OpenEdition and the international structuring of Open Access

On the importance of international organisations in the structuring of the Open Access movement, as part of reflections on the articulation between academic publishing and Open Access.

The Open Access movement is a recent development in the history of academic publication. It is mainly represented by several international organisations working outside the national institutional scope, enabling issues to be tackled on more suitable scales. Whether associations or networks, these organisations help define the Open Access landscape by debating its issues, laying down directions of evolution, and by influencing public policy. 
To encourage concerted approaches among international acts within collective organisations, OpenEdition is a member of several Open Access associations, especially:

Within the framework of the Budapest conference, we contributed to the  Budapest Open Access Initiative Declaration as well as to its French translation.
 We also took part in discussions have led to the creation of the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB);

OpenEdition Books, our future platform dedicated to books, will have a major contribution to make to this directory.
 Many university presses have already joined us, and we have also formed alliances with other university presses deeply involved in Open Access in a number of countries: the United Kingdom, Germany, Hungary, the USA, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands, among others. We shall be informing you of new additions to the OpenEdition Books catalogue in a few months time.

Dariah, coordinating the digital humanities at the European level

The DARIAH logo

The European cyber-infrastructure Dariah (Digital Research Infrastructure for Arts and Humanities), coordinated by the TGE Adonis in France, is under construction, and OpenEdition is actively involved. The aim of the project is to construct a digital infrastructure that promotes, develops and supports research in all humanities disciplines. Dariah will offer tools and services to facilitate research activity in all dimensions: the collection, analysis, production or conservation of data, in the broadest possible sense. The tools and services will be based on IT and communication technologies and on norms and standards enacted by international organisations such as W3C, the Consortium TEI, etc.

The First Stone

Last October, a first stage was completed when France officially submitted its project to the European Commission. Dariah will be governed as an ERIC, European Research Infrastructure Consortium, and its members will not be institutions but States or international organisations. Dariah-ERIC should officially be created next spring. The project will be co-run by Germany, Holland and France. Austria, Denmark, Ireland and Slovenia are also set to become partners, as well as Italian and Swiss institutions.

A point of reference

To OpenEdition, this type of European level infrastructure is essential. The creation of Dariah demonstrates European awareness of the need to step up development and application of new technologies in the humanities and social sciences. Beyond the provision of huge quantities of data, and new tools and exploitation services for this data, Dariah will also become a point of reference at all levels of the academic community, among researchers, politicians, and libraries.

Brussels declaration on open access to Belgian publicly funded research (October 22nd 2012)

We publish here the recent Brussels declaration on Open Access.

‘Open Access to Excellence in Research”

Representatives of Ministers Magnette (Federal Science Policy), Minister Nollet (FWB) and Minister Lieten (EWI), have endorsed the “Brussels Declaration on Open Access”. You can find the full text here.

 

BRUSSELS DECLARATION ON OPEN ACCESS

to Belgian publicly funded research

By signing the Berlin Declaration on Open Access in 2007, Belgian research institutions and research funders agreed to support the dissemination of publicly funded scientific  research through Open Access.
Open Access to scientific research offers stakeholders an  alternative for traditional ways of disseminating scientific research results, which do not always meet the demands of  stakeholders.
Free, online access is the most effective way to ensure widespread and democratic consultation and usage of publicly funded research results. During the last years,
research results available in Open Access gained considerable visibility internationally, which proves beneficial to individual authors, institutions and funders.

Open Access can be achieved in two nonexclusive ways, each having their own merits: by deposition in a digital open access repository or through Open Access publishing.
Open Access policies do not affect the author’s freedom to choose where to publish, nor do they interfere with patenting or other forms of commercial exploitation.

