  • An OA discussion paper was presented to VC’s Committee by UL in late March 2013 VC’s Committee endorsed concept of OA and recommended policy be drafted for Research CommitteeDraft policy prepared and submitted to 9th April meeting of Research CommitteeWorking party established to report back to Research Committee June 2013Research Committee recommended a pilot to report on procedures – this was undertaken for three months July-Sept.Research Committee meeting mid-August 2013 approved draft policy & the proceduresOn the 30 September the Academic Board unanimously approved the policy and procedures for Open Access for UQ Research Outputs which is based on linking to a freely available version of a publication either available immediately or within 12 months of publication, or self -archiving of a post-print.
  • The policy was developed to joint custodians on this topic (ie. both DVC (Research) and University Librarian). Evidence is available from the Australian Open Access Support Group site
  • Stepping back …..In its finest form – full OA permits any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the FT of the articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal or technical barriers…. This is taken from the Budapest OA Initiative.OA refers to the provision of unrestricted access via the Internet - The Budapest Open Access Initiative – February 14, 2002Bethesda Statement 2003Berlin Declaration 2003
  • While open access relies on the consent of copyright holders to share their work, making material open access will not deprive copyright holders of any rights. Copyright laws still applyCreative Commons
  • With acknowledgement going to the Australian Open Access Support Group Some researchers may have access to resources behind a paywall (such as subscription access) though not know how to find themthere are disadvantages – we are seeing the wild west of publishing – as expressed in a recent Science paper A cancer drug discovered in a humble lichen, and ready for testing in patients, might sound too good to be true. That's because it is. But more than a hundred lower-tier scientific journals accepted a fake, error-ridden cancer study for publication in a spoof organized by Science magazine.The fake study points to a "Wild West" of pay-to-publish outlets feeding off lower tiers of the scientific enterprise by publishing studies without any appreciable scrutiny, say research ethics experts. (See "Who's Afraid of Peer Review?") Of 255 open-access journals that said they would review his study, 157 accepted the fake study for publication. "Acceptance was the norm, not the exception," he writes -- raises concerns for the peer review process (taken from )
  • are the two most common routes to providing open access NHMRC / ARC – green definition Sherpa romeo &OAKList – searching australian journals such as Medical Journal of Australia – links to these are available from:– colours can differ e.g. they refer to PLOS as Green --- so don’t be confused!
  • There is increasing support worldwide for making research outputs openly accessible, to maximize their impact and benefit to society. In the United States, building on the now-mature open access policy (2007) for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Obama administration in 2013 introduced a policy requiring open access for publications and data arising from research funded by all major United States research agencies. The European Commission has an open data and open access strategy. In the UK, the Wellcome Trust and Research Councils UK have implemented similar requirements for research publications arising from research that they fund. In Australia, this trend is evidenced by the recent open-access policies, discussed earlier, implemented by two key research funding bodies, the ARC and NHMRC. More than 175 universities throughout the world have adopted open access policies. The latest adopter is The University of Queensland’s major co-publisher and the largest public research university in the world, the University of California. At a time when institutions, such as UQ, are invited to join exclusive consortium such as edX, there is a requirement for the best open access content to form the basis of learning materials for uptake by millions of people worldwide undertaking tertiary studies. “Evidence has unequivocally demonstrated that to have real effect policies must be mandatory, whether institutional or funder policies. Mandatory policies at institutions succeed in accumulating content in their repositories, averaging 60% of total output after a couple of years of the policy being in place. Evidence shows that researchers are quite happy to be mandated to act in this way” Further to this, unlocking scholarly content from open access benefits researchers, educational institutions, businesses, research funders and the public by speeding up the rate of research, discovery and development. A Naturenews article recently reported that more research is presently available than previously thought, based on findings that there is a 50% chance of finding and downloading research published in 2011 for free on the Internet.

  • The NHMRC policy came into effect 1 July 2012, with requirement for the first articles to be made publicly available from 1 July 2013 – regardless of the grant that supported the researchThe ARC – first publications will start to appear after Jan 2014.UQ OA policy for Research Outputs mirrors the ARC & NHMRC policies
  • Both policies: all metadata must be deposited in IR with a link to OA version as soon as possible after acceptancePrefer the deposit of Accepted or Published version into an IRPermit the deposit into a subject repository (linking to the IR)Permit publication in an OA journal (linking to the IR)They both state that if a publisher doesn’t allow OA, the researcher must say so in the Final Report.
  • By delving into conditions this can sometimes be avoidedThough payment for publishing may be possible for most ARC schemes publication and dissemination of project outputs and outreach activity costs may be supported at up to two (2) per cent of total non-salary ARC funding awarded to the Project. This excludes fees for patent application and holding. The cap does not apply to the ARC Centres of Excellence scheme. NHMRC rules state: ‘Publication costs cannot be requested on an application but may be listed as a legitimate cost against DRCs as part of the financial acquittal process.’
  • Based on Sherpa/RoMEO statistics – for post-print or publishers PDF
  • Regarding no. 3:If the journal never allows the article to be made available, this information must be provided at the time of Final Report submission. Institutions may wish to use a publicly available 'holding note' to explain that copyright/licensing restrictions prevent inclusion of a particular article on the repository until a specific date.
  • Neither ARC or NHMRC has agreements with Wiley & Elsevier (as of March 2013), this poses compliance challenges
  • I just thought I would show you two addendum examples which can be used when publishers don’t permit self-archiving:The first one is the general UQ addendumThe second can be used if the work was NHMRC fundedBoth addendums can be found on the libraries open access webpage

