Sabbatical Report: Summary Of Survey Results On Digital Preservation Practices At 148 Institutions, Meghan Banach Bergin 2013 University of Massachusetts

Sabbatical Report: Summary Of Survey Results On Digital Preservation Practices At 148 Institutions, Meghan Banach Bergin

Meghan Banach Bergin

The purpose of my sabbatical project was to identify institutions with established digital preservation programs, and investigate how these programs were implemented. To accomplish this task, I conducted a web-based survey that looked into what systems were being used for digital preservation, what services were offered to the campus or user community, staffing and organizational models to support digital preservation programs, as well as the costs associated with these various digital preservation programs. I received a total of 148 responses to the survey. Of the 148 responses, 100 respondents finished the survey. To follow up from the survey, I conducted ...

Publishing Open Access E-Journals: Leveraging An Outreach Opportunity, Laura Edwards, Linda Sizemore, Kelly Smith

Library Faculty and Staff Papers and Presentations

Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) Libraries began exploring the institutional repository (IR) landscape in 2009 with the intention of publishing electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), journals, special collections, images, videos, sound files, or anything else that would fit a need for us. The hosted systems we examined were effective as either platforms for displaying special collections or platforms for managing publishing processes. However, we didn’t find a system that did both of those things well.

Public Philosophy Of Technology, Dylan E. Wittkower, Evan Selinger, Lucinda Rush 2013 Old Dominion University

Public Philosophy Of Technology, Dylan E. Wittkower, Evan Selinger, Lucinda Rush

Philosophy Faculty Publications

Philosophers of technology are not playing the public role which our own theoretical perspectives motivate us to take. A great variety of theories and perspectives within philosophy of technology, including those of Marcuse, Feenberg, Borgmann, Ihde, Michelfelder, Bush, Winner, Latour, and Verbeek, either support or directly call for various sorts of intervention—a call that we have failed to adequately heed. Barriers to such intervention are discussed, and three proposals for reform are advanced: (1) post-publication peer-reviewed reprinting of public philosophy, (2) increased emphasis on true open access publication, and (3) increased efforts to publicize and adapt traditional academic research.

Technology Innovations In Publishing: New Directions In Academic And Cultural Communication., Elisabeth Tappeiner, Kate Lyons

Publications and Research

Over time, publishing technologies have not only influenced how people read, but also how knowledge is evaluated and authority is established. Social and mobile technologies represent relatively recent developments that have transformed the trade publishing world, but the extent to which they have affected academic publishing remains an open question. This article examines the rapid and disruptive transformations in the trade and digital publishing world, discusses how these developments have already intersected with the work of academics and considers how these changes might continue to transform the dissemination of academic research in the future.


Implementing Institutional Repository (Ir) System In A Multi-Campus International University: Nuts And Bolts, Ashraf Sharif 2013 Aga Khan University

Implementing Institutional Repository (Ir) System In A Multi-Campus International University: Nuts And Bolts, Ashraf Sharif

Libraries

The Aga Khan University (AKU) is serving through eleven campuses spread across eight countries in three continents. It has a network of eleven libraries, although small in size, in five developing courtiers in three regions (South Asia, East Africa, and Europe). The university has recently implemented an Institutional Repository (IR) system to show-case the intellectual and scholarly output of the university. The selection of this system was done after a thorough study of available platforms, and in line with AKU vision and mission. The stakeholders were involved in decision making. After a careful evaluation of the teams involved, Digital Commons ...

Open Access To Scholarly Articles: Good Policies Ensure Good Practices, Jill Cirasella

Open access (OA) to scholarly journal articles is now widely accepted as a good thing. However, it will not become the norm without policies promoting openness. This presentation looks at policies that ensure that hundreds of thousands of articles become OA every year.


Open Access To Scholarly Literature: Which Side Are You On?, Jill Cirasella 2013 CUNY Graduate Center

Open Access To Scholarly Literature: Which Side Are You On?, Jill Cirasella

Publications and Research

Open access (OA) to scholarly literature recently hit a major milestone: Half of all research articles published become open access, either immediately or after an embargo period. Are the articles you read among them? What about the articles you write? Are the journals to which you submit open-access friendly? What about the journals for which you peer review? Are there any reasons why the public should not have access to the results of taxpayer-funded research?

This presentation explains the motivation for OA, describes the details of OA, and differentiates between publishing in open access journals (“gold” OA) and self-archiving works ...

Publisher Support For Self-Archiving: Laudatory Or Predatory?, Denise Troll Covey

Denise Troll Covey

Most publishers with self-archiving policies in the SHERPA RoMEO database allow authors to deposit their articles in a repository or post them to a website – supporting the green route to open access. Nevertheless, the Association of American Publishers (AAP) enthusiastically endorsed legislation proposed and defeated twice in the United States to prohibit federal agencies from mandating repository deposits of articles reporting on research they funded. The AAP also endorsed the Finch Report issued in the United Kingdom. The Report denigrated repository deposits and elevated open access publishing – the gold route to open access – as the preferred path to expand public ...

A Critical Analysis Of The Serials Crisis In Scholarly Publishing: A Gramscian Perspective, Paul St-Pierre 2012 Western University

A Critical Analysis Of The Serials Crisis In Scholarly Publishing: A Gramscian Perspective, Paul St-Pierre

Paul G. St-Pierre

This paper examines the LIS literature pertaining to the serials crisis, evaluating its dominant theoretical perspective. It then explores the problem using the theoretical lens of the Marxist writer Antonio Gramsci in an attempt to obtain a deeper critical understanding of the power dynamics that exist in the arena of scholarly publishing. A program of research is outlined with examples of several issues that could be further explored from a Gramscian perspective.

Leveraging Shared Publishing Platforms: What We Are Learning, Irene Perciali

Irene Kamotsky

Digital Commons now hosts over 500 journals published by libraries under the rapidly growing “library as publisher” model, which enables the ability to look at data across all the journals to track trends, to foster a community of nascent library-publishers, and to connect journals to third parties and to each other in meaningful ways. This presentation will explore these issues:

• Journal performance benchmarking data Detailed data from across all journals hosted on Digital Commons will be used to consider various questions, including: How do student journals compare to faculty journals? What programs and fields are the best candidates for library-led ...