Brussels Declaration signatories commit to maximizing free availability of publicly funded research results, by :
- actively informing researchers about Open Access
- asking researchers to make the published output of their publicly funded research freely available in Open Access, either through a publication in an Open Access journal or by depositing a peer reviewed version of their paper in an Open Access repository at hand, preferably immediately and in any case no later than 6 or 12 months (depending on the  scientific discipline) after the date of publication

- investigating the possibility of public authorities covering the costs of Open Access publishing
- supporting the creation and the maintenance of Open Access repositories and other innovative digital infrastructures for facilitating scientific communication
- investigating possibilities and new opportunities in the broad Open Access field, all in frequent collaboration with relevant stakeholders, considering Open Access to scientific publications a forerunner of new initiatives in the ‘Open Data’ and ‘Open Science’ areas.
By actively stimulating free and online access to scientific research results, *signatories* subscribe to a principle that has acquired broad support on international level. This
support has been demonstrated both by recent statements by top researchers, and by Open Access policies launched by influential funders such as the European Commission,
the World Bank, CERN, the UK Wellcome Trust and the US National Institutes of Health.
By signing this declaration *signatories* declare Open Access to be the default infrastructure for dissemination of Belgian scientific research results and express their
determination to be amongst the frontrunners in this evolution, both at European and worldwide level.

Signed on October 22nd 2012, in Brussels

The new Calenda is online!

To celebrate the publication of the 20,000th event announcements on Calenda, the OpenEdition  is  pleased to announce the launch of the multilingual version of the humanities and social sciences calendar: calenda.org.
The sheer volume and variety of announcements required a more detailed, yet more ergonomic interface for a more in-depth use of the calendar. The calendar has now published more than 2000 announcements in English and 300 in Portuguese, hence a multilingual interface was required. The future of OpenEdition in general and Calenda in particular, lies in this international dimension.

Calenda’s main improvements to functioning include:

  • Easier browsing of announcements via a search engine using both criteria and facets;
  • The multilingualism of the platfrom has been refined with the implementation of linguistic browsing (French, English and Portuguese, with German and Spanish soon to follow);
  • Announcement documentation is now enhanced with automatic geolocalisation and language indications.

During the weeks to come, we will be presenting these functions in more detail as well as other news of the site in posts published.

Calenda is an OpenEdition platform (Revues.org, Hypotheses, Calenda and OpenEdition Books), with its own Academic Committee (http://calenda.org/about). Calenda has been developed by the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (UMS 3287 – CNRS, Université d’Aix-Marseille, EHESS, Université d’Avignon). The Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian is co-financing the development of the Portuguese-speaking version of Calenda in partnership with Cléo and the Centro em Rede de Investigação em Antropologia (CRIA, Portugal).

 

Revues.org journals in DOAJ Content

In a previous post last May, we wrote about DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journal)  labelling for the Revues.org platform’s new journals. As well as this labelling, the DOAJ now offers the chance to search the metadata (author, title, abstract, keywords, etc) of articles in labelled journals from its own site. This new service is called DOAJ Content.
For several months, the OpenEdition team has supplied the DOAJ with the information necessary for implementing DOAJ Content for its journals. Search fields enable users to search titles and authors but also through article abstracts. Once the search is complete and the article found, a link connects to the full text of the article. The link for the journal
Strenæ. Recherches sur les Livres et Objets Culturels de l’Enfance, for example, referenced by DOAJ Content is: http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=openurl&issn=21099081&genre=journal&uiLanguage=en
Seventy-four journals on our platform can now be searched using this tool. Eventually, all 100 journals on the platform will be referenced by DOAJ Content. DOAJ referencing enhances journals’ visibility and is a guarantee that academic standards have been respected by publishing teams. It is also a sign of our commitment to the DOAJ and more
generally in the development of Open Access.

OpenEdition Academic Committee’s statement on Open Access

Within the framework of the Assises de l’enseignement supérieur et de la recherche, the OpenEdition Academic Committee at the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing wishes to draw the French government’s attention to the issue of Open Access in academic literature.

