Berlin 6 Open Access Conference: Stefano Bianco

  1. 1. infn and open access stefano bianco Infn - istituto nazionale di fisica nucleare - laboratori nazionali di frascati - italy
  2. 2.  What is the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare  Where do we come from  Where are we going  Why we signed the Berlin declaration stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 2
  3. 3.  The Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) funds, promotes and performs publicly-funded, basic research in nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics, in close synergy with Universities, and in the international context. stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 3

  7. 7.  Particle physicists have distributed paper preprints since more than 50 years by post service stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 7
  8. 8. A day in the life of a HEP physicist  Look up arXiv and SPIRES for new preprints  Browse SPIRES for any new citation to my papers  Logon my experiment’s twiki collaborative research web page and check if my student has posted his weekly report  Send email messages to my group using googlegroups.com  Start working stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 8
  9. 9. we are a very well integrated community with Open Access imprinting
  10. 10. still…  … still hep physicists need journals  For rigorous, high quality peer review  Evaluation of publicly-funded research based on bibliometric indeces  INFN has agreed to support SCOAP3 and pledged its share stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 10
  11. 11. INFN and SCOAP3  INFN decided to support SCOAP3 after careful review, under conditions: – Rigorous peer review, excellent quality of journals  publisher becomes quality certification provider – Simple commercial model that even physicists can understand – An expenditure comparable, asymptotically, to the current subscription expenditure – Open Access for fields of research: HEP, nuclear and astroparticle physics  Starting off with HEP, others to follow stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 11
  12. 12.  By endorsing and pledging money to scoap3, INFN stated it believes a new commercial model of common satisfaction for both authors and publishers can be worked out  our experience can be transported to other closely-knit research communities  It is a moral imperative, and a commonly beneficial action, to support the transition to OA for developing Countries stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 12
  13. 13.  By signing the Berlin declaration the management of INFN unanimously has stated its committment in establishing the principle that publicly funded research has to be OA. We are committed to extend the OA paradigm to all fields of research we fund and perform stefano bianco . infn and open access . berlin6 @ duesseldorf . november 14 2008 13
