          An Analytical Review of Text and Data Mining Practices and Approaches in Europe

          Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Legislation and Government Regulation, Reports and White Papers on May 5th, 2016

          OpenForum Europe has released An Analytical Review of Text and Data Mining Practices and Approaches in Europe: Policy Recommendations in View of the Upcoming Copyright Legislative Proposal.

          Here's an excerpt:

          Europe needs a regime which enables any researcher, citizen, company or other entity to engage in TDM activities, using material to which they have lawful access, wherever they feel there is a good idea. The exact commercial rewards can be managed at subsequent stages, depending on the implementation of the mining outcome. The protection could be considered at the point at which some clearly commercially beneficial project, product, service, business or company has emerged.

                  "Breaking Down Pros and Cons of Preprints in Biomedicine"

                  Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on May 4th, 2016

                  Hilda Bastian has published "Breaking Down Pros and Cons of Preprints in Biomedicine" in Absolutely Maybe.

                  Here's an excerpt:

                  The pros and cons on this are arguably different for physics and biomedicine. It might be easier to copy or fold in someone else's insights into an experiment or paper and beat them to press, so the argument goes. Perhaps this is in part a concern about losing out on a citation in a higher impact journal if your work is no longer seen as exciting. If it's a common concern, then it's a serious hurdle for preprint acceptance.

                      Addressing the Challenges with Organizational Identifiers and ISNI

                      Posted in Metadata on May 4th, 2016

                      OCLC Research has released Addressing the Challenges with Organizational Identifiers and ISNI.

                      Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

                      This report focusses on organizational identifiers from the perspective of academic institutions. Their ranks and reputation often determine their success in obtaining funding and attracting or retaining faculty. Identifiers provide the "glue" for institutions and funder systems to support comparing and ranking the outputs of the research process; assessing the impact of grants between institutions and their funders; and tracking and collating publications between researchers and their publishers. The report outlines a number of scenarios where the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) can be used to disambiguate organizations, including real-world examples.
