    Definition Scholarly communication is the system through which research and

    other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. -2003 ACRL statement
  8. 16.

    Definition Digital scholarship is the use of digital evidence, methods

    of inquiry, research, publication and preservation to achieve scholarly and research goals. Digital scholarship can encompass both scholarly communication using digital media and research on digital media. -Wikipedia

    Open Access Publishing •  Making information freely available online • 

    Usually allows users to do more with the content than provided by copyright law alone •  Any published material could be made “open access” if the author and publisher arrange for it •  They could agree to make it available in a repository (green) or within a published journal itself (gold) •  Publisher policies vary widely
  10. 29.

    Open Access Policies •  Establish a “default” set of access

    and use rights the institution retains unless a publisher arranges otherwise with the author •  Some of these policies mandate authors provide a copy of the appropriate version of their article to the institutional repository •  These policies do not limit the places authors can choose to publish
  11. 30.

    Public Access Requirements •  Many organizations or agencies that fund

    research require the results of the research to be made available to the public. •  Each funding agency sets its own details about what needs to be publicly available, when, and how •  Requirements and infrastructure for making articles publicly available are farther along than the requirements related to data, but data is coming
  12. 31.

    Current Action on Campus •  Campus support for compliance with

    funder public access requirements •  Open Access Policy outreach and education •  Open Educational Resources Initiative •  Increasing support for collecting and adding resources to Minds@UW
  13. 33.

    research is increasingly digital. •  Multi-institutional •  Grant-funded •  Shared

    infrastructure •  Computationally driven Image courtesy of #wocintechchat

    •  Automated information extraction (aka text and data mining) •  Social network analysis •  Geospatial mapping
  15. 37.

    Digital Scholarship in Action STEM (“eScience”) •  Data science/analytics • 

    Visualization •  High throughput computing •  Electronic data collection (ELNs)

    share information and influence decisions: •  Timeline •  Funding •  Roles and responsibilities •  Communication and sharing •  Publication •  Preservation
  17. 42.

    Digital Project Planning A direct route to library services and

    specialists! •  Discipline-specific •  Copyright assistance •  Openness (workflows, articles, data) •  Data management •  Text or data mining •  Funder compliance •  Preservation

    Research Data Management What is research data? “The recorded factual

    information commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings.” INCLUDES: code, figures, statistics, interviews, transcripts EXCLUDES: preliminary analyses, drafts of papers, plans for further research, communication + peer reviews, physical samples - OMB Circular, White House

    and Re-use Data Management and Organization Data Conversion and Interoperability Data Preservation Data Visualization and Representation Databases and Data Formats Discovery and Acquisition Ethics and Attribution Metadata and Data Description Data Quality and Documentation Cultures of Practice Carlson, Jake, and Lisa Johnston.

    Formats •  Naming •  Folder structure •  Description •  Collaboration •  Storage •  Sharing •  Publication
  21. 49.

    What to Expect •  Federal funding agencies + RDM • 

    The repository landscape •  Data horror stories •  RDM best practices
  22. 50.

    Open Research + Reproducibility Defining “Open” “Open means anyone can

    freely access, use, modify, and share for any purpose (subject, at most, to requirements that preserve provenance and openness).” -The Open Definition (http://opendefinition.org/) CAVEAT: Some data isn’t meant to be shared openly (human subjects, national security, etc.)
  23. 51.

    Barriers to Openness •  Fear of getting scooped •  Mistakes

    / misinterpretation of the data •  Transition to new ways of sharing research •  Few academic incentives yet
  24. 53.
  25. 54.

    What to Expect •  Openness in action •  Benefits and

    challenges of open research •  Incorporating open research tools and techniques
