Paying for open access publication charges : guidance for higher education and research institutions, publishers and authors( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Research Information Network and Universities UK have produced a guide (March 2009) to provide advice on paying open access publication charges: that is, fees levied by some journals for the publication of scholarly articles so that they can be made available free of charge to readers, immediately upon publication. The guide also sets out recommendations for universities and other research institutions, publishers, research funders, and authors. Partly in response to the requirements of research funders for greater access to research outputs, open access journals have become a growing part of the scholarly publishing landscape over the past few years. But ways of paying publication fees have grown up haphazardly and are not standardised: fees are sometimes met from unallocated funds available to researchers from research grants or other sources, but sometimes have been met from researchers' own pockets. The group includes representatives from the library, publishing and research administrator communities, and they will be looking at the issues to be addressed in establishing coordinated and strategic approaches to the payment of publication fees and aim to provide practical guidance on the implementation of such an approach.
