    What is the DOE's Policy?


    In February of 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a memorandum requiring that most federally funded research be made freely accessible to the general public. A formal DOE policy followed, and the Lab subsequently created its own consistent policy. In short, all work from Lab scientists must be made publicly available. This is usually referred to as “open access.” This is mandatory, and it is retroactive to October 2015.


    It is a DOE and UC requirement that all publications associated with Berkeley Lab be tracked and linked to an Open Access version. The Open Access version may be a copy of the published version of the paper if the journal permits it, a link to permanently open access version at a journal or other repository, or the author's final peer-reviewed manuscript. More information on these situations is available within the tool. For our compliance purposes, this open access policy applies from October 2015 onward.


    What Does It Cover?


    Your work is subject to the policy if

    (tick) It was funded by the DOE through LBNL

    (tick) It was done by an LBNL employee

    (tick) If some or part of the work was done at LBNL 


    Your work is outside the policy if

    (error) You have a joint appointment and the work was done outside Lab facilities, under the auspices of your other institution

    (error) It was done by non-Lab staff at a user facility. This research may be subject to other open access requirements, but it does not fall under the Lab’s mandate.



    Managing your publications is an easy process that can be completed in just a few short steps: 



    You will periodically get emails (approximately every 2 weeks) notifying you that there are publications in the system awaiting your attention. Log in to the publications management database (unhelpfully called Elements) using your LDAP. Make sure you select LBL as your location even if you also have a faculty appointment. 

    • From your home page menu select Manage > Publications. 

    • The system will show you 3 tabs: 

    • Claimed publications (publications you have identified as yours); 

    • Pending publications (publications the system thinks might be yours, and is asking you to confirm)

    • Rejected publications (publications you have said are not yours)


    Every claimed publication requires a copy of the article and funding information to be considered compliant with the DOE’s funding mandate. 

    (warning) Article deposits must not violate publisher copyright. If your article appears in a subscription journal or behind a paywall, the published version IS NOT compliant.     

    • Acceptable versions include 

      (tick) Open Access articles. Either the doi or the published PDF are fine. 

      (tick) The peer-reviewed, accepted, version of the manuscript. This is the last version you sent to the publisher before typesetting/proof/publication. 

      (tick) Preprints such as arXiv (use the most recent version).

    • Funding links

      (info) Funding is typically the Department of Energy’s “Office of Science”

      (info) If you have a sub office of the Office of Science funding your work, such as Basic Energy Science or High Energy Physics, include those if possible. 

    Once a publication has been claimed, deposited, and linked to funding, Elements will send it to the DOE and it will be counted as compliant. If you need to enter a publication from scratch into the system, see the step by step guide linked in the LBNL Publications Management Resources section.

    Berkeley Lab Open Access Publication Resources


    Open Access is a broad term that refers to publications in various states of “openness”, meaning that no subscription or paywall prevents you from accessing a given journal or, in many cases, just a specific article. Some publishers are entirely Open Access, some just allow Open Access for certain publications, and some allow Open Access just for individual articles (there is usually an additional fee associated with this). 

    Open Access publications usually leave copyright in the hands of the author (as opposed to the publisher), and allow for varying degrees of re-use (commercial, non-commercial) under a Creative Commons License. Here’s a short guide to the different types of Open Access publications. 

    Technically the DOE’s mandate is “Public Access” since not all publications covered by the policy appear in OA publications. This is why, in many cases, uploading the final published article into the Elements publications management database is not permitted.  


    We’re working to compile helpful resources for scientists looking to publish in Open Access venues. Check this space periodically for updates or email [email protected] with any suggestions or requests. 

    Open Access Journals listed here are categorized here as “Gold”, meaning the entire journal is Open Access, or “Hybrid” meaning a number of possibilities exist for Open Access publishing in that specific journal. To find out more about a specific journal you can visit the journal website, or Journal Citation Reports. You can also search for Open Access titles in addition to those listed here, using the Directory of Open Access Journals

    Note: Some predatory publishers also “publish” Open Access. There’s no independent body that officially labels an organization “predatory” but you can access a pretty thorough list here

    Current Publication Statistics


    Lab statistics are updated monthly. You can get the most recent data here. If you have a question about historical data, or need something more detailed than what’s on this page, contact publicati[email protected] and use the subject line “OSTI Compliance Data”. OSTI is the Department of Energy's "Office of Scientific and Technical Information". 


