Open access

Open access
Research publications that are distributed online, free of access charges or other barriers Open access (OA) is a set of principles and a range of practices through which research outputs are distributed online, free of access charges or other barriers.[1] With open access strictly defined (according to the 2001 definition), or libre open access, barriers to copying or reuse are also reduced or removed by applying an open license for copyright.[1] The main focus of the open access movement is "peer reviewed research literature."[2] Historically, this has centered mainly on print-based academic journals. Since the revenue of some open access journals are earned from publication fees charged from the authors, there are concerns about the quality of articles published in OA journals.[6][7] Definitions[edit] There are different models of open access publishing and publishers may use one or more of these models.

Thè : le portail des thèses en France Registry of Open Access Repositories ROAR Growth map of repositories and contents, 1 Aug 2011 ROAR is a searchable international Registry of Open Access Repositories indexing the creation, location and growth of open access institutional repositories and their contents. ROAR was created by EPrints at University of Southampton in 2003. To date, 2500 institutional and cross-institutional repositories have been registered in ROAR.[1][2][3][4] ROAR's companion database, the Registry of Open Access Repositories Mandatory Archiving Policies (ROARMAP), is a searchable international registry charting the growth of open access mandates adopted by universities, research institutions and research funders that require their researchers to provide open access to their peer-reviewed research article output by depositing it in an open access repository.

Open Access Project berkman interactive Book Talk: Peter Suber on 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. In this talk, Peter Suber — Director of the Harvard Open Access Project — shares insights from his new concise introduction to open access — 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.

Greenwich Academic Literature Archive - Greenwich Academic Literature Archive The political consequences of academic paywalls - Opinion The suicide of Aaron Swartz, the activist committed to making scholarly research accessible to everyone, has renewed debate about the ethics of academic publishing. Under the current system, academic research is housed in scholarly databases, which charge as much as $50 per article to those without a university affiliation. The only people who profit from this system are academic publishers. Scholars receive no money from the sale of their articles, and are marginalized by a public who cannot afford to read their work. Academic paywalls are often presented as a moral or financial issue. The impact of the paywall is most significant in places where censorship and propaganda reign. Publishing as a means to freedom In 2006, I wrote an article proving that the government of Uzbekistan had fabricated a terrorist group in order to justify shooting hundreds of Uzbek civilians gathered at a protest in the city of Andijon.

Google Scholar Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines. Released in beta in November 2004, the Google Scholar index includes most peer-reviewed online journals of Europe and America's largest scholarly publishers, plus scholarly books and other non-peer reviewed journals. It is similar in function to the freely available CiteSeerX and getCITED. It is also similar to the subscription-based tools, Elsevier's Scopus and Thomson ISI's Web of Science. Its advertising slogan – "Stand on the shoulders of giants" – is taken from a quote by Isaac Newton and is a nod to the scholars who have contributed to their fields over the centuries, providing the foundation for new intellectual achievements. History[edit] Google Scholar arose out of a discussion between Alex Verstak and Anurag Acharya,[1] both of whom were then working on building Google's main web index.[2][3] Ranking algorithm[edit]

Grey Literature - Research guides at University of Ottawa Welcome to this new Guide on Grey Literature! Grey (or gray) Literature (GL) is, according to AFNOR (Association française de normalisation), any typed or printed document, meant to reach a limited audience, outside of the commercial publishing channels and outside of the conventional bibliographic control utilities. It is difficult to estimate how much Grey Literature is produced since legal deposit laws will apply only the volume of conventional literature published commercially. Examples of Grey Literature include: study or research reports, scientific and technical reports, government documents, theses, patent documents etc. Why is there an interest in Grey Literature? Some studies indicate that ignoring literature that is valuable but not commercially available may introduce a methodological bias in conducting research. How can Grey Literature be found? More and more search engines and library resources focus on Grey Literature.
