Open access requirements will erode academic freedom by catalysing intensive forms of institutional managerialism In response to last week’s piece on how open access will enhance academic freedom, Kyle Grayson responds by outlining three key reasons why open access will directly–and indirectly–erode academic freedom in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. He argues that gold access will catalyse more intensive forms of managerialism based on crude metrics and that the scope and size of research projects are equally at risk. In light of the formalisation of core aspects of the open access regime by the Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE) on 1 April 2013, there was an interesting piece by Curt Rice on the LSE Impact blog last week. In fairness, Rice is based in Norway at the University of Tromsø. Academic Freedom I take the definition of academic freedom offered by the UCU as my starting reference point. Open Access and Three Threats to Academic Freedom Unfortunately, there are three ways that open access in the UK will threaten academic freedom in the arts, humanities, and social sciences:

Open Access Journals Open Access journals are the other strand of the move towards open access to research articles. The processes of peer-review and editorial functions are left entirely unchanged: the only difference is the stage at which funds are put into the publication process: and since an entire intermediate "middleman" stage is left out, its cheaper, too.

Blogs: BMJ Open A debilitating syndrome that causes an excessively rapid heartbeat on standing up, predominantly affects young well educated women, and blights their lives, because it is so poorly understood and inconsistently treated, reveals a small study published in the online journal BMJ Open. Postural tachycardia syndrome, or PoTS for short, is a by-product of orthostatic intolerance – a disorder of the autonomic nervous system in which the circulatory and nervous system responses needed to compensate for the stress put on the body on standing upright, don’t work properly. PoTS is associated with an excessively rapid heartbeat, or tachycardia. The impact of the syndrome has been likened to the level of disability associated with serious and debilitating long term conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure. In the US, PoTS is thought to affect around 170 per 100,000 of the population, one in four of whom is disabled and unable to work.

Budapest Open Access Initiative BASE - Bielefeld Academic Search Engine | About BASE BASE is one of the world's most voluminous search engines especially for academic open access web resources. BASE is operated by Bielefeld University Library. As the open access movement grows and prospers, more and more repository servers come into being which use the "Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting" (OAI-PMH) for providing their contents. BASE collects, normalises, and indexes these data. BASE provides more than 80 million documents from more than 4,000 sources. BASE is a registered OAI service provider and contributed to the European project "Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research" (DRIVER). In comparison to commercial search engines, BASE is charcterised by the following features: Start searching BASE

Scholarly Communication for Librarians 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. The book is easy to read and most importantly provides practical coverage of a topic that is of interest to librarians and other information professionals.
