Of possible interest, especially to see also how this report aligns with
the work of the ESAC delegates last week in Munich:

Journal-flipping report open for public comments

Last year (April 2015) the Harvard Library Office for Scholarly
Communication issued a request for proposals to write "a comprehensive
literature review on methods for converting subscription-based
scholarly journals to open access."

In June 2015 we awarded the contract to David Solomon, Bo-Christer
Björk, and Mikael Laakso.

We're happy to announce today that the preliminary version of their
report is now open for public comments:

https://osc.hul.harvard.edu/programs/journal-flipping/public-consultation/

Please read it and add comments, and please spread the word to help us
gather as many useful comments as possible.

From our original RFP: "The purpose of the public comments is to
supplement the literature review, make it more complete, more
detailed, and more useful. For example, the public comments might add
readings omitted from the literature review, extract new
recommendations from readings already covered, suggest new clarity or
detail for recommendations already formulated, and add notes to help
readers consider the merits of the recommendations."

The version we release today will not be the final version. After the
public-comment period (toward the end of April 2016), we'll create a
new version incorporating selected public comments, and pass it to a
panel of experts for an additional set of comments. Then Dave,
Bo-Christer, and Mikael will make their final revisions in light of
the public comments, the panelist comments, our comments from within
the Office for Scholarly Communication, and their own second thoughts.
We'll add a preface and publish that version in the summer or early
fall.

We don't promise to incorporate all the public comments in the final
version, not even all attributed comments. But we'll favor comments
that carry real-name attribution. The panelist comments will all carry
real-name attribution.

(If you post a comment on the document, you'll be granting us
permission to include it in this and future versions under a CC-BY
version 4.0 international license.)

We thank Arcadia for the funds we used to commission this research.

We thank Eddie Tejeda, Christian Wach, and the Institute for the
Future of the Book forCommentPress, the open-source WordPress plugin
we're using to post the current draft for public comments. We also
thank Kathleen Fitzpatrick for the CommentPress theme we adapted for
the present use.

Finally, we thank David Solomon, Bo-Christer Björk, and Mikael Laakso
for their careful research and their willingness to subject it to
public comment before final publication.
