Context Analysis Of Top Seven Retracted Articles: Should Retraction Watch Revisit The List?, Rosy Jan, Shohar Bano, Ikhlaq Ur Rehman Syed, Midhat Mehraj

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Significant and serious scientific misconduct in a research article leads to its retraction. Citing such articles further perpetuates the erroneous work. An article unknowingly builds on false claims of a

retracted article, the new and unsuspicious article may compromise the integrity of the scientific literature. This type of implicit dependency on a retracted article can be highly risky and harmful. Thus the focus of the study is to identify the journals citing the retracted articles with emphasis on the examination of context of citations received by top seven highly cited retracted papers identified and listed by Retraction watch. In-depth analysis ...

A Problem None Can Solve Alone: Ra21 As Collaborative Effort, Jill O'Neill

Collaborative Librarianship

Stakeholders in the information community recognize the challenges surrounding user authentication in the context of licensed information resources. Resource Access in the 21st Century (RA21) is one cross-sector initiative that is intended to reduce those challenges for both academic libraries as well as content and technology providers. Further collaboration by stakeholders may assuage some of the hesitations regarding RA21.

Open Science: A Review On Open Peer Review Literature, Oluwaseyi Wusu 2018 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Open Science: A Review On Open Peer Review Literature, Oluwaseyi Wusu

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Peer review truly, is the king in scientific communication –however, traditional peer review has been accused of many irregularities such as inconsistency and unrealistic peer reviewing, methodology flaws, and the likes. Despite all these irregularities, scholars still believe in peer review but new ways of opening up peer reviews are encouraged. There were high levels of backing for most of the attributes of OPR, such as disclosing identities of reviewers, open reports, open interaction, open platform, commenting on the final-version of published articles or data. Furthermore, the idea of supplementing pre-publication peer review with some form of post-publication evaluation would ...

Major Trends In Lis Research: A Bibliometric Analysis, Oluwaseyi H. Wusu, Nneka G. Lazarus

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This study provides an overview of the Library and Information Science (LIS) research from 1980 through 2017. We employ bibliometric and text mining analyses on a sample of 500 most cited articles to examine the impact of factors such as number of authors, enhanced institutions, document types and keywords on the number of citations that they received. We also investigate major trends in LIS research literature including contribution of different countries, variations across publication years and identifying active research areas and major journal outlets. This study serves as a resource for future studies on LIS trends demonstrating the attributes of ...


Hpl Cares: Leading By Taking Action, Courtney Gill 2018 Hillsboro Public Library

Hpl Cares: Leading By Taking Action, Courtney Gill

OLA Quarterly

Like many Oregon cities, Hillsboro is changing at a fast pace. Rapid growth has created many challenges for the City’s most vulnerable community members. Two top challenges include housing instability and food insecurity. While the library serves as a vital community hub, the Hillsboro Public Library (HPL) continuously seeks to make a greater impact. The Hillsboro Public Library Leadership Team (LLT) approved the formation of the staff-led HPL Cares team. HPL Cares consists of six big-hearted library staff members who took the idea of a library-sponsored community service group and developed a community-focused inspiration team.

The HPL Cares team ...


Followership, Or Leading Up In Libraries In Brief, Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen 2018 Oregon Institute of Technology

Followership, Or Leading Up In Libraries In Brief, Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen

OLA Quarterly

In the 2008 text, The Art of Followership, Chaleff, Riggio, and Lippman-Blumen lay out five traits of effective followers: courage to assume responsibility, courage to serve, courage to challenge, courage to participate, and courage to take moral action. In his 2015 text, Followership: What It Takes to Lead, James Schindler lists four attributes that successful followership is built on: belief in the mission, willingness to work toward the good of the whole, loyalty, and unity of focus. Authenticity also plays a part in both leadership and followership. As a follower, being authentic can help a person be intentional and help ...

Overcoming Isolation As A Form Of Leadership, Julie Gaida 2018 Pacific University

Overcoming Isolation As A Form Of Leadership, Julie Gaida

OLA Quarterly

Working in the technical services department of a small academic library is a bit of an isolation double-whammy: not only are you more removed from the patrons you serve than are your public-facing counterparts, you may also be a department of one and solely responsible for discharging a highly specialized set of duties. This has been the case for me since 2015 when I moved to Oregon after accepting the position of Acquisitions Specialist at Pacific University, a small, private, liberal arts college in Forest Grove. I am primarily responsible for tracking the library’s resource funds; overseeing the ordering ...


Liola: The Long And Winding Road, Jane Corry, Elaine G. Hirsch 2018 Oregon Library Association

Liola: The Long And Winding Road, Jane Corry, Elaine G. Hirsch

OLA Quarterly

This article features a conversation between Jane Corry and Elaine Hirsch about the history and goals of the inaugural Leadership Institute of the Oregon Library Association (LIOLA). Here is an excerpt:

Elaine: In 2014, OLA’s president Penny Hummel created a Leadership Task Force to research options to provide the association’s membership with leadership training opportunities. This is when Jane and I first started working together on leadership initiatives. After breaking ties with Pacific Northwest Library Association (PNLA) in 2010, it became more challenging for OLA members to attend the PNLA Leadership Institute. I was among the Oregon applicants ...


Stepping Up: Applying Situational Leadership Concepts To Public Library Work With Teens, Mark Richardson 2018 Cedar Mill & Bethany Community Libraries

Stepping Up: Applying Situational Leadership Concepts To Public Library Work With Teens, Mark Richardson

OLA Quarterly

Working with teens is fun, nerve-wracking, and never dull. After building and growing a thriving teen council at our library for nearly ten years, I’ve spent some time thinking about what I want teens to get out of their experience at the library. One of the big things that they need and want is to develop leadership skills. Every application for college or scholarships seems to ask how they are demonstrating leadership, so I decided several years ago that I would build in opportunities for them to develop these skills on the council. This has taken the form of ...

Lots Of Ways To Be A Leader, 2018 Pacific University

Lots Of Ways To Be A Leader

OLA Quarterly

In this issue, you’ll find more stories of librarians who, by leading from their individual strengths, have made their libraries, communities, and the Oregon library community better places to be. Jane Corry and Elaine Hirsch kick off this issue with a discussion of the planning and coordination that went into the first LIOLA, and how their own strengths—as defined by the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment around which the LIOLA curriculum was based—influenced and guided that process. Hillsboro’s Courtney Gill writes about how a collaborative, compassion-driven leadership model, combined with strategic outreach partnerships, produced the HPL Cares series ...


Building The Ladder: Developing Leadership Skills Without The Title, Melissa Little 2018 Beaverton City Library

Building The Ladder: Developing Leadership Skills Without The Title, Melissa Little

OLA Quarterly

The leap to library leadership can be difficult if you have no experience in supervision. While larger library systems may have a deep structure that allows employees to start on step one of the ladder and progress one rung at a time to that director position, most of us in Oregon work for smaller libraries where there are few or no successive steps between circulation clerk and director. In these types of organizations, how does someone gain the experience necessary to make one a viable candidate for the job? Because of the diversity of functions from library to library and ...

Volume 24 Issue 2 Introduction, Jane Scheppke

OLA Quarterly

Lots of Ways to Be a Leader Or: I Am a Library Leader, and So Can You!

People tend to have a fixed mindset about who “librarians” are and how library staff should act, represent their profession, and lead. When I say “people,” I am envisioning every public official, captain of industry and Lyft driver who has ever asked me how many people I shush in a day, and then I am envisioning a rain of cartoon anvils. To be fair, I’m also thinking of a younger version of myself, picking out the dowdiest clothes in my wardrobe for ...
