4th OpenAIRE Workshop, Lars Bjornshauge Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Sustainability – the funding model of DOAJ OpenAIRE workshop: Legal and Sustainability issues, November 5th 2013, Vilnius Lars Bjørnshauge lars@doaj.org
  • 2. Brief Background • Founded 2003 at Lund University – launched May 2003 with 300 journals • Initially funded by minor project grants from SPARC and Open Society Institute. • Additional grants from among others SPARC Europe, INASP and OpenAccess.se. • Membership and Sponsor funding model introduced 2006.
  • 3. Higher expectations • • • • Situation 2010/2011: Increasing expectations as OA gets momentum. Difficulties in getting resources as expectations grow. As OA matures demands from funders and libraries increase and become more differentiated and advanced. • Increasing backlog and lack of curation of the collection.
  • 4. www.is4oa.org Founded by Caroline Sutton, Alma Swan & Lars Bjørnshauge
  • 5. Improvements • New platform launched • Facets search: – language – publication year – license – business model (APCs or not) • Very good feedback!
  • 6. Streamlining back office • Journals added Jan-Oct 2013: • (Journals added 2012): 2007 1248 • We are removing journals as well: • August 1st – October 31st 2013: • Journals added: • Journals removed: 485 481
  • 7. Staffing • Staff: • 5 part time – 3 FTE • Maintenance & development outsourced to Sempertool (www.sempertool.dk) • Working from Copenhagen, Malmö & Stockholm
  • 8. Current funding model • Memberships – Academic Libraries – Library Consortia – Aggregators £ 400/year £ 4000/year £ 5000/year • Sponsors £ 1500-10000/year • Donations (anything)
  • 9. • • • • • • Expected turnover 2013: Income: Libraries & Library Consortia: Commercial aggregators: Sponsors: Various £ 200.000 63% 10% 25% 2%
  • 10. The funding model, works – more or less - so far, but….
  • 11. There is much more work to be done! • • • • Implementation of new tighter criteria Facilitating uptake of persistent identifiers Facilitating archiving solutions Facilitating contributions from the community – ”associate editors”
  • 12. Why thighter criteria? • Better opportunities for funders, universities, libraries and authors to determine whether a journal lives up to standards – transparency! • Enable the community to monitor compliance • Addressing the issue of fake publishers or publishers not living up to reasonable standards both in terms of content and of business behavior. • DOAJ SEAL – promote best practice
  • 13. New criteria • • • • • • New tighter criteria will address: “Quality” “Openness” “the delivery” They will be more detailed Publishers will have to do more to be included
  • 14. The long tail 800 700 600 500 Number of journals 400 Responses 300 200 100 0 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 27 29 31 33 35 37 39 41 43
  • 15. Promoting DOIs • Discussions with – OASPA – INASP – PKP – Redalyc • as to how to work together on this and with CrossRef for efficient and affordable arrangements
  • 16. The challenge related to archiving • Many, many journals – lack the financial & technical resources to go beyond just publishing the content. – haven´t adressed the archiving issue yet, but would like to do so, provided smart and cheap solutions are available. • Discussions with OASPA, INASP, PKP, Redalyc, CLOCKSS, Keepers Registry and approached by Portico
  • 17. - more than a list! • Going beyond being a list of OA-journals and a hub for article level metadata • Engaging with the community to assist OAjournals to enter the mainstream – Archiving, persistent identifiers etc • Opening up for crowd sourcing of the editorial work
  • 18. Requires probably 50% increase in funding – this should be possible during 2014
  • 19. • Would like to become part of a OAinfrastructure package • But have to continue and develop the current funding while waiting for the global OAinfrastructure committee to emerge and generate results – we will contribute to this process
  • 20. Thank you for your attention! lars@doaj.org
