panel of librarians, publishers, and innovators, including Neil Christensen from the University of California Press, Rebecca Kennison from KN Consultants, and Carrie Calder of Nature Publishing Group, to address questions of where open access costs may be heading and what stakeholders can do to influence cost points and models that make sense to all of us.
