"Journal Flipping or a Public Open Access Infrastructure? What Kind of Open Access Future Do We Want?"

Posted in Digital Repositories, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on October 27th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Tony Ross-Hellauer and Benedikt Fecher have published "Journal Flipping or a Public Open Access Infrastructure? What Kind of Open Access Future Do We Want?" in LSE Impact of Social Sciences.

Here's an excerpt:

Open access (OA) is advocated by science funders, policymakers and researchers alike. It will most likely be the default way of publishing in the not-so-distant future. Nonetheless, the dominant approach to achieve OA at the moment—journal flipping—could have adverse long-term effects for science. To try to stir debate, we here present two dichotomic scenarios for open access in 20 years' time [journal flipping vs. a public open access infrastructure].

Martin Spann et al. have published "Pay What You Want as a Pricing Model for Open Access Publishing?" in Communications of the ACM.

Here's an excerpt:

The observed payments from our experiment together with the preliminary results from other experiments (that is, Cogent OA) indicate that PWYW may work in the context of open access publishing. The results suggest that a substantial fraction of authors do pay APCs voluntarily, in some cases even more than regularly asked.

"Building a Culture of Data Sharing: Policy Design and Implementation for Research Data Management in Development Research"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Open Access, Open Science, Publishing on October 26th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Cameron Neylon has published "Building a Culture of Data Sharing: Policy Design and Implementation for Research Data Management in Development Research" in Research Ideas and Outcomes.

Here's an excerpt:

The project had two core findings. First that the shift from an aim of changing behaviour, to changing culture, has both subtle and profound implications for policy design and implementation. A particular finding is that the single point of contact that many data management and sharing policies create where a Data Management Plan is required at grant submission but then not further utilised is at best neutral and likely counter productive in supporting change in researcher culture.
