The Foundation for The Gator Nation An Equal Opportunity Institution George A. Smathers Libraries 535 Library West Office of the Dean of University Libraries PO Box 117000 Gainesville, FL 32611 7000 352 273 2505 352 392 7251 Fax www.uflib.ufl.edu University of Florida Open Access Publishing Fund Pilot Project Final Report March 2012 Description The University of Florida Open Access Publishing Fund (UFOAP) was launched July 1, 2010. The Fund was established with the approval of the academic deans as an 18 24 month pilot project, funded with $120,000 from the Provost’s Office and administered by Smathers Libraries. The Fund became completely expended in February 2012. Any UF faculty, student or staff was eligible for $3,000 per year, and a maximum of $3,000 per peer reviewed research article published in a journal listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), or $1,500 for an article published in a hybrid journal1. Because the UFOAP funds were intended to support articles not covered by grants or other funding sources, support was provided only for those articles emanating from grants submitted before the UFOAP commencement of July 1, 2010. Evaluation Evaluation measures were established upon creation of the Fund, with the understanding that a successful review would result in recurring funds added to the Libraries base budget. The three evaluative measures are: 1) quantification of the use of the funds, 2) evaluative comments from the participants, and 3) citation counts of the articles. Quantification of the Use of UFOAP 134 unique applications received (See Figure 1) 101 applications/articles funded2 84 unique submitting authors reimbursed (“unique” because many applied for, and received, funding multiple times) o 54 Faculty o 6 Staff o 21 Students o 3 Post Doctoral Researchers 278 UF faculty, students, and staff recipients, who benefitted as authors and co authors were included in the approved applications and supported by the Fund 10 colleges and the Museum of Natural History participating 39 departments participating 44 unique journals funded, 10 of which were hybrid journals $122,132 funds disbursed3 1A hybrid journal is a variation on the open access journal model. Traditional open access journal are fully open access in that every article is available freely and openly. Hybrid journals are not fully open; rather, the only articles that are open access are those for which the author has specifically paid a fee for it to be freely available. All other articles in the journal are closed and only available to paid subscribers. 2 Of the 33 unfunded applications, 25 were denied because they did not meet the Fund criteria (e.g. publication or publisher not listed in either the DOAJ or the OASPA), and the remaining eight were denied because they were not accompanied by the required documentation.3 The actual net funding was $119,790 as a result of a recall of $210 in carryover funds at the end of FY11. The overage of awarded funds was covered by the Libraries.


2 Figure 1: Number of Applications by UF College The number of applications per month varied, with the lowest number of applications received during break months (August and December). There has been a steady increase, however, in the number of applications received each month, with January 2012 recording the highest monthly total (see Figure 2). Figure 2: Number of Applications Per Month


3 Qualitative Feedback from the Participants In December 2011, a survey was sent to 72 individuals who applied for funding through the UFOAP between July 1, 2010 and December 1, 2010. Thirty seven responded; 89% of those were approved for funding and the other 11% were denied funding. The majority of survey respondents (67.6%) were faculty, and the remaining were students (29.7%) and UF staff (2.7%). The survey questions fell into three distinct categories: the UFOAP application process, the value of the UFOAP, and the value of open access. The Application Process. An overwhelming majority of survey respondents characterized the application process as simple and accessible. Nearly 90% indicated that the guidelines and procedures were easy to locate and to understand and 97.3% characterized the application form as simple to complete. However, there were several suggestions for improving the application form itself, such as the requirement to list volume and issue number of the funded article, which is usually not disclosed to the author at the time the article is accepted and the fee invoiced. Timing is also a factor with regard to inclusion of the required acknowledgement statement: for some journals, it is too late to edit the manuscript to add an acknowledgement once it has been accepted, but the UFOAP application is submitted and approved after acceptance. The remaining comments suggested further automation of the application process to eliminate the need to print and manually submit the application form. The feasibility of this has been discussed by the UFOAP administrator with the Libraries Information Technology Department. The Value of the UFOAP Fund The UFOAP has contributed to raising awareness of open access on the UF campus. Nearly one third of the survey respondents indicated that they had either never heard of, or knew little about, open access prior to learning about the UFOAP. The UFOAP is viewed as a critical piece of the open access initiative at UF. Of the 36 applicants who responded to the survey, 100% indicated that the UFOAP should continue beyond the initial pilot period, with 26 affirming that they would write letters of support to their college dean or the provost. One respondent stated that, “without the UFOAP, many [articles] would have been published in lower ranked…less accessible journals.” Another respondent characterized the UFOAP as a “great resource for scholarly productivity.” As many as 28 respondents said that they were very likely to apply for UFOAP funding again, and 31 applicants responded that they referred a colleague to the UFOAP for funding. The Value of Open Access. Several questions on the survey polled respondents about attitudes toward open access as a campus initiative. Respondents indicated that more than 60% of both their departmental colleagues and their external colleagues viewed their choice to publish in an open access journal as positive or very positive. None indicated that their open access choice had been viewed negatively by others. Nearly 90% of all respondents indicated that open access publishing was regarded either neutrally or with some degree of value for purposes of tenure and promotion and for research reliability. More than 60% also indicated that their scholarly works were more discoverable as a result of publishing in an open access journal. Two results— the “increase in discoverability” and the “wider dissemination of research”—were selected by respondents as the greatest benefits of open access. Respondents identified the fee charged to authors as the greatest disadvantage. No major issues were reported regarding the administration of the fund, but the creation of a more sophisticated application database system would address procedural concerns raised in the respondents’ comments. In short, the survey results indicate that the UFOAP is of great value to the UF community. It has helped increase awareness of open access on campus and contributed to wider dissemination and discoverability of UF’s scholarly output. Because the greatest disadvantage of open access publishing identified by respondents was the cost of author’s fees, it is crucial to maintain a funding program not only to meet a growing faculty expectation but also to sustain UF’s role as a leader and active participant in the open access movement.


