Evaluating Publisher Open Access Agreements

peter.suber's bookmarks 2022-05-20


Abstract: Librarians are highly experienced in analyzing subscription renewal offers. However, more often libraries are receiving offers from publishers for agreements that incorporate fees for "read" access (i.e., traditional subscription access) with open access "publish" payments. In this workshop, we will provide participants with an overview of types of transformative agreements and factors to consider when analyzing offers that include an open access component. These will be applied to scenarios from different types of publishers. If time, there will be a hands-on portion in which participants will learn how to access usage data beyond COUNTER reports. This will include accessing APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) via OpenRefine. The workshop will build on materials created by SPARC's Data Analysis for Negotiation Working Group (https://sparcopen.org/our-work/negotiation-resources/dataanalysis/).
