  • Title: Dr Melissa Terras: open access and the Twitter effect « Open Access Success Stories
    Descriptive info: Dr Melissa Terras.. http://melissaterras.. blogspot.. co.. uk.. http://www.. ucl.. ac.. uk/dis/people/melissaterras.. Dr Terras is a reader in electronic communication in the.. Department of Information Studies.. ,.. University College London.. , and co-director of the.. UCL Centre for Digital Humanities.. UCL has a progressive open access policy, requiring a copy of all research outputs to be deposited in its institutional repository,.. UCL Discovery.. In October 2011 Dr Terras decided to.. blog about.. each of her refereed papers how the research came about, what the outcomes were, and link to the full text of the papers themselves – as she deposited them.. She soon discovered an interesting effect, demonstrated by one paper in particular.. Her 2009 paper, Digital Curiosities: Resource Creation Via Amateur Digitisation (Literary and Linguistic Computing, 25 (4) 425 – 438) had been downloaded twice since she deposited it in UCL Discovery.. She then blogged and tweeted about it and almost immediately saw the number of downloads rise to 140.. In a.. blog post.. a few weeks later she notes that All in all, it s been downloaded 535 times since it went live, from all over the world: USA (163), UK (107), Germany (14), Australia (10), Canada (10), and the long tail of beyond: Belgium, France, Ireland Netherlands, Japan, Spain, Greece, Italy, South Africa, Mexico, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Europe, UAE, unknown.. Three weeks later and, as a result of that further blog post, downloads passed the 800 mark.. By April 2012 it had been downloaded over a thousand times, and by Open Access Week 2012 it has been downloaded 1212 times.. It was the.. 16th most downloaded paper.. from UCL s repository in the final quarter of 2011, and the third most downloaded paper in UCL’s arts faculty in the past year.. While the paper is freely accessible from the UCL s repository, it is also available behind a paywall in the closed access journal in  ...   users of digital resources in the humanities:.. 297 downloads.. Documentation and the users of digital resources in the humanities:.. 209 downloads.. If you build it will they come? The LAIRAH study: Quantifying the use of online resources in the arts and humanities through statistical analysis of user log data:.. 142 downloads.. The Master Builders: LAIRAH research on good practice in the construction of digital humanities projects:.. 12 downloads.. But to tweet open access research does not necessarily equal instant success.. Firstly, timing is important with social media, says Dr Terras.. Tweet during the day when people are online, not at midnight on the weekend.. The best time is between 11am and 5pm GMT, Monday to Thursday in a working week.. And secondly, of course, simply tweeting links to research into a void is unlikely to produce great results.. A good social media strategy takes time and commitment, it requires engagement and the building up of a digital presence.. It s not a path every academic would choose to tread.. However, what is clear is that this path would not be for any academic were it not for open access.. “Social Media’s relationship with Open Access has to be part of the continuum of research activity” says Dr Terras.. “You can spend years producing a research paper, why would you not spend the time it takes to deposit it in an open access repository, and the seconds it takes to share that copy online with as many people as you possibly can”?..

  • Title: The GIGA journal family « Open Access Success Stories
    Descriptive info: Long-established subscription journals move smoothly to open access.. http://hup.. sub.. uni-hamburg.. de/giga/journal-family/.. What is it?.. The GIGA journal family consists of four well-established flagship journals on Africa, Latin America, China and Southeast Asia, published by the German Institute of Global and Area Studies (GIGA) in Hamburg.. In 2009 they all became open access publications.. How is it a success?.. Bert Hoffmann.. The four GIGA journals, the earliest of which was first published in 1966, were all well-respected closed , or print-and-pay, journals.. Between them they had a total base of 1800 subscribers providing around €100,000 in gross revenue.. In 2009 they were smoothly transitioned into successful open access journals.. Within the first five months of being open access, 28,000 articles were downloaded.. In 2011 that figure reached 103,843.. How did this transformation come about? Following an internal reorganisation at the GIGA research centre, its publication strategy was in need of a radical overhaul.. The GIGA journals had to become more dynamic and more international.. Moving to open access was one of the options on the table and it won.. Why?.. The GIGA felt that were four good reasons for taking the open route.. It would enable it to become a journal publisher with global reach, better able to compete with the dominant commercial publishers while enhancing the journals attractiveness for international partners, co-editors and authors.. Secondly, the GIGA wanted to reach out more effectively to the academic communities in the mostly low income communities that are the object of its studies.. Thirdly, due to changing priorities, the journals needed to move from being mainly German-language publications to being internationally oriented, peer-reviewed, strictly academic journals, and so a significant part of the traditional subscriber base might be lost in any case.. In more general terms, the GIGA decided to seek academic prestige over monetary revenues.. Finally, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) s support for open access proved crucial, along with its grant supporting the transition.. The decision was taken to adopt open access as a hybrid model, fully maintaining the print version and subscription model for those interested while at the same time putting the full content online without time delay.. The subscription rates stayed traditionally low and, in the first full year of open access availability, no journal s cancellation rate exceeded 20%.. To ensure a smooth transition, the GIGA teamed up with Hamburg University Press (Hamburg UP).. The GIGA is responsible for all content and editorial work including the production of the final PDF  ...   in place to accompany the open access launch of the journals.. The key mechanism was a targeted strategy to activate the GIGA’s existing scholarly networks.. This included, aside from press releases, mailings and flyers, numerous personal contacts, promotion within area studies organisations, as well as a presence at book fairs and key conferences.. High-level conferences and panels sponsored by the journals directly reached the target audience of not only readers but also of authors.. In the case of the Journal of Latin American Politics, a GIGA-organised kick-off conference went a long way in anchoring the journal in its new format in the international scholarly community, and many conference papers by renowned authors were submitted to the first open access issues of the journal.. All the journals of the GIGA Journal Family went online in full open access in spring of 2009.. According to the GIGA s Bert Hoffmann, who saw the journals through their successful transition, worldwide visibility of the journals has made a giant leap.. Access data has been growing steadily.. The journals have been taken up by major search engines, databases and repositories.. At the same time, the print journals maintain their physical presence and much of their subscriber base so that the article downloads via the website simply increase the journals’ reach rather than merely displacing the print versions.. Looking to the future and the GIGA is working on the retrodigitisation of the journals’ back issues and their integration into the GIGA Journal Family website and open access repositories.. A key benchmark will be whether the journals achieve inclusion in the Thompson ISI Social Science Citation Index and similar rating systems.. Africa Spectrum has become the first to be listed in the SSCI.. In the end, the principal task is to strive for the journals’ scholarly excellence and their recognition as prestigious international journals.. After all, making journals that are open access an academic success will be the best way to promote open access acceptance in the social science community, says Hoffmann.. Notes.. With thanks to Bert Hoffmann.. Some of this story has been adapted from his manuscript for the DFG, The GIGA Journal Family Experience: Making the Transition from Print to Open Access (2010).. The four journals in the GIGA family are:.. Africa Spectrum (first published in 1966).. Journal of Current Chinese Affiars (first published in 1972 as China aktuell).. Journal of Politics in Latin America (first published in 2009).. Journal of Currrent Southeast Asian Affairs (first published in 1982)..
