Research Data Management Instruction For Digital Humanities, Willow F. Dressel 2017 Princeton University

Research Data Management Instruction For Digital Humanities, Willow F. Dressel

Journal of eScience Librarianship

eScience related library services at Princeton University started in response to the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) data management plan requirements, and grew to encompass a range of services including data management plan consultation, assistance with depositing into a disciplinary or institutional repository, and research data management instruction. These services were initially directed at science and engineering disciplines on campus, but the eScience Librarian soon realized the relevance of research data management instruction for humanities disciplines with digital approaches. Applicability to the digital humanities was initially recognized by discovery of related efforts from the history department’s Information Technology (IT ...

Shake It Off: Journal Of Escience Librarianship Edition, Regina F. Raboin, Julie Goldman, Lisa A. Palmer

Library Publications and Presentations

The library publishes JeSLIB through its eScholarship@UMMS repository on the bepress Digital Commons platform.

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

Nataly Blas

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.


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.

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 ...

Cq Authors’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies And Practices, Michael Lynn

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Academic journals can only publish what is submitted to them, so their editors need numerous high quality submissions to consistently publish high quality articles. To encourage more high quality submissions to Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ), I implemented a number of what I considered to be author-friendly editorial policies and practices when I became editor.
