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.

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?
