BASE : moteur de recherche de ressources en open access
BASE is one of the world's most voluminous search engines especially for academic open access web resources. BASE is operated by Bielefeld University Library. As the open access movement grows and prospers, more and more repository servers come into being which use the "Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting" (OAI-PMH) for providing their contents. BASE collects, normalises, and indexes these data. BASE provides more than 80 million documents from more than 4,000 sources. You can access the full texts of about 60-70% of the indexed documents. BASE is a registered OAI service provider and contributed to the European project "Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research" (DRIVER). In comparison to commercial search engines, BASE is charcterised by the following features: Start searching BASE

If This Then That (IFTTT): Connecting the Web One Recipe at a Time If This Then That (IFTTT) is a service software that lets the Internet do your work for you by connecting major sites across the web, such as Gmail, Dropbox, Facebook, Evernote, and more. The way IFTTT works is by taking a trigger (if this) and connecting it to an action (then that) on another site. This is known as a personal recipe. Here are some examples: Toolkit for Open Access support staff The opeNWorks project team is pleased to release a toolkit for Open Access support staff. The toolkit has been designed in response to feedback received at our December workshop and from project partners. It comprises guidance and materials for staff who are in a new Open Access support role or for whom Open Access is only a small part of their wider role. It contains the following materials: Introductory guide to Open Access for support staff‘Ask an OA colleague’ Q&A wiki prototypeCustomisable Open Access presentation template and supporting notes The opeNWorks project aims to develop a community of good Open Access practice in the North West.

Gold OA Researchers How to request APCs Use this service to claim APCs for your post-grant FP7 publications.

UNESCO’s Open Access (OA) Curriculum is now online Within the overall framework of the organization’s strategy on OA, the recent launch of OA curricula for Researchers and Library Schools by UNESCO highlights its efforts for enhancing capacities to deal with Open Access issues. The carefully designed and developed sets of OA curricula for researchers and library and information professionals are based on two needs assessment surveys, and several rounds of face-to-face and online consultations with relevant stakeholders. These curricula will soon be converted into self-directed e-learning tools, which will enable users to self-assess their knowledge on Open Access and take a learning pace that is initiated and directed by the learners themselves. UNESCO also aims to strengthen this initiative by translating the OA curricula into several languages that will increase their reach and impact.

OA2020 Roadmap [Download as PDF] A. Introduction This roadmap complements the Expression of Interest; it is intended to offer guidelines for some practical steps that can be taken to prepare for the envisaged open access transformation. Open Access In Action Open Access remains an increasingly important element of the scholarly publishing landscape. The rising costs of subscriptions are straining library budgets, and institutions are under ever increasing pressure to meet a complex system of funder-mandates. Follow us to learn how librarians like you are driving practice across the lifecycle of open access. Updated weekly with original articles, video interviews, news and perspectives, Open Access in Action will track the evolution of open access (OA) issues through the library lens, where this movement transitions from philosophy to the hands-on solutions that make it real. Featured Video Interview Gary Price, Editor, infoDOCKET and Dr.

Gold Open Access: Counting the Costs Printer-friendly version Send to friend Theo Andrew presents new data on the cost of Gold OA publishing at the University of Edinburgh. Research Councils UK (RCUK) have recently announced a significant amendment to their open access (OA) policy which requires all research papers that result from research partly or wholly funded by RCUK to be made open access [1]. To comply with this policy, researchers must either; a) publish in an open access journal, termed Gold OA, which often incurs an article processing charge (APC); or, b) ensure that a copy of the post-print is deposited in an appropriate repository, also known as Green OA. A subsequent clarification from RCUK stated that Gold OA is the preferred mechanism of choice to realise open access for outputs that they have funded and have announced the award of block grants to eligible institutions to achieve this aim [2].

Report claims improvements needed for article processing charges » As a response to the Finch report, the UK Open Access Implementation Group (OAIG) examines how intermediaries could help manage the impact an increase in the volumes of open access article processing charges (APCs) could have for universities, funders and publishers. The implementation of the Finch report and new polices from Research Councils will result in vastly increased volumes of open access publishing in the UK, and in payments of article processing charges (APCs). The “The Potential Role for Intermediaries in Managing the Payment of Open Access Article Processing Charges” report reveals an almost universal consensus that work is required to develop and implement standards to facilitate more effective flows between authors, publishers, universities and funders of information relating to the payment of article processing charges (APCs) – the charges levied by some publishers of open access and hybrid journals to meet the costs of the publication process. -Ends-

Occam's Typewriter The internet was all aflutter last week because Elsevier has sent thousands of take-down notices to, a social networking site where many researchers post and share their published papers. This marks a significant change of tack for Elsevier. Previously the publisher had only been sending a handful of DMCAs a week to (the notices are named after the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act), but now it appears they have decided to get tough. There was the predictable outrage at the manoeuvre though, as several commentators acknowledged, Elsevier is acting entirely legally. It is simply enforcing rights that were handed to it — for no compensation — by the authors who have now been affected by the takedown demands. The company is behaving rationally.
