It is with great pleasure that I am able to post this report resulting from the research undertaken by Ben Taplin & Carolyn Alderson of JISC Collections.  Ben & Carolyn contacted a variety of publishers about the four business models for patron-driven acquisition identified in the E-BASS25 project, and sought their feedback on each of the models.  As always, it is interesting to see things from the publishers’ point of view so I would encourgae all those interested to read the report:
