Academic publisher costs in Finland 2010-2015

Academic publisher costs in Finland 2010-2015, Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland and its Open Science and Research Initiative 2014-2017. http://openscience.fi/publisher_costs

It is rational to collect publisher costs all at once and in aggregate form, so that the benefits obtained would be as large as possible. Transparency of the subscription prices reveal the costs of the publishing model that is based on subscription payments. Author publication charges (APC) were not possible to survey for the present due to too eclectic practices, but it is estimated that in Finland they amount to a total of at least EUR 1 million per year. In the future also APCs will be surveyed more precisely.

Comparing Published Scientific Journal Articles to Their Pre-print Versions

Klein Martin, Broadwell Peter, Farb Sharon E. et Grappone Todd, « Comparing Published Scientific Journal Articles to Their Pre-print Versions », arXiv:1604.05363 [cs], 18 avril 2016. http://arxiv.org/abs/1604.05363

Academic publishers claim that they add value to scholarly communications by coordinating reviews and contributing and enhancing text during publication. These contributions come at a considerable cost: U.S. academic libraries paid $1.7 billion for serial subscriptions in 2008 alone. Library budgets, in contrast, are flat and not able to keep pace with serial price inflation. We have investigated the publishers’ value proposition by conducting a comparative study of pre-print papers and their final published counterparts. This comparison had two working assumptions: 1) if the publishers’ argument is valid, the text of a pre-print paper should vary measurably from its corresponding final published version, and 2) by applying standard similarity measures, we should be able to detect and quantify such differences. Our analysis revealed that the text contents of the scientific papers generally changed very little from their pre-print to final published versions. These findings contribute empirical indicators to discussions of the added value of commercial publishers and therefore should influence libraries’ economic decisions regarding access to scholarly publications.

The Costs of Publishing Monographs: Toward a Transparent Methodology

Nancy L. Maron. The Costs of Publishing Monographs: Toward a Transparent Methodology. Ithaka S+R. February 5, 2016. http://sr.ithaka.org/?p=276785

The University Press business model faces numerous challenges today, with revenues under pressure due to a host of factors, from the decline of bricks-and-mortar stores and shifting library purchase patterns to the still emerging distribution and revenue models made possible by digital books. Over the last few years, certain forces have emerged and intensified—federal mandates for Open Access, declining sales reach, and the desire of university presses to build a greater audience for scholarly works—encouraging university presses to seriously consider what it would take to make their scholarly monographs openly available. While there have been numerous efforts to understand the costs of publishing a scholarly monograph, this study is unique in that we worked with an advisory group of university press publishers to identify all of the cost components in scholarly monographic publishing and to work with a wide variety of university presses to calculate their costs of each of those components in a bottom-up fashion.

Dynamiques de l’Edition scientifique, de l’Industrie de l’Information, de la Documentation

Direction de l’information scientifique et technique. Dynamiques de l’Edition scientifique, de l’Industrie de l’Information, de la Documentation : un Agenda 2015 pour la science publique ouverte, Meudon – 4 et 5 Novembre 2014. http://www.cnrs.fr/dist/z-outils/documents/actescolloquesdessids.pdf

Ce Colloque est né à la demande des participants de la rencontre : « Innovation et gouvernance de l’IST » (CNRS, Meudon, les 18 et 19 mars 2014). Cette précédente rencontre avait conduit une centaine de représentants de tout l’ESR au constat d’une « hybridation » des usages accompagnant la publication scientifique numérique, hybridation qui atteint aussi bien les résultats publiés (données, articles-ouvrages, analyses) que les supports de publications et les démarches de partage des résultats (revues aux formes traditionnelles et nouvelles, plateformes opérant sous divers statuts…), dans un contexte où la pluralité des opérateurs va croissant (éditeurs nationaux, internationaux, académiques, industriels de l’information, éditeurs et opérateurs de l’Open Access…).
Le besoin d’une orchestration collective des changements en cours avait alors été exprimée : en réponse, ce colloque propose la mise en commun d’un « Agenda 2015 » pour la science en phase avec le riche Agenda National sur le numérique et les plateformes.

Challenges in Matching Dataset Citation Strings to Datasets in Social Science

Mathiak, Brigitte, Boland, Katarina. Challenges in Matching Dataset Citation Strings to Datasets in Social Science. D-Lib Magazine, January/February 2015, Volume 21, Number 1/2. DOI: http://www.dlib.org/dlib/january15/mathiak/01mathiak.html

Finding dataset citations in scientific publications to gain information on the usage of research data is an important step to increase visibility of data and to give datasets more weight in the scientific community. Unlike publication impact, which is readily measured by citation counts, dataset citation remains a great unknown. In recent work, we introduced an algorithm to find dataset citations in full text documents automatically, but, in fact, this is just half the road to travel. Once the citation string has been found, it has to be matched to the correct DOI. This is more complicated than it sounds. In social science, survey datasets are typically recorded in a much more fine-granular way than they are cited, differentiating between years, versions, samples, modes of the interview, countries, even questionnaire variants. At the same time, the actual citation strings typically ignore these details. This poses a number of challenges to the matching of citations strings to datasets. In this paper, we discuss these challenges in more detail and present our ideas on how to solve them using an ontology for research datasets.

