"Open Access and Promotion and Tenure Evaluation Plans at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire"

Posted in Open Access, Open Science on July 2nd, 2017

Stephanie H. Wical and Gregory J. Kocken have published "Open Access and Promotion and Tenure Evaluation Plans at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire" in Serials Review.

Here's an excerpt:

Department and program evaluation plans at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire were examined to see if these documents provide evidence that could be used to justify supporting the publication of peer-reviewed open access articles toward tenure and promotion. . . .

The existing body of scholarship suggests that tenure-line faculty fear publishing in open access journals because it could adversely impact their chances of promotion and tenure. The authors of this current study sought to determine if department and program evaluation plans could influence negative perceptions faculty have of open access journals.

Second, the toolkit will be deployed in a cloud-based environment that will provide a one-stop portal for scholars to ingest their collections and execute a number of analyses with the click of a mouse. Finally, datathons—or hackathons—will build a cohesive and sustainable user community by bringing the core project team members together with librarians, archivists, and other interested researchers.

"A Reputation Economy: How Individual Reward Considerations Trump Systemic Arguments for Open Access to Data"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Open Access, Open Science on June 29th, 2017

Benedikt Fecher et al. have published "A Reputation Economy: How Individual Reward Considerations Trump Systemic Arguments for Open Access to Data" in Palgrave Communications.

Here's an excerpt:

In this article, we explore the question of what drives open access to research data using a survey among 1564 mainly German researchers across all disciplines. We show that, regardless of their disciplinary background, researchers recognize the benefits of open access to research data for both their own research and scientific progress as a whole. Nonetheless, most researchers share their data only selectively. We show that individual reward considerations conflict with widespread data sharing. Based on our results, we present policy implications that are in line with both individual reward considerations and scientific progress.
