Publications in Open Access media are free of charge to the readers but nevertheless need to be financed. Scholars, their institutions and libraries as well as research funders contribute. This places them in a new position within the publication chain and changes the dynamics of supply and demand of the scientific publication market. The present report analyses current business models for primary publications with respect to this dynamics and points out some chances and risks.
