Date: 24th November 3pm- 4pm
The original purpose the ‘Total Cost of Ownership’ data collection was to help Jisc Collections to model different article processing charges (APCs) offsetting schemes which have been developed for their negotiations with publishers. By working with institutions to release this data more widely and by analysing the data within the wider context of scholarly communications, debate has been sparked about hybrid open access publishing and the adoption of business models based on APCs.
This webinar will provide an overview of the rationale, adopted methodology and data analysis / research, which has formed part of the Jisc Collections ‘Total Cost of Ownership’ (TCO) project.
Specifically the webinar will cover:
- The details of APC payments currently being made by institutions
- A comparison of subscription payments being made by institutions
- An estimate of the additional administrative costs to institutions associated with managing payment of APCs
- A picture of the total cost of publication to institutions.
The webinar will be introduced by Lorraine Estelle [Executive director content and discovery and divisional CEO Jisc Collections – Jisc], with the research overview given by Stephen Pinfield [Senior Lecturer Information School, University of Sheffield].
