Petition for guaranteed public access to publicly-funded research results

Budapest Open Access Initiative 2001 An old tradition and a new technology have converged to make possible an unprecedented public good. The old tradition is the willingness of scientists and scholars to publish the fruits of their research in scholarly journals without payment, for the sake of inquiry and knowledge. The new technology is the internet. The public good they make possible is the world-wide electronic distribution of the peer-reviewed journal literature and completely free and unrestricted access to it by all scientists, scholars, teachers, students, and other curious minds. Removing access barriers to this literature will accelerate research, enrich education, share the learning of the rich with the poor and the poor with the rich, make this literature as useful as it can be, and lay the foundation for uniting humanity in a common intellectual conversation and quest for knowledge http:// www.soros.org/openaccess/read.shtml

Bethesda statement on open access June 20, 2003 “ Scientific research is an interdependent process whereby each experiment is informed by the results of others. The scientists who perform research and the professional societies that represent them have a great interest in ensuring that research results are disseminated as immediately, broadly and effectively as possible. Electronic publication of research results offers the opportunity and the obligation to share research results, ideas and discoveries freely with the scientific community and the public.” http:// www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/bethesda.htm

Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities Our mission of disseminating knowledge is only half complete if the information is not made widely and readily available to society. New possibilities of knowledge dissemination not only through the classical form but also and increasingly through the open access paradigm via the Internet have to be supported. We define open access as a comprehensive source of human knowledge and cultural heritage that has been approved by the scientific community http://www.zim.mpg.de/openaccess-berlin/berlin_declaration.pdf

Roads to Open Access http://www.eprints.org/openaccess/ the "golden road" of OA journal-publishing , where journals provide OA to their articles (either by charging the author-institution for refereeing/publishing outgoing articles instead of charging the user-institution for accessing incoming articles, or by simply making their online edition free for all); the "green road" of OA self-archiving , where authors provide OA to their own published articles, by making their own eprints free for all.The two roads to OA should not be confused or conflated; they are complementary .

The Economic Sustainability of Journals Source: J. Willinsky, PKP Open Access Online Publication Journals can now be managed and published online with open source (free) software that offers economic and quality advantages for scholarly communication. Online Management ECONOMICS OF ONLINE SYSTEMS

The Economic Sustainability of Journals Source: J. Willinsky, PKP Quality Advantage Improves administration and record-keeping, while reducing processing time. Enables editors, reviewers, and authors from anywhere to work together. 3. Enables editors to spend more time helping authors by reducing their management time with the journal. Economic Advantage 1. Provides and manages website for editorial and publishing processes, while reducing need for editorial office. 2. Reduces clerical costs of handling submissions, subscriptions, correspondence, filing, photocopying, etc. 3. Authors do not need to print, photocopy, and mail papers. ONLINE MANAGEMENT

Quality Advantage

Improves administration and record-keeping, while reducing processing time.

Enables editors, reviewers, and authors from anywhere to work together.

3. Enables editors to spend more time helping authors by reducing their management time with the journal.

The Economic Sustainability of Journals Source: J. Willinsky, PKP Notes 1 .Assessing the Impact of Open Access: Preliminary Findings from Oxford University Press ( http:// www.oxfordjournals.org/news/oa_report.pdf ) Quality Advantage 1. Immediate full-text indexing with Google, Google Scholar, Yahoo, etc. leading to increased readership and citations. 1 2. Google Scholar citation indexing from first issue, assists in gaining a listing with commercial indexes (ISI, etc). 3. Supports reference linking, as well as additional reading tools that can search related databases. 4. Ability to include data sets and supplementary materials. Economic Advantage 1. Journal is immediately available to subscribers and readers anywhere with no distribution, mailing, handling costs. 2. Can be used with or without print edition, enabling low cost start up of new journals. 3. No cost in offering free subscriptions or sample issues. ONLINE PUBLISHING

The Economic Sustainability of Journals Source: J. Willinsky, PKP Note 1. The Effect of Open Access and Downloads ('Hits') on Citation Impact: a Bibliography of Studies ( http://opcit.eprints.org/oacitation-biblio.html ). Quality Advantage 1. Further increases readership and submissions to journal, with citations going up 25-250% depending on the field and journal. 1 2. The increased citation improves reputation and thus qualification for commercial indexing (e.g., ISI). 3. Provides greater public, professional, and educational contribution. 4. Maximizes critical scrutiny and appreciation of work, as well as global establishment of intellectual property claim. Economic Advantage Able to work with traditional economic models through a variety of different approaches 2. Improved reputation (see below) can enhance other economic models (subscriptions, ads, etc.). OPEN ACCESS

What is an Institutional repository? “ … a set of services that a university [an organisation] offers to the members of its community for the management and dissemination of digital materials created by the institution and its community members. It is most essentially an organizational commitment to the stewardship of these digital materials, including long-term preservation where appropriate, as well as organization and access or distribution.” Clifford A. Lynch, "Institutional Repositories: Essential Infrastructure for Scholarship in the Digital Age" ARL , no. 226 (February 2003): 1-7.

From one of our editors We have now published the 4th Issue of the AJICT as Vol 2, No 3 this week. It marks our one year as a Journal in which we rank at the Deakin University IS listing as the 7th most read Open Source Journal and the 28th most popular Internationally. We are only beaten by Journals that have been in existence for many years before us. Our readership database has grown from a handful to more than 500 and continues to grow without our intervention. There are about 150 international reviewers in the database and access to the Journal is from all over the world. We appreciate the role of the UTS Library and ePress in making this Journal a rewarding success story. Thanks.
