DLPA Strategic Plan 2015 through 2017

Posted in Digital Libraries on January 29th, 2015

The Digital Public Library of America has released DLPA Strategic Plan 2015 through 2017.

Here's an excerpt:

We must, first and foremost, complete our hub network so that all collections and item types in America have an on-ramp to DPLA; fully build out our technology platform to ensure we have a solid foundation for many years to come and that anticipates further growth and diversification; and pursue an outreach plan that gets DPLA resources more widely into the hands of the global public, into education at all levels from kindergarten through graduate schools (with a special focus on underresourced organizations), and onto the screens of eager amateur and family historians and the developers who are creating the latest apps and websites.

          Bibliometric Study on Dutch Open Access

          Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Reports and White Papers on January 28th, 2015

          The Government of the Netherlands has released Bibliometric Study on Dutch Open Access.

          Here's an excerpt:

          In this text we will primarily focus on the way Open Access (OA from now on) publications are represented in the Web of Science database. We have collected data for this analysis in two different ways, which leads to different perspectives on OA publishing in the Netherlands. We focus on the output of three smaller scientific nations in Europe, next to the Netherlands we focus on Denmark and Switzerland, as these countries do contest the scientific runner up positions globally after the USA, and are more or less of comparable volume in economic terms.

              SciELO: 15 Years of Open Access

              Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on January 28th, 2015

              SciELO has released SciELO: 15 Years of Open Access.

              Here's an excerpt:

              The creation of SciELO 15 years ago and its further development were driven by two innovative and pioneering approaches: first, the indexing of national quality journals to complement international indexes and the publication of the full texts with free access on the Web in the modality known today as the "Golden Road", which took place about four years before the launch of the Budapest Declaration that is internationally agreed to as the beginning of the Open Access movement; and, second, the cooperative convergence of independent publishers, editors and national research agencies around a common objective to increase the visibility and quality of journals (Packer 1998; Meneghini, 2003; Packer 2009). During this development, SciELO became a standard of quality for the journals it indexes. As of June 2013, the SciELO network covers 15 Ibero-American countries plus South Africa, with each country publishing a national collection of journals in the network. There are also two multinational thematic collections in the network. Together these countries index about one thousand journal titles that publish more than 40 thousand articles per year. To date, the network has published a total of more than 400 thousand open access articles that receive a daily average of over 1.5 million article downloads, 65% as PDF files and 35% as HTML files.

                Digital Art: Recent Digital Pastel Drawings and Oil Paintings

                Posted in Digital Art on January 27th, 2015

                In late January, I continued to transform public domain photos from the late 19th century into digital pastel drawings and oil paintings using a variety of Photoshop plug-ins and Topaz Impression. Full-size images (8×10") and descriptions of the processing steps involved are available on my Flickr photostream: https://www.flickr.com/photos/charleswbaileyjr/.
