"Advancing Research Communication & Scholarship—An Interview with Robin Champieux and Jill Emery about This New Conference"

Posted in Publishing, Research Libraries, Scholarly Communication on March 12th, 2015

Alice Meadows has published "Advancing Research Communication & Scholarship—An Interview with Robin Champieux and Jill Emery about This New Conference" in The Scholarly Kitchen.

Here's an excerpt:

ARCS, Advancing Research Communication & Scholarship, is a new conference designed to provide a broad and collaborative forum for addressing and affecting scholarly and scientific communication. As organizers, we are working from the idea that supporting and improving knowledge communication in the digital age necessitates conversations and partnerships across communities, disciplines, and expertise. . . . Partnering with an organizing committee of librarians, technologists, humanists, scientists, and publishers we have built a conference program that addresses scholarly communication issues across the research cycle, through a diversity of stakeholder perspectives.

      "Tenets of the Liberal Arts: Complex Thinking in the Digital Age"

      Posted in Scholarly Communication on November 18th, 2014

      Charles J. Henry and Elliott Shore have published "Tenets of the Liberal Arts: Complex Thinking in the Digital Age" in EDUCAUSE Review.

      Here's an excerpt:

      We are awash in millions of books and journals, with a high degree of redundancy across academic institutions. Perhaps justified in the non-digital environment that reaches back to Babylon, this expensive, competitive circumstance is indefensible in a digital ecology. In addition to the vast array of printed matter, we continue to proliferate projects that create digital content but that are often siloed and uncommunicative. Further, we pay exorbitant fees to lease content from providers, buying back the knowledge we essentially gave away to them in the first place. In this respect, the migration from our print-based traditions of discovery, publishing, access, and preservation to digital-based methods is indeed under way. But the process is so uncoordinated and ad hoc that our current hybrid library retains most of the costs, inefficiencies, and impediments of the older paradigm.

        "Comment, Discuss, Review: An Essential Guide to Post-Publication Review Sites"

        Posted in Publishing, Scholarly Communication, Scholarly Journals on November 10th, 2014

        Andy Tattersall has published "Comment, Discuss, Review: An Essential Guide to Post-Publication Review Sites" in LSE Impact of Social Sciences.

        Here's an excerpt:

        The debate on whether which is the best way forward for post-publication review will continue and like other topics such as measurement of research, there appears to be no 'silver bullet'. Instead there is a collection of sites and tools operating in silos, all offering to solve a problem, that being the lack of post publication discussion and assessment. Below are a list of some of the main tools and sites offering some kind of comment, discussion or review system—it is not exhaustive or comprehensive, but it will give you some idea as to what they are and do.

              "Online Collaboration: Scientists and the Social Network"

              Posted in Scholarly Communication, Social Media/Web 2.0 on August 18th, 2014

              Richard Van Noorde has published "Online Collaboration: Scientists and the Social Network" in Nature.

              Here's an excerpt:

              More than 4.5 million researchers have signed up for ResearchGate, and another 10,000 arrive every day, says Madisch. That is a pittance compared with Facebook's 1.3 billion active users, but astonishing for a network that only researchers can join.

                "Estimates of the Continuously Publishing Core in the Scientific Workforce"

                Posted in Publishing, Scholarly Communication on July 15th, 2014

                John P. A. Ioannidis et al. have published "Estimates of the Continuously Publishing Core in the Scientific Workforce" in PLOS ONE.

                Here's an excerpt:

                The proportion of the scientific workforce that maintains a continuous uninterrupted stream of publications each and every year over many years is very limited, but it accounts for the lion's share of researchers with high citation impact. This finding may have implications for the structure, stability and vulnerability of the scientific workforce.