  • Activities, costs and funding flows in the scholarlycommunications system in the UK(from the RIN study –the key results of our modelling are that:􀂃 The subscriptions paid by academic libraries globally would fall by £2.91bn. But thesesavings would be offset by an increase of £2.92bn in the charges that the academic andresearch institutions of which they are a part (or their funders) would have to meet inauthor-side publication fees.􀂃 The costs and benefits would be unevenly distributed across institutions: research-intensiveinstitutions would tend to pay more in publication fees than they currently do for librarysubscriptions, while institutions where research constitutes a lower proportion of activityand expenditure would tend to see reductions in overall expenditure.􀂃 In the UK, libraries in the HE sector as a whole would benefit by c£128m. But the UK’scontribution to publication fees would amount to c£213m. The UK’s share of funding to meetthe costs of publication, distribution and access would rise from 5.2% to 7.0%.􀂃 The main beneficiaries would be other institutions that currently purchase journalsubscriptions, but are not major producers of research outputs.

    9. 9. Two ways to provide open access: Gold and Green Gold: Authors publish in OA journals that provide free, immediate access at the time of publication to the articles via publisher web sites. Often, but not always, they may carry author fees, known as Article Processing Charges to be paid to the publisher to make articles Open Access. All Public Library of Science (PLOS) journals use this model Green: Authors publish in a journal, and then make their version of the article, after peer review, with revisions having been made or the publisher’s peer reviewed final draft version freely accessible online by self - archiving or depositing the article in a repository (either institutional repository such as UQ eSpace or disciplinary) upon acceptance for publication 9

    12. 12. ARC and NHMRC • NHMRC Open Access policy came into effect from 1 July 2012 • ARC Open Access policy came into effect from 1 January 2013. – Both state they: require any publications arising from ARC/NHMRC supported research project to be deposited into an open access institutional repository within a twelve month period from the date of publication unless bound by current legal or contractual obligations 12
    13. 13. Both policies Prefer the Deposit of the Accepted or Published Version, also Permit Linking UQ eSpace ASAP after acceptance 13
    14. 14. Both policies • No restriction on where researchers choose to publish • Requiring deposit at acceptance time catches researcher when they are likely to have a copy of the manuscript for deposit • Allow links to in disciplinary repositories e.g., PMC • Mature development of Australian repositories – going green 14
    15. 15. Coverage • ARC is all publication outputs including books • is journal articles only 15
    16. 16. Double Dipping Where the article publication costs for the same article are covered twice, once through a subscription charge and once through an APC, the publisher is said to be “double dipping1” It may be possible to avoid paying APC by publishing in a journal that allows green selfarchiving of the post-print or publisher’s version or linking to the version 1. The UK House of Commons' Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) Committee, "Open Access: Achieving a Functional Market“ Sept 2013 16
    17. 17. Green Open Access • Sixty per cent of journals allow authors to self-archive their peer reviewed work and make it freely available on publication 17
    18. 18. Going Green – avoiding double dipping 1. When selecting where to publish have a look at the going green pie graphs, available: <these will be posted to the OA website> 2. The amount of green indicates the publisher will allow the accepted version to be posted in UQ eSpace after a 12 month embargo 3. Even if you see blue – you don’t need to pay – as we will tag the UQ eSpace record with “doesn’t comply” 18

    25. 25. Illusion of Open • To check the open access status of a journal it maybe necessary to login via the UQ visitor wireless Network • This will allow you to test access to any of the UQ licensed content from on campus - but from a non-UQ IP address. • For example, if you want to test that a resource is really open access, but are not sure if you are really gaining access via a UQ institutional subscription. • Details: 25

    33. 33. Open Access Research Data Open Data is the idea that certain data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. The concept of open access to scientific data was institutionally established with the formation of the World Data Centre system in 1957-1958. World Data Centres were established by the International Council for Science to minimize the risk of data loss and to maximize data accessibility. While the open-science-data movement long predates the Internet, the availability of fast, ubiquitous networking has significantly changed the context, since publishing and obtaining data has become much less expensive and time-consuming.

    34. 34. The Denton Declaration, An Open Data Manifesto Open access to research data is critical for advancing science, scholarship, and society. Research data, when repurposed, has an accretive value. Publicly funded research should be publicly available for public good. Transparency in research is essential to sustain the public trust. The validation of research data by the peer community is an essential function of the responsible conduct of research. Managing research data is the responsibility of a broad community of stakeholders including researchers, funders, institutions, libraries, archivists, and the public. The Denton Declaration, An Open Data Manifesto, The University of North Texas. Web 23 Oct 2012. available
    35. 35. ARC and NHMRC …Research data should be made available for use by other researchers unless this is prevented by ethical, privacy or confidentiality matters
