  • Transcript

    • 1.  AcademiX 2010 Innovation and Open Access in Scholarly Journal Publishing May 14, 2010
    • 2. Where I am I coming from?
    • 3. What is open access in the domain of scholarly publishing?
    • 4. Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. What makes it possible is the internet and the consent of the author or copyright-holder. In most fields, scholarly journals do not pay authors, who can therefore consent to OA without losing revenue. In this respect scholars and scientists are very differently situated from most musicians and movie-makers, and controversies about OA to music and movies do not carry over to research literature. OA is entirely compatible with peer review, and all the major OA initiatives for scientific and scholarly literature insist on its importance. Just as authors of journal articles donate their labor, so do most journal editors and referees participating in peer review. OA literature is not free to produce, even if it is less expensive to produce than conventionally published literature. The question is not whether scholarly literature can be made costless, but whether there are better ways to pay the bills than by charging readers and creating access barriers. Business models for paying the bills depend on how OA is delivered. Peter Suber, http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/brief.htm, accessed October 21, 2009
    • 5. What are the existing varieties of open access scholarly publishing?
    • 6. How does open access scholarly publishing impact students?
    • 7. How does open access scholarly publishing impact other kinds of communities?
    • 8. Be open or be obscure. Be open or be self-defeating. Version 1: Hindering one’s research career Version 2: Alienation (in both legal and Marxian economic sense) Version 3: Toll access is wasteful and destructive to necessary institutions Be open or be unhelpful to those in need. Be open or never get mined, remixed, or mashed up. Be open or never get preserved for the long haul.
    • 9. Some Emergent Innovations
    • 10. New Opportunities and New Genres
    • 11. The race to open legacy journal content
    • 12. Toward a (even) more curatorial model of scholarly editing
    • 13. So what’s the holdup? http://www.flickr.com/photos/ oberazzi/318947873/ http://creativecommons.org/ licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/deed.en By Oberazzi
