  • 9. Why is our program Open Access?
    • The management of the journal is less costly
      • Restricted access is so costly in time
    • Mission-related as part of Purdue Libraries
      • Information literacy, scholarly communication, global impact
    • Service-oriented
      • Works well for practitioners, academics in developing nations, and those interested in interdisciplinary fields
  • 10. Challenge 1: Keeping them going
    • Reach agreement with a department or an organization rather than an individual
      • Embeds the journal
      • Invites more parties to become involved
      • Often greater financial resources are available
    • Retain a graduate student to serve in managing editor capacity
      • Oversees day-to-day tasks; acts as liaison with the Press during production process
      • Helps to market the journal
  • 11. Challenge 2: Keeping them funded
    • Cost-out services to department/organization (recover all or most costs for services)
      • Determine all internal and freelance costs to create price list
      • E.g., basic or premium journal
    • Charge article contributors on per page or per article basis
      • Accepted practice in some disciplines
    • Utilize advertisement revenue to defray cost
  • 12. Challenge 3: Overcoming the credibility gap
    • Open Access journals vary widely in quality
    • Indexing promotes an Open Access journal’s validity
    • Usage statistics
  • 13. Future opportunities for Open Access
