1 Open Access at the World Bank OA Policy and Open Knowledge Repository (OKR) Interoperability Jose de Buerba, Sr. Publishing Officer Paschal Ssemaganda, Publishing Officer CONFERENCE ON OPEN ACCESS, KNOWLEDGE SHARING AND SUSTAINABLE SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATION IN UGANDA BUGOLOBI, KAMPALA, 21ST MAY 2013

2 We need to do development differently Robert B. Zoellick, Former President, The World Bank Group New Direction: Democratizing Development We need to throw open the doors, recognizing that others can find and create their own solutions. We need to recognize that development knowledge is no longer the sole province of the researcher, the scholar, or the ivory tower. The aim is to open the treasure chest of the World Banks data and knowledge to every village health care worker, every researcher, everyone. Georgetown University, September 2010

3 Open About What We Know (D ata and Knowledge) Open About What We Do (Operations and Results) Open About How We Work (Partnerships for Openness) Open Government (Transparency, Accountability) THE WORLD BANK OPEN AGENDA Embracing Openness

4 Open Access Policy Creative Commons Open Knowledge Repository Strategic Review of World Bank Publishing or

5 Why an Open Access Policy? To provide greater access to Bank research and knowledge outputs To encourage innovation allowing use and re-use (i.e., derivative works, translations, text-mining,etc.) To join a growing Open Access community (e.g., governments, universities, and other institutions) To align Banks Publishing with Banks Open Development Agenda

6 Policy Scope WB OA Policy applies to manuscripts and accompanying data sets that: (a)that result from research, analysis, and economic and sector work; (b)that have undergone peer review or have been otherwise vetted and approved for release to the public; and (c)for which approval for release is given on or after July 1, 2012.

7 1.For works published by the Bank Available immediately in OKR Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) 2.For works by Bank staff published externally (mostly journal articles) Working paper version available immediately in OKR under CC BY Final, peer-reviewed Accepted Author Manuscript (AAM), available in OKR after Publisher's embargo under CC BY NC ND (unless more liberal license is accepted) Policy Requirements

8 Policy Compliance 1. Bank Published Works Content type: 1.Books 2.Working Papers 3.Economic and Sector Work 4.Micro-datasets

9 Policy Compliance 2. Works Published Externally 1.New publishing agreements with academic publishers (publishing and posting agreements) 2.New manuscript submission workflows (from author to external publishers) 3.Ingestion of AAM into Bank repository (OKR) 4.Creation and curation of metadata for each AAM 5.Communication strategy

13 Four Comparative Advantages 1.Optimal Discoverability: Interoperable with other repositories Adherence to Open Access standards (Dublin Core metadata and OAI-PMH) Systematic metadata curation process 2.Intuitive Interface: Several browse options, advanced search, most viewed content, citation information, permanent links, etc. Built on DSpace - OA platform 3.Allows Use, Reuse and Building-on Banks Work: CC BY copyright license 4.New Content: Content published by external Publishers

14 1 million downloads in 1 year (44% from developing countries) Total Downloads

15 Advanced Metrics

16 Improving interoperability The problem: All or nothing DSpace is limited in flexibility for metadata harvesters. The solution: A bit of this and that Allow filtering via facets like country and topic to create virtual sets. The resultant XML output is OAI- PMH compliant and exportable The benefit: More exchange of metadata

17 Conclusions 1.We are at very early stages in Open Access publishing. 2.Academic publishers are rebuilding their business models: some embrace, some resist and some hide. 3.Different government approaches to OA in the UK (Gold OA) and US (Green OA) has created some confusion. 4.Institutional mandated embargo periods are not as strong as government mandates (E.g., WB Vs. NIH). 5.Open Repositories built on open software (DSpace, ePrints) increase dissemination significantly… but marketing and outreach is very important. 6.WB focused on technical innovations and building new partnerships to drive usage and discovery
