The Chemist's Toolkit 10 9 09

  1. 1. Elizabeth Brown<br />Scholarly Communications Officer<br />Binghamton University Libraries<br />The Chemist’s Toolkit for Publishing and Promoting your work on the Internet<br />Publishing and Promoting Chemistry in the Internet Age<br />NERM 2009<br />October 9, 2009<br />
  2. 2. The Chemist’s Toolkit<br />Why should you care?<br />What’s in the toolkit? Information on<br />Open Access Publishing<br />Federal Funding reporting mandate from the NIH Public Access Policy and others.<br />Retaining rights to materials - Author Addenda forms.<br />Copyright and creative commons licensing.<br />The benefits of having a toolkit<br />Maintaining your toolkit: keeping up to date<br />The Future: What to expect<br />
  3. 3. 1. Why Should you care?<br />Publishing models are changing.<br />Copyright law and perceptions of ownership are changing as everyone can access, modify and share information online.<br />Mandates from organizations and funding agencies are requiring researchers to post work online.<br />Technology tools can now allow your peers to rapidly share and distribute information.<br />Emphasis on globalism in student representation, research projects, and foundations.<br />
  4. 4. 2. What’s in the toolkit?<br />Open Access – what is it?<br />A (new) model to publish journal articles and books<br />Also called author charges model, author choice model<br />NIH and Federal Reporting Mandates for Research Output.<br />Retaining rights to materials with Author Addenda.<br /><ul><li> Copyright and creative commons licensing information. </li></li></ul><li>Open Access: Is it all Junk?<br />It depends…<br />Citation metrics are evolving: <br />Impact Factor (Thomson), 1960’s<br />h-index (Hirsch, UC San Diego), 2005<br />Eigenfactor, 2009<br />Eigenfactor™ Score (EF)<br />Article Influence™ Score (AI)<br />PLOS article level metrics, 2009<br />Varies by discipline <br />Change over time<br />
  5. 5. Finding Open Access Journals and Repositories<br />DOAJDirectory of Open Access Journals<br />Open DOAROpen Directory of Open Access Journals<br />Open J Gate Search platform: Open Access Journals<br />ACR Cross Archive Search Service<br />ROAR Registry of Open Access Repositories<br />SHERPA/RoMEO Publisher Archiving , Copyright Policies<br />

  7. 7. Copyright Law and Creative Commons <br />Copyright Advisory Network<br />Creative Commons<br />Copyright Alliance<br />
  8. 8. CC License Types<br />Attribution<br />Lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation.<br />Attribution Share Alike<br />Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial reasons, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to open source software licenses.<br />Attribution No Derivatives<br />Allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, with credit to you.<br />Attribution Non-Commercial<br />Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.<br />Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike<br />Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature.<br />Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives<br />Allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they mention you and link back to you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially. (most restrictive)<br />
  9. 9. Digital Repositories<br />Subject Repositories (Preprint Archives)<br />Mostly Scholarly Articles<br />Contain manuscripts of completed, unpublished articles<br />Assume items are peer reviewed after submission<br />Institutional Repositories = Digital Repositories<br />Scholarly Articles: Journals, Books<br />Other creative output: audio, video, data, paper reports<br />Archival office and non-scholarly output: Newsletters, Reports, Office Files <br />

  11. 11. Retaining Copyright – Author Addenda<br />Did you know signing a standard copyright transfer form for publishing journal articles limits your ability to<br />Post published article on personal or campus websites <br />Post pre-publications of article on personal or campus websites <br />Deposit the article in a open access digital repository <br />Make print or electronic copies for interlibrary loan, reserves, and e-reserves <br />An Author Addendum agreement permits additional publishing posting, and archiving rights to supplement a copyright transfer form.<br />Sample Author Addenda<br />Science Commons – Scholar’s Copyright Addendum Engine<br />SPARC Addendum to Publication Agreement<br />University of Michigan Author’s Addendum<br />More information on Open Access<br />Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook (OASIS) <br />Science Commons <br />The Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC)<br />University of Michigan<br />
