"Cultural, Ideological and Practical Barriers to Open Access Adoption within the UK Academy: An Ethnographically Framed Examination"

Gareth J. Johnson has published "Cultural, Ideological and Practical Barriers to Open Access Adoption within the UK Academy: An Ethnographically Framed Examination" in Insights.

Here's an excerpt:

This article presents the results of part of an ethnographic study which examined the perceptions, development and conceptions of open access (OA) practice across the UK higher education environment. It details a qualitative semi-structured interview data capture approach with many institutionally based OA practitioners, which provided a narrative picture of academic and institutional responses to emerging OA dissemination paradigms. Through an analytical process incorporating qualitative content analysis and ideological critique, it focuses on practitioner perceptions of the types and configuration of barriers between scholars and a greater cultural adoption of OA practices. While the greatest problems perceived relate to academic intellectual disengagement or indifference to publishing praxis change, no singular cause of resistance was identified. The study reveals practitioners' perceptions of a multiplicity of operational, technological and ideological barriers blocking progress, and consequently a picture of academic engagement remaining disappointingly patchy. Moreover, moves to increase scholarly compliance through allying it to modalities of fiscal income and metrics, while potentially enhancing practical compliance, appear to risk distorting any revolutionary configuration of OA practices.

Turning FAIR Data Into Reality: Interim Report from the European Commission Expert Group on FAIR Data

The European Commission Expert Group on FAIR Data has released Turning FAIR Data Into Reality: Interim Report from the European Commission Expert Group on FAIR Data.

Here's an excerpt:

The central chapters of the report focus on existing practice in certain fields to ascertain what can be learned from those research areas that have already standardised practices and developed international agreements and infrastructure to enable FAIR data sharing. These examples have helped to define models for FAIR data and the essential components of a FAIR data ecosystem. Naturally the main building blocks in the ecosystem are technology-based services, however the social aspects that drive the system and enable culture change are also addressed in sections of the report covering skills, metrics, rewards, investment and sustainability.

"Conceptualizing Data Curation Activities within Two Academic Libraries"

Sophia Lafferty-Hess et al. have self-archived "Conceptualizing Data Curation Activities within Two Academic Libraries."

Here's an excerpt:

At the 2017 Triangle Research Libraries Network Institute, staff from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University used the 47 data curation activities identified by the Data Curation Network project to create conceptual groupings of data curation activities. The results of this "thought-exercise" are discussed in this white paper. The purpose of this exercise was to provide more specificity around data curation within our individual contexts as a method to consistently discuss our current service models, identify gaps we would like to fill, and determine what is currently out of scope. We hope to foster an open and productive discussion throughout the larger academic library community about how we prioritize data curation activities as we face growing demand and limited resources.

"The Changing Influence of Journal Data Sharing Policies on Local RDM Practices "

Dylanne Dearborn et al. have published "The Changing Influence of Journal Data Sharing Policies on Local RDM Practices" in the International Journal of Digital Curation.

Here's an excerpt:

The purpose of this study was to examine changes in research data deposit policies of highly ranked journals in the physical and applied sciences between 2014 and 2016, as well as to develop an approach to examining the institutional impact of deposit requirements. Policies from the top ten journals (ranked by impact factor from the Journal Citation Reports) were examined in 2014 and again in 2016 in order to determine if data deposits were required or recommended, and which methods of deposit were listed as options. For all 2016 journals with a required data deposit policy, publication information (2009-2015) for the University of Toronto was pulled from Scopus and departmental affiliation was determined for each article. The results showed that the number of high-impact journals in the physical and applied sciences requiring data deposit is growing. In 2014, 71.2% of journals had no policy, 14.7% had a recommended policy, and 13.9% had a required policy (n=836). In contrast, in 2016, there were 58.5% with no policy, 19.4% with a recommended policy, and 22.0% with a required policy (n=880). It was also evident that U of T chemistry researchers are by far the most heavily affected by these journal data deposit requirements, having published 543 publications, representing 32.7% of all publications in the titles requiring data deposit in 2016. The Python scripts used to retrieve institutional publications based on a list of ISSNs have been released on GitHub so that other institutions can conduct similar research.
