NISO Two-Part Webinar: The Infrastructure of Open Access

Part 2: Toward a Functioning Business Ecosystem

March 12, 2014

1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)

Part 1 of this webinar, Knowing What is Open, will be held on March 5.

System Requirements:

  • NISO has developed a quick tutorial, How to Participate in a NISO Web Event. Please view the recording, which is an overview of the web conferencing system and will help to answer the most commonly asked questions regarding participating in an online Webex event.
  • You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.
  • Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't always 100% reliable.
  • Please check your system in advance to make sure it meets the Cisco WebEx requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure that your system is properly set up before each webinar begins.

About the Webinar

Standards are an important element of scaling up any business process. As Open Access is rapidly growing, the need to improve the business models and relationships to create a functional ecosystem becomes more critical. The past economic models and workflows were established based on a subscription model. OA revenue models are typically based on author publication charges, creating a more complicated workflow, and it is questionable whether the new OA business practices can sustain themselves at the scale of expected article output. Invariably, third-party processors will need to help manage the institutional relationships, the billing and payment processing necessary, and likely other elements of the required business ecosystem for Open Access.

The second part of NISO’s two-part series on the Infrastructure of Open Access will discuss how to create a Functioning Business Ecosystem. Speakers will explore the infrastructure elements that some community members are putting into place, discuss what is working and what isn't, and identify problems that remain to be solved.

Managing a (Different) Data Deluge
Cameron Neylon, Advocacy Director at the Public Library of Science (PLOS)

Open Access publishing is growing rapidly and with this growth comes a change in the expectations of publishers, institutions, and authors both in the terms of the services they provide and in their expectations of each other. Institutions and publishers, used to exchanging information that deals with subscriptions and reading, now need to deal with information relating to publishing processes. Authors, previously separate from the financial transactions relating to subscriptions, are suddenly dealing with article processing charges. With this engagement comes expectations of higher quality information and data provision for institutional systems, which in turn requires more and more accurate information from authors. This presentation looks at  who can provide the necessary services as Open Access shifts from a content business to a service industry, and what infrastructure is needed to ensure the provision of these new services.

Cameron Neylon, Advocacy Director at the Public Library of Science (PLOS), is a biophysicist who has always worked in interdisciplinary areas and is an advocate of open research practice and improved data management. Along with his work in structural biology and biophysics, his research and writing focuses on the interface of web technology with science and the successful (and unsuccessful) application of generic and specially designed tools in the academic research environment. He is a co-author of the "Panton Principles for Open Data in Science" and writes regularly on the social, technical, and policy issues of open research at his blog. He joined PLOS in 2012.

*Schedule Change: Due to personal reasons, Frederick Friend will not be able to present during today's event. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause, and are very grateful for the last minute accomodation Kristin McNealy was able to make to present in his place.*
