  • Beste Rob,

    Dank voor je compliment.

    1. PhD studenten zijn vaak verrast om te horen dat onderzoeksdata ook gepubliceerd kunnen worden (met een DOI). 'Waarom heb ik dat niet eerder gehoord?' Ze zijn daar zeker in geinteresseerd maar men realiseert zich niet altijd dat dit extra werk met zich meebrengt ;
    2. bij open access denkt men aan gratis in te zien van (hun) publicaties. Men denkt niet zo snel aan 'geld', aan kwaliteit, aan auteursrecht, etc. Men is verrast over de soms hoge APC's of dat zij zelf het copyright van het proefschrift hebben. Als je dat soort zaken aanstipt, komen daar ook vragen over.

    Beantwoord dit je vraag?

Publishing your paper and research data in open access / Leon Osinski

  1. 1. Publishing your papers and research data in open access Leon Osinski, IEC / Library Available under CC BY license
  2. 2. Open access of your publications • What is open access?  a new business model of publishing in which the costs of publishing are paid differently: reader paid versus author paid  Open access is free information: free as in free beer and free as in free speech • Why open access?     because your research is funded with public money because your research is unavailable for the scholarly poor because you retain copyright of your papers because it increases your visibility as a researcher • Open access and quality 2 October 2013 page 2
  3. 3. Open access and quality [ 1 ] When choosing a scientific open access journal to publish a paper in, a researcher is chiefly guided by the quality of the journal. To assess the quality of an open access journal, you may consider the following points: 1. Is the journal listed in DOAJ? See also DOAJ Seal of Appoval Apart from DOAJ large publishers produce fully open access journals as part of their business model which they present exclusively on their websites: Springer (130+), Elsevier (50+), Wiley (20+), Taylor & Francis (16), Nature Publishing Group (17) and Oxford Publishing (15) 2. Is the journal listed in Web of Science?  Open access journals that are covered by Web of Science [only journals of SCI part of WoS]  Journals from all 3 parts of WoS 2 October 2013 page 3
  4. 4. Open access and quality [ 2 ] 3. Is the journal listed in Thomson Reuters’ Journal Citation Report? An overview of open access journals with an impact factor assigned by Thomson Reuters [2009] Very often open access journals are young journals and therefore don’t have an impact factor yet. Because of that, initiatives have been started to develop other quality criteria for open access journals, for example the transparency of the peer review process. 4. Is the publisher of the journal a member of OASPA? Open access publishers that are members of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) commit themselves to a code of conduct with rules that guarantee the quality of the published journals. 2 October 2013 page 4
  5. 5. Open access and quality [ 3 ] 5. Is the publisher of the journal listed in Beall’s list of potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers? An unforeseen consequence of the open access movement is the rise of journal publishers that are after a quick profit and not very particular with quality control (through peer review) of published articles. For an overview of these so-called predatory publishers, see Beall’s List with criteria for determining predatory open-access publishers. 2 October 2013 page 5
  6. 6. Open access of research data 1. Why publish your research data?    Scientific integrity [verification of results] Re-use of research data to advance science [publishing your data in ways that are intelligible, assessable and usable] To increase your visibility 2. Where to publish your research data?       3TU.Datacentrum DANS Figshare Dryad Data journals Integration with your paper 2 October 2013 page 6
