that's the value of savings to the authors; how much is that costing the library, though?

Anya Bartelmann
01:45:49
I get many queries from PPPL asking about Frontiers--is it good quality? is it predatory? should I publish there? etc
Yuan Li
01:47:00
HI Anya, Frontier is a legitimate publisher. They are just a relatively new OA publisher. as Laura said, it's not well-know yet. but it's rising as more OA publishing is on the way
Yuan Li
01:47:37
We do have a lot authors published with them. OA Fund also supported a few of Frontier publications.
Anya Bartelmann
01:48:05
Yes, I generally encourage the researchers to publish there if it fits with their research. I think they ask because they are unfamiliar with the publisher and are frequently targeted by poor quality journals
Emily Wild
01:48:14
Anya - Yes, we published in Frontiers often when I worked at the USGS Library - Earth Science, Marine Science, etc...
Yuan Li
01:48:22
We are investigating now how we can work with Frontier for our authors.
Anya Bartelmann
01:49:02
Sometimes the authors ask because they are not familiar with the publisher and are surprised by the APCs
Yuan Li
01:49:37
Understood. It's always good to be cautious.
Meghan Testerman
01:51:08
(In case you are curious about who has the highest APCs in the industry, I pulled some data from early 2021 here: https://www.mtesterman.com/projects/open-data#h.kidjbwp2xpt9 )

Thanks, Meghan.
Yuan Li
01:52:15
No doubt that Springer is on the top with their over $10K APC
Dee Magnoni
01:52:47
@Meghan, thank you!
Martin Heijdra

The presentations were heavy on costs, naturally. But here we see we also gain (OA journals etc.) By definition these don't have prices; but is there any way of quantifying what we gain by having access we don't need to pay for?
Nancy Kranich
02:08:49
When an article is OA and found through the ILS discovery, do users have to still go through the proxy server?
Yuan Li
02:09:03
Martin, that's a very good question. I think we need to start looking at it from that angle too.
Nancy Kranich
02:09:58
For the many users of our catalog who are not registered as students, faculty or staff, they probably still have no access.
