Informationsplattform Open Access: 27. August 2020: Open-Access-Vorgaben in EU-Projekten

From Google’s English:  “The second seminar in our Open Access Talk series will take place on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 2 p.m.

In the lecture ” Open Access Requirements in EU Projects ” the legal requirements of the EU Commission for Open Access in projects it supports will be highlighted. The legally relevant text is broken down into simple work modules so that a clear picture emerges of what is required of the employees and the project coordinators at what point in time.

Among other things, we deal with the following questions:

What exactly is the EU Commission asking of the projects?
How can I finance Open Access in EU projects?
What changes in the requirements will there be under Plan S?
Where can I get more in-depth advice and who can I speak to if I need help?…”

Creative Commons: Das Städel Museum stellt mehr als 22.000 Kunstwerke zur freien Verfügung | Städel Museum

From Google’s English:  “The Städel Museum makes more than 22,000 works of art freely available in its digital collection with the Creative Commons license CC BY-SA 4.0. This enables a broad public interested in art to reproduce and share the public domain images of the works, naming the Städel Museum, and to use and edit them for any purpose. Popular works of art by the Städel, such as Sandro Botticelli’s Ideal Feminine Portrait (Portrait of Simonetta Vespucci as a Nymph) (approx. 1480), Franz Marc’s Lying Dog in the Snow (approx. 1911), Paula Modersohn-Becker’s Lying Man under a Blooming Tree (1903), Rembrandts Self-portrait leaning against a stone wall (1639) or Johannes Vermeer’s The Geographer(1669) are thus made available for free download via the digital collection. The aim is – in line with the founding idea – to make the Städel collection accessible to the public and, furthermore, to strengthen participation in the collective cultural property.”

Auf dem Weg zur Open Access Transformation | Informationspraxis

From Google’s English:  Since 2010, the DFG program “Open Access Publishing” has been a central instrument for the institutional funding of open access publications at German universities. In the course of a DFG program evaluation, the central library of the Research Center Jülich created a data analysis that shows the publication output of the sponsored universities illuminated in 2011-2017. The results of the study lead to the following findings:

The DFG program has proven to be structuring for the funded universities, which thus have a publication fund located at the university library.
Open access publishing is a trend at German universities, as the tenfold increase in the gold open access rate at the sponsored and non-sponsored universities between 2006 and 2017 shows.
The German university publication system is still a long way from a complete open access transformation, since the proportion of closed access publications has declined little and the absolute number of closed access publications has even increased.
With a few exceptions, the level of APCs among the publishers under review increases significantly and on average exceeds the price increase rates for subscription magazines.

Recommendations for action at the end of the article show what funded institutions and funding agencies should take into account in future monitoring procedures.

Uni Kiel: Zweitveröffentlichung im Open Access

“The DeepGreen project, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), would like to facilitate the second publication of scientific journal articles. The University Library (UB) Kiel at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (CAU) is one of 52 test users of the data hub. The freely accessible publication (open access) of scientific publications often fails due to the associated hurdles. This is exactly where DeepGreen comes in: It wants to make it possible to make scientific publications largely freely available after the so-called embargo periods between publication and publication, if permitted under license law. This is done using a specially developed data hub, to be able to report scientific articles for secondary publication via the publishers and to use the publication platforms of the institutions where the authors of the articles in question are located. CAU Vice President Professor Anja Pistor-Hatam sees this as a promising development for the strategic goal of Kiel University, “to strengthen the open access publishing practice – not least with a view to the applicable law for secondary publication.” …”
