Recommendations of the Ad Hoc Task Force on Open Access to MIT’s Research

Posted in ARL Libraries, Open Access, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on October 18th, 2019

MIT has released "Recommendations of the Ad Hoc Task Force on Open Access to MIT's Research."

Here's an excerpt:

The recommendations include ratifying an Institute-wide set of principles for open science and open scholarship, which affirm MIT's larger commitment to the idea that scholarship and its dissemination should remain in the hands of researchers and their institutions. The MIT Libraries are working with the task force and the Committee on the Library System to develop a framework for negotiations with publishers based on these principles.

"Institutional Repositories and the Item and Research Data Metrics Landscape"

Posted in Digital Repositories, Institutional Repositories, Open Access, Scholarly Metrics, Self-Archiving on October 2nd, 2019

Paul Needham and Jo Lambert have published "Institutional Repositories and the Item and Research Data Metrics Landscape" in Insights.

Here's an excerpt:

The success of COUNTER in supporting adoption of a standard to measure e-resource usage over the past 15 years is apparent within the scholarly communications community. The prevalence of global OA policies and mandates, and the role of institutional repositories within this context, prompts demand for more granular metrics. It also raises the profile of data sharing of item-level usage and research data metrics. The need for reliable and authoritative measures is paramount. This burgeoning interest is complemented by a number of initiatives to explore the measurement and tracking of usage of a broad range of objects outside traditional publisher platforms. Drawing on examples such as OpenAIRE, IRUS-UK, Crossref's Distributed Usage Logging and Event Data service and COAR Next Generation Repositories, this article provides a brief introduction and overview of developments in this area.

"Peerj Preprints to Stop Accepting New Preprints Sep 30th 2019"

Posted in E-Prints, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on September 4th, 2019

PeerJ has released "Peerj Preprints to Stop Accepting New Preprints Sep 30th 2019."

Here's an excerpt:

We started the PeerJ organization primarily to provide a superior peer-reviewed experience shaped by its Academic Editors. A secondary goal was to bring preprints back to biology. As the community's appetite for preprints has now been cemented, we too want to focus our efforts more fully on our portfolio of peer-reviewed journals and primary mission. While PeerJ Preprints has been successful and pioneering, the academic community is now well-served with other preprint venue options (and new ones are continuously being created to fill necessary areas, many of which are not tied so closely to a specific publication).

"Ten Years of Research on ResearchGate, a Scoping Review Using Google Scholar 2008-2017"

Posted in Digital Repositories, E-Prints, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on August 27th, 2019

Juan Jose Prieto-Gutierrez has self-archived "Ten Years of Research on ResearchGate, a Scoping Review Using Google Scholar 2008-2017."

Here's an excerpt:

Objective. To analyse quantitatively the articles published during 2008_2017 about the academic social networking site ResearchGate. Methods. A scoping bibliometric review of documents retrieved using Google Scholar was conducted, limited to publications that contained the word "ResearchGate" in their title and were published from 2008 to 2017. Results. The search yielded 159 documents, once a preliminary list of 386 documents retrieved from Google Scholar was filtered, which eliminated about 60% of the results that were bibliographic citations and not documents. Papers in journals were the most numerous type of documents (n 73; 46%), followed by conference papers (n 31; 19.5 %). Contributing eight publications, two Spanish scholars (Delgado Lopez-Cozar and Orduna Malea, who were coauthors in each case) were the most prolific authors writing on this topic during the ten-year period. The keywords most used in the documents were "ResearchGate" and "Altmetrics". The publications were cited frequently since 2014 (more than 90% of the total cites fell in that period), and those with more than one author were the most cited ones. The authors of the documents were mainly librarians and information science professionals, who wrote primarily as co-authors with colleagues from their own institutions, mostly published in English. Conclusions. Interest in ResearchGate has grown since 2015, as evident from the number of articles published and the citations they received.
