        • ASERL Open Access Week 2014 Webcast "Erin McKiernan: Open Access -- A Researcher s View"


          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/.

          • Open Access Movement: a philosophy, a dance, a practice


            from Columbia CDRS / Added

            161 Plays / / 0 Comments

            A philosophy: Open-access research outputs are online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. A dance: A ballerina makes her performance accessible to a student outside the formal dance performance space, which traditionally features restrictive financial barriers. The student learns a set of ballet movements, and adapts them to her own contemporary style. She passes them onto her own dance class. One member of the class recognizes an opportunity to transform these movements in a new physical therapy situation. A practice: Making work openly accessible allows adaptation, transformation, and attribution (orange accessories not required). Whether we're talking about access to traditional scholarly publications or traditional dance forms, making them available to a broader audience enables the transformation and reuse of the original creation. This short film was produced by Columbia University Libraries/Information Services' Center for Digital Research and Scholarship and Barnard Libraries and Academic Information Services. Open Access Week (20-26 October, 2014), a global event now in its 7th year, promotes open access as a new norm in research and scholarship.

              Dean B. Krafft Director of Information Technology, Library Cornell University Brian Lowe Lead Developer, Library Cornell University The VIVO project is an international community effort to provide linked open data about researchers in the context of their research activities. A key component of this effort is an ontology that serves as a data interchange standard for information about researchers and research across different software platforms, including Harvard Profiles, VIVO, Loki, and SciVal Experts. Through collaboration with ontologists at Oregon Health & Science University, the VIVO ontology has recently been merged with the eagle-i research resources ontology to become VIVO-ISF (Integrated Semantic Framework). This presentation will include examples of the kinds of applications that can be developed to take advantage of the rich semantic data enabled by VIVO-ISF. It will also include descriptions of how VIVO-ISF reuses elements of popular linked data ontologies while remaining based on a philosophically sound foundational ontology, and how it enables linking to subject terminologies used by particular scientific disciplines. The briefing will provide a report on the community effort to test, develop and extend VIVO-ISF for maximum possible benefit to diverse research communities, and it will include discussion about how the process of extending the initial VIVO ontology to VIVO-ISF can serve as a model for further extensions to assist in the description and discovery of research and scholarship across a wide range of academic disciplines. http://www.cni.org/topics/information-access-retrieval/f13-krafft-creating/ Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) Fall 2013 Membership Meeting December 9-10, 2013 Washington, DC http://www.cni.org/mm/fall-2013/

                Wayne Johnston Head, Research Enterprise & Scholarly Communication University of Guelph Mobile Technologies to Support Field Research An agricultural researcher is out in her crops making measurements and taking photographs. A political science researcher is in Ecuador interviewing indigenous people about grass-roots organizations. An entomologist is studying disease resistance of honeybees in Vietnam. Institutions develop services, technologies and infrastructures for researchers, but they tend to be left to their own devices when they are conducting research in the field. What can be done to better support data collection using mobile devices, storing data safely and securely while in transit, syncing data on mobile devices with the infrastructure “back home”? What is the role of next generation electronic laboratory notebooks? How can the data “back home” be made more accessible for consultation while in the field? What are the challenges of relying on mobile devices while working in developing countries or in adverse conditions, and how do these considerations fit within the broader context of research data management, data preservation and data sharing? In particular, what are the specific challenges faced by researchers in different contexts, and can tools and strategies be identified to address those challenges? This video delves into these topics and shares findings. http://www.cni.org/topics/mobile-technologies/f13-johnston-mobile/ Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) Fall 2013 Membership Meeting December 9-10, 2013 Washington, DC http://cni.org/mm/fall-2013/

                  Herbert Van de Sompel Scientist Los Alamos National Laboratory Martin Klein Scientist Los Alamos National Laboratory References in scholarly communication are traditionally to published articles or books. But today’s Web-based scholarly communication increasingly includes links to a wide range of resources that are needed or created in research activity such as software, data sets, websites, presentations, blogs, videos, scientific workflows, and ontologies. These resources often evolve over time, unlike traditional scholarly articles. Their dynamic nature poses a significant challenge for the consistency of the scholarly record: a link may no longer work or the referenced content may change from what it was originally. The Mellon-funded Hiberlink project, a collaboration between the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the University of Edinburgh, explores reference rot along two tracks. A research track aims at characterizing and quantifying reference rot in Web-based scholarly communication using a vast collection of scholarly articles from which links to referenced resources are extracted and an unprecedented collection of Web archive holdings used to determine coverage of the referenced resources. A solutions track aims at identifying and prototyping approaches that can ameliorate the problem, such as pro-active archiving of referenced resources at an appropriate stage in the publication lifecycle and referencing resources with the inclusion of machine-actionable temporal context.

                    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.
