Mind the Gap: A Landscape Analysis of Open Source Publishing Tools and Platforms

Posted in Open Access, Open Source Software, Publishing, Research Libraries, Scholarly Books, Scholarly Journals on August 13th, 2019

John W Maxwell et al. have published Mind the Gap: A Landscape Analysis of Open Source Publishing Tools and Platforms

.

Here's an excerpt:

In 2018 the MIT Press secured a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon foundation to conduct a landscape analysis of open source publishing systems, suggest sustainability models that can be adopted to ensure that these systems fully support research communication and provide durable alternatives to complex and costly proprietary services. John Maxwell at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver conducted the environmental scan and compiled this report.

"Using Static Site Generators for Scholarly Publications and Open Educational Resources"

Posted in Open Access, Open Source Software, Publishing, Research Libraries on November 9th, 2018

Chris Diaz has published "Using Static Site Generators for Scholarly Publications and Open Educational Resources" in the Code4Lib Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

Static site generators build websites from plain-text files. Most are free to use and are available under an open source license [1]. They are often described in comparison to content management system (CMS) software, like WordPress or Drupal. CMS websites use database processes on a web server to dynamically create HTML on demand. Static site generators, however, perform all of the plain-text-to-HTML processing before the files are deployed online. This preprocessing workflow removes the need for high-touch system administration, database installations, server-side processing, and security patching, reducing the need for full-time developers and system administrators for digital publishing services. These advantages make static site hosting, maintenance, and preservation more affordable and sustainable for small teams.

Northwestern University Libraries began using static site generators for our digital publishing service in 2018. We initially licensed the Digital Commons platform from Bepress to support our open access publishing services, but the Elsevier acquisition made us question our reliance on proprietary software and motivated us to consider open source alternatives (Schonfeld 2018). At the same time, interest in open source software for library publishing was growing (Library Publishing Coalition 2018). This article reflects on our use of two open source static site generators for library publishing, including an overview and evaluation of the technologies while focusing on two popular use cases: scholarly publications and open educational resources.

"New Advances in Open Source Infrastructure Support: Accelerated Book Digitization with Editoria"

Posted in Open Source Software, Publishing, Scholarly Books on November 8th, 2018

Clare Dean has published "New Advances in Open Source Infrastructure Support: Accelerated Book Digitization with Editoria" in Insights.

Here's an excerpt:

How can open source infrastructure support a modernized, accelerated book production workflow? The California Digital Library, the University of California Press and the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation collaborated to design a new platform—Editoria—to do exactly this, following a new user-driven design method to result in a simple, people-centric interface. This case study details the main problem facing publishers who are restrained by outdated, print-oriented production platforms, the 'reimagining' exercise and the iterative design process that has resulted in new technology which can be adopted, adapted and integrated by publishers.

"HydraDAM2: Extending Fedora 4 and Hydra for Media Preservation"

Posted in Digital Asset Management Systems, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Digital Repositories, Fedora, Grants, Institutional Repositories, Open Access, Open Source Software, Research Libraries on August 20th, 2018

Jon W. Dunn et al. have self-archived "HydraDAM2: Extending Fedora 4 and Hydra for Media Preservation."

Here's an excerpt:

The overarching goal of the HydraDAM2 project, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation and Access Research and Development program, was to extend the existing HydraDAM digital asset management system, developed with prior NEH support, to be able to serve as a digital preservation repository for time-based media collections implementable at a wide range of institutions using multiple digital storage strategies. The new open source digital preservation repository system developed as part of the project by partners Indiana University (IU) and WGBH, known as Phydo, is based on the Fedora 4.x digital repository system and Samvera (formerly Hydra) repository application development framework and is intended to support storage and long-term preservation management of audio and video files and their accompanying metadata. This white paper describes the work of the HydraDAM2 project to develop the Phydo system, along with future plans.

"Software Curation in Research Libraries: Practice and Promise"

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Open Source Software, Research Libraries on August 2nd, 2018

Alexandra Chassanoff et al. have self-archived "Software Curation in Research Libraries: Practice and Promise."

Here's an excerpt:

Research software plays an increasingly vital role in the scholarly record. Academic research libraries are in the early stages of exploring strategies for curating and preserving research software, aiming to provide long-term access and use. In 2016, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) began offering postdoctoral fellowships in software curation. Four institutions hosted the initial cohort of fellows. This article describes the work activities and research program of the cohort, highlighting the challenges and benefits of doing this exploratory work in research libraries.

"Collecting Inclusive Usage Metrics for Open Access Publications: the HIRMEOS Project"

Posted in Open Access, Open Source Software, Publishing, Scholarly Books, Scholarly Metrics on June 22nd, 2018

Javier Arias has self-archived "Collecting Inclusive Usage Metrics for Open Access Publications: the HIRMEOS Project."

Here's an excerpt:

Open Access has matured for journals, but its uptake in the book market is still delayed, despite the fact that books continue to be the leading publishing format for social sciences and humanities. The 30-months EU-funded project HIRMEOS (High Integration of Research Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure) tackles the main obstacles of the full integration of five important digital platforms supporting open access monographs. The content of participating platforms will be enriched with tools that enable identification, authentication and interoperability (via DOI, ORCID, Fundref), and tools that enrich information and entity extraction (INRIA (N)ERD), the ability to annotate monographs (Hypothes.is), and gather usage and alternative metric data. This paper focuses on the development and implementation of Open Source Metrics Services that enable the collection of OA Metrics and Altmetrics from third-party platforms, and how the architecture of these tools will allow implementation in any external platform, particularly in start-up Open Access publishers.
