Research Data Management and the forthcoming EU-funded LEARN project
Paul Ayris, Director of UCL Library Services & UCL Copyright Officer Chief Executive, UCL Press

This paper will look at the LERU Roadmap for Research Data, which was issued by the League of European Research Universities in 2013. The Roadmap was the first document of its kind to tackle the challenges of research data management at an institutional level in the era of data-driven science. The paper will look at the 44 Recommendations in the LERU Roadmap and also at the 10 Recommendations from LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries) for libraries who wish to get started in research data management. Using these documents as the baseline, the paper will look at the new EU-funded LEARN project (LEaders Activating Research Networks). LEARN will take the LERU Roadmap and, in a series of Workshops across Europe and Latin America, work with libraries, IT specialists, data curators, research funders and research organisations to identify their real needs in terms of research data management policy and practice. Model policies and documents will be produced by LEARN as well as a Toolkit, which builds on the LERU Roadmap. LEARN will thus produce guidance which any research organisation across the globe can use to embed best practice in research data management.



Building Block for Open Science: Opportunities for Engagement
Susan Reilly,
Executive Director of LIBER

Whether you believe that Open Science is a movement which finally makes a coherent whole of the many activities that have sprung up around opening up research processes and outputs or merely a trendy new term which will be subsumed into something else within a few years, it is clear that there are distinctive activities within the Open Science landscape that will have a long term impact on the research process. The drive towards more open and collaborative research will necessitate changes in culture and in policies, but will ultimately results in faster scientific progress and better research outputs e.g. by facilitating text and data mining and better transparency of research results.

This paper will examine some of the building blocks of and outline opportunities for engagement. How can libraries work with other stakeholders to ensure that Open Science does, in fact, become a transient term as the culture, practices and processes that Open Science denotes become the defacto modus operandi for researchers?



Improving the quality and visibility of open access journals
Lars Bjørnshauge, SPARC’s Director of European Library Relations, Managing Director DOAJ

Many European Non-English language countries experience difficulties in getting their research properly disseminated and valued. The presentation will focus on how open access academic journals can improve their quality, credibility, visibility and dissemination. Drawing on the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing ( will provide advice how academic libraries can engage with the national research community to improve the global visibility of journals published locally.

Open Access Publishing at BMJ
Simon Neilson, Institutional Open Access Sales Manager, BMJ

BMJ has a long history of engagement with open access. We believe that the wide availability of research articles is critically important to our core aim of helping doctors and patients make better healthcare decisions. The BMJ, our flagship international medical journal, is committed to keeping research articles open access, and has offered free access to research since 1998. In 2006, BMJ launched an open access option across its portfolio of journals, and in 2011 BMJ Open was launched; the company's first fully open access journal.

In previous years we have seen several positive global developments which have established open access as an important trend in the evolvement of scholarly communication. These can be seen at governmental, funding and institutional levels with these organizations having introduced mandatory policies requiring funded research to be deposited in an open access archive and encouraging publication of research results in open access journals.

Open access journals, in which the costs associated with publication are generally covered by publication fees instead of subscription revenue, have grown rapidly in recent years. The continuing growth of open access publishing depends heavily on how institutions manage their scholarly. Given this reality, it has become clear how important the role of the publisher is in adjusting themselves and responding in a timely manner to the introduction of these policies.

This presentation will give an analysis of BMJ's response as a consequence of these changes, in terms of policy procedures and ways to support both green and gold route open access.


Open Access Publishing and the role of the Royal Society of Chemistry
Claudia Heidrich, RCS

The presentation outlines the Royal Society of Chemistry’s view on Open Access , Open Access Options for authors in RSC Journals and how as a society publisher we are supporting the funder-led evolution to Gold Open Access with a Gold for Gold initiative, ensuring academics can further increase the visibility of their quality research. We will review what the RSC has achieved with the Gold for Gold initiative worldwide and what further steps we take to lead and support our community in Open Access.



Springer's OA policies and Off-setting strategies
Juliane Ritt, Executive Vice President Global Open Access Hybrid Initiatives, Springer Nature

In several European countries - especially in the UK and the Netherlands - the development of open access policies has reached a new phase. From just talking about it, the step to enforcing and implementing has been made. Springer is proud to be a frontrunner in the discussions about this exciting next step and to have made arrangements with some of the major partners: JISC in the UK, VSNU in the Netherlands, and major customers in Germany and Austria. These off-setting arrangements all have their own individual characteristics, but they share the result: researchers publishing in the vast majority of Springer's traditional journals will comply with the rules of their funders. Juliane Ritt will explain SpringerNature's open access policies, the commitment to the further development of open access and will give insight in the issues and opportunities Springer has discussed with library, consortium and university partners, while building this new type of publishing and reading arrangements.

Oxford Open - Supporting the Evolution of Open Access Publishing
Lucy Oates, Open Access Publishing Assistant, Oxford University Press

OUP has been publishing open access journals since 2004. In that time the entire landscape of scholarly publishing has changed, with OA becoming a huge part of the publishing ecosystem. OA publishing is hugely exciting, but hugely complex, and OUP is working to make OA as accessible, understandable, and achievable for our authors, readers, and publishing partners as possible. In our talk we'll cover OA developments at OUP, the opportunities and challenges presented to traditional publishers by OA, and some of the ways in which we've adapted our OA publishing over the last few years to adapt to changes in the market.


BioOne – a non-profit secondary publisher with an Open Access collaboration
Manisha Bolina

BioOne is a non-profit organisation providing an online aggregation of high quality life science journals. This presentation will discuss how BioOne’s subscription based model has led to the creation of their own Open Access journal called “Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene” and the importance of reinvestment into a scholarly enterprise.

Also, Susan Reilly decided to change her presentation, please find below the complete title and abstract. I know its rather late, but I hope we can still change it. If that shall be a problem, just let me know.


Impact, Interest, Context - Open Access in Web of Science
Iulian Herciu, Account Manager, Thomson Reuters

This year Web of Science has reached incredible milestones of having indexed over 90 million records and 1 billion cited references.

With access to the full breadth and depth of Web of Science, researchers are able to uncover connections and understand the citation footprint of innovative ideas, regardless if the publications are indexed or not in Web of Science.

The rise of the Open Access is changing the landscape of the scientific information industry: the concept of impact is redefined, the use of non-periodical content is becoming dominant in some areas, just to name a few. This is why we believe the quality and consistency of data is pivotal in having relevant innovations to support OA and the research ecosystem.

During the session we will present the evolution of OA in WoS from different perspectives and Thomson Reuters initiatives in this direction
