Wiki Version:
Publisher Scoring System ======================== *A Scoring System to Evaluate Publishers’ Practices through the Lens of Library Values* <hr /> This system has gone through several revisions. Below are links to the current version, previous versions, and related files. In brief, journal publishers earn points in this scoring system by engaging in practices that demonstrate partnership with libraries, educators, and researchers. Library Partnership (LP) certification is calculated using a method similar to the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for architectural and building projects. In LEED certification, architectural projects "earn points for various green building strategies across several categories. Based on the number of points achieved, a project earns one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum" ( Where LEED certification assesses a building project’s practices in “credit categories” such as water efficiency or indoor air quality, LP certification assesses a publisher’s practices in four categories: Access, Rights, Community, and Discoverability. A publisher's partnership score reflects an overall achievement of credits. This score places them in one of four levels or tiers, Tier 1 (highest partnership practices) through Tier 4 (lowest partnership practices).
