OpenAIRE at Open Knowledge Governance for Innovation, Internet Governance Forum 2010, September 17, 2010, Vilnius, Lithuania

  1. 1. Open access and the evolving scholarly communication environment Iryna Kuchma EIFL Open Access programme manager Presented at the workshop “Why We Need an Open Web: Open Knowledge Governance for Innovation”, Internet Governance Forum 2010, September 17, 2010, Vilnius, Lithuania Attribution 3.0 Unported
  2. 2. Who we are EIFL is an international not-for-profit organisation with a base in Europe and a global network of partners
  3. 3. EILF works in 47 countries in partnership with library consortia
  4. 4. Our mission Enabling access to knowledge through libraries in developing and transition countries to contribute to sustainable economic and social development
  5. 5. Core initiatives Access to Knowledge for Education, Learning and Research EIFL Open access, EIFL-IP, EIFL-FOSS, EIFL Consortium management, EIFL-Licensing Access to Knowledge for Sustainable Livelihoods EIFL-PLIP: Public Library Innovation Program
  6. 6. EIFL OA We advocate for the adoption of open access policies and mandates by research funding agencies, universities and research organizations nationally and internationally We build capacities to launch open access repositories, and to ensure their long-term sustainability
  7. 7. EIFL OA (2) We empower library professionals, scholars, educators and students to become open access advocates Training & knowledge sharing (open access journals and open repositories)
  8. 8. EIFL OA (3) 38 workshops in 27 countries with participants from over 50 countries (awareness raising, advocacy and capacity building, 2008-2010) 17 open access mandates (China, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, South Africa & Ukraine) 265 open repositories in 38 countries 2,455 open access journals in 34 countries
  9. 9. EIFL OA (4) Report on Open Repository Development in Developing and Transition countries (EIFL, the University of Kansas Libraries, the DRIVER project and Key Perspectives Ltd) http://www.eifl.net/cps/sections/services/eifl-oa/oa-news/2010_07_05_report-on-open Report on the implementation of open content licenses in developing and transition countries http://www.eifl.net/cps/sections/services/eifl-oa/oa-news/2010_07_09_report-on-implementation
  10. 10. Context Current research dissemination practices do not adequately meet the needs of all stakeholders. Millions of educators and researchers, small businesses, students, physicians and clinicians, patients and their families, and others are without affordable access to the quality research information.
  11. 11. Context (2) How existing scientific research into malnutrition, hunger, agriculture, tropical and neglected diseases can be used to shape more effective government policies achieving the health and other outcomes stipulated by the UN MDGs? Research outputs needs to be more accessible and more visible locally and globally to contribute to solving local and global problems. Indigenous content and knowledge needs to be preserved to enrich the new generations.
  12. 12. Open access Open access for researchers: increased visibility, usage and impact for their work Open access for research institutions: increased visibility and impact, complete record of the research output in easily accessible form, the means to manage and assess research programmes Open access for publishers: increased readership and citations, visibility and impact, the best possible dissemination service for research
  13. 13. Open access Open access literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Open access is compatible with copyright, peer review, revenue (even profit), print, preservation, prestige, career-advancement, indexing, and other features and supportive services associated with conventional scholarly literature. http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/overview.htm
  14. 14. Open access journals Journals that use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access. Users can read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the journal articles.
  15. 15. Open access publishing “I publish a lot of my work in OA journals... My work becomes internationally recognised and I get a lot of feedback from my colleagues all over the world...” OA journals are inevitable, they are very very important in this point in time. Because everybody is to benefit. When you are doing research, it doesn't make sense if you keep it under the table or in the closet. We need to share the information, research we do, however little it is, so as long as it can have impact on the development, on people's livelihoods, on people's way of thinking. OA journals help us to reach all the stakeholders: researchers, policy makers, consumers, students, farmers.”
