What is Open Access?
“Open access (OA) is the availability of
electronic content to readers without any
access payment”
Three models for Access to Research:
1. Subscription Model – Traditional
2. ‘Gold’ open access – author fee, available
immediately
3. ‘Green’ open access – deposited in repository
after embargo period
What are the challenges / risks?

•
•
•
•
•
•

Self-funded researchers
Low funded fields / nations
Multiple authors / mandates / funders
Ethical risks
Society publishers’ charitable activities
High impact journals require much higher
open access fees
Summary: Current situation
Rapid growth of OA journals and institutional repositories

Individual funding agency mandates - varying policies which
can be confusing
Publisher experimentation continues
OA is fast moving, we are in a transition period

We wants to work with the community to support them,
and be involved in the on-going discussions
Our Stance
“RSC supports Open Access models which seek to ensure that
scholarly publishing activities operate in a long term
sustainable way”
• Maximise availability and accessibility of research
• Maintain standards and ethics of publishing
• Provide a quality service
Gold OA is the best option – sustainable and provides
immediate access
• We recognise researchers are being asked to publish OA, but
may not have the funding
• A reward for all RSC Gold subscribing institutions
• Institutions get voucher codes to publish Gold OA free of
charge
• Number of voucher codes received is what the institution pays
for RSC Gold divided by £1,600
• £6Million invested in free Gold OA voucher codes for RSC
Gold members
"The more that this type of thinking can be seen to permeate
throughout the publishing industry, the better."
Ron Egginton, Department for Business, Innovation and
Skills
Results so far…
•

>600 Institutions qualify for Gold for Gold Voucher Codes

•

715 articles from 163 different institutions in 29 countries

•

Recent spike – 132 articles in October 2013 (72 in September)

•

Institutions include:
•
•
•
•
•

Cambridge University (UK)
UCLA (US)
University of Queensland (Australia)
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (India)
Osaka University (Japan)

The Gold for Gold Example
What do Librarians think?
"This initiative is welcomed, and will serve to promote Open Access publishing to
researchers." ."
•
Lesley Gray, University of Cambridge, UK

Lorraine Estelle, Chief Executive of JISC

• "The University of Queensland to introduce the Open Access
"The Gold for Gold initiative is a great opportunityLibrary is very excited to
participate Chemistry."
Road to our researchers in in the RSC's Gold for Gold initiative as it adds to
Margareta Fathli, KTHthe Library's support for Open Access at UQ.
Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden

"The University of Queensland Library is very excited to
participate in the RSC's Gold for Gold initiative as it adds to
the Library's support for Open Access to faculty at UQ.“
Heather Todd, University of Queensland

And what are we doing for
Green?
We recognise researchers are required by funding agencies to publish
articles OA!

SO…
• New Chemical Sciences Article Repository – JUST LAUNCHED
• a subject specific OA repository for chemistry papers, hosting papers
and linking through to the publisher’s article of record
• Non-commercial
WHY?
Unsustainable as the primary model of OA publishing, BUT
• Important that the quality of the published record is maintained
• Our mission is to promote, support and celebrate Chemistry
Chemical Science Repository
Benefits of our Repository
For Researchers
• Provides easy access to chemistry OA articles in a single place place
For Funders
• Collects funded papers in one place – easing process of checking
compliance
For institutions and Librarians
• Improves the discoverability of the quality work of researchers in your
organisation – raising your profile
“a collection of chemistry data curated by the Royal Society of
Chemistry will be of significant value to the worldwide chemistry
community.” Prof Philip Gale, Head of Chemistry, University of
Southampton
Summary
• We supports both Gold and Green
Open Access models
• Gold is the sustainable model
• Gold for Gold has been very well
received.
• We will continue to improve on our
offerings, including Chemical
Science Repository

