Gaps and challenges to the Open Access of information: CLACSO´s experience

  1. 1. Gaps and challenges to the Open Access of information: CLACSO´s experience NGO UNESCO Liaison Committee 2016 International Conference of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) Pablo Vommaro (PhD) (CLACSO-UBA)Latin American Council of Social Sciences
  2. 2. The Open Access and Dissemination of Knowledge is a decentralized collaborative and digital action which promotes new ways of dissemination and distribution of social knowledge by promoting open access to research findings and debates in the field of the social sciences. CLACSO also promotes new forms of disseminating knowledge produced by social researchers, in order to reach more audiences and enrich the debate and public opinion in our society. http://www.clacso.org.ar/libreria-lati http://biblioteca.clacso.edu.ar/ More than 80.000 full text in open access
  3. 3. OPEN ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE CAMPAIGN CLACSO promotes a model of open access to knowledge as a human right which is managed as a common good, and based on solidarity, inclusiveness, and non-commercial access, and defends this position in the international arena where commercial and non-commercial alternatives are constantly debated, in order to achieve a renewal in scientific and scholarly communications, and society in general.The CLACSO Virtual Library has more than 80,000 open access documents and 1,000,000 average monthly downloads. It is one of the largest Virtual Libraries in the field of the social sciences in the world. CLACSO publications can be downloaded in open access or be purchased in hard copy at the Latin American and Caribbean Library of Social Sciences, with deliveries worldwide.
  4. 4. Regional inequalities in open access information: international indexes’ sample World scaled by number of documents in Web of Science by Authors Living There Juan Pablo Alperín (2014, LSE Impact Blog) . . . From a total of 5.879 quality journals from Latin America (Latindex) 16 % in Scopus (841 Journals) and 5 % in WoS (294 journals)
  5. 5. Regional Open Access declaration (2005) Salvador de Bahía Declaration on Open Access: The Developing World Perspective (promoted by SciELO) We urge governments to make Open Access a high priority in science policies including: •requiring that publicly funded research is made available through Open Access; •considering the cost of publication as part of the cost of research; •strengthening the local OA journals, repositories and other relevant initiatives; •promoting integration of developing countries scientific information in the worldwide body of knowledge. We call on all stakeholders in the international community to work together to ensure that scientific information is openly accessible and freely available to all http://www.icml9.org/meetings/openaccess/public/docu ments/declaration.htm
  6. 6. CLACSO´s Declaration on open access to knowledge managed as a commons by the scholarly community Principles: 1. Provide open access to publicly funded research results, both texts and data (open access and open data). 2. Promote and fund projects and working groups aimed at improving the quality of scholarly editorial processes; as peer-review and internationalization (e.g.: publication in local language and in English when research is of international interest) in the contents of open access digital repositories, publishing platforms and journals. 3. Encourage editors of scholarly journals to retain control, experience and knowledge of the editorial processes and its products, regardless of the platforms of visibility and indexing with which they share metadata and content 4. Ensure that open access repositories, publishing platforms and publications are interoperable with national, regional and international systems and portals to achieve a multiplying effect on the visibility and access to research results by local, regional and international public. 5. When evaluating researchers and institutions, consider indicators provided by open access repositories, publishing platforms and publications, as well as other measures of impact and relevance in local and regional contexts, to complement traditional international bibliometric indicators that poorly reflect the production and impact of research from developing countries. 6. Support and promote worldwide access to knowledge as a human right, and its management as a commons by the scholarly community. 7. Collaboratives actions with CODESRIA (Africa) and Arab Council for the Social Sciences (ACSS) http://goo.gl/cqx9bl
