Bill Hubbard SHERPA Manager University of Nottingham Supporting a network of repositories - - experience from SHERPA in the UK
Routes to Open Access Δ Open Access Journals Δ Open Access Repositories Δ Two routes to Open Access - but not equivalent!
Publication and deposition Author writes paper Submits to journal Paper refereed Revised by author Author submits final version Published in journal Deposit in e-print repository pre-print post-print published version
Repositories Δ Repositories work alongside traditional and OA publication models Δ Offer Open Access benefits plus more... Δ Offer additional benefits for –authors –researchers –institutions –research funders –and research process
Repositories Δ Institutions have repositories –open to institutions academics Δ Networks of repositories –SHERPA, DARENet, ARROW - country networks –DRIVER - European network Δ Some subjects have specific repositories –arXiv - 482,478 items –UKPMC - 948,500 full-text articles –AgentLink Publications Clearinghouse - 1403 items
Why institutional repositories? Δ Practical reasons –use institutional infrastructure –integration into work-flows and systems –support is close to academic users and contributors –repository managers can oversee processes, check compliance with funders and with best-practice standards, etc Δ The OAI-PMH allows a single gateway to search and access many repositories –subject-based portals or views –institutional storage and support
Rise of Repositories Δ Directory of Open Access Repositories - OpenDOAR –www.opendoar.org –over 1300 open access repositories –started registration in 2006... Δ 200 added in 2007 Δ... and over 300 added in 2008 Δ 80% are institutional
Repositories by Continent Δ Figures from OpenDOAR www.opendoar.org
Repositories in Russell &1994 Groups (UK) Δ University of Bath Δ Birkbeck Δ University of Birmingham Δ University of Bristol Δ University of Cambridge Δ Cardiff University Δ University of Durham Δ University of East Anglia Δ University of Edinburgh Δ University of Essex Δ University of Exeter Δ University of Glasgow Δ Goldsmiths Δ Queens University Δ University of Reading Δ Royal Holloway Δ University of St Andrews Δ University of Sheffield Δ SOAS Δ University of Southampton Δ University of Surrey Δ University of Sussex Δ University of Warwick Δ UCL Δ University of York Δ Imperial College Δ King's College London Δ Lancaster University Δ University of Leeds Δ University of Leicester Δ University of Liverpool Δ Loughborough University Δ LSE Δ University of Manchester Δ University of Newcastle Δ University of Nottingham Δ University of Oxford Δ Queen Mary Δ Effectively, the UK HE research base...
How to create a network Δ Example from the UK... Δ Initial experiments Δ JISC Programmes and strategic vision Δ One example - SHERPA –Self-help group –Collaborative partnership –Peer network –Advocacy activities –Policy development and lobbying
Other examples Δ IRIScotland Δ DARE-NET Δ ARROWs project Δ DRIVER Δ DART-Europe Δ Ireland Δ Repositories in the USA Δ What successful lessons can be drawn?
Building repository networks Δ Not primarily a technical challenge –free software or commercial hosting –(relatively) simple set-up Δ Not primarily a copyright problem Δ Not primarily author-persuasion about Open Access Δ Challenges are in effective support for cultural, policy and procedural change management within institutions and research communities
For a repository network... Δ Practical –Repositories –Content –Repository Managers Δ Buy-in from three key stakeholders: –Academics –Funders –Institutions Δ Support...
Top-down support - Institutional Δ Shared vision with stakeholders Δ Encouragement –Statements, policies, funding Δ Embedding in research process and work-flows –Prestige measures to match Δ Representation to powerful lobbies Δ Ensure legal framework is supportive Δ Support for centralised support services Δ Recognition of value of bottom-up work
Top-down support - Funding Bodies Δ Recognition of value of Open Access to mission of funders Δ Policies/ mandates to ensure Open Access and/or deposition Δ Recognition/reward of compliance from authors –and sanctions for non-compliance from authors –work with repository managers Δ Promotion of open access work to their stakeholders (government, general public, researchers, institutions, learned societies)
Side-to-side support Δ Networking amongst peers –email, events, wikis, blogs Δ Professional training –advocacy, technical issues, legal issues Δ Share best practice, standards Δ Self-help - create: –mentoring arrangements –peer-networks –professional support groups - eg, UKCoRR
Bottom-up support - Repository Managers Δ Establish repositories Δ Create effective policies for/about repository use Δ Advocacy to researchers and authors - and library staff Δ Tackle practical problems Δ Identifying work-flows and structures within institutions to support Open Access deposit Δ Act as institutional focus to drive repository agenda
Comparison of investment Blue box - Public investment e.g. 2 year project, £300,000 £12,500 per month £300,000 over 24 months (and public access to results may be unavailable) 12 Red box - Publishers investment e.g. charge of £1,800 £600 per month £1,800 over about 3 months (and expenses recouped through advance payment of subscriptions) Investment comparison - public investment compared to publishers service 2 4 6 10 time - months 8 money - £ thousands
