‘Opening The Future’ – A Reliable Funding Model For Open Access Monographs: Introducing An Innovative Approach To Publishing Oa Books Through Library Membership Funding, Kira Hopkins, Tom Grady Apr 2024

‘Opening The Future’ – A Reliable Funding Model For Open Access Monographs: Introducing An Innovative Approach To Publishing Oa Books Through Library Membership Funding, Kira Hopkins, Tom Grady

All Things Open

We outline the work of two university presses (Liverpool University Press and Central European University Press) who are, with assistance from Copim (Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs), running an innovative revenue model to fund open access monographs. Called Opening the Future (OtF) this model builds on library subscription models: giving library members access to a highly-regarded backlist, with the revenue then used to make the frontlist openly accessible to all.

Given the current global library environment and budget pressures, a consortial model of funding promises a cost-effective solution for OA that means no single institution bears a disproportionate burden. …


Using Publicly Available Metadata To Analyze Data Sharing Practices At Oklahoma State University, Rhoda Alawiye, Danielle Kirsch Apr 2024

Using Publicly Available Metadata To Analyze Data Sharing Practices At Oklahoma State University, Rhoda Alawiye, Danielle Kirsch

All Things Open

There is a growing interest in the use of publicly available metadata to convey scholarly impact as well as inform the provisioning of research services. In this study, we used metadata derived from API queries to three online community databases – DataCite, Crossref, and Unpaywall – to analyze datasets shared by researchers affiliated with Oklahoma State University (OSU). Initially, the dataset comprised of a collection of metadata pulled from DataCite, which included information such as dataset title, DOI, authors, publisher, publication year, and relation to other scholarly works. We streamlined the dataset to highlight OSU-affiliated authors and datasets only, corrected …

Library publishing is critical to the expansion of quality diamond open access that is robustly discoverable and properly preserved. The preliminary phase of a research project identified and analyzed Global South library publishers, and gathered data for publisher scale, geography, platform, format, and ethical best practices or other indications of external vetting.


Investigating Researcher Data Sharing Practices Using The Datacite Api, Isaac Wink Apr 2024

Investigating Researcher Data Sharing Practices Using The Datacite Api, Isaac Wink

All Things Open

Institutional requirements and changing scholarly cultures have led to a positive increase in the amount of research data that is openly available. However, academic institutions do not always know much about where their researchers share data and may not be able to provide them support for doing so effectively. When research datasets are poorly described or lack key metadata, they are difficult to discover and therefore unlikely to be reused. Persistent identifiers such as digital object identifiers (DOIs) for research outputs, ROR IDs for institutions, and ORCID iDs for individuals are of particular importance for promoting findability and accessibility. For …


Utopia And Openness: Futures Bound By What We Can Imagine [Keynote], Abbey Elder Apr 2024

Utopia And Openness: Futures Bound By What We Can Imagine [Keynote], Abbey Elder

All Things Open

What’s the catch?” If you work in any Open space, you have likely heard this rebuttal before. Getting access to open content and being able to reuse, share, and build on that material for your own personal or professional interests? That sounds too good to be true. “We can all access this software? I don’t need to log in?” Yes!

But stopping the discussion there does a disservice to ourselves and the movements that make up the wider Open community. It simplifies our messaging in a way that obscures the histories behind our work and the futures we …

Bringing Open Science Training Back To Basics: The Foundations In Open Science Oer, Sinéad Hanrahan Mar 2024

Bringing Open Science Training Back To Basics: The Foundations In Open Science Oer, Sinéad Hanrahan

Publications

Open Science (OS) seeks to apply the concept of openness across all stages of research practice. It aims to facilitate the dissemination of research at speed and to foster collaboration between researchers (Foster Open Science, 2023). OS is an essential aspect of Responsible Research Practice (ALLEA, 2017) and integral to addressing the complex problems facing the world (UNESCO, 2021). It is thus imperative that research performing organisations provide effective OS training. Anecdotal evidence gleaned over five years of OS Training provision suggests that researchers have less understanding of foundational research practices than library OS instructors anticipate. This further suggests that …

