    "A Reputation Economy: Results from an Empirical Survey on Academic Data Sharing"

    Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on March 4th, 2015

    Benedikt Fecher et al. have self-archived "A Reputation Economy: Results from an Empirical Survey on Academic Data Sharing."

    Here's an excerpt:

    We surveyed 2661 individual academic researchers across all disciplines on their dealings with data, their publication practices, and motives for sharing or withholding research data. The results for 1564 valid responses show that researchers across disciplines recognise the benefit of secondary research data for their own work and for scientific progress as a whole-still they only practice it in moderation. An explanation for this evidence could be an academic system that is not driven by monetary incentives, nor the desire for scientific progress, but by individual reputation-expressed in (high ranked journal) publications. We label this system a Reputation Economy. This special economy explains our findings that show that researchers have a nuanced idea how to provide adequate formal recognition for making data available to others-namely data citations. We conclude that data sharing will only be widely adopted among research professionals if sharing pays in form of reputation. Thus, policy measures that intend to foster research collaboration need to understand academia as a reputation economy. Successful measures must value intermediate products, such as research data, more highly than it is the case now.

          Canadian Tri-Agency Open Access Policy

          Posted in Open Access on March 3rd, 2015

          The Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada have adopted a harmonized open access policy.

          Here's an excerpt from the FAQ:

          The Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications requires that peer-reviewed journal publications resulting from Tri-Agency (NSERC, SSHRC or CIHR) grants be freely accessible online within 12 months of publication.

          Grant recipients may comply with the policy through one of the following routes:

          • Grant recipients archive the final peer-reviewed full-text manuscript in an online repository where it will be freely accessible within 12 months (e.g., institutional repository or discipline-based repository). It is the responsibility of the grant recipient to determine which publishers allow authors to retain copyright and/or allow authors to archive journal publications in accordance with funding agency policies.
          • Grant recipients can publish in a journal that offers open access or that offers open access on its website within 12 months.

              "The Economics of Open Access"

              Posted in Open Access, Publishing on March 3rd, 2015

              Walt Crawford as published "The Economics of Open Access" in Cites & Insights: Crawford at Large.

              Here's an excerpt:

              This essay is primarily about open access, but strays into journal publishing in general. As usual, it's a combination of resources (cites) and commentary (insights), divided into ten overlapping segments. I believe the mèlange will be informative and useful, although I'm certain it won't provide pat answers to most questions, because such answers don't exist.

                    Altmetric Mentions and the Communication of Medical Research

                    Posted in Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Metrics on March 2nd, 2015

                    Digital Science has released Altmetric Mentions and the Communication of Medical Research.

                    Here's an excerpt:

                    Social and mainstream media mentions of research publications appear much more rapidly than conventional academic citations and are generated by a wider range of users. They therefore offer the potential for early and complementary indicators of research impact. Such indicators could also identify new kinds of economic and social impact.

                    In this report we explore the relevance of such new indicators to research in medical and health sciences.

                        "The Educational Value of Truly Interactive Science Publishing"

                        Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on March 2nd, 2015

                        Michael J. Ackerman has published "The Educational Value of Truly Interactive Science Publishing" in The Journal of Electronic Publishing.

                        Here's an excerpt:

                        Interactive Scientific Publishing (ISP) has been developed by the Optical Society of America with support from the National Library of Medicine at NIH. It allows authors to electronically publish papers which are linked to the referenced 2D and 3D original image datasets. These image datasets can then be viewed and analyzed interactively by the reader. ISP provides the software for authors to assemble and link their source data to their publication. But more important is that it provides readers with image viewing and analysis tools. The goal of ISP is to improve learning and understanding of the presented information. This paper describes ISP and its effect on learning and understanding. ISP was shown to have enough educational value that readers were willing to invest in the required set-up and learning phases. The social aspects of data sharing and the enlarged review process may be the hardest obstacles to overcome.
