Repositories are one of the main open access routes in the dissemination of scholarly communication. Their role had to be redefined after the RCUK Open Access Policy and the Finch Report, which supported gold open access and mentioned that repositories are suitable only for dissertations and grey literature. On the other hand, in the "Consultation on open access in the post-2014 Research Excellence Framework" the outputs that will count for the next REF must be included in an institutional repository. In this talk we will discuss the main updates regarding repositories and the library's role in this constantly changing environment. This talk will be of particular value to anyone registered for CILIP Chartership and can contribute towards CPD requirements. We encourage you to blog or tweet about this event - do let us know if you blog it and tweet with #ciliplndn CILIP in London evening meetings are open to all with a professional interest in the topic. - See more at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/london/events/value-and-importance-repositories#sthash.f3IjZGX2.dpuf

  • 2. Library Budgets 21-27 October 2013 For 2013 in Europe budgets have slightly decreased. In the USA the numbers stayed the same. (Source: Library Budget Predictions for 2013)
  • 3. Open Access 21-27 October 2013 “Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. What makes it possible is the internet and the consent of the author or copyright-holder”. (Suber, 2007)
  • 4. How to deliver open access content 21-27 October 2013 Open Access Journals/ Gold route Open Access Journals offer peer-reviewed research. Sometimes they charge an Article Processing Charge (APC), sometimes they do not. Subscription based journals that offer an open route- hybrid journalsalways charge Article Processing Charges (APCs) Repositories - Do NOT perform peer-review - Pre-prints, post-prints, final version - Standardized: OAI-PMH compatible

In effect April 1 st, 2013 • Journal articles and conference proceedings • There are publication costs associated with gold oa – Article Processing Charges (APCs) • RCUK gold compliant journals: – Open Access or hybrid journals with a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC-BY) RCUK will provide funding • RCUK green compliant journals: to enable: – Allow self-archiving in repositories •45% compliance the first – 12 months embargo period for STEM year – 24 months embargo period for HSS •50% compliance the second year [http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/media/news/2012news/P ages/121108.aspx]

  • 8. House of Commons Business, Innovation and Skills Committee 21-27 October 2013 §24. The major mechanism through which the UK has achieved its world leading status (Green open access) has been given inadequate consideration… §41. We recommend that RCUK also requires data on subscription expenditure from UK HEIs to establish the impact of its policy on subscription purchasing and pricing. §49. We note the absence of evidence that short embargo periods harm subscription publishers. We have seen evidence that current UK open access policy risks incentivising publishers to introduce or increase embargo periods. §57. We conclude that the Finch Report, the Government and RCUK have failed to assess adequately the existing levels of APCs that are charged by a range of open access journals
