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


Published on

Michael Markie talks about open reserch publishing platforms | OSFair2017 Workshop

Workshop title: Open Access Models & Platforms

Workshop overview:
What are the emerging models of Open Access for publications? Who should be involved? How are costs distributed over the stakeholders involved? How can OA platforms innovate further to embrace Open Science? This workshop will discuss and showcase the range of models available, including their costs and organisational aspects, to discuss their relative strengths and weaknesses in different academic contexts.

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

  1. 1. 6th September 2017 Michael Markie @mmmarksman Publisher, F1000 Platforms Open Research Publishing Platforms Moving beyond research journals
  2. 2. Time to evolve how we communicate research
  3. 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. 4. Funder based platforms • The first public funder to be announced in 2 weeks.
  5. 5. Institutional based platforms
  6. 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. 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. 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. 9. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  10. 10. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  11. 11. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  12. 12. Case Study: The Wellcome Trust
  13. 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. 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. 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. 16. Long Term Vision • Open Research Central – platforms merge & across all fields of research
  17. 17. Challenges All cultural, not technical!
  18. 18. Questions and discussion
