Green vs. Gold Open Access• Green • Self-archiving • About 80% of journals are “green” • Authors need to be aware and act • Keeps adoption from reaching its potential • Embargoes• Gold • Publishing model • Published version is openly available • About 5% of journals are “gold” • More scholarly publishers experimenting with OA journals
Open access benefits to the researcher • Noted citation advantage • The Open Access Citation Advantage – Alma Swain, 2010 • The Effect of Free Access on the Diffusion of Scholarly Idea -- Heekyung Hellen Kim, MIT Sloan School of Management • Data Sharing Effect on Article Citation Rate in Paleoceanography – Jon Plum Analytics Confidential Sears 2011 (abstract) • Citation Advantage of Open Access Journals -- Gunther Eysenbach, 2006 • 71,000+ article views! • Avoiding Duplication • Unavoidable when scholarly communication is not open 5
