Openness and visibility / A current awareness bulletin for ACP agriculture

Openness and visibility / A current awareness bulletin for ACP agriculture | open access source.libr | Scoop.it

"The increasing focus on opening access to information is affecting agricultural research and development, explains Stephen Rudgard. There has been an increasing focus, globally, on various aspects of the ‘openness’ of information and knowledge since the early 2000s – open data, open access, open knowledge, open source, and so on. This openness involves, and is affecting, the world of agricultural information and knowledge as much as any other field of research and development. The impacts are being felt at individual, institutional and national and international levels, from policy development to the day-to-day behaviour of individuals."

Report Examines Policies for Open Access to Images of Museum Work

Report Examines Policies for Open Access to Images of Museum Work | open access source.libr | Scoop.it

"Art museums have long controlled the images of objects in their collections by charging fees for their use. In recent years, however, several art museums in the United States and United Kingdom have adopted policies permitting more open access to these images.

A new report, prepared for The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and published by CLIR, describes the current approaches of 11 art museums to the use of images from their collections, when the underlying works are in the public domain. The report, Images of Works of Art in Museum Collections: The Experience of Open Access, was written by Kristin Kelly. Ms. Kelly, a freelance museum professional and writer, spent nine years as the manager of administration at the J. Paul Getty Museum, and nine years overseeing public programming and communications at the Getty Conservation Institute"

CollectiveAccess - The Open Source Collections Management and Cataloguing System for Museums and Archives

CollectiveAccess - The Open Source Collections Management and Cataloguing System for Museums and Archives | open access source.libr | Scoop.it

CollectiveAccess is a highly configurable cataloguing tool and web-based application for museums, archives and digital collections. Available free of charge under the GPL open-source license, it requires little to no custom programming to support a variety of metadata standards, external data sources and repositories, as well as most popular media formats. In addition to multilingual cataloguing facilities, it allows publication of this data in the languages of your choice.

 

Current users include representatives from a wide range of fields: fine art, anthropology, film, oral history, local history, architecture, material culture, biodiversity conservation, libraries, corporate archives, digital asset management, and many more. This community of partners has contributed funding, planning and software development resources, resulting in a series of specialist features.

 

CollectiveAccess can handle a long list of digital media formats, including many popular image, video, audio and document formats. All accepted formats can be automatically re-sized, watermarked and converted to web-viewable formats using criteria you define. Multi-page documents can be conveniently viewed on the web, regardless of original format, using a standards-based page-viewing interface.

The Global Research Council: Open Access increases the quality of research communication | Open Science

The Global Research Council: Open Access increases the quality of research communication | Open Science | open access source.libr | Scoop.it

"More than two weeks ago the 2nd Annual Global Meeting of the Global Research Council in Berlin had ended. The conference gathered the heads of 70 research-funding organizations from around the world. Among the many topics discussed was also the matter of Open Access.

In the last few years Open Access has spread quickly and become a very important factor in the development of science. This state of affairs is confirmed not only by the growing number of OA publishers and publications, but also by the increase in the funding of OA by universities and research institutions, as well as by governmental measures in the support of Open Access in many countries."

Open practices make for strange bed fellows - Research Blogs

"Open approaches are now familiar in all aspects of our daily lives. With governments spearheading initiatives to make the information they hold available to all and developments such as open source software now changing the way we work, communicate and play.

Open policies are already widely in use in the academic world and all the indicators show that this is an unstoppable trend. For future Research Excellence Framework exercises, the Higher Education Funding Council for England is proposing to adopt an ‘open by default’ policy that will require all research papers to be open access and to be deposited in institutional repositories. And it is expected that the EU’s next big funding round – Horizon 2020 – will embrace open culture and practices, including by requiring high levels of openness from all those who apply for funds, as well as funding a data sharing pilot."
