London and New York – A major survey of UK Academics released today examines the attitudes of researchers and practitioners working within higher education and sheds light on their behaviours, including their reliance on digital technologies, the Internet and open access.

UK wide survey of academics spotlights researchers’ reliance on open access

The survey, funded and guided by Jisc and RLUK and conducted on their behalf by the not-for-profit research organisation Ithaka S+R, received 3,498 responses, (a response rate of 7.9%). The survey covered a range of areas from how academics discover and stay abreast of research, to their teaching of undergraduates and from how they choose research topics and publication channels, to their views on learned societies and university libraries and their collections. The overarching themes across these areas are increasing reliance on the Internet for their research and publishing activities, and the strong role that openness is playing in their work.

Facilitating access to free online resources: challenges and opportunities for the library community. A white paper from Taylor & Francis “While we understand that the questions we posed encompassed a world of free-to-view material beyond the traditional book and journal content that is normally associated with the offerings of major scientific, scholarly and professional publishers, we nevertheless are acutely aware that there are key roles that we need to perform and a whole range of new services and products that we should look to develop.

Facilitating access to free online resources: challenges and opportunities for the library community

All key stakeholders in the information and research communication worlds are aware that ‘free’ does not mean cost-free. However, free-to-access and free-to-view, with free content availability in models such as ‘freemium offerings’, are among the paths towards global access that we are all now embracing and experimenting with.” Dr David Green, Global Journals Publishing Director We at Taylor & Francis wanted to conduct a research programme to help explore the issues relating to free content discoverability from the perspective of librarians.

Other logos are also in use. 9-minute video explaining open access Open access (OA) refers to online research outputs that are free of all restrictions on access (e.g. access tolls) and free of many restrictions on use (e.g. certain copyright and license restrictions).[1] Open access can be applied to all forms of published research output, including peer-reviewed and non peer-reviewed academic journal articles, conference papers, theses,[2] book chapters,[1] and monographs.[3] LibGuides on Open Access. Why librarians should be concerned with Open Access. Rapid price escalations in scholarly journal subscription rates have been adversely affecting access to scholarly information.

Why librarians should be concerned with Open Access

Often referred to as the 'serials pricing crisis', the costs of academic journals have been sharply climbing for over two decades now. According to the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the average cost of a serial subscription for ARL member libraries increased by 315% from 1989 to 2003. This increase far exceeds the rise in the Consumer Price Index of 68% for those years. "Fair" open access and the future of scientific publishing. When researchers, funders, universities and libraries started thinking about open access and improving scholarly communication in the late 1990s, the focus was on access.

"Fair" open access and the future of scientific publishing

Indeed, the most immediate challenge was to make it possible to access scientific literature resulting from public funding. Today, an increasing number of funder policies mandate open access, e.g. the EC's mandate on open access to publications in Horizon 2020. This type of policy often indeed focuses on access, is quite open regarding 'how' that access should be reached (green v. gold OA), and therefore sets few extra conditions regarding open access publishing and scholarly communication in general. Criteria for Open Access and publishing – ScienceOpen. In June 2015, the Committee on Publication Ethics, the Directory of Open Access Journals, the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association and the World Association of Medical Editors updated their joint statement, originally published in 2013: the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing [1].

Criteria for Open Access and publishing – ScienceOpen

These principles were to a considerable extent derived from the criteria for the admission of journals into DOAJ that were expanded, updated and put into practice in March 2014 [2]. In addition, 50 Science Europe members issued a statement in April [3] this year on four new guidelines for publishers when providing payments/subsidies for Open Access venues. The first principle states that journals must be listed in DOAJ, Web of Science, Scopus or PubMed. Hypertext. The London Reading Club.

Everything elearning. Learning Objects Overview Learning objects (or RLO - reusable learning object) have been the hype of the elearning industry since 2001. They have been hailed as the future reality of learning...and as idealistic, but unattainable view for education. Separating the hype from reality is still an ongoing activity. Most likely, learning objects will fall somewhere in the middle of all the speculation - between the "next best thing" and "impractical".