    FY2019 OSTI Target: 70%


    LBNL Status through May 2020: 75.7%



    FY 2020 OSTI Target: 80%


    LBNL Status through February 2020: 37%



    Lab specific publications are available on UC eScholarship, the University of California’s institutional repository for publications and datasets.

    If you’re looking for a specific book or article, you can try the LBNL Library, where you can order books and articles to be delivered from campus and place Interlibrary Loan requests.  

    The Lab provides subscriptions to several online databases including SciVal, Scopus, and Web of Science. More information about these databases can be found on the LBNL Library website. 

    Lab users can also access the UC Berkeley Library resources. Books can be requested to the lab, or checked out on campus. Your Lab ID serves as your library card.

    The Research Services team maintains a small, incomplete, repository of historical LBNL reports and other documents. Unfortunately we do not have a complete record of all reports ever produced at the Lab, nor a detailed finding aid (title, author, date, etc). However, if you know the number of the report you're looking for, feel free to browse this list. If it's on here, then you can email [email protected] to obtain a copy.

    Publications Management FAQ


    What is publications management?

    This is the broad term we use to refer to the Lab's responsibility to track its scholarly output. A primary driver for publications management is our need to comply with federally mandated open access requirements. In short: the Lab must make a freely available version of all our work available to the public, and we must be able to show this to the Department of Energy. The Lab has additional interests in tracking our publications output, such as building up division, group, and individual public profiles, gathering statistics and analytics, and tracking productivity.


    Do I have to upload ALL my papers?

    For our compliance purposes, you need only supply open access copies for articles published using DOE funding on or after October 1, 2015. Articles written in that period that are not DOE-funded or written while at the lab do not fall under the OA policy.


    What types of work should I submit?

    The DOE has guidance on this here. In short, any scientific and technical information is appropriate, including journal articles, reports, conference papers, etc. There are some types of items, such as books and book chapters where copyright may not allow you to upload a published or pre-publications full-text manuscript. In that case, you can simply submit or claim without providing the full text.


    Should I uploaded drafts of unpublished work? Can I use the system to "hold" work to be published later?

    No. First, you will not generally see records of work in the system unless it has already been published. This is because the system finds work by searching databases of published materials. So, typically, the only way unpublished work will find its way into the system is if you or a colleague have done so manually. This is typically the case for reports and conference papers.

    Of course, we want to have all the Lab's reports and conference papers in the system as well, we only ask that you not upload work that isn't finished. That includes work that is under legal review, that has an indefinite embargo on publication, or any other reason that would cause you to want to change the document that has been uploaded to the system after the fact. (Published work from a publisher that requires an embargo for open access is fine.)


    What if I’m a Joint Appointee? Do I have to do this twice?

    All joint appointees should have a single account that reflects this status. In a few cases separate accounts exist for a person as a Lab Researcher and as a Faculty Member. If this is the case, please contact [email protected] for assistance.


    I'm getting reminder emails for publications that I published from another appointment or from before my time at the Lab. How do I make them stop?

    First, you do not have to do anything with publications that you did not publish while at the Lab. If you click "Not externally funded" during the funding-linking step during claiming, you should not receive further notifications about that publication. If you did not click that link during the claiming process, you can get back to that screen by opening the publication record in the Publications Management System and scrolling down to "Links", then clicking the triangle next to "Create Links" and choose "Grants" from the dropdown The "Not externally funded" button should be on that page that opens. Clicking the button essentially marks the pub as not LBL work.

    If you are being asked to claim and deposit work that you did before you joined the lab, but which has been published since you joined (ie is not subject to the DOE’s policy) please email [email protected] with the relevant information. 


    Should I claim and upload papers I published before I came to the Lab?

    You do not have to claim or upload any work prior to your tenure at the Lab.

    We recommend that you do claim such work, however, as that will help the publications management system create a complete CV for you. We plan to eventually roll out a Lab-wide website with profiles of all our researchers, and you will probably want that to reflect all of your work. For that purpose, you do not need to provide funding information or deposit the accepted manuscript. You may simply skip those steps.


