Assessing the openness of one electronic resource.

Using  “How Open is It?” as a reference, I will assess the openness of the Undergraduate Journal of Mathematical Modeling: One + Two based on:

  • reader rights

Free readership rights
to all articles immediately
upon publication
http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/ujmm/all_issues.html

  • reuse rights

Reuse, remixing, &
further building upon the work
subject to certain restrictions
& conditions (e.g., CC BY-NC
& CC BY-SA licenses)
http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/ujmm/about.html

  • copyrights

Publisher holds copyright,
with some allowances for
author and reader reuse of
published version
http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/ujmm/policies.html

  • author posting rights

Author may post
any version to any
repository or website
automatic posting
http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/ujmm/policies.html

  • Journals make copies of articles

automatically available in trusted
third-party repositories (e.g.,
PubMed Central) immediately
upon publication
LOCKSS member. Digital Commons, http://network.bepress.com/.

  • metadata readability

Article full text, metadata, citations, &
data, including supplementary data,
provided in community machinereadable
standard formats through a
community standard API or protocol

This journal rates the highest level of access in all but two areas, where they place user usage restrictions of  Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike 3.0 license and require publisher attribution with author reuse.  This journal can be accessed directly at http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/ujmm/.  It is also indexed down to the article level within DOAJ:  http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=search&template=&uiLanguage=en&query=Undergraduate+Journal+of+Mathematical+Modeling&filter=media%3A%22journal%22&filter=media%3A%22article%22.
