Recommendations of the Ad Hoc Task Force on Open Access to MIT’s Research

Posted in ARL Libraries, Open Access, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on October 18th, 2019

MIT has released "Recommendations of the Ad Hoc Task Force on Open Access to MIT's Research."

Here's an excerpt:

The recommendations include ratifying an Institute-wide set of principles for open science and open scholarship, which affirm MIT's larger commitment to the idea that scholarship and its dissemination should remain in the hands of researchers and their institutions. The MIT Libraries are working with the task force and the Committee on the Library System to develop a framework for negotiations with publishers based on these principles.

Americans and Digital Knowledge

Posted in Digital Culture, Reports and White Papers on October 11th, 2019

The Pew Research Center has released "Americans and Digital Knowledge."

Here's an excerpt:

A new Pew Research Center survey finds that Americans' understanding of technology-related issues varies greatly depending on the topic, term or concept. While a majority of U.S. adults can correctly answer questions about phishing scams or website cookies, other items are more challenging. For example, just 28% of adults can identify an example of two-factor authentication – one of the most important ways experts say people can protect their personal information on sensitive accounts. Additionally, about one-quarter of Americans (24%) know that private browsing only hides browser history from other users of that computer, while roughly half (49%) say they are unsure what private browsing does.

Research Data Rights Management Guide

Posted in Copyright, Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Reports and White Papers on October 10th, 2019

The Australian Data Research Commons has released the "Research Data Rights Management Guide."

Here's an excerpt:

When taken together, data management, copyright and licensing issues relating to data can be complicated. Data is complicated and can take many forms. It can be a seemingly random compilation of numbers, or it could be a complex dataset containing recorded interviews or creative works. Combined data is often unable to be separated into component parts, unlike chapters in a book, so, unlike a book, it is difficult to separate different copyright conditions that might apply to certain sections of a dataset. Apart from legal ownership, other factors such as policy and business requirements, and relationships and norms can impact on data licensing decisions. For example, grant funding agreements may require a certain licence to be applied to research data outputs, or, in some cases, expectations or norms in a particular field of study will impact on licensing decisions.

"Open Access Monographs in the UK: A Data Analysis"

Posted in E-Books, Open Access, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Books on October 9th, 2019

Universities UK has released Open Access Monographs in the UK: A Data Analysis.

Here's an excerpt:

In 2018, fullstopp GmbH was commissioned to carry out an analysis of open access books. Specifically, we were asked to capture the specific challenges and barriers (perceived and real) from a range of stakeholders including (but not limited to): learned societies and subject associations, Pro-Vice-Chancellors (Research), research librarians, publishers (commercial, new university presses and academic-led presses) and funding organisations. In response to these concerns, we were also asked to (where possible) address these challenges by conducting a quantitative analysis of data available from publishers, funding organisations and HEIs (including libraries).

Share–Publish–Store–Preserve. Methodologies, Tools and Challenges for 3D Use in Social Sciences and Humanities

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Emerging Technologies, Reports and White Papers on June 20th, 2019

Anas Alaoui M'Darhri et al. have self-archived "Share–Publish–Store–Preserve. Methodologies, Tools and Challenges for 3D Use in Social Sciences and Humanities."

Here's an excerpt:

Through this White Paper, which gathers contributions from experts of 3D data as well as professionals concerned with the interoperability and sustainability of 3D research data, the PARTHENOS project aims at highlighting some of the current issues they have to face, with possible specific points according to the discipline, and potential practices and methodologies to deal with these issues. During the workshop, several tools to deal with these issues have been introduced and confronted with the participants experiences, this White Paper now intends to go further by also integrating participants feedbacks and suggestions of potential improvements. Therefore, even if the focus is put on specific tools, the main goal is to contribute to the development of standardized good practices related to the sharing, publication, storage and long-term preservation of 3D data.
