3 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Scholarly Communication – New Definition  Scholarly Communication – New Definition  New Developments – Gap Survey  New Services - Overlay Journals  New Tools - Digital Curation  Conclusion

4 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Scholarly Communication - what do we mean?  Scope of the term is wider than "scholarly publishing" and covers the authoring, publishing (in a broad sense), and reading of information produced by members of the academic community for teaching or research. "Information" in this context may be in a variety of formats. (CURL/SCONUL definition)  Stakeholders usually defined simply as  Authors + Publishers + Librarians + Readers  Other stakeholders not usually included in the debate  This needs to change

5 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Definition  Scholarly Communication encompasses everything that researchers, teachers and learners need in order to be effective – and this makes Repositories important  New definition  The authoring, publishing, dissemination, and reading of information produced for teaching, learning or research in whatever format,  with the tools, measures and systems needed to provide access to and store these materials in perpetuity  It is an inclusive definition – of both partners and processes

6 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES New Developments – Gap Survey  Scholarly Communication – New Definition  New Developments – Gap Survey  New Services - Overlay Journals  New Tools - Digital Curation  Conclusion

7 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Gap Survey of our understanding of journal publishing  Analysis of data on scholarly journals publishing  Published under the auspices of the Research Information Network   Research undertaken by EPS Ltd

10 New Services – Overlay Journals  Scholarly Communication – New Definition  New Developments – Gap Survey  New Services - Overlay Journals  New Tools - Digital Curation  Conclusion

11 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES RIOJA  RIOJA – funded by JISC Capital Programme (April 2006)  Repository Interface for Overlaid Journal Archives  Academic-led project  UCL  University of Cambridge  University of Glasgow  Imperial College London  Cornell University

12 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Deliverables  RIOJA tool to support automated interactions between journals and open access repositories  Demonstrator Journal in Astrophysics and Cosmology  Using Cornell University's open source DPubS software  Interfacing with and overlaid on the arXiv subject repository  Content of the demonstrator journal will be test papers  Submitted to and housed on the arXiv server  Illustrate the use of the RIOJA tool to facilitate the overlay of peer review onto repository content

13 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES And…  RIOJA  Will explore social and economic aspects of building certification onto repositories in support of the creation of overlay journals  Carry out a survey of researchers from the field of Astrophysics and Cosmology  Aim to deliver a continuation plan for the demonstrator journal, founded on a cost-recovery business model tested on the Astrophysics and Cosmology community  RIOJA has strong academic support  Impetus for the RIOJA project comes directly from academic users of the arXiv subject repository

14 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES New Tools – Digital Curation  Scholarly Communication – New Definition  New Developments – Gap Survey  New Services - Overlay Journals  New Tools - Digital Curation  Conclusion

15 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES LIFE – Preservation and Digital Curation Findings  LIFE has developed a Generic Preservation Model for costing digital curation at an item level  Preservation = Technology watch + Preservation frequency * Overall preservation action  Preservation = t * TEW + (t / ULE + PON) * (CRS + UME + PPA + QAA)  Worked out by look at BL’s VDEP, Web Archiving Project and UCL’s E-Journals service  Fits into formula for identifying whole lifecycle costs over time: L T =Aq+I T +M T +Ac T +S T +P T 

16 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Generic LIFE Preservation Model

17 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Preservation Elements – Web Archiving Case Study

18 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Suggested actual costs – Web Archiving Case Study

19 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES LIFE Phase 2  Has been funded by the JISC  Will look at  Firming up the economic modelling in partnership with an academic economist  Will work up more Case Studies to test the models  Repositories are two such Case Studies  Looking at the SHERPA-LEAP and SHERPA-DP –http://www.sherpa-leap.ac.uk/ –http://ahds.ac.uk/sherpa-dp/

20 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Conclusions  Scholarly Communication represents a revolution in the way researchers and students disseminate and use information  There are gaps in the knowledge base which hamper our ability to assess the impact and importance of new dissemination models  Overlay Journals represent an opportunity to marry Open Access Journals with Open Access Repositories  Digital Curation will ensure the long-term preservation of digital assets in Repositories, and the costs are becoming clearer  The most important asset is YOU, because YOU can effect change

21 UCL LIBRARY SERVICES And finally…  If you have been, thanks for listening  Happy to answer questions and hear comments
