"Research Data Management Tools and Workflows: Experimental Work at the University of Porto"

Cristina Ribeiro et al. have published "Research Data Management Tools and Workflows: Experimental Work at the University of Porto" in IASSIST Quarterly.

Here's an excerpt:

We focus on data preparation, namely on dataset organization and metadata creation. For groups in the long tail, we propose Dendro, an open-source research data management platform, and explore automatic metadata creation with LabTablet, an electronic laboratory notebook. For groups demanding a domain-specific approach, our analysis has resulted in the development of models and applications to organize the data and support some of their use cases. Overall, we have adopted ontologies for metadata modeling, keeping in sight metadata dissemination as Linked Open Data.

"Open Textbooks—An Untapped Opportunity for Universities, Colleges and Schools"

Vivien Rolfe and Beck Pit have published "Open Textbooks—An Untapped Opportunity for Universities, Colleges and Schools" in Insights.

Here's an excerpt:

The pilot phase of the UK Open Textbook project reached completion in April 2018. This article discusses the project, what open textbooks are, and why they are an untapped opportunity for universities, colleges and schools. The North American models of open textbook creation and uptake (adoption) are designed to help reduce university student financial worries and enhance learning opportunities, and provide much-needed resources for schools (or the K12 system in the US and Canada). The ability to repurpose books leads to innovative and engaging pedagogies including students as co-authors. Yet in the UK, the level of discussion and awareness of the opportunities afforded by open textbooks, and the existence of a small number of UK initiatives, is poor.

The aim of the UK Open Textbook project was to raise awareness and host activities to encourage the adoption of open textbooks. The results of the project are discussed, along with the policy, cultural and practice changes required to scale up these approaches. Why should our learners miss out?

"The Weakest Link—Workflows in Open Access Agreements: The Experience of the Vienna University Library and Recommendations for Future Negotiations"

Rita Pinhasi et al. have published "The Weakest Link—Workflows in Open Access Agreements: The Experience of the Vienna University Library and Recommendations for Future Negotiations" in Insights.

Here's an excerpt:

In recent years open access (OA) publishing agreements have left a lasting impact on several aspects of the research life cycle, and on the manner in which institutions work with publishers and researchers to support the transition to OA. Apart from the immediate financial implications, one significant challenge libraries are facing is the sub-optimal level of workflow infrastructure that could determine the success or failure of otherwise innovative approaches. This article will examine the Vienna University Library’s hands-on experience with OA agreements and the implementation of relevant workflows. It will describe existing workflows, review the benefits of the various systems in place and identify areas for improvement. The paper will also propose items for discussion for organizations when negotiating OA agreements with publishers and will highlight potential pitfalls to be avoided.

"What’s Cached is Prologue: Reviewing Recent Web Archives Research Towards Supporting Scholarly Use"

Emily Maemura has self-archived "What's Cached is Prologue: Reviewing Recent Web Archives Research Towards Supporting Scholarly Use."

Here's an excerpt:

Research on web archives spans many disciplines, often requiring domain-specific expertise. The wide-ranging nature of the literature makes it difficult to obtain a current overview of the field, but this view is needed to identify which core challenges define the field, and assess the different approaches taken to address them. This paper provides such a review of the current landscape of web archives research, focusing on addressing the common challenges faced to support scholarly use of archived web materials. The analysis describes three challenges and identifies key concepts and current approaches for each: (1) how to organize and select from web archives collections; (2) how to critically examine these sources; and (3) how to approach ethics and consent for using archived web materials. The discussion addresses open questions and tensions, highlighting the sociotechnical nature of these challenges and revealing opportunities to apply existing work from the body of knowledge of information studies. It concludes with several recommendations for future research directions to support scholarly use of web archives.
