Open Access Institutional Repositories – 26 January ISSUES FOR SOCIETIES Members join for conference and journal How many members will be lost with Open Access? Will self-archiving undermine subscriptions? Many societies dependent on publishing income Authors like having a PDF but how should their use of this be controlled? Switch from CAF (Copyright Assignment Form) to ELF (Exclusive Licence Form) has some appeal
Open Access Institutional Repositories – 26 January ISSUES FOR SOCIETIES (continued) Dont seem too concerned about Green status Fairly aware of NIH story Most see need for embargo to protect journal Impact Factor is very important Not interested in being associated with pre- print servers Capable of changing their minds very quickly

Open Access Institutional Repositories – 26 January ISSUES FOR CROSSREF IN ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH IRs Mission To provide services that bring the scholar to authoritative primary content, focusing on services that are best achieved through collective agreement by publishers. Status 350 members (2/3 not-for-profit), 1400 publishers 10,833 journals 4,640 books 11,000 conference proceedings $3M annual turnover 326 depositors: 285 linkers Issues Match rate (successful linking up from 18% in 2003 to 27% in 2004) Multiple Resolution Relationship between Google and CrossRef Search New content (spreading out from STM) Relationship with Institutional Repositories but lack of clarity on their role
Open Access Institutional Repositories – 26 January HOW DO WE GO FORWARD? As the IR system becomes more comprehensive and efficient so we could see more protection of the subscription base What might the balance be? If a journal offers free access after 12 months and insists on a self-archiving embargo of 12 months what need of self- archiving? Why not simply link to publisher?
Open Access Institutional Repositories – 26 January LONG-TERM ISSUES FOR JOURNAL PUBLISHING Widespread increase in R&D funding – UK: science budget £2.4 Bn 03/04, £5 Bn 13/14 – Europe: goal for R&D 3% of GDP, UK currently 1.9% GDP, aiming for 2.5% – Developing countries: DFID policy, eg Pakistan More funding means more papers (1.5M papers going up to 3M papers per annum over 10 years) Geography of authorship (RoW: 25% in 1983, nearly 50% in 2003) Will the Impact Factor pattern change with greater volume? Technology in place for production and in development for discovery What models will partner this technology?
