What Is Open Access Publishing?

Context

Publishers: Cost of making and maintaining journals

  • Professional Management of the peer-review process: Editorial
  • Professional composition: Style, format, technical readability
  • On-line hosting: IT infrastructure
  • Long-term preservation: Storage, maintenance, & upgrade

Readers: Access

  • Should readers pay for the cost?

What Is Open Access Publishing?

Different open-access publishing models

  • Individual articles made free to all readers for a fee
  • Fees used to reduce the subscription cost
  • Fully open-access model:
  • Entire journals free to read
  • An article-processing charge paid for each article

APS operates: Hybrid + Full OA;

+ Green Open Access: allow free article posting on

authors’ own websites

Why Open Access?

  • Benefit to
  • Readers in general
  • Developing countries
  • Small educational or research institutions
  • Industrial research labs
  • Benefit to authors:
  • Broader, systematic distribution of their work
  • More control over financial resources for publication
  • Popular demand & political drive
slide9

Is Open Access the Future of Publishing?

My Personal Take

  • At the level of principle: YES, it should be!
  • In reality: Will it be????

A Revolution Required:

Global-scale restructuring of allocation of financial resources

for supporting scientific publications

Challenges:

  • Scale of the change: global
  • Special-interest groups against the change
  • Human nature: sticking to a habit

The future is also in your hands!
