Open Access & Lirias
• Some people are obliged to provide Open Access
•
IUAP (from 2013 onwards)
• FWO (from 2011 onwards)
• ERC/Some FP7 (clausule 39) (from 2007/2008 onwards)
• All future Horizon 2020 projects
• KU Leuven: promotes OA for peer-reviewed papers
Open Access removes barriers to research
• Fast
• Free
• World-wide
• Information online
Open Access increases visibility & impact…
• Pool of users (‘citers’) = global => citation advantage
Two roads to Open Access
Open
Access
Gold
paid
Green
free

Gold road to Open Access implies that
o
o
o
you publish in an OA journal
your article is online immediately
the publisher takes care of everything
Gold Open Access journals listing
o
A list of OAJ = DOAJ http://www.doaj.org/
Gold Open Access journals are often new journals
• Only 11% of journals in JCR is OA
• However, most ‘traditional’ journals offer article-based OA
o
for a fee
• 100s-1000s euro per article
Two roads to Open Access

The more democratic Green road to OA
• Self-archiving in an institutional OA repository
o
e.g. Lirias
o
You upload (a version of) the paper and make it publicly
available
It does not cost you
o
… is also proposed by FWO, ERC, BELSPO
• ERC: an electronic copy … be deposited in a suitable repository immediately
upon publication. Open access should be provided as soon as possible and
in any case no later than six months after the official publication date.
o For publications in the Social Sciences and Humanities domain a delay of
up to twelve months is acceptable.
• FWO: beneficianten van mandaten, kredieten en projecten zijn verplicht hun
publicaties, die voortvloeien uit de FWO-toelagen, te deponeren in een
publieke “Open Access” databank. Dit ten laatste één jaar na de
publicatiedatum.

OA obligation ≠ paying for OA!
• Use ‘our’ Open Access repository
• It’s called Lirias!
Why use Lirias?
•
•
•
•
It is free
It is managed for you
Lirias is widely consulted
Data are highly visible on the net
Green Road to Open Access: what about
copyright?
o
The bad news is
• authors usually transfer their copyright to their publisher
o
The good news is
• a large number of scientific publishers allow the Green Road for certain
versions of the articles, possibly under an embargo
Finding copyright information
• SHERPA/RoMEO http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/
• Overview of copyright policies and self-archiving permissions
• Colour-coded
Pre-print = version before peer review
Post-print = version after peer review (final author’s
version)
Publisher’s version = version with publisher’s layout
– although mentioned in the definition of blue & green, almost never allowed
Most publishers allow self-archiving
More than 60% of publishers
allows last author version of
article in OA
An example
Open Access in theological journals
• Most journals do not have an OA-policy
• Some exceptions in SherpaRomeo
o
o
o
o
Augustinian Studies: yellow
Hervormde Teologiese Studies: blue, with publishers’ PDF!
Journal of Religious Education: yellow
The Heythrop Journal: yellow, with permission from publisher
if CTA has been signed; possibly embargo
OA obligation? Make your best effort!
seek information on copyright/licensing
policies (e.g. Sherpa/Romeo)
negotiate amendment or request
authorisation to self-archive
If negotiations are unsuccessful,
consider submitting to another journal
inform the Commission and provide
publisher’s letter of refusal

Practical Workflow for Green Open Access
• Once a paper is accepted, check SHERPA/RoMEO
• “green/blue”: upload your final peer-reviewed manuscript,
mention source & link to publisher’s website (don’t use the layout of the
publisher unless explicitly allowed)
• check when you can make the paper available (pre-publication, postpublication, embargo ?) &
set the access to “public” accordingly
• “yellow/white” or not in SHERPA/RoMEO: upload the publisher’s
PDF with limited access (or an earlier version of your article)
Use Lirias for Green Open Access
• Accessibility options:
•
•
•
•
Public (=OA): everybody can see and download the file
Intranet : only staff from the Association have access
Embargo: Intranet until chosen date, then Public
Private: only the authors and the administrators have access
Choose the OA-layout for your CV
Choose the OA-layout for your CV
Some words of caution
• ResearchGate, Mendeley, etc.
o
o
you are responsible for what you upload
always check SherpaRomeo!
• Predatory publishers
o
dubious standards, misleading information
• Website: http://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/
Conclusion
• always choose the ‘best’ journal for your paper
• keep in mind that +60% publishers accept post-review green
OA
• be aware that files with intranet accessibility are only accessible
for Association KU Leuven staff
o files are visible on the intranet, but interested parties cannot
open them!
• trace the impact of your paper
