Take Advantage of Open Access Increased Impact, Control and Convenience HSLS Lunch with a Librarian February 9, 2012 Andrea Ketchum MLIS AHIP Health Sciences Library System University of Pittsburgh
1.Open Access Overview 1.Definition 2.Evolution of Open Access 2.Advantages 3.Tools for selecting a journal and managing your work 4.Convenience
Open access is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Definition: Open Access 1.Publish in Open Access Journals Free full text to all readers immediately Popular business model: “Author-pays” (usually paid by funder) Sometimes FREE!! Check each journal. 2.Deposit a copy in a Repository Free full text to all readers immediately, but might not be.pdfs Examples PubMed Central – required under NIH Public Access Policy Institutional, such as Pitt’s own Searchable globally via Google, other search engines 2 Main Ways to Accomplish:
Evolution of Open Access 400 years later… 1665: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London Now available in print! Printing Press and Paper WWW, Internet Access and Electronic Publishing Old Books 2 by D’Arcy Norman 2007.Creative Commons Attribution license: Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society A By dullhunk Creative Commons Attribution license: Delivery of Medical Journals 2012: Philosophical Transactions Now available online! The same volume can be shared by all Limited access, limited time
Scholars research and write articles with no payment from publisher. Publishers manage manuscript publication process and disseminate the research. The understanding 1665 – now? Other scholars peer-review those articles with no payment from publisher. Readers pay to read via subscriptions.

The understanding ?? Publishers promote authors and their research Scholars provide original, well-written research articles In exchange, publishers receive money. In exchange, scholar-authors receive good reputation, tenured positions. Print journals were purchased by individuals or libraries, where patrons could read and make copies of articles if needed. Print issues were owned by the library & available to library patrons. Equilibrium
“Crisis in Scholarly Communication” Skyrocketing journal prices Cancelled subscriptions Book budgets decimated Reduced access to all *Remember –Libraries may not always include back issues in their subscriptions, and may not keep what they have already paid for once a subscription [license] ends. Journals
Examples of annual library subscriptions (2012 prices) $30,860 Journal of Comparative Neurology (Wiley) $24,047 Brain Research (Elsevier) $20,269 Tetrahedron (Elsevier) $11,444 Gene (Elsevier) $10,840 International Journal of Pharmaceutics (Elsevier)
Publishers promote authors and their research, profits up 29-38%* Scholars provide original, well-written research. FREE *Dorsey ER, George BP, Dayoub EJ, Ravina BM.

The New Reality: Disequilibrium Note: Universities and institutions use established publisher metrics (impact factors) for tenure and promotion decisions.
From The Right to Research Coalition Note: Publishers pay book authors for content --> Stephen King, JK Rowling… Publishers do NOT pay acad jrnl authors for content
We need a new model Electronic delivery has changed information delivery & use This is not about ideology anymore. It’s about creating the best, most efficient mechanisms for getting research to those who need it.” Cameron Neylon, Science and Technology Facilities Council UK November 11, 2011 Berlin 9 Open Access Conference Washington, D.C.

Goal: overturn the NIH Public Access Policy December 2011
Research Works Act (RWA) aka H.R “To ensure the continued publication and integrity of peer-reviewed research works by the private sector.” No Federal agency may adopt, implement, maintain, continue, or otherwise engage in any policy, program, or other activity that-- (1) causes, permits, or authorizes network dissemination of any private-sector research work without the prior consent of the publisher of such work; or (2) requires that any actual or prospective author, or the employer of such an actual or prospective author, assent to network dissemination of a private-sector research work.

An Academic rebels 1.It charges very high prices — so far above the average that it seems quite extraordinary that they can get away with it. 2.One method that they have for getting away with it is a practice known as “bundling.” 3.If libraries attempt to negotiate better deals, Elsevier is ruthless about cutting off access to all their journals. 4.Elsevier supports many of the measures, such as the Research Works Act, that attempts to roll back the NIH Public Access Policy and Open Access in general. Elsevier — my part in its downfall Tim Gowers, Gowers’s Weblog, January 21, 2012 “It might seem inexplicable that this situation has been allowed to continue.”
Scholars withholding content from Tim Gowers and Tyler Neylon Updates: 1/30/2012: 1,603 2/1/2012: 2,782 2/2/2012: 3,193 2/3/2012: 3,461 2/7/2012: 4,434 2/9/2012: 4,913
Open access is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. AND Open access is about creating a more efficient way to get medical research to those who need it. Update Definition of Open Access
How can Open Access help you? Impact – Increased readership and citation Control – Use your articles in class – Share freely with colleagues – Post on your Web site – Reuse in subsequent work Convenience – No more ordering and waiting for articles from Document Delivery – No more doing without! – Share your articles via permanent links from Repositories
Citation and Impact Does Open Access have a citation advantage? YES Medicine: % increase in citations when published in Open Access journals
Citation and Impact: consensus KEY REFERENCES - See also the Open Citation Project Swan Alma.

Getting cited: Does open access help? Research Policy 2011;40(10): Gargouri Y, Hajjem C, Larivière V, Gingras Y, Carr L, Brody T, et al.

Epub 2006 May 16. PubMed PMID: ; PubMed Central PMCID: PMC ; 1.Open Access(OA) increases visibility, thereby increasing citation. 2.OA advantage is statistically significant. 3.Authors tend to publish their best papers in OA journals. 4.OA especially enhances the impact of highly citable articles. 5.OA probably accelerates dissemination of research findings.

Retain control of your work Traditionally, many authors automatically give their entire copyrights to the publisher, making the above impossible. RETAIN rights to your own work by Publishing in an Open Access journal Using an Author Addendum to retain the right to deposit a copy of your paper in your institutions’ repository and/or other activities. The NIH Public Access Policy requires that you retain the right to deposit a copy of your NIH-funded work in PubMed Central within 12 months. Your publisher must agree to this. Check your publisher agreement or insert the proper language. (See the HSLS NIH Public Access Policy page.) Would you like to Post your paper on your Web site? Use your paper in your classes? Send copies of your paper to colleagues? Reuse parts of your published research?
SPARC Author Addendum – Scholar’s Copyright Addendum Engine – Use to request permission to retain rights to your own work: just download, fill in, and attach to your publisher agreement. Author Addendum The publisher may agree or not, but you’ll never get an answer if you do not ask! A contract is an opportunity to negotiate.
How can you take full advantage of Open Access? Publish as “Open” as possible– shop around! – Use online tools to find an Open Access journal that meets your needs – Author fees vary, but many do not charge at all. – Remember: Author fees often paid by research funder Retain the right to deposit a copy in a Repository – Check publisher/journal copyright policy first! – (Pitt’s own!) or other – Some publishers permit this, but conditions apply versions, embargoes etc. – Publish in any journal, but attach an Author Addendum No charge! Just attach a copy of Addendum Read your publisher’s agreement first! Some journals already permit this without extra paperwork – see previous point
Selecting a Journal AUTHOR RIGHTS = AUTHOR RESPONSIBLITIES Take charge of your publishing decisions! Consider (Cost + Impact + Access)

Repositories – a few words… Institutional – University of Pittsburgh: – MIT: – Harvard: DASHDASH Subject – PubMed Central Repositories are critical to Open Access. They are the online storage facilities for the free versions of research articles and other scholarly research materials. Repositories have standardized and interoperable search engines, making them easily searchable.
