"Open Access Monographs in the UK: A Data Analysis"

Posted in E-Books, Open Access, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Books on October 9th, 2019

Universities UK has released Open Access Monographs in the UK: A Data Analysis.

Here's an excerpt:

In 2018, fullstopp GmbH was commissioned to carry out an analysis of open access books. Specifically, we were asked to capture the specific challenges and barriers (perceived and real) from a range of stakeholders including (but not limited to): learned societies and subject associations, Pro-Vice-Chancellors (Research), research librarians, publishers (commercial, new university presses and academic-led presses) and funding organisations. In response to these concerns, we were also asked to (where possible) address these challenges by conducting a quantitative analysis of data available from publishers, funding organisations and HEIs (including libraries).

"Ebook Rate of Use in OhioLINK: A Ten-Year Study of Local and Consortial Use of Publisher Packages in Ohio"

Posted in E-Books, Publishing, Research Libraries, Scholarly Books on September 6th, 2019

Amy Fry has published "Ebook Rate of Use in OhioLINK: A Ten-Year Study of Local and Consortial Use of Publisher Packages in Ohio" in College & Research Libraries.

Here's an excerpt:

This paper examines publisher ebook package use in the OhioLINK academic library consortium between 2007 and 2017 alongside use of the same titles at individual institutions. With nearly 100,000 titles acquired over 10+ years from three publishers and available to users at more than 90 institutions, the picture of ebook use this study presents is unique in its breadth and scope. The data show that, consortiumwide, close to 100 percent of titles were used, with their initial use overwhelmingly taking place within one year of their publication date. At individual institutions, the rate of use was far lower and never exceeded the rate of use of print books at the author’s own institution. These findings have important implications for how institutions approach ebook acquisition to maximize rate of use of ebook collections.
