Information and communications technologies continue to transfigure every area of civic and social life. The Information Program focuses on new opportunities and threats that emerge from these developments, fostering public goods, institutions, and experiments that are essential to open society in three areas: increasing public access to knowledge; facilitating civil society communication; protecting civil liberties and the freedom to communicate in the digital environment. The program pays particular attention to the information needs of disadvantaged groups and people in less developed parts of the world. The Program further aims to stimulate experimentation and innovation across the Open Society Foundations network and beyond. Work in areas such as human rights and justice, transparency and accountability, education and youth, or public health is undertaken in partnership with other Open Society programs.
This item is in: Chandos > Information management > Publishing Heather Morrison, University of British Columbia, Canada The most satisfying aspect of Scholarly Communication for Librarians is Morrison's evaluation of the roles librarians can play as scholars writing, archivists managing repositories, acqusitions experts purchasing, authorities on publishing advising faculty, reference librarians answering research questions, and advocates of open access pushing for publishing models that support availability of information over profit for private investors. Digital Library Archives One of the book's strongest chapters examines the economics of scholarly journals using the concept of the cost per article of producing articles in various types of journals.
Welcome to the SPARC Open Access Newsletter, issue #143 March 2, 2010 by Peter Suber Read this issue online http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/newsletter/03-02-10.htm ---------- SOAN is published and sponsored by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC). http://www.arl.org/sparc/ Additional support is provided by Data Conversion Laboratory (DCL), experts in converting research documents to XML. http://www.dclab.com/public_access.asp ---------- Word contest English speakers need a verb that means "to provide OA to". It should be as succinct as "sell" for use in sentences such as, "We sell the print edition but ____ the digital edition." I use "to provide OA to" for lack of anything obviously better.

It was recognised that there was a need for a number of studies to be carried out to support the Electronic Libraries Programme in various areas. There are currently therefore three main strands of supporting studies activity funded by eLib: Evaluative Studies, managed by the Tavistock Institute Preservation Studies, managed by BLRIC UKOLN-managed studies and workshops (resulting from MODELS and elsewhere) Other Supporting Studies are available at the foot of this page. For other JISC and eLib related items, see the ' eLib related Documents ' section, also available as a menu option on the left; and the Other Papers and Reports section. Links to electronic versions of some of the reports are available below; the others are forthcoming.

A list of all of the projects in the eLib programme follows, divided into the original programme areas. It should be stressed that the programme areas give only a general impression of the nature of the work of the project. For example, some projects in the on demand publishing section overlap, in terms of what they are trying to achieve, with some projects in the pre-prints section. The first three areas (Hybrid Libraries, Clumps and Digital Preservation) form eLib Phase 3. These projects started in 1998.
