>"We need a complementary objective for the library media acquisition: it is no longer just about buying media and putting it on a shelf or licensing for a campus. It is increasingly a contribution from libraries, so that scientific literature can even be published in open access."
This is a key finding of the OA2020-DE transformation workshop for acquisition librarians, which took place on 19 and 20 April 2018 in Bielefeld. The workshop covered topics relevant to the open access transformation: "collecting cost and publication data at a university" and "alternative publication models for open access journals and open access monographs". The short introduction round at the beginning showed that the topic is gaining relevance not only for universities, but increasingly also for universities of applied sciences.

# Workshop on open-access transformation focuses on framework conditions
On 17 and 18 October 2018, an open-access transformation workshop organised by OA2020-DE took place for the second time. The aims of this workshop were to network the signatories of the "Expression of Interest" of the OA2020 initiative, to win new supporters and to exchange information on concrete activities to implement the open-access transformation. This time, the participants mainly consisted of open-access officers and library directors. The first day focused on strategies for open-access transformation at national and international level, while the second day focused on concrete transformation processes at research institutions and university libraries ([Agenda](/assets/files/OA2020DE_Agenda_Workshop20181017-18_en.pdf)).
<!-- TEASER_END -->
**Open-access strategies**
In her [presentation](/assets/files/2y0181017_OA2020DE_Workshop_TTOA_SaskiadeVries.pdf), Dr. Saskia de Vries from the [Fair Open Access Alliance](https://www.fairopenaccess.org/) pointed out the framework conditions under which a transparent transition to open access is possible with the involvement of all stakeholders and in compliance with PlanS (TTOA - A Transparent Transition to Open Access). On the one hand, this means that publishers must disclose their direct and indirect costs so that transparency is created for libraries and research funding bodies. On the other hand, a common platform is to be established for all publishers involved in TTOA, through which the submission, review, publication and archiving of scientific journal articles can be organised in a transparent and sustainable manner.
Dr. Ralf Schimmer then presented the current efforts of the [International Open Access 2020 Initiative](/assets/files/20181017_OA2020DE_Workshop_Strategiender OA2020-Initiativeiminternationalen Kontext_Schimmer.pptx). The core of the activities is the recognition that a lot of power lies in the acquisition decisions of the individual institutions and consortia, which must be used (Open Access as a natural evolutionary form of the previous licenses).

The new approach to making open access the standard involves the money already available in the publication system and the conversion of (subscription-based) journals and financial flows. The [DEAL project](https://www.projekt-deal.de/) of the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany is pursuing a similar approach: Through the negotiation of publish & read models, open-access transformation is actively promoted in Germany. Here (again) Dr. Schimmer reported on the current state of [negotiations](/assets/files/20181017_OA2020DE_Workshop_DEAL_Schimmer.pdf).

At the end of the first day, Mr. Dirk Pieper summarized the previous situation and additionally presented [models](/assets/files/20181017_OA2020DE_Workshop_OA2020DE_Pieper.pdf) of the National Contact Point Open Access for the open-access transformation at the national level. In addition to the pilot project [transcript OPEN Library Political Science](/en/pages/transcriptopenlibrarypols/), which aims to promote the gold open access publishing of monographs, he also provided insight into the [model](/en/pages/KUjournalflipping/) developed together with Knowledge Unlatched for flipping subscription-based or hybrid journals into open access.
**Open access in research institutions**
The second day of the workshop was devoted entirely to the topic of implementing the open-access transformation at non-university research institutions and university libraries. Representatives of the [Fraunhofer Society](/assets/files/20101818_OA2020DE_Workshop_Fraunhofer_Seeh.pdf), the [Leibniz Association](/assets/files/20181018_OA2020DE_Workshop_Leibniz_Siegert.pdf), the [Max Planck Society](/assets/files/20181018_OA2020DE_Workshop_MPG_Schimmer.pdf), the [Helmholtz Association](http://gfzpublic.gfz-potsdam.de/pubman/item/escidoc:3613889) and the [SUB Göttingen](/assets/files/20181018_OA2020DE_Workshop_OATransformationSUB Göttingen_Horstmann.pdf) presented the various approaches in their respective research communities and institutions. All speakers emphasised the need for institutional publication data analysis and the most uniform possible control of the relevant budget/cost centres as important instruments for the institutional implementation of open-access transformation.
