"CRL’s ‘Pivot’ to Open Access"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing on September 22nd, 2016

The Center for Research Libraries has released "CRL's 'Pivot' to Open Access."

Here's an excerpt:

Therefore, as of January 1, 2017, all digital materials hosted on the web by CRL, that derive from source materials in the public domain or for which CRL has secured the requisite rights and permissions, will be available without restriction. . . .

  1. CRL has digitized and posted on the web more than twelve million pages of materials from its collections to date. . . .
  2. Because of potential copyright restrictions, only about 35% of the twelve million are now available in open access. . . .
  3. The amount of public domain content on CRL servers will grow within the next few years, as on-demand digitization continues and as CRL receives digital files produced through partnerships. CRL in-house production now digitizes nearly one million pages per year, and generates approximately 2.9 million digital pages of primary legal publications annually through its Global Resources Partnership in Law and Government.

"Citation Analysis with Microsoft Academic"

Posted in Google and Other Search Engines, Scholarly Metrics on September 21st, 2016

Sven E. Hug, Michael Ochsner, and Martin P. Braendle have self-archived "Citation Analysis with Microsoft Academic."

Here's an excerpt:

We explored if and how Microsoft Academic (MA) could be used for bibliometric analyses. First, we examined the Academic Knowledge API (AK API), an interface to access MA data. Second, we performed a comparative citation analysis of researchers by normalizing data from MA and Scopus. We found that MA offers structured and rich metadata, which facilitates data retrieval, handling and processing. In addition, the AK API allows retrieving histograms. These features have to be considered a major advantage of MA over Google Scholar. However, there are two serious limitations regarding the available metadata. First, MA does not provide the document type of a publication and, second, the 'fields of study' are dynamic, too fine-grained and field-hierarchies are incoherent. Nevertheless, we showed that average-based indicators as well as distribution-based indicators can be calculated with MA data. We postulate that MA has the potential to be used for fully-fledged bibliometric analyses.

"What It Means to Be Green: Exploring Publishers’ Changing Approaches to Green Open Access"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on September 20th, 2016

Elizabeth Gadd and Denise Troll Covey have published "What It Means to Be Green: Exploring Publishers' Changing Approaches to Green Open Access" in LSE Impact of Social Sciences.

Here's an excerpt:

To test the theory that publishers are in reality discouraging open access as defined at Bethesda and preferred by authors, we took a look at the number of publishers meeting the criteria for RoMEO Green over time and the number meeting the criteria for a 'redefined green', namely, allowing immediate deposit of the post-print in an institutional repository. We found that whilst the percentage of RoMEO Green publishers had increased 8% over the 12 years, the percentage meeting the 'redefined green' criteria decreased by 35% (Figure 1).

"What Kind of World Is STM Living In?

Posted in Copyright, Digital Copyright Wars, Open Access, Publishing, Research Libraries, Scholarly Journals on September 20th, 2016

The League of European Research Universities has released What Kind of World Is STM Living In.

Here's an excerpt:

4 September saw the International Association of STM publishers (STM) issue a response to the EC's proposed Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, which flies in the face of LERU's views contained in its own Press Release. Amongst other things, STM is calling for the extension of ancillary copyright to cover academic publishing, implying that they will take legal action if this does not happen. . . . Ancillary copyright in this case would extend copyright protection, not allowing academics and universities freely to link to/use the world of information on the Internet, placing publishers in control of the information environment. LERU rejects this as counter to academic freedom and to the EC's vison for Open Science.
