An announcement from the DOAJ that we got at the Code4Lib Journal, since
we're listed in the DOAJ.

I forward it to you all because it's related to the on-going discussion
some of us are having about "how the heck can we get our software to
find open access versions of articles." Certainly not close to a fix-all
even if their project is succesful, but addresses one component of one
subset of open access material.

> Firstly, as you probably are aware of, there is a growing discussion and attention to open access to scholarly information in the research community. The current discussion is concentrating on open access in a broader sense than just free access to journal articles.
>
> In order for research to be really open, researchers need more than just to get free access to the articles -- that is more than free-to-read. Researchers are increasingly demanding and expecting to be able to reuse not only the text in various ways, but increasingly to be able to do text- and data mining in order to more efficiently extract and discover fractions of the content (i.e. for instance acronyms for genes, proteins, abbreviations etc.) and to uncover hidden relations between such fractions by automated computing.
>
> In order for open access journals to be even more useful and thus receive more exposure and provide more value to the research community it is very important that open access journals offer standardized, easily retrievable information about what kinds of reuse are allowed.
>
> Creative Commons offers a number of licenses that in a standardized way makes it very easy for content providers to offer information about these issues. More information about this under Step 1 below.
>
> Secondly, SPARC Europe and The Directory of Open Access Journals (operated by Lund University, Sweden) have entered an agreement about introducing a certification scheme for Open Access journals, the SPARC Europe Seal for Open Access Journals.
>
> The intention of the scheme is to motivate open access journals to deliver metadata to DOAJ. The DOAJ team will then convert the metadata into standardized XML-format and OAI-compliant format, which will further increase the visibility of articles and provide means for the easiest possible dissemination thus reaching more readers, attracting more authors, gaining more prestige and impact.

> The team behind the DOAJ will offer various forms of assistance and guidance in this respect.

> What are the advantages of having the SPARC Europe Seal?
>
> Improved information as to what users are allowed to do with papers published in your journal(s).
>
> Possible long-term archiving of your content, which makes publishing in your journal more attractive to authors.
>
> Better exposure as a high-quality journal based on state-of-the art dissemination technologies.
>
> The DOAJ team converts your metadata and makes the metadata harvestable, which means the widest possible dissemination and thus increased usage and impact.

>
>
>
> In order to qualify for the SPARC Europe Seal you must apply the CC-BY license, which is the most user friendly license, allowing among other things for long-term preservation and text- and data-mining
>
>
> How to choose the CC-BY license:
>
> Go to the Creative Commons (CC) web site (http://creativecommons.org/about/license/) and copy the CC-BY Icon  -
>
> -- you might as well consult this: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Before_Licensing .
>
> Put the CC-BY icon on the homepage of your journal(s) and preferably on each article in your journal.
>
> Go to DOAJ web site (http://www.doaj.org) , login to "For journal owners", click on "license info" and choose CC-license for your journal(s).
>
> The CC icon will be shown automatically in DOAJ.

> Step 2:

> Your journal(s) shall continuously provide DOAJ with metadata for all of your content.
>
>
>
> How to provide us with the metadata:
>
> Right now DOAJ tools allow you to do the following:
> upload article by article filling a web form
> upload files containing one or more records. The files must conform with the DOAJ XML Schema specification (read more at: http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=loadTempl&templ=070507).
>
> These two features can be found once you have logged in to "For journal owners" on DOAJ web site (http://www.doaj.org).
>
> Once we have your content (metadata on article level) in DOAJ, the content become OAI harvestable and distributed in an XML format to the rest of the world.
