Posted in E-Prints, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on September 26th, 2019

Knowledge Exchange has released "Accelerating Scholarly Communication: The Transformative Role of Preprints."

Here's an excerpt:

Knowledge Exchange, a group of national organisations from six European countries, commissioned and co-designed this study as part of their work on digital infrastructures to enable open scholarship. This report investigates the preprints landscape: it highlights current thinking in this dynamic area and makes recommendations for future work.

"Peerj Preprints to Stop Accepting New Preprints Sep 30th 2019"

Posted in E-Prints, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on September 4th, 2019

PeerJ has released "Peerj Preprints to Stop Accepting New Preprints Sep 30th 2019."

Here's an excerpt:

We started the PeerJ organization primarily to provide a superior peer-reviewed experience shaped by its Academic Editors. A secondary goal was to bring preprints back to biology. As the community's appetite for preprints has now been cemented, we too want to focus our efforts more fully on our portfolio of peer-reviewed journals and primary mission. While PeerJ Preprints has been successful and pioneering, the academic community is now well-served with other preprint venue options (and new ones are continuously being created to fill necessary areas, many of which are not tied so closely to a specific publication).

"Ten Years of Research on ResearchGate, a Scoping Review Using Google Scholar 2008-2017"

Posted in Digital Repositories, E-Prints, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on August 27th, 2019

Juan Jose Prieto-Gutierrez has self-archived "Ten Years of Research on ResearchGate, a Scoping Review Using Google Scholar 2008-2017."

Here's an excerpt:

Objective. To analyse quantitatively the articles published during 2008_2017 about the academic social networking site ResearchGate. Methods. A scoping bibliometric review of documents retrieved using Google Scholar was conducted, limited to publications that contained the word "ResearchGate" in their title and were published from 2008 to 2017. Results. The search yielded 159 documents, once a preliminary list of 386 documents retrieved from Google Scholar was filtered, which eliminated about 60% of the results that were bibliographic citations and not documents. Papers in journals were the most numerous type of documents (n 73; 46%), followed by conference papers (n 31; 19.5 %). Contributing eight publications, two Spanish scholars (Delgado Lopez-Cozar and Orduna Malea, who were coauthors in each case) were the most prolific authors writing on this topic during the ten-year period. The keywords most used in the documents were "ResearchGate" and "Altmetrics". The publications were cited frequently since 2014 (more than 90% of the total cites fell in that period), and those with more than one author were the most cited ones. The authors of the documents were mainly librarians and information science professionals, who wrote primarily as co-authors with colleagues from their own institutions, mostly published in English. Conclusions. Interest in ResearchGate has grown since 2015, as evident from the number of articles published and the citations they received.

"Evolution of an Institutional Repository: A Case History from Nebraska"

Posted in Digital Repositories, E-Prints, Institutional Repositories, Open Access, Research Libraries, Self-Archiving on August 21st, 2019

Paul Royster has self-archived "Evolution of an Institutional Repository: A Case History from Nebraska."

Here's an excerpt:

The 13-year history of the institutional repository (IR) at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is recounted with emphasis on local conditions, administrative support, recruitment practices, and management philosophy. Practices included offering new services, hosting materials outside the conventional tenure stream, using student employees, and providing user analytics on global dissemination. Acquiring trust of faculty depositors enhanced recruitment and extra-library support. Evolution of policies on open access, copyright, metadata, and third-party vendors are discussed, with statistics illustrating the growth, contents, and outreach of the repository over time. A final section discusses future directions for scholarly communications and IRs in particular.
