"DIY DOI: Leveraging the DOI Infrastructure to Simplify Digital Preservation and Repository Management"

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Linking, Linked Data, and Semantic Web, Metadata on October 19th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Kyle Banerjee and David Forero have published "DIY DOI: Leveraging the DOI Infrastructure to Simplify Digital Preservation and Repository Management" in Code4Lib Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

This article describes methods for how staff with modest technical expertise can leverage the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) infrastructure in combination with third party storage and preservation solutions to build safer, more useful, and easier to manage repositories at much lower cost than is normally possible with standalone systems. It also demonstrates how understanding the underlying mechanisms and questioning the assumptions of technology metaphors such as filesystems can lead to seeing and using tools in new and more powerful ways.

"The Next Stage of SocArXiv’s Development: Bringing Greater Transparency and Efficiency to the Peer Review Process"

Posted in Digital Repositories, Disciplinary Archives, E-Prints, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on October 17th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Philip Cohen has published "The Next Stage of SocArXiv's Development: Bringing Greater Transparency and Efficiency to the Peer Review Proces" in LSE Impact of Social Sciences.

Here's an excerpt:

Looking ahead to the next stage of its development, Philip Cohen considers how SocArXiv might challenge the peer review system to be more efficient and transparent, firstly by confronting the bias that leads many who benefit from the status quo to characterise mooted alternatives as extreme. The value and implications of openness at the various decision points in the system must be debated, as should potentially more disruptive innovations such as non-exclusive review and publication or crowdsourcing reviews.
