Libre accès et frais de publication associés (Articles Processing Charges) : une étude de cas de la production scientifique des établissements d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche orléanais

Abstract : One of the corollaries of the open access movement (OA) has been the setting upof open access journals, with the occurrence, for some of them, of publication fees (ArticleProcessing Charges) that authors must pay to publish. The aim of this study is twofold: — tocharacterize the articles produced by the researchers of the higher education and researchinstitutions of Orleans (France) in 2016 in relation to the OA (presence on the open archiveHAL, characteristics of the journals in which these articles have been published, APC theytheoretically require. . .); — to record the actual APCs paid by these matching institutions. Themain results of this study show that the hybrid model is becoming more and more popular amongpublishers (for 83.6% of the 923 articles studied, the authors had the possibility to choose thehybrid option). Regarding that hybrid option, even if it was offered to authors, it was onlychosen in 10% of cases, the number of articles published under this option accounted for 41.9%of articles published in open access. The APC expenses borne by the Orleans community arespread over only 23 articles (out of 923 published), and the actual amount spent (39,261 D ) is inthe end rather limited compared to the total amount spent for the acquisition of documentaryresources by institutions of comparable size to those of the Orleans community. The resultspresented in this study offer a useful comparison with previous works, for a better understandingof the complex problematics of OA and its resulting APCs.© 2019 Elsevier Masson SAS.
