The exchange between open access and open educational resources: What can we learn? Timothy Vollmer 3 March 2014

(1) Content

OA OER

Takeaway: OA articles feeding OER

(2) Policy

OER OA

What’s important?

4Rs

Reuse Redistribute Revise Remix

Astroturfing? Sure.

Policy wins with these reuse rights? Yes.

Publicly funded resources are openly licensed resources.

● clarify legal right to reuse! ● enable customization, remix, translation ● $$$ savings ● creators retain copyright ● entrepreneurial use ● compatibility with other OER ● standardization ● maximize potential impact of funds

What’s important?

10 year recommendations for licensing and reuse: ● OA journals are always in a position to require open licenses...CC BY is recommended; ● Policy makers in a position to direct deposits under open licenses, preferably CC BY; ● Strategy! ○ Public access (free) better than toll access. ○ Open access (open licensing) is better than simply public access. ○ CC BY or equivalent is better than [more] restrictive open licenses.

We’ve got great OA publishers supporting BOAI

Where are the public policies supporting BOAI?

NIH: no

White House: no

FASTR: no*

Omnibus: no

RCUK: a mess

Why?

● clarify legal right to reuse! ● enable customization, remix, translation ● $$$ savings ● creators retain copyright ● entrepreneurial use ● compatibility with other OER ● standardization ● maximize potential impact of funds

Problems are similar

Benefits are clear

What is needed?

(1) It’s 42.16km, not 100m.

● Public access (free) better than toll access. ● Open access (open licensing) is better than public access. ● CC BY or equivalent is better than more restrictive open licenses. ● OA Publishers show the way! ● Keep an eye on OER policy

(2) #BOAI10 redux

Make connection between reuse rights and progress ● benefits to research and researchers ● how lack of OA impedes research ● increases the return on their investment in research ● amplifies the social and educational value of research ● costs can be recovered without (much) additional investment ● consistent with copyright law everywhere in the world ● consistent with the highest standards of quality

(3) The right to read is the right to mine.

Wanted: policies to enable “computational analysis using state-of-the-art technologies”

Great! Science is global. Let’s break down barriers to sharing and collaboration by standardizing around open formats and licenses.

TDM and licensing: be careful what you wish for...

Michael Carroll in PLOS: “... the license applies only to uses covered by copyright, and copyright does not regulate text mining - at least in the United States.” http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pbio.1001210
