OSFair2017 Workshop | Open reserch publishing platforms: Moving beyond research journals

  1. 6th September 2017 Michael Markie @mmmarksman Publisher, F1000 Platforms Open Research Publishing Platforms Moving beyond research journals
  2. Time to evolve how we communicate research
  3. Changing requirements of funders/institutions Drive towards open data, software and materials Demand for rapid access Demand to accelerate impact Drive to open & collaborative research
  4. Funder based platforms • The first public funder to be announced in 2 weeks.
  5. Institutional based platforms
  6. - a service to their researchers - outlet (complementary) for all research findings - testing new approach to improve science & its impact: - accelerate access & sharing of findings & data - efficiency - to reduce waste & support reproducibility - alternative OA model - access, transparency, cost - enable researchers get credit & recognition for a wider range of research outputs (DORA declaration) Why launch a funder/institutional platform?
  7. “To improve the way research is communicated by enabling researchers to publish in an open and accessible way” • Make it easier for researchers to provide information that supports reproducibility. • Support a move away from the flawed metrics of the Journal Impact Factor and related measures. • Help to “shift the needle” and inform new policies on researcher assessment. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  8. How it works: • Articles that pass peer review will be fully indexed in Europe PMC, PMC, PubMed, Scopus, Google Scholar and other bibliographical databases.
  9. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  10. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  11. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  12. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  13. Case Study: Wellcome Trust  112 Published Articles  75 Articles indexed in PubMed, PMC & Europe PMC. Total Article views: 45,500 Total downloads: 10,000
  14. What are the Benefits? • Fast – articles published within a week • Inclusive – can publish all research outputs • Open – fulfils funders OA & data sharing requirements • Reproducible – data published alongside article • Transparent – open, author-driven, peer review • Easy – costs are met directly by the funders
  15. • Prove the model works effectively: can accelerate impact • Researchers embrace approach, supported by Funders/Institutions • Publisher role changes: from gatekeepers to facilitators; compete to provide best services • Changes piste for metrics: greater access to range of research outputs & data on behaviours/contributions Long Term Vision
  16. Long Term Vision • Open Research Central – platforms merge & across all fields of research
  17. Challenges All cultural, not technical!
  18. Questions and discussion
