Questionnaire Survey



Policies and practices in handling of online journals and open access publishing



The National Diet Library (NDL) is researching how to collect and disseminate scientific and technical information in the digital information environment. With the advance of Information Technology, the publishing mechanism of that kind of information is changing significantly. This research aims to examine the NDL’s roles as a national library and to explore the possibility of a cooperation with related organizations in this new environment.



As part of the research, this questionnaire survey is being sent out to national libraries and scientific and technical information centers in Asia, Europe and North America to see how they handle online journals and publications by new scholarly information publishing models such as the SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), institutional repositories, and e-print archives. Although answers may vary according to the library/institution, we expect that cross-sectional research will provide us with a new perspective.



This survey is designed to ask questions about your library/institution’s policy on online journals and open access publishing, as well as its practices in the process of acquiring, organizing, and providing access to them. Each question should be answered by the person responsible for that particular.



Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.



Sincerely,




Yoshitaka Ikuhara


Director General


Kansai-kan of the National Diet Library

. Criticizing

the existing publication and dissemination system that has been driven by publishing companies, the scholarly community is taking a leading role in

developing a new model for a more open dissemination of

scholarly information, utilizing information technology. Here, we would like to ask you what your library/institution is doing for a new

dissmination system for

scholarly information.




A. Initiatives to promote changes in the publication of scholarly information such as
SPARC
(Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition)


< http://www.arl.org/sparc/core/index.asp?page=a0 >



(1) Does your library/institution’s task include organizing or positively participating in initiatives like SPARC, which seek changes in the publication system for scholarly information? Please provide the reason, too.










(2) Does your library/institution take part in such initiatives? If yes, let us know the name of the initiative and how your library/institution is engaged in it. If no, but you have a plan for it, please write about it.








B. Models of publication system for scholarly information such as
PLoS Biology


< http://www.plosbiology.org/plosonline/?request=get-static&name=information > and
e-print archive
< http://arxiv.org/ > that are based on direct user access and do not use publishing companies.



(1) Does your library/institution’s task include acquisition and provision of scholarly information disseminated through such systems? Please provide the reason, too.






(2) If you already acquire and provide such information, please let us know how you do it.








C.
Institutional repositories



(1) Do you think your library/institution should acquire scholarly information disseminated through institutional repositories? Please provide the reason.







(2) If your library/institution already acquires it, please write about the range and size of the collection.








D. Dissemination models of scholarly information like
PubMed Central
< http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/ >, which acquires articles already published under the existing publication system and makes them available at no charge.



(1) Does your library/institution develop such a dissemination system and make it available to the public? If yes, what is the purpose of it? What is the range and size of the system?







(2) Do you think your library/institution should develop such a distribution system?









This is the end of the questionnaire. Thank you very much for your cooperation. Please provide your information below. In case we have any questions about your reply, we hope you will allow us to contact you.