4 In addition to the feedback received on the survey, UFOAP recipients frequently provide positive feedback in reply to notice of approval of their application. For example, Assistant Professor Leda Kobziar replied that the UFOAP “weighed in my decision to use an open access journal for the first time.” Dr. Graciela Lorca, Assistant Professor, Department of Microbiology and Cell Science wrote: The Open Access Publishing Fund is more important than ever. The use of open access publications increases the impact and availability of peer reviewed work to a much wider audience than traditional publications… For us personally, the open access format maximizes the visibility and impact of our work, and is the real next step in the evolution of peer reviewed publishing…..The Open Access Fund allowed us to publish in what we believe is a better format than traditional journals without dealing with inhibitory publishing fees. Assistant Professor Zhonglin Mou reported back that the OA review and publication processes were quicker and less expensive in comparison to conventional publishing. In addition, he received immediate feedback on his research, and was confident the publication would strengthen his Tenure and Promotion packet. He also appreciated the application process was quick, and noted it was very nice to have this kind of support for the article processing fees. Dr. David Reed, Assistant Curator of Mammals at the Florida Museum of Natural History, spoke, as a UFOAP recipient, at the 2011 Open Access Week event about his experience with open access. After publishing in open access, Dr. Reed’s research attracted the attention of a reporter for the New York Times who provided a link to one of his open access articles. Within hours of the publication of the Times article, dozens of bloggers and the science news aggregator service Slashdot ran posts about the research with links to Reed’s article. Reed highlighted the impact that publishing in an open access journal has on the general public: If this had been published in a place that didn’t have access, it wouldn’t have had quite the meaning to the general public. They wouldn’t have been able to go to the journal itself and write comments about the paper and they wouldn’t have been able to download the original article themselves and read it…After 30 days [the article] had over 3200 downloads. None of my other works, probably all of them combined, will ever have 3200 pairs of eyes looking at them. And the thing that was really remarkable to me is that the reason the number of views was so high is that the general public was looking at this pure scientific research that they typically would not have had access to in the past. They paid for it; they ought to be able to see it and they ought to be able to do so very easily. Dan Spade, who is a graduate student in the UF Physiological Sciences Department working in Environmental Toxicology, studied the queen conch with support from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. He appreciated having the UFOAP Fund available because his was a small grant that didn’t include money for open access publishing. While he enjoyed having his article published so quickly and looks forward to the permanency of his article, he especially noted that a major benefit of OA is making the research available to other people who are working on the same species throughout the Caribbean: We have a collaborator that we work with pretty directly from the Virgin Islands, and their university library does not offer access to as many journals online as the UF does, and people like that who are interested in the same species but do not have access to the same resources that this big university does can still see my paper. Associate Professor Max Teplitski told us that open access publishing has come a long way and now there are many highly prestigious journals in which to publish, and the rapid turn around of his published article demonstrated value to the funding agency and helped participating graduate students.


