Issues on Scholarly Publishing in Japan
Promotion of Journals to the world wide
– Local to Global
Shift from analog (paper) to electronic
publishing
– Many small-scale journals (mainly in Japanese)
Promotion of university activities with
publishing
– Evaluation of universities
National Institute of Informatics

Strategy
Various access models to reach open
access
– Not simply “open access”
– Provide various models to fit community’s
demands
• Embargo, site license, …
• E-journal platform, digitization of past articles,
institutional repositories

Principal Activities and Outcomes
in the 1st and 2nd phases
National Institute of Informatics
11
(1) Support for Electronic Journals
 All publishing partners are now publishing electronic
English-language editions of their journals
– Some new electronic-only journals as well (ELEX, JIP,
JSME Journals)
 Support for digitization of back issues
– 37 journals have completed digitization back to their
inaugural editions
– Remaining 8 are part-way through the process
 Support for introduction of online manuscript
submission and peer-review systems
– Self-authored systems, J-STAGE, commercial systems
(Scholar One’s Manuscript Central), etc.
– Already introduced by many publishing partners (32
journals)
(Mostly financial support)

NII Institutional Repositories Program
(NII-IRP)
National Institute of Informatics
23
Funding (1)
 NII-IRP (Institutional Repositories Program)
http://www.nii.ac.jp/irp/en/
− 1st period: FY2005-2007
− 2nd period: FY2008-2009
− 3rd period: FY2010-2012

– Three categories of funding
• Area 3: Support for community activities (5 projects)
 DRF; Community of repository managers (include
international collaboration; participation in COAR)
 SCPJ; Development of the OA policy of academic
societies in Japan (include collaboration with SPARC
Japan)
 ShaRe; Promote the shared repository, etc.
– Development of NII’s system infrastructure

 Outline
– Investigate Japanese scholarly societies’ open
access(OA) policies and release results on SCPJ
(Societies Copyright Policies in Japan) database.
– http://scpj.tulips.tsukuba.ac.jp/
Two Features of SCPJ database
− The only database cover OA policies of almost all
Japanese academic societies (about 1,800)
− No policy is a policy: Regard responses of “under
consideration” or “No response” as one of the policies
SCPJ Database (1)

 Color coding of OA policy in SCPJ database
 Two big change in 2010
− The OA policy will be displayed not only by academic societies
but also by journals
− Repository staff who got approval from the officials of the
academic societies will be able to update the policy information

Portal services of Japanese IRs (1)
 NII harvests almost all Japanese IRs
- JAIRO is a “gyroscope” of
IR content
- Use it to search all
IRs in Japan at once!
- IRDB Content Analysis shows
how content is growing and
gives details about each IR.
- CiNii is the largest database of
academic journal articles in
Japan.
- Metadata on journal articles
and departmental bulletins
goes to CiNii and is linked to the
full texts in the IRs.
OAI-PMH
- junii2 is “Dublin Core” application profile for
institutional repository with a OpenURL
compliant schema.
-It has been adopted by almost all IRs in Japan.

  • 32. National Institute of Informatics 31 Portal services of Japanese IRs (1)  NII harvests almost all Japanese IRs - JAIRO is a “gyroscope” of IR content - Use it to search all IRs in Japan at once! - IRDB Content Analysis shows how content is growing and gives details about each IR. - CiNii is the largest database of academic journal articles in Japan. - Metadata on journal articles and departmental bulletins goes to CiNii and is linked to the full texts in the IRs. OAI-PMH - junii2 is “Dublin Core” application profile for institutional repository with a OpenURL compliant schema. -It has been adopted by almost all IRs in Japan. http://www.nii.ac.jp/irp/en/archive/pdf/junii2_en_20090213.pdf 31 junii2
