Robin des bois ou rogue open access ? Les réseaux sociaux académiques en 2017... - 0 views

  •  
    "L'offensive des éditeurs contre les réseaux sociaux académiques est lancée ! Elle aura mis du temps, mais la voilà. Alors qu'Academia et ResearchGate semblaient, faute de réaction jusque-là, en position de force, la puissante association STM, qui regroupe notamment Elsevier, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis ou encore Wiley, vient en effet d'envoyer à ResearchGate le 15 septembre 2017 un courrier pointant directement du doigt ce qu'elle considère comme les lacunes et les abus du réseau. Mais parce qu'il n'y a pas que les éditeurs qui sont concernés, voici une synthèse 2017 pour comprendre les forces en présence d'une guerre du partage plus totalement larvée désormais."

  •  
    "Η ελεύθερη πρόσβαση σε επιστημονικές δημοσιεύσεις και δεδομένα συμβάλλει καθοριστικά στην επιστημονική επικοινωνία και αποτελεί βασικό προσανατολισμό των ευρωπαϊκών πολιτικών για την έρευνα. Με στόχο την ενίσχυση της προσπάθειας αυτής, το ευρωπαϊκό έργο OPERAS -D (Design) στο οποίο το ΕΚΤ συμμετέχει ως βασικός εταίρος- επιδιώκει την ανάπτυξη, σε επιχειρησιακό και τεχνικό επίπεδο, μιας ευρωπαϊκής υποδομής, δίνοντας ιδιαίτερη έμφαση στις Κοινωνικές και Ανθρωπιστικές Επιστήμες (ΑΚΕ)."

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."

Scholarly book publishing: Its information sources for evaluation in the social science... - 0 views

  •  
    "In the past decade, a number of initiatives have been taken to provide new sources of information on scholarly book publishing. Thomson Reuters (now Clarivate Analytics) has supplemented the Web of Science with a Book Citation Index (BCI), while Elsevier has extended Scopus to include books from a selection of scholarly publishers. More complete metadata on scholarly book publishing can be derived at the national level from non-commercial databases such as Current Research Information System in Norway and the VIRTA (Higher Education Achievement Register, Finland) publication information service, including the Finnish Publication Forum (JUFO) lists (Finland). The Spanish Scholarly Publishers Indicators provides survey-based information on the prestige, specialization profiles from metadata, and manuscript selection processes of national and international publishers that are particularly relevant for the social sciences and humanities (SSH). In the present work, the five information sources mentioned above are compared in a quantitative analysis identifying overlaps and uniqueness as well as differences in the degrees and profiles of coverage. In a second-stage analysis, the geographical origin of the university presses (UPs) is given a particular focus. We find that selection criteria strongly differ, ranging from a set of a priori criteria combined with expert-panel review in the case of commercial databases to in principle comprehensive coverage within a definition in the Nordic countries and an open survey methodology combined with metadata from the book industry database and questionnaires to publishers in Spain. Larger sets of distinct book publishers are found in the non-commercial databases, and greater geographical diversity is observable among the UPs in these information systems. While a more locally oriented set of publishers which are relevant to researchers in the SSH is present in non-commercial databases, the commercial databases seem to focus on high

We've failed: Pirate black open access is trumping green and gold and we must change ou... - 0 views

  •  
    "Key points

    Sci-Hub has made nearly all articles freely available using a black open access model, leaving green and gold models in its dust.
    Why, after 20 years of effort, have green and gold open access not achieved more? Do we need 'tae think again'?
    If human nature is to postpone change for as long as possible, are green and gold open access fundamentally flawed?
    Open and closed publishing models depend on bundle pricing paid by one stakeholder, the others getting a free ride. Is unbundling a fairer model?
    If publishers changed course and unbundled their product, would this open a legal, fairer route to 100% open access and see off the pirates?"

    "On the 22nd August 2017 - some nine months after the platform was first launched - Wellcome Open Research published its 100th article. To mark this milestone, we provide an overview of the type of research that has been published since launch including how it has been used; give an analysis of the datasets underlying these publications; and provide information about the speed of publication and volume of peer review activity. We conclude by looking at how the number of publications on this platform compared with other journals used by Wellcome-funded researchers."

Is the tail wagging the dog? Perversity in academic rewards - 0 views

  •  
    "The academic reward structure focuses heavily on the publication of novel results in high impact journals. This talk considers the problems this narrow focus is creating in research and its dissemination and how these activities go against some of the basic tenets of science itself. It suggests that Open Research offers a way to improve the veracity of scientific claims and then looks at some of the recent examples of a move away from the status quo over the past 18 months."
