Why Coalition S doesn’t create an alternative Publisher with alternative journals, that allow for these open access principles? Why paying gold OA fees to publishers that contribute very little to the scientific system?

37:50
This was excellent -thank you. Have Springer Nature clarified their position?
Vicky Fenerty
38:28
Is there any plan to contact American publishers to explain the RRS?
Thomas Jenkins
38:39
Who decides whether the 'prior licence' or 'prior obligation' route to rights retention applies? Is it the funder?
Nicki
38:39
Are UK HEIs likely to sign up to RRS or UKSCL for their authors? I hope so!
Vicky Wallace
39:44
I'm curious about the role of journal editors in this - are they being pressurized by the publishers to push back against RRS?
Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe (she-her)

Only some of the cOAlition funders have mandated the RRS or agreed to pay APC TJs. Just as libraries have observed it creates complexity that publishers have different policies, librarians have observed that these differences between cOAlition funders create complexity. Can you share any strategies in place to bring the funders into alignment with e.g. mandating the RRS and paying Transformative Journals APCs in order to not replace one complexity with another?
Ian Carter

Is legal precedence equally applicable across different legal systems? (c.f. the need for a modified approach in the UKSCL compared to the US original.)

Question from Twitter: @lisalibrarian Only some of cOAlition funders have mandated the RSS or agreed to pay APC TJs. Just as libraries have observed it creates complexity that publishers have diff[erent] policies, librarians have observed that these differences between cOAlition funders creates complexity. Can you share any strategies in place to bring the funders into alignment with e.g. mandating the RRS and paying Transformative Journals APCs in order to not replace one complexity with another?

In addition to Martin’s last point: if a Coalition S-funded author submits to a hybrid journal without the RRS statement (by accident) and the publisher processes the paper under the subscription route, is the author / their institution ultimately responsible for any financial outlay to retrospectively make the paper compliant (given that use of any Coalition-S funder’s grant wouldn’t be permitted for hybrid)? Would e.g. the Library have to find funds?
Alex
01:04:22
On the point of blocking Re-uses that the authors do not approve - Don't authors retain Moral Rights, which allow them to block these uses? Do we need to educate authors better about these rights? Is that something where university lawyers would need to lead?
Sam Nesbit

Coalition S report on Diamond: https://www.coalition-s.org/diamond-unearthed-shining-light-on-community-driven-open-access-publishing/
Blue Maignien (they/them)
01:12:06
Are universities interested and/or willing to invest in the "legal expertise" mentionned by Martin? How can they fund this need for in-house advice on publishing contracts?
Alice Corble
01:13:12
Is there scope for cOAlition S to collaborate/join forces with the Academic Ebook Campaign on Ebook market regulation to improve the accessibility of acquiring Ebooks for teaching and research collections in HE libraries?https://academicebookinvestigation.org/
Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe (she-her)
01:14:35
What is the geographic scope of the legal advice being relied upon?
Vic Watt
01:18:05
I think Alice's point above is a good one. We have very similar conversations with academics who have signed contracts but not asked questions about what ebook licences will be offered by publishers (and then get bitten by those "gentlemen's agreements" assumptions). So there are separate but linked conversations to be had.
Ian Carter
01:20:58
University legal departments are not able to act (legally) for an author, because the university is not a party to the publishing agreement. Equally, they tend to be subject to academic concerns about speed of process, so adding publication contracts to their work would not help that.
Ciaran Clark
01:21:42
We will also collect any questions that haven't been addressed and send to the panellists
Nicki
01:22:58
oanyone have an example of the RRS being used to make a paywalled article available immediately on publication?
Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe (she-her)
01:25:03
Nicki — FWIW so far the ones I see are VoR OA so they aren’t a great example? The closed VoR examples I see the AAM hasn’t been deposited.
Nicki
01:26:25
Lisa - same here.
Sam Nesbit
01:27:08
openaccess@sussex.ac.uk for any queries!
Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe (she-her)
01:34:23
Nicki - It is possible they have been submitted to ePMC but not processed yet? I don’t know how long ePMC takes from submission to posting.
