  13. 13. scholarship entrenched in idea of transmitting knowledge via paper mentality reflected even in the way we describe “papers” static, one-dimensional documents
  14. 14. in the digital world, “papers” can become living, breathing works no longer static PDF documents linking to data sets, other relevant papers, information, plasmids, genes
  15. 15. oldest scientific journal published in english- speaking world 1665
  16. 16. need to change the way we think of scholarly publishing, of knowledge sharing paradigm shift begin thinking of “papers” as containers of knowledge
  17. 17. “papers” IGFBP-5 plays a role in the regulation of cellular senescence via a p53-dependent pathway and in aging-associated vascular diseases
  18. 18. “networked knowledge” IGFBP-5 plays a role in the regulation of cellular senescence via a p53-dependent pathway and in aging-associated vascular diseases
  19. 19. content needs to be legally and technically accessible
  20. 20. copyright locks that container
  21. 21. traditional transfer of copyright agreement
  22. 22. “ By open access to the literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.” Image from the Public Library of Science, licensed to the public, under CC-BY-3.0
  23. 23. “The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.”
  24. 24. legal implementation
  25. 25. publishers of journals, other publications: looking to make their journals Open Access > 500 journals under CC-BY 2008, ~1,000 will implement OA philosophy using CC early adopters: Public Library of Science BioMedCentral Hindawi
  26. 26. promote author’s rights

  32. 32. no office superstores for science no internet marketplaces for science
  33. 33. the reality ... materials difficult to find, fulfill, lack resources reagents and assays often re-invented or reverse engineered locked in contracts, bureaucracy, deliberate withholding, “club mentality”
  34. 34. solves the access problem via contract UBMTA (standardized material transfer agreements, or MTAs) SLA SCMTA standard icons, CC methodology, metadata
  35. 35. build offer through simple set of choices (post-authentication)
