Munin 2018 Day 1 through the eyes of @LuytenBram @atmire by Mind Map: Munin 2018 Day 1 through the eyes of @LuytenBram @atmire

1. Kenneth Ruud

1.1. Univ strategy 2009-2013

1.1.1. OA should be preferred dissemination

1.1.2. OA policy approved by board in 2010

1.2. 2017 UiT status

1.2.1. Gold OA ~20%

1.2.2. Total OA ~60%

1.2.3. Non-gold OA overtook gold OA

1.2.4. Big shift between 2016 and 2017 as funders threatened to withhold funding in case of non compliance

1.3. Implementing DORA

1.3.1. Main 2 things Being evaluated by the quality of work you have done, not the publication channel you selected We should look more broadly at different types of contribution to science Look at the WHOLE researcher's contribution In that sense, it's not controversial to sign this declaration.

1.3.2. 3 institutions in Norway who have signed it Research council of Norway has ALSO signed it. Key that the funder is on board.

1.3.3. What does it take? Hiring processes DORA statements included both in policy as well as in announcements of positions 4 documents to change Evaluation of PhD theses In Norway: pass or no pass, no grading Distribution of prizes and research funding Evaluations of project proposals Change texts of announcements of prizes and research funding instruments Again, work upstream with external funders and their announcements as well. Sabbaticals Potentially as often as every 5th year People need to qualify for this, by getting a minimum of publication points. We need to find other measures to qualify for sabbaticals.

1.3.4. The Norwegian publication indicator Evaluation on quality of all possible channels of dissemination. Some journals ranked as of "higher" quality as others - a "level 2" channel. For example, recognition of a journal as the "best" in its field. Still problematic with DORA, because this is exactly judging the venue where you publish and not the quality of what you publish This indicator was never meant as an instrument to evaluate individuals. But a tool to distribute funding between INSTITUTIONS Leads to a definition of publication "points" for an article Basically a national assessment replacing and decoupled of the impact factor. Question: Is this based on an expert committee? Is it possible to compare this to other countries Answer: one of the basic principles is that level 2 journals should only account for 20% of the output. So if more publications get into these level 2 journals, the selection will become stricter. In some fields, there is a very strong correlation with impact factor BUT not in others. Other countries who adopt the indicator basically copy the lists, and don't do their own entire effort of establishing these committees etc.

1.3.5. We can change all the paperwork, but how do we change CULTURE?

1.3.6. TODO Still need to assess which other research work than scientific articles alone We need to be more explicit and specific here. Follow work currently ongoing in EUA Need to get funders, also on EU levels, need to be on board

1.3.7. Take home messages Implementing DORA is easier than implementing OA You can not hope for OA transformation without adoption of DORA, or something similar DORA implements what researchers want, but perhaps do not comply with in practice Basing ourselves on proxies of quality is BAD PRACTICE

1.4. Question: Evaluation processes are so different across disciplines. In History we have always been looking at quality

1.4.1. If you want to know how to implement DORA, learn from the humanities

1.5. Question: is it difficult to advocate for DORA?

1.5.1. It's easier than the switch to open access because DORA is more straightforward what people want.

2. Victoria Tsoukala

2.1. Open Science, Excellent Science

2.2. European Commission

2.2.1. EU Legislation

2.2.2. legislate with other community institutions, like the parliament, the council

2.3.3. More transparency in the system

2.3.4. ...

2.4. How do we support open science?

2.4.1. Funding programmes requirements

2.4.2. 2012 recommendation on scientific information Often we can only RECOMMEND to member states but rely on member states for actual implementation and enforcement

2.4.3. 2016 council conclusions

2.4.4. Stakeholders and Expertise Open Science policy platform

Change of current processes and habits. 6 action lines. Launch last week in Vienna Architecture Data Services Access & Interface Rules Governance

2.5.3. Altmetrics

2.5.4. Future of scholarly communications

2.5.5. Reward systems

2.5.6. ...

