  • Thank you so much for having me. I’m really pleased to be speaking here today and to be on this gorgeous campus. Coming from the flatlands of Illinois it’s also quite nice to be able to look out the window and see mountains.What I’m hoping to do in the next little bit is give a quick – whirlwind – tour of some of the trends out there in the broader world of scholarly communication and then to bring those back to the work that all of us do with theses and dissertations and student scholarship. I was very inspired by Char Miller’s keynote yesterday on student scholarship and openness and it made me think a lot about the responsibility we have to our students to give them agency and control and ownership. I hope that I can touch a little bit on these themes through out this talk.

  • Sarah L. Shreeves University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Special Libraries Association – Arabian Gulf Chapter 2014 March 25, 2014 - Doha, Qatar INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS IN OPEN ACCESS: An overview of trends at the national, funder, and institutional levels Open by Matt Katzenburger http://www.flickr.com/photos/matthileo/4826783509/ CC BY-NC-SA 2.0
  • Whether open access is „good‟ is no longer the question.
  • The question is how open access will be implemented and who will make that decision.
  • Open access literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. - Peter Suber DEFINITIONS
  •  Most open access discussions and activities are focused on the peer-reviewed journal literature  Open access can also apply to monographs, conference papers and presentations, textbooks, and other scholarly output  Open access is a model seen across all disciplines, but has the most activity in the sciences. DEFINITIONS
  • TWO (AND A HALF) ROADS TO OPEN ACCESS Open Access Publishing (journals & books) „gold‟ „hybrid‟ Archiving (self, institutional, disciplinary) „green‟ Two Roads Were There by Simon Kirby http://www.flickr.com/photos/1000/187984223/ (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0)
  • GRATIS and LIBRE  Gratis: You can read it for free. Anything else, you better ask permission.  Libre: With credit given, OK to text-mine, re- catalog, mirror for preservation, quote, remix, whatever.  Most OA is gratis. You get to “libre” via Creative Commons licensing, usually. Definitions from Dorothea Salo
  • POLICIES National Funder Institutional Sub-institutional
  • Governments WHO ARE THE ACTORS? Public Libraries Researchers Research funders Publishers Research institutions Business
  • Economic good WHAT ARE THE DRIVERS? Access Sustainability Wide dissemination Return on Investment Customer demand Increased visibility Innovation
  • INSTITUTIONAL MANDATE/POLICY • Often permission based (i.e. the faculty grant rights to institution to make available research) • Successful institutional policies: • Come from the faculty themselves • Include an opt out waiver • Infrastructure support sits in the Library often (usually through the use of an institutional repository) • Do not specify where faculty should publish Widener Memorial Library by Mak506 http://www.flickr.com/photos/mak506/2771080083/ (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0)
  • SUB-INSTITUTIONAL POLICIES - Some departments / research centers - Most often focused on electronic theses and dissertations
  • NATIONAL AND FUNDER POLICIES  National policies are often essentially funder policies (i.e. are put in effect via the funders)  Increasingly private funders – particularly in medical sector – are instituting OA policies
  • Nov 2013 – Argentina passes law that requires publicly funded research to be made openly available in a repository. May 2012 - United Kingdom Finch Report that requires OA with emphasis on „gold‟ Feb 2013 – White House issues a directive to federal agencies to require open access Dec 2013 – European Commission requires OA through Horizon 2020 Initiative. See also national funders in - Australia - Canada - Denmark - Norway - Peru - Singapore….and more
  • CASE STUDY: OPEN ACCESS AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL IN THE US 2005 US National Institutes of Health strongly recommends OA to published research 2006 Introduction of the Federal Research Publication Access Act (also 2010,2012) 2008 US NIH policy enacted into law as requirement of funding 2011 Introduction of the Research Works Act 2012 Research Works Act loses support 2013 Introduction of Fair Access to Science and Technology Act 2013 NIH starts to enforce compliance for OA policy
  • February 2013 John P. Holdren, Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) of the White House, issues a memorandum directing all federal agencies with over $100 million in research and development expenditures to “develop a plan to support increased public access to the results of research funded by the Federal Government.”
  • 2014 - Introduction of the Frontiers in Innovation, Research, Science and Technology Act (FIRST) HOW WILL THE OSTP DIRECTIVE BE IMPLEMENTED?  The Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States (CHORUS) from a group of over 100 publishers and related organizations. See http://chorusaccess.org/.  Shared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) from the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). See http://www.arl.org/focus-areas/public-access- policies/shared-access-research-ecosystem-share  Or ????
  • What‟s next?
  • I see two possible scenarios, one in which publishers effectively appropriate OA to their own ends, another in which the research community takes charge and oversees the development of an OA environment more suited to its needs than the needs of publishers. – Richard Poynder, March 2014
