    "An Analysis of Evolving Metadata Influences, Standards, and Practices in Electronic Theses and Dissertations"

    Posted in Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs), Metadata on April 11th, 2016

    Sarah Potvin and Santi Thompson have published "An Analysis of Evolving Metadata Influences, Standards, and Practices in Electronic Theses and Dissertations" in Library Resources & Technical Services.

    Here's an excerpt:

    This study seeks to raise awareness of divergences between current practices and metadata standards and guidelines for electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). We use a multifaceted approach to consider the philosophies that have guided the design of several metadata standards, offering a close case study focused on efforts by the Texas Digital Library to forge a common standard. Analysis is rooted in literatures on metadata quality, shareable or federated metadata, and interoperability, with attention to the impact of systems, tools, and practices on ETD date metadata. This examination of semantic interoperability issues serves as an articulation of the need for a more robust ideal moving forward, rooted in lifecycle models of metadata and concerned with the long-term curation and preservation of ETDs.

It highlights areas in the area of scholarly communication that STS members need to know more about or want to know more about. It presents the status of open access policies at members' institutions and the needs expressed by members about activities that STS or ACRL could undertake to help advance their work in the areas of scholarly communication.

                      Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on April 7th, 2016

                      Jyrki Ilva et al. have published "The Costs of Open and Closed Access: Using the Finnish Research Output as an Example" in LIBER Quarterly.

                      Here's an excerpt:

                      As business models of Open Access publishing are still under development, the aim of our paper is to assess the statistical tools and data that the Finnish libraries currently have for comparing the costs associated with different modes of disseminating scientific publications. We will also analyse the potential costs associated with Open Access publishing models and compare them with the current cost structure of—mostly—paywalled (PW) access. . . . We will discuss the alternatives on how best to develop statistical tools to estimate the true costs of scientific publishing.
