  32. 32. Creating support for OA, a grassroots approach• Hannelore Vanhaverbeke (KUL)• hannelore.vanhaverbeke@doc.kuleuven.beThe University of Leuven actively promotes Open Accessamongst its researchers. Full texts can easily be deposited inthe university’s institutional repository and researchers canopt for public access to their articles. Instead of relyingexclusively on a top-down approach, the support of OA-enthusiasts of different backgrounds and stages in their careeris harnessed to spread the message on the work floor. Thisinitiative is still in its infancy, but we hope to have given a startto a “grass roots” movement strengthening support for OpenAccess.” Open Access to Excellence in Research, Brussels, 22/10/2012
  33. 33. Creating Support for Open AccessA Grass Roots Approach at theUniversity of Leuven Hannelore Vanhaverbeke Research Coordination Office University of Leuven
  34. 34. Open Access at Leuven University• No OA/full text upload mandate• Policy: Green Road (through repository ‘Lirias’) stimulated – for post-prints (post-review) – for international journal articles • PhDs: obligatory archiving since 2006
  35. 35. Open Access at Leuven University• uploading of a variety of formats possible• different degrees of accessibility – public (= OA) – private – intranet - embargo• direct link to SherpaRoMEO based on journal ISSN• tracking paper impact : integrated Google Analytics (nr and origin of views & downloads)• OA helpdesk• information sessions
  36. 36. Open Access at Leuven University• ca. 278.500 entries in the repository – largest OA repository in Belgium, 15th worldwide (http://roar.eprints.org/) – 31.000 entries with at least 1 upload (mainly text pdf) • = 11% – of which 17.300 OA • = 6% of all entries • 56% of all entries with uploads
  37. 37. Open Access at Leuven UniversityNot mandated entries with uploads 11% Private 9% EmbargoIntranet OA 35% 56% entries without uploads 89%
  38. 38. Open Access at Leuven University• Since Febryary 2012 – Data on uploads and OA tracked – Increase in nr of entries with uploaded files (text) – Decrease in nr of OA uploads – => message of provide your entries with full texts well received – But: people seem to be hesitant to provide OA
  39. 39. Open Access at Leuven University• Unnecessary hesitation for OA! – just provide the correct paper version
  40. 40. Open Access at Leuven University• On the one hand – a small group of researchers uploading full texts, data files etc. – with a clear predilection for OA• On the other hand – centrally promoted OA, no mandate
  41. 41. Open Access at Leuven University – a small group of researchers uploading full texts, data files etc. – with a clear predilection for OA• => local support engaged: OA ambassadors (“Grassroots” approach) – = volunteers, researchers (pre- & post PhD, professors) OA enthousiasts, locally promoting OA in their faculties/departments, geared towards specific publication behaviour and ‘anxieties’ in their field
  42. 42. Open Access Ambassadors• Interviews & editorials – Campuskrant – Newsletter RCO• Local information sessions• Local debate fora• Local contact person for OA questions

  44. 44. Monitoring OA, a Pilot Study in Belgium and the EU• Paola Di Maio (ISTCS.org)• paola.dimaio@gmail.com• istcs.orgThe Open Access Monitor (OAM) methodology was developedto enable the remote auditing of open access resources, and astudy was carried out in the UK, showing that over 50% ofpublicly funded research projects do not produce knowledgeresources that can be found via searches on the openweb. This talks introduces the methodology, the outcomes ofthe study and outlines a pilot for a comparative study forBelgium and across the EU. Open Access to Excellence in Research, Brussels, 22/10/2012

