  • Topics to cover
  • Open Access

    What it is

    What it is not

    OA has been made possible with the introduction and advancement of Internet.

    Journals started being available online via various databases.

    This provided opportunities to overcome limitations of print distribution and enabled a lot wider access to resources.

    The Open Access movement is the worldwide effort to provide free online access to scientific and scholarly research literature.

    The Open Access movement started out with a series of statements or declarations.

    Historically the movement has progressed and gained momentum since 2002 through three major statements made in Budapest, Bethesda and Berlin.

    Budapest Open Access Initiative (February 2002)
    Bethesda Statement on Open Access Publishing (June 2003)
    Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities (October 2003)




  • DEFINITION - Open Access publications are freely and permanently available online to anyone with an internet connection. Unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium is permitted, provided the author/editor is properly attributed. Mainly require one of the CC licenses.

    PLoS - Example of Open Access Publisher would be Public Library of Science and a journal PLoS ONE …..

    WHO PAYS? - Some Open Access journals charge Article Processing Charges. Average APC in 2010 was USD$906. Just over 26% of all DOAJ journals charged article processing charges. Approximately 73% of open access journals do not.

    Researchers wanting to publish in an open access journal which does charge APCs may wish to consider including these fees in any grant proposals.

    Note that the 2012 ARC Discovery Grant funding rules allow 2% of the grant to be used for this purpose and the NHMRC allow researchers to request some of their grant be used for publication costs.

    A 2012 study (in press) on institutional support for open access publishing found that only two universities in Australia have specific funds for article processing fees.


    DOAJ - A comprehensive list of OA journals can be found at Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). There are currently 9088 journals listed in DOAJ, with over 1.085.390 articles. Over 120 Australian journals are listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

    Open access journals are often published through universities. Over 100 OA journals is published by Australian universities. Generally these journals are supported by the institution and do not charge article processing fees.
  • Traditional Journals

    Started as print journals.
    Game changed with beginning of Internet


    To access content in these journals subscription must be paid.

    Some journals charge 20-30.000 $ for subscription.

    Libraries paying subscriptions so that content can be accessed by University staff and students.

    Login or IP authentication needed for access.







  • Publishing Conditions – Each Publisher has conditions for access to material they publish. Usually stated on Publisher’s web site.

    Contract that authors sign with Publisher determine what the author can do with the publication. Important to read what conditions are set in the contract.

    Most contracts will allow author the right to place a copy of the publication in the institutional repository.

    Immediate Open Access – Some publishers would allow author to archive the publication in the institutional repository immediately upon publication.

    ‘Hybrid’ Open Access – Some articles within a journal would be made available as OA while other would not. Author (or institution, funder, etc.) needs to pay APC which varies but can be as much as $3000+ per article.

    Examples:

    American Institute of Physics: Author Select.
    Cambridge University Press: Cambridge Open Option.
    Oxford University Press: Oxford Open..
    Royal Society of Chemistry (UK): RSC Open Science.
    SAGE Publications: SAGE Open.
    Springer: Open Choice.
    Taylor & Francis: iOpen Access.
    Wiley-Blackwell: OnlineOpen.

    Open Access after an Embargo: Some publishers/Journals have embargo periods where articles cannot be made OA until certain period of time has lapsed.
    Embargos can vary from 6 months to 48 months depending on the discipline.
  • Pre-Print version – Author version submitted to the journal in its original form. This version has not gone through any form of peer-review’. Not archived in Institutional Repositories. Some disciplinary repositories accept this version (arXiv.org by Cornell University - Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Quantitative Biology, Quantitative Finance and Statistics)

    Post-Print version – Author version that has been peer reviewed and content is the same as the content that is being published as the final publication. Usually does not contain publisher formatting, branding and pagination.

    Publisher Version – Same version as published in the journal. Contains all publisher branding, formatting, pagination.
  • Open access benefits almost everyone. The pursuit of research is to increase global knowledge. Disseminating work through open access channels means that researchers in less resourced institutions, practitioners in the field and the general public can share findings.

    Increases collaboration and sharing of research findings internationally.

    The taxpayer supports the research, the writing up of results, and the peer review and editing process. Open access allows these taxpayers to see these findings without having to pay to view.

    There is also considerable evidence that reaching more readers by making work open access results in citable articles being cited more.

    Open access also allows institutions a wider audience for their outputs.
