Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Repositories on October 26th, 2016

Colleen Fallaw et al. have published "Overly Honest Data Repository Development" in Code4Lib Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

After a year of development, the library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has launched a repository, called the Illinois Data Bank (https://databank.illinois.edu/), to provide Illinois researchers with a free, self-serve publishing platform that centralizes, preserves, and provides persistent and reliable access to Illinois research data. This article presents a holistic view of development by discussing our overarching technical, policy, and interface strategies. By openly presenting our design decisions, the rationales behind those decisions, and associated challenges this paper aims to contribute to the library community's work to develop repository services that meet growing data preservation and sharing needs.

Virginia Steel on Open Access 2020 and the Pay-It-Forward Study: "An Open Letter to the Academic Community"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on October 25th, 2016

Virginia Steel, UCLA University Librarian, has released "An Open Letter to the Academic Community."

Here's an excerpt:

I fully support the laudable goals of all members of the open access movement and am proud to count myself among them . However, I feel quite strongly that the mechanism OA2020 proposes to achieve those goals [article processing charges] would not be workable across the broad international spectrum of research institutions, funding bodies, and publishers. Based on the limited amount of research that has been done to date, the model appears likely to cost more in both the short and longer term, making it as financially unsustainable as the current system.
