              "Beyond Beall’s List: Better Understanding Predatory Publishers"

              Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on March 10th, 2015

              Monica Berger and Jill Cirasella have published "Beyond Beall's List: Better Understanding Predatory Publishers" in College & Research Libraries News.

              Here's an excerpt:

              Although predatory publishers predate OA, their recent explosion was expedited by the emergence and success of fee-charging OA journals. No matter how strong our urge to support and defend OA, librarians cannot deny the profusion of predators in the OA arena; John Bohannon's recent "sting" made abundantly clear (despite methodological flaws) that there are many bad actors. Rather, we should seek to understand their methods, track their evolution, and communicate their characteristics to our patrons.

                      "The OA Interviews: Alison Mudditt, Director, University of California Press"

                      Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Books, Scholarly Journals, University Presses on March 9th, 2015

                      Richard Poynder has published "The OA Interviews: Alison Mudditt, Director, University of California Press" in Open and Shut? in which Mudditt discusses the UC Press' Collabra and Luminos open access programs.

                      Here's an excerpt:

                      Collabra's model speaks to publishers, libraries, funders, and researchers who are seeking more cost transparency and greater recognition of the critical role that the academic and scientific community plays in journal publishing. In our model, the people who do the fundamental work of peer-review are recognized for this and are able to decide where to place that value.
