Le cycle économique infernal de la financiarisation de l’enseignement supérieur. "MOOC fiction"

Le cycle économique infernal de la financiarisation de l’enseignement supérieur. "MOOC fiction" | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Un récit en six phases de la financiarisation de l'enseignement supérieur et pourquoi ça ne peut que se terminer mal. Avec une phase actuelle qui est celle de la bulle des MOOC (Massive Online Open Courses), avant la prochaine phase qui est encore prospective mais probable. Le récit est délibérément international, le lecteur appportera les nuances qui conviennent selon les particularités institutionnelles de son pays ou de son établissement.

Open access and online teaching materials for digital humanities

Open access and online teaching materials for digital humanities | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

In Chapter 8, Simon Mahony, Ulrich Tiedau and Irish Sirmons discuss open access educational resources: a new initiative to make teaching materials available in digital form. They take, as their example, two projects at UCL: one in a traditional humanities subject – Dutch – and one in digital humanities itself. They show that the digital medium not only makes possible sharing and crowdsourcing of material for humanities research and in cultural heritage domains, but that learning objects can now be shared and repurposed by teachers, as well as enriching the experience of learners. Material from our new MA/MSc in digital humanities at UCL will form part of this new initiative.

The Citation Project

The Citation Project | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

The Citation Project is a multi-institution research project responding to educators’ concerns about plagiarism and the teaching of writing. Although much has been written on this topic and many have expressed concerns, little empirical data is available to describe what students are actually doing with their sources. At present, therefore, educators must make policy decisions and pedagogy based on anecdote, personal observation, media reports, and the claims of corporations that sell “solutions.”...

Testing the Finch Hypothesis on Green OA Mandate Ineffectiveness


Via Bernard Rentier
more...
Bernard Rentier's curator insight, May 6, 2013 1:19 PM

The Finch Committee postulated that Green OA Mandates are ineffective in generating deposits in institutional repositories.

 

Gargouri et al. show that deposit number and rate is significantly correlated with mandate strength: the stronger the mandate, the more the deposits.

 

The strongest mandates generate deposit rates of 70%+ within 2 years of adoption, compared to the un-mandated deposit rate of 20%.

 

Green Open Access Mandates do have a major effect, and the stronger the mandate, the stronger the effect (the Liege ID/OA mandate, linked to research performance evaluation, being the strongest mandate model).

Les publications académiques se tournent vers l'Open Access

Les publications académiques se tournent vers l'Open Access | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Outre-Atlantique comme en Europe, les gouvernements semblent prendre peu à peu conscience de l'intérêt de diffuser les publications académiques en Open Access. Une volonté d'exporter les fruits de la recherche scientifique en format numérique peu coûteux, pour ouvrir l'accès à tous publics, et ce, via des revues gratuites pour le lecteur. Telle semble être l'optique en ligne de mire, notamment des dernières politiques en la matière de l'Union européenne, des Etats-Unis et du Royaume-uni.

Gaming Google Scholar Citations, Made Simple and Easy

When metrics are adopted as evaluative tools, there is always a temptation to game them. Without rules and sanctions to prevent widespread manipulation, metrics lose their relevance, become meaningless, and are quickly disregarded by those who once believed that they stood for something important.

Why count Facebook Likes and Tweets when you can purchase thousands of them for just a few dollars? For these metrics to remain robust indicators of something meaningful, it is important to keep the cheats out of the system.

PLOS, Wellcome Trust, Google launch open access science award program - Creative Commons

PLOS, Wellcome Trust, Google launch open access science award program - Creative Commons | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Today the Public Library of Science, the Wellcome Trust, and Google announce the Accelerating Science Award Program(ASAP). The award program seeks nominations of individuals who have used, applied, or remixed scientific research — published through open access — in order to realize innovations in science, medicine, and technology. The goal of ASAP is to build awareness of and encourage the use of scientific research published through open access.

Three winners will each receive $30,000. The nomination period opens today and runs through June 15, 2013. Potential nominees may include individuals, teams, or groups of collaborators -– such as scientists, researchers, educators, social services, technology leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, patient advocates, public health workers, and students -– who have used scientific research in transformative ways. The winners will be announced in Washington, DC, in October 2013 at an Open Access Week event hosted by SPARC and the World Bank.

Creative Commons is a supporter of ASAP, along with several other library organizations, publishers, and research organizations.

For more information, including the full details of the ASAP program, nomination process, and the award specifics, go to http://asap.plos.org/. For program rules visit http://asap.plos.org/nominate/rules/.

Privatisation de la publication scientifique : main basse du privé sur la Recherche et la Science

Le monde de la Science est un monde un peu à part. Tout le monde comprend l’enjeu de la recherche, mais peu de monde réalise encore la portée du changement qui s’est effectué au cours de ces dernières années dans l’édition scientifique, et l’enjeu scientifique et politique des débats qui s’ouvrent autour de ces questions.

A month of ORBilu, a new publications server

Three weeks ago, my university launched a new publications server called ORBilu, which replaced the old one, publications.uni.lu. The reasons for this change are quite evident: the old server contained almost 10 000 references, but was very archaic. With ORBilu you have far more options. The program gained one’s spur at the University of Liège, where it is used since several years...

How are discovery systems similar to Google? How are they different? | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Like many academic libraries, we recently launched our discovery service Summon. I would guess most librarians probably see Summon and its competitors as "Google, but for academic research or they see as "Google Scholar like". For sure, users see it that way and so did I. Similar to Google, Summon generally isn't restricted to searching just the metadata or the bibliographic record and searches through full-text of most journal articles and many books - if these are available or provided...
