The Social Contract

OA eBooks
                     • Many disciplines (e.g. Humanities) are yet to
                       fully benefit from electronic OA publishing
                       because half of their output is in book form
                     • Many scholarly monographs are overpriced
                       and poorly distributed
                     • “At this price, people will only read the
                       reviews”
                     • Research libraries are increasingly looking to
                       save money
                     • One e copy for multiple students
                     • No shelf space requirements
                     • No lending administration overhead

Metajournals as incentives




      brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com   www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
Data journals
               • Provide a way of finding data scattered in
                 many siloed locations
               • Are a low-barrier, familiar way to
                 incentivise data sharing




     brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com   www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
What is a data paper?
                        A data paper…
                        • … describes the methodology with which
                           a dataset was created.
                        • … describes the dataset itself.
                        • … details the reuse potential of the data.
                        • … is often authored by a data scientist.
                        • … is citable, enabling reuse to be tracked.
                        A data paper is not…
                        • … a research paper. A data paper only
                           describes a dataset. But it will reference
                           research papers that are based on the data.
                        • … simply replication of the information in a
                           data repository.