Prof. Dr. Wolfram Horstmann from the SUB Göttingen also stressed that local and international action must go hand in hand in order to make large-scale open-access transformation a reality.
**Lessons learned**
In order for the open-access transformation in scientific institutions to be implemented and managed efficiently, certain organizational framework conditions should be fulfilled. In particular, these are:
+ the operation of infrastructures relevant to open access (repositories, publication platforms such as OJS),
+ institutional publication data and cost analyses,
+ a holistic control of the relevant budgets / cost centers (acquisition budgets, publication funds etc.),
+ the functional and organisational anchoring of the open-access transformation in the individual institutions, e.g. by setting up cross-departmental team structures.
The workshop participants were able to use the findings gained to bring back concrete strategies and possibilities for implementing the open-access transformation to their institutions. This also includes signing the ["Expression of Interest"](https://openaccess.mpg.de/2172617/Expression-of-Interest).

## Report on the Hands-On-Lab "New business models and workflows in open access" at the 7th Library Congress 2019
There are far more open-access business models than the established variants of Article or Book Processing Charges. The Hands-On Lab "New business models and workflows in open access" organised by us at the 7th Library Congress (= 108th Library Day) in Leipzig therefore aimed to present the participants with concepts and ideas for further/other business models in the field of open-access publishing. The common basis is the understanding of scientific publishers, intermediaries, traders and libraries as partners in the publication process.
<!-- TEASER_END -->
### Three models for the open-access transformation
After the greeting and introduction into the lab we started with the first impulse lecture. Dirk Pieper, project manager of OA2020-DE, presented the model **"Evidence-based open-access transformation"**. The model of the "evidence-based selection" known in the field of acquisitions will be adapted for the open-access transformation of e-books (monographs and anthologies) mainly in the humanities and social sciences. This means that electronic textbooks can be made openly accessible after an embargo period of one to two years. Following the lecture, the participants - divided into four groups - subjected the model to a SWOT analysis and identified the following strengths and weaknesses:
| Strengths | Weaknesses |
|--------------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Good interaction of relevance and use | Delayed open access / reactive model |
| Open access position of popular titles | Is the title open access capable at all? |
| Quality assurance on the part of the publisher and subject specialists | Do the authors want open access at all? They are hardly involved. |
| Broader access to open-access eBooks via library catalogues | Use-based "bestsellers" -> niche topics are neglected |
| Cost-effective, low-threshold, integrable, needs-based, objective, transparent | Expected price publisher vs expected price library |
| Opportunities for the humanities and social sciences for more open access | Are enough libraries involved? |
| Complementary model for immediate open access, transfers old holdings into open access | Publishers have additional work in rights management: they have to retroactively convert rights or negotiate new licenses|
(Results as a [photo](/assets/images/SWOTAnalyse_EBOA.jpg) (please open the link in a new tab))
<br />
Lecture 2 was dedicated to the so-called **"Cooperative Open Access Germany Consortium"**. This represents a cooperative financing model in modification of the SCOAP³ mechanisms. Instead of publishing all publications of a discipline in open access, it aims to organise the financing of all publications with a German corresponding author by an open-access publisher in open-access journals. Here, too, the group work on the strengths-weaknesses-opportunities-risks analysis followed directly and produced the following results:
| Strengths | Weaknesses |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Low administrative burden in scientific institutions | High level of consortium coordination and administrative effort |
| Lean workflows for libraries and authors | Complex model |
| Moderate APCs, no costs for authors directly | No consideration of monographs |
| Integration of humanities and social sciences possible | Focus on pure OA journals and OA publishers, therefore more for the natural and health sciences |
| Greater bargaining power vis-à-vis publishers | Predicting publication behavior is difficult |
| Test for pricing mechanisms after extensive OA transformation | How do you evaluate quality and professional relevance? |
(Results as a [photo](/assets/images/SWOTAnalyse_Konsortium.jpg) (please open the link in a new tab))
