Open Access: Is it the future for all
Scientific Publications?

Open Access What is it?


* Free,


* Unrestricted
* Author retains


* Papers are

TWO PATHS TO OPEN ACCESS

* Gold path the entire journal contents are open
and available. Open journals are usually
supported through the payment of author fees.
* Green path authors submit a copy of their
articles to an open repository, e.g., PubMed
Central
* Traveling either path necessitates the author's
management of his licensing agreements:

an author addendum to a publishers copyright, or


a creative commons license.








Creative Commons
Attribution License

*Copyright: 2004 Moorthy et al. This is an open-
access article distributed under the terms of the
Creative Commons Attribution License, which
permits unrestricted use, distribution, and
reproduction in any medium, provided the original

*Goal: overcome access barriers and encourage
creative uses.

Facts about Open Access:

* Open access is not a business model; it is a
property of publication
* Ability to pay plays no role in editorial
process
* Ensures stable model of global
dissemination
* Fully OA or hybrid models of publishing
thriving
* Open access embodies the concept of peer
review
* Catalysts for change









Why Open Access?

* Maximum impact for authors
access to the largest possible global audience
visibility of each paper to be measured in its own
right

* Greatly expanded access to research
for scientists, educators, physicians, the public

* New ways to access and use literature
full-text searching, data integration, and mining








How is OA Growing?


* OA is still


in its infancy


* Some traditional


publishers are


experimenting with OA format journals as
part of their portfolio
* Hard to predict if any one format will
predominate in the future

Open Access is still in its early days

A grassroots initiative by scientific
community to enforce deposition of published
research into a public repository (Pub Med
Central)
Circulated an open letter urging publishers to
increase access to research literature (>30,000
signatories)
In December, 2002, $9 million grant from
Moore Foundation to launch open access
journals.

My Own role at PLoS Pathogens


* I was invited in 2005 to join the Board by
John Young, the first Editor-in-Chief
* Started as Associate Editor, then Section
Editor for Virology, and now Deputy EIC
* I found the journal's emphasis on
pathogen-host interface appealing

Opportunity at the Article Level

What Does this Mean for My Research?







Expanding access means more
citations

* As part of the tenure and promotion
process, faculty quantify the significance
of their work to their discipline.

Traditional measures include:

* Ranking of the journals in which you
publish known as the Impact factor.
* Number of times other scholars have
cited your works.








Citation advantage of open-access?
Numerous studies offer mixed results
and discipline variations


Norris, M.and others studied citation rates in Open Access vs Toll
Access (Subscription) journals for ecology, applied mathematics,
sociology, and economics.
"Of a sample of 4,633 articles examined, 2,280 (49%) were OA and
had a mean citation count of 9.04 whereas the mean for (toll
access) TA articles was 5.76. There appears to be a clear citation
advantage for those articles that are OA as opposed to those that
are TA." [Abstract] Rates varied for each discipline.

Information Science and Technology, Vol. 59, No. 12, 2008, 1963-1972, published

BThe student council (http://www.iscbsc.orq/) of the International Society for Computational
Biology asked me to present my thoughts on getting published in the field of computational biology at
the Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology conference held in Detroit in late June of 2005. Close to
200 bright young souls (and a few not so young) crammed into a small room for what proved to be a
wonderful interchange among a group of whom approximately one-half had yet to publish their first
paper. The advice I gave that day I have modified and present as ten rules for getting published.

Rule i: Read many papers, and learn from both the good and the bad work of others.

It is never too early to become a critic. Journal clubs, where you critique a paper as a group, are

The late Lindley 3. Stiles famously made himself an advocate for teaching during his professorship at
the University of Colorado: "If a better world is your aim, all must agree: The best should teach'
(http://thebestshouldteach.org/). In fact, dispensing high-quality teaching and professional education
is the primary goal of any university F11. Thus, for most faculty positions in academia, teaching is a
significant requirement of the job. Yet, the higher education programs offered to Ph.D. students do not
necessarily incorporate any form of teaching exposure. We offer 10 simple rules that should help you
to get prepared for the challenge of teaching while keeping some composure.

Abstract

Background

l has become an urban health problem as slum settlements have expanded worldwide. Efforts to identify interventions for urbanhave been hampered by
the lack of population-based information on Leptospira transmission determinants. The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of and identify risk
factors for infection in the urban slum setting.

Methods and Findings

We performed a community-based survey of 3,171 slum residents from -.;I., a.l.:.. Ei ii Leotospira agglutinating antibodies were measured as a marker for prior infection. Poisson
regression models evaluated the association between the presence of .ep0o3p"-r antibodies aId ci_,. ..ii,,ei.tr l arr ,,iurI: obtained from Geographical Information System surveys
and indicators of socioeconomic status and exposures for individuals. CO. raii pr.r. alen.e .r Leptosp.r antibodies **. a: 1 4% (95% confidence interval [CI], 14.0-16,8). Households
of subjects with clustered in squatter areas at the bottom of valleys. The risk of acquiring was associated with household environmental
factors such as residence in flood-risk region ?F ith open sewers (prevalence ratio [PR] 1.42, 95% CI 1,14-1,75) and proximity to accumulated refuse (1,43, 1,04-1,88), sighting
rats (1.32, 1,10-1,58), and the presen:- .:.r chickens (1,26, 1.05-1.51). Furthermore, low income and black race (1.25, 1.03-1.50) were independent risk factors. An increase of
US$1 per day in per capital household income was associated with an 11% (95% CI 5%-18%) decrease in infection risk.

Conclusions

Deficiencies in the sanitation infrastructure where slum inhabitants reside were found to be environmental sources of Leptospira transmission. Even after controlling for
environmental factors, differences in socioeconomic status contributed to the risk of indicating that effective prevention of t may need to address
the social factors that produce unequal health outcomes among slum residents, in addition to improving sanitation.

Abstract Top

Scientific innovation depends on finding, integrating, and re-using
the products of previous research. Here we explore how recent
developments in Web technology, particularly those related to the
publication of data and metadata, might assist that process by
providing semantic enhancements to journal articles within the
mainstream process of scholarly journal publishing. We exemplify
this by describing semantic enhancements we have made to a
recent biomedical research article taken from PLoS Neglected Tropical
Diseases, providing enrichment to its content and increased access
to datasets within it. These semantic enhancements include
provision of live DOIs and hyperlinks; semantic markup of textual terms,

Session on


Special Interest Group
the Future of Scientific
Publishing"


Presentation made by David Shotton

At the ISMB-ECCB 2009 Annual Meeting
Stockholm, Sweden
June, 2009







Fundamental Shifts
Open Access Publishing

*Static document to living resource
*Journal level to article level
oPrepublication review and postpublication
review
*Reader/authors decide value and impact
*Community takes back the content
*Knowledge is shared globally to all who
choose to benefit









"My aim is to excite the imaginations
of researchers and publishers,
stimulating them to explore the
possibilities of semantic publishing
for their own research articles, and
thereby break down present barriers
to the discovery and reuse of
information within traditional modes
of scholarly communication."


David Shotton








Take Control of Your Research


1. Educate yourself about open access
2. Know your rights as authors


3. Publish your best work in


OA Journals








Tenure and promotion issues


* Still to early to evaluate impact
* May be more significant for future
funding at various sources (federal,
private, etc)
