Gathering the Needles: Evaluating the Impact of Gold Open Access content within Traditional Subscription Journals

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Investigating the use of gold open access content within subscription content has been a near impossible task until the adoption of the COUNTER 4 statistics in 2014. By reviewing the COUNTER JR1 GOA 2014 reports, two librarians evaluate the gold open access usage at their respective institutions from the following publishers: Elsevier, NPG, OUP, Sage, Springer, Taylor and Francis, and Wiley. This initial investigation will be a benchmark for future studies to see if there is any impact on subscribed content or if usage is limited to non-subscribed content from these providers. Attendees will become familiar with the JR1 GOA reports from COUNTER as well be introduced to new evaluative techniques for hybrid open access content.
