Use Cases 

 

Microbiology Society: reporting use case

Provide article-level metrics of all Open Access (OA) articles published by the Society’s six journals, to stakeholders, when, where and however they need

 

Challenge

P&R clients expect our reports to meet certain industry templates and standards. Our data are to be sourced from multiple internal systems and data feeds. To build full article life cycle metadata, a-synchronous data need to dealt with. And then, feeding this all automatically into the OA Switchboard API in the standard message structure.

Solution

Our Microbiology Society 'custom connector' (with private data store), combining data from several internal sources and turning these into the standardised OA Switchboard P1-messages. Recipients benefit from direct alerts upon VoR publication and article-level authoritative data from the source (=us, the publisher), in a standard messaging protocol. Aggregated, these provide standardised reports. The messages/reports can be fed straight into existing systems for further processing and analysis.

Results

We are operational with all message types and scenario’s, and by mid-September 2021 we sent over 9,000 message since go-live.

Microbiology Society use case 2: supporting authors

Support authors in their publication journey and help them find options to pay for the OA publication charges

 

Challenge

If not covered under a P&R deal (see our first use case), an author's decision to publish their article OA may be influenced by timely clarification if and how the direct publication charges can be covered by their research funder or institution. How to reach out to the holders of such publication funds, and check if the submission meets their requirements?

Solution

Our Microbiology Society 'custom connector' (with private data store), combining data from several internal sources and turning these into the standardised OA Switchboard E1-messages. These Eligibility Enquiries are sent to the author's affiliated institution early in the editorial process, so there is ample time to align the situation with the author.

Results

We are operational with all message types and scenario’s, and by mid-September 2021 we sent over 9,000 message since go-live.