Open Access benefits all

It is our firm belief that Open Access to academic research results represents a huge progress for society as a whole. Open Access is a highly effective and fair system as it facilitates access to research results for both researchers and lay people the world over. The direct benefits for academic progress, knowledge and society are plain to see. In the humanities and social sciences, comprising a range of disciplines which contribute to our understanding of the complex societies in which we live, Open Access to research results is also essential, for the development of our societies and for the cultural enhancement of all. Open Access also encourages the influence of research beyond national and disciplinary boundaries. Finally, as most research is funded by public money, it is necessary that this collective investment can be made public as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

The Progress of Open Access

The European Union has understood these issues and has undertaken to promote Open Access, which it considers a major asset for continent-wide innovation and, thus, as a lever for improving the efficiency of its investments in the research sector. It supports two approaches: the green road, represented by HAL in France, the system of open archives where researchers deposit their works in full text and make them accessible to all. This solution has enabled thousands of articles in all disciplines to be made available on Open Access. We too support this approach. However, it cannot be the only strategy to be developed.

The second approach is the gold road. Following the Finch report, the United Kingdom has decided to invest massively in this approach. Once, Open Access Gold simply referred to publications – journals and books – published on Open Access. Gradually this definition has altered and now refers to the fast developing “author-pay” business model, where authors, research centres or their financing bodies meet publication costs (varying from $1000-$5000/article). This mechanism has become widespread in certain disciplines, but we do not believe it is the most conducive to the progress of academic knowledge.

  • It ties ability to publish to the financial capabilities of researchers, their laboratories or establishments;
  • The mechanism itself incites publishers to increase the number of publications, whereas, traditionally, their mission and business model was based on choice and the selection of the best articles or books;
  • The editorial ecosystem ultimately depends on a relationship between the author, or financing institution, and the publisher which is too exclusive. The readership and their representatives, especially libraries, who traditionally make selections from a publisher’s range, are marginalised.

We believe in a third road for Open Access. The platinum road creates a form of Open Access publishing that enables authors to publish and readers to read without financial obstacles. The various existing modes to finance such a model are listed in the Open Access Directory. We favour a hybrid model, the Freemium model, where texts are Open Access but a collection of value-added services may be purchased. It is to this end that, in 2011, OpenEdition launched OpenEdition Freemium for journals, and late 2012, launched a Freemium book service (OpenEdition Books). Readers, publishers, and libraries have welcomed the proposal, and initiatives based on the same principle, but with different modus operandi, have also emerged, proof that the idea is catching on. The Freemium model is at the heart of the OpenEdition future investment project selected by the French government for funding for the next eight years to come.

Opening of Weber 2.0, the Max Weber Foundation research blog platform

Weber 2.0 is the new scholarly blog platform of the Max Weber Foundation – German Humanities Institute Abroad and its institutes and partners. The platform is operated in conjunction with OpenEdition, under the umbrella of Hypotheses and in close cooperation with the German-language Hypotheses platform, which was initiated in 2011 by DHI Paris.

The goal is to create a network by connecting scholars at the institutes  abroad and in the host countries to each other as well as to the scientific communities in Germany by providing them with new, up-to-date forums for communication, collaboration and presentation of their research.

The Max Weber Foundation is making a commitment to creating a sustainable virtual infrastructure for professional communication in the humanities, which enables the potential for virtual collaboration, open distribution of information and the processing of knowledge to be fully realized.

This opens up new possibilities, especially for the international exchange of knowledge. The promotion of transnational, comparative humanities research is a characteristic of the Max Weber Foundation, and is what this platform is fundamentally about. The aim is to stimulate transnational dialogue on various topics, and active networking among stakeholders across borders. This way, scientific discourse and ideas from other countries can be taught in Germany and vice versa.

***

Hypotheses research blogs platform is now organized in several linguistic subdivisions corresponding to Spanish-, German- and French-speaking bloggers’ communities. Other platforms, operated and hosted by Hypotheses, but with their own scientific and editorial management, have been created in the last few months, i.e. L’intelligence du monde. Le portail de carnets de recherche de l’Institut français.

If your university, research centre or academic organization wishes to open its own platform with Hypotheses, feel free to contact us: contact@openedition.org

 

Five new journals on OpenEdition
