  • Collaboration & Research Sharing Tools What do they do, what do they mean for your career, and who’s responsible? Rebecca Kuglitsch Interdisciplinary Science Librarian CU Boulder 1/14/2013
  • The Facebooks of Science? • ResearchGate • Academia.edu • Mendeley • VIVO – Maybe the LinkedIn of science?
  • Too much social in your network? • Limit emails & manage privacy using ResearchGate: http://screencast.com/t/vX7H8arTVh • Limit emails & manage privacy using Academia.edu: http://screencast.com/t/7XuAfjZYDj2n
  • All of these tools can… • Provide some information about when and how your work is used by others • Help you develop networks of colleagues •Share content
  • Which is right for you? • Academia.edu and/or ResearchGate if you want a profile right now. – Especially good for grad students • Mendeley if you want a collaboration and citation tool, too. • VIVO & our institutional repository if you want the university to do the work – Still under development, but will be very low effort & high impact for faculty users.
  • More about VIVO • Data for your profile is vetted by you when you do your FRPA, so no extra work • Will eventually be a way to highlight your CV & publications • And will connect with our institutional repository and other open access sources
  • VIVO will look something like this: https://scholars.duke.edu/
  • Why use services that share your publications? • Makes your publications more readily available, which – May increase their citation rate – Makes them available to non-academics – Makes them available to scholars from institutions that may not be able to afford the publications
  • But, in December 2013…
  • Avoid this by knowing… • What publications you are allowed to share • How you can legally & ethically share them • And what might happen if you inadvertently share too much
  • Copyright & author’s rights • Copyright is yours at the moment you commit something to writing. • But typically, when you publish in a toll-access journal or write a book, you sign over your copyright to the publisher. • You wrote it. • But you can’t necessarily share it.
  • So, what are your author’s rights? • Check your author’s agreement if you still have it. • Check SHERPA/RoMEO for current default rights. – Watch a screencast demonstrating this • Check with your publisher.
  • Share your work safely • Choose an open access journal (Gold OA) – Library fund to cover fees http://ucblibraries.colorado.edu/scholarlycommunications/oa/oafund.htm • Self-archive (Green OA) – SPARC author addendum http://www.sparc.arl.org/resources/authors/addendum-2007 – Archive whatever you’re allowed to, however you’re allowed – SHERPA/RoMEO will help you figure this out
  • Terminology • Preprints – Typically refers to a pre-peer-review draft • Postprints – Typically refers to a draft that has been through peer review, but is often not the publisher’s PDF
  • What if you post too much? (This is not legal advice!) • Probably nothing. • But you might receive a takedown notice, and need to take your article down. • What if someone else distributes your work? • They might receive a takedown notice, and need to take your article down.
  • Resources • Shelly or Rebecca (Rebecca.kuglitsch@colorado.edu) are happy to help with questions • CU Library Open Access fund http://ucblibraries.colorado.edu/scholarlycommunications/oa/oafu nd.htm • SPARC author addendum http://www.sparc.arl.org/resources/authors/addendum-2007 • SHERPA/RoMEO http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo • How to look up a journal’s policy using SHERPA/RoMEO http://screencast.com/t/QJabx9xaFA • Set your privacy controls and limit email for Academia.edu http://screencast.com/t/7XuAfjZYDj2n • ResearchGate http://screencast.com/t/vX7H8arTVh
