JISC Collections ITT: Call to publishers to participate in OAPEN-UK

22 October 2010

JISC Collections invites publishers of scholarly monographs in the  
Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) to tender to participate in a new  
project entitled OAPEN-UK.

The aim of OAPEN-UK is to experiment with scholarly monographs in the  
humanities and social sciences to find out if open access as a model  
is feasible, and what impacts open access scholarly monographs have on  
print and e-book sales, reach and readership.

Central to OAPEN-UK is the Noah experiment which will measure the  
impact an open access edition of a humanities or social science  
scholarly monograph has on the sales of print and e-book editions and  
the comparison between OA, print and e-book editions in terms of  
usage, costs, reach and readership.

Publishers are invited to submit 'matched pairs' of HSS scholarly  
monograph titles for inclusion in the Noah experiment. Total funding  
of £250,000 is available and for each 'matched pair' selected,  
publishers will receive funding of £6,000.

Following selection, each title in the 'matched pair' will be randomly  
assigned into either the Experimental Group or the Control Group.  
Titles in the Experimental Group will be made available in Open Access  
and titles in the Control Group will be made available as e-books for  
purchase. Data will be collected to evaluate the impacts of the titles  
on print and e-book sales as well as the impact on reach and readership.

The Noah experiment will run from May 2011 until April 2014.

Successful publishers will participate in the collection, analysis and  
evaluation of data and join the OAPEN-UK Steering Group.
