  • Paying Open Access Publishing Fees
    2008 to pay for article processing fees in Open Access journals The fund is open to all faculty staff graduate students and postdoctoral researchers at the University of Calgary and will support article processing fees of any amount However before applying for funding through this programme authors must have exhausted all other options for paying Open Access fees such as using a portion of their research grant The fund will pay the Open Access fees of peer reviewed journals that meet the following eligibility criteria a Journals which are fully Open Access That is all of the content of the entire journal is freely available online immediately after peer review and editing upon payment of the article processing fee Examples of publishers with suites of fully Open Access journals that charge article processing fees include BioMed Central BMC Co Action Publishing Hindawi Publishing Corporation PhysMath Central PMC and Public Library of Science PLoS Fully Open Access journals from publishers who have few such journals are also eligible For example Oxford University Press has Nucleic Acids Research DNA Research and Evidence based Complementary and Alternative Medicine b Journals which are not fully Open Access but which allow individual articles to be made freely available online immediately upon payment of the submission fee These are known as hybrid Open Access journals To be eligible for funding in this category the publisher must plan to make in the next subscription year reductions to the institutional subscription prices based on the number of Open Access articles in those journals To date the only publishers that have done this are Oxford University Press which has reduced subscription fees for the hybrid journals in its Oxford Open program and the American Institute of Physics which has done the same for its Author Select program Other publishers

    stake in the journal These measures ensure that the peer review process is not biased by the promise of income or lack of it The costs of Open Access fees range from about 500 to 3000 250 4000 US depending on the publisher Libraries can set up a fund to pay article processing fees for Open Access journals The fee based model has the advantages of being very transparent and of awakening researchers to the costs of the publishing system As noted by Stephen Pinfield reference below in the subscription based system there is a disconnect between researchers and the economic realities of the market pg 5 With article processing fees authors are aware of publication charges and able to draw comparisons between different journals and publishers Institutional memberships Another way of supporting Open Access journals is through institutional membership programmes Some journals that charge article processing fees offer institutional memberships which then reduce or eliminate the per article fees they charge The fee structures for institutional memberships vary from publisher to publisher but fees are usually tiered based on the size of the institution with smaller institutions paying less than large ones Hybrid journals Some subscription based journals also offer Open Access options to authors This generally involves authors paying an Open Access fee after which the journal will make the article freely available The SHERPA ROMEO site maintains a list of such hybrid publishers paid Open Access options and the associated pricing One of the issues with the hybrid model is that institutions that pay Open Access fees for hybrid journals are also still paying subscription fees for those same journals to the publishers in essence paying twice for the same content A few publishers such as Oxford University Press do offer discounts on their subscription charges in

  • Funders policy on Open Access
    What should be self archived Funders usually specify that the completed final version of the manuscript once the peer review process has taken place and the author has made all the corrections and revisions should be deposited in an Open Access repository This ensures that users are able to access the final form of the article though it will not have the layout and mark up provided by the publisher Nonetheless for would be users who do not have access to the article through a journal subscription the author s final version is perfectly adequate Indeed from the perspective of research progress the author s final manuscript is far better than the published paper This is because the publisher generally provides the author with a PDF file of the article and this format is extremely difficult to re use New technologies for mining texts for meaning and facts so called semantic computer technologies work much better on articles in native file formats such as Word Research funders are eager that research findings are used as effectively as possible and so some are now including provision in their Open Access policies to make sure that self archived articles are in a file format that enables re use through these technological means Where authors should self archive their articles Funders may specify a particular repository for the articles as the Wellcome Trust and the NIH do In these cases they specify that authors must deposit their articles in PubMed Central or UK PubMed Central the UK service Some funders have repositories of their own Others in fact most stipulate that authors must self archive their articles into an Open Access repository but do not specify which This allows the author to choose and in the vast majority of cases the author s

  • Policies on Open Access from institutions and funders
    grants from the public purse there is an obligation to do what they can to maximise the value that will eventually accrue to the taxpayer from the work In the case of charities supporting research into particular issues they wish to ensure that their funding is used as effectively as possible to resolve those issues It has long been known that only mandatory policies are truly effective in gathering the body of Open Access research that is wanted A mandatory policy not only makes clear to researchers what is required and why but also serves to raise awareness about Open Access and the reasons why it is desirable Compliance rates with mandatory policies are much much higher than policies that simply advise authors about the issues and encourage them to make their work Open Access This is why new Open Access policies are almost all mandatory As a result the proportion of the world s research outputs that is freely available to all is growing The pages on institutional policies and funder policies describe in more detail the sort of requirements that are made of authors and give more detail on different types of policy Interestingly over recent times beginning with Harvard s Faculty of Arts Sciences early in 2008 individual faculties schools and departments in universities have been voting in their own mandatory Open Access policies many unanimously The list of existing Open Access policies can be found here along with policy details in most cases Authors are sometimes surprised at such moves considering that being obliged to make their work Open Access is somehow in contradiction to the cherished principle academic freedom This article by Professor Stuart Shieber of Harvard University discusses the issues See also Institutional policies on Open Access Funder policies on Open Access Funder policies
