Open access: discovery, usage and impact

To ensure the full benefits of open access (OA) research are realised, it must be made easy to find and use. But simply placing research outputs in an institutional repository is not enough.

You can take steps to raise the visibility of your institution’s repository and help ensure users can find and use relevant content.

Educause 2016: Libraries and future of higher education

Educause 2016: Libraries and future of higher education | Somos OPEN | Scoop.it
Text of the talk I gave at Educause 2016 Like all good talks, I’m going to start out by telling you what I’m not going to talk about.

Introducing the new sector agreement for open research data

Introducing the new sector agreement for open research data | Somos OPEN | Scoop.it
Within the research sector it is now widely recognised that open data is a good thing and beneficial to research and its subsequent impacts and uses. It improves the integrity of research by making it more transparent, open to scrutiny and therefore trustworthy, while supporting reuse, new advances, and contributing to economic growth.

Google Puts Online 10,000 Works of Street Art from Across the Globe

Google Puts Online 10,000 Works of Street Art from Across the Globe | Somos OPEN | Scoop.it
Circling Birdies by Cheko, Granada Spain

Since last we wrote, Google Street Art has doubled its online archive by adding some 5,000 images, bringing the tally to 10,000, with coordinates pinpointing exact locations on all five continents (though as of this writing, things are a bit thin on the ground in Africa). Given the temporal realities of outdoor, guerrilla art, pilgrims may arrive to find a blank canvas where graffiti once flourished. (RIP New York City’s 5 Pointz, the “Institute of Higher Burning.”)

Imagine the scene: you uncover a painting stored away in the closet of an elderly relative's home, coated in a blanket of dust so thick you can hardly make out anything but more dust underneath. You slide it out, begin to carefully brush it off, and find two piercing eyes peering out at you.
