5 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Open Access – the essential definitions Open Knowledge is any kind of information – sonnets to statistics, genes to geodata – that can be freely used, re- used, and redistributed (Open Knowledge Foundation definition) Green route has been defined as the route where copies of peer-reviewed research outputs are made freely available on the web, using an Open Access repository, alongside any formal published versions Gold route has been defined as journal publishing operating with a business model not based on subscription, but rather on either publication charges (where the author or an organization on behalf of the author funds the publishing costs) or on subsidy 5

7 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES See Report to Department of Business, Innovation and Skills UCL responses See open-access.html and price-responds.htmlhttp://poynder.blogspot.com.es/2012/06/finch-report-in-global- open-access.html price-responds.html 7 Finch Recommendations

8 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Gold Open Access is the future UK produces 6% of worlds global research output For an extra £38 million to UK HE, UK research outputs could be published as Gold OA research outputs Green OA would be for grey literature, theses 8 Finch Recommendations

9 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Finch Recommendations National licensing solutions could extend access to the National Health Service, SMEs (Small + Medium sized Enterprises) £6 million - £12 million extra a year for equality of access across HE £1 million - £2 million a year for access by the NHS 9

10 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES For an individual institutional policy, as things stand, Green is the only affordable and practical option JISC Report by John Houghton and Alma Swan - Going for Gold? – see repository.jisc.ac.uk/610http://ie- repository.jisc.ac.uk/ Finch Recommendations

11 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Debate in the UK Debate in the UK is polarised between the benefits of Green or Gold 2 solutions not mutually exclusive Finch talks about a Gold OA future, not set in a timeframe Also relies on the whole world going Gold OA Houghton and Swan look at transition issues and the position NOW World will not go Gold OA overnight For the short to medium term, Green route is more cost effective 11

14 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Access for NHS constituents to Wellcome- funded research content 14 NHS level of access2005 (% of content)2012 (% of content) No embargo month embargo month embargo27.7 % with no direct access86.7%65.6% HE level of access * No embargo month embargonot surveyed0.8 % with no direct access11.8%2.8%

17 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Journal licensing Approach being made to NHS to find funding Finch identified via NHS research budgets Discussion being led for NHS by UCL Partners Possible sources of funding: Health Education England (HEE) Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs) Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) JISC Collections can advise on procurement top-up 17

18 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Open Access Studies like Finch and Houghton/Swan suggest that the future for research dissemination is increasingly via Open Access LERU Roadmap shows that all 21 LERU universities have Green repositories What is the NHS position on Open Access? If NHS research is funded by public investment, it should be freely available 18

19 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Access for NHS constituents to Wellcome- funded research content represents an opportunity Challenge NHS in London could work with UK HE to establish a Green Open Access repository/repositories for NHS research Benefits NHS research would be more easily available NHS researchers would gain more visibility by being downloaded more often Open Access support evidence-based health-care agenda

20 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES And finally… Thank you for listening If you have been… Happy to (try and) answer any questions 20
