Description/Abstract

The UK should maximise the benefits to the British tax-payer from the research it funds by mandating not only (as it does now) that all findings should be published, but also that open access to them should be provided, for all potential users, through either of the two available means: (1) publishing them in open-access journals (whenever suitable ones exists) (5%) and (2) publishing the rest (95%) in toll-access journals whilst also self-archiving them publicly on their own university's website. (1) Open access (worldwide) to UK research output maximises the impact (ie, visibility, usage, application, citation) of UK research output, enhancing the productivity and progress of UK (and worldwide) research, thereby maximising the return on the UK tax-payer's support for research. (2) The unified open-access provision strategy supported by the Budapest Open Access Initiative, the Berlin Declaration, and other such current movements involves two complementary strategies OAJ and OAA: (OAJ) Researchers publish their research in an open-access journal if a suitable one exists, otherwise (OAA) they publish it in a suitable toll-access journal and also self-archive it in their own research institution's open-access research archive. So why is the Science and Technology Committee inquiry into scientific publications considering only open access journals (OAJ), rather than also considering, at least as seriously, mandating university-based provision of open access to their own (peer-reviewed, published) research output (OAA)? (3) It would be a great mistake (and the press release already suggests some risk of making it) if open-access provision were to be mistakenly identified only, or even primarily, with OAJ (open access journal publishing). There are still far too few open-access journals, whereas OAA self-archiving has the power to provide immediate open access for all the rest of UK research output. The UK government can do a great deal to maximise the access to and the impact of UK research output through government research funding policies and through HEFCE influence over academic institutional policy through research assessment and funding, in particular, by extending existing publish-or-perish policy to mandate open-access provision. (4) What parliament should mandate is accordingly open-access provision for all funded research.

Additional Information: The UK Government Science and Technology Committee report was extremely thoughtful and responsive. Diverging from its original trajectory http://www.parliament.uk/parliamentary_committees/science_and_technology_committee/scitech111203a.cfm the Committee essentially adopted the Southampton/ECS recommendations in full: http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmsctech/399/39909.htm http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmsctech/399/39903.htm The Committee's final formal proposal was that Open-Access Provision, through institutional self-archiving, should be made mandatatory for all journal articles resulting from UK-funded research. The next step will be for universities and research institutions to adopt and implement such a mandatory Open Access Provision policy: http://www.eprints.org/signup/sign.php The Southampton/Loughborough/EScience written recommendations were co-signed by: Dr. Les Carr (Southampton), Professor Dave DeRoure (Southampton), Professor Stevan Harnad (Southampton,) Dr. Jessie Hey (Southampton), Professor Tony Hey (eScience), Dr. Steve Hitchcock (Southampton), Professor Charles Oppenheim (Loughborough) http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmsctech/399/399we151.htm http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmsctech/399/399we152.htm See also the University of Southampton recommendations: http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~harnad/Temp/soton7.doc Commentary On: http://www.parliament.uk/parliamentary_committees/science_and_technology_committee/scitech111203a.cfm
