"National Licence Negotiations Advancing the Open Access Transition—A View from the UK"

Liam Earney has published "National Licence Negotiations Advancing the Open Access Transition—A View from the UK" in Insights.

Here's an excerpt:

Jisc Collections has had agreements with open access (OA) publishers since the mid-2000s. In 2014, following the UK government’s response to the Finch Report, it started to target hybrid OA via 'offsetting agreements' that covered both subscriptions and article processing charges for OA.

This article will provide a status update on OA negotiations in the UK in the context of the UK's progress towards OA. It will look at some of the concerns about the progress of OA in the UK, how negotiations have evolved in response, and will look at prospects for their future direction.

"ARCHANGEL: Trusted Archives of Digital Public Documents"

John Collomosse, have self-archived "ARCHANGEL: Trusted Archives of Digital Public Documents."

Here's an excerpt:

We present ARCHANGEL; a de-centralised platform for ensuring the long-term integrity of digital documents stored within public archives. Document integrity is fundamental to public trust in archives. Yet currently that trust is built upon institutional reputation—trust at face value in a centralised authority, like a national government archive or University. ARCHANGEL proposes a shift to a technological underscoring of that trust, using distributed ledger technology (DLT) to cryptographically guarantee the provenance, immutability and so the integrity of archived documents. We describe the ARCHANGEL architecture, and report on a prototype of that architecture build over the Ethereum infrastructure. We report early evaluation and feedback of ARCHANGEL from stakeholders in the research data archives space.

"Data-Driven Transition: Joint Reporting of Subscription Expenditure and Publication Costs"

Irene Barbers et al. have published "Data-Driven Transition: Joint Reporting of Subscription Expenditure and Publication Costs" in Publications.

Here's an excerpt:

The transition process from the subscription model to the open access model in the world of scholarly publishing brings a variety of challenges to libraries. Within this evolving landscape, the present article takes a focus on budget control for both subscription and publication expenditure with the opportunity to enable the shift from one to the other. To reach informed decisions with a solid base of data to be used in negotiations with publishers, the diverse already-existing systems for managing publications costs and for managing journal subscriptions have to be adapted to allow comprehensive reporting on publication expenditure and subscription expenditure. In the case presented here, two separate systems are described and the establishment of joint reporting covering both these systems is introduced. Some of the results of joint reporting are presented as an example of how such a comprehensive monitoring can support management decisions and negotiations. On a larger scale, the establishment of the National Open Access Monitor in Germany is introduced, bringing together a diverse range of data from several already-existing systems, including, among others, holdings information, usage data, and data on publication fees. This system will enable libraries to access all relevant data with a single user interface.

"Death By 1,000 Cuts: Periodicals Price Survey 2018"

Stephen Bosch et al. have published "Death By 1,000 Cuts: Periodicals Price Survey 2018 in Library Journal."

Here's an excerpt:

The journals marketplace is a mature market in which demand and supply are in equilibrium. While the original e-journal big deal pricing model of maintaining the current spend with a publisher plus a pro rata amount to access additional content did expand offerings to libraries, it did not address the underlying funding problems and in many cases made them worse. The growth of Gold Open Access… addressed access to content but compounded budget issues by adding additional costs.

"Implications of the Reversal of Net Neutrality Rules and Next Steps to Protect the Open Internet"

Krista L. Cox has published "Implications of the Reversal of Net Neutrality Rules and Next Steps to Protect the Open Internet" in Research Library Issues.

Here's an excerpt:

Ultimately, the best outcome for strong net neutrality protections would be for the DC Circuit—and the Supreme Court, should it agree to review whatever decision comes out of the lower court—to overturn the FCC’s repeal of its Open Internet Order. Even if Congress acts under the Congressional Review Act, President Trump would certainly not sign the resolution, making repeal of the FCC’s new order through that mechanism highly unlikely. Any legislative solution in Congress, while it may provide stronger protections than the FCC's new approach, is unlikely to reach the full extent of protections from the 2015 order. Additionally, although states and municipalities can blunt the effect of the FCC's repudiation of net neutrality regulations, this approach offers a mere piecemeal solution that will result in, at best, a patchwork of net neutrality rules that protects users in some states, but not in others.

"Integration of an Active Research Data System with a Data Repository to Streamline the Research Data Lifecyle: Pure-NOMAD Case Study"

Simone Ivan Conte et al. have published "Integration of an Active Research Data System with a Data Repository to Streamline the Research Data Lifecyle: Pure-NOMAD Case Study " in the International Journal of Digital Curation.

Here's an excerpt:

Research funders have introduced requirements that expect researchers to properly manage and publicly share their research data, and expect institutions to put in place services to support researchers in meeting these requirements. So far the general focus of these services and systems has been on addressing the final stages of the research data lifecycle (archive, share and re-use), rather than stages related to the active phase of the cycle (collect/create and analyse). As a result, full integration of active data management systems with data repositories is not yet the norm, making the streamlined transition of data from an active to a published and archived status an important challenge. In this paper we present the integration between an active data management system developed in-house (NOMAD) and Elsevier's Pure data repository used at our institution, with the aim of offering a simple workflow to facilitate and promote the data deposit process. The integration results in a new data management and publication workflow that helps researchers to save time, minimize human errors related to manually handling files, and further promote data deposit together with collaboration across the institution.

"New Release: arXiv Search v0.1"

Cornell University has released "New Release: arXiv Search v0.1."

Here's an excerpt:

Today we launched a reimplementation of our search system. As part of our broader strategy for arXiv-NG, we are incrementally decoupling components from the classic arXiv codebase, and replacing them with more modular services developed in Python. Our goal was to replace the aging Lucene search backend, achieve feature-parity with the classic search system, and give the search interface an opportunistic face-lift. . . .The most important win for us in this milestone is that the new backend lays the groundwork for more dramatic improvements to search, our APIs, and other components targeted for reimplementation in arXiv-NG.

"Sharing Selves: Developing an Ethical Framework for Curating Social Media Data"

Sara Mannheimer and Elizabeth A. Hull have published "Sharing Selves: Developing an Ethical Framework for Curating Social Media Data" in the International Journal of Digital Curation.

Here's an excerpt:

Open sharing of social media data raises new ethical questions that researchers, repositories and data curators must confront, with little existing guidance available. In this paper, the authors draw upon their experiences in their multiple roles as data curators, academic librarians, and researchers to propose the STEP framework for curating and sharing social media data. The framework is intended to be used by data curators facilitating open publication of social media data. Two case studies from the Dryad Digital Repository serve to demonstrate implementation of the STEP framework. The STEP framework can serve as one important 'step' along the path to achieving safe, ethical, and reproducible social media research practice.

Digital Scholarship and DigitalKoans Turn 13

Digital Scholarship and DigitalKoans debuted on April 20, 2005. From April 2005 through December 2017, its publications and website have had over 11.3 million visitors from 234 Internet country domains and over 30.1 million page views (excluding spiders)—far exceeding my modest expectations for this small noncommercial site. Thanks for your interest.

When I launched PACS-L (The Public-Access Computer Systems Forum) and The Public-Access Computer Systems Review in the summer of 1989, it seemed like a wild-eyed experiment in an era where online journal access typically meant paying a librarian to access a citation database on a dial-up terminal and getting a printout of the resultant references. Who was to know that it would lead to being a digital publisher for 29 years? A long, strange trip indeed.
