Posted in E-Books, Publishing, Research Libraries, Scholarly Books on October 31st, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

College & Research Libraries has released an e-print of "Cost Differentials between E-Books and Print in Academic Libraries."

Here's an excerpt:

A survey conducted at Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) has confirmed for academic libraries the work of Gray and Copeland on e-books being more expensive than print for public libraries. For AUM, the mean cost for e-books are significantly higher than for the print counterpart of those titles. The cost differentials between the two formats show e-books as being consistently higher than print in initial price. This consistency holds true across all LC classifications, regardless of whether or not the title is published by a university press or a commercial press.

"The Open Access Movement Grows Up: Taking Stock of a Revolution"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on October 30th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Heather Joseph has published "The Open Access Movement Grows Up: Taking Stock of a Revolution" in a special issue on open access of PLOS Biology.

Here's an excerpt:

Overall, the story of the OA movement over the past ten years has been one of demonstrable progress. To be sure, the road has not been a smooth one. There have been stumbles, wrong turns, false starts, and bruising battles, particularly in the policy arena. But if we weigh the indicators of progress made by the OA movement against the intensity and complexity of the obstacles it has faced in the first decade, there's reason for great optimism as we head into the next ten years.

"The Librarian as Research Informationist: A Case Study"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on October 30th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Lisa Federer has published "The Librarian as Research Informationist: A Case Study" in the Journal of the Medical Library Association.

Here's an excerpt:

Whereas traditional library services have generally focused on the "last mile" or finished product of the research process—the peer-reviewed literature—librarians have expertise that can help researchers create better research output in the form of more useful data. In the last several years, new policies from major funding bodies (such as the National Science Foundation's data management plan requirement and the NIH's public access policy) indicate that funders expect researchers to demonstrate the highest possible return on investment for their grant dollars. The need for better research data management has given rise to a new role for librarians: the "research informationist." Research informationists work with research teams at each step of the research process, from project inception and grant seeking to final publication, providing expert guidance on data management and preservation, bibliometric analysis, expert searching, compliance with grant funder policies regarding data management and open access, and other information-related areas.