Max Espley Royal Society of Chemistry and Open Access

  • 1. The Royal Society of Chemistry and Open Access Max Espley Campaigns Manager Online Information 20th November 2013
  • 2. Who we are The world’s leading chemistry community What we do Advancing excellence in the chemical sciences Why we do it To shape the future of the chemical sciences for the benefit of science and humanity What drives us Bringing chemical scientists together; promoting and sharing knowledge and ideas
  • 3. What do we do? Global membership organisation Professional body qualifications International publisher not-for-profit Education facilitator Activities Conferences & events Science policy campaigning organisation Learned Society charity Library and Information Centre
  • 4. What is Open Access? “Open access (OA) is the availability of electronic content to readers without any access payment” Three models for Access to Research: 1. Subscription Model – Traditional 2. ‘Gold’ open access – author fee, available immediately 3. ‘Green’ open access – deposited in repository after embargo period
  • 5. What are the challenges / risks? • • • • • • Self-funded researchers Low funded fields / nations Multiple authors / mandates / funders Ethical risks Society publishers’ charitable activities High impact journals require much higher open access fees
  • 6. Summary: Current situation Rapid growth of OA journals and institutional repositories Individual funding agency mandates - varying policies which can be confusing Publisher experimentation continues OA is fast moving, we are in a transition period We wants to work with the community to support them, and be involved in the on-going discussions
  • 7. Our Stance “RSC supports Open Access models which seek to ensure that scholarly publishing activities operate in a long term sustainable way” • Maximise availability and accessibility of research • Maintain standards and ethics of publishing • Provide a quality service Gold OA is the best option – sustainable and provides immediate access
  • 8. • We recognise researchers are being asked to publish OA, but may not have the funding • A reward for all RSC Gold subscribing institutions • Institutions get voucher codes to publish Gold OA free of charge • Number of voucher codes received is what the institution pays for RSC Gold divided by £1,600 • £6Million invested in free Gold OA voucher codes for RSC Gold members "The more that this type of thinking can be seen to permeate throughout the publishing industry, the better." Ron Egginton, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills
  • 9. Results so far… • >600 Institutions qualify for Gold for Gold Voucher Codes • 715 articles from 163 different institutions in 29 countries • Recent spike – 132 articles in October 2013 (72 in September) • Institutions include: • • • • • Cambridge University (UK) UCLA (US) University of Queensland (Australia) Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (India) Osaka University (Japan)
  • 10. A changing role for Librarians? • • • • Custodians Communicators Promoters Advisors
  • 11. The Gold for Gold Example
  • 12. What do Librarians think? "This initiative is welcomed, and will serve to promote Open Access publishing to researchers." ." • Lesley Gray, University of Cambridge, UK Lorraine Estelle, Chief Executive of JISC • "The University of Queensland to introduce the Open Access "The Gold for Gold initiative is a great opportunityLibrary is very excited to participate Chemistry." Road to our researchers in in the RSC's Gold for Gold initiative as it adds to Margareta Fathli, KTHthe Library's support for Open Access at UQ. Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden "The University of Queensland Library is very excited to participate in the RSC's Gold for Gold initiative as it adds to the Library's support for Open Access to faculty at UQ.“ Heather Todd, University of Queensland
  • 14. And what are we doing for Green? We recognise researchers are required by funding agencies to publish articles OA! SO… • New Chemical Sciences Article Repository – JUST LAUNCHED • a subject specific OA repository for chemistry papers, hosting papers and linking through to the publisher’s article of record • Non-commercial WHY? Unsustainable as the primary model of OA publishing, BUT • Important that the quality of the published record is maintained • Our mission is to promote, support and celebrate Chemistry
  • 16. Benefits of our Repository For Researchers • Provides easy access to chemistry OA articles in a single place place For Funders • Collects funded papers in one place – easing process of checking compliance For institutions and Librarians • Improves the discoverability of the quality work of researchers in your organisation – raising your profile “a collection of chemistry data curated by the Royal Society of Chemistry will be of significant value to the worldwide chemistry community.” Prof Philip Gale, Head of Chemistry, University of Southampton
  • 17. Summary • We supports both Gold and Green Open Access models • Gold is the sustainable model • Gold for Gold has been very well received. • We will continue to improve on our offerings, including Chemical Science Repository
