3 connecting you with information, support and your community What is Open Access (OA)? providing unrestricted access to research outputs – free and permanent online Current OA policies mainly focus on journal articles and conference proceedings Publishing via Open Access means anyone can read and download the research… – As well as possibly re-use it for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

4 connecting you with information, support and your community Benefits of Open Access Increase the global visibility and impact of research and the work of the particular research community Making work available open access increases the chances of it being read and cited Helps co-authors and their visibility It means authors comply with their funder mandates WRAP provides a single, secure place of deposit that feeds other institutional systems and processes

5 connecting you with information, support and your community OPEN ACCESS PUBLISHING (There are 2 routes to OA publishing: Gold and Green) GOLD (Final print version) Author/ institution usually pay APC to publisher Free and immediate access GREEN (Accepted version) No fees paid to publisher Papers are often available after an embargo period e.g. WRAP - Warwick Research Archive Portal

6 connecting you with information, support and your community Open Access Policies Research funders now mandating open access Policies in place for: – Research Councils UK – Wellcome Trust and other charities – HEFCE in relation to the next REF process

7 connecting you with information, support and your community HEFCE Policy - Included/Excluded Outputs required to be OA for the REF – Journal articles – Conference proceedings issued with ISSNs Outputs NOT required to be OA – Books, book chapters, other long-form publications – Conference proceedings issued with ISBNs – Creative writing – Practice-based outputs – Data – Confidential items (e.g., security, commercial reasons)

8 connecting you with information, support and your community Eligibility for REF under the Open Access Policy: To be eligible an output must be: Deposited on acceptance for publication or no later than 3 months after acceptance (you can’t go back after publication!) Discoverable (must be in a repository but can be closed) This is mandatory for outputs accepted for publication after 1 April 2016 WRAP is a compliant repository Licence is not required but advised to use at least CC BY-NC- ND – Creative Commons Non-Commercial-Non-Derivative

9 connecting you with information, support and your community Embargo Periods 12 months Science/Medical subjects 24 months for Arts and Humanities/Social Sciences 24 months is acceptable for interdisciplinary research submitted to Science/Medicine Panels if it is also admissible to Arts/Social Sciences Work has to be deposited! Remember on acceptance; if it is under embargo or there are other issues we will keep it on closed access for the necessary period

10 connecting you with information, support and your community Exceptions Deposit/Technical – E.g., need for multiple author permissions delayed submission of the work; legal/ethical; short term repository failure Access – Dependence on 3 rd party content and rights not granted – Embargo period is beyond the maximum but it is the most appropriate publication – Journal prohibits OA repository deposit but it is the most appropriate publication Other – ‘Very rare’ - written explanation required If you think you need an exception please contact us when depositing!

11 connecting you with information, support and your community QA and Verification An audit and verification process are still to be established Institutions will be asked to provide assurance on processes and systems – have to be in place and used by April 2016 – WRAP is working with HEFCE to ensure we meet all the needs of researchers Intention is to list exceptions in WRAP alongside the article The Policy firmly establishes the green route HEFCE gives credit in the REF Research Environment if output takes a more open Gold route and goes OA straight away.

12 connecting you with information, support and your community HEFCE Policy Overall Key messages: HEFCE are strongly supporting repositories (green) but a publication Open Access (gold) will also comply but accepted version must still be deposited in repository use WRAP now: get into the deposit habit any issues get in touch!

13 connecting you with information, support and your community The Charities Open Access Fund (COAF) Members of the fund – set up from 1/10/14 – running for two years – other charities may join year 2

16 connecting you with information, support and your community To comply with RCUK policy : You must publish in a journal compliant with the RCUK Policy on Access to Research Outputs Your article must include : – a statement on funding source/s – a statement on how “underlying research materials – such as data, samples or models – can be accessed*” *This does not mean the data itself needs to be OA – it means you say how the reader can access it, or where there are sensitivities in the data, you note this

17 connecting you with information, support and your community Open Access Books HEFCE are exploring this area with an AHRC/ESRC project led by Geoffrey Crossick From October 2014 the Wellcome Trust require books and chapters be OA - from 1/10/14 apply direct to Trust for funding Publisher movement on Open Access books: – Routledge (£10,000), Springer (number of pages) – Knowledge Unlatched Pilot Collection (28 books openly available, funded by 300 libraries worldwide)

22 Predatory Open Access Publishers Often ‘cold-call’ by s designed to flatter the author Offer enticing benefits to authors – Royalties, quick publication, retain your copyright – And often follow through with this (!) Publishing with them can restrict your ability to further publish the work elsewhere Some Universities are excluding these publications from consideration for promotion

23 connecting you with information, support and your community Ways to protect yourself Check the list of publishers and journals: – – Look for details of the process – Peer-review? Editors? Plagiarism checking? Copyediting? Journal listed in DOAJ? - Talk to colleagues – have they heard of the journal or publisher?
