        Peter Suber has released "Harvard's 11 Announcements for Open Access Week 2014."

        Here's an excerpt:

        Harvard has taken a series of new steps to support open access to research. The best evidence lies in the 11 announcements released by the Office for Scholarly Communication for Open Access Week 2014 (October 20-24). Here's a brief recap of the series. . . .

        The Berkman Center for Internet & Society announced that the Center's faculty directors and staff have adopted an open-access policy. In a landmark unanimous vote, the Berkman Center became the first research center at Harvard to adopt an open-access policy, and the first to extend the scope of Harvard's open-access policies beyond the faculty.

            "The ‘Total Cost of Publication’ in a Hybrid Open-Access Environment: Institutional Approaches to Funding Journal Article-Processing Charges in Combination with Subscriptions"

            Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on October 27th, 2014

            S. Pinfield et al. have self-archived "The 'Total Cost of Publication' in a Hybrid Open-Access Environment: Institutional Approaches to Funding Journal Article-Processing Charges in Combination with Subscriptions."

            Here's an excerpt:

            This study analyses data from 23 UK institutions covering the period 2007 to 2014 modelling the total cost of publication (TCP). It shows a clear rise in centrally-managed APC payments from 2012 onwards, with payments projected to increase further. As well as evidencing the growing availability and acceptance of OA publishing, these trends reflect particular UK policy developments and funding arrangements intended to accelerate the move towards OA publishing ('Gold' OA). Whilst the mean value of APCs has been relatively stable, there was considerable variation in APC prices paid by institutions since 2007. In particular, 'hybrid' subscription/OA journals were consistently more expensive than fully-OA journals. Most APCs were paid to large 'traditional' commercial publishers who also received considerable subscription income. New administrative costs reported by institutions varied considerably. The total cost of publication modelling shows that APCs are now a significant part of the TCP for academic institutions, in 2013 already constituting an average of 10% of the TCP (excluding administrative costs).

              All Harvard Schools Now Have Open Access Policies

              Posted in Open Access, Open Science, Publishing, Self-Archiving on October 24th, 2014

              With the adoption of an open access policy in June by the Harvard Medical School, all Harvard schools now have open access policies.

              Here’s an excerpt from the announcement:

              Harvard Medical School adopted an open-access policy on June 18, 2014, by a unanimous vote of the Faculty Council. The new policy covers both "quad"-based and clinical faculty. Now all Harvard schools have open-access policies.

              Like the other Harvard policies, the Medical School policy insures that faculty members automatically retain a license to share their research papers freely through DASH (Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard), the University’s open-access repository. Faculty also have the option to waive this license for any article, preserving their freedom to submit new work to the journals of their choice. When faculty write articles covered by the Medical School policy and the policy at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), they need only deposit once to comply with both.
