NewsEfforts to give the public free access to peer-reviewed papers have reached a milestone: One-half of all papers are now freely available within a year or two of publication concludes a study funded by the European Commission and released today That means so-called open-access publishing has reached a “tipping point” and will now accelerate suggests ric Archambault the lead author of the study and president of Science-Metrix Inc in Montreal Canada “Things are likely to move much faster now” But some open-access observers have been quick to criticize the study which yielded a number twice as high as other analyses The findings come as open access is set to expand: This week (22 August) US science agencies are due to send the White House draft plans describing how they will make government-funded research papers freely available generally within 12 months of publication And the European Commission will soon require that most articles it funds be free within 6 months The new “findings underline that open access is here to stay” said Máire Geoghegan-Quinn European commissioner for research innovation and science in a statement The open-access movement took off more than a decade ago when some scientists began pushing to make full-text papers free Today some papers are published in journals that make papers immediately free upon publication and cover costs by charging authors a fee Some other papers published in traditional subscription-based journals are made freely available on an author’s website or through an institutional or government archive often after a 6- or 12-month “embargo” imposed by the publisher to protect subscription revenue (Research papers in Science are free with registration after 12 months and authors can post copies sooner) Like other analysts Archambault defines papers published in immediately free journals as the “gold” version of open access and those posted in archives sometimes after a delay as “green”; other forms his team dubbed “hybrid” To find out how many gold green and hybrid papers are now available Archambault and his colleagues randomly sampled 320000 papers published between 2004 and 2011 drawn from Scopus a database They then built a software robot that scoured the Internet and online archives in April 2013 for the full text Unlike some other analysts they included papers that are only temporarily free (such as a journal’s sample issue) As a check they also manually searched for 500 papers revealing that the robot had missed a few After correcting for this error the Science-Metrix group concluded that open access reached a 50% “tipping point” in 2011 meaning that one-half of the papers published that year are now freely available The team also found that the proportion of gold papers grew from about 4% of all papers in 2004 to 12% in 2011 (see graph) Over the same period the share of green and hybrid papers hovered around 34% then fell to about 32% That decline probably reflects the fact that more recently published papers hadn’t yet come out from under embargo Archambault says Overall he notes the number of open-access papers has been growing by about 2% a year and the absolute total jumps each year as journals and authors make batches of old papers free Such numbers haven’t persuaded other analysts that open access is making a historic transition “Eric has given us good news about access not open access” says Stevan Harnad of the University of Quebec in Montreal who thinks that delayed access shouldn’t count Bo-Christer Bjrk of the Hanken School of Economics in Helsinki who’s calculated a smaller number says that for methodological reasons he’s “not fully convinced” that the 50% figure is valid However he says that the study is “important” and will be influential—but not necessarily in the way the authors hope: It may prompt subscription publishers to lengthen embargoes and tighten enforcement One publisher says that even if the 50% number is real publishing hasn’t necessarily reached a tipping point Fred Dylla executive director of the American Institute of Physics in College Park Maryland argues that open access is expanding because it’s being driven by public policy mandates not favorable economics For that reason “I don’t see us reaching the top of a hill and now rushing to the bottom It’s more like the slope is getting smaller” he says However imperfect the Archambault analysis is welcome says open-access advocate Peter Suber director of Harvard University’s Office for Scholarly Communication It shows that open access “has entered the mainstream” he says “When we’re on a long journey we have a right to celebrate when the odometer rolls over at some round number of miles even if we’re perfectly aware that the round number is somewhat arbitrary” A longer version of this article appears in this week’s print issue of Science After receiving pledges totaling more than its goal of $100 million by a year-end deadline the Ecuadorian government last week announced that it would move forward with the so-called Yasuni ITT Initiative an innovative plan to leave untapped more than 900 million barrels of crude oil beneath a pristine Amazonian nature reserve in exchange for annual international donations Last summer there were fears that Germany would back away from a nearly $50 million pledge to the effort but $116 million in contributions has now been collected from it other foreign governments individuals and foundations according to Ivonne Baki the head of the Yasuni ITT Initiative "We’ve created amazing momentum" says Baki That momentum will be needed as the Ecuadorian government has now set a new goal of securing $291 million in contributions in both 2012 and 2013 to keep the initiative going Launched in mid-2010 after 3 years of technical consultation the Yasuni ITT project was lauded by foreign governments and environmental groups as an innovative way to fight global warming: Not exploiting the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini (ITT) oilfields in Yasuni National Park will according to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) prevent the emissions of around 410 million metric tons of carbon dioxide—equivalent to the annual emissions of France and accounting for 20% of Ecuador’s known oil reserves The project could also prevent the extermination of at least two indigenous tribes that live in voluntary isolation while conserving a forested area that scientists say is the most biodiverse place on earth But for a variety of reasons donor countries initially declined to support the initiative which is supposed to be financed through a trust fund overseen by UNDP Many have questioned commitment of Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa citing expanded oil and mining in other parts of the Amazon Still another impediment has been fear that the initiative’s "avoided emissions" strategy would lead to similar plans being considered as part of future global warming/climate change treaty negotiations This last concern appeared to scare off Germany’s Secretary for Economic Cooperation and Development Gudrun Kopp who in June 2011 told a German parliamentary commission that "a direct payment into a fund of this type would set a precedent that could ultimately prove very costly" Per the agreement signed with UNDP however Yasuni’s precedent is "very limited in scale" says Pamela Martin author of Oil in the Soil: The Politics of Paying to Preserve the Amazon It only applies to countries situated between the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer which have tropical forests a certified high level of biodiversity and a credible program for investment in sustainable energy programs she notes Germany is now tentatively back in the initiative agreeing to a one-time nonrefundable commitment of $47 million in bilateral technical assistance to be paid over 3 years The contribution is not an all out endorsement of Correa’s vision say analysts because Germany’s monies will not pass through the UNDP Trust Fund but will be invested instead directly in the park The other funding committed to the Ecuadorian Government amounted to approximately $69 million including pledges from provincial governments such as the Belgian region of Wallonia and the French department of Meurthe-et-Moselle The Initiative was previously open to only governments and corporations pledging more $100000 Now individuals and businesses wishing to contribute amounts as small as $25 may become involved In Ecuador Baki notes a recent poll indicates that nearly 90% of the public approves of the project Baki says the next step is to launch an aggressive advertising social networking and promotional campaign focused on Europe North America and Australasia Insiders say the new strategy is an attempt to put public pressure on elected officials while also drawing upon the financial resources and discontent of a global population that finds itself increasingly frustrated with slow-paced climate negotiations "The next 2 years are going to be telling because we know there is now finally a budget to carry out a real publicity campaign" says Kevin Koenig the Amazon oil campaign coordinator for Amazon Watch based in Quito Koenig says environmental campaigners are deeply concerned about stepped up drilling plans in other parts of the Ecuadorian Amazon but they see merit in supporting the Yasuni Initiative as a means by which to enable Ecuador to extricate itself from its current "oil debt trap" At present Ecuador relies upon oil income for more than half of its annual export revenue "If the world is so concerned about preserving biodiversity protecting indigenous rights and trying to find solutions to climate change this proposal merits support" he adds "It’s not perfect but regardless it’s important for Ecuador and the world" “We caution against over-interpretation, Ravinder Kumar.