2.5.7. 2018 Data Package PSI Directive revision Data produced by publicly funded research should be open. Re-use of research data will be free The feedback of the parliament on this has been very good. To be seen how this will be transposed in member state laws. Draft guidance on private sector data sharing in B2B and B2C contexts 2018 revised recommendation on access and preservation of scientific information Fine-tuning of the initial recommendation, making it even a stronger instrument

2.6. The Open Research Europe Publishing Platform (ORE)

2.6.1. Non-award for this RFP, new procedure being launched very soon. In the coming weeks.

2.6.2. Commission is committed on providing such a platform, so it's going to happen

2.6.3. Help H2020 beneficiaries to comply with the strict OA mandate ... at NO COST TO THEM

2.6.4. Improve uptake of OA in H2020 We're close to 70% but want to get to 100%

2.7.1. Stronger OA instrument

2.7.2. Status quo: trilogue on regulation of HE; articles 2, 10 and 35

2.7.3. Authors/beneficiaries should retain enough rights so that they can open up their data/results.

2.7.4. Problem: researchers think that research data management automatically includes full open data. But those are separate. They could opt out on open access, but still need to do proper data management.

2.7.5. Stronger sanctions for non-compliance directed at institutions, not researchers

2.8. Plan S - Making open access a reality by 2020

2.8.1. 13 national research funders associated, including the Norwegian one

2.8.2. Implementation guidance

4.3.5. History 2011 2 year free access period 2016 Conversion to gold OA 2017 no longer part of RSC Gold, content freely accessible

4.3.6. Significant DECLINE of submissions dropped to less than 60 submissions per day only 6.6k publications in 2017, after 13k in 2016 Acceptance rate the same, but volume of publications went down

4.3.7. Acceptance rate around 40% No quantitative change

4.3.8. The Drop was really correlated to the flip to OA.

4.3.9. Submissions increased to other titles, but RSC Advances declined

4.3.10. Still experiencing more loss of submissions

4.3.11. 750 pound APC Also full APC waiver

4.3.12. Industry standard CC licensing

4.3.13. Strong declines across all countries Doesn't matter whether it's from a country with strong OA support.

4.3.14. Norway actually went up with 8%!

4.3.15. We have a serious risk losing authorship to competing journals Some countries not supporting (gold) OA? Funding tied up with bigger publishers?

4.3.16. We don't want to see the same declines in submissions for all our journals

4.3.17. RSC Advances market share loss

4.3.18. Flip to OA had no positive effect on readership

4.4. Transparent hybrid model (Read & Publish)

5.1.3. focus on AAMs of journal articles

5.1.4. Overall approach relatively soft

5.1.5. Gold OA journals and monographs of Leuven University Press

5.1.6. Officially no support for for-profit Gold OA

5.1.7. In reality, APC payments outside of library at very least ~€380k This is on top of the €9M KUL collection budget they already spend

5.2. Why Fair OA?

5.2.1. Ethical reasons

5.2.2. Academic reasons

5.2.3. Financial reasons

5.3. How Fair OA?

5.3.1. for-profit OA Commercial publishers ~€380k spend Fake publishers ~€30k spend Short term solution that will ultimately be unsustainable

5.3.2. non-profit OA green OA self archiving, typically delayed no answer on the financial reasons because it costs money to run a repository, and we still need to pay for the publishing that preceeds the deposit black OA Provides a financial solution! fair (gold) OA non-commercial academic publishers: mission driven rather than profit driven OA through cost effective APCs/BPCs or through subsidy model (aka diamond/platinum) Will tick all the boxes

5.4. KU Leuven fund for Fair OA

5.4.1. Monographs BPCs for OA monographs with Leuven university press

5.4.2. Articles For non-profit publishers fair character guaranteed DOAJ in combination with WoS and VABB 8 months in, 28 applications, 16 approved. averaging 734 APC including VAT Not super effective yet, but a great conversation starter on why applications are being rejected. Practically: if a researcher asks less than 1000, approved without question. If they ask more, there must be an argumentation That argumentation/answer, justifying more than 1000 euro never comes.

5.5. BPCs

5.5.1. Open to all authors, not only KU Leuven authors

5.5.2. 8 months old, 13 book projects approved

5.6. Question: It's not for profit that it's bad, right? If good services are provided at a fair price, what's the problem?

5.6.1. If scholars determine the rules it's better

5.6.2. For commercial companies, the profit motivation will ultimately compromise/hurt scholarship.
