This publication (100 page PDF) began as a book sprint in 2018 and has recently been released in revised form. By 'sustained' here they are talking in the economic sense, which is their focus, and much of the discussion relies on market economics. They're also much more interested in the 'meso' level - universities and institutions - than the micro level of individual researchers. " The authors argue that "for change to be sustained it requires both community institutions that support the new status quo (establishing clear definitions of requirements, clarity on the process for selection, and transparency and trust), and communities themselves (eg funders, research performing organisations, and scholarly communities) that support change." I'm not really comfortable with this market-focused approach that defines scholarly activity as commodity. Via JISC.
