"Open Access and Promotion and Tenure Evaluation Plans at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire"

Posted in Open Access, Open Science on July 2nd, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Stephanie H. Wical and Gregory J. Kocken have published "Open Access and Promotion and Tenure Evaluation Plans at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire" in Serials Review.

Here's an excerpt:

Department and program evaluation plans at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire were examined to see if these documents provide evidence that could be used to justify supporting the publication of peer-reviewed open access articles toward tenure and promotion. . . .

The existing body of scholarship suggests that tenure-line faculty fear publishing in open access journals because it could adversely impact their chances of promotion and tenure. The authors of this current study sought to determine if department and program evaluation plans could influence negative perceptions faculty have of open access journals.

Archives Unleashed Project Awarded $610,625 Grant by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Grants, Research Libraries on July 2nd, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

The Archives Unleashed Project has been awarded a $610,625 Grant by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

The University of Waterloo and York University have been awarded a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to make petabytes of historical internet content accessible to scholars and others interested in researching the recent past. . . .

The three-year Archives Unleashed project has three major thrusts: First, the project will build a software toolkit that applies modern big data analytics infrastructure to scholarly analysis of web archives. Second, the toolkit will be deployed in a cloud-based environment that will provide a one-stop portal for scholars to ingest their collections and execute a number of analyses with the click of a mouse. Finally, datathons—or hackathons—will build a cohesive and sustainable user community by bringing the core project team members together with librarians, archivists, and other interested researchers.
