2 Problems with the current system Limited access to research Limited impact of research Rising journal prices Competition issues Big Deal Threat to Learned Society publishers Disengagement of academics

3 Context In 2002, Reed Elsevier made adjusted profit before taxation of £927 million (1,474 million) on turnover of £5,020 million (7,982 million). Journal costs soar by up to 94% (THES, 15 October, 2004, p. 2) Quoting Loughborough study of –price increases range from 27% (CUP) to 94% (Sage) –median journal prices range from £124 (CUP) to £781 (Elsevier) –Elsevier highest median price in every subject –price per page ranged from 31p (OUP) to 98p (Taylor and Francis) –little relationship between impact factor and price

4 Overall... Universities generate research output Give it free of charge to publishers Give services to publishers as referees Give services to publishers as editors Have to buy back the results

5 Open Access The internet allows world-wide dissemination of information to anyone with a connection, with no restrictions Academics do not make money from journal articles, but want the widest dissemination and recognition - so why not put them on the web and just give them away for free?

6 OAI, OAIS, BOAI OAI - Open Archives Initiative –Open - interoperable archives with an open architecture OAIS - Open Archival Information System reference model –Open - open for comments and contributions; the reference model for archives is developed in an open forum BOAI - Budapest Open Access Initiative –Open - freely accessible, open access

7 Open Access solutions Open Access Journals Open Access Repositories

8 Open Access Journals Publication charges Not author-pays Same pot of money as before DOAJ - now over 1400 journals BioMEd Central, PLoS

9 Open Access Repositories Document service –storage, search, access, preservation Duplicates of journal articles – eprints Post-prints, pre-prints, working papers Supplementary to current publishing practice No access barriers Institutionally based Cross-searchable - OAI-PMH

10 Benefits for the researcher wide dissemination –papers more visible –cited more rapid dissemination ease of access cross-searchable value added services –hit counts on papers –personalised publications lists –citation analyses

28 SHERPA - Securing a Hybrid Environment for Research Preservation and Access Partner institutions –Birkbeck College, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Imperial College, Kings College, Leeds, LSE, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Royal Holloway, School of Oriental and African Studies, Sheffield, University College London,York; the British Library and AHDS

29 Practical issues establishing an archive populating an archive copyright advocacy & changing working habits mounting material maintenance preservation concerns

30 Concerns subject base more natural ? –institutional infrastructure, view by subject quality control ? –peer-review clearly labelled I already have my papers on my website... –unstructured for search, RAE, preservation plagiarism –old problem - and easier to detect threat to journals? –evidence shows co-existence possible - but in the future... ?

31 Futures repositories can work in tandem with –traditional journals –OA journals –overlay journals –peer-review boards possibilities to enhance research outputs –multimedia outputs –data sets –developing papers

32 A selection of recent progress Scottish Declaration of Open Access 32 Italian Rectors and the Messina Declaration Austrian Rectors sign the Berlin Declaration Russian Libraries launch the St Petersburg Declaration Wellcome Trusts repository National Institutes for Health proposal Widespread publicity and support...and India, Africa, Australia...

33 National progress 19 of 20 repositories in SHERPA are now live: –Birkbeck, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Kings, Leeds, LSE, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Royal Holloway, SOAS, Sheffield, UCL,York and the British Library Other institutions are also live: –Bath, Cranfield, Open University, Southampton, St Andrews Other institutions are planning and installing IBERs approx. 93% (of Nottinghams) journals allow their authors to archive

46 SELECT COMMITTEE INQUIRY

47 Select Committee Inquiry House of Commons Science and Technology Committee: –to examine expenditure, administration, and policy of OST –to examine science and technology policy across government Inquiry into scientific publications - 10 December 2003 Written evidence: 127 submissions (February 2004) Oral evidence (March – May 2004) –Commercial publishers, Society publishers, Open access publishers, Librarians, Authors, Government officials Report published, 20 July 2004 Government response November 2004

49 Solutions 82 recommendations in three main areas: Improving the existing system Institutional repositories Author pays economic model

50 Improving the existing system JISC to develop independent price monitoring JISC to press for transparency on publishers costs Office of Fair Trading to monitor market trends Funding bodies to review library budgets VAT problem to be addressed JISC, NHS and HE purchasing consortia JISC to improve licences negotiated with publishers BL to be supported to provide digital preservation

51 Changing the system Principle: Publicly-funded research should be publicly available

52 IBERs - Recommendations UK HEIs to set up IBERs Research Councils mandate self archiving Central body to oversee IBERs IBER implementation government funded –identified as good value for money Definite timetable to be agreed IBERs should clearly label peer-reviewed content RCs mandate author-retention of copyright

53 Further issues Joined-up Government strategy required International action required
