      The Chemist’s Toolkit for Publishing and Promoting your work on the Internet
      Publishing and Promoting Chemistry in the Internet Age
      NERM 2009
      October 9, 2009
    • 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.
      Copyright and creative commons licensing.
      The benefits of having a toolkit
      Maintaining your toolkit: keeping up to date
      The Future: What to expect
    • 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.
    • 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
    • Finding Open Access Journals and Repositories
      DOAJDirectory of Open Access Journals
      Open DOAROpen Directory of Open Access Journals
      Open J Gate Search platform: Open Access Journals
      ACR Cross Archive Search Service
      ROAR Registry of Open Access Repositories
      SHERPA/RoMEO Publisher Archiving , Copyright Policies
    • Recent Legislative Activity and Policies
      Dec 2007 European Research Council (ERC) Guidelines for Open Access
      Jan 2008 US National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access PolicyNOT-OD-08-033
      Feb 2008Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences Open Access Mandate
      Sept 2008 US Fair Copyright in Research Works ActHR 6845
      Jan 2009 US NSF Advisory Committee on Cyberinfrastructure(ACCI) recommends Open Access for data, publications and software
      Feb 2009 Fair Copyright in Research Works Act reintroduced HR 801
      June 2009 Federal Research Access Act of 2009 introduced S.1373
    • Copyright Law and Creative Commons
      Copyright Advisory Network
      Creative Commons
      Copyright Alliance
    • 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)
    • 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
    • Subject Repositories Physics, Mathematics
      rePEc Economics
      E-LISLibrary and Information Science
      Dlist Information Science
      PhilSci Philosophy of Science
      CogPrints Psychology
      PubMedCentral Health, Nursing, Biology
      Elsevier Preprint ArchivesComputer Science, Chemistry, Math
      Nature Precedings All areas of science
    • 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
      More information on Open Access
