This publication provides librarians, archivists, curators, and others who work to preserve software, with a tool to guide their reasoning about when and how to employ fair use—the legal doctrine that allows many value-added uses of copyrighted materials—in the most common situations they currently face.
This research found that university researchers cite only a fraction of journals purchased by their libraries, that this fraction is decreasing, and that the cost per cited journal has increased. These findings reveal how academic publishers use various strategies to increase sales and profits in the digital era, often at the expense of university and scientific stakeholders.
Health data which is routinely collected during the course of patient care, is a valuable resource to the advancement of research and can be an effective and efficient alternative to performing large-scale and costly clinical studies. Together with the growing capabilities of...

This article examines what it might mean to treat digitized and born digital collections as data, rather than simple surrogates of physical objects or static representations of digital experience.
While a small, but growing number of institutions offer access to born-digital collections, there is scant literature documenting researcher interaction with these materials. This paper addresses this gap through documenting and analyzing researcher interactions to portions of born-digital collections at New York University (NYU) Libraries....
This publication is the introductory report for the Knowledge Exchange Working Group on Preprints.
"Soft" infrastructure includes the services, policies or practices that keep academic research working and open. Without a funded, coordinated national approach the private sector may take control, writes Virginia Barbour.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) raises the standard required of researchers handling personal data. For researchers, it is still essential to be aware of and follow the best practices in their field or discipline. In addition, researchers now need to also identify the appropriate legal...
Greenhouse Studios (GS) is a scholarly communications research laboratory dedicated to using collaborative models and design principles in the creation of scholarly works.
The UK open access (OA) policy landscape simultaneously preferences Gold publishing models (Finch Report, RCUK, COAF) and Green OA through repository usage (HEFCE), creating the possibility of confusion and duplication of effort for academics and support staff. Alongside these policy developments, there has been an...