    The publications system has two (or more) separate records for the same publication. How can I fix that?

    You can merge the multiple records into a single record. See instructions here or contact [email protected] for assistance. 


    I'm trying to link grants, but the system doesn't show any! How do I see the DOE program offices?

    In the grants search filter, be sure to select "linked to" → "Anyone".


    How do I link my publications to non-DOE funding?

    The Lab is only required by the DOE to link pubs to it own program offices, therefore, we have only populated DOE program offices into the system. You will find other funders in the system that were put there by other campuses (this system is shared with all the UC campuses), but you are under no obligation to do anything with those. If you want to link to a finding source not listed (for example, if you want to generate reports for such funders), we can add it for you (contact [email protected]), but that would be for your own convenience; the Lab doesn't do anything with non-DOE funding data.


    Will the system assign LBNL Numbers?

    Not presently. If you need an LBNL number, email [email protected] or fill out this form and we will manually generate one for you and mail it back. You will have to edit the record you have just created and paste it in. We will continue to work with the vendor to see if we can make this work better. If so, we will back-annotated LBNL numbers when that functionality becomes available.


    How does entering a report differ from entering a journal article?

    Fundamentally, there is not much difference, except for the fact that the system is likely to find your published journal articles on its own, so you can simply claim them. Reports, on the other hand, are unlikely to appear on external databases, so are not "out there" to be found. Because of this, you will have to enter reports manually, by choosing "add a new publication" under the Menu -> Publications tab. You can add a journal article this way, as well, but to do so is probably just creating extra work for yourself, as the journal article will likely be found sooner or later. However, for journals articles that have been published for some time and are not being found by the system for some reasons, you are certainly encouraged to add them manually as you would a report.


    I can't log in!

    We have used HR data including your job code to attempt to determine if you are likely to publish or not. Some people who have job codes not typically associated with research may indeed publish. If you believe you should be in the system but are not, we can add you. Simply email [email protected].


    I can't find the funding office appropriate for my publication.

    In the normal claiming flow, after claiming a pub, you are brought to a screen for linking funds. Unfortunately, that screen only shows a list of potential funding offices that you have already used, plus the six top-level DOE offices. If you need to link to an office not listed, click "grant not shown" and proceed with your deposit. When you are done, go to Menu => Create Links, and choose "grants on the right side. Then modify the filter to search for the office of interest. Be sure to make sure "Linked to" is set to "Anyone" – or else you will have the same issue that it only shows you offices you have previously used. All the DOE offices and many external ones are in the list.

    If the office you need is still not in the list, email [email protected] for some help finding it or getting it added.


    What about legal review for IP? Does uploading papers to the OA database also submit them for IP review?

    No. Legal review (for patent and intellectual property concerns) is a separate pre-publication (ideally pre-submission) process. Upload a draft of your work to http://go.lbl.gov/pubreview before submitting to a journal. A lawyer will contact you.


    Can I get someone else to do this for me?

    Yes, users that you authorize can act on your behalf. There are two ways to do this. Once way it use use the menu system in the tool to nominate a delegate. (Menu => My Account => Account Settings => Manage Delegates). In addition, certain people have been pre-authorized to act on behalf of anyone in their division or group. You can find out who they are by examining this spreadsheet. You can find instructions for delegating a user to act on your behalf here.


    I am an administrator and would like to help a researcher, but I cannot access his/her account.

    Ask the user to log in and enable you as a delegate. If you need to help many researchers (a division, for example), email [email protected] and we'll take care of it for you.


    How often are new publications harvested?

    The system searches a number of databases, such a Web of Science and Scopus, for each member of the Lab's research staff. When it is complete, it starts over and does this continuously. A typical iteration takes between 24 and 48 hours.


    Can I enter scholarly output other than journal articles?

    Yes! And please do! Books, book chapters, conference papers, data sets etc. are all subject to the DOE's requirements. If you are entering the record from scratch (using "add new publication") can proceed normally for a "add a new book" or "add a new chapter". One of the secondary screens in the process will ask your relationship to the work, and you can choose among "author", "contributor to", "editor", or "translator" etc.


    Does the system search Google Scholar?

    It does not. Google forbids accessing Scholar for this purpose.


