The widening range of sustainable economic publishing models for international university presses brings new complexities. As an African university press intent on forging internal and external partnerships, Unisa Press (University of South Africa) needs to engage with its parent institution’s open access policy as well as with international industry trends. Multiple economic publishing models within a single publishing house seem to hold the key, alongside traditional publishing processes and existing partnerships on books and journals. Major e-publishing and hosting initiatives within the academic publishing industry are mapped, to chart the way forward for this university press within Africa. Based on a broad product analysis of Unisa Press books, a set of e-publishing models and partnerships will be explored, and various funding sources are considered.
