Stone, Graham (2016) Seeing open access processes more clearly: mapping the life cycle of open access for publishers, researchers and libraries. In: The Researcher to Reader Conference, 15-16 February 2016, BMA, London. (Unpublished)

The HHuLOA project is a two year Jisc supported project from the Universities of Hull, Huddersfield and Lincoln that has been examining the role of open access in furthering the development of research at the partner institutions, with a particular focus on sharing local good practice. One output of the project is the open access life cycle for libraries. The life cycle uses the 7 stages of the publishing process as described by Neil Jacobs (Jisc), and adds layers around these for institutional processes, publisher services that directly impact upon the work of a library open access team, and open access-related above campus services such as those provided by Jisc. Finally, we added the 6 sections of OAWAL showing where we think that fits with the life cycle. This presentation will outline the key components of the academic research life cycle from a library perspective and explore the services libraries currently have available or can develop to best coordinate with the activities undertaken by the research community. The presentation will then introduce a number of new life cycles from the researcher, research manager, IT and publisher perspective before mapping common themes across the new life cycles to suggest areas of commonality and further work. Attendees at this session will gain an in-depth understanding of the current components of the open access life cycle from a variety of viewpoints. In addition, the life cycles will depict where current public policies and funder mandates are applicable within the research process.
