3 Stimulate use of development knowlege to solve development problems The goal of open development, …is to improve the lives of people around the world through access to information. We need to recognize that development knowledge is no longer the sole province of the researcher, the scholar, or the ivory tower. The aim is to open the treasure chest of the World Banks data and knowledge to every village health care worker, every researcher, everyone. Robert B. Zoellick, Former President, The World Bank Group, Georgetown University, September 2010 Dr. Kim, Current President, The World Bank Group Open Knowledge Repository Part of Larger Open Development Trend

7 Why an Open Access Policy? To provide greater access to Bank research and knowledge outputs To encourage innovation allowing use and re-use (i.e., derivative works, translations, text-mining,etc.) To join a growing Open Access community (e.g., governments, universities, and other institutions) To align Banks Publishing with Banks Open Development Agenda

8 Policy Scope WB OA Policy applies to manuscripts and accompanying data sets: (a)resulting from research, analysis, and economic and sector work; (b)which have undergone peer review or have been otherwise vetted and approved for release to the public; and (c)for which approval for release is given on or after July 1, 2012.

10 World Bank Publishing Intranet web site

11 Internal Training Step-by-Step Guides for Authors

12 Features 1.Optimal Discoverability: Interoperable with other repositories Adherence to Open Access standards (Dublin Core metadata and OAI-PMH) Systematic metadata curation process 2.Intuitive Interface: Several browse options, advanced search, most viewed content, citation information, permanent links, etc. Built on DSpace - OA platform 3.Allows Use, Reuse and Building-on Banks Work: CC BY copyright license 4.New Content: Content published by external Publishers

13 FEATURE: Advanced Metrics

14 1 million downloads in 1 year (44% from developing countries) Usage: Total Downloads, First Year

15 Interoperability & Discoverability DSpace is limited in flexibility for metadata harvesters. Current solution: Allow filtering via facets like country and topic to create virtual sets. The resultant XML output is OAI-PMH compliant and exportable. Working on upgrade to allow mobile improved search. Indexing in Google Scholar. Internal pressure from WBG regions for local language searching and content

16 Costs $120K in development, 2011 to date (August, 2013) Contracted a Belgian developer Hosting cost $25K/year, hosted in cloud On-going costs approximately $30-40K 2 FTEs, 1 repository manager, a project manager and.5 FTE for marketing & social media support

17 Conclusions 1.Still in early stages in Open Access publishing. 2.Academic publishers are rebuilding their business models: some embrace, some resist and some hide. 3.Embargo periods vary per publisher, only 1 publisher has agreed so far (Routledge, Elsevier being negotiated). 4.Open Repositories built on open software (DSpace, ePrints) increase dissemination significantly… but marketing & outreach are still important. 5.WB focused on technical innovations and building new partnerships to drive usage and discovery
