Open Data developments in Asia | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog - 1 views

  •  
    This blog about Open Data Developments in Asia analyses the recent state of Open Data adopted in Asia and highlights some of the 11 Asian countries participants that attended the Open Knowledge Conference in Geneva in 2012. Of the 11 countries that attended the conference, the author of the post focuses on the East Asian and Pacific countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar and discusses their state and role in Openness. The author does a good job at providing statistics of the different countries in terms of the Worldbank Knowledge Economy Index (KEI), which analyzes the economic rankings of countries. The author then compares economic rank to that of openness, stating that countries low on the economic rank contribute little to no open data within their own countries or externally to other countries. Next, the author talks about the overall internet penetration in Asia as being only 27.5 percent and in that statistic, there is still a wide gap between North and South East Asia in terms of internet use and information distribution and acquisition from citizens and others. Moreover, the author continues to compare how many social, economical, political and cultural influence information distribution, contribution and acquisition in Asia countries. Openness is growing in the more developed Asian countries, but openness is limited, or even nonexistent, in developing (authoritative) countries. After reading this article, I've had a greater understanding of the current state of Open Data in Asia an the influences that contribute to enabling Openness. What I expected from the blog post or something that would've made the post even better could be some examples or projects of Openness or Open Data in Asia.

    Many interesting charts and data of the global internet use, access, and contributions

    Cool!! It's so valuable to see behind the scenes of a lot of the open (or closed) tools we use. These images, maps, and infographics are really neat and use a lot of data that probably gets forgotten about in a lot of discussions. Thanks for posting!
  •  
    Atlas, publications, charts and tables of global information and internet geographies and impacts on information access, information production and information distribution, done over a four year period by Oxford Information Institute. Findings, data, and publication will be published in Open Access formats and platforms. The website is simple but contains lots of information relevant to the topics in Stanford. There are links to external related publications about information geography, access, distribution and production. Very good website. Some limitations include: bias from the two developers and producers as well as institution itself, unknown (not identified) contributors and sponsors.
  •  
    A very valuable collection demonstrating how economic, political, cultural and linguistic ties impact the flow of knowledge is and information. Of course, such charts do little to explain, why this happens and where a more even distribution of knowledge is desirable. Also, the data that lies behind the visualisations is not always open. Especially vauable are the links to the data collections that are accessible.

additional revenue streams for newspapers - 0 views

  •  
    While not exactly on topic, and newspapers are not generally considered Scholarly publishers, they do engage with the public, and frequently act as a liaison between journals/researchers and the public. In the past ten years or so, people have gotten used to accessing, for free, newspapers and television reports as a way to inform themselves. While this is good for the individual, it is not so good for the publisher. Many traditional news outlets have been struggling to find a way to generate revenue in a way that neither smacks of consumerism, nor excludes the average citizen from participating. IN the UK, the liberal-leaning newspaper The Guardian has begun selling 'memberships', and hosting events ranging from lectures to classes on things as diverse as photography and creative writing.

    Different point of view on OA and thoughts about why the model may not work. I'm not entirely agree with everything written in the article (especially with "simplification" of public needs) but it was interesting to read as it was something different in light of positive attitude (mine as well) towards OA.

German National Library of Economics - 3 views

  •  
    ZBW Website German National Library of Economics - Leibniz Information Centre for Economics ZBW is the largest library for literature in economics world-wide. This is one great example of "open access" whereby access for data is openly made available to users nationally and internationally. ZBW was is recently honoured by the German Library Association as the 2014 Library of the Year for its "a radically modern library whose customer- and innovation-oriented approach is exemplary for other libraries". Through its Econbiz Open project, ZBW was able to partner and create participatory culture among its partner countries.

    I believe that one of the best ways to look for truthful information happens through the specialized free access library Julia.

Open Access (or, why I love the internet) - 10 views

  •  
    The wonderful blog, Hack Library School, has recently posted a piece on open access publishing. This piece is a great overview, which covers many of the basic concepts covered in Module 6. The article discusses what open access is (and what it isn't) and some of the biggest discussion points on the issue today. It's a great overview and well worth the read if you want an overview or a refresher on the topic!

    Thanks for sharing this link. It includes a clear breakdown of what gold and green Open Access are and identifies some of the challenges of gold OA.
  •  
    Well, its a worth reading article. We can say about open access that its a peer-reviewed work that's published in full on the internet and available at no cost to readers and that helps the whole society. OA is today's need.
  •  
    Great link you shared, shows very well on the concepts covered in module 6 and shows an overview of assunto.Engloba and greatly enriches our knowledge.
  •  
    Excelent! thanks for the resource!
  •  
    Yes thank you for passing it on. As a librarian I'm happy to know more of us are out there and participating in the conversation.
  •  
    The internet is pretty awesome guys. Privacy attacks and trolls aside, no other tool humans have ever created can match its potential for information transfer. Sure, I often use it to watch cat videos and buy clothing I don't need, but it also supports one of the biggest developments in modern librarianship and one of...

    This blog covers a lot of relevant concepts related to OA, but a finer point need to be clarified. Regarding Google Scholar, not everything retrieved from GS is OA. GS is a web crowler, it crows wherever it is allowed, including references and citations to articles behind paywalls. On the other hand, many librarians are working to make their paid journals subscriptions available to their faculty and students via Google Scholar. So when faculty/students are on their universities' network, they can search GS, find articles from journals. If their library subscribes to that journal, there is a good chance a link to the full text will be available.

    I agree with the point that "findability" for green OA articles is a current problem. We need a PubMed or Web of Science for green OA articles!

    DOAJ is an online directory that indexes and provides access to quality open access, peer-reviewed journals. DOAJ es un directorio de revistas de acceso abierto, que tiene filtros por lenguaje, rama, país de publicación, año de publicación, y lo que me pareció más interesante, el tipo de licencia.

    Directory of Open Access Journals

    Es un recurso muy interesante, aunque personalmente suelo utilizar el ISI Web of Science, que considero más completo y relevante. Pero todos estos repositorios facilitan localizar adecuadamente la información sobre un autor, trabajo concreto o revista, y permite elegir, además, adecuadamente, la revista a la que mandar un trabajo de investigación que haya desarrollado uno mismo simplemente visitando tal directorio y viendo los topics que tiene cada una de las revistas.

    "Open access seems to be known as much for inadequate and exploitative publishing practices as for any increase in access". This is the bigges problem with publishing practice. Julia

    I like the directory as it will allow access to the type of information that the world needs at no cost at all. Well done!