5 Citation Counts on Each Article Citation counts were conducted on each article through Harzing’s Publish or Perish program4 and ISI Web of Knowledge5 in February 2012. Data for computation of citations in Harzing’s comes from Google Scholar, which crawls and indexes scholarly content on the web, including both traditional and open access journals as well as books and conference reports. Google reportedly refreshes its content on a regular basis but, at best, it is monthly. However, updates to existing records can take 3 6 months to a year or longer, depending upon the size of the source web site. Further, citation counts reflected in Harzing’s can be affected by the availability of web content. If cited papers become unavailable or are reformatted in a way to make them difficult to index, citation counts may decrease. ISI Web of Knowledge includes content from all ISI registered journals, which includes journals by major open access publishers PLoS and BioMed Central. ISI indicates that it updates its content on a weekly basis. The time between publication and appearance in these two citation services, thus, may vary from a week to a few months and likely accounts for the lack of citations for articles more recently published. In addition, it should be noted that the citation rates for published articles during the first six months, or even longer, will be very low because the UFOAP supported articles first must be read and evaluated by other researchers, incorporated into the new research with citing authors taking time to complete their research and write their articles, and then time is needed for the entire publishing process of the new articles. The chart found in the Appendix to this report lists articles funded by the UFOAP. The chart includes the date of publication and the citation counts from the two services. Citation counts will be revisited and updated in 6 months, by which time additional citations should be available. Future of the UFOAP Fund The UFOAP Midterm Report indicated two areas of effort to promote sustainability of the fund. The first area of effort was to maintain a steady uptick of applications. As discussed above and exemplified in the chart in Figure 1, applications have been steadily increasing and applications continue to be received despite the fund’s current expended status. A survey was conducted, as indicated in the Midterm Report, and responses demonstrate the necessity and importance of the UFOAP’s continuation. Marketing of the UFOAP in particular and open access in general was accomplished through: the Open Access Week event, announcements in the Faculty Update Newsletter and the Graduate Student Listserv, and direct contact by the Scholarly Communications Librarian during faculty workshops and Library Liaisons during outreach. These efforts also contributed to the increase in applications. The second area of effort was to market the UFOAP to colleges not currently represented in the applicant pool. The national trend continues to show open access publishing dominance in the natural and health sciences. Our own application data supports this trend. More than half of the funded articles (58 of 101) appeared in journals offered by the two largest and most prestigious open access publishers, PLoS (Public Library of Science) and BioMed Central. These publishers offer journals exclusively for health and natural sciences. While applications have not yet been received from the colleges of Business and Administration; Law; Design, Construction and Planning; Fine Arts; and Journalism and Communication, there are other developments that will promote open access and the UFOAP to these colleges and curricular areas. A full time Digital Humanities Librarian offers increased opportunities for outreach to the humanities faculty and departments. The Digital Humanities Librarian and the Scholarly Communications Librarian have collaborated to promote Open Journal 4 Harzing, A.W.

6 Systems (OJS), an OA journal hosting software, and to support library services. Further, the College of Law recently announced a launch of its own institutional repository and that its student edited law review will be published as an open access journal. Finally, members of the Scholarly Communication Working Group will devise an educational program to help faculty ascertain the impact of specific open access publications in support of their publication choices. It is expected that this effort will also provide further opportunity to reach faculty in the social sciences and humanities. Campus Reaction Since the Fund has been Expended Since February 9, 2012 when the fund became fully expended, we have received 8 applications requesting a total of $10,182 in assistance. Additionally, since the announcement of the fund’s expended status, the Academic and Scholarly Outreach Office received inquiries from 6 additional faculty members who have either just received acceptance for publication or are contemplating publication in open access journals. Upon learning about the current status and uncertain future of the UFOAP, several offered comments in reply. From a College of Medicine faculty member: We recently submitted a request to pay for a journal article that was accepted at an open access journal ( AIDS Research and Therapy ). We submitted to the journal based on good faith understanding that the University of Florida would support this by paying the charge for the open access journal. This has been advertised very recently, and we have been encouraging our colleagues to support this…. We honestly did choose this journal specifically due to the support at UF, and we did not have money in our budget to cover the costs of publishing this paper otherwise. A faculty member from the College of Engineering commented to a librarian upon learning that the fund had been expended that, although they would like to make their article open access, they do not have any alternate funding to cover the fees. STEM faculty, he commented, are not going to wait for funding just to publish in an open access journal if it will delay publication of their work. Another College of Medicine faculty member replied that she and her co authors are now very concerned about how they will cover the cost ($1,900) of publishing their article. When they started the rigorous review process several months ago, they believed that funding would be available once the article was accepted. Just days after reading the announcement of the UFOAP’s status, they received notice of acceptance and, without any grant or other external funding, they are contemplating withdrawal of the article from the open access publication. Conclusion The UF Faculty Senate voted in March to recommend that the University become a signatory to the Berlin Declaration on Open Access and to request the University Libraries Committee to draft a campus open access policy. Simultaneously, national awareness of open access continues to grow as evidenced by recent federal legislative proposals and a call from the White House for comment on public access to scholarly research. In recognition of local and national commitments to open access, continued support for open access publishing will be necessary. UF faculty, researchers, and graduate students have indicated the need and appreciation for funding support, and have expressed their concerns that this support may not be sustained. While the strongest demand for funding continues to spring from the health and hard sciences, we anticipate an increase in interest from the social sciences and humanities as outreach in those areas continues. As noted above, when the Open Access Publishing Fund pilot project was approved by the academic deans, it was agreed that the success of the Fund, as determined by pre established criteria, would result in an increase in the Libraries base budget to sustain the Fund. Obviously, the economic situation at the University has become more difficult during this time as state appropriations have continued to decline. Nevertheless, we recommend that $75,000 be allocated in FY 2012 2013 to continue the operation of the Open Access Publishing Fund. This expense would be prorated to the colleges through the RCM budgeting process.
