Open Access
Open Access: What?
Open Access: To What?
Open Access: To What?
Open Access:
Open Access: Why?
The objective of open-access self-archiving
(and what will persuade researchers to provide it)
Slide 12
Slide 13
Quo usque tandem patientia nostra…?

How long will we go on letting our cumulative
daily/monthly/yearly research-impact losses grow,
now that the online medium has at last made this all preventable?
Open Access: How?
Open Access: How Not:
 Archives without an institutional self-archiving policy
(near empty, in some cases for several years)
Slide 17
Even the fastest-growing archive, the Physics ArXiv, is still only growing linearly (since 1991):
Open Access: How:
Two archives with an institutional self-archiving policy
Southampton Department of Electronic and Computer Science (since 2002)
and Southampton University (since 2004)
More archives with institutional self-archiving policies:
Max-Planck Institute (Edoc) (Germany), Physics ArXiv (USA),
University of Amsterdam (Netherlands), Lund University (Sweden)
The author/institutional self-archived version
is a supplement to -- not a substitute for --
the publisher’s official version

Slide 23
For at least 10 years now,
keystrokes have been the only barrier to 100% Open Access
