Is this aimed at promoting Open Access or is it just another way to make money out of Gold?

Hard to tell. It all depends on the value of the service offered and on the profit rate.

Wait and see...

Trouver des articles en OA sur Science Direct

Les éditeurs commerciaux sautent tous peu à peu dans le train de l’Open Access, en proposant aux auteurs de « libérer » leurs articles : moyennant finance (des frais de publication, « article processing charges » ou « APC »), lesdits articles sont accessibles sans abonnement pour tous. Oui, mais comment repérer ces articles ? En effet, la démarche de libération restant individuelle, les articles en open access sont éclatés dans des revues différentes, du coup, difficile de les retrouver, ou de les compter. J’ai donc décidé d’aller voir de plus près ce que les éditeurs nous proposent en matière de signalement des contenus OA, en commençant par Elsevier.

Confusions in the OSTP OA Policy Memo -- Three Monsters and a Gorilla

The US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), part of the Executive Office of the President, has issued a sweeping policy memo entitled, “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research.” It directs all federal research agencies to develop and implement open access (OA) plans over the next 2-3 years.

While the basic concepts presented in the memo are relatively simple, there are significant administrative complexities. Having worked on federal administrative procedure systems for many years, I will look at the OSTP OA mandate from that perspective, especially how it might affect publishers and authors. There are several big challenges which I call three monsters and a gorilla

“Cataloging Unchained”

“Cataloging Unchained” | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Lorcan Dempsey (VP of Research at OCLC) has long said that we need to “make our data work harder.” And for years that is exactly what OCLC Research has been doing. So when I was asked to speak on data mining at the OCLC European, Middle East, and African Regional Council Meeting in Strasbourg, France, I knew I would have a lot to talk about. Too much, in fact.

Publications scientifiques en open access : ne pas jeter le bébé avec l’eau du bain !

Publications scientifiques en open access : ne pas jeter le bébé avec l’eau du bain ! | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Il est en effet souhaitable d’utiliser toute la gamme des modes de diffusion des connaissances scientifiques, en particulier la puissance des ressources en ligne, pour faire connaître largement les progrès accomplis dans le monde de la recherche. Il est encore plus légitime, quand on connaît les tarifs prohibitifs d’abonnement de certaines revues internationales, que les institutions universitaires puissent revendiquer un accès gratuit aux travaux publiés par leurs propres chercheurs, financés par l’argent public – et comme président, je ne peux qu’être sensible à cette question qui est posée aux bibliothécaires universitaires. La situation actuelle, qui voit le budget de nos bibliothèques absorbés par quelques éditeurs internationaux en situation d’oligopole qui font payer très cher la diffusion de revues, en particulier dans le domaine des sciences expérimentales et naturelles, doit cesser !

Cependant, tous les domaines ne sont pas dans la même situation...

Suivi de l’avis sur l’open access publié en juin 2012

Dans le contexte très évolutif des réflexions et des prises de position sur les publications ouvertes par le Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche (MESR) et au niveau européen par la commission , le COMETS réaffirme son engagement en faveur de l’accès libre et gratuit aux publications scientifiques des résultats de la recherche publique et précise ici certaines des recommandations de son avis publié en juin 2012, qui soulignaient la complémentarité nécessaire des systèmes « Open Access gold » et « Open Access green ». Le présent texte du COMETS concerne le renforcement des archives ouvertes HAL, mises en place par le CNRS il y a dix ans.

Scholarish: Google Scholar and its Value to the Sciences

In scientific and academic circles, the value of Google Scholar as an information resource has received much scrutiny. Numerous articles have examined its search ability, but few have asked whether it has the accuracy, authority and currency to be trustworthy enough for scholars. This article takes a look at reliability factors that go into Google Scholar citation counts, selection of resources, and its commercial partnerships. Research data culled from correspondence with Google Scholar, analysis of citation metrics, metadata and search processes, and an appraisal of its strengths and weaknesses compared to other science-specific indexes led to the conclusion that Google Scholar may be useful for initial and supplemental information gathering, but lacks a deeper reliability than other existing services currently provide scholars. Advice is offered to science librarians about how to regard Google Scholar as a research tool.

Higher Education & Research Citation Impact in BRICK countries moves towords world average, impacting innovation and wealth creating according new sciencewatch report

Higher Education & Research Citation Impact in BRICK countries moves towords world average, impacting innovation and wealth creating according new sciencewatch report | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Korea—the BRICK nations—have repeatedly been noted for their growing influence in the global economy and research landscape, and are often referred to as "emerging." What would move them from emerging to established?

To capture a better understanding of their progress, we reviewed data on R&D spending, human capital, research publications, and patent filings—key indicators of the sustained, diversified research innovation base enjoyed by many of the G7 knowledge economies. The data not only confirm and quantify the rising status of countries beyond the G7 axis as a group, but also spotlight the individual complexities that offer a richer tapestry behind the "emerging" label.

For the analysis, this report draws on data from Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge, Derwent World Patent Index, and third-party data, including the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Red de Indicadores de Ciencia y Tecnología (RICYT), and the World Bank.

 

The authors: "Investment in higher education and research builds up a country’s knowledge capacity, its ability to use discovery and innovation to create economic wealth, and its potential to realize benefits in health, culture and the quality of life. The increases in output that reflect the growing level of investment will not immediately be translated into world-class research because, as we noted, it will take time to train a new generation of researchers. It will also take time to draw the quality of the new research to the attention of the rest of the world.

That said, we can already begin to see strong signals of improving research impact among the five BRICK countries (as seen in Figure). In order to get a handle on research ‘excellence,’ we have used the frequency with which publications are cited by later works as an index of their impact on the rest of the research community. Citation rates vary by field and citation counts grow by year, so the actual citation count is adjusted (or normalized) for both discipline and year of publication as a ratio on the appropriate world average in the same Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge data, to give a Relative Citation
Impact index (where world average = 1.00)."

Prises de position étasuniennes en faveur du Libre Accès | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Le 22 février, le Bureau de la politique scientifique et technologique de la Maison-Blanche a publié un mémorandum qui porte sur l’augmentation de l’accès aux résultats des recherches scientifiques — les publications validées par les pairs et les données — financées par des fonds fédéraux. Pour ce faire, les agences fédérales doivent avoir des politiques claires et coordonnées qu’elles doivent soumettre dans les six mois suivants la publication de ce mémorandum. Ce dernier donne des indications précises sur le contenu des politiques (accessibilité, réutilisation, archivage, interopérabilité, conservation, financement...). La durée de l’embargo préconisée est de 12 mois, sauf à expliquer les raisons pour lesquelles celle-ci n’est pas tenable dans telle ou telle discipline scientifique...
