"Piracy, Public Access, and Preservation: An Exploration of Sustainable Accessibility in a Public Torrent Index"

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on December 14th, 2016

John Martin has self-archived "Piracy, Public Access, and Preservation: An Exploration of Sustainable Accessibility in a Public Torrent Index."

Here's an excerpt:

Using a snapshot of torrents on the site, this study considers the potential for torrent networks to preserve and provide access to cultural materials in the form of digital media content. Metadata from 2.1 million torrents were categorized by media type and the robustness of given torrents was assessed. Trends over time, such as number of uploads and volume, were also investigated. This study found that relatively few torrents exhibit long-term survivability, even though the overall volume in the index shows continuous increase.

"On the Origin of Nonequivalent States: How We Can Talk about Preprints"

Posted in Open Access, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on December 14th, 2016

Cameron Neylon et al. have self-archived "On the Origin of Nonequivalent States: How We Can Talk about Preprints."

Here's an excerpt:

In this paper, we argue that these discussions often conflate two separate issues, the history of the manuscript and the status granted it by different communities. In this paper, we propose a new model that distinguishes the characteristics of the object, its "state", from the subjective "standing" granted to it by different communities. This provides a way to discuss the difference in practices between communities, which will deliver more productive conversations and facilitate negotiation on how to collectively improve the process of scholarly communications not only for preprints but other forms of scholarly contributions.
