Encouraging Digital Scholarly Publishing in the Humanities: White Paper

Posted in Digital Humanities, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Books on November 5th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

The University of North Georgia has released Encouraging Digital Scholarly Publishing in the Humanities: White Paper.

Here's an excerpt:

This project, led by the University Press of North Georgia, and funded by a Digital Start-Up grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities focused on exploring the peer review process and increasing its usefulness to presses and scholars publishing digitally. By exploring this issues we have made recommendations for best practices in digital publishing, specifically for small academic presses. Through surveys and a workshop of key stakeholder groups (press directors, college administrators, humanities faculty, and library/technology center directors), we found a strong investment in the "gold standard" of double- or single-blind peer review. Working within the current academic publishing structure (including publishing in print) was a priority, even to presses and faculty members who were actively exploring digital publishing and open access models. On closer inspection, we realized that the various stakeholders valued the current peer review process for different reasons. And we found that the value of peer review goes beyond vetting the quality of scholarship and manuscript content. Based on these findings, we considered ways to obtain these benefits within the current academic structure through innovative peer review processes. At the same time, we looked for ways of offsetting potential risks associated with these alternative methods. We considered cost effective ways to accommodate the needs of the disparate constituencies involved in academic publishing while allowing room for digital publishing. While our findings focus primarily on small academic presses, they also have significant implications for the open access community.

"Report on Data Management and Data-Management Plans for the History of Science Society Committee on Research and the Profession (September 6, 2013)"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on November 4th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Daniel Goldstein et al. have published "Report on Data Management and Data-Management Plans for the History of Science Society Committee on Research and the Profession (September 6, 2013)" in the History of Science Society Newsletter.

Here's an excerpt:

The growing attention paid to data management by funding agencies reflects two additional trends. First is the idea that agencies that fund research ought to have some say in how that research is disseminated. Second is a growing trend in academia toward the increased sharing and broader dissemination of research data. In addition to these contexts, our report is also informed by the recognition that some historians of science are employing computational methods in their research for which the accumulation of and shared access to data is increasingly central. This report therefore considers what data mean in the context of history of science, when they should and should not be shared, and what mechanisms exist or could be developed for their access and preservation. In the process, the report raises pertinent questions that should be considered and, perhaps, addressed by applicants for NSF grants, but it does not provide a template for grant application plans. This report is intended to serve as a starting point for discussion, to identify issues and suggest possibilities.