    I have an ORCID, Publons ResearcherID, or Scopus ID. Can I enter these so the system can better match my work to me?

    YES PLEASE! Entering these special identifiers to the system (Menu → Publications → Automatic Claiming) allows the system to positively match you to work and automatically claim it. You still have to add the funding info and upload the papers, but at least the claiming step is taken care of.

    Note also that if you claim a pub that has one of those IDs associated with it, the system will ask you if you want to associate that ID with you. Check that it's your first and choose yes.

    You may find that the system has some ID's that it thinks may be yours that you know not to be yours. By rejecting these, you will make the system search more effective and you will get fewer nag messages about false positives.

    For ORCID, you will need to provide your ORCID password to link the account. Hence, a delegate cannot generally do this for you.


    I have some old papers to upload, but they do not have the correct acknowledgments or contract number on them. Do I need to modify them to be consistent with current practices before uploading?

    No, do not feel as if you need to spend time working on old documents. If you can find the paper and upload it that’s great.


    I can't tell which papers are open access and which are not. Because of our lab subscriptions, I don't see any paywalls. How do I know which journals are open-access?

    When depositing, you can check the "Sherpa / RoMEO" advice tab. You can also access SHERPA/RoMEO directly. Another useful resource is the Directory of Open Access Journals.

    Introduction

    After more than two years of negotiations, in March 2021, the University of California announced a transformative open access agreement with Elsevier, the world’s largest academic publisher.  

    The four-year agreement goes into effect on April 1, 2021, restoring LBNL’s direct online access to Elsevier journals while accomplishing the university and lab’s two goals for all publisher agreements:

    (1)   Enabling universal open access to all LBNL research; and

    (2)   Containing the excessively high costs associated with licensing journals.

    These goals directly support LBNL’s responsibility as a steward of public funds and their mission to make their research freely available.

    Terms of the Agreement

    The four-year agreement runs from April 1, 2021, through March 2025 and incorporates open access publishing. Also, the agreement restores LBNL’s reading access to Elsevier’s journal titles and upholds the university’s goal to manage its costs for academic journal subscriptions responsibly.  

    This agreement provides: 

    • Reading access for Elsevier journals: Effective April 1, LBNL will regain access to articles published in Elsevier journals that the libraries subscribed to before, plus other journals to which LBNL previously did not subscribe.

    • Open access publishing in Elsevier journals: LBNL researchers can publish OA in more than 2,300 Elsevier journals with significant library support: 

      • A reduced article processing charge for all articles (15% for most journals; 10% for journals from Cell Press and The Lancet)

      • Complete coverage of the article processing charge by the library for authors who do not have access to grant funding

      • Partial coverage of the article processing charge by the library for authors who can contribute from their grant funding

    Open access will now be the default option for UC/LBNL corresponding authors, although authors may opt-out if they wish.

    For Authors

    Are UC/LBNL Authors Affected by this Agreement?

    Yes, if you are: 

    1. An LBNL author or a UC affiliate (faculty, lecturer, staff, graduate student), AND

    2. You are the article’s corresponding author, AND

    3. You choose to publish your article open access in Elsevier’s titles (see below under “Which journals are included in the agreement?”)

    When you choose to publish your article open access in these Elsevier journals, UC has negotiated a deal that makes it more cost-effective for you to do so. Suppose you want to publish in Elsevier journals but do not want your article to be open access. In that case, you can still publish your article as paywalled content (available only to those with a paid subscription to the journal). 

    All LBNL employees and UC faculty, lecturers, staff, and students have access to read articles published in Elsevier journals the libraries subscribed to before, plus other journals to which LBNL previously did not subscribe.

    Who is considered a corresponding author?

    Elsevier defines a corresponding author as the individual who takes primary responsibility for communication with the journal during the manuscript submission, peer review, and publication process. 

    Typically, the corresponding author also ensures that all the journal’s administrative requirements, such as providing details of authorship, ethics committee approval, clinical trial registration documentation, and gathering conflict of interest forms and statements, are appropriately completed. However, these duties may be delegated to one or more co-authors.

    Why am I being asked to use program funds?

