"Grant Narrative—Integrating Digital Humanities into the Web of Scholarship with SHARE: An Exploration of Requirements"

Posted in Digital Humanities, Metadata on August 9th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Cynthia Hudson-Vitale et al. have self-archived "Grant Narrative—Integrating Digital Humanities into the Web of Scholarship with SHARE: An Exploration of Requirements."

Here's an excerpt:

This project will develop a plan to optimize the SHARE aggregator and data set for digital humanities in consultation with scholars, institutions, and centers. Given the dispersed nature of modern scholarship, a digital humanities project may produce more than one book or article manuscript, each published on a different publisher’s website, any number of pre-prints on institutional repositories or pre-print servers, data sets and code books on Dryad or Figshare, and text mining or cleaning scripts on github. With many digital humanities projects based in academic departments, such project components may be housed semi-permanently in web-publishing platforms like Omeka without formal integration with library discovery systems or other services to link them to similar projects. As part of a growing open infrastructure movement, the SHARE platform links scholarly activity across the research lifecycle and makes it available as enhanced, free, open metadata. The project team will administer a survey, conduct focus groups, and engage with the humanities community to detail requirements and prototype applications for digital scholarship curation, discovery, and aggregation using SHARE.

See the project's OSF site for additional current and future information.

"Practicing What You Preach: Evaluating Access of Open Access Research"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on August 8th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Teresa Auch Schultz has self-archived "Practicing What You Preach: Evaluating Access of Open Access Research."

Here's an excerpt:

The open access movement seeks to encourage all researchers to make their works openly available and free of paywalls so more people can access their knowledge. Yet some researchers who study open access (OA) continue to publish their work in paywalled journals and fail to make it open. This project set out to study just how many published research articles about OA fall into this category, how many are being made open (whether by being published in a gold OA or hybrid journal or through open deposit), and how library and information science authors compare to other disciplines researching this field. Because of the growth of tools available to help researchers find open versions of articles, this study also sought to compare how these new tools compare to Google Scholar in their ability to disseminating OA research. From a sample collected from Web of Science of articles published since 2010, the study found that although a majority of research articles about OA are open in some form, a little more than a quarter are not. A smaller rate of library science researchers made their work open compared to non-library science researchers. In looking at the copyright of these articles published in hybrid and open journals, authors were more likely to retain copyright ownership if they printed in an open journal compared to authors in hybrid journals. Articles were more likely to be published with a Creative Commons license if published in an open journal compared to those published in hybrid journals.

DigitalKoans Publication Changes

Posted in Digital Scholarship Publications on August 7th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Although DigitalKoans has no formal publishing schedule, you may have noticed that I have been typically posting Monday through Friday for quite some time.

As you would imagine, the weekend is not a peak period for gathering the types of news items I post. In the future, the bulk of DigitalKoans posts will be published Tuesday through Friday.

It's been over 12 years since I established DigitalKoans and over 28 years since I established PACS-L at the University of Houston. I'm now in my late sixties and it's time to pay more attention to Yeats:

An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing

"Singing," in this case, being spending a bit more time on digital art and other creative pursuits.

As usual, I'll continue to notify you of any anticipated DigitalKoans publication interruptions.
