Open access and institutional repositories: an evidence-based approach

Author:

Martin Richardson

Abstract

Oxford Journals are conducting experiments with partial open access publishing (Journal of Experimental Botany), full open access publishing (Nucleic Acids Research), institutional repositories (SHERPA) and subject repositories (PubMed Central). Initial results regarding open access have been encouraging, in that usage appears to have increased, but it is unclear whether open access publishing can be viable without support from institutional subscriptions. Early evidence suggests that free availability of articles through repositories also leads to increased usage but may have a detrimental impact on subscription revenues.
