    • DART-Europe
      • At http://www.dart-europe.eu
      • The principal gateway for the discovery and the retrieval of Open Access research theses in Europe
    • As of 24 April 2011
      • 202,536 Open Access research theses indexed
      • From 335 Universities in 19 European countries
    • Run by UCL Library Services on behalf of LIBER
  • European Platform Local/National Platforms & Access DART- Europe portal Germany Nordic countries France UK Ireland Institution/ Country/ Consortium Spain/ Catalonia Belgium IRs IRs OAI etc. Researchers Discovery & Delivery IRs IR IR IR IR IRs
  • European Research Theses
    • Research theses gain more visibility when available in electronic format, preferably Open Access
      • Good for research and good for the researcher
      • DART-Europe now a target for SFX link resolver
    • Preferred mode of working is for DART-Europe to work with national aggregators
    • DART-Europe working with Europeana to model DART-Europe providing the European view on E-Theses
      • Part of the Europeana Libraries project

    • Conclusions
  • UCL Case Study
    • UCL has an Open Access mandate
    • In the first phase, UCL´s Academic Board, in May 2009, agreed two principles to underpin UCL’s publication activity and to support its scholarly mission:
      • That, copyright permissions allowing, a copy of all research outputs should be deposited in the UCL repository in Open Access
      • The second phase of implementing the mandate was accomplished in Autumn 2010 when UCL’s Academic Board ratified a formal Publications Policy which expands on the two principles agreed in 2009
  • UCL Case Study
    • Close collaboration in the University’s Academic Board and liaison with academic colleagues has been important in taking forward a broad Open Access policy in UCL
    • A second important driver has been the linking of UCL’s Open Access mandate to a pan-university Publications Policy with Open Access as the result, copyright permissions allowing
  • UCL Case Study
    • UCL Discovery is UCL’s Open Access repository
    • As of March 2011, the number of full-text deposits were:
  • UCL Case Study
    • In 2010
      • almost 532,000 records were downloaded from the system,
      • compared to some 305,000 in 2009.
    • UCL Discovery received some 143,000 hits per day in December 2010
    • 76% of its user traffic came from search engines
    • UCL Discovery is a global service
    • Highest number of downloads in 2010 by country were from the UK, with the second highest from USA, and the third highest from China
  • UCL Case Study
    • All UCL’s work has, thus far, been directed towards implementing the Green route for Open Access
      • Aligning copyright/IPR frameworks
      • Producing a UCL Publications Policy, approved by the academic Senate
      • Building capacity in terms of infrastructure to support the move towards Open Access
      • Putting in place workflows to support the new processes
    • What is the role for the Gold route?

    • LERU Roadmap Towards Open Access
    • Conclusions
  • UCL E-Publishing initiatives
    • UCL Publications Board favours work in 4 broad areas:
      • Research publications, particularly research monographs and conference proceedings
      • Teaching support, particularly textbooks
      • Journal publication
      • Data publication
    • UCL is minded to take forward work in all these areas, in a phased way
  • UCL E-Publishing initiatives
    • Journal Publishing
    • There is great interest in UCL in developing an overlay journal publishing system, based on copy housed in UCL Discovery, the institutional Open Access repository
    • Development work being planned would build on the earlier successful RIOJA project (2008)
      • See http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/11927/
  • UCL E-Publishing Initiatives
    • RIOJA project investigated the feasibility of an overlay journal model in collaboration with arXiv
    • RIOJA toolkit comprised a set of XML-based APIs for the exchange of data between digital repositories and journals to facilitate overlaying of academic journals on several digital repositories
    • Overlay Journals have to address issues known to conventional publishing
      • Peer review
      • Sustainable Business Models
      • Academic buy-in
    • EPICURE now being funded by the JISC as a generic overlay journal project for Universities

    • LERU Roadmap Towards Open Access
    • Conclusions
  • LERU
    • A consortium of 22 research-intensive universities in Europe
      • See http://www.leru.org/index.php/public/home/ .
    • LERU is committed to
      • Education through an awareness of the frontiers of human understanding
      • Creation of new knowledge through basic research, which is the ultimate source of innovation in society
      • Promotion of research across a broad front, which creates a unique capacity to re-configure activities in response to new opportunities and problems
    • The purpose of the League is to advocate these values, to influence policy in Europe and to develop best practice through mutual exchange of experience
  • LERU
    • LERU wants to know what position, if any, it should take on the Open Access debate
    • General meeting of LERU Chief Information Officers/University Librarians in December 2009
      • Appointed a Working Group to draw up a LERU Roadmap towards Open Access
      • Road Map is now with LERU Vice-Chancellors for consideration. Outcome should be known by the end of May 2011
  • LERU
    • Purpose of the Roadmap is to offer guidance on how to position your University in the European Open Access landscape
    • Builds on the Open Access Statement of the European Universities Association
      • See http://www.eua.be/eua-work-and-policy-area/research-and-innovation/Open-Access.aspx
    • A Roadmap for all European Universities, not just LERU members
  • LERU Roadmap addresses …
    • Open Access in a wider context: Open Scholarship and Open Knowledge
    • Advocacy Statement on behalf of LERU Universities
    • The LERU Roadmap – an Exposition
    • The Green route for Open Access – Steps to Take
    • LERU and the Gold route for Open Access
    • Models of Best Practice to support the Roadmap
    • Benefits for researchers, Universities and Society
    • LERU is considering funding for a pan-European implementation of the Roadmap

  • Conclusions
    • European Universities are:
      • Developing sustainable services, using Open Access protocols, which bring greater visibility to European research
      • Creating pan-European partnerships, with innovative project funding, to develop cutting-edge projects to support the European user
      • Developing tools for all European Universities to tackle the Open Access agenda
