Economics of open access publishing

RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) is a collaborative effort of hundreds of volunteers in 67 countries to enhance the dissemination of research in economics. The describe the heart of the project as "a decentralized database of working papers, journal articles and software components.

They have just posted on their excellent blog - the following on open access publishing.

"Open Access Publishing is the free distribution of research, whether it is as a pre-print (working paper) or a peer-reviewed article. Since the creation of the web, more and more journal are choosing open access as their business model.

One of them was recently Economic Analysis and Policy, published by the Economic Society of Australia (Queensland). To celebrate this, EAP has just published a special issue dedicated to the Economics of Open Access Publishing.

Articles are written by economists discussing their experience with open access as well as by others involved in open access publishing.

They cover the transition the publishing industry is currently undergoing, the surprisingly low cost of publishing an open access journal, the impact of open access and various open source aspects of the open access.

Open access is a topic dear to my heart, as I know it is to others. Here in New Zealand the KRIS project is worth a look. KRIS aims is to make it easy for people to access publicly available research produced in New Zealand institutions where people can search across a range of research repositories.

I would also be keen to hear of any Museums, Galleries and Libraries who are publishing their research under open access rules?

Would be happy to link to others sources to this post if people want me to tell me about them?


Thanks for tweet on RePEc from HM - legend!