Digitization, Internet publishing and the revival of scholarly monographs: An empirical study in India

Digitization, Internet publishing and the revival of scholarly monographs: An empirical study in India
by Rojers P. Joseph and Shishir K. Jha. First Monday, Volume 20, Number 1 – 5 January 2015. http://firstmonday.org/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/4932/4203. doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.5210/fm.v20i1.4932

This research shows the growing utility of internet-based digital models in reviving the crisis-stricken traditional print monograph publishing. The rising prices of scientific journals in the past three decades forced academic and research libraries to resort to cutbacks on monograph budgets. The declining sales to libraries and rising production costs led to a significant drop in global demand for print monographs, rendering monograph publishing financially unattractive. Combining the flexibility of digitized content with the global reach of the Internet, three emerging digital models — print on demand, bundled e-books, and e-consortia — are beginning to revamp the monograph publishing business.

Evaluating big deal journal bundles

Bergstrom Theodore C., Courant Paul N., McAfee R. Preston et Williams Michael A., 2014, « Evaluating big deal journal bundles », Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 16 juin 2014, p. 201403006. http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2014/06/11/1403006111.abstract

Large commercial publishers sell bundled online subscriptions to their entire list of academic journals at prices significantly lower than the sum of their á la carte prices. Bundle prices differ drastically between institutions, but they are not publicly posted. The data that we have collected enable us to compare the bundle prices charged by commercial publishers with those of nonprofit societies and to examine the types of price discrimination practiced by commercial and nonprofit journal publishers. This information is of interest to economists who study monopolist pricing, librarians interested in making efficient use of library budgets, and scholars who are interested in the availability of the work that they publish.

De l’Open data à l’Open research data : quelle(s) politique(s) pour les données de la recherche

Mémoire de fin d’étude du diplôme de conservateur de Rémi Gaillard (janvier 2014) portant sur l’ouverture des métadonnées de la recherche et du rôle que les bibliothécaires ont à jouer dans ce nouveau contexte documentaire, publié dans la bibliothèque numérique du site de l’ENSSIB.

Le mouvement du libre-accès aux publications scientifiques s’élargit de plus en plus aux données de la recherche. Des initiatives pour garantir l’accessibilité et la complète réutilisation de ces données sont prises par une grande diversité d’acteurs – États, agences de financement de la recherche, éditeurs, communautés scientifiques. L’ouverture des données de la recherche est rendue possible par la définition de politiques incitatives ou contraignantes, l’adoption de solutions juridiques et techniques, mais repose avant tout sur de bonnes pratiques de gestion des données. Tandis que la France s’insère progressivement dans la dynamique de l’Open research data, les universités sont appelées à définir leur politique de données. Les bibliothécaires ont un rôle majeur à jouer dans l’élaboration de ces politiques, peuvent contribuer à identifier les besoins des chercheurs et les assister sur le volet « métadonnées ». Aussi, la question de l’ouverture des données de recherche offre une opportunité unique à ces professionnels de la documentation : celle de remodeler, à l’échelle des établissements de recherche, leur(s) lien(s) avec la communauté des chercheurs.

Open access / Peter Suber

Open access [Ressource électronique] / Peter Suber. – Cambridge, Mass. ; London : The MIT Press, cop. 2012.(MIT Press essential knowledge series). 

Ouvrage en libre-accès publié sur le site du MIT Press. http://mitpress.mit.edu/books/open-access

The Internet lets us share perfect copies of our work with a worldwide audience at virtually no cost. We take advantage of this revolutionary opportunity when we make our work “open access”: digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Open access is made possible by the Internet and copyright-holder consent, and many authors, musicians, filmmakers, and other creators who depend on royalties are understandably unwilling to give their consent. But for 350 years, scholars have written peer-reviewed journal articles for impact, not for money, and are free to consent to open access without losing revenue.

In this concise introduction, Peter Suber tells us what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Distilling a decade of Suber’s influential writing and thinking about open access, this is the indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers.

Danish Research Library Association E-book barometer 2012

Rapport publié par la Danish Research Library Association, le 21 mai 2013 http://dfdf.dk/index.php/rapporter3/cat_view/49-2013

Rapport téléchargeable ici : http://dfdf.dk/index.php/rapporter3/doc_download/134-danish-research-library-association-e-book-barometer-2012

« The e-book market is still growing – compared to both economy and usage statistics – and the growth is expected to continue, though it is hard to quantify. The growth depends on various pa-rameters, such as users’ demands, publishers’ supply and price policy, as well as a multitude of technical and license challenges.
There are more e-book publishers than ever, probably because more publishers now offer the possi-bility to buy single titles and not only book packages.
Several libraries experiment with Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) in various individually adjusted solutions, and budgets assigned to this purpose have increased.
The attitude to e-book reader devices has not changed in the past year – they are purchased primar-ily for internal use only and not for loans.
In addition to the increased growth, the general view is that e-books will provide improved service, particularly at libraries which serve geographically scattered localities. The gradual change from printed books to e-books is expected to release more space and resources from process functions to communication. On the other hand, there is a risk that budgets will be hollowed out, particularly in connection with e-reolen and the reduced possibility for interlibrary loan (ILL). »
