The research access/impact problem arises because journal articles are not accessible to all of their would-be users; hence, they are losing potential research impact. The solution is to make all articles Open Access (OA; i.e., accessible online, free for all). OA articles have significantly higher citation impact than non-OA articles. There are tw...

An unfortunate tendency has arisen to equate Open Access itself with Open Access journal publishing. But there is more than this one, golden, road to Open Access: there is the faster, surer and more heavily travelled green road. We think that authors may be confusing the journal-affordability problem with the access/impact problem. Let us hope that...

This report contains three parts. Part 1 presents an overview of the evolution of the Republic of Korea scientific and technological (S-T) papers and patents (1980-1995) and a more detailed analysis of the recent evolution (1991-1995). Part 2 analyses the scientific collaboration of Korea with other countries while Part 3 focuses on the collaborati...

... Gold OA refers to publishing an article in an OA journal and immediately making it freely available on its website (van der Heyden and van Veen, 2017). Green OA refers to the practice of self-archiving (Harnad et al., 2008), where journal publishers allow authors to make their accepted manuscripts freely available by depositing them in the subject or Institutional Repositories (IRs) (Bj€ ork, 2017). In the hybrid OA model, articles published in subscription journals are instantly free to read under an open license in return for an article processing charge (APC) paid by authors (Laakso and Bj€ ork, 2013). ...
... Algunas de estas herramientas han sido desarrolladas por los propios científicos con el objetivo de tener en cuenta los aspectos que han conllevado al crecimiento exponencial de la ciencia en la era digital y medir de manera adecuada los nuevos comportamientos de los investigadores en el entorno web, para incorporar la influencia e impacto social de la investigación, incluso se ha llegado a plantear que el impacto social puede tener correlación con el futuro impacto científico. Ya en el año 2004 autores como Tim Brody empezaron a correlacionar las descargas de un documento en un repositorio en acceso abierto con las citas recibidas (Brody & Charles, 2004). Así, en el año 2010 apareció la publicación "Altmetrics: a manifiesto" que establece las bases para lo que se ha denominado "métricas a nivel de artículo" o altmetrics ; es decir, un sistema de evaluación científica que focaliza el impacto de la investigación basándose en la calidad del propio artículo más que en la revista en la que aparece publicado como ocurre en la bibliometría tradicional. ...

Pour de plus amples informations et conjointement aux références déjà citées, nous renvoyons le lecteur aux publications suivantes : Fournier, Germain, Lamarche et Maheu (1975), et Gingras (1984), relativement à la notion de champ scientifique québécois ; Godin, Archambault et Vallières (2000), pour ce qui est de la production scientifique au Québec entre 1980Québec entre et 1996Godin (2002), au sujet des revues savantes québécoises et des pratiques de publication des chercheurs au tournant des années 2000 ; Paquin (2013), pour une réflexion plus récente sur le libre accès. ...
... Authors of OA journals can make their research work public in one of two ways: including Gold Open Access, which means publishing in an OA journal in which authors sometimes pays a publication fee. The Green Open Access is that in which authors "self-archiving" a supplementary copy of the article/s that is freely accessible to all on the Web, usually when LM the embargo period is over (Harnad et al., 2004). Gold open access journals initially appeared in the 1990s, and since then the OA journals in different fields took a steady growth (Gargouri et al., 2012). ...
... Many of the early researchers in the domain of open access indicator reported the problems of obtaining OA related data against the publications of a given institute that can help to measure values beyond OA publications share (Bar-Ilan, 2008;Hajjem et al., 2005;Harnad et al., 2004Harnad et al., , 2008. The present technological advancements like API based data wrangling, JSON-formatted data responses, availability of open source data carpentry software, emergence of large-scale ODbL-powered data sources like Unpaywall, Dimension, OpenCitations, Crossref, Altmetric.com ...
... It is often used as a measure of the impact an article has had within its particular field. For instance, if an article is widely read and cited, it indicates the article has had influence on other researchers and research within the field (Brody et al., 2004). DSpace: The DSpace institutional repository system is open source software (written in Java) for building and managing digital repositories. ...
... The affordability problem of scholarly publishing, i.e., the supra-inflationary price increases with stagnating library budgets, has been a hot topic for more than three decades (see, e.g., [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]. In recent years, perhaps precipitated by some so-called 'gold' open access (OA) journals requiring payments in the form of article-processing charges (APCs; fees for authors or their institutions upon acceptance for publishing an article and making it openly available), the average cost of an article has emerged as a useful measure with which to compare different business models (but see 9 for a critique). ...
