Adoption by scholars of their rights to put a version of their articles into repository so that anyone can access it is very low. Even in places where there are mandates or policies requiring or strongly encouraging Open Access the policies and mandates are only forward looking, so many important articles are not archived. In places or disciplines where there are no mandates form funding organizations or where there are no institutional policies strongly encouraging open access the adoption rates are extremely low. What can be done to have the vast majority of scholarly articles freely available to learners and scholars world-wide?
A proposal has been made that publishers, especially open access publishers, could ping authors of referenced sources to encourage them self-archive a version of their articles.
This lively lunch will be to discuss the pro's and con's of this approach and identify what are some of the tools in place or under development which could automate the processes of any organization seeking to urge scholars to self-archive.
