A European Model for the Digital Publishing of Scientific Information?
The entire system of scholarly communication is in transition,
with the emergence of new markets, services and players. Given
what we know about this digital transition, the technical,
financial and legal parameters of a future model of publishing
scientific information are predictable. The contribution of the
Commission of the European Communities has been to emphasize how
digital access to scientific information is related to the
digital preservation of the record of scientific publications and
data; because if digital preservation is undertaken access cannot
be guaranteed for future innovations. The proposition for the
delineation of a European model is developed as follows:
1. A digital model may be developed that results in open access,
while preserving and enhancing the viability of a variety of
commercial publishing models.
2. The institutional players in the publishing system, namely
publishers, repositories and libraries, must be ready to accept a
redistribution of the key functions of registration,
certification, dissemination, archiving and navigation in a
manner that plays to the strength of each.
3. The condition for any successful elaboration of a digital
model is that it is complementary to the technology and economics
of the internet, while the litmus test is that it enhances the
impact and re-use of scientific information.
Open access publishing leads to complementary relationships
between publishers, libraries and repositories; unrestricted
access and the widest possible dissemination; and usually
facilitates the creation of value-added services as an overlay
from platforms, repositories and libraries. In recent years, a
number of viable full open access publishing (OAP) models have
emerged: OAP where the author pays, by subscription, through a
sponsoring consortium, and by way of support and sponsorship.
Covered initiatives include BMC, Sage-Hindawi, Springer, SCOAP3,
Science Commons OA law program, DRIVER, PARSE, PEER, NEEO and
policies of the ERC, NIH and Harvard FAS.
