- ItemFunding support for open access journals(2018) Gallilee, Patty; Gaynor, Kathy; Hall, RobynAcademic libraries have an important role to play in helping to ensure that scholarly publishing is sustainable, and that the public has access to research results and knowledge. In addition to running institutional repositories, and funding publisher’s open access (OA) article processing charges (APCs), libraries have increasingly begun funding OA journal operations directly from collection and operating budgets. The following report details attempts to “flip” subscription charges in this manner, and provides recommendations on ways that libraries can continue to support the publication and discovery of OA content into the future.
- ItemOpen access mandates in Canada(2019) Betz, Sonya; Gallilee, Patty; Hall, RobynSince the mid-2000s, funding agencies, research institutions, and governments have been implementing open access (OA) mandates in an effort to increase unrestricted access to publicly funded research. These formally established policies typically require that researchers either self-archive a final peer-reviewed draft of their work in an institutional repository (IR), or publish in an OA journal. Research has demonstrated that mandates can be an effective strategy to heighten awareness of OA publishing, and advance self-archiving of research. This issue brief provides a snapshot of OA mandates established by universities and funding agencies in Western Canada and across the country. It also provides recommendations and considerations for institutions interested in implementing or updating an OA mandate, and points to additional resources and readings to inform these activities.