<br />
The final third model, **"Subscribe to Open"**, is based on the libraries continuing to keep their subscription payment for a subscription, but the content is then available to all open access for each year. A final round of group work revealed the following strengths and weaknesses of the model:
| Strengths | Weaknesses |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Little effort | No cost transparency, as no APCs are required |
| No additional costs for libraries, no costs for authors | Problem of journal crisis not solved ("Old School") |
| Suitable for niche journals | New rights system for publishers necessary for authors |
| Can be integrated into existing processes | Focus on buyers instead of producers |
| Suitable for journals with rather little overlap between readership and authorship | Community and authors of the journal do not know beforehand whether an article OA appears or not -> difficult in connection with funder mandates |
| | Free-rider problem not completely solved |
(Results as a [photo](/assets/images/SWOTAnalyse_S2O.jpg) (please open the link in a new tab))
<br />
### Results and outlook
In addition to the discussion and evaluation of the models by the participating librarians and publishing house representatives, it was also necessary to develop criteria under which a publishing and/or librarian participation in open-access publication forms is possible. The 35 or so participants finally agreed on the following points, which should be fulfilled:
* Publisher's reputation
* Sustainable open-access transformation
* Quality assurance
* Cost transparency and cost planning
* In line with our own open-access policy
* According to the funding requirements
* Freedom in the use of resources in the libraries
The Hands-On-Lab has shown that the challenges and opportunities open access offers to everyone involved in the publication process can be mastered above all through joint action. This impression was confirmed at the third OA2020-DE transformation workshop in Bielefeld at the beginning of April (see [report](/en/blog/2019/05/07/3oatransformationsworkshop/)). The slides for the Hands-On-Lab, including the results of the group work, are available online on the BIB OPUS [server](https://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:0290-opus4-164013).

## Libraries and publishers as partners in the open-access publication process
How can a common understanding between the actors of the scientific publication system and a resulting common path for the implementation of the open-access transformation be developed? Under this central question, an open-access transformation workshop organised by OA2020-DE took place for the third time in Bielefeld on 03 and 04 April 2019 ([Agenda](/assets/files/Agenda_OA2020DETransformationsworkshop_April2019.pdf)). The aim was to provide the participating publishers and libraries with information on various developments and approaches of the open-access transformation as well as ideas on how to implement them in their own library and publishing practice. In addition, the direct exchange between them served to answer the central question.
<!-- TEASER_END -->
### Open access is not an end in itself...
In his [welcoming address](/assets/files/Pieper_Einführung_20190403.pdf), Dirk Pieper discussed the current developments in the context of the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany in relation to the open-access transformation and presented as one of the discussion bases for the workshop the collected criteria for publishing and library participation in open access forms of publication from the Hands-On-Lab at the 7th Library Congress in Leipzig (see [report](/en/blog/2019/05/03/bericht-handsonlab-Bibliothekskongress/)). Dr. Angela Holzer then established the [link](/assets/files/2019_NOAK_Open-Access-Transformation @ DFG.pdf) to the German Research Foundation (DFG) and emphasised that the DFG's view is that the open-access transformation must be guided by science and serves the further development of science communication. If, at the end of 2020, the support of publication funds for the takeover of open access publication costs expires after a 10-year funding period, the DFG believes that a completely new funding structure for the area of ​​information infrastructures is needed. How this should look like is currently being discussed at all levels of research funding and was also a topic of discussion afterwards. It became clear that there must also be support for researchers as editors of scientific publications, e.g. in the form of an institutionally organised and provided infrastructure for electronic publications and digital science communication. Another problem identified is the highly fragmented open-access monograph market. Different publishers, different funding pools with different award criteria and the unpredictable demand make it difficult to develop uniform criteria for funding and the price-performance spectrum.
