NCSU’s Susan K. Nutter to Retire

Posted in ARL Libraries, People in the News on June 12th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Susan K. Nutter, Vice Provost and Director of Libraries at North Carolina State University, will retire this fall.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

When Nutter arrived at NC State in 1987, the Libraries ranked near the bottom of academic libraries in every significant category. Through her decades of innovative work, including the conception and construction of the "library of the future"—the James B. Hunt Jr. Library—on Centennial Campus in 2013, the NCSU Libraries stands among the best academic libraries in the nation.

In addition to the long list of Hunt Library honors, Nutter has also garnered the triple crown of national libraries awards during her tenure, being named the 2016 Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Academic/Research Librarian of the Year and the 2005 Library Journal "Librarian of the Year," and leading the first university library to win the ACRL "Excellence in Academic Libraries Award" in 2000. Last spring, Nutter accepted the IMLS National Medal for Museum and Library Service on the Libraries' behalf from First Lady Michelle Obama in a White House ceremony.

"Wide-Open: Accelerating Public Data Release by Automating Detection of Overdue Datasets"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Open Science on June 9th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Maxim Grechkin, Hoifung Poon, and Bill Howe have published "Wide-Open: Accelerating Public Data Release by Automating Detection of Overdue Datasets" in PLOS Biology.

Here's an excerpt:

Open data is a vital pillar of open science and a key enabler for reproducibility, data reuse, and novel discoveries. Enforcement of open-data policies, however, largely relies on manual efforts, which invariably lag behind the increasingly automated generation of biological data. To address this problem, we developed a general approach to automatically identify datasets overdue for public release by applying text mining to identify dataset references in published articles and parse query results from repositories to determine if the datasets remain private. We demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach on 2 popular National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) repositories: Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) and Sequence Read Archive (SRA). Our Wide-Open system identified a large number of overdue datasets, which spurred administrators to respond directly by releasing 400 datasets in one week.

It allows users to quickly upload and read abstracts and full-text papers, free of charge. A preprint is the author’s own write-up of research results and analysis that has not been peer-reviewed or had any value added to it by a publisher (such as formatting, copy-editing, technical enhancements). A preprint server, or working paper repository as they are also known, allows users to share these documents.

Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Agriculture Scholars

Posted in Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Communication on June 8th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Ithaka S+R has released Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Agriculture Scholars.

Here's an excerpt:

Agriculture scholars report relatively low challenges with digital discovery and access, particularly in contrast to information management, in which a lack of services and support, coupled with gaps in responsibility, lead scholars to utilize idiosyncratic approaches to the detriment of long-term preservation. While they have a wealth of options for disseminating their scholarship, agriculture scholars struggle with conveying the underlying findings and importance of their research to wider audiences.

  2. Clinical trials that begin enrolling participants on or after January 1, 2019 must include a data sharing plan in the trial’s registration. The ICMJE's policy regarding trial registration is explained at www.icmje.org/recommendations/browse/publishing-and-editorial-issues/clinical-trial-registration.html.

"Are Open Access Journals Immune from Piracy?"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on June 7th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Angela Cochran has published "Are Open Access Journals Immune from Piracy?" in The Scholarly Kitchen.

Here's an excerpt:

Even though Sci-Hub is billed as providing access to paywalled content, there appear to be thousands of open access articles in the host database. Sci-Hub provided usage of their services from 2015 to Science news writer John Bohannon with the full data set. Reviewing just the data from December 2015, I found that over 200 users accessed PLOS ONE content, over 450 users accessed Hindawi content, and a whopping 2,145 users accessed BioMed Central content.
