  • 1. Open Access Suzanne Atkins : Open Access and Research Publications Advisor Digital Assets OA Introduction for Law School June 2014
  • 2. What is ?  The practice of providing unrestricted access to research outputs – free and permanent online access  Mostly applied to journal articles but spreading to books, theses, datasets, OERs  Removal of payment barriers - anyone can read and download the research
  • 3. RCUK/ Wellcome Trust policies  New policy (April 2013) for peer reviewed papers  Papers arising from RCUK (or Wellcome-funded) research must:  be published in an OA compliant journal  acknowledge funder (see RIN guidelines)  Author choice of green or gold OA route, subject to available funds if “gold” route is chosen.
  • 4. Two routes to open access Gold Article processing charge (APC) paid Author/ institution usually pay APC to publisher Free and immediate access on journal’s usual platform Green Self-Archive version in Open Access repository No fees paid to publisher RCUK accept a range of embargo periods after publication Usually accepted version (post print)
  • 5. Routes to Open Access : Green  Self-archive the accepted version of the manuscript (often called post print or author accepted manuscript) in an open access repository  You must keep the final draft of your accepted manuscript for PURE – after peer review, before final formatting  Journals’ own policies and contracts may force use of gold route due to embargoes
  • 6. Routes to Open Access : Gold  Publish in peer-reviewed journals funded by Article Processing Charges (APCs) rather than by subscriptions and access charges  Article immediately available open access to all  Licence for reuse – often CC-BY
  • 7. Permission to re-use  Access to published version AND immediate deposit in a repository without restriction on Reuse (CC-BY licence) (Gold route)  Means others can share your work (copy, distribute and transmit) and remix (adapt) as you are credited as the original creator.
  • 8. Publishing via “gold”  Fully OA journals  no subscription/ APC only  Journal Directories (eg DOAJ)  Hybrid journals  subscription + APC option for OA  ‘double dipping’
  • 9. Choose the best journal for your topic  Use RoMEO to identify publisher copyright policies & self-archiving (what you can do with different versions and what OA options there are) http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/  Use FACT to check whether journal offers options that match your funder’s requirements http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/fact/  Check CTA for your article to check author rights
  • 10. Researcher Decision Tree – ‘Green’ or ‘Gold’? How to meet the UK Research Councils’ requirements on Open Access GREEN OA PERMITTED BY PUBLISHER? GREEN OA – PURE (for UBIRA) AND/OR SUBJECT REPOSITORY PUBLISHER OFFERS GOLD OPTION? PUBLISHER OFFERS CC-BY LICENCE? APC FUNDS AVAILABLE?

  • 11. What are we doing at UoB? In many cases, researchers can self-archive their accepted final draft manuscript in Pure and be compliant with funders and publishers policies. (Green OA)  Institutional repository for OA: PURE – part of UBIRA  Library manages central budget for APCs  Guidance on copyright issues  Preservation  Reporting back to funders, preparing for the next REF – HEFCE Open Access policy (Apr 2016)  Developing preservation of research datasets
  • 12. Top tips  Go as open as you can by depositing final drafts in PURE/UBIRA  Keep accepted final draft version of your work  Be familiar with your publisher conditions. Read any CTA you sign about your rights  If you are funded check what your obligations are on dissemination
  • 13. Open Access support for researchers Library Services support for Open Access  Subject Advisor contact l.anderson@bham.ac.uk  Intranet Open Access pages https://intranet.birmingham.ac.uk/openaccess/  Contact the Digital Assets team openaccesspublications@contacts.bham.ac.uk
