CHORUS will create a Preprint Dashboard and Reporting Service to identify related funders, datasets, reuse licenses, ORCID identifiers, and links to published articles on publisher sites and government public access repositories. The preprint dashboard will aid in discoverability of preprints associated with funded research – providing insight into where research is first being shared. The dashboard has the potential to provide non-ambiguous links between the preprint and published research, researchers, and their funding.
Springer Nature has agreed the largest Transformative Agreement in Japan with 10 institutions participating in an innovative pilot. This will see nearly 900 articles published OA in the coming year, marking a significant step forward to Open Science in the region.
We’re delighted to announce that as of March 15, corresponding authors at all ten UC campuses and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) who publish open access articles in Wiley journals will receive a 15 percent discount on the open access fee (also known as an article processing charge, or APC) as part of a new pilot agreement UC has negotiated with the publisher.
“The agreement brings together UC, which generates nearly 10 percent of all U.S. research output, and Wiley, which publishes nearly 2,000 peer-reviewed journals, to advance a sustainable transition to open access.
Under the pilot agreement, which covers articles published from January 1 to December 31, 2022, Wiley will make open access the first-choice option for articles by authors at five UC campuses — Irvine, Merced, Riverside, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz. For authors at those five campuses who publish in Wiley journals, the UC libraries will automatically cover the first $1,000 of the article publication charge (APC) and authors will be asked to pay the balance; those who do not have research funds available can request full funding of the APC from the libraries. The pilot allows UC and Wiley to test new processes and models and will help with product development before exploring potential future expansion to the entire UC system.
Additionally, corresponding authors at all ten UC campuses and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will receive a discount on APCs when publishing open access in Wiley journals….”
Global research and education leader Wiley today announced a new pilot agreement with the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC) to accelerate the publication of open access articles across 61 SCELC members and affiliates.
The agreement supports researchers at participating institutions – which span the U.S. states of California, Texas, Hawaii and others – by delivering unrestricted access to all of Wiley’s hybrid and subscription journals and granting the ability to publish accepted articles open access in all of Wiley’s 1,400 hybrid journals.
In a 12-month pilot scheme, the Kortext Open Resources Collection – a curated collection of open access (OA) books and open educational resources (OERs) – will be available to all Jisc FE member institutions. This means that the UK’s 1.7 million FE learners will have free and fair access to these resources, which support a range of subjects from arts, business, and environment information technology and English literature.
