"No, Fair! Evolving Perspectives on Excessive Use in Research"

Posted in Copyright, Libraries, Licenses, Publishing, Research Libraries on November 30th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Angela Rathmel has published "No, Fair! Evolving Perspectives on Excessive Use in Research" in ACRLog.

Here's an excerpt:

Publishers take an even heavier hand when responding to excessive use breaches. Blocking the user's IP access, or sometimes an entire campus IP range, presumes malicious intent (which it almost never is). This response also exaggerates the stakes involved and misunderstands what is necessary to perform digital research. Strict reinterpretation of print use restrictions in the online environment denies advances in research technology, from basic citation management software to APIs used for text and data mining. It also ignores the very structure of the linked-data world we live in.

"Academic Publishing, Internet Technology, and Disruptive Innovation"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on November 30th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Haven Allahar has published "Academic Publishing, Internet Technology, and Disruptive Innovation" in the Technology Innovation Management Review.

Here's an excerpt:

After 350 years of operation, the academic journal publishing industry is imbalanced and in flux as a result of the impacts of Internet technology, which has led, over the past 20 years, to the rise of open access publishing. The introduction of open access journals, in the opinion of many researchers, is considered to be a case of disruptive innovation that is revolutionizing the industry. This article analyzes the traditional journal publishing system, the recent open access models of journal publishing as an evolving phenomenon, the nature and extent of open access as a disruptive innovation, and the implications for key stakeholders. The major finding is that open access publishing has gained traction because technology has contributed to lower publication costs, easier access to research articles, and speedier publishing processes. However, the threat posed by open access has not significantly impacted traditional publishers because of strategies employed by the major publishers and slow adoption of open access by some researchers.
