3 About us An international publisher based in France EDP Sciences belongs to learned societies, “not-for-profit” company 5 locations - 2 in Paris - Aix-en-Provence - London - Casablanca

4 Société Française de Physique - Société Chimique de France - Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles - Société Française d’Optique UdPPC Our shareholders today: learned societies Created in 1920, among the founders: Nobel Prizes: Marie Curie, Louis de Broglie, Jean Perrin Albert 1 er, Prince de Monaco - Louis Lumière - Paul Langevin, etc. About us

5 EDP Sciences Group – 5 years ago 55 Academic journals : STM articles published by year A Web Platform : articles in archive Books: 500 books, mainly in French (+ 50 new titles / year)

8 EDP Sciences Group today 55 Academi c journals : STM articles published by year A Web Platform : articles in archive Books: 500 books, mainly in French (+ 50 new titles / year) Publication of proceedings in OA: 50/year An Open Access Platform Magazines for practitioner: Dental, Pharmacy, Audiology, etc.

9 In April 2013, we launched a new platform dedicated to Open Access: Publishing partner of the scientific ccommunities

10

11 12 journals, new titles or re-launch

12 500 proceedings A set of 6 thematic proceedings “journals”

13 Just launched 20 books, Increasing

14 Articles from EDP Open - (Gold journals) and EDP Sciences - (Gold delayed)

15 Journals 1)Working with a range of societies to advise them on their best response to Open Access trends and policies. 2)For new areas, creation of titles into the OA Gold model 3)Preservation of the subscription model as long as possible and investments in Gold Open Access Publishing partner of the scientific communities Moving to Open Access and/or creating new journals

16 The journals were declining Until 2009, this journal had: A French title A subscription model A low impact factor From subscription model to Open Access Gold Until 2012, this journal had: A subscription model No electronic version A low impact factor For both, An increase of submissions, an increase of visibility and citations Since 2013: Open Access Electronic Only with APCs Since 2009, An English title An Open Access electronic- only journal, sponsored by Onema

17 From subscription model to Open Access Gold It was “easier” because : -For KMAE, the cost of the journal is paid by institutions -For Parasite, researchers in life science are used to pay for Gold Open Access  Life Sciences Versus  Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics where the Green route is the preferred option (today!) Publishing partner of the scientific communities

18 For the Green OA: Cooperation with repositories 18 - Increasing exchanges between our Journals and ArXiv - Cooperation with HAL (French repository) for CEA ( Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) Publishing partner of the scientific communities

19 Gold Open Access An established journal could move to Open Access Gold if: The journal has the “prestige” And/Or The community of authors is ready to pay services provided by the publishers (life science community comparing to mathematics) Gold model journals could be used for creation of journals in emerging fields: - Inconvenient: “predatory publishers” EDP Open want to focus on: -The quality on the peer-review. It should be the first criteria (quality and not quantity) -The quality of services to authors/readers  The label of quality and authority from a learned society is essential Publishing partner of the scientific communities

22 EDP Open Survey: Learned society attitudes towards Open Access What is the place of learned societies in an Open Access World? What are the key areas of support that learned societies might need in embracing Open Access more fully? What unique services might learned societies be in a position – through their particular missions – to support or develop as a result of more widespread Open Access? Publishing partner of the scientific communities

23 EDP Open Survey: Learned society attitudes towards Open Access The survey was answered by 33 learned societies and the results were further supplemented by a focus group held at the annual UKSG meeting in Harrogate in April % in the STM field -remaining respondents in the social sciences (16%) and arts and humanities (9%).

24 EDP Open Survey: Learned society attitudes towards Open Access Key findings include: Learned societies overwhelmingly agree that Open Access will inevitably place some learned societies’ journals into financial jeopardy. Competing with large Open Access specialist publishers was also considered a significant challenge for learned societies. Gold Open Access is the Open Access method that is least offered by learned society journals, however nearly two-thirds of learned societies indicated that they would like to be offering this option. Publishing partner of the scientific communities

25 EDP Open Survey: Learned society attitudes towards Open Access Key findings include: With so many journals being published Open Access of dubious origin, learned societies should look to endorse content with a stamp of quality and authority. Collaboration between learned societies could help in the transition to Open Access, by pooling resources and sharing complex tasks. Publishing partner of the scientific communities

27 Conclusion Publishing partner of the scientific communities We have the tools and the knowhow to discuss and explore with our partners the best option for their titles The publisher is a service provider and should provide the best quality at the better price. More than ever before, with so many journals being published Open Access of dubious origin, learned societies should look to endorse content with a stamp of quality and authority.
