Publications | Free Full-Text | Open Access and the Changing Landscape of Research Impact Indicators: New Roles for Repositories

"The debate about the need to revise metrics that evaluate research excellence has been ongoing for years, and a number of studies have identified important issues that have yet to be addressed. Internet and other technological developments have enabled the collection of richer data and new approaches to research assessment exercises. Open access strongly advocates for maximizing research impact by enhancing seamless accessibility. In addition, new tools and strategies have been used by open access journals and repositories to showcase how science can benefit from free online dissemination. Latest players in the debate include initiatives based on alt-metrics, which enrich the landscape with promising indicators. To start with, the article gives a brief overview of the debate and the role of open access in advancing a new frame to assess science. Next, the work focuses on the strategy that the Spanish National Research Council’s repository DIGITAL.CSIC is implementing to collect a rich set of statistics and other metrics that are useful for repository administrators, researchers and the institution alike. A preliminary analysis of data hints at correlations between free dissemination of research through DIGITAL.CSIC and enhanced impact, reusability and sharing of CSIC science on the web."

Republicans and Democrats Finally Find Common Ground On Coding | Mashable.com | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

In an increasingly divisive U.S. political climate, there's at least one cause that has found support on both sides of the aisle — computer science education.

 

President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor both stressed the importance of learning to to code, or write computer programs, in videos uploaded Sunday to YouTube by Code.org, a non-profit advocacy group. The joint call to action comes at the start of Computer Science Education Week, which began Monday.

 

"If we want America to stay on the cutting edge, we need young Americans like you to master the tools and technology that will change how we do just about everything," Obama says in a short video. "

 

 

Don't just buy a new video game, make one. Don't just download the latest app, help design it. Don't just play on your phone, program it."

Scholarly Communication - About the Libraries - University Library - UC Davis

"Scholarly communication" describes both the dissemination of and access to scholarship and research in a variety of formats and states of completion, such as published books or journal articles, research results and data sets, and drafts of papers. In recent years the concept of scholarly communication has also begun to connote faculty collaborating with publishers, librarians, and others, in solving the grievous problem of the inability of libraries to keep up with the ever-increasing volume and cost of scholarly resources.
