      "Archiving the Web: A Case Study from the University of Victoria"

      Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on October 22nd, 2014

      Corey Davis has published "Archiving the Web: A Case Study from the University of Victoria" in Code4Lib Journal.

      Here's an excerpt:

      The University of Victoria Libraries started archiving websites in 2013, and it quickly became apparent that many scholarly websites being produced by faculty, especially in the digital humanities, were going to prove very challenging to effectively capture and play back. This article will provide an overview of web archiving and explore the considerable legal and technical challenges of implementing a web archiving initiative at a research library, using the University of Victoria's implementation of Archive-it, a web archiving service from the Internet Archive, as a case study, with a special focus on capturing complex, interactive websites that scholars are creating to disseminate their research in new ways.

            "The Open Access Advantage for American Law Reviews"

            Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on October 21st, 2014

            James M. Donovan et al. have self-archived "The Open Access Advantage for American Law Reviews."

            Here's an excerpt:

            Articles available in open access formats enjoy an advantage in citation by subsequent law review works of 53%. For every two citations an article would otherwise receive, it can expect a third when made freely available on the Internet. This benefit is not uniformly spread through the law school tiers. Higher tier journals experience a lower OA advantage (11.4%) due to the attention such prestigious works routinely receive regardless of the format. When focusing on the availability of new scholarship, as compared to creating retrospective collections, the aggregated advantage rises to 60.2%. While the first tier advantage rises to 16.8%, the mid-tiers skyrocket to 89.7%. The fourth tier OA advantage comes in at 81.2%.
