  8. 8. But the paywall remains as robust and as prosperous as ever 7 To achieve open access on a large-scale, we need to enhance our efforts with a strategy that addresses the subscription system head-on. t $10bn global revenue 5% of revenue
  9. 9. 8 Libraries hold the financial leverage to accelerate the transition to open access We pay $5,000 per research paper via subscriptions* Economic interest of > $150,000 per article copyright STM publisher profit margins 30-40% Publisher OA revenues are increasing unmonitored and unchecked *Schimmer, R., Geschuhn, K.

  11. 11. EXPRESSION OF INTEREST 10  While continuing to support new and improved forms of OA publishing, we aim to transform a majority of today’s scholarly journals from subscription to OA publishing in accordance with community-specific publication preferences.  We will pursue this transformation process by converting resources currently spent on journal subscriptions into funds to support sustainable OA business models. OA2020 Guiding Principles

  31. 31. @oa2020ini 30 Subscription Model: Unsustainable “Public institutions like ours can no longer afford to participate in a traditional, subscription-based marketplace in which the profit margins of the big for-profit scholarly publishers come in at 35 percent or higher.” Donald Barclay, Deputy University Librarian, UC Merced “With the cost of subscriptions to journals increasing by an average of 6% per year, libraries can no longer afford to continue absorbing the cost of subscribing to so many subscription-based journals.” Diane Bruxvoort, Dean of Libraries, University of North Texas
  32. 32. @oa2020ini 31 Open Access: Right Thing To Do “Open access to scholarly information is good for scholars, good for the average person, and good for human progress. We see the pathways being opened via OA2020 as the best hope for achieving the goal of open access on a reasonable timeline.” Donald Barclay, Deputy University Librarian, UC Merced “As the primary customers for scholarly journals, academic libraries need to take leadership in converting academic publishing from a subscription model to one where other models of funding allow journals to be made free for all to read.” Diane Bruxvoort, Dean of Libraries, University of North Texas
  33. 33. @oa2020ini 32 Community Action
  34. 34. @oa2020ini 33 Iowa State and OA2020 “Open Access is an intrinsic value for our faculty. The OA2020 initiative is an exciting opportunity, because it represents an organized, global effort to enhance the affordability and accessibility of the dissemination of research results and other scholarly work products.” Timothy Day, Faculty Senate President, Iowa State University
