Agenda Introduction to NORF (Daniel Bangert, Digital Repository of Ireland) Open Access in Ireland (Susan Reilly, University College Dublin & Niamh Brennan, Trinity College Dublin) Open Access in France (Marin Dacos, French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation) Open Access in Denmark (Hanne-Louise Kirkegaard, Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science & Karen Hytteballe Ibanez, Technical University Denmark) Q&A
  5. 5. Introduction to NORF Daniel Bangert National Open Research Coordinator d.bangert@ria.ie
  6. 6. Ireland’s National Open Research Forum (NORF) Established in 2017 to drive the Irish agenda for Open Research First phase of work included developing Ireland’s National Framework on the Transition to an Open Research Environment (July 2019) Current phase focused on the development and delivery of a National Action Plan Development of the National Action Plan is supported by National Working Groups in five strategic areas https://norf.ie/ https://doi.org/10.7486/DRI.0287dj04d
  7. 7. Towards a National Action Plan for Open Research Aim is to define nationally coordinated actions for research and researchers in the key areas of open access publications, FAIR research outputs, infrastructures, skills and competencies, and incentives and rewards. Three stages/outputs over 2021: ● National Open Research Landscape Report ● Interim Recommendations for Implementing a National Open Research Environment (briefing papers) ● National Action Plan for Open Research in Ireland
  8. 8. National Open Research Landscape Report Aims to provide: ● A snapshot of the current state of open research in Ireland. ● A national summary of the relevant strategic area, progress towards the National Framework Recommendations, identify key gaps and challenges, and highlight examples of good practice both nationally and internationally.

  11. 11. Fourteen Recommendations on Open Access 100% OA Infrastructure ● Repositories ● Monitoring ● Preservation ● Metadata ● Accessibility Policy ● Rights retention ● Transparency ● Equity* ● Diversity 100% OA by 2020 ● Final published version/Authors’ Accepted Manuscript ● No embargo/immediate OA ● Appropriate Creative Common licence (cc-by, cc-by-sa) ● Monographs may take longer * “An underlying principle of the National Framework and associated National Action Plan is that all researchers will have access to the resources necessary to enable them to publish through open access, without prejudice.”
  12. 12. Approach 1 2 3 ● Data sources: Scopus, COKI, DOAJ, OpenDOAR, Keepers Registry, OpenAire, WIPO, SHERPA/ROMEO
  13. 13. OA in Ireland today https://openknowledge.community/dashboards/coki-open-access-dashboard/ *Likely overall percentage is lower as only outputs with Crossref DOIs are considered in analysis ● 47-54% OA (55 in global rankings) ● Green major driver ● Growth in gold and hybrid
  14. 14. Green Shoots ● IReL OA Agreements ● HRB Open Research ● Irish OA journals increasing (TU Dublin, UCC, DBS, DCU Open Access Press,TCD SOAPbox) ● Dictionary of Irish Biography
  15. 15. Key Findings ● Repository Landscape ○ Robust repository landscape (18 respondents to survey) ○ Not all evolving at same pace and in line with funder requirements ● Funder & Institutional Policies ○ Diversity of approaches to funding, licences, communication and compliance ○ Plan S now operational ○ No support for global scholarly communication infrastructure ● IReL Agreements ○ Adopted LIBER principles for negotiating OA agreements (2020) ○ Elsevier agreement: OA for 71% of publishing output ○ 19 agreements online today ○ Potential re structured metadata and bulk import from publishers
  16. 16. Key Challenges and Gaps

Irish Open Access Policy Timeline Adapted by Niamh Brennan, TCD, from slide by Dr Patricia Clarke, HRB & NORF Co-chair 2007 EURAB Recommend- ations to European Commission [Irish Chair] 2008 – OA mandates: all Irish funders; many institutions Sept 2021 To date National Open Research Forum 2 (NORF 2) 2020 – EC Recommend a-tions on Open Science, 25th April, 2018

  19. 19. 1. Open Access Publications as Default 2. Universal repository availability, support & sustainability 3. Facility to self-archive guaranteed 4. Support for diverse publishing practices 5. Scholarly publishing & APC payments 6. Acceptable OA manuscript version 7. Immediate open access, no embargoes (exceptions: arts/humanities) 10. Publisher agreement transparency 11. Enhanced Open Access Publications 8. Acceptable licences 9. Copyright retention 12. Application of standards & indentifiers 13. Criteria for journals, platforms & repositories 14. Sustainability & preservation National Framework: Open Access to Publications – where are we now?
  20. 20. Overarching issues ▪ No national agency with responsibility for implementation, monitoring & coordination of National Action Plan (as yet); ▪ No dedicated source of funding at the national level (as yet); ▪ No national research portal – despite long-established Current Research Information Systems in Irish Research Performing Organisations (many integrated with repositories); ▪ Lack of national-level support for repository infrastructure (technical & human resources); ▪ No national-level support for Irish scholarly publishing (focus of current national OA funding: IReL payment of APCs to ‘Big Publishing’ hybrid journals) with associated inequity, risk to bibliodiversity and other ‘unintended consequences’. ▪ No copyright legislation in support of author / institutional rights retention: anomaly between the law and institutional policies.
  21. 21. Key challenges (NORF OA Landscape Report) ● Set clear baselines & appropriate domain targets for open access, including establishing criteria for monitoring OA at the national level. (NRF 1, 12,13) ● Bring repositories up to a minimum level to support evolving OA requirements & to standardise metadata in line with international initiatives. (NRF, 2, 3, 11, 12, 14, 14) ○ Address human resource issues ● Enact copyright legislation to support rights retention [& rights reversion]. (NRF 9) ● Provide support of equity of choice in OA publishing; assess the national publishing scene and support bibliodiversity. (NRF 4, 5) ● Consult with research communities to understand publishing practices across disciplines. (NRF 2, 4) – on an ongoing basis ● Initiate national coordination and support for digital preservation (NRF 14)
  22. 22. Next Steps for the NORF Open Access WG ● Analyse & incorporate consultation inputs ● Follow up on specific gaps ● Focus on key areas arising from Landscape Analysis & produce briefing papers with draft recommendations (May-September 2021): National Open Access monitoring; Coordinated support for Open Access repositories; Copyright legislation to support rights retention; Study of disciplinary publishing practices. • Niamh Brennan, TCD/OpenAIRE (co- chair) • Susan Reilly, IUALG (UCD) (co-chair) • Fran Callaghan, IUA (DCU) • Aisling Coyne, TU Dublin • Jonathan Dykes, RIA • Arlene Healy, IreL/OGDI (TCD) • Siobhan Horan, KTI • Frank Houghton, THEA (LIT) • Aoife Lawton, HSE • Hugh Murphy, CONUL (MU) • Terry O’Brien, THEA (WIT) • Andrew Simpson, RCSI With thanks and acknowledgements for the work of the NORF2 Open Access WG: Former members: • Yvonne Desmond TU Dublin • Aoife Geraghty (Tu Dublin) • Gráinne McCabe (RCSI)
