Promoting Open Access and Review (Publishing Reflection) | Readings 804

"To summarize Nawrotzki and Dougherty, the arrival of the internet has expanded historical readership, allowed more people to contribute to scholarship, and altered the process of doing history – yet the process of evaluating and publishing history has not changed significantly. There are three general areas in which progress can be made though it has been made slowly so far: 1. Open Access – making more scholarship available to a wider audience conveniently and at a lower cost. 2. Open Review – taking advantage of the web’s collaborative capabilities to improve the peer review. And 3. Improved publishing formats – creating scholarly content which exploits the capabilities of digital technology, rather than reproducing traditional formats electronically."

Developing joined up RDM infrastructure for institutions | Digital Curation Centre

Developing joined up RDM infrastructure for institutions | Digital Curation Centre | Open Access News from the RSP team | Scoop.it

"This is a report on Session 4A at the JISC MRD Programme workshop on achievements, challenges and recommendations. This session titled "Repositories, portals and institutional systems” was summed up by programme manager Simon Hodson as having the general theme of how to join up institutional systems. It served up five excellent examples of approaches to joining up within different institutional contexts – these examples are summarised here. Between them they have something to offer other institutions currently examining their infrastructure with a view to embedding research data management services. For further details please consult the project blogs and the presentation slides."
