Abstract

Within the context of the Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy (CREATe) research scope, this literature review investigates the current trends, advantages, disadvantages, problems and solutions, opportunities and barriers in Open Access Publishing (OAP), and in particular Open Access (OA) academic publishing. This study is intended to scope and evaluate current theory and practice concerning models for OAP and engage with intellectual, legal and economic perspectives on OAP. It is also aimed at mapping the field of academic publishing in the UK and abroad, drawing specifically upon the experiences of CREATe industry partners as well as other initiatives such as SSRN, open source software, and Creative Commons. As a final critical goal, this scoping study will identify any meaningful gaps in the relevant literature with a view to developing further research questions. The results of this scoping exercise will then be presented to relevant industry and academic partners at a workshop intended to assist in further developing the critical research questions pertinent to OAP.

Main Results of the Study

  • The current economic crisis in academic publishing, caused by the increase in price of academic journals, has led to the increasing use of new and more open models of publishing, and the de-commodification of academic publishing.
  • Open Access and Open Access Publishing have the potential to relieve, at least in part, both these aspects of the unresolved and recently heightened tension between access and protection.
  • Copyright protects the rights of the publisher and is not predominately a factor in the motivation of the author of published research. Motivation will principally be reputation based.
  • Universities and government research bodies are increasingly moving to an Open Access Mandate for published research. This should eventually lead to an environment where the predominate model is Open Access. In order to make sure that similar problems of economic imbalance between authors and publishers arise in the future, policy makers should carefully assess the Green and Gold models to ensure continued academic freedom and equitable access

Policy Implications as Stated By Author

Open Access Mandates are increasingly adopted by universities and research bodies producing research studies. In order to ensure academic freedom is maintained, careful analysis is needed of the Green and Gold models of Open Access.
