cIRcle: make your research more visible to the world Hilde Colenbrander Institutional Repository Coordinator, UBC Library  UBC’s Information Repository  Open Access Day, October 14, 2008  cIRcle: UBC’s Information Repository  UBC’s Information Repository  An open access repository for published and unpublished materials Goal: To showcase UBC’s intellectual output May be freely used by anyone, provided creators are acknowledged and properly cited Launched spring 2008 cIRcle home page  2  What does ‘openly accessible’ mean? Open access literature is:   Digital information made freely available to anyone on the web  Refers particularly to peer reviewed research articles and their UBC’s Information Repository    preprints Open Access literature is freely available; not free to produce  A response to exponential journal price increases:   1986-2006: journal expenditures in ARL libraries increased by 321%  3  Open Access repositories ROAR (Registry of Open Access Repositories) currently lists 1157 repositories around the world UBC’s Information Repository   Australia: 37  Brazil: 60  Canada: 46  Germany: 94  India: 34  South Africa: 11  UK: 125  USA: 238  4  Why contribute to cIRcle?  UBC’s Information Repository  45% to 336% increases in citations for open access literature (depending on discipline) Materials are easy to find (metadata adds value):   via Google, Google Scholar, Yahoo, etc.  via special content harvesters, e.g.  Exchange of scholarly information with colleagues; availability to scholars without journal subscriptions Permanent URLs Permanent preservation Granting agency mandates  5  What about copyright? For materials deposited in cIRcle:  UBC’s Information Repository   cIRcle requires a non-exclusive license to distribute  Copyright owner retains copyright  If you are not the copyright owner, you need permission from the copyright owner/publisher to deposit in cIRcle   Note: Publishers’ Copyright Transfer Agreements/ Publication Agreements are critical!  6  What can be contributed to cIRcle? Digital materials:  UBC’s Information Repository   Research papers (pre- or postprints, or published versions)  Conference and workshop papers  Theses and dissertations, outstanding student projects  Unpublished reports and working papers  Books, chapters and sections  Datasets  Learning Objects  Multimedia and audio-visual materials  Software  University administrative documents  7  Who benefits from open access?

It encourages the unrestricted sharing of research results with everyone, everywhere, for the advancement and enjoyment of science and society.” (From: )  Origins of OA The BBB's: • Budapest Open Access Initiative 2002 • Bethesda 2003 • Berlin Declaration 2003 Locations where a number of research entities came together to declare their support for open access and first defined open access. • Peter Suber’s OA blog:  Definition of open access really comes from the BBB's: Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions  The Budapest statement puts it this way:  Budapest definition of Open Access: "By ‘open access’ to this literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited." See: Peter Suber’s Open Access Website:  Background In 2005 “The Open Access Movement” John Willinsky’s The Access Principle The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship: ault.asp?ttype=2&tid=10611  The First Journal 1665  •  a means to enable researchers to share their work quickly & widely.  •  Established a system of priority amongst researchers investigating the same problem – later became known as peer review.  •  No financial remuneration awarded to authors. Authors received intrinsic rewards from publishing  •  Scholarly journals evolved. Still important for wide dissemination, notice for their work, peer review, not financial reward.  The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society  Journals evolved - new publishing models - subscription models  A researcher discovers the perfect article. She clicks on full text and gets…  …she gets what she wants but now wants to post on her website/blog  & share with a colleague/fellow student at another institution. Is she permitted do this?  Is the author?  Access to scholarship in the digital age  Print vs. Online (Copyright vs Licensing) Uses Permitted under Copyright  Conditions Introduced by a License  • •  •  •  •  Right to lend to the public Right to quote and excerpt for commentary and criticism Right to make and distribute copies under fair dealing and for local and remote library patrons via interlibrary loan Character of use governed by fair dealing principles  • •  • •  “Lending" of the materials may be tightly controlled; only "users" as defined in the license may use them Prohibitions against copying and/or nondisclosure requirements may require permission before quoting or excerpting License may prohibit distributing copies outside the institution; may eliminate public loans; may eliminate loaning to another institution. Type of use may be restricted, for example, academic or non-commercial use only No right to transmit electronically, therefore no use in distance learning  Digital Rights Management (DRM) Further control? •  DRM attempts to promote authorized use of a work, in part by precluding the possibility of copyright infringement.  •  Contains various technological components: encryption, a surveillance mechanism, license management functionality and technological protection measures (TPMs).  •  Promises copyright owners a high degree of control over how works are accessed and used, even after the works are disseminated to users.  •  Other motivations? (Ie. DRM can potentially allow copyright owners to require users to pay for each access and use.)  •  Fear that this kind of protection will further erode permissions given to the public - fair dealing  Other Concerns • Privacy issues: DRM's surveillance capabilities can gather info. about users habits. (reading,viewing,listening) • DRM systems can limit public access to works that are freely available in the public domain, • Deny users the ability to make fair uses of copyright works (for research and other purposes), • Jeopardize the long-term preservation of information (as technologies become obsolete)  The Traditional Access Model: Moved from ownership (print) to Licensing model (online): Access Permissions (Digital Rights Management (DRM) Subscription costs for access  … Restrictive – Copyright/licensing Permission barriers - too restrictive – Too costly – therefore restrictive – Existing models do not encourage free flow of information sharing.  Online Paradox Web removed barriers  But more barriers appeared for use of material • license restrictions determined use,  by providing global,accessible, reliable, affordable network  • loss of fair dealing provisions for online content, • prohibitive costs In 2007 … JAMA in print $550.00; JAMA online $8000.00 US – (with 5% + increase per year)  Average serial price up 227%  Average book price up 65% CPI up 57%  The Traditional Model How the lifecycle of scholarship is supported  Public granting agencies and universities fund research via tax dollars  Faculty member does the research, writes the article/book, and initially owns the copyright  Publishers require authors to sign over their copyright in return for publication   Faculty generally provide their work to the publisher for free: Articles, books, editorial board services, peer review services   Faculty often pay page charges to the publisher for article publication  Later, publishers may charge faculty reprint fees (after all, the publisher owns the copyright)   Publishers sell scholarly journal subscriptions/licenses to universities (via libraries)  The publishing industry is worth billions of dollars with huge profit margins (applies mostly to STM publishers) 16.1 billion in revenues in 2006; 5.8 billion (36%) earned by top 6: Elsevier, Kluwer Health, Springer, American Chemical Society, Wiley/Blackwell (merged in 2007)   Publishing in prestigious journals related to tenure & promotion  Citation rates related to tenure/promotion  Libraries provide access to and preserve content access is restricted to faculty, students, staff of UBC and frequently walk-in users  Challenging the traditional model of participating & accessing scholarship The Scholarly community – all those who support the lifecycle of scholarship (researchers, authors, editors, reviewers, publishers, funding bodies, university administrators, libraries, readers)  …are re-evaluating traditional models  Factors: • Costs: Massive escalation of journal subscription prices over past 2 decades – –  1986-2005 journal subscriptions for a typical research library increased by 227%. 1986-2002 number of books purchased by a typical research library decreased by 5% (for 1986-2002)  • Access to research information: – –  Existing publishing models restrict rather than encourage free flow of information. Concerns about public access to taxpayer-funded research  • Technological Advancement : –  The Internet & revolution in authoring and publishing technologies  Gave rise to the open access movement and the emergence of new models of scholarly communications and publishing.  Scholarship is changing: –  new innovations & technologies, standards, protocols, and formats to support change.  The emergence of new models of scholarly publishing Disciplinary Differences – Technological Advancement – Activism Position – ethical position; public access to information  Why Activism Position? • Research results are paid for twice over by public tax dollars: – Research grants/faculty salaries – Journal subscriptions • Access to research is restricted to institutions that can afford the journals • Public Access to information • Conflict of interest Eg. Smith R (2005) Medical Journals Are an Extension of the Marketing Arm of Pharmaceutical Companies. PLoS Med 2(5): e138 Published: May 17, 2005  Advocating Change  Pressure for change: • 132 PROVOSTS support Open Access: “If universities pay the salaries of researchers and provide them with labs, and the federal government provides those researchers with grants for their studies, why should those same universities feel they can’t afford to have access to research findings?”  • Researchers are putting pressure on Societies: (e.g. Royal Society members); PLoS’ Open letter:  • OA publications are more often cited:  Eysenbach G. Citation advantage of open access articles.

Through the democratizing power of digital technology and the Internet, we can place the tools of creation and distribution, communication and collaboration, teaching and learning into the hands of the common person  We refuse to accept a future of digital feudalism where we do not actually own the products we buy, but we are merely granted limited uses of them as long as we pay the rent. We believe that culture should be a two-way affair, about participation, not merely consumption. We will not be content to sit passively at the end of a one-way media tube. We will make, share, adapt, and promote open content. We will listen to free music, look at free art, watch free film, and read free books. All the while, we will contribute, discuss, annotate, critique, improve, improvise, remix, mutate, and add yet more ingredients into the free culture soup.  㻦㼒㼑㼗㼄㼆㼗㻃㻬㼑㼉㼒㼕㼐㼄㼗㼌㼒㼑 Joy Kirchner Project Manager, Scholarly Communications & Sciences Collections Librarian for Science (STM) Libraries (604) 827-3644  Introduction to Open Access presentation by Joy Kirchner is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.5 Canada License
