2 Road Map Scholarly communication alternatives e-Print Archives e-Prints Soton How to make your research more accessible / visible now

3 PUBPUB SUBSUB LIBLIB A R Primary channel - Scholarly Communication – present model Bibliometrics – citation analysis, impact factors Evaluation – SMA /RAE, Tenure, Promotion Research funding proposals

4 1774 % Even wealthy Libraries cannot subscribe – less access to your research

5 Crisis in Scholarly Communication alternate models Open Access Journals Open Archives Initiatives Open = freely accessible - open access journals Open = interoperable - Open Archives Initiative BioMed Central - JISC funding payment of $500 per article 7/03- Author pays Publication charge = free online access to all Publication charge not paid = subscription only access

6 Changing Publishing Paradigm A uthors R eaders OAI data providersOAI service providers PUBPUB SUBSUB LIBLIB A uthors R eaders Deposit – post refereed, pre published Archive/ access Hybrid Interoperability Protocols roles +++ Information flow through Open Archives model Citation analysis

8 Aims To set up a sustainable Southampton e- Print archive e-Prints Soton Activity: –Targeting Academic Resources for Deposit and Disclosure –To gain content – full text documents

9 What are e-Prints? e-Prints are: electronic copies of any research output –journal articles, book chapters, conference papers etc even multimedia –they may include unpublished manuscripts and papers prepared for publication (as copyright allows) Also broader and narrower definitions: Academic output - MIT Peer-reviewed – Prof. Stevan Harnad (open access advocate) An e-Print archive is an internet based repository of such digital scholarly publications which can provide immediate and free worldwide access benefiting both author and reader

10 e-Print archives (misnomer!) Subject based e-Print archives (centred on author deposit) –Pioneering example is ArXiv set up by Paul Ginsparg at Los Alamos in 1991ArXiv –Successful in limited subject areas –Free EPrints Software developed at Southampton to encourage more self archiving (JISC funding) Open Archives Initiative software standards developed to enable cross searching (OAI-PMH) Alternate models proposed based on institutional research output

11 arXiv usage daily ArXiv is an e-print service in the fields of physics, mathematics, non-linear science, computer science, and quantitative biology

12 arXiv now over 250,000 Quantitative Biology added Sept 2003

13 A national vision: e-Prints + e-Learning + data Diagram from eBank UK project

14 A national vision: ePrints UK

16 Why contribute your work? To make your research more visible and accessible in electronic form To promote your work and that of other academics within your community To use it as a secure store for your research publications - which can help you to respond to the many requests for full text and publication data To contribute to national and global initiatives which will ensure an international audience for your latest research (other universities are developing their own archives which, together, will be searchable by global search tools)

17 Raising the profile…. Articles freely available online are more highly cited. For greater impact and faster scientific progress, authors and publishers should aim to make research easy to access Nature, Volume 411, Number 6837, p. 521, 2001 Steve Lawrence Online or Invisible? ne-nature01/ ne-nature01/
