Web25: The Road Ahead
Putting Data at the Heart of the Open Web Platform

Phil Archer, W3C Data Activity Lead, Ipswich

Publishing data in support of academic papers presents challenges to publishers, not least how to establish a sustainable business model. Enrichment, linkage and visualization are the key - and the Web is pretty good at that. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. Led by Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C's mission is to lead the Web to its full potential by developing protocols and guidelines that ensure the long-term growth of the Web. The ultimate vision is One Web.

The Changing Environment for University Presses
Peter M. Berkery, Jr., Executive Director, The Association of American University Presses, New York

While university presses have faced claims of "crisis" for well over 40 years now, both the scope and velocity of the changes they currently face are in many ways unprecedented. AAUP's executive director will provide an environmental scan of the current state of university press publishing, focusing on the challenges unique to this segment of the scholarly communications ecosystem. He'll highlight the things AAUP members have started doing to meet those new challenges, from technology initiatives tonew consortial activities, as well as outline what still lies ahead.

Overview and Update:
An Overview of the evolving US Policies for Public Access to Scholarly Publications and Data
Dr. H. Frederick Dylla, Executive Director and CEO, American Institute of Physics, College Park

Over the last two years there has been significant activity in the United States with the development and implementation of public access policy for both scholarly publications and data resulting from publicly funded research. In February 2013 the US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a directive to federal agencies that fund research to develop, together with the stakeholders, broad-based public access plans. To help satisfy the requirement, the publishing community formed the Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States (CHORUS), and a coalition of university organizations initiated the Shared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE). By late 2014, one major US research agency had released its plan and other agencies are expected to follow suit. This talk will review the agency plans that are public to-date and the community’s response to them.

Open Research or Infringement of Authors' Rights?
The Suitability of the CC-BY License for Research Publications
Moderation: Prof. Dr. Christian Sprang, Legal Counsel, German Association of Publishers and Booksellers (Börsenverein), Frankfurt am Main

N.N. to be announced

Over the past few years, funding agencies in a variety of countries have begun imposing requirements on authors whose research they have funded; authors that publish articles should use specific forms of Creative Commons (CC) licenses. The current trend among research organizations including governmental funders is towards increased mandates on authors around CC-BY and variants thereof. Failure to comply with these mandates may lead to adverse consequences, such as loss of future research funds.

The CC-BY license requires attribution to the author, but otherwise allows users to reuse materials without receiving separate, express permission of the author for both commercial and non-commercial reuses, irrevocably, with no right of remuneration for the author. This includes the right to make derivative works. The "Share Alike" (SA) variant requires that those who create derivative works must relicense the derivative additions on the same terms as the underlying work (e.g., CC-BY SA). In each case, attribution is required to the author. Creative Commons offers other license options, which limit commercial reuse and bar creation of derivative works. Those more restrictive variations are disfavored by many funding agencies.

The funder mandates around CC-BY and CC-BY SA raise a number of ethical and legal questions. Some scholars, as well as learned societies, have expressed strong concerns that the CC-BY licence may not be appropriate for published works. It has been suggested, that the CC-BY license facilitates and promotes commercial re-use and uses akin to plagiarism; that the license therefore amounts to an infringement of authors' moral and intellectual property rights; and that it is likely to damage the quality of education. Legal concerns may, depending on the jurisdiction, implicate moral rights, constitutional law, free speech, contract law, copyright/authors rights and patent law.

The session deals with main questions in this heated debate and gives inside views of supporters and opponents of CC BY mandates

Session: The Practical Side of Open Access – Building an APC Billing Infrastructure
Moderation: Dr. Ralf Schimmer, Head of Information, Max Planck Digital Library, Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Munich  

With firm commitments growing to make research results openly available, the handling requirements for Article Processing Charges (APC) receive more and more attention. To be prepared for larger scalability, a robust infrastructure will be required. The first components already exist and will be discussed from the perspectives of different stakeholders.

Peer Review – A Publisher Value-Add? Or Essential to the Scientific Communication System?
Kent Anderson, Publisher, Science (AAAS), Washington  

Publishers have become accustomed to describing peer review as a “value-add” they provide to research papers. But economic theory strongly suggests that the priority system created by third-party peer review is essential to encouraging the communication of scientific results and allowing rough approximations of the value of scientific contributions. This talk will explore the importance of publishers as arbiters of the scientific priority system, why we have become confused about our role, and why changes to the system should not be undertaken without comprehending the entire sweep of what peer review accomplishes.

Session: Dotcoms-to-watch: Sharing is Multiplying
Moderation: Drs. Eefke Smit, Director, Standards and Technology, STM, Amsterdam

With a new generation of scientists and researchers constantly online, living and breathing the paradigm of sharing information during 24/7, scholarly communication is in flux more than ever before. Part of the new movements is an ever increasing flow of new dotcoms, launching new apps and services that make sharing and virtual networking between researchers easier and easier. Come and hear about the dotcoms we have selected this year for APE 2015; their founders will tell you how they will be changing the landscape of scholarly communication. This is your chance to meet a new generation of disruptors:

Session: Discovery. About Context & Content

Proactive Discovery and Semantic Search
Alex D. Wade, Director, Scholarly Communication, Internet Services Research Group, Microsoft Reserach, Redmond, WA

Web-scale search has been around for more than twenty years, and it is now evolving beyond simple keyword based search to support better understanding of the content, large-scale mapping of the world's knowledge, and richer ways to elicit users intent. As a result, web-scale search can now provide richer discovery than ever before, and to bring the right content and answers to users when and where it is needed. This talk will cover several new approaches to academic information discovery.

Defragmentation: Optimising the Use of Existing Knowledge
Drs. Jan Velterop, Advocate and Advisor, Open Access and Open Science, Guildford

Fragmentation of scientific information is a long-standing problem. Different journals; different publishers; different platforms; different formats. They all act as encumbrances to seamless knowledge-pattern-analyses, which is fast becoming an absolute necessity due to the vast amounts of published material, growing every year, and, of course, in the aggregate. The work necessary to assemble large enough bodies of literature, from many and disparate sources, takes away much time and money from what could have been spent on actual research. Open science, particularly material published under CC-BY licences, makes it possible to tackle these issues and transition to new ways of using, and building on, vast amounts of existing published knowledge, even when actual reading of individual articles is only possible to a very limited degree. The benefits of defragmentation will be discussed and a new initiative that brings together large amounts of articles, in a variety of standard formats, ready to be used by researchers, will be presented.

Invited: Prof. Dr. Krzysztof Janowicz, Co-Editor-in-Chief, ‘Semantic Web’, Geography Department, University of California, Santa Barbara

15:30 – 17:00
Closing Panel: The Communication of Scientific Results
The focus will be on data - should we archive/share all data generated, as envisioned by some in the open science movement? The other side of the coin is, why are we only sharing a tiny fraction of data current via publication. How much data should be shared? What quality control/validation do we need for such data? How does data need to be archived to render it useful and discoverable?

The Future of Academic Publishing:
An Interactive Discussion on Developments in Scholarly Communication

Organized by Bas Straub (Magknowlia, Haarlem), Anthony Watkinson (CIBER Research, Newbury), Martijn Roelandse (Springer, Dordrecht) and Rasjel van der Holst (IOS Press, Amsterdam)  

Open Access has changed a lot within scholarly publishing. One thing that is often overlooked is the fact, that it required academia to become much more actively involved in the publishing process. This has created both a new way of thinking around publishing as well as a number of very interesting start-ups. The APE 2015 Pre-Conference Day will look at the "What is Next" for our industry
