Outline
There are two major ways authors can provide open access (OA) to their work. One is to publish it and then self-archive it in a repository where it can be accessed for free (‘green’ OA). The other is to publish from publishers based on article processing charges (APC) authors pay (‘gold’ OA).

The pioneering work by arXiv enables authors to submit and distribute papers before the publication in peer-reviewed journals. It has been regarded as one of repositories, which we call ‘preprint archive’, and is only for academia. It has been considered that the preprint servers have no relationship to the commercial use of achievements.

Recently, many authors get to submit their papers to the preprint archive in life science (BioRxiv) where researchers in life science have not had preference to submit their works to the preprint. In August 2017, American Chemical Society announced the beta version of preprint server for chemists called ChemRxiv. In spring 2017, Elsevier developed BioRN preprint server for life scientists. These preprint servers are designed to include the data archive, which involves OA to the data (open data) in the publications. Preprint servers are now very important not only in OA but in open science, and its position in scientific information life cycle has changed.

In the 2nd SPARC Japan Seminar 2017, we will review the role and management of the preprint servers in these 30 years and discuss how to contribute to the advancement of scientific research and the issues concerning the importance of the commercial publication, sustainable models of the publication and the quality control of papers with the comments from researchers.

Speaker
Takashi Hikihara (Director General of Library Network in Kyoto University / Representative of the NII Japan Consortia for arXiv.org)

Professor Takashi Hikihara has received PhD in EE from Kyoto University. He joined Kyoto University as an associate professor in 1997 and became a full professor in 2001. He was also a visitor of Cornell University. He has been the Director General of Library Network in Kyoto University since 2012.

Gregg Gordon (Managing Director of Social Science Research Network (SSRN))

Prior to helping Michael C. Jensen, found SSRN in 1994, Gregg worked at KPMG and entrepreneurial companies in technology and healthcare. He speaks around the world and writes regularly about scholarly research and the changes needed to create innovative research faster. Most recently, he co-authored The Question of Data Integrity in Article-Level Metrics, published by PLOS Biology.

Kounosuke Oisaki (Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the University of Tokyo / Deputy-Head, Chem-Station)

Kounosuke Oisaki was born in 1980 in Tokushima, Japan, and received his bachelor degree from The University of Tokyo (UT) in 2003 under the direction of Professor Masakatsu Shibasaki. He obtained his Ph.D. from UT in 2008. Then, he moved to the University of California-Los Angeles, USA, for postdoctoral studies with Professor Omar M. Yaghi. In 2010 he returned to Japan and joined Professor Motomu Kanai's group at UT as an assistant professor. He is currently a lecturer.

Hiromasa Ono (Database Center for Life Science)

Project associate professor in Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS), Joint Support-Center for Data Science Research, Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS) since 2010. Ph.D. in Bioresource Science from Nihon University. Since 2010 in DBCLS, he has been working as an editor in chief of the TogoTV which is introducing how to use useful DB in life science field with videos. Also he has been developing the platforms to interpret large scale data biologically.

Hidemasa Bono (Database Center for Life Science)

After the initiation of FANTOM (Functional Annotation of Mouse) project at RIKEN, he joined the MEXT Integrated Database Project at Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS), which was established in Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS). In DBCLS, they launched the project TogoTV (an archive of tutorial videos expounding how to use biological databases and tools), and now he is involved in the technology development of database integration.

Abstract
arXiv.org Next Generation -Its Opening and Strategy-
(Takashi Hikihara)

arXiv.org has been developed at LANL since 1991, and now is the grandfather of all preprint servers. The server includes Physics, initially, and extended to Math, Nonlinear Science, Computer Science, Statistics, and Finance. New top level subjects of EESS and Econ were opened on this October. It can safely be said that this is a special occasion for arXiv! The idea of the New Generation system and the strategy are offered from MAB meeting and others.

Sharing and the Future of Open Access
(Gregg Gordon)

Open access and digital repositories are important pieces of the research dialogue. The recent addition of Black OA to Green and Gold have asked questions that do not have simple answers. Sharing in general has changed significantly over the last twenty years and Gregg Gordon will provide an overview of the SSRN, from its start in the social sciences to it broad expansion across 30+ disciplines, including life and physical sciences. This talk will include real world experiences, examples of the problems that come from broad sharing, and a view into the future of Open Access and scholarly communications in general.

Preprints in Chemistry
(Kounosuke Oisaki)

Preprint posting as a rapid research communication platform is emerging in various field under circumstances where various problems are appearing in the current peer-reviewing system. Also in the field of chemistry, a new preprint server managed by American Chemical Society (ChemRxiv) was launched and attracting much attention. In this presentation, I will discuss how chemists will use and develop preprints in future chemical research, with reference to some cases. While working as a faculty / researcher at The University of Tokyo, I have been engaged in management of the largest Japanese chemistry portal website (Chem-Station) for many years. I would also like to mention the personal viewpoint from such unique experiences.

Case Examples of Preprint in Life Science Field and My Experience, and Introduction of TogoTV
(Hiromasa Ono)

In the life science field, utilization of preprint is advanced in the past few years as a result of "bioRxiv" being launched in 2013 by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. It is becoming an indispensable effort for researchers who need to catch up with the ever-changing research situation by sharing papers before peer review in advance. Even among researchers around me, the topic of preprints is increasing. The performer himself has not yet experienced the preprint contribution, but he has the experience of registering and publishing all the data in the open repository in advance when submitting a paper, and thinks that such a process will be standard in the future.
