Transcript of "UCD Library Supports Open Access Day 2008"

  1. 3. <ul><li>Celebrating 5 years of Public Library of Science (PLoS) </li></ul><ul><li>Making full use of the Internet to share and reuse content without restriction is pushing scholarly communication into the future </li></ul><ul><li>Open Access Day acknowledges the enormous progress that’s been made towards comprehensive access to research. </li></ul><ul><li>1. What is Open Access Day? </li></ul>
  2. 4. <ul><li>Open Access Day is a great opportunity to inform everyone on campus about the nature and importance of Open Access </li></ul><ul><li>We also wish to highlight UCD and national initiatives currently under way in the Open Access arena </li></ul><ul><li>2. Why is the Library participating? </li></ul>
  3. 5. <ul><li>A growing international movement that uses the Internet to throw open the locked doors that once hid knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>Making scholarly publications available on Open Access allows them to be freely accessed by anyone worldwide using an internet connection. The potential readership of Open Access material is far greater than that for publications where the full text is restricted to subscribers only. </li></ul><ul><li>The Open Access philosophy was firmly articulated in 2002, when the Budapest Open Access Initiative was introduced. </li></ul><ul><li>3. What is Open Access? </li></ul>http:// www.ucd.ie/library/about/open_access /
  4. 6. <ul><li>4. Open Access takes many forms </li></ul>
  5. 7. <ul><li>The principle that publicly funded research should be freely accessible online, immediately after publication, is gaining ever more momentum around the world as research funders and policy makers put their weight behind it </li></ul><ul><li>Major funders are introducing mandates, requiring research outputs funded by them to be made available in Open Access journals or repositories </li></ul><ul><li>In Ireland IRCSET and HEA both have OA mandates </li></ul><ul><li>SFI is evaluating responses received by June 19 th to its proposal to establish an OA mandate </li></ul><ul><li>5. Mandates </li></ul>
  6. 8. <ul><li>Applies to research publications where one or more researchers receive IRCSET funding </li></ul><ul><li>Applies to all publications after May 1 st 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Author must lodge publications in an open access repository within 6 calendar months at the latest, subject to copyright agreement </li></ul><ul><li>The repository should ideally be a local institutional repository </li></ul><ul><li>Authors should deposit post-prints (or publisher’s version if permitted) upon acceptance </li></ul><ul><li>Applies to peer-reviewed articles and published conference proceedings </li></ul><ul><li>The IRCSET mandate – key points </li></ul>http://www.ircset.ie/news/releases/080501_OpenAccessPolicy.html

  8. 10. <ul><li>An institutional repository is an online database where digital copies of research items such as articles, theses, conference proceedings and working papers are held and made freely available on the internet . </li></ul><ul><li>The records in a repository are stored according to international standards. The content can then be made available to other databases and search engines such as Google Scholar. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Creating an Institutional Repository (IR) for UCD </li></ul>
  9. 11. <ul><li>We are building a repository to hold details plus the full text of UCD research outputs </li></ul><ul><li>Economics researchers are the early adopters </li></ul><ul><li>We will be linking the system to the University Research Management System </li></ul><ul><li>We will be rolling out this service across the University </li></ul><ul><li>Research Online @ UCD </li></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><li>Research Online @ UCD </li></ul>http://irserver.ucd.ie/dspace/
  11. 13. <ul><li>The IReL-Open Project is building online open-access institutional repositories in all seven Irish universities and linking these together through a National Research Portal.
