Investing in Open Access, Innovating in Open Science – the NPG and UC Perspectives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will use the negotiations between the University of California and Nature Publishing Group as a springboard to look at the changes taking place in scholarly communication in the last decade.  The well-publicized dispute between UC and NPG in 2010 was one inflection point among many in the evolution of approaches to scholarly communication on the part of both libraries and publishers.  A review of NPG’s evolution over the past ten years will in part serve as an update to Annette Thomas’ keynote presentation at last year’s Charleston conference by describing NPG’s efforts to explore questions of impact, value, access and reuse, open access (OA), social tools and text and data mining, culminating with the recent investment in Frontiers Media, a community-driven, open-access publisher with novel approaches to peer review and networking. The University of California has similarly long been engaged in driving change in scholarly communication, including the development of its eScholarship publishing and repository platform, tools for data management and curation, efforts to leverage licensing relationships with publishers to effect transformation, and perhaps most importantly, the passionate engagement of its faculty in fostering new modes of scholarly publishing and access, culminating in the recent adoption of a systemwide faculty open access policy. Topics will include: measures of impact; the relevance of green and gold OA policies and experiences of introducing ‘hybrid’ OA options; Creative Commons licensing and CC-BY uptake; data management and curation; and licensing and services for text and data mining including linked data. The session will also provide insights into how both libraries and publishers are creating future opportunities for science and scientists and contributing to open scholarship. The objective of the session is to illustrate how all of these players are responding to new dynamics in scholarly publishing, with a goal of sustainability on the one hand, and innovation on the other. Audience participation will be encouraged throughout, with a full and frank discussion about the realities of library-publisher relations. Led by David Hoole and Ivy Anderson, who have worked at their respective organizations throughout this transformative decade.
