      "Stepping Back from Sharing"

      Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on May 5th, 2015

      Kevin Smith has published "Stepping Back from Sharing" in Scholarly Communications @ Duke.

      Here's an excerpt:

      Two major features of this retreat from openness need to be highlighted. First, it imposes an embargo of at least one year on all self-archiving of final authors' manuscripts, and those embargoes can be as long as four years. Second, when the time finally does roll around when an author can make her own work available through an institutional repository, Elsevier now dictates how that access is to be controlled, mandating the most restrictive form of Creative Commons license, the CC-BY-NC-ND license for all green open access.

          "Global Scholarship: The Role of Subject Repositories in Advancing Research from the Developing World"

          Posted in Digital Repositories, Disciplinary Archives, Open Access, Self-Archiving on May 5th, 2015

          Julia Kelly and Linda Eells have published "Global Scholarship: The Role of Subject Repositories in Advancing Research from the Developing World" in College & Research Libraries News.

          Here's an excerpt:

          While subject repositories successfully fill a scholarly communication niche in particular disciplines, they have not been recognized for the important role they play in promoting global scholarship. Repositories such as AgEcon Search make valuable and unique contributions by increasing publishing options for researchers and thus exposing and distributing research produced in the developing world.

                Elsevier: "Unleashing the Power of Academic Sharing"

                Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on May 4th, 2015

                Elsevier has released "Unleashing the Power of Academic Sharing."

                Here's an excerpt:

                Elsevier's updated sharing and hosting policies explain how articles published with Elsevier may be shared and made available. These provide a more clear and consistent framework that is aligned with the rest of the publishing industry, and which is based on feedback from our authors and institutional partners. While we know the policy changes will not go as far as some would like, we believe they strike an appropriate balance between the rights and responsibilities of sharing.
