  3. 3. “Information wants to be free because it hasbecome so cheap to distribute, copy, andrecombine - too cheap to meter. It wants to beexpensive because it can be immeasurably valuableto the recipient. That tension will not go away.”Stuart Brand - The Media Lab: Inventing the Futureat MIT - 1987

Current state of scholarly publishing• 25,000 scholarly journals• 1.5 million articles/yr• 3% annual growth• 1 million unique authors/yr• 10-15 million readers at morethan 10,000 institutions• > 1.5 billion downloads(2007/8)• $8 billion - 2008 revenueenglish STM journal publishingSource: Mabe MA (2009):Scholarly Publishing.

  7. 7. Conventional publication modelResearcher hasan idea, getfunding, conductresearch, gets aresult and writesa papersSubmits paper toa journal andpublisherevaluates andassigns peer-reviewersPaper is peer-reviewedEditor reviewspeer-reviewercomments andeither accepts,rejects or asksfor revisionsIf acceptedjournal publishespaper on theweb and later inprintIf rejected submit toanother journalPublisher retains copyright, sellssubscriptions or access, sells reprints,charges for permissions
  8. 8. Benefits of the conventional model• A proven model with 350 plus years of history• Reliable scholarship• Written by experts• Stringent peer-review helps weed out junk• Assessment has already been done• People with high level filtering expertise, andno search engine can match that• Significant advances seen more easily
  9. 9. So where did OA come from?Or the cons of the conventional model• There are five strands to the OA argument:– the library-funding crisis– that lack of access impedes research– the right to access publicly funded research– the needs of the developing world (HINARI)– the profits of scholarly societies and publishersSource: Robinson A (2006):Open access: the view of a commercial publisher. Journal ofThrombosis and Haemostasis 4(7): 1454-1460
  10. 10. What is Open Access?• Accuracy not significance• Digital• Online• Immediate• Greater transparency• Free to read• Free of most copyright andlicensing restrictions• Compatible with peer review,prestige, quality, career-advancement and indexing• Not free to produceSource: Peter Suber Open Access Overview
  11. 11. Three flavors of OA• Gold Open Access– pay-to-publish (66% of OAjournals do not charge)• Green Open Access– self-archiving (60% of timeresearchers can archive rightaway, no embargo)• Hybrid Open Access– some of the articles are openaccess

  17. 17. Publishers costs of OA• Hindawi – published 22,000 papers in 2012 at acost of $290/article• Ubiquity Press – average costs ar $300/article• PeerJ – costs are in “low hundreds of dollars” perarticle• Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences– need to charge $3,700/article to cover costs ifOA• Nature – estimates internal costs at $30K - $40Kper articleSource: Richard Van Noorden Open access: The true cost of science publishing – Naturehttp://www.nature.com/news/open-access-the-true-cost-of-science-publishing-1.12676
  18. 18. How is OA changing the way we publish• Governments, funders and academic institutions are making fundsavailable for OA through grants, OA funds or buying membershipsthrough publishers• These same groups mandate that articles be made OA immediatelyor after an embargo period (typically 12 months)– 172 institutional mandates, 37 sub-institutional mandates and 81 funder mandates(ROARMAP - http://roarmap.eprints.org/)– NIH, Institute of Education Sciences, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, RCUK,European Research Council, Inserm, Wellcome Trust, Howard Hughes MedicalInstitute, Max Planck Society, MIT, Harvard, University of California , Columbia,NYU, Stanford• A growing number of conventional publishers are offering OAoptions (June 6, 2013 - 181 according to SHERPA RoMEO -http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/PaidOA.html)
  19. 19. How is OA changing the way we publish• OA has led to the decoupling of the journal and the article– Impact factor is loosing its impact– Article level metrics– Greater prestige for the article• Authors are retaining copyright and greater control over their ownresearch• Reduced article peer-review, processing and publication timelines• Increased use of enhanced media, social media, sharing and re-use• Feedback is immediate and discussion is open to all• Allows for greater experimentation– Pre-print servers (arXiv)– Post publication peer review (F1000 Research)– Open peer review (BMJ Open)– Publish referee reports (EMBO, BMC)
  20. 20. Limitations of OA• Prestige - base evaluation and the value ofresearcher and research on citation indices andthe Journal Impact Factor• Quality control – not all OA publishers are equal• APCs (Article Processing Charges) – not allresearchers can finance their publications, needfor increased funding• Fewer options among journals with status/highimpact factor
  21. 21. What does the future hold?• Greater funding and support for OA (gold andgreen)• Reduction or an all out elimination of embargos• Fluid papers not static PDFs– “Paper of the future” embedded with media, raw dataand analysis tools1– Article of the futurehttp://www.articleofthefuture.com/• eBay for scientific research, highest bidder getsthe paperSource: 1.
