"Guidelines for Open Peer Review Implementation"

Tony Ross-Hellauer and Edit Gõrõgh have published "Guidelines for Open Peer Review Implementation" in Research Integrity and Peer Review (Attribution 4.0 International License).

Here's an excerpt:

Open peer review (OPR) is moving into the mainstream, but it is often poorly understood and surveys of researcher attitudes show important barriers to implementation. As more journals move to implement and experiment with the myriad of innovations covered by this term, there is a clear need for best practice guidelines to guide implementation. This brief article aims to address this knowledge gap, reporting work based on an interactive stakeholder workshop to create best-practice guidelines for editors and journals who wish to transition to OPR. Although the advice is aimed mainly at editors and publishers of scientific journals, since this is the area in which OPR is at its most mature, many of the principles may also be applicable for the implementation of OPR in other areas (e.g., books, conference submissions).

"Decoding Academic Fair Use: Transformative Use and the Fair Use Doctrine in Scholarship"

Matthew D. Bunker has published "Decoding Academic Fair Use: Transformative Use and the Fair Use Doctrine in Scholarship" in The Journal of Copyright in Education and Librarianship.

Here's an excerpt:

Fair use in copyright law is an enormously complex legal doctrine. Although much scholarly attention has been paid to fair use in the context of teaching—particularly in on-line education—relatively little research exists on the problem of fair use in scholarship. This article analyzes reported federal cases on fair use in scholarly contexts, with a particular emphasis on the transformative use doctrine that has become enormously influential in fair use determinations. The article explores insights from this body of case law that may assist future scholars wishing to fairly use copyrighted expression in their scholarship.

"Don’t Sacrifice Fair Use to the Bots"

Elliot Harmon has published "Don't Sacrifice Fair Use to the Bots" in DeepLinks.

Here's an excerpt:

It's easy to see the impact that Content ID has had on the YouTube community—a simple search reveals hundreds of videos about how to avoid a Content ID takedown, with litanies of guidelines about keeping clips to a certain length, adding a colored border to them, or keeping the copyrighted content in a certain corner of the screen.

That's the problem. The beauty of fair use is its inherent flexibility. The law does not provide specific rules about how long of a clip must be for you to use it in your parody or criticism or whether it can take up the full screen. But in a filtered Internet, the algorithms create new restrictions on our online speech. The danger of mandatory filtering is that machines will replace human judgment.

"Bringing Citations and Usage Metrics Together to Make Data Count"

Helena Cousijn et al. have published "Bringing Citations and Usage Metrics Together to Make Data Count" in Data Science Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

Over the last years, many organizations have been working on infrastructure to facilitate sharing and reuse of research data. This means that researchers now have ways of making their data available, but not necessarily incentives to do so. Several Research Data Alliance (RDA) working groups have been working on ways to start measuring activities around research data to provide input for new Data Level Metrics (DLMs). These DLMs are a critical step towards providing researchers with credit for their work. In this paper, we describe the outcomes of the work of the Scholarly Link Exchange (Scholix) working group and the Data Usage Metrics working group. The Scholix working group developed a framework that allows organizations to expose and discover links between articles and datasets, thereby providing an indication of data citations. The Data Usage Metrics group works on a standard for the measurement and display of Data Usage Metrics. Here we explain how publishers and data repositories can contribute to and benefit from these initiatives. Together, these contributions feed into several hubs that enable data repositories to start displaying DLMs. Once these DLMs are available, researchers are in a better position to make their data count and be rewarded for their work.
