Re-thinking the economics of legal publishing in Australia
The Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII) is an open and free access publisher, which is the most relied upon provider of legal information in Australia. The core AustLII service contains an integrated collection of nearly 900 databases of primary and secondary legal materials that supports distinctive features such as note-up of legislation and case law together with access to the international LawCite citator. AustLII facilitates access to much online content that is not available elsewhere, including over 150 law journals and legal scholarship databases, the largest collection of free and open access journals in the subject domain of law, and served nearly 20 million journal article downloads in 2020.

Australian university libraries currently spend significant amounts on subscriptions to the main commercial legal services, via traditional subscription models. In this presentation AustLII's Philip Chung & Andrew Mowbray will discuss how AustLII is seeking to develop a ‘post-transformative agreement’ with libraries that will sustainably fund open access publishing in the subject domain of law, leading to a new economics for open access and commercial publication generally.

CAUL's Angus Cook will wrap up the webinar
