Research funding should go to research, not to publishers!
„LERU calls on all stakeholders in the publishing process – researchers, research funders, universities, publishers, libraries and national governments – to convene together in a summit to tackle the issues of Business Models for Open Access publishing and embargo periods for Green OA. LERU recognises the importance of reaching clarity on these issues. LERU notes that some publishers have adopted new Business Models which enable universities and their libraries to offset APCs against subscription costs. This in effect lessens the danger that universities will pay twice for the same content – once for the subscription and once for an APC.
LERU calls on all stakeholders to discuss such offsetting models and to identify principles by which such offsetting agreements can be reached between universities, procurement bodies, and publishers. The following issues should be included in future discussions and agreements:
* The existing spend of a customer (or a consortium) should be taken as a starting point in negotiations;
* The customer can use the current spending level to “offset” against payment for APCs for journal articles in hybrid journals;
* As part of any agreement, publishers should permit all papers published by university researchers taking up the deal to be made Open Access for no extra charge. „