  47. 47. OVERVIEWIntro, BackgroundResearch QuestionsChallengesMethodologyStudyResultsPiloting in Belgium and EuropeContacts
  48. 48. INTRO, BACKGROUNDResearch emanates from recently completed PhD work (2009-2012)An independent research institute (ISTCS.org) was formed in 2009 to serve as umbrella organisation to develop the outcomes of the research furtherThe institute is a virtual global multilingual entity with multilingual physical presence through partner networks
  49. 49. PROBLEMI set off to carry out research with funding from an EPSRC project (NECTISE), however I was unable to determine the state of the art because I could not access research outcomes, the few papers that I could access did not have the information/data I expected to containVarious issues and questions surfaced, in this talk I only cover one, in the following slide.
  50. 50. RESEARCH QUESTION andCHALLENGES1) Why, despite the existence of open access policies, many research outcomes generated with public funding are not accessible as shared knowledge resources? 2) How many actual open access resources (papers and other knowledge outcomes) are produced per funded project?(some of the) CHALLENGES• Few studies available, very few datasets about OA• No method to quantify/track open access outputs• Specialised, skill intensive task, and not enough human resources available to track/monitor
  51. 51. METHODOverall study of a complex socio technical problem space adopted EBR (Evidence Based Research) and MMR (Mixed Method Research)Method developed is called OAM (Open Access Monitor), consisting of a process, a set of templates to enable anyone to monitor the adoption of open access policies
  52. 52. STUDYThe first study was carried out over 100 EPSRC funded projectsin the UK, in a specific domain(systemsengineering research).
  53. 53. EXTENDING THE STUDYTWO DIRECTIONS:EXTEND TO OTHER DOMAINS (In part already done in the UK, where smaller studies were carried out in neighbouring disciplines)EXTEND TO OTHER COUNTRIES (the purpose of this talk)
  54. 54. PILOTING IN BELGIUM AND EUDOa EU wide study, starting with Belgium, then extend to other countries:- locate a suitable set of publicly funded portfolios (looking for a similar number, approx 100)- carry out OAM audits- Ccmpare qualitatively and quantitatively the outcomes and draw conclusionschallenge: language (english only)
  55. 55. FUTURE STEPS AND PARTNERSSETTING UP A NON FOR PROFIT ORGANISATIONAL ENTITY OF SORTSFIND PARTNERS TO FORM A EU WIDE CONSORTIUM?LOOK FOR SUITABLE RESEARCH FUNDING AND/OR AN ECONOMIC MODEL FOR THE WORKRelated work presented at Digital Research Oxford 2012Monitoring Open Access as a Web Service(links to a poster)
  56. 56. CONNECT and COLLABORATEThank you, if interested to work together on this please lets talk!!Best regardsPaola.dimaio(*&@*7%g/m/a/i/l)
  57. 57. OA journals, between access and visibility• Margaux Hardy (ULB)• mhardy@ulb.ac.be“I would like to put into perspective the politicalclaim for taxpayer access to publicly fundedresearch with the scientific need for visibility” Open Access to Excellence in Research, Brussels, 22/10/2012
  58. 58. OA and Open Data initiatives at the RMCA• Boris Jacob (Royal Museum for Central Africa)• boris.jacob@africamuseum.be• http://www.africamuseum.be• @africamuseumbeThe Museum aspires to be a world centre of research andknowledge dissemination on past and present societiesand natural environments of Africa, and in particularCentral Africa.

  69. 69. OA in Historical Demography. Opportunities and challenges• Paul Puschmann (KUL)• Paul.Puschmann@soc.kuleuven.beThe European Historical Population Samples Network(EHPS) is trying to launch an open access journal inhistorical demography. On the one hand, this talk will giveinsight into the opportunities Open Access offers for thisspecific branch of research in terms of free access to data,scripts and research results. On the other hand, some ofthe practical obstacles on the road to open access will beelucidated on the basis of personal experiences. Open Access to Excellence in Research, Brussels, 22/10/2012
  70. 70. Open Access in Historical Demography - Presentation at the Open Access Week - Brussels, Paleis der Academiën 22 October 2012 Paul Puschmann & Koen Matthijs Family and Population Studies (FaPOS) KU Leuven, Belgium
  71. 71. Personal Background• Ph.D. Student in Historical Demography• External Specialist of the European Historical Population Samples Network (EHPS) o Involved in the establishment of an Open Access Journal in Historical Demography• Open Access Ambassador at KU Leuven o Promoting Green Route of Open Access at the Faculty of Social Sciences Open Access to Excellence in Research, Brussels, 22/10/2012
  72. 72. New Opportunities• Making research results, extraction programs, scripts, documentation, etc. freely available for everybody o Increases visibility and citation chances. o Enlarges transparency of research and makes results better verifiable. o Decreases inequality in access to research results around the world. o Decreases dependency of scholars of commercial publishing houses. Open Access to Excellence in Research, Brussels, 22/10/2012
  73. 73. Getting Established is not Easy Some of the Challenges and Questions o Getting an overview of costs involved in the establishment and functioning of the journal. o Raising durable funding for the journal. o Who takes up the work publishing houses previously took care of, e.g. lay-out, language check, proof reading, etc.? o Finding people willing to publish in a newly established Journal of which the future is uncertain.

Risks in the Transition to Open Access• Moving from restricted access to journal publications to restricted possibilities to publish. o reader-paid model is more and more replaced by an author-paid model• Longevity of journals might decrease, as funding might become less sustainable.• New peer-reviewed journals might be harder to establish, because of the costs involved. A trend away from peer- reviewed (and away from quality control) might be the outcome. Open Access to Excellence in Research, Brussels, 22/10/2012
  75. 75. What is Necessary?• More financial and practical support from universities and funding agencies, like FWO and ESF.• More guidance regarding the different pathways to establish and maintain Open Access journals in practice.• More institutional promotion, also financially, of Open Access.• More collaboration between initiators and editors of different Open Access Journals.
