Open_Access_Publishing_a_guide_to_recent_policies_web.pdf

Irina Radchenko's insight:

"In 2012, the government and many research funding bodies released new policies mandating the open access publication of
UK funded research. These new policies aim to widen access to research findings on the basis that the traditional model of
subscription publication limits access to research findings to a small audience of academics and to those who are able to pay
subscriptions to journals. The government maintains that publicly funded research should result in publicly available resources."

Open science and the disciplinary culture clash - Why is it so hard to reach a consensus?

Open science and the disciplinary culture clash - Why is it so hard to reach a consensus? | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

When it comes down to the nitty gritty detail of what open science means for an individual researcher, the disciplinary context is key. As clear and straightforward as making research publicly available is, many questions still remain for specific disciplines. Peter Kraker reports back from a session on openness in the humanities where definitions of data, research work and research materials were all contested.

Fàtima Galan's curator insight, October 8, 8:05 AM

Open Data " benefits are at significant risk both from quality problems such as “open-washing” (non-open data being passed off as open) and from fragmentation of the open data ecosystem due to incompatibility between the growing number of “open” licenses.

The Open Definition eliminates these risks and ensures we realize the full benefits of open by guaranteeing quality and preventing incompatibility.See this recent post for more about why the Open Definition is so important.

The cost of subscription publishing

The cost of subscription publishing | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
The high cost of subscription journals has been discussed endlessly among librarians and those advocating for open access. While it is common knowledge that the prices paid by libraries are higher than most can really afford, there is still surprisingly little data in the public domain about what the exact costs are. Partly this is just down to the fact that libraries haven’t traditionally published detailed breakdowns of their acquisitions expenditure, so there is no cultural norm of doing so.

Turn Data Into Knowledge

Turn Data Into Knowledge | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
Every day we face challenges – from the personal, such as the quickest way to get to work, or what we should eat, to global ones like climate change and how to sustainably feed and educate seven billion people on this planet, writes Rufus Pollock, Founder, Open Knowledge

At Open Knowledge we believe that opening up data – and turning that data into insight – can be crucial to addressing these challenges, and building a society in which is everyone – not just the few – are empowered with the knowledge they need to understand and effect change.
more...
Fàtima Galan's curator insight, October 8, 8:11 AM

"Data is everywhere and we commonly talk of ‘digital economies’ now, of a ‘networked society’. But making sense of data – turning it into knowledge if you like – and then using it wisely, is still one of the greatest challenges we face as a global and increasingly interlinked society.

...

Reuse and redistribution: the data must be provided under terms that permit reuse and redistribution including the intermixing with other datasets. The data must be machine-readable.

...

Personal data should never be ‘open’ and freely accessible to everyone. Rather, we strongly believe that each of us should control our personal data – both to have access to it and to know (and decide) how it is used.

...

With digital technology – from mobiles to the Internet – increasingly everywhere, we are seeing a data revolution. We are living this revolution both in the amount of data available and in our ability to use, and share, that data. And it is changing everything we do – from how we travel home from work to how scientists do research, to how governments set policy.
