Welcome to the initial ideas hub for the Open LIbrary of Humanities (OLH): a project exploring a PLOS-style model for the humanities and social sciences. This site aims to give the background to and rationale for such a project along with an initial call for participants so that we can put a team together in Spring 2013. As a preliminary statement: we are not affiliated in any way with PLOS. This website will be used for the preliminary stages of developing the organisational structure of OLH, as we launch as a not-for-profit company, and in the run-up to launching the actual journal and database
Welcome to "The African Open Access Repository Initiative".
This repository is a digital service that collects, preserves, and distributes research related digital material, for African higher education institutions that do not have the technological capacity to do so at present, for the very long term.
The repository is managed according to generally accepted repository practice and was built using these recommended guidelines.
Please contact the scholar office (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Stellenbosch University Library, to apply for a repository hosting service on this platform.
La recherche est financée par l’argent public, mais sa visibilité reste contrôlée par des revues payantes. Des appels au changement se font entendre. L’EPFL vient ainsi de signer un texte promulguant le libre accès.
In a university culture increasingly influenced by metrics, academic libraries can use altmetrics to highlight scholarship’s hidden value. This session will cover the apps and services that can help faculty, administration, and librarians learn the full, true impact of research.
Institutional Repositories: Exploration of Costs and Value :
« Little is known about the costs academic libraries incur to implement and manage institutional repositories and the value these institutional repositories offer to their communities. To address this, the authors report the findings of their 29 question survey of academic libraries with institutional repositories. We received 49 usable responses. Thirty-four of these responses completed the entire survey. While meant to be exploratory, results are varied and depend on the context of the institution. This context includes, among other things, the size of the repositories and of the institutions, the software used to operate the repositories, such as open source or proprietary, and whether librarians mediate content archiving, or content producers directly deposit their own material. The highlights of our findings, based on median values, suggest that institutions that mediate submissions incur less expense than institutions that allow self-archiving, institutions that offer additional services incur greater annual operating costs than those who do not, and institutions that use open source applications have lower implementation costs but comparable annual operating costs with institutions that use proprietary solutions. Furthermore, changes in budgeting, from special initiative to absorption into the regular budget, suggest a trend in sustainable support for institutional repositories. Our findings are exploratory but suggest that future inquiry into costs and the value of institutional repositories should be directed at specific types of institutions, such as by Carnegie Classification category. »
Excellent document qui montre l'importance de la question de la licence des articles, qu'ils soient dans un dépôt institutionnel ou dans dans une revue en libre accès - et qui appelle les défenseurs de la voie verte à exiger les licences CC-BY afin de permettre la compilation automatique des données.
Hadithi <hadithi.org>, an online open access research library for African scholars. We harvest, curate and aggregate open access research from institutional repositories worldwide. Through our library, scholars can search and download research material in one place at no cost.
Research4Life partners announced today that the content available through its collaborative public-private partnership has dramatically increased since 2011 to reach 17,000 peer reviewed scientific journals, books and databases. Research4Life provides over 6,000 institutions in more than 100 developing countries with free or low cost access to peer-reviewed online content from the world’s leading scientific, technical and medical publishers.
A report on the Data Publication strand at IDCC13. This featured presentations from Maarten Hoogerwerf (DANS), Sarah Callaghan (BADC and the PREPARDE project), and Peter Doorn (DANS).
Florence Piron's insight:
Publishing data is hardly a new concept, for example the Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data is in its 42nd volume. But reference datasets are of course an exception to the rule; maps of the known disciplinary terrain rather than the stuff normally encountered when exploring it. Recently though the idea of a ‘data journal’ has gained a lot of traction as a vehicle for publishing research data. One of the issues this session was concerned with was the potential for this and other publication models to make data sharing work more effectively for all those interested in its creation and reuse.
