Kraven från många lärosäten att forskarna ska deponera sina manuskript
till publicerade artiklar
i dom lokala arkiven är uppenbarligen en björntjänst och en i grunden
felaktig strategi.

Styrgruppen för programmet har antagit ett uttalande om Elseviers
ändrade policy för parallellpublicering.

På hemsidan skriver man

Styrgruppen för har antagit ett uttalande om Elseviers
ändrade policy för parallellpublicering.

I uttalandet vänder sig styrgruppen starkt emot Elseviers nya krav vad
gäller på separata avtal om författarrättigheter och uppmanar Elsevier
att släppa detta krav. Styrgruppen rekommenderar vidare svenska
lärosäten med open access-krav att inte ingå särskilda lokala avtal
med Elsevier, utan istället hänvisa frågan till diskussioner inom
ramen för det nationella licensavtalet med Elsevier.

Elsevier kräver särskilda avtal med lärosätet

Elsevier tillåter att författare lägger ut en kopia av sin artikel på
en egen webbsida eller i ett öppet arkiv. Nu säger man att detta inte
gäller om det finns ett open access-krav att lägga ut artiklar i ett
specifikt öppet arkiv. Då kräver Elsevier ett särskilt avtal med
lärosätet eller forskningsfinansiären, vilket kan innebära att
tillgängligheten dröjer.

Kraven skapar osäkerhet om författares rättigheter

Elseviers nya policy berör, enligt styrgruppens tolkning, enbart de
lärosäten som kräver att forskarna ska göra sina artiklar fritt
tillgängliga i lärosätets öppna arkiv. Däremot berörs inte svenska
forskningsfinansiärer med open access-krav, eftersom de inte kräver
att man lägger ut artiklar i något specifikt öppet arkiv.

Styrgruppen för beklagar Elseviers försämrade villkor
och känner också oro över att Elseviers krav skapar osäkerhet om
författares rättigheter angående parallellpublicering.
