JKUAT Case on Open Access

  1. 1. JKUAT CASE ON OPEN ACCESS PRESENTERS Mang’ira, Roselyne, PhD Midigo, Richard Omolo
  2. 2. HOW JKUAT HANDLES OA  INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORY  Have developed and adopted an IR Policy (2012) that stipulate data harvesting  JKUAT has established Digital Institutional Repository for handling Research outputs and any other documents meant for OA. These include: Publications / articles Theses and Dissertations Conference papers Public Lectures Speeches  Now mandatory for PG students to deposit verified soft copy in PDF to the library before they graduate.
  3. 3. Cont’…  JKUAT UNIVERSITY AND LIBRARY WEBSITE  Promote OA by providing links to open databases e.g. CABI; OPENDOAR; Open data provided by science direct, springerlinks  Through the website, we promote new open data by creating alerts, provide e-list of open data, etc
  4. 4. How Open Data is channel Use of Social media where we have dedicated a librarian to monitor and respond to any arising issues e.g. Face book to communicate any new information on OA to users and they give their feedback; Twitter
  5. 5. Cont’…  Workshop/ Training/ Seminars for users  Sensitize them on the existing Open data during such training for different groups of library users.  Use this forum to sensitize on benefits of OA (visibility, citation, curb plagiarism, Encourage to publish on open access, to submit their work without fear for uploading on IR since they are more secure there, etc)  Deliberate move has been made such that OpenDoar data forms part of e-resources that are being marketed  As we promote purchased/subscribed e- resources, we ensure that we also talk about open access data that are given as a package by suppliers e.g. from science direct and inform that they are authoritative/ authentic
  6. 6. Cont’… Online tutorials We have come up with video / documentaries purposely to market open data, etc. This is place strategically on the face of the library website
  7. 7. CHALLENGES FACING JKUAT Lack of infrastructure such as:  Heavy duty scanners to digitise back files  Servers that provide adequate storage space Archiving cost projection (Difficult to estimate future available data) Perception and mindset about the authenticity of open data (many regard as low quality) Poor reward system e.g. no monetary attached, no promotion, etc
  8. 8. Challenges Cont’… Failure to implement developed policy in totality Lack of coherent comprehensive policy documents, e.g. JKUAT has adopted Digital Repository Policy but lacks Open Access policy Intellectual property Rights: Most authors unknowingly or knowingly have given publishers all ownership rights and are unable to access those documents freely Authors have to pay some amount to publish on open access Journals, hence becomes a deterrent factor
  9. 9. MATERIALS USED TO ADVOCATE FOR OPEN ACCESS Posters for DOAJ/DOAB JKUAT DIGITAL REPOSITORY POLICY
  10. 10. RECOMMENDATIONS Institutions should undertake a deliberate move to increase allocation of funds to purchase infrastructure (scanners, servers, etc) and/or outsource services Directive from the CEO that research output be made visible through creating accounts with Google scholar, creating links through institution website, uploading work to IR Institutions should accept to meet publishing cost on open access journals
