    • Nothing in Scholarly Communications Makes Sense Except in the Light of Open Access

      Keynote address at the 2nd International PKP Conference on Scholarly Publishing. July 8-10, 2009, Vancouver, Canada. Abstract: This year marks the bicentennial of Darwin's birthday, and the sesquicentennial of the publication of "The Origin of Species". 2009 also marks the 20th anniversary of the invention of the Web by Tim Berners-Lee. These momentous occasions provide a fitting opportunity to reflect on how the conception of scholarly communication and scientific discoveries have evolved from the time of Darwin to the present. Using the publication of "The Origin" and the subsequent acceptance of the theory of evolution as a case study, we look at how new knowledge was formalized from the vast amount of data collected by Darwin, his prodigious private correspondence and personal notebooks, into the public record in the form of books, journal articles, and public lectures. I argue that just as evolution provides an overarching and coherent framework for organizing and making sense of biological diversity, the Web and open access are providing unprecedented opportunities for the framing and reframing of scholarly inquires, and calling into question the nature of authority in the knowledge production process. I will provide examples to show that just as species are mutable, so too are knowledge domains, authority, and disciplinary boundaries in the open and generative web environment.

        28 March 2015: Keynote give at the Association of College and Research Libraries' 2015 Portland Convention. I show how three domains of my work are all animated by one idea. The three domains are "open access," "network neutrality," and so-called "campaign finance reform." The one idea is equality. I also debut a new hair style that I'm calling "the spike." Let me know what you think about either.

          Presented by: Caroline Sutton, Co-Action Publishing & Helle Goldman, Polar Research Submitting work to peer-reviewed journals is a daunting prospect for many young scientists. In this webinar, Caroline Sutton (co-founder of Co-Action Publishing) and Helle Goldman (Chief Editor of the journal Polar Research) demystify the process by explaining what happens to a manuscript after it's submitted, focussing on how submissions are evaluated. This webinar introduces a range of topics connected to journal article publishing, including single-blind versus double-blind review, tips for authors submitting manuscripts, ethical issues (plagiarism, salami slicing, duplicate publication), understanding the fine print in publishers' contracts, open access publishing and how authors benefit from it.

                from ASERL / Added

                ASERL celebrated Open Access Week 2014 with a talk / Q and A session led by Erin McKiernan. Erin McKiernan is a researcher working primarily in experimental and theoretical neuroscience. She received her PhD from the University of Arizona, and now works in Mexico at the National Institute of Public Health. The differences in literature access between the US and Mexico started her on her current path of open access advocate. Erin will discuss her personal experiences with lack of access to scholarly literature, publishing in subscription and OA journals, green self-archiving, open peer review, and altmetrics. Information about Erin's research can be found at http://emckiernan.wordpress.com/. Information about Open Access Week can be found at http://www.openaccessweek.org/.

                  from ASERL / Added

                  ASERL webinar. Dr. Peter Binfield, Publisher and Co-Founder of PeerJ, and previously the Publisher of PLOS ONE, provides an overview of the state of play regarding open access megajournals (journals such as PLOS ONE or PeerJ,which peer-review only for scientific and methodological soundness, and not for ‘impact’ or ‘degree of advance’). He reviews what makes a journal ‘mega’; how many of these titles there are and how they are performing; and he explains how this editorial model appears poised to significantly change the publishing landscape.

                    The Communication, Culture and Technology (CCT) Program presents: "Introduction to Open Access" featuring Dr. Matthew Cockerill, Managing Director and Co-founder of BioMed Central This talk covers the basics of open access, including its benefits for researchers and for society as a whole, and the complementary roles of open access journals and open access archives. It also summarizes recent developments such as campus-wide central funds which support the cost of publishing in open access journals. Lastly, it calls attention to what students, faculty members and administrators can do to help accelerate the adoption of open access publishing models. Brief synopsis: Over the last decade, a revolution has been underway in scholarly publishing. Whereas traditional journals took ownership of the articles they published and sold access to subscribers, open access journals and publishers have adopted a fundamentally different model by treating publishing as a service and making published results universally accessible via the web. Research funders and academic institutions have recognized that the traditional subscription model fails to take full advantage of the web's ability to share information freely. This has led them to implement policies to encourage and in many cases require open access to research results. Speaker Bio: "Matthew Cockerill co-founded BioMed Central, the world's leading open access publisher, in 1999. Prior to BioMed Central, he played a major role in the creation of BioMedNet, a pioneering web site for biologists and medical researchers. He has a PhD in Biochemistry, obtained working under the guidance of Tim Hunt at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, and has a long-standing interest in the use of technology to structure and manage biological and medical knowledge."