Portraits Of Hispanic And/Or Latino Leadership Development In The Military, Michael Lugo

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Abstract

The study presented denotes a continuous transition among the Hispanic and/or Latino demographics in the military and the cadet accounts of military inequality incidents while in the military (Cabrera et al., 2017; Eckel & King, 2004). To assist Hispanic and/or Latino needs based on demographics and environment (National Center for Education Statistics, 2019). Military leaders contribute to growing a diverse, inclusive, and equitable military force for all ethnic groups. The Department of Defense (DoD) is the most racially and ethnically diverse workplace in the United States (Daniel et al., 2022). Nevertheless, racial/ethnic harassment and discrimination in the military continue …

Student Perceptions Of The Efficacy Of A Required Information Literacy Test In The First Academic Year, Howard S. Carrier, David Vess, Kathy Clarke Feb 2024

Student Perceptions Of The Efficacy Of A Required Information Literacy Test In The First Academic Year, Howard S. Carrier, David Vess, Kathy Clarke

The Southeastern Librarian

This paper reports on how one university attempts to instruct all incoming students on information literacy fundamentals using an asynchronous test supported by a suite of related materials. The paper explores how students interpret the efficacy of this model as they move further along in their academic career. Using a mixed-methods approach, with the majority of data being obtained through focus groups, the researchers (librarians employed in the library through which the test is developed), reflect on the advantages and disadvantages to this model, and suggest improvements to further ensure student engagement with this type of information literacy instruction and …

Approaches Of Digital Pedagogies For The Appreciation And Preservation Of Local Trans And Multilingual Cultural Heritages, Stephanie Gonzalez, Sylvia Fernández Quintanilla, Glenn Martínez, Deeann Ivie

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

In an effort to provide culturally and linguistically relevant Spanish as a Heritage Language (SHL) programs in the United States, several language programs have turned to creating digital language learning and teaching materials using various data sources, digital tools, methodologies, cultural practices, digital humanities platforms and projects, as well as Open Educational Resources (OER). This facilitates innovative knowledge production that preserves local translingual and multilingual cultural heritages and identities of Spanish HLLs from multiracial backgrounds in the US in analog and online spaces. Current initiatives in multilingual, decolonial, postcolonial Digital Humanities (DH) are pushing back against the aporias in the …

Historical Qualitative And Quantitative Overview Of Classic Literature Embraced By Rock N’ Roll, 1960-2000, Winifred J. Boyd

Rock music lyrics are often denied their status as influential pieces of literature in much the same way, it seems, as graphic novels, but both are no less effective in conveying a message or eliciting a powerful feeling. Not until October 2016, when Bob Dylan became the first songwriter to win the Nobel Prize in literature since 1913, did lyrics truly get a step closer to being recognized as literature within the boundaries of rock music (Chaudhuri, 2016)? This study was designed to help inspire others to take up the torch to further research: the influence and the power that …

Novel Outreach: A Report Of Public Library Engagement Within Virginia Communities, Joy Doukas

SLIS Connecting

This study seeks to showcase how Virginia Public Libraries have harnessed the power of innovative outreach to service populations traditionally resistant to library adoption. It examines concepts such as community partnerships, the library as a Third Place (Thiele & Klagge, 2020), and the increasing function of social services in the public libraries sphere. It highlights the evolution of modern public libraries from mere book repositories to thriving community centers for education and personal growth. Mining current website data, this study explores each of the 94 public library systems in Virginia websites, determining their reach throughout their communities to show what …

Fanfiction Today: An Analysis Of Publishing Trends On Archive Of Our Own, Lauren Moore

SLIS Connecting

Fan spaces offer a unique opportunity for fans to come together and interact with people who share their interests. Today, you can find fandoms for almost every piece of media, person, or group (Ewens, 2020). These can be rich communities that produce both digital and physical works related to their interest. The physical works that predated the digital have included things like fan-published zines which were often shared at a convention. While these are still popular, the last few decades have seen more and more digital spaces emerging. Artists are selling works on sites like Etsy, Redbubble, and Gumroad. Digital …
