 ** Jisc Collections - OAPEN project for OA monograph services

------------------------------------------------------------



OAPEN is pleased to announce a new pilot project in partnership with Jisc
Collections, to co-design and set up a centralised service with UK
universities to support and encourage the publication of Open Access (OA)
peer-reviewed monographs.



In recent years OA scholarly monographs have gained considerable momentum,
and the number of OA monographs being published worldwide has shown a
marked increase. The EU has included research monographs in their OA policy
for Horizon 2020, including a pilot to enable funding of OA publications
after the grant period. In the UK the Wellcome Trust is the first UK-based
funder to extend its OA mandate to monographs and chapters; universities
are engaged in OA monograph publishing or encouraging OA for monographs;
OAPEN-UK is an ongoing project to gather evidence on the potential for OA
monograph publishing; and finally, the Arts and Humanities Research Council
and the British Library are launching a research project about "The
Academic Book of the Future".



OAPEN (http://www.oapen.org/home) offers OA infrastructure for book
publishing in a number of ways, including quality assurance; aggregation
and deposit of OA publications; discovery and dissemination; digital
preservation of OA books; reporting and statistics.



Jisc Collections (https://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/) is a division of
Jisc Collections and Janet Ltd. It supports the procurement of digital
content for education and research in the UK, and manages a large number of
research projects addressing innovative resource creation and provision.



The pilot will be conducted with universities that have an interest in OA
monographs =E2=80=93 as university-based publishers, consumers, or supporte=
rs. The
project is being prepared in consultation with SCONUL and RLUK and other
stakeholders, in particular research funders and independent publishers,
will also be involved.



The pilot will be carried out on co-design principles =E2=80=93 to ensure i=
t can
meet the needs of universities and provide evidence of demand.  It aims to
set up and test central services, prioritising the following main functions=
:

* support quality assurance of OA books;

* aggregation and deposit of OA books and chapters;

* improve dissemination and discovery of OA books;

* report about OA policies and usage



The project has three separate stages with the following deliverables:

* Stage 1: Research phase =E2=80=93 Workshop; report on evidence for the va=
lue of a
potential service; project plan;

* Stage 2: Explore central services - Specification of potential
operational services for UK universities; development of pilot(s);

* Stage 3: Evaluation and implementation plan - Evaluation of project
results; report on recommendations; business plan for the creation and
sustaining of a centralised service.



The pilot project, funded by Jisc Collections, starts this month and will
continue for one year. The goal is to establish a set of centralised
services for UK universities to support OA monographs.
