In Memory of Gil Loescher

Source: NBC26.com
I was very sad to learn that Prof. Gil Loescher had passed away in Oxford on 28 April 2020. He was a prominent figure in the refugee studies field, as a teacher, scholar, policy advisor and much more. In 2003, Prof. Loescher was gravely injured in the devastating Canal Hotel bombing in Baghdad, when he and his colleague Arthur Helton were meeting with UN officials as part of an openDemocracy project. The attack claimed 22 lives, including Helton and Sergio Vieira de Mello, and wounded many others. His daughter later made a documentary film called "Pulled from the Rubble" about his experience.

Prof. Loescher was a prolific writer and editor and produced numerous works throughout his academic life, among them studies of UNHCR, protracted refugee situations, and refugee policy and governance. My first introduction to him was through the very useful resource, The Global Refugee Crisis: A Reference HandbookHis most recent book, Refugees: A Very Short Introduction, is expected next year.

Tributes have been posted by the Refugee Studies Centre, the Kaldor CentreLERRN at Carleton Univ., UNHCR and the Univ. of Notre Dame. I will link to more as they become available. In addition, a web site has been set up in his memory.

Blog Series: Patterns in Open Access Publishing - Pt. 3

Observations:

The first two posts in this series (here and here) reported the results of an analysis of 257 open access articles published in 174 different journals that had been referenced on my blog over a 5 1/2 month period between 1 Oct. 2019 and 15 March 2020. This post shares a few observations and takeaways regarding patterns of open access (OA) publishing in the forced migration context.

1. How do forced migration authors make their articles open access?

The articles in my sample were distributed across four different OA categories: gold, hybrid, diamond and green. The first two OA types charge authors publication fees (APCs), while the latter two are cost-free to authors. In my sample, the scale was tipped slightly in favor of APC-articles, with 53% of the articles published in gold and hybrid journals versus 47% published in diamond journals or deposited as eprints via the green route.

Even after the articles were divided into two author subsets -- Global North and Global South -- the pattern did not change very much. There continued to be a similar tilt toward publishing in APC journals for the GN group: 54% gold and hybrid OA versus 46% diamond and green OA. And the GS group had essentially an even split of articles published in APC versus APC-free journals.

Where the picture looks different is within the Global South author subset: 76% of articles by Southern authors alone (i.e., solo authors or South-South co-authors) were published in the diamond category, whereas 77% of the articles with a collaboration of North-South co-authors were published in the gold and hybrid categories.

A larger study is necessary to determine whether or not this pattern exists beyond my small sample. I plan to conduct an analysis of refugee-related articles indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), which will include a mix of both diamond and gold categories.

2. What "pay-to-publish" costs, if any, are required to make forced migration articles open access?

As noted above, just over half of the open access articles in my sample were published in gold and hybrid journals that charge an APC when an article has been accepted for publication. An analysis of the fees charged by the journals in my sample found that hybrid OA APCs were significantly higher: an average of $2995/median of $3000 versus an average of $1646/median of $1595 for gold OA APCs. This is consistent with findings by other studies (see, e.g., Pinfield et al. 2017).

Who actually pays these APCs? While the bill may go to authors, the fee is often covered by an author's academic institution, research grants, or agreements between universities and journal publishers (see, e.g., the participants in the Public Library of Science's Institutional Account Program). Or the APC may be discounted through other funding arrangements such as membership programs with specific journal publishers (see, for example, BioMed Central's membership list). Finally, some authors, primarily those based in low-income countries, may be eligible for APC waivers.

Since the APCs for hybrid OA are generally higher, these fees are often excluded from funds that cover publication costs. As an alternative, certain types of agreements have been negotiated between publishers and university libraries that cover hybrid publishing costs for authors. (See examples of  these agreements specifically in the Netherlands or check this registry for a more comprehensive listing.)

It was not possible to verify whether or not the authors in my study paid an APC, or received a discount or waiver. In general, though, it would appear that authors based in the Global North have access to a greater variety of funding support options than authors based in the Global South. A quick look at the various lists linked to above shows that the entities funding APCs or entering into agreements with publishers are largely based in Western Europe and North America.

Therefore, finding that the GS authors in my sample 1) tended to publish in diamond (APC-free) journals, 2) collaborated with GN authors to publish in gold journals, and 3) were less likely to publish in hybrid OA journals, is likely consistent with the results of other similar analyses.

3. What about the green open access category?

Only 15% of the articles in my sample fell into the green OA category. Within each of the two subsets, 19% of articles by GN authors were green, while a mere 3% of articles by GS authors were green. While this option offers the greatest flexibility to authors in terms of publishing in their journal of choice, it also requires that they invest more time and effort in the process, such as keeping track of eprint versions of articles, understanding publisher policies regarding self-archiving (particularly embargo periods for postprints), and learning where eprints can be deposited. A better understanding of author attitudes towards green OA is required in order to draw broader conclusions.

