      "Focusing on Student Research In The Institutional Repository DigitalCommons@USU"

      Posted in Digital Repositories, Institutional Repositories, Open Access, Research Libraries, Self-Archiving on November 5th, 2014

      Danielle Barandiaran et al. have published "Focusing on Student Research In The Institutional Repository DigitalCommons@USU" in College & Research Libraries News.

      Here's an excerpt:

      Student research is a significant and rapidly growing component of the institutional repository (IR) at Utah State University (USU). A briefing paper prepared for Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook (OASIS) points to student works as one of nine purposes for an IR.1 It is not uncommon to find undergraduate and graduate theses and dissertations in IRs. In 2013, an analysis of 283 U.S. repositories using the bepress or DSpsace platforms indicated 71% include this type of student research. However, other student research such as posters, presentations, or papers were only found in 38% of these repositories. Utah State University's IR actively solicits student research resulting from research groups and individuals, as well as posters and creative works featured in the university's Student Showcase symposium.

            "Does Google Scholar Contain All Highly Cited Documents (1950-2013)?"

            Posted in Google and Other Search Engines, Scholarly Metrics on November 4th, 2014

            Alberto Martín-Martín et al. have self-archived "Does Google Scholar Contain All Highly Cited Documents (1950-2013)."

            Here's an excerpt:

            The study of highly cited documents on Google Scholar (GS) has never been addressed to date in a comprehensive manner. The objective of this work is to identify the set of highly cited documents in Google Scholar and define their core characteristics: their languages, their file format, or how many of them can be accessed free of charge. We will also try to answer some additional questions that hopefully shed some light about the use of GS as a tool for assessing scientific impact through citations. The decalogue of research questions is shown below:

            1. Which are the most cited documents in GS?
            2. Which are the most cited document types in GS?
            3. What languages are the most cited documents written in GS?
            4. How many highly cited documents are freely accessible?
            4.1 What file types are the most commonly used to store these highly cited documents?
            4.2 Which are the main providers of these documents?
            5. How many of the highly cited documents indexed by GS are also indexed by WoS?
            6. Is there a correlation between the number of citations that these highly cited documents have received in GS and the number of citations they have received in WoS?
            7. How many versions of these highly cited documents has GS detected?
            8. Is there a correlation between the number of versions GS has detected for these documents, and the number citations they have received?
            9. Is there a correlation between the number of versions GS has detected for these documents, and their position in the search engine result pages?
            10. Is there some relation between the positions these documents occupy in the search engine result pages, and the number of citations they have received?

                UK Launches New Licensing Program for 91 Million Orphan Works

                Posted in Copyright, Digital Copyright Wars, Legislation and Government Regulation on November 4th, 2014

                The UK has launched a new licensing program for orphan works that will cover around 91 million works.

                Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

                A new licensing scheme launched today (29 October 2014) could give wider access to at least 91 million culturally valuable creative works-including diaries, photographs, oral history recordings and documentary films.

                These works are covered by copyright, but rights holders cannot be found by those who need to seek permission to reproduce them. Under the new scheme, a licence can be granted by the Intellectual Property Office so that these works can be reproduced on websites, in books and on TV without breaking the law, while protecting the rights of owners so they can be remunerated if they come forward.
