and
discoverability,
OA to publications
The two strategies green OA and gold OA present both strenghts and
weaknesses
•
Green OA : self-archiving of accepted manuscripts require policy, mandates in order to
populate OA repositories, negotiations with publishers, change in habits and behaviour
of researchers, battle against prejudices, false myths against OA
•
Gold OA: economic sustainability to publish peer reviewed OA journals; who is paying?
the authors, their institutions, funders, consortium, sponsors…. again prejudices against
OA
We are in a transition period with a big dilemma: will the research
community take a full charge of the future of OA scholarly communication or
will it wait until commercial publishers lead the OA movement to their ends
at high costs for researchers and for society? (Richard Poynder)
Institutional repositories
•
Mandates : international, national and, institutional issue
•
Is the only way to succeed in making the OA output accessible? Which are the
possible alternatives?
•
How to improve the visibility of institutional research output
• Discoverability (Metadata, persistent identifiers, data citation etc)
• IR as part of the e-research environment
• IR and open research data (long tail data)
OA to research data
Open Research Data is a new area quite complex
•
infrastructure,
•
governance,
•
costs,
•
management plans,
•
policy,
•
sharing behaviours,
•
New skills and professions, training
•
Discoverability
•
Access
•
preservation etc)
•
Discipline differences
which need to be addressed
The role of libraries and Open Science
• Close collaboration between Research
Office, researchers, IT and libraries
• What is the contribution of libraries to this
new dynamic context
• New compentencies and skills are
requested for library professionals