  16. 16. Open repository contains research output, institutional or thematic, and OAI compliant http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/openarchivesprotocol.html interoperable, forming a global research facility, common metadata protocol allows other web applications, such as data mining scholars deposit their refereed journal articles in open archives/repositories, a practice commonly called, self-archiving
  17. 17. Open Access in numbers About 1 in 5 articles published in 2009 are now available in open access Björk B-C, Welling P, Laakso M, Majlender P, Hedlund T, et al. (2010) Open Access to the Scientific Journal Literature: Situation 2009. PLoS ONE 5(6): e11273. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0011273 http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0011273 5374 open access journals in the Directory of Open Access Journals http://www.doaj.org/ 1725 open access repositories in the Directory of Open Access Repositories http://www.opendoar.org/ 1859 open access repositories in the Registry of Open Access Repositories http://roar.eprints.org/ 25,574,178 open access documents in the BASE Search http://www.base-search.net
  18. 18. Content types
  19. 19. Open repositories Publicise an institute’s research strengths, providing maximum return on research investment; Can be mandated by institutions, speeding development; Provide an administrative tool for institutions;
  20. 20. Open repositories (2) Increase impact and usage of institute's research, providing new contacts and research partnerships for authors; Use free software and benefit from free technical support for installation and use; low installation and maintenance costs; quick to set up & gain benefits; Provide usage statistics showing global interest and value of institutional research.
  21. 21. Swan, A. (2010) The Open Access citation advantage: Studies and results to date
  22. 22. Open access Provides access to the world’s research output, free of financial and other restrictions – a level playing field; Incorporates local research into interoperable network of global knowledge; Increases impact of local research, providing new contacts and research partnerships for authors; removes professional isolation Strengthens economies through developing a strong and independent national science base.
  23. 23. Open access (2) There are considerable economic, social and educational benefits to making research and other outputs available without financial, legal and technical barriers to access
  24. 24. EC Open access pilot The European Commission wants to ensure that the results of the research it funds under the EU's 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7) with more than € 50 billion from 2007 – 2013, are disseminated as widely and effectively as possible to guarantee maximum exploitation and impact in the world of researchers and beyond. Open access to research articles helps to increase the impact of the EU's investment in research and development and to avoid wasting time and valuable resources on duplicative research.
  25. 25. EC Open access pilot (2) With access to a wider selection of literature, researchers can build upon this knowledge to further their own work. Small and medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs can also benefit from improved access to the latest research developments to speed up commercialisation and innovation.
  26. 26. ERC Scientific Council Guidelines for Open Access The ERC requires that all peer-reviewed publications from ERC-funded research projects be deposited on publication into an appropriate research repository where available, such as PubMed Central, ArXiv or an institutional repository, and subsequently made Open Access within 6 months of publication. The ERC considers essential that primary data are deposited to the relevant databases as soon as possible, preferably immediately after publication and in any case not later than 6 months after the date of publication. (December 2007)
  27. 27. Ukraine The Parliament of Ukraine (Verhovna Rada) proposed-multi-institutional-mandate mandated open access to research outputs funded from the state budget of Ukraine (the Law of Ukraine “On the principles of Developing Information Society in Ukraine in 2007-2015”, January 9, 2007 ) 1,300 research journals are publicly available http://www.nbuv.gov.ua/portal
  28. 28. Research Communication Cameron Neylon: The future of research communication is aggregation http://cameronneylon.net/blog/the-future-of-research-communication-is-aggregation/ Cameron Neylon: Biochemist, Open Science, Open Access, and bringing more experimental techniques to the biosciences, work at the Science and Technology Facilities Council, the UK’s major provider and supporter of large scale academic research facilities, including synchrotrons, neutron sources, and high powered lasers
  29. 29. Research Communication
  30. 30. Next steps – researchers and students Publish articles in open access journals Self-archive in open repositories Spread a word about open access
  31. 31. Next steps – research managers Introduce open access polices Transform the TA journals into OA journals Set-up open repositories Spread a word about open access
  32. 32. Next steps – libraries Set-up open repositories Help researchers and students to self-archive Help to publish open access journals and create open educational resources Help in data curation and sharing Spread a word about open access
