Osteopathic Medicine: Predatory Publishing: What To Know And How To Avoid Them, Lara Lasner-Frater, Susan Lesser 2018 Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (New York)

Osteopathic Medicine: Predatory Publishing: What To Know And How To Avoid Them, Lara Lasner-Frater, Susan Lesser

Touro College Research Day

This poster presentation discusses predatory publishers and how to avoid them.

Predatory publishers exploit the emerging acceptance of open-access academic journals by making it attractive to publish (especially in a publish or peril world). They aggressively solicit articles from faculty and researchers with the intention of exploiting authors who need to publish their research findings in order to meet promotion, tenure or grant funding requirements.

Cracking The Pubmed Linkout System, Paul Royster, Sue A. Gardner

Library Conference Presentations and Speeches

The University of Nebraska's institutional repository has managed to participate in The NLM’s PubMed LinkOut program to place links to our Green Open Access content in the nation’s premier scientific citations database. This brief presentation describes how and why we worked to be included and what extended effects the integration of those systems (our IR + NLM’s PubMed) can provide.

Unbundling Open Access Dimensions: A Conceptual Discussion To Reduce Terminology Inconsistencies, Alberto Martín-Martín, Rodrigo Costas, Thed N. van Leeuwen, Emilio Delgado López-Cózar 2018 Universidad de Granada

Unbundling Open Access Dimensions: A Conceptual Discussion To Reduce Terminology Inconsistencies, Alberto Martín-Martín, Rodrigo Costas, Thed N. Van Leeuwen, Emilio Delgado López-Cózar

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

The current ways in which documents are made freely accessible in the Web no longer adhere to the models established Budapest/Bethesda/Berlin (BBB) definitions of Open Access (OA). Since those definitions were established, OA-related terminology has expanded, trying to keep up with all the variants of OA publishing that are out there. However, the inconsistent and arbitrary terminology that is being used to refer to these variants are complicating communication about OA-related issues. This study intends to initiate a discussion on this issue, by proposing a conceptual model of OA. Our model features six different dimensions (authoritativeness, user rights ...

Digitalcommons Users Discuss The Bepress Acquisition, Paul Royster, Roger Weaver, Marilyn Billings, Phillip Fitzsimmons, Terri Fishel

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Since the acquisition of the Berkeley Electronic Press (bepress) by Elsevier last summer, there has been much discussion online, in listserves, and elsewhere about what that development means for the future of open access and scholarly communications. The people most directly affected are the users of the bepress DigitalCommons repository hosting service. Some have recoiled in horror at the new ownership situation, others are waiting to see what happens next. This is a panel discussion by current users concerning what they see in the road ahead, including what they regard as essential services, possible options, functionality requirements, and necessary safeguards.

Use Of Assistive Technology In Blind Schools Of West Bengal: A Comparative Study, Sudipta Pradhan, Mahadev Samanta

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

The present study compares use of assistive technology for the visually challenged students provided by the special schools in the Medinipur division under the Districts of Bankura, Purulia, Paschim Medinipur, Jhargram and Purba Medinipur and that of the special schools in the Burdwan division under the districts of Birbhum, Purba Bardhaman, Paschim Bardhaman and Hooghly for providing services to the visually challenged students of secondary and higher secondary level. The study reveals that the institutes meant for the visually challenged should increase access, availability and funding for assistive technology through efforts and initiatives.

The Importance Of Interdisciplinarity: Redefining The Health Belief Model, Ross F. Lordo 2018 University of South Carolina

The Importance Of Interdisciplinarity: Redefining The Health Belief Model, Ross F. Lordo

Senior Theses

Throughout academia, there lacks an existence of a commonly utilized multicomponent and interdisciplinary approach in understanding our outside world. This thesis provides an analysis of the current state of interdisciplinarity and the need to develop interdisciplinary theory. Through this effort, the researcher utilizes the health belief model as a framework that is severely limited in applicable scope due to its constructs. Contrastingly, systems theory and game theory are validated as examples of theories with an interdisciplinary nature. Through the coding of the literature pertaining to the qualitative characteristics of the health belief model, game theory and systems theory, guidelines in ...

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Background: At the Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) Membership Meeting at the 2017 Library Publishing Forum in Baltimore, Maryland, the community discussed how the LPC can respond to the current political climate. The discussion was wide-ranging, but kept coming back to the importance of library values and our responsibility as library publishers to center our publishing practice around them. A number of those present offered to devise a way for the conversation to continue beyond the Forum. That group included Marilyn Billings, Jason Boczar, Rebel Cummings-Sauls, Harrison W. Inefuku, Joshua Neds-Fox, Matt Ruen, Emily Stenberg, and Monica Westin, who proposed a ...

Opening Up: Why Are We Not Using More Open Educational Resources (Oer’S)?, Daniel A. Sabol 2018 Pace University

Opening Up: Why Are We Not Using More Open Educational Resources (Oer’S)?, Daniel A. Sabol

CSIS Technical Reports

Open Educational Resources (OER) have the ability to alleviate student drop out rate, make faculty course design easier, allow faculty to contribute and participate in the OER undertaking that is swiftly spreading through our nation. In addition we are able to save our students $2,000 - $3,000 dollars over the course of their education. This work looks at findings from a survey which was sent out to list serves and direct email to faculty. The survey posed questions to try to determine why faculty were having a difficult time accepting and using OER’s in their own classroom. It ...

Balancing Influence In A Shifting Scholarly Communication Landscape: Creating Library-Owned, Community-Aligned Infrastructure Through Individual, Local, And Community Action, Sarah L. Wipperman, Shawn Martin, Chealsye Bowley 2018 University of Pennsylvania

Balancing Influence In A Shifting Scholarly Communication Landscape: Creating Library-Owned, Community-Aligned Infrastructure Through Individual, Local, And Community Action, Sarah L. Wipperman, Shawn Martin, Chealsye Bowley

Scholarship at Penn Libraries

With the acquisition and creation of scholarly communication platforms/infrastructure by major commercial entities, the balance of influence continues to shift. The ACRL/SPARC Forum at the 2018 ALA Midwinter Meeting brought together library stakeholders for a conversation about how the library community can reassert its influence to shape the open access publishing landscape. Panelists focused on 1) Individual action: “What can one person do?” 2) Local coordinated action: “How can one group or institution effect change?” and 3) Collective action: “How can libraries work together to provide sustainable alternatives?”
