e' stato pubblicato il 16 maggio il Rapporto di Knowledge Exchange *Knowledge
Exchange consensus on monitoring Open Access publications and cost data *(

Alcune raccomandazioni tratte dall'Executive Summary, per monitorare:
1) *le pubblicazioni Open Access*
`` Standards and common definitions are crucial
`` Standards already exist to a large extent, eg in Common European
Research Information Format (CERIF) and Open Archives Initiative Protocol
for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH)
`` If new standards are needed they should be added to the existing
`` With the standards and definitions in place, policies and agreements can
require publishers to deliver data in ways that make the workflows open and
`` Current Research Information Systems (CRIS’s) can be used as sources for
monitoring OA publications and ensure that the monitoring data is open
through open API’s (application programming interface) so that monitoring
results can be validated, thus ensuring transparency and reproducibility
`` Finally, libraries should play an active role in this area
2)* I costi delle pubblicazioni Open Access*
`` Accounting systems and CRIS’s are central to the topic
`` These systems should be interoperable and aligned so that cost data at
all levels can be easily retrieved
`` The data should be open and shareable
`` The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a key tool for data transferal
between systems giving Crossref an important role in the workflow
`` Publishers should be required to enter all funder data in the
publication metadata as well as in the publications themselves
`` Such requirements should be embedded in offsetting or licensing
contracts with the publishers
`` Non-disclosure regulations in these contracts should be avoided at all
`` Total costs of publication (TCP) is a key concept. It is important to
dissect the costs of publishing carefully. The Article Processing Charge
(APC) does not necessarily cover all costs, eg administrative costs,
infrastructural costs, special extra charges set by the publishers on a per
publication basis etc
`` Transparency and access to the cost data is crucial

Inutile dire che l'Italia e' assente.
Buona giornata
