Monografie HSS in open access: modalità e costi di pubblicazione - 0 views

  •  
    "La produzione scientifica accademica nel settore HSS (Humanities and Social Sciences) utilizza principalmente la monografia come strumento di diffusione dei risultati della ricerca. Esistono certamente le riviste, e sono in aumento, ma rappresentano tuttora una minoranza dell'intera produzione editoriale; addirittura spesso i fascicoli sono numeri monografici o atti di convegni che a tutti gli effetti sono da considerarsi come monografie, con tanto di codice ISBN per essere venduti singolarmente."

Claims About Benefits of Open Access to Society (Beyond Academia) - 0 views

  •  
    "his study tries to systematically identify claims about societal benefits of Open Access by analyzing different documents written by Open Access supporters. Three types of documents are used: key declarations and statements in support of Open Access, Open Access policies issued by public funding agencies and journal editorials announcing the adoption of Open Access. Analysis shows these three types emphasize different benefits for Open Access as they address different audience. There is strong support of the idea that Open Access has benefits to different groups of people outside side the university/credentialed research institutes. It is not clear how much evidence is available to support these claims, but identifying them would suggest new stakeholders to involve in the conversation and perhaps also inform the ongoing debate about who should bear the cost of Open Access."

Laying Tracks as the Train Approaches: Innovative Open Access Book Publishing at Heidel... - 0 views

  •  
    "In April 2016, Heidelberg University's newly founded open access publisher heiUP launched the first volume of the new book series Heidelberg Studies in Transculturality. This article reports on the challenges, accomplishments, and setbacks that informed the entire editorial production process, not only of the first volume but also of the series and the publishing enterprise overall. The authors offer insights on crucial issues that any new open access publishing endeavour at an institution might face, namely acquiring manuscripts, designing and building workflows, and collaborating with partners to build an outlet for hosting the finished product. This article also illustrates how the goal of providing a new digital reading experience through an innovative HTML format, in addition to print-on-demand and PDF versions of each manuscript, affected the progress of the entire project. Finally, we report on what it took to deliver results."
