How do we provide access to the content of scholarly research information?

Author:

Fytton Rowland

Abstract

Access to published scholarly research information can be achieved in a number of ways, of which traditional subscription-based publishing is only one, and not necessarily the most preferable. Authors need visibility and impact for their work, while institutions need to be able to obtain at an affordable cost - usually through their libraries - access to all the research papers needed by staff and students. While much has been achieved by bulk deals and consortial negotiation with publishers, it is now felt that open access journals, subject repositories and institutional repositories show potential, and their further development and deployment should be encouraged. Institutions and publishers need to investigate the potential of models that allow a graceful and sustainable transition from old to new paradigms.
