    Role of library's subscription licenses in promoting open access to scientific research

    (2018-04-30) Buck, Stephen; University Library

    This presentation, based on KAUST’’s experience to date, will attempt to explain the different ways of bringing Open Access models to scientific Publisher’s licenses. Our dual approach with offset pricing is to redirect subscription money to publishing money and embed green open access deposition terms in understandable language in our license agreements. Resolving the inherent complexities in open access publishing, repository depositions and offsetting models will save libraries money and also time wasted on tedious and unnecessary administration work. Researchers will also save their time with overall clarity and transparency. This will enable trust and, where mistakes are made, and there inevitably will be with untried models, we can learn from these mistakes and make better, more robust services with auto deposition of our articles to our repository fed by Publishers’ themselves. The plan is to cover all Publishers with OA license terms for KAUST author’s right while continuing our subscription to them. There are marketing campaigns, awareness sessions are planned, in addition to establishing Libguides to help researchers, in addition to manage offset pricing models.
