Publications | Free Full-Text | Enhancing Institutional Publication Data Using Emergent Open Science Services
he UK open access (OA) policy landscape simultaneously preferences Gold publishing models (Finch Report, RCUK, COAF) and Green OA through repository usage (HEFCE), creating the possibility of confusion and duplication of effort for academics and support staff. Alongside these policy developments, there has been an increase in open science services that aim to provide global data on OA. These services often exist separately to locally managed institutional systems for recording OA engagement and ...

Why the term 'Article Processing Charge' (APC) is misleading - Green Tea and Velociraptors
The term ‘article processing charge’, or APC, is ubiquitous in discussions about Open Access. It refers to the author-facing charge levied by many publishers in order to make an article freely available on their website. Now, putting aside the fact that this system actively discriminates against less-wealthy authors and institutes, I think that the term APC itself is incredibly misleading. Furthermore, I believe that this misdirection occurs in favour of publishers, to the detriment of all other...

Shadow Libraries | The MIT Press
Even as middle- and low-income countries expand their higher education systems, their governments are retreating from responsibility for funding and managing this expansion. The public provision of educational materials in these contexts is rare; instead, libraries, faculty, and students are on their own to get what they need.

To fix scholarly publishing, decouple credentialing from publishing
Unlike practically every other publishing industry (movies, music, etc.), the price of scholarly publishing has only increased with the advent of the internet.
The major scholarly publishers report profit margins of 30–40%, year after year. These numbers are typical (or even at the high end) of luxury brands — in other words, of exclusive goods, which are not inclusive by definition.

Library Collection Development in the Era of Open Access and Article Sharing | A Way of Happening
I don’t think library users should be reliant on the library. Yes, I think the library will always be an important place for discovering important and relevant research, but it should not be the only place. As teachers and librarians we should be training our users to be critical, independent researchers who are reliant on open resources. So that when they leave our institution and no longer have access to our library (as so many students do) they still know how to find scholarly literature and ...
