NC State Offers Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities

Posted in Digital Humanities on February 3rd, 2015

NC State University is offering a Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

The graduate certificate in digital humanities allows degree or non-degree seeking graduate students to design a curriculum of interdisciplinary study at the forefront of digital methods in the humanities. Digital humanities (or "DH") comprises a big tent of diverse disciplinary and technical pursuits, and our certificate program is premised on curricular flexibility to allow students to pursue, with the support of certificate staff and faculty, the innovative opportunities they see for creative, critically-informed, media-inflected research and teaching pursuits in their fields, from the humanities to colleges across the university. Including digitization of cultural heritage materials, studies in media history and technologies, analysis and critique of digital culture, applied programming for analysis and visualization, project management, interface design and user experience, and/or digital pedagogies, the certificate features abundant contexts and skills-training in which to define next-generation teaching and research.

          "Who Should We Trust?"

          Posted in Open Access, Publishing on February 2nd, 2015

          Kevin Smith has published "Who Should We Trust?" in Scholarly Communications @ Duke.

          Here's an excerpt:

          It is not that we exactly trust commercial publishers, nor do we exactly distrust them. We may recognize that the values and goals of the commercial publishing business are different from, and even in conflict with, the best interests of scholarly authors and of scholarship itself. Perfectly nice people, working to advance their own interests as best they can, come in to conflict as the conditions for research and teaching change. And a real ambivalence is created because of how interwoven the parts of the academic enterprise are. More than just inertia is a work; important aspects of the academic enterprise remain interlocked with traditional forms of publication.

            "PeerJ—A PLOS ONE Contender in 2015?"

            Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on February 2nd, 2015

            Phil Davis has published "PeerJ—A PLOS ONE Contender in 2015?" in The Scholarly Kitchen.

            Here's an excerpt:

            In my last post, I reported that PeerJ was growing, publishing more papers and attracting more authors, although it was not clear whether the company was moving toward financial stability. In a crowded market of multidisciplinary open access journals, I argued that the success (or failure) of PeerJ would be determined when it received its first Impact Factor, which will be announced in mid-June with the publication of Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Report. The purpose of this post is to estimate PeerJ's first Impact Factor and discuss its implications.

                "Starting a Research Data Management Program Based in a University Library"

                Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on January 30th, 2015

                Margaret Henderson and Teresa L. Knott have self-archived "Starting a Research Data Management Program Based in a University Library."

                Here's an excerpt:

                As the need for research data management grows, many libraries are considering adding data services to help with the research mission of their institution. The Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Libraries created a position and hired a director of research data management in September 2013. The position was new to the libraries and the university. With the backing of the library administration, a plan for building relationships with VCU faculty, researchers, students, service and resource providers, including grant administrators, was developed to educate and engage the community in data management plan writing and research data management training.
