Transcript of Open Access: an introduction

What It Does It allows the reader to access scholarly literature without paying (Keeping budget costs down for institutions) What It Is "Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. What makes it possible is the internet and the consent of the author or copyright-holder." ~ Peter Suber, MIT What it is, what it does, why we care Varieties of Open Access Concerns Copyright and Licensing Susan Watkins, Erin McCoy An Introduction to Open Access "OA literature is not free to produce, even if it is less expensive to produce than conventionally published literature. The question is not whether scholarly literature can be made costless, but whether there are better ways to pay the bills than by charging readers and creating access barriers. Business models for paying the bills depend on how OA is delivered." ~Suber It allows authors to be more widely read and, by extension, cited more frequently (increased impact) Allows authors in specialized fields to publish their work and disseminate it quickly Acceptance and prestige Content to put in:
Faculty Research
Student Research
Collaborative projects "Green" Open Access "Gold" Open Access Institutional Repository Peer-reviewed journals in specific fields Authors/scholars need to take more ownership of their knowledge product Allow OA journals to be used in consideration of promotion and tenure Commit to reviewing and contributing
to OA journals in order to raise prestige Knowledge and Access Assumption: knowledge should be freely available Laakso M, Welling P, Bukvova H, Nyman L, et al. (2011) The Development of Open Access Journal Publishing from 1993 to 2009. PLoS ONE 6(6): e20961. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0020961

Open Access Now you know what we know http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Roar1aug2011.png Benefits of Open Acces Author Access gaps are happening even at affluent institutions and worse still in the developing world. For instance, in 2008, Harvard subscribed to 98,900 serials and Yale to 73,900. The best funded research library in India (Indian Institute of Science) subscribed to 10,600 Concerns over distribution of research products to/from developing world areas "....knowledge is non-rivalrous. We can share it without dividing it and consume it without diminishing it. My possession and use of some knowledge doesn't exclude your possession and use of the same knowledge"~ Suber Panel Response Dr. Donald Yerxa
