Extending And Measuring Scholarly Reach And Impact, 2018 University of Central Florida
Extending And Measuring Scholarly Reach And Impact, Lee Dotson, Sarah Norris, Barry Mauer
Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works
In this session, Scholarly Communication Librarian Sarah Norris and Digital Initiatives Librarian Lee Dotson will explain how faculty can further publicize, disseminate, and measure the reach of their scholarship through UCF’s Showcase of Text, Archives, Research & Scholarship (STARS). Benefits of using this digital repository of scholarship include enhanced searchability and tracking of impact using alternative metrics. The session will also feature faculty member Barry Mauer, who has created a successful author profile and collection in STARS.
Making The Mission Visible: Altmetrics And Nontraditional Publishing, 2018 University of Maine
Making The Mission Visible: Altmetrics And Nontraditional Publishing, Jennifer Bonnet, Marisa L. Mendez-Brady
Whereas traditional book and journal publishing remain the gold standard for many post-secondary institutions, nontraditional publishing is just as prolific at the flagship university in Maine. The university has strong land and sea grant missions that drive a broad research agenda, with an emphasis on community outreach and engagement. However, the impact of researchers’ contributions outside of academe is unlikely to be accurately reflected in promotion, tenure or review processes. Thus, the authors designed a series of altmetrics workshops aimed at seeding conversations around novel ways to track the impact of researchers’ diverse scholarly and creative outputs. This paper presents ...
The Secret Lives Of Ebooks: A Paratextual Analysis Illuminates A Veil Of Usage Statistics, Jonathan H. Harwell, Erin Gallagher
This study applies the method of paratextual analysis to six electronic books, or ebooks, in an academic library collection at a small liberal arts college. Two books are selected from each of three platforms: ebrary, EBSCO, and SpringerLink. The characteristics of each book are described, including design and readership, as well as 2 years of usage statistics from the specific library, and altmetrics where available. The paratextual study leads to a closer investigation of the usage statistics themselves and concludes that despite industry standards, they are not calculated consistently across vendor platforms and that while these data are invisible to ...
Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, 2018 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration
Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, Michael Lynn
[Excerpt] Peer review is an important part of the scientific process. It helps to separate good research from bad so that scarce journal pages and readers’ attention go the former rather than the latter. As editor of Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ), I am particularly dependent on reviewers’ help because CQ is a cross-disciplinary journal whose submissions cover literatures and methodologies that vastly exceed my ken.
Big Deal: Should Universities Outsource More Core Research Infrastructure?, Roger C. Schonfeld
Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.
Research universities have developed in symbiosis with a robust set of commercial providers that serve their needs. From food service providers to run dining halls to private equity firms to manage parts of the endowment, outsourcing has allowed universities to remain more focused on their core educational and research functions. But universities have also at times elected to outsource academic infrastructure. Commercial firms have developed a major role in several significant university functions, including scientific publishing, library management systems, and course management systems. And in all three cases, the commercial priorities of vendors have at times left academia frustrated. While ...

Zea Books Manuscript Preparation Guidelines – Festschriften & Edited Books, Paul Royster
About Zea E-Books
- Manuscripts should be submitted as .doc, .docx, or .rtf files, normally in Microsoft Word.
- If possible, a .pdf version should accompany the file, especially if non-Latin fonts are used.
- Notes should be numbered and placed at the end of the file or in a separate file. They will appear on-page in the finished book, but separating them at this stage makes for easier handling.
- Approximate locations for art should be indicated in the text, e.g.:
- Figure captions should be placed at the end or in a separate file.
- Please be consistent in your use of headings. The general ...

The Doctoral Dissertation And Scholarly Communication: Adapting To Changing Publication Practices Among Graduate Students, 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
The Doctoral Dissertation And Scholarly Communication: Adapting To Changing Publication Practices Among Graduate Students, Roxanne Shirazi
Publications and Research
As graduate students begin to publish earlier in their careers, the relationship between the doctoral dissertation and scholarly publishing is evolving. Many students now include their own previously published work in a dissertation, requiring instruction in publication contracts and copyright transfer agreements at the point of submission to the graduate school. There are repercussions to publishing as a graduate student for which our institutions are not well prepared, and to which librarian could apply our expertise. This article briefly reviews the history of dissertation publishing and introduces issues surrounding the use of previously published materials in doctoral dissertations.

Using Existing Bibliographic Resources To Compile Faculty Publication Lists: A Case Study From San José State University, 2018 San Jose State University
Using Existing Bibliographic Resources To Compile Faculty Publication Lists: A Case Study From San José State University, Ngoc-Yen Tran, Emily K. Chan
Faculty and Staff Publications
With limited campus resources for faculty scholarship, the College of Science (CoS) at San José State University (SJSU) developed scholarly output metrics as a way to add a quantitative component to the distribution of funds, to ensure objectivity, and to reward proven researchers. To support CoS's efforts to identify and quantify science faculty research publications, we compiled a bibliography of science faculty research and scholarship which would be used to develop and formalize baseline research metrics. Using existing and available resources including librarian time, subscribed science databases, and the institution-subscribed reference citation manager, we developed a method by which ...

A Quick Look At Nvivo, 2018 Purdue University
A Quick Look At Nvivo, Margaret Phillips, Jing Lu
Libraries Faculty and Staff Scholarship and Research
NVivo (QSR International, n.d.a) is software developed by QSR International for qualitative data analysis, such as content analysis and narrative analysis. The software provides a workspace for researchers to store, manage, query, and analyze unstructureddata, including text, images, audio, video, and other data types. NVivo has been used inmany library and information science studies, including to analyze interview data (Wiley& Mischo, 2016), student assignments (Insua, Lantz, & Armstrong, 2018; Phillips & Zwicky, 2017), and survey data (Gibbs, Boettcher, Hollingsworth & Slania, 2012). NVivo allows users to complete multiple qualitative analysis functions on the platform, including sorting and filtering raw data, discovering and building relationships amongdata, assigning and defining themes ...
The Study Of The Relationship Between Perceived Richness Of Information Resources At Academic Library And Attitude Towards Using Them, 2018 Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Khouzestan, Iran
The Study Of The Relationship Between Perceived Richness Of Information Resources At Academic Library And Attitude Towards Using Them, Mohammad Reza Farhadpoor
Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)
This study aimed to investigate the relationship between perceived richness of information resources at academic library and the attitude to use them by students' of Islamic Azad University of Ahvaz; and conducted by an analytical survey method. Using stratified random sampling 380 students were selected and data were collected using researcher made questionnaire. Results showed that the students have no tendency (mean=3.2281) to use the information resources of library. Meanwhile, the library information resources in terms of update (mean=3.2281), accessibility (mean=3.1702), quality (mean=3.1342), transparency (mean=3.1325) and quick feedback ability (mean ...
