Inequalities Of Publishing, Charlotte Roh

Over the past year, students from over academic students have made demands to "an end to systemic and structural racism on campus." (http://www.thedemands.org/) The most popular demand is for more faculty and staff of color. As part of the effort to address the disparities in representation amongst faculty of color, scholarly communication librarians at the University of Massachusetts have partnered with the Graduate Students of Color Association to educate future faculty – namely, graduate students - on 1) the process of publishing 2) how to network with publishers and editors, and 3) how to understand the systemic biases in ...

Publishing Undergraduate Research: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?, Allegra Swift 2016 Claremont University Consortium

Publishing Undergraduate Research: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?, Allegra Swift

Library Staff Publications and Research

Scholarly communications are evolving rapidly; there are shifts in how research is communicated, what counts for scholarship, and who is doing the communicating. Undergraduates are contributing to the scholarly conversation but with little education in what it means to participate online as a scholar, much less as a global digital citizen. Many faculty members engage in scholarly communication as they always have and are often unaware of the rapid developments in publishing and sharing research. Librarians with responsibilities in publishing, scholarly communication, and instruction are especially challenged to meet these gaps in digital literacy. Publishing undergraduate scholarship can be perceived ...


Librarian Engagement And Social Justice In Publishing, Charlotte Roh, Emily Drabinski, Harrison W. Inefuku 2016 University of San Francisco

Librarian Engagement And Social Justice In Publishing, Charlotte Roh, Emily Drabinski, Harrison W. Inefuku

Digital Repository Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

Countless studies and personal narratives have demonstrated that cultural, racial, and gender bias influence important aspects of academia, including in traditional book and journal publishing. Scholarly communications and LIS publishing can challenge the traditional modes of publishing both in format and content. Presenters will discuss their work in this area, addressing topics like race, culture, sexuality, and gender in formats like print books, online journals, and institutional repositories. Presenters will also talk about how to talk to faculty and graduate students about the entire scholarly communication lifecycle, and how they can intervene to circumvent cultural bias and injustice.

Pilot Data Information Literacy Competencies Matrix Scaffolded Across Undergraduate, Graduate And Data Steward Levels, Megan R. Sapp Nelson 2016 Purdue University

Pilot Data Information Literacy Competencies Matrix Scaffolded Across Undergraduate, Graduate And Data Steward Levels, Megan R. Sapp Nelson

Libraries Faculty and Staff Scholarship and Research

Initial work in identifying data management or data information literacy skills went as far as identifying a list of proposed competencies without further differentiation between those competencies, whether by discipline, complexity, or use case. This article describes a significant innovation upon existing competencies by identifying a scaffolding (built upon existing competencies) that moves students progressively from undergraduate training through post graduate coursework and research to post-doctoral work and into the early years of data stewardship. The scaffolding ties together existing research that has been completed in research data management skills and data information literacy with research into the outcomes that ...

House Librarians As Instructors In A Self-Directed, Capstone-Related 3rd Year Flexible Clinical Experience Program, Catherine W. Carr, Len L. Levin, Colleen J. Burnham

Catherine W. Carr

PURPOSE/PROBLEM STATEMENT

In academic year 2010/2011, the University of Massachusetts Medical School introduced a new, longitudinal, integrative curriculum (LiNC). One component of this new curriculum was the introduction of Learning Communities or "Houses.". Five Houses were formed to allow inter-class interaction, each that would serve as the medical student's academic and social home. A librarian from the Lamar Soutter Library was attached to each House. Two new components of the LiNC curriculum were a) a longitudinal, cumulative capstone project and b) a 3rd year Flexible Clinical Experience (FCE) program. The first was a natural fit for the ...

Predator And Prey: A Study In The Prevalence Of Articles Originally Published By “Predatory Publishers” In An Institutional Repository, David C. Dunham 2016 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Predator And Prey: A Study In The Prevalence Of Articles Originally Published By “Predatory Publishers” In An Institutional Repository, David C. Dunham

David C. Dunham

The problem of academics publishing in journals of dubious quality, published by so-called "predatory publishers" is only increasing. A group of IPFW faculty members, concerned about the problem and the affect it could have on their departmental reputations and the futures of graduate students credited as co-authors on such works, approached the IPFW Helmke Library about examining the issue as it manifested itself within Opus, our institutional repository. This led to a year long study which involved sifting through every journal article uploaded to the repository one at a time and comparing their publishers with those listed on Beall's ...


Albertsons Library Data Management Strategic Agenda, Margie Ruppel, Megan Davis, Michelle Armstrong, Amber Sherman 2016 Boise State University

Albertsons Library Data Management Strategic Agenda, Margie Ruppel, Megan Davis, Michelle Armstrong, Amber Sherman

Michelle Armstrong

Albertsons Library Data Management Strategic Agenda outlines areas of emphasis and specific activities that the library will engage in over the next two years (January 2015 - December 2016) in support of its data management services initiative. These activities will help define an evolving framework where the library serves as an active partner throughout the scholarly and research lifecycle. The foundation for this framework is a commitment to collaboration, open information sharing and discovery, and a focus on providing point of need services.


Combining Faculty, Instructional Design, And Library Services To Provide Students A Framework For Information Evaluation, Linda Leake, Samantha McClellan 2016 University of Louisville

Combining Faculty, Instructional Design, And Library Services To Provide Students A Framework For Information Evaluation, Linda Leake, Samantha Mcclellan

Samantha McClellan

The creation of the course-embedded Critical Thinking & information Evaluation Module series resulted from the need for undergraduate students to start their academic careers with a framework for evaluating information. Pulling from the Paul-Elder Critical Thinking Framework and focusing abstract information literacy concepts on the commonly-used resources of Wikipedia, Google, and scholarly journal articles, the presenters will delve into module creation to implementation of these modules and discuss the logistics of this process to guide other faculty-librarian-instruction designer collaborations.

The Role Of Librarians In Data Science: A Call To Action, Elaine R. Martin

Elaine R. Martin

Many academic institutions and their libraries have developed research data services, but sometimes institutional objectives, professional organizations, and librarians’ current and future roles aren’t always in sync. In this issue of the Journal of eScience Librarianship, librarians report on moving forward with various services, but frequently face institutional and professional obstacles.

Open Peer Review At Four Stem Journals: An Observational Overview [Version 2; Referees: 2 Approved, 2 Approved With Reservations], Emily Ford 2016 Portland State University

Open Peer Review At Four Stem Journals: An Observational Overview [Version 2; Referees: 2 Approved, 2 Approved With Reservations], Emily Ford

Emily Ford

Open peer review, peer review where authors' and reviewers' identities are disclosed to one another, is a growing trend in scholarly publishing. Through observation of four journals in STEM disciplines, PLOS One, Atmospheric Chemistry & Physics, PeerJ, and F1000Research, an observational overview is conducted. The overview relies on defined characteristics of open peer review. Results show that despite differing open peer review implementations, each journal retains editorial involvement in scholarly publishing. Further, the analysis shows that only one of these implementations is fully transparent in its peer review and decision making process. Finally, the overview contends that journals should clearly outline ...
