          HEFCE and Three Other UK Funding Bodies Enact Open Access Mandate

          Posted in Legislation and Government Regulation, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on April 1st, 2014

          The Higher Education Funding Council for England and three other UK funding bodies (the Scottish Funding Council, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and the Department for Employment and Learning) have enacted an open access mandate.

          Here's an excerpt:

          5. The core of this policy is as follows: to be eligible for submission to the post-2014 REF, outputs must have been deposited in an institutional or subject repository on acceptance for publication, and made open-access within a specified time period. This requirement applies to journal articles and conference proceedings only; monographs and other long-form publications, research data and creative and practice-based research outputs are out of scope. Only articles and proceedings accepted for publication after 1 April 2016 will need to fulfil these requirements, but we would strongly urge institutions to implement the policy now. The policy gives a further list of cases where outputs will not need to fulfil the requirements.

                "Response to Elsevier’s Text and Data Mining Policy: A LIBER Discussion Paper"

                Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on March 31st, 2014

                LIBER has released "Response to Elsevier's Text and Data Mining Policy: A LIBER Discussion Paper."

                Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

                LIBER believes that the right to read is the right to mine and that licensing will never bridge the gap in the current copyright framework as it is unscalable and resource intensive. Furthermore, as this discussion paper highlights, licensing has the potential to limit the innovative potential of digital research methods by:

                1. restricting the tools that researchers can use
                2. limiting the way in which research results can be made available
                3. impacting on the transparency and reproducibility of research results.
