"The Next Stage of SocArXiv’s Development: Bringing Greater Transparency and Efficiency to the Peer Review Process"

Posted in Digital Repositories, Disciplinary Archives, E-Prints, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on October 17th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Philip Cohen has published "The Next Stage of SocArXiv's Development: Bringing Greater Transparency and Efficiency to the Peer Review Proces" in LSE Impact of Social Sciences.

Here's an excerpt:

Looking ahead to the next stage of its development, Philip Cohen considers how SocArXiv might challenge the peer review system to be more efficient and transparent, firstly by confronting the bias that leads many who benefit from the status quo to characterise mooted alternatives as extreme. The value and implications of openness at the various decision points in the system must be debated, as should potentially more disruptive innovations such as non-exclusive review and publication or crowdsourcing reviews.

"Evolving Roles of Preservation Professionals: Trends in Position Announcements from 2004 to 2015"

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Research Libraries on October 16th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Mary M. Miller and Martha Horan have published "Evolving Roles of Preservation Professionals: Trends in Position Announcements from 2004 to 2015" in Library Resources & Technical Services.

Here's an excerpt:

As research libraries continue to expand the scope of content they acquire, manage, and make accessible, the preservation charge within organizations is broadening. Libraries and other cultural heritage institutions must balance the preservation of books, manuscripts, archives, and audiovisual materials with born-digital and digitized content. As preservation challenges and strategies evolve, professional positions in preservation must also evolve to meet the needs of academic and other cultural institutions. The ability to quantify how preservation positions are changing, and to identify the required skill sets and educational backgrounds needed for preservation professionals, is central to navigating this shift. To begin to address this, the authors collected and analyzed announcements for professional preservation positions in libraries and archives from 2004 through 2015. They compared the contents of announcements between earlier and more recent years to identify potential trends in preservation employment.
