Uf Publishing Agreement

The George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida (UF) and Elsevier, a global leader in the field of research and information publishing, have agreed on a new pilot program to support open access publishing (OA) at UF. The Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) is working with its host organization, the Educopia Institute, to conduct targeted research to document the current range of library publishing activities (including costs, staff, and how libraries fund these activities). the refinement and positioning of library-based publishing activities; align library activities in this area with the needs and objectives of the university; and assisting additional libraries in designing and developing publishing services programs. The agreement will support UF`s open access goals by incentivizing researchers at the university to publish open access articles. It also provides a better understanding of researchers` behaviour and learning from the resulting data, helping to promote open access to UF and beyond. The pilot agreement is a modification of the existing license agreement that UF currently has with Elsevier. The new pilot agreement will enter into force on 1 July 2020. The LPC Professional Development Committee coordinates semi-periodic community calls on different topics and allows LPC participants to informally discuss publishing platforms, topics related to library publications, and specific LPC programming. Community calls are not recorded, but notes are usually created according to chatham House rule and shared here. The LPC supports the development of common practices by compiling model documents such as MOUs, author agreements and position descriptions of participating institutions.
