Simplifying OA policy compliance for authors through a publisher-repository partnership
Author(s): Mariya Maistrovskaya, University of Toronto Libraries; Judy Hum-Delaney, Canadian Science Publishing
This paper will describe a collaboration between Canadian Science Publishing, an independent, not-for-profit publisher of over 20 science journals, and the University of Toronto Libraries, to create an automated transfer and deposit of author manuscripts into the U of T’s research repository, TSpace. An integration workflow developed shortly thereafter by the UTL’s Information Technology Services team in close consultation with CSP delivers both a manuscript and accompanying metadata from the publisher’s system into the repository where it is assigned a permanent URI, openly released, and widely indexed by search engines. The automated manuscript deposit workflow removes the dependence on researchers keeping the ephemeral manuscript version. By transferring both the manuscript and accompanying metadata into a repository directly from the publisher’s system, it makes compliance seamless and hassle free for grant recipients, and opens doors for further publisher-repository collaboration.

It’s all in the relationships: A liaison role for librarian-publishers
Authors: Emily Carlisle, Western Libraries; Kristin Hoffmann, Western Libraries
Link to presentation
In fall 2017, we initiated a migration of the University of Western Ontario’s 32 library-hosted journals from the bepress Digital Commons platform to the Open Journal Systems (OJS) platform. This was a response to concerns expressed by librarians and journal editors regarding potential implications of Elsevier’s August 2017 acquisition of bepress, including the possibility that Elsevier might place ads on their journal pages or increase fees for journal-hosting services. Our goal was to mitigate those concerns by ensuring that Western Libraries’ journal platform remained as open and community-driven as possible. Because the migration coincided with a librarian taking on responsibilities for journal hosting, separate from broader institutional repository responsibilities, the migration has also provided the opportunity for a re-assessment and renewed emphasis for our library publishing service.

The launch of Centre Mersenne, a technical infrastructure to support the move towards Diamond open access
Authors: Thierry Bouche, Université Grenoble Alpes; Evelyne Miot, Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS- French National Center for Scientific Research); Célia Vaudaine, Université Grenoble Alpes
The aim of this paper is to present the Centre Mersenne for Open Scientific Publishing, a new open access scientific publishing infrastructure for publications written in LaTeX. The Centre Mersenne was launched in January 2018 with the first volume of the newly-created journal Algebraic Combinatorics. This non-profit initiative hosted by French public institutions was created to address a growing need within the scientific community for alternative solutions simultaneously scalable, sustainable, trustworthy, of high quality and at fair price. The Centre Mersenne supports publications such as journals, books and proceedings from any scientific discipline, provided they are written in LaTeX and engaged towards Diamond open access.
