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

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].

"Pay What You Want as a Pricing Model for Open Access Publishing?"

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.

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

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.

"’Let the Community Decide’? The Vision and Reality of Soundness-Only Peer Review in Open-Access Mega-Journals"

Valerie Spezi et al. have published "'Let the Community Decide'? The Vision and Reality of Soundness-Only Peer Review in Open-Access Mega-Journals" in the Journal of Documentation.

Here's an excerpt:

Findings suggest that in reality criteria beyond technical or scientific soundness can and do influence editorial decisions. Deviations from the original OAMJ model are both publisher supported (in the form of requirements for an article to be “worthy” of publication) and practice driven (in the form of some reviewers and editors applying traditional peer review criteria to OAMJ submissions). Also publishers believe post-publication evaluation of novelty, significance and relevance remains problematic.

"Who Owns Digital Science?"

Roger C. Schonfeld has published "Who Owns Digital Science?" in The Scholarly Kitchen.

Here's an excerpt:

Other publishers—and libraries and universities—that are working in collaboration with, or customers of, various Digital Science businesses might wish to give greater attention to the implications. First, Digital Science itself may soon become an operating unit of Springer Nature. Second, this could well yield changes to the Digital Science strategy, if its current model as an investor were to give way to the operating integrations that have been a hallmark of Elsevier’s strategy.
