  • University of California comments in response to 2020 OSTP RFI on public access to federally funded research

    In February, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued an RFI requesting comment on how public access to federally funded research could be broadened, and in parallel, conducted a series of stakeholder meetings. As a participant in two of the meetings, I sensed broad alignment among all stakeholders — commercial publishers, society publishers, university administrators, librarians, faculty members and funders — in affirming their support of open access. And for all of those groups, with the exception of the vast majority of publishers in the conversation, embracing that fundamental goal also translated into widely held support […]

  • Update on UC’s open access negotiations with Elsevier and other journal publishers

    As 2020 begins, the University of California is making notable progress in advancing open access to UC research in partnership with a diverse range of publishers.  UC and Elsevier  After formal negotiations stalled last year, UC and Elsevier have remained in informal conversations and are looking forward to continuing that dialogue. The parties are planning to hold a meeting to explore reopening negotiations within the first quarter of 2020.  Over the past year, Elsevier has signed other transformative agreements, and we are hopeful that this suggests that the publisher is ready to discuss deals that align with UC’s goals.

    Open Source for Open Access: The Editoria Story So Far

    This article is cross-posted from the UC Press Blog. In 2014, UC Press and the California Digital Library were awarded a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to build a digital book production system, which has now become known as Editoria.

Part of the motivation behind the development of Editoria was to help ease the cost burden for publishers wishing to publish open access books. At the time, UC Press had recently launched […]

    Open Alternatives to Subscription Content

    The University of California Libraries are committed to seamlessly connecting UC faculty, students, and staff with research collections. While established tools such as UC-eLinks for paywalled/subscription literature and Request Interlibrary Loan Service for unsubscribed content have been connecting readers with scholarly content for decades, a range of new tools have emerged in recent years to improve access to and discovery of both subscription and open access (OA) publications. Paywalled content requires subscriber authentication or pay-per-view for unsubscribed content, whereas OA content is freely accessible to all readers. While the majority of scholarly publications are still published behind a paywall, the […]
