The new norm: thoughts on the world, post-OA

Vicky Gardner, Open Access Publisher at Taylor & Francis, discusses the global open access landscape and the future of scholarly communication.

Since 2012 open access (OA) has been in overdrive. The UK catalysed developments with the commissioning and publication of the so-called 'Finch' report on publication and accessibility of research.

It has now arguably passed the baton on to the Netherlands, the first nation to clearly articulate its vision, by 2024, of publishing all of its research outputs on a Gold OA basis.

The rest of the world is engaging with OA in some form or other, though policies predominantly focus on Green OA (archiving articles in repositories following their publication in subscription journals). Nonetheless there is a clear direction of travel, and the future looks set to be Open.

What next then, for scholarly communication? Read the full article via Research Information.

ADINET National Librarians Day

ADINET, the Ahmedabad Library Network celebrated National Librarians' Day with Taylor & Francis

ADINET is the information network of libraries in Gujarat, with 2,079 libraries registered under the association. National Librarians' Day is a one day conference, celebrating the birth anniversary of S. R. Ranganathan, an Indian mathematician and librarian who devised the five laws of library sciences. The event was held at Nirma University on 22nd August 2015, with 400 librarians from across Gujarat. The theme of the conference was 'Library as a Learning Space - Role and Relevance of Libraries in the Future'.

The day was full of activities hosted by Taylor & Francis, including the launch of the 'Special Librarian Day' issue of the Ignite Newsletter and a presentation on 'YouTube in Academic Libraries'. This was followed by a session of question-answers and brainstorming, where participants discussed how their libraries used social media and if they could potentially use YouTube and its channels, such as YouTube Edu, as strong learning aids creating a digital space in the library.

Dr. Harish Padh, Vice Chancellor of Sardar Patel University and Chief Guest said that he was 'very happy that a publisher of such repute had thought of investing in Librarian intervention through participation in an event such as Librarians' day. It speaks volumes about how important their customers are to the company.'

Supporting authors: discover our re-launched Author Services website

Do you work with researchers who are looking for advice on how to publish in a journal? We know librarians are often a key source of information and advice for researchers based at their institution on how to get published, fielding queries on everything from how to choose the right journal for a particular paper to open access publishing.

Taylor & Francis works with librarians around the world to ensure, as a publisher, we offer the right kind of resources and support to help them in answering these queries, and, in order to try and meet this need, we are re-launching our Author Services website, with new resources for all researchers looking to publish a journal article.

While some of the areas covered are aimed specifically at researchers looking to publish in a Taylor & Francis or Routledge journal, there is also much which will be of interest to anyone who wants to learn more about the journal publishing process, and what to expect as they move through it. The style and content of the site has been developed with the input of researchers from around the world, whose comments and advice have been invaluable in shaping the site to ensure it addresses the needs of the global author community we work with.
