New Report: “Moving Towards an Open Access Future: The Role of Academic Libraries” | LJ INFOdocket

New Report: “Moving Towards an Open Access Future: The Role of Academic Libraries” | LJ INFOdocket | dataintelligence | Scoop.it

In April, leading independent academic and professional publisher SAGE convened a roundtable in association with the British Library into the role of the academic library in an open access (OA) future. Chaired by publishing consultant Simon Inger and attended by an international panel of 14 senior librarians and other industry experts, the conclusions of this discussion have today been published in a report, “Moving towards an open access future: the role of academic libraries”.

 

Key discussions include:

Addressing the culture of mistrust and misunderstanding regarding OA amongst researchers The varying uptake of OA and the subsequent impacts The key roles that librarians will play in: Sharing discovery and support services amongst libraries and institutions Managing services such as institutional repositories Providing licensing and related advice to researchers Supporting preservation and managing metadata and recognising the importance of recommender services Explaining open access to researchers.

What can research data repositories learn from open access? Part 2 | JISC DataPool Project

What can research data repositories learn from open access? Part 2 | JISC DataPool Project | dataintelligence | Scoop.it

Open access is finally attracting high-level attention from national governments, but full open access has been a long time arriving despite extensive funding, development and the commitment of many people. As much of that effort switches towards the implementation of repositories to store, share and publish the research data that informs publications, we are considering what lessons might be learned from open access repositories, so that the path to effective data repositories might be shorter and less fraught.

A conceptual framework for managing very diverse data for complex, interdisciplinary science

A conceptual framework for managing very diverse data for complex, interdisciplinary science | dataintelligence | Scoop.it

Much attention has been given to the challenges of handling massive data volumes in modern data-intensive science. This paper examines an equally daunting challenge – the diversity of interdisciplinary data, notably research data, and the need to interrelate these data to understand complex systemic problems such as environmental change and its impact.

Joint reponse to EC Survey on Scientific Information in the Digital Age

Joint reponse to EC Survey on Scientific Information in the Digital Age | dataintelligence | Scoop.it

Knowledge Exchange welcomes the invitation of the European Commission to provide a response to the survey on scientific information in the digital age.

 

The partners have each responded independently to the survey, but there are a number of shared positions we would like to highlight in this document.


From the perspective of the four organisations that make up Knowledge Exchange, all outputs from publicly funded research, including publications, should be openly available on the internet as long as matters of privacy and confidentiality do not interfere. This is currently not the case. Providing open access to publications will improve the access to and dissemination of research findings for a broad audience including citizens, students, SMEs and industry. We are of the opinion that all outputs of EU funded projects should be made available in open access.


It is very important to increase the awareness of the value of making research data available for reuse. An important step in this process is to ensure that researchers receive sufficient credit for their research data.
At the outset of a research project a view should be formulated as to how data will be managed. We would recommend a data management plan to be included in all research proposals. Researchers need a well developed data infrastructure to support them in storing, collaborating on and sharing datasets.

"Syllabus for Data, Data Practices, and Data Curation" by Christine L. Borgman

"Syllabus for Data, Data Practices, and Data Curation" by Christine L. Borgman | dataintelligence | Scoop.it
two courses (winter and spring) will survey the rich landscape of data practices and
services, including data as evidence and their role in research; data‐intensive research methods;
social studies of data practices; national and international data policy (e.g., intellectual
property, release policies, open access, economics); comparisons between disciplines;
management of data by research teams, data centers, libraries, and archives; technical
standards for data and metadata; and data curation. Part I (winter) lays the foundation for data
practices and services across the disciplines. Part II (spring) builds upon this background to
provide practical experience in data curation.

Digital Preservation, Digital Curation, Digital Whatever: What’s the Right Term? | Agogified | dataintelligence | Scoop.it

There is a polite but persistent disagreement among librarians, archivists and other normally peaceful souls who care about keeping digital information accessible into the future. The conflict is low key, as one might expect: no one is occupying reading rooms, much less being led away in plastic handcuffs. But there are few signs that all parties are ready to reconcile.

Making sense: talking data management with researchers - Enlighten

Making sense: talking data management with researchers - Enlighten | dataintelligence | Scoop.it

While the majority of research data management projects focus on developing technical solutions, we are focusing on the need for ‘soft’ infrastructure, such as one-to-one tailored support, training, and easy-to-find, concise guidance that breaks down some of the barriers information professionals have unintentionally built with their use of specialist terminology. We are employing a bottom-up approach as we feel that to support the step-by-step development of sound research data management practices, you must first understand researchers’ needs and perspectives.
