Open Access and the Graduate Thesis Author - June 6, 2017

Citation: Jill Cirasella & Polly Thistlethwaite, (2017). "Open Access and the Graduate Author: A Dissertation Anxiety Manual," in Open Access and the Future of Scholarly Communication: Implementation, eds. K. L. Smith & K. A. Dickson (Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield), p. 203-224.

Abstract: The process of completing a dissertation is stressful—deadlines are scary, editing is hard, formatting is tricky, and defending is terrifying. (And, of course, postgraduate employment is often uncertain.) Now that dissertations are deposited and distributed electronically, students must perform yet another anxiety-inducing task: deciding whether they want to make their dissertations immediately open access (OA) or, at universities that require OA, coming to terms with openness. For some students, mostly in the humanities and some of the social sciences, who hope to transform their dissertations into books, OA has become a bogeyman, a supposed saboteur of book contracts and destroyer of careers.

This chapter examines the various access-related anxieties that plague graduate students. It is a kind of diagnostic and statistical manual of dissertation anxieties—a "Dissertation Anxiety Manual," if you will—describing anxieties surrounding book contracts, book sales, plagiarism, juvenilia, the ambiguity of the term online, and changes in scholarly research and production.

De Gruyter sponsors Directory of Open Access Books - April 13, 2017

De Gruyter sponsors DOAB
 

We are very pleased to announce that De Gruyter has decided to become a sponsor of the Directory of Open Access Books. With this sponsorship, De Gruyter celebrates the launch of the De Gruyter Open Access Book Library on degruyter.com. The Open Access Book Library is intended to draw attention to the growing number – and growing importance – of open access books. Of the almost 900 titles in the Library, approximately half are De Gruyter titles. The other half is supplied by publishing partners, but available on degruyter.com. This makes De Gruyter the largest independent publisher of original content open access books in the humanities.

“In 2005, De Gruyter was one of the first traditional publishers to offer open access books, we have continued to marry our centuries-old expertise in book publishing with our ability to provide open access models to the research and scholarly community,” said Dr. Anke Beck, Managing Director, De Gruyter. “As a part of the run up to celebrating 1000 titles later this year, we are very pleased to confirm our commitment to making open access book publishing a success by sponsoring DOAB.”

We are happy to say that DOAB is doing very well. Earlier this month, DOAB passed the milestone of 6000 listed OA books. In 2016 the list of OA books grew with over fifty percent for the third consecutive year, and DOAB continues to top the list of referral sites. Starting this year, DOAB is taking part in a European Horizon 2020 project (HIRMEOS), to develop a certification service for OA book publishers. The project will also add new features to DOAB: listing OA chapters of books and automated uploading of OA titles by publishers.

POST: The Realities of Research Data Management

In a post on hangingtogether.org, Brian Lavoie (OCLC) announces the release of “A Tour of the Research Data Management (RDM) Service Space”, the first report in a series entitled “The Realities of Research Data Management” produced by OCLC Research. The series “explores the context and choices research universities face in building or acquiring RDM capacity,” and this first installment serves as an introduction.

RDM is both an opportunity and a challenge for many research universities. But research data management is not a discrete, well-defined service, and RDM solutions are not of the one-size-fits-all variety. Moving beyond recognition of RDM’s importance requires facing the realities of research data management. Each institution must shape its local RDM service offering by navigating several key inflection points: deciding to act, deciding what to do, and deciding how to do it. Future reports in this series will examine these decisions in the context of the choices made by the case study partners.

The additional reports in the series will be cover Scoping the Local RDM Service Offering, Understanding the Institutional Incentives for RDM Services, and Sourcing and Scaling RDM Services, and will be released on the OCLC Research website.
