    11. 11. PLOS ONE growth 25000 20000 15000 10000 5000 0 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
    12. 12. Open-access megajournals
    13. 13. Megajournals as a disruptive force • • • • Cost-effective Scalable, and can grow quickly Great for authors Strong competition for conventional approaches • An open platform for research communication
    14. 14. Second disruption Direct funding of OA publishing
    15. 15. Print Online
    16. 16. Estimates the proportion of open access content in Brazil (2008-2011) to be 63% “…no doubt due to the important contribution of SciELO.”
    17. 17. SciELO as a disruptive force • • • • Cost-effective Scalable, and can grow quickly Great for authors Strong competition for conventional approaches • An open platform for research communication
    18. 18. Funders taking direct action
    19. 19. eLife: motivations Swift, fair decisive process Exploit digital Media Serve science Open access
    20. 20. eLife – scope • BROAD From basic and theoretical work to translational, applied and clinical research. • SELECTIVE Highly influential work that advances understanding, opens new doors or has real-world impacts.
    21. 21. Editors • Editor-in-Chief • 2 Deputy eds • 17 Senior eds • Board of reviewing eds ~180
    22. 22. eLife Lens http://lens.elifesciences.org/
    23. 23. Third disruption Reforming research assessment
    24. 24. Researchers (authors and readers) Institutions Librarians Funders Research assessment The public Policy makers Publishers
    25. 25. Some impact is hard to measure “Dear Public Library of Science people, I just listened to a mouse song on line… I do not have the funds to subscribe to the traditional science journals. Tomorrow my students will hear the same mouse song I listened to and I am sure they will be as enchanted and interested as I am. The idea of open access to original research papers is very exciting to someone in my position… I can assure you that the availability of research papers will benefit the future of scientific research by providing motivation and stimulation for millions of fledgling scientists. Sincerely, Science Teacher”
    26. 26. The impact factor is… • a journal-based metric • proprietary • incomplete http://www.flickr.com/photos/m2w2/191545978/sizes/z/in/photostream/
    27. 27. Citations Policy and practice Media Usage Twitter Textbooks Reference managers Wikipedia
    28. 28. v10
    29. 29. New metrics and indicators of scholarship • From one measure to many • From journal to article • From one output to many
    30. 30. • Recommendations for publishers, funders, institutio ns, metrics suppliers, and researchers • >9000 signatories • Make sure you sign up today http://www.flickr.com/photos/24736216@N07/7758828268/ (CC BY-NC2.0)
    31. 31. Summary • Open access publishing is here to stay • Disruptive forces are at work     megajournals direct funding reform of assessment and much more…
    32. 32. Open access is one part of a much broader transition Interoperability Assessment Sustainability http://www.flickr.com/photos/anandham/4499539060/
    33. 33. Happy birthday! Thank you Mark Patterson m.patterson@elifesciences.org
