FACT Seminars are concerned with the Fundamentals, dealing with breaking news Advances and Changes in Technology as they affect STM publishing and publishers.

Scope

The global growth of Gold Open Access publishing, especially in the UK where it has become Government policy, poses challenges to STM publishers in the field of copyright and licensing. Until recently, apart from being free to read and copy in a non-commercial environment, Gold OA articles have had a similar copyright status to their subscription cousins. Now research funding bodies are demanding more for paying to publish, some adopting policies whereby CC-BY licences are a requirement of payment. What will this mean for publishers? What is the landscape of rights options? How could the nascent Gold OA business model be affected? How might authors react? What will happen to reprints and secondary rights income? How will publishers and Collective Management Societies respond?

Who should attend?

Publishing executives, rights managers, legal staff and allied staff in Collective Management Societies.

Chiaroscuro: the light and shadow of CC BY in the context of Social Science, Arts and Humanities (SSAH)
The CC BY licence is widely hailed as the best means to achieve ‘true’ open access. It has also been widely criticised. I will use the concept of ‘chiaroscuro’ to argue why the licence may not be suited to SSAH, and to highlight the need for a balance between enabling the reuse of research and preserving authors’ rights in their work.

Creative Commons and the Physical sciences

Scientific research is about testing theories and/or producing high quality data to be shared and used by others for the advancement of science. Fundamental research does not always have an immediate commercial return. In this context publishing under a CC-BY licence would not appear to affect how scientists work but are there wider implications to consider? I will discuss some of the initial feedback I have received and the practical questions arising so far.
