  • 2. The Chemist’s Toolkit
    Why should you care?
    What’s in the toolkit? Information on
    Open Access Publishing
    Federal Funding reporting mandate from the NIH Public Access Policy and others.
    Retaining rights to materials - Author Addenda forms.

  • 3. 1. Why Should you care?
    Publishing models are changing.
    Copyright law and perceptions of ownership are changing as everyone can access, modify and share information online.
    Mandates from organizations and funding agencies are requiring researchers to post work online.
    Technology tools can now allow your peers to rapidly share and distribute information.
    Emphasis on globalism in student representation, research projects, and foundations.
  • 4. 2. What’s in the toolkit?
    Open Access – what is it?
    A (new) model to publish journal articles and books
    Also called author charges model, author choice model
    NIH and Federal Reporting Mandates for Research Output.
    Retaining rights to materials with Author Addenda.
    • Copyright and creative commons licensing information.
  • Open Access: Is it all Junk?
    It depends…
    Citation metrics are evolving:
    Impact Factor (Thomson), 1960’s
    h-index (Hirsch, UC San Diego), 2005
    Eigenfactor, 2009
    Eigenfactor™ Score (EF)
    Article Influence™ Score (AI)
    PLOS article level metrics, 2009
    Varies by discipline
    Change over time

  • 8. CC License Types
    Lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation.
    Attribution Share Alike
    Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial reasons, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to open source software licenses.
    Attribution No Derivatives
    Allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, with credit to you.
    Attribution Non-Commercial
    Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.
    Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike
    Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature.
    Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives
    Allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they mention you and link back to you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially. (most restrictive)
  • 9. Digital Repositories
    Subject Repositories (Preprint Archives)
    Mostly Scholarly Articles
    Contain manuscripts of completed, unpublished articles
    Assume items are peer reviewed after submission
    Institutional Repositories = Digital Repositories
    Scholarly Articles: Journals, Books
    Other creative output: audio, video, data, paper reports
    Archival office and non-scholarly output: Newsletters, Reports, Office Files
  • 10. Subject Repositories Physics, Mathematics

  • 11. Retaining Copyright – Author Addenda
    Did you know signing a standard copyright transfer form for publishing journal articles limits your ability to
    Post published article on personal or campus websites
    Post pre-publications of article on personal or campus websites
    Deposit the article in a open access digital repository
    Make print or electronic copies for interlibrary loan, reserves, and e-reserves
    An Author Addendum agreement permits additional publishing posting, and archiving rights to supplement a copyright transfer form.
    Sample Author Addenda
    Science Commons – Scholar’s Copyright Addendum Engine
    SPARC Addendum to Publication Agreement
    University of Michigan Author’s Addendum
