An interview with Impactstory’s Jason Priem about their new tool, Get The Research.
The HathiTrust Research Center has recently announced a significant expansion of its services. Rick Anderson discusses the changes with Executive Director Mike Furlough and staff.
Last week’s STM news raises questions about whether scholarly publishers are prepared to radically improve content distribution. Is content syndication the end game?
Now, of course copyright owners of “free” resources have the right to set the terms of access. They can put up a datawall that demands the exchange of personal information (and thus enables data tracking, reporting, and maybe even aggregation with other datasets) for the otherwise free article. I wonder how far we will see this extend.
Abigail Wickes and Erica Leeman discuss early career experiences, the value of an MLIS degree across the industry, and the need for metadata expertise in publishing.
Scholars are interested in discovering libraries and archives as institutional producers of knowledge, not only using them as providers of resources.
We have seen a surge in scientifically minded search engines and browser extensions that aim to supercharge content discovery — have they cracked the code in mainstream search and retrieval of scholarly literature?
Missing: data citations. Last seen hanging around with datasets in lots of research articles, but never arrived at Crossref after typesetting. Description: short, with straight black forward slashes and lots of digits. Often wears a DOI hoodie.
Instead of the rich and seamless digital library for scholarship that they need, researchers today encounter archipelagos of content bridged by infrastructure that is insufficient and often outdated. Researchers need a supercontinent. Will it be Elsevier, Digital Science, Clarivate, ResearchGate, or someone else? And what does this mean for other publishers?
How can secrecy and openness most productively coexist when it comes to the intellectual property of universities and their research faculty? Some thoughts from the new vice president for technology and venture commercialization at a Tier 1 research university.
Today, Clarivate is announcing that it recently acquired Kopernio, a startup launched last year to streamline access to scholarly content.
Researchers say journal article recommendations are useful. Do these publisher platform features influence user behavior? How might they increase discovery and serendipity in the researcher’s workflow? A series of studies provide new evidence of increased reader engagement.
With so much going on around us, staying informed and sifting through information is more critical than it’s ever been. See how the Chefs stay informed about scholarly communication.
Outreach was the word of the moment at PIDapalooza 2018. So how can we improve persistent identifier adoption and usage by researchers?
RA21 aims to promote a modern, standards-based access management system that preserves patron privacy & control. It is important to dispel some myths about RA21 so we can move on from the outdated world of IP-authentication.
