MANDATES Stuart Hunt Uncovering researcher behaviours and engagement with Open Access Oxford Brookes University, 20th May 2015 PROJECT AIMS Provide a relevant, scalable, & practical set of tools that will support the researcher within their own specific context, enabling them to conform to funder mandates as an integral part of the research workflow. Enable Oxford Brookes & associate institutions to
conform to funder requirements in a way that supports the researcher. PROJECT PARTNERS Oxford Brookes University Nottingham Trent University University of Portsmouth DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES Institutional understanding of OA & compliance Researchers understanding OA & compliance

2/6/20 22 The research landscape at NTU NTU is divided into three Colleges, which are subdivided into nine Academic Schools. The Universitys legacy is largely learning and teaching with a mixture of traditional and vocational courses. NTU has world-leading research in certain fields such as cancer research and social policy but its not a research intensive university. The University strategic aim is to grow its research environment, with School research plans
including targets to increase the number of PGR students over the next five years. 2/6/20 23 What we did at NTU Conducted a small-scale survey based on semistructured interviews. Interviewed 50 researchers over two months. Recorded the interviews, wrote up the notes, and coded the answers using Google Forms to draw out the main findings. Exported the results to an Excel spreadsheet to create profile charts and analyse trends through pivot tables.
Participants were mostly researchers who submitted to REF2014. 2/6/20 24 Profile of the researchers interviewed 2/6/20 25 Interview questions broad
themes Dissemination How do they decide to disseminate research? Do they have a dissemination strategy? Publishing What factors are the most important when considering where to publish? Open access What do they understand by open access, including the difference between green and gold? Do they understand how OA will affect the next REF? What do they think are the benefits of OA?
Are they aware of any funder requirements regarding OA? Do they publish regularly through OA? If not, why not? How can the University help them to publish more regularly through OA? 2/6/20 26 Sample findings Several researchers were aware of embargoes with the green option A few thought gold is best (but werent sure in what way)
2/6/20 27 2/6/20 28 2/6/20 29 2/6/20
30 2/6/20 31 A couple of researchers cited lack of academic standing as the only barrier Lack of funding related to the fact most researchers associate open access with APCs 2/6/20
32 What does this mean for us? The Library Research Team at NTU has created a communication plan to address the barriers, especially around lack of understanding of copyright and processes As a project group we were hoping to find one barrier to address, but the responses have revealed a wide range of answers 2/6/20
33 What we might have done with hindsight differently Designed the form to capture the responses before conducting the interviews The form was designed on examining too few responses Ensured the interviewers interpreted the responses in the same way Asked more direct questions, e.g. What makes you publish in OA? 2/6/20
34 Making Sense at Portsmouth Andrew Simpson & Emily Bennett University Library Research and Innovation Services Interviews Semi-structured, informal conversations Started with research leads 11 across all faculties interviewed by our Research Outputs Manager
Then extended to academics interviewed by their subject librarians 4 interviewed in Creative Technologies so far Though sample is small, we have learned a great deal through having the opportunity for open conversations Findings Broadly aware of OA and accepted its importance for the REF, RCUK etc. but not aware of the details and their implications Common misunderstandings Didnt consider OA in publication strategy before submitting Difference between OA and hybrid journals
Difference between the 3 month rule and embargoes Assumed you can always take the green route to comply Not aware of the high cost of APCs Dont know what REF panel they will be submitting to Just want to know what they have to do to comply Actions Some common issues were quickly apparent and actions were taken to address these The interviews also helped inform our ongoing activities with awareness raising Some examples
OA awareness plan It was clear no single approach to awareness was going to work So ensured we had a plan with a variety of methods OA sessions
People were happy to attend university wide presentations if at a time they could do OA sessions increased to every 6 weeks at various times Smaller groups Part of general Researcher Development Programme Flow chart - A number requested a one
page printable flow-chart so we created one System They found current mix of systems confusing Reinforced our move to a single portal The interviews also led to some
tailored support We analysed samples (approximately 50) of our Business School and Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation journals. Results demonstrated most but not all journals comply with HEFCE or RCUK via the green route, so there is a need to check before submitting. This helped reinforce the message that they do need to consider where to publish at an early stage, whilst keeping the limitations in perspective We were able to identify staff who already added items to ArXiv and set-up an import to Pure
We were able to set up reports and dashboards in Pure for research leads Individual help The vast majority of people do want to be able to contact someone for advice We have promoted email help We do not validate recent articles without a postprint and so deal with queries at published stage Now starting to get more questions at an earlier stage asking about which journals comply All takes time though! http://www.port.ac.uk/library/help/research/open/

Grand Tour Tell me about your research How do researchers communicate their research? What triggers them to publish?
How do they choose where to publish? Mini Tour What are you working on the moment? How has the experience been so far? What Next?

experiencing (10 mins) OA Understanding what needs to change and how 2. Group reviews all problems and group them as a. Problem from university perspective (e.g. academics dont deposit) b. Problem from researcher perspective (e.g. academics unclear on Green vs Gold) c. If both, break it down into what the problem is for each (20 mins) OA
Understanding what needs to change and how 3. Group identifies top 3 university problems and top 3 researcher problems: discussion - are they the same problems? Are there additional problems? (10 mins) 4. Group selects top 3 researcher problems to take forward to the afternoon session (10 mins) Time for lunch In the Lounge on the Ground floor Back in Chakrabati Room (2nd floor) 1.20