At the end of the block, the project staff of OA2020-DE, Alexandra Jobmann and Dr. Nina Schönfelder, presented three [open-access transformation models](http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.2652163) beyond DEAL - Subscribe to Open S2O, Evidence-based open access and the Cooperative Germany Consortium - which had already been presented to the community for evaluation at the Hands-On-Lab at the Library Congress in Leipzig.
These approaches were complemented by the presentation of the open-access eBook models of the publishers transcript, De Gruyter and Nomos. Dr. Karin Werner of the transcript publishing house [presented](/assets/files/Transformationsworkshop_transcript.pdf) her idea for a new publishing culture as the basis for sustainable open access in the humanities and emphasised the importance of a partnership between all participants on an equal footing. Dr. Christina Lembrecht and Martina Naekel von De Gruyter presented the open-access model for the book series "Empirical Linguistics", in which the open-access position of the backlist is completely borne by the specialised information service and the open-access position of the planned titles for the next three years (a total of six) is financed by the authors on a pro-rata basis (via the print publication subsidy, approx. 1/3 of the OA fee) and the FID or the institution (approx. 2/3 of the OA fee). Prof. Dr. Johannes Rux of Nomos Verlag emphasised in his contribution the importance of publication cost subsidies for book production in general and for an open-access-book in particular and reported on the [contract](https://www.mpdl.mpg.de/21-specials/50-open-access-publishing.html) that Nomos has with the MPDL for the publication of open-access books by MPG researchers.
The following questions were then discussed in the working groups that followed the lectures:
* Where can libraries/publishers start?
* Where is joint action meaningful/necessary?
* Which workflows need to be established/further developed?

### ...but serves the further development of science communication.
The second workshop day was devoted to the various open-access models in the field of journals and the understanding of library consortia as actors of the open-access transformation.
As Maja Laisse from Thieme-Verlag reported, the publisher relies on different models for different journals. For new open-sccess journals that are not yet indexed and have no impact factor, for example, there is the possibility of "Pay what you want" - a model that is being researched by the LMU Munich. With the ZB MED and the Research Center Jülich, the publishing house has again developed a transformation model for the journal "Hormone & Metabolic Research", which successively [converts](https://www.thieme.com/for-media/press-releases/1617-dfg-sponsors-open-access-transformation-project-library-consortium-and-thieme-embark-on-collaboration) the access fees of the participating German libraries into publication fees. The long-term goal is to flip the entire journal into open access. The model is funded by the DFG.
Agnes Kühlechner of Hogrefe publishing house stated that their share of open-access publications is very low compared to other publishers, even though all journals are available in hybrid open-access form. One explanation for this could be that many of the journals are published by different learned societies, which are committed to open access and a transformation of their journals to different degrees.
In turn, De Gruyter has learned that what works in the STM area can not be adapted to the HSS sector. On the one hand, because APC or hybrid models are not accepted, and on the other hand, because national transformation contracts are difficult to implement for (German-language) journals in the humanities and social sciences. For the transformation of humanities journals other transformation models and logics are needed. They have therefore begun to look at the respective author and subscription structure for each journal and to develop a transformation model based on this. Dr. Christina Lembrecht and Martina Naekel illustrated this work with a journal from the field of Library and Information Science.
The concluding lecture by Renate Wahlig dealt with the topic of consortia as actors of the open-access transformation. She stressed that the number of different open-access models recommended to libraries for implementation can lead to frustration and rejection. High complexity in procedures, in turn, often leads to delays and noncontracts. Here, too, there is no single suitable solution for all, but different groups of participants have different needs and requirements.
### Lessons learned
Consortia and (consortium) funding play a central role in the further development of science communication. The funds can be used, among other things, to relieve the burden on institutions with high publication rates and to support the development of balancing mechanisms with the highest possible transparency and awareness of the costs of publications. One approach can be to develop different contracts for different groups of participants - e.g. for institutions with high and low publication rates.
Open access as a central element of science communication is just as diverse as the publication cultures of the various scientific disciplines and requires correspondingly tailor-made approaches. Whether small steps or large-scale approaches are the means of choice also depends on the profile of the publishers. It is important to have clear negotiation goals and to allow failure to happen.
