In April 2016, the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) launched the Next Generation Repository Working Group to identify new functionalities and technologies for repositories. In this report, we are pleased to present the results of the work of this group, including recommendations for the adoption of new technologies, standards, and protocols that will help repositories become more integrated into the web environment and enable them to play a larger role in the scholarly communication ecosystem.

Uno Open Access Fund Statistics: What Do They Tell Us?, Yumi Ohira

Yumi Ohira

Institutional digital repositories provide open access to research outputs created within a university or research institution. Many institutions currently support open access by paying article processing charges (APC) for their affiliated faculty and researchers. The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Libraries started the Open Access (OA) Fund program in 2014 to help cover the APC of tenure-track UNO authors. The fundamental goals of the UNO OA Fund is to include and encourage the UNO community to publish their research in an OA journal and platform, DigitalCommons@UNO (http://digitalcommons.unomaha.edu/).

Credible Journal Working Group In Action!: Collaborating To Create Positive Change In Scholarly Publishing, Shilpa Rele, Nataly Blas, Marie Kennedy

Scholarly communication issues, such as access, research, and the promotion of scholarly communities are at the core of university libraries’ values. This session will demonstrate how to put the values of librarianship into practice at your institution by addressing the publishing needs of your faculty. At Loyola Marymount University, a medium-size, private institution, three librarians were tasked to assist faculty in the publishing process, in particular, help faculty choose credible and reliable journals in which to publish. This session will outline difficulties encountered with publishing by faculty, the case for the library’s involvement, and techniques to promote scholarly publishing ...

Journal Evaluation Tool, Shilpa Rele, Marie Kennedy, Nataly Blas

Nataly Blas

The changing mechanisms of scholarly publishing may make it difficult for you to determine where to publish the results of your research or creative works. In order to assist you in making the best decisions for your work, and to avoid journals that may not be credible, the William H. Hannon Library has developed a rubric for the evaluation of journals. Our focus during the development of this tool was specifically to address the concerns of our Loyola Marymount University faculty about Open Access journals, but this rubric may be applied more broadly to any kind of journal.

Stuck In The Middle: Re-Defining What Successful Scholarly Communications Programs Look Like, Janelle Wertzberger 2017 Gettysburg College

Stuck In The Middle: Re-Defining What Successful Scholarly Communications Programs Look Like, Janelle Wertzberger

Musselman Library Staff Publications

What are the goals of your scholarly communications programs and services, and how do you define success? Critics and proponents alike often attempt to paint the scholarly communications movement with a broad brush. Both groups seem to push for a common definition of what the movement should look like and how success should be defined. In the world we live in today, these loudest voices are often amplified through their use of social media, listservs and prominent roles on the conference circuit, leaving some in the middle to question their own success and whether they have a place in this ...


Scholarly Communication And Social Justice: Pushing To Subvert Traditional Publishing Power Structures, Charlotte Roh 2017 University of San Francisco

Scholarly Communication And Social Justice: Pushing To Subvert Traditional Publishing Power Structures, Charlotte Roh

Charlotte Roh

Scholarly communication and the open access movement has come a long way in its acceptance in the academic environment. However, the economic models of open access have not been as open and free as anticipated, and this is because publishing models are still rooted in traditional power structures. What can libraries do to subvert these imbalances? 

The American University Library's Colloquium on Scholarly Communication features experts from both American University and the larger academic community presenting on challenges for academia in the twenty-first century.

All aspects of the collaboration and process will be discussed including successes, failures, roadblocks and campus-wide wins. Presenters will discuss on how the library leveraged their knowledge to solidify a relationship with the Office of Research, the Faculty Center, and other partners around campus to stimulate need and engage in conversations with faculty and administrators. This was all accomplished with no set position dedicated to these needs, and one reference and instruction librarian ...

Researchgate Vs. The Institutional Repository: Competition Or Complement?, Julia Lovett, Andrée Rathemacher

Technical Services Faculty Presentations

Poster, "ResearchGate vs. the Institutional Repository: Competition or Complement?," presented at the 2017 Charleston Conference: Issues in Book and Serial Acquisition, What’s Past is Prologue, on November 8, 2017 in Charleston, South Carolina.

"The popularity of ResearchGate and Academia.edu indicates that scholars want to share their work, yet to librarians tasked with implementing an Open Access policy, it can appear as though faculty are willing to invest more time uploading articles to academic social networks—often in violation of publisher policies—than in submitting articles for deposit in the institutional repository. In this session, we will present the ...

Open Humanities: Strategies For Creating Open Access Course Materials, John Venecek, Christian Beck, John Raible, Sarah A. Norris, Lily Flick

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

As textbook affordability and access to information become important topics on university campuses and within the population more generally, finding ways to decrease book costs in a humanities classroom while providing the best possible resources for students emerges as a multi-disciplinary strategy that requires cooperation across campus. Open Access texts are a way to offer content for free, but humanities assembling this type of text in the humanities is often restricted by copyright and intellectual property. Utilizing materials found in public domain or with a Creative Commons license, however, provides an opportunity to create Open Access texts. In spring 2016 ...


Easier Author Identification, Joe Cera 2017 Berkeley Law

Easier Author Identification, Joe Cera

Joe Cera

This lightning talk would discuss our efforts to make it easier to identify authors and retrieve a full list of works in the repository. We rely on existing identifiers and standards resulting in no added costs and no new identifier systems. We are currently adding ISNI, VIAF, Library of Congress, and Institutional identifiers for each faculty member (where available). We have also added an indexed field in our Digital Commons instance to allow searching by those identifiers. The system can easily accommodate new identifiers and allows filtering that is not normally available in the Digital Commons search methods.
