Contents · Introduction · Contextualization · Current Situation · The Final Cut - How can I also softwar for OA?
Introduction · Definition: Open Access (OA) means free online access to all peer reviewed articles that are published in Scientific Journals (Harnad 2005). · Goal: maximize impact to foster progress (deposit, access, impact, progress) · Two roads to achieve OA: Green and Golden 4
Contents · Introduction · Contextualization · Current Situation · The Final Cut - How can I also softwar for OA?
Contextualization · Serials' Crisis (70's-90's; Librarians' dissatisfaction ); · WWW (1991 - Tim Berners-Lee - CERN) · Arxiv (1991 - Paul Ginsparg - LANL) · Dissatisfaction - re-iterated requests for bringing control "Back to Academia" (90's - Ann Okerson Yale University) · Satisfaction - Increase Impact (90's - Stevan Harnad Scholarly Skywriting - University of Southampton) · OAI-PMH (1999-2001 - Carl Lagoze - Cornell & Herbert Van de Sompel - LANL)
Contextualization · Open-source software: · Institutional Repositories (Eprints, DSpace, Fedora...) · Other: Operating Systems; Servers; DBMS; Programming Environments; Software libraries · Journal management systems (OJS,...) · Distributed Group Work

Current Situation · Green Road: 94% of Journals allow selfarchival (source: http://openaccess.eprints.org/index.php?/archives/128-The-Geeks-and-theIrrational.html; accessed:12/09/2006) · Green Road: 741 OA Repositories (1); 9.013.777 records (2); (sources: (1) http://www.opendoar.org/; (2) http://www.oaister.org; accessed:12/09/2006) · Golden Road: 2364 golden journals with 107,860 articles (source: http://www.doaj.org; accessed:12/09/2006)
Current Situation · Evidence: impact increase; · OA articles are not only more cited - they are also more rapidly cited (Brody et al., 2005; Swan, 2006) · User studies: · >90% scholars say they publish their work to communicate their reSearch Results to pears · 81% of scholars say they would comply to a mandate (Swan, 2006)

Still... ... only 15% of scholars self-archive!!! ... average number of article in an institutional repository is 297 Why??? (Swan, 2006)
Myths regarding OA 34 Myths listed in Harnad's self-Archiving FAQ organised accordingly to the following categories: 1. Copyright 2. Peer review 3. Sitting Pretty 4. Preservation 5. Learned Societies' future 6. Publishers' future 7. University conspiracy 8. Priority 9. Plagiarism (source: http://www.eprints.org/openaccess/self-faq/; accessed: 12/09/2006)
Solutions · Mandates (Institutional, Funding Agencies,...) · Softwars: · Further user studies (not "why don't", but "why do" they self-archive?) · Evidence of impact (statistics, scientometric studies... ) · Create the habit (start by distributing benefits to those who self-archive) · Word-of-mouth

The Final Cut 1. Do it yourself! 2. Spread the word: tell others you already do it!: on your citation information, on your talks, on your Web page, on your classes. 3. Spread the word: talk about it to your institution's managers, to your funding bodies, etc.