    The LBNL libraries are committed to paying a substantial share of the article processing charge for all UC authors, including full payment for authors who do not have grant funds available. However, the libraries’ budget alone cannot cover the total cost of open access publishing for every LBNL author while also continuing to pay for subscription access where needed.

    Every author’s contribution is important and significant because even with library support, authors’ research funds continue to play a critical role in funding open access publications. The funding model for this Agreement depends upon authors who do have funds paying their share of the Article Processing Charge (APC). 

    In general, publication costs can be charged to federal grants in the U.S. By contributing grant funds, particularly from federal agencies, LBNL authors demonstrate their commitment to making their publicly-funded research accessible to the public. Open Access publishing remains the simplest way to comply with the Department of Energy's public access mandate, although other routes to compliance are available to authors." Additionally, participating in this way ensures the pool of available funds for LBNL authors who do not have grant funding will be available to support their open access publishing.

    What if I don't have any grant money? Can I still publish open access with Elsevier?

    You can still publish your article with open access. If you do not have grant money or your grant funds are insufficient to cover the remainder of the article processing charge beyond the libraries’ standard contribution, the LBNL libraries will pay your full Article Processing Charge pr APC.


    What types of publications are covered by this agreement?

    This agreement covers all articles included in the journals outlined below (see under “Which journals are included in the agreement?”), as long as they have the option for paying a fee for open access (an Article Processing Charge or APC).  These include:

    • full length articles

    • short communications

    • short surveys

    • reviews

    • data in brief

    • case reports

    • microarticles

    • original software publications

    • video articles

    • insights

    • protocols

    Which journals are included in the agreement?

    The agreement will provide for open access publishing of LBNL research in Elsevier hybrid and fully open access journals, totaling nearly 2,300 Elsevier journals. However, a limited number of societies that partner with Elsevier for their publishing have chosen to exclude their journals from transformative agreements, so their journals are not eligible for either reading, publishing, or both under the agreement.  A list of these exclusions will be available soon.

    All Cell Press and Lancet journals are part of the UC agreement. For these top journals, UC shared funding model — where the libraries share the cost of open access publishing with authors — will be phased in, with all Cell Press and Lancet journals integrated no later than 2023, midway through the four-year agreement. Until these journals are phased in to the agreement, UC corresponding authors publishing in Cell Press and Lancet journals can still choose to publish open access; authors will receive a 10% discount on the open access fee (known as an Article Publishing Charge or APC) from day one, but will not receive additional library support until these journals are integrated into the contract.

    If I publish open access under this agreement, will I retain rights/copyright to my own work?

    No, but the University of California will retain rights/copyright to your own work. As an employee at LBNL, you signed an Intellectual Property Acknowledgement in which you have assigned copyright to your works to the University of California. One of the benefits of publishing open access under this agreement is that the University of California retains copyright to your work.  The Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license will be the default selection. Please select the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives (CC BY NC ND) license.  You can learn more about these Creative Commons license options here.

    What if I don't want to publish open access? Can I still publish with Elsevier?

    Yes. Where and how you publish is your decision. The agreement with Elsevier does not mandate open access publishing nor does it dictate your journal selection. Rather, it makes open access publishing a more affordable option for most Elsevier journals, and you can opt out. 

    If I choose to publish open access, how do payments work?

    Beginning April 1, 2021, if you are a UC/LBNL corresponding author of an Elsevier article in one of the eligible journals, at the time your article is accepted, you will be presented with the option for open access publication, which will appear as a default choice.

    For authors who elect open access, a contribution of $1,000 from the UC/LBNL libraries towards the open access fee for the article will be made automatically. If there is any remaining balance due on the fee (beyond the $1,000), Elsevier will ask UC/LBNL authors if they have research funding available to cover the balance and, if not, the UC/LBNL libraries will pay the rest of the open access fee as well.  Authors who contribute research grant funds towards the remaining balance will be asked to supply invoicing information for payment.  The UC/LBNL library payments will be handled directly between the UC libraries and Elsevier with no action required by the author.

    Authors will still have the option to decline the open access option and publish their articles on a subscription (pay-to-read) basis if they so choose.

    Every author contribution is important and significant, because even with library support, authors’ research funds continue to play a critical role in funding open access publication. The funding model for this Agreement depends upon authors who do have funds paying their share of the Article Publishing Charge or APC.
