This talk introduces the challenge of operating with the entangled relations of value (e.g. financial relations) and values (e.g. social relations) within scholarly publishing, with a particular focus on how this plays out in the development of Open Access publishing infrastructures. In doing so, it uses the Open Book Collective platform as a case study, discussing the ways in which we have negotiated the ongoing reconfiguration of value/values in its development. The talk also presents some of the aims of the Open Book Collective and the potential benefits its work might bring for both publishers/OA service providers and libraries/other supporters.
