  • 3 different talks, from 3 different perspectives ONE common theme: Open Attitude Red thread across the afternoon: personal benefits for you Single message: you are only gaining a fraction of your knowledge potential
  • Who is speaker? 3 different talks, from 3 different perspectives ONE common theme: Open Attitude Red thread across the afternoon: personal benefits for you Single message: you are only gaining a fraction of your knowledge potential
  • A brief (and comical) history of knowledge: Knowledge was originally emprisoned here
  • But the burning need to express and communicate, let it out Lascaux Cave Paintings, 20 000 yrs old knowledge
  • A few centuries later (3000 BC) writing is throught to have appeared. Imagine the JUMP from images to written word!
  • Knowledge could now be IMMORTALISED, but also shared. If the JUMP to writing was huge, the next JUMP was even bigger …
  • Johannes Gutenberg`s press (around 1440) accelerated the spread of knowledge …
  • But still in the coming centuries, KNOWLEDGE remained an EXPENSIVE luxury for the privileged few. The press got better, books became cheaper, but the next big JUMP was …
  • Ladies and Gentelmen: The internet !
  • The world of KNOWLEDGE at your finder tips … OR IS IT! Has the modern way of recording and publishing KNOWLEDGE kept up with the techno revolution?
  • COST OF A PAPER: median cost of an academic paper at all universities studied at $72,020, but a cheap one is $50,000 PUBLIC FUNDING. Each year about 1.5 Million pass peer review. What is the COST OF KNOWLEDGE
  • DOES collaboration follow resources? Or does it AVOID barriers? Most likely BOTH
  • So, what happens when WE try to access OUR OWN papers?
  • So after all the effort, research is behind an EXPENSIVE wall. OPEN ACCESS is about removing such barriers LEGALLY.
  • So after all the effort, research is behind an EXPENSIVE wall. OPEN ACCESS is about removing such barriers LEGALLY.
  • Basically after all that effort you HIT A WALL. If you are in a developing country, that wall is significant So, how does that compare with the initial desire to prodice READ, CITED, DISSEMINATED research
  • Is it LEGALLY possible to get from this …
  • To this? UTOPIA or RIGHT?
  • The Laureats think it is our RIGHT
  • In a machine-readable world, YOU CANNOT PREDICT HOW YOUR RESEARCH COULD BE USED
  • Examples of used of accessible knowledge, the SUPPERFICIAL SIDE
  • But an even more POWERFUL example from genetics
  • There are Personal benefits to be gained, if we are aware of the bigger picture And next speakers will tell you what you can do NOW, and where else you can apply and OPEN ATTITUDE
  • This is my notes

    14. 14. “there are some fields (such as crystallography in chemistry) in which research is impeded because publisher copyright contracts forbid the machine data‐ mining of the digital data in the articles. But there is no immediate way to get publishers to allow that, so mandating Gratis Green OA (with the ID/OA compromise) is still the fastest, surest and cheapest way to reach the outcome these fields require.”Source: Giglia, Elena and Harnad, Stevan (2012) Open Access 2012: achievements, further steps, and obstacles.An interview with Stevan Harnad.
