Copy(Write): Intellectual Property In The Writing Classroom, Martine Rife, Shaun Slattery

Textbooks

The editors of Copy(write): Intellectual Property in the Writing Classroom bring together stories, theories, and research that can further inform the ways in which we situate and address intellectual property issues in our writing classrooms. The essays in the collection identify and describe a wide range of pedagogical strategies, consider theories, present research, explore approaches, and offer both cautionary tales and local and contextual successes that can further inform the ways in which we situate and address intellectual property issues in our teaching.

Patron-Driven Acquisition – Working Collaboratively In A Consortial Environment: An Interview With Greg Doyle, Greg Doyle, J. Cory Tucker 2011 Orbis Cascade Alliance

Patron-Driven Acquisition – Working Collaboratively In A Consortial Environment: An Interview With Greg Doyle, Greg Doyle, J. Cory Tucker

Collaborative Librarianship

Patron-driven acquisition models for electronic and print books have become extremely popular in the past two years and in most cases this service has been implemented at many individual libraries. One unique collaborative model of patron-driven acquisition was created by the Orbis Cascade Alliance through a partnership with Ebook Library (EBL) and Yankee Book Peddler (YBP). This unique project is an example of libraries, consortia, and vendors working together to develop new business models during times of financial constraint, where libraries and consortia are exploring various “just-in-time” acquisition models. Collaborative Librarianship spoke with Greg Doyle about the project at Orbis …

How To Write A Good Paper In Computer Science And How Will It Be Measured By Isi Web Of Knowledge, Rǎzvan Andonie, Ioan Dzitac 2010 Central Washington University

How To Write A Good Paper In Computer Science And How Will It Be Measured By Isi Web Of Knowledge, Rǎzvan Andonie, Ioan Dzitac

All Faculty Scholarship for the College of the Sciences

The academic world has come to place enormous weight on bibliometric measures to assess the value of scientific publications. Our paper has two major goals. First, we discuss the limits of numerical assessment tools as applied to computer science publications. Second, we give guidelines on how to write a good paper, where to submit the manuscript, and how to deal with the reviewing process. We report our experience as editors of International Journal of Computers Communications & Control (IJCCC). We analyze two important aspects of publishing: plagiarism and peer reviewing. As an example, we discuss the promotion assessment criteria used …

Collaborating With Faculty To "Start Up" An Open Access Journal, Marianne A. Buehler 2010 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Collaborating With Faculty To "Start Up" An Open Access Journal, Marianne A. Buehler

Library Faculty Presentations

University faculty have ongoing pressure to publish their research findings and teaching successes and produce scholarship worthy of tenure. Acceptance to publish an article in a journal can be highly competitive and in some fields of study, there are few journal publication options. With the advent of open access (OA) publishing opportunities, academic libraries are fulfilling a need by supporting sustainable models of scholarly communication that include collaborating with faculty and editors to “start up” an OA journal or convert a traditional print journal to OA. Some faculty would prefer to transcend the traditional publishing model and may not be …

Feast And Famine: More And Better Choices, But Belt-Tightening Forces Libraries To Cut Subscriptions, Carol Tenopir, Gayle Baker, Jill E. Grogg 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Feast And Famine: More And Better Choices, But Belt-Tightening Forces Libraries To Cut Subscriptions, Carol Tenopir, Gayle Baker, Jill E. Grogg

School of Information Sciences -- Faculty Publications and Other Works

With fancy new software developments and growth in both the richness of content and delivery options for information resources, the Database Marketplace 2010 is a feast for buyers. Unfortunately, institutional budget cuts may force more of a famine mentality--with belt-tightening for most, and only purchases that are life-sustaining being served in many libraries.

Measuring The Value Of The Academic Library: Return On Investment And Other Value Measures, Carol Tenopir 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Measuring The Value Of The Academic Library: Return On Investment And Other Value Measures, Carol Tenopir

School of Information Sciences -- Faculty Publications and Other Works

Return on investment (ROI) is one method of measuring the value of a library's e-journal collection. In an international study designed to test an ROI formula developed as a case study at the University of Illinois, ROI of the value of e-journals to grants income was found to vary depending on the mission and subject emphasis of the institution. Faculty members report that e-journals have transformed the way they do research, including making them more productive and competitive. Future studies will examine ROI beyond grants income and beyond the value of e-journal collections.


Cross Country Comparison Of Scholarly E-Reading Patterns In Australia, Finland, And The United States, Carol Tenopir, Concepción S. Wilson, Pertti Vakkari, Sanna Talja, Donald W. King 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Cross Country Comparison Of Scholarly E-Reading Patterns In Australia, Finland, And The United States, Carol Tenopir, Concepción S. Wilson, Pertti Vakkari, Sanna Talja, Donald W. King

School of Information Sciences -- Faculty Publications and Other Works

Surveys of academic staff in Australia, Finland, and the United States from 2004-2007 reveal reading patterns of e-articles by academics that can be used to measure the purpose and value of e-reading and to demonstrate the value of library-provided electronic journal collections. Results can also be used to compare differences across subject discipline, age, and national boundaries, and how the decisions that libraries make influence reading patterns. The surveys used a variation of the critical incident technique to focus on the last e-article read, whether from the library collection or from elsewhere. Readings from e-journals and articles provided by libraries …


Copyright And Education: Lessons On African Copyright And Access To Knowledge, Tobias Schonwetter, Jeremy de Beer, Dick Kawooya, Achal Prabhala 2010 University of South Carolina

Copyright And Education: Lessons On African Copyright And Access To Knowledge, Tobias Schonwetter, Jeremy De Beer, Dick Kawooya, Achal Prabhala

Faculty Publications

The African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) project is a pan-African research network of academics and researchers from law, economics and the information sciences, spanning Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda. Research conducted by the project was designed to investigate the extent to which copyright is fulfilling its objective of facilitating access to knowledge, and learning materials in particular, in the study countries. The hypotheses tested during the course of research were that: (a) the copyright environments in study countries are not maximising access to learning materials, and (b) the copyright environments in study countries …
