Paving the way for complete oa

Paving the way for complete OA

Joanne Yeomans & Jens Vigen

CERN Scientific Information Group


Cern already

CERN already…

  • Has an institutional archive = CDS;

  • Mandates deposit of articles in CDS;

  • Harvests articles from a wide variety of sources;

  • Encourages publication in low-cost electronic journals.


However

However….

  • 40% of articles each year are still not available as OA full-text in CDS.

  • For the second year running journal cancellations are faced and we are still tied into “big deals”.

  • Budgets are not organised to enable payment of author-fees.

  • Awareness of the issues is still low amongst many academics.

  • Papers that are not OA are still difficult to obtain.


Cern s new policy identifies areas for target

CERN’s new policy identifies areas for target:

  • Publication in existing OA journals,

  • New OA publishing models,

  • New, competitive OA journals,

  • Conferences published by CERN,

  • Institutional archive deposit.


Paving the way for complete oa

Aims

  • 100% availability of OA CERN articles.

  • Transition of journal titles to OA for OA ‘at source’

    • experimenting with different models.

  • Funds available for publication fees.

  • Author awareness improved

    • publication costs brought into competition with other demands on research budgets.

  • Peer review of OA articles maintained.


Policy

Policy

  • Actively promote author-pays journals.

  • Endorse the use of research funds to pay author fees.

  • Arrange temporary institutional payments to allow publication.

  • Support the start-up of new OA journals.

  • Recognise publication in new OA journals at promotion and selection committees.

  • Better enforce submission to CDS.


A cern roadmap

A CERN roadmap

  • Archive coverage of CERN published articles to 100% OA

    • New publicity to increase archive submission

    • Improve and increase harvesting techniques

    • Start new automatic procedures to obtain articles (via author emails, travel claims)

    • Continue technological improvements to document management and handling techniques (eg ranking, automatic keywording).


A cern roadmap1

A CERN roadmap

  • Change publication behaviour to increase OA ‘at source’

    • Improve publicity for authors

    • Reorganise funds to support author-pays models for OA publishing

    • Analyse journal market to identify potential candidates for support

    • Approach other institutions for collaborative effort to test the market

    • Investigate conversion of existing journals to full OA

    • Increase conference organisers’ awareness of OA.


Our responsibilities

Our responsibilities

  • Improve OA to our own published documents

  • Lend our weight to changing the environment towards increased OA in general


It is time

It is time…

  • To enforce archive submission – there are no more excuses.

  • To experiment with alternative publishing models – some publishers are ready – are we?
