Open Access that Isn’t

Filed under: Digital Resources — Tags: , , , — pam @ 12:00 pm

“Predatory publishers are corrupting open access,” a World View column by Jeffrey Beall that appeared in the September 12th issue of Nature, says “journals that exploit the author-pays model damage scholarly publishing and promote unethical behaviour by scientists.” Beall, a librarian at the University of Colorado at Denver, has compiled Beall’s List of Predatory, Open-Access Publishers, 2012 ed., which describes those which should be avoided.

Open Access Week

Filed under: News — Tags: , , — pam @ 12:59 pm

October 22-28 is Open Access Week.

Open Access Week, a global event now entering its sixth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

“Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.

Open Access (OA) has the potential to maximize research investments, increase the exposure and use of published research, facilitate the ability to conduct research across available literature, and enhance the overall advancement of scholarship. Research funding agencies, academic institutions, researchers and scientists, teachers, students, and members of the general public are supporting a move towards Open Access in increasing numbers every year.

Join the discussion!

Transition

Filed under: Digital Resources — Tags: , , — pam @ 1:06 pm

The College is currently redesigning the web site, but is not ready to go live with a new site just yet. In the Libraries, we must update our site frequently to include access changes to licensed content and more. As a result, some of the content on this web site is out-of-date now.  Rather than keep trying to fix the old site, in this transitional time, the best way to get to our most current material is to go directly to our Research by Subject page. It is our “home page” until the new site launch.