That said, in order to deposit an eprint at all, an author's article must first have been published in their journal of choice. To what extent is this the case for GS authors in the forced migration context? Two recent analyses found that articles published in the Journal of Refugee Studies and Migration Studies were more likely to be written by authors affiliated with institutions in the Global North than by authors affiliated with Global South institutions. More research is required to determine if this pattern persists across other key migration journals.

4. What is the geographic representation of forced migration authors who publish open access articles?

In my sample, a majority of the open access articles (75%) were produced by authors affiliated primarily with institutions in Europe, North America and Australia. Only 25% of the articles had at least one author affiliated with a Southern-based institution and only 18% listed a first or solo author from the Global South. Overall, the 719 authors were affiliated with institutions based in 57 different countries, 29 in the North and 28 in the South.

Since my study sample was comprised of articles that had been referenced on my blog, it is limited in a few key ways. First, in terms of language: Most articles that I reference are in English, with a few others in French or Spanish. Second, in terms of subject area: For example, I dramatically reduced my coverage of health-related issues last year. Greater linguistic and thematic diversity would undoubtedly have increased Southern representation.

To date, a greater number of Northern institutions have adopted open access mandates that require researchers to provide open access to their research. This may help to explain the higher percentage of GN authors represented in my sample. Yet, as this article points out, the share of open access articles being published in Asia, Africa and Latin America is growing quickly. As such, employing new strategies to retrieve relevant open access articles from other types of journal databases and portals is essential to ensure the ongoing development of a more diverse collection.

News: 2020 Global Report on Internal Displacement

The 2020 Global Report on Internal Displacement (GRID) has been published. It estimates a record high total of 50.8 million people displaced within their own countries. From IDMC's press release:

"The Global Report on Internal Displacement (GRID) estimates that 45.7 million people are living in internal displacement as a result of conflict and violence in 61 countries, the majority in Syria, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Yemen and Afghanistan. Another 5.1 million in 95 countries are displaced because of disasters. This includes 1.2 million people displaced by years of drought and floods in Afghanistan, more than 500,000 by monsoon rains in India and 33,000 whose lives are still uprooted a decade after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. ...Contributing to these record figures, 33.4 million new displacements were recorded in 2019, the highest annual figure since 2012."

For more information, see this Q&A with the IDMC director and New Humanitarian article.

Blog Series: Patterns in Open Access Publishing - Pt. 2

Overview of Results: Authors

The 257 articles in my sample were written by a total of 719 authors, with a range of 1 to 13 per article. The institutional affiliations of authors were used to determine geographic representation.  This post looks at where authors were located and compares the publishing patterns of those based in the Global North (GN) versus the Global South (GS).*

1. Author subsets

Two article subsets were created in order to more closely analyze the types of OA articles published by authors based in the Global South versus the Global North. For this purpose, any article with at least one GS-affiliated author was designated as a GS article. In some cases, authors indicated multiple affiliations, with one institution that was located in the GN and another in the GS. When this occurred, the article was assigned to the GS subset.

Global South Authors

All in all, 65 unique articles (or 25% of the total sample) had at least one author based in the Global South. Here is the breakdown of types of OA articles within the GS subset, as well as the number of solo vs. co-authored articles.

31 (48%) = diamond OA (14 by solo authors; 12 South-South collaborations; 5 North-South collaborations)
25 (38%) = gold OA (8 South-South coll.; 17 North-South coll; no solo GS authors)
7 (11%) = hybrid OA (all North-South coll.)
2 (3%) = green OA (both North-South coll.)

How often were GS-based authors listed as the first author?
- 14 articles with solo authors
- 20 articles with all GS co-authors
- 13 articles with a mix of North-South co-authors that listed a GS author first

In sum, a total of 47 articles, or 72% of the GS subset and 18% of the total article sample, listed a first or solo author from the Global South.

Global North Authors

A total of 192 unique articles (or 75% of the overall sample) were published by authors affiliated solely with Global North institutions. Here is the breakdown by OA type within the GN subset (with a surprisingly even distribution across the first three categories):

53 (28%) = hybrid OA
52 (27%) = diamond OA
50  (26%) = gold OA
37 (19%) = green OA

2. Country representation

The graph below provides a ranking of the 257 articles in the sample based on the country affiliations of each article's solo or first author. A total of 48 countries made the list, with 28 in the GN and 20 in the GS.


As noted above, the articles in my sample were written by a total of 719 authors; the graph above focuses on lead authors. A comprehensive list that reflects all locations of Southern-based authors, including co-authors, would add the following eight countries: Bangladesh; Chile; Iraq; Myanmar; Pakistan; Peru; Thailand; and United Arab Emirates.
