This guide has been written to assist agencies holding Australian government data to safely and effectively share the data they are responsible for by using five data sharing principles.
The MIT Open Access Task Force has released this set of draft recommendations that aim to support and increase the open sharing of MIT publications, data, software, and educational materials.
This paper describes current efforts towards building a framework that extends the functionality of an Open Access Repository by implementing processes to incorporate the ongoing trends in social media into the context of a digital collection.
This volume, comprising eight chapters from experts in a variety of fields, examines the use of three-dimensional (3D) and virtual reality (VR) technologies in research and teaching, and the library’s vital role in supporting this work.
Announced in June 2018, the ANZSRC Review will be carried out jointly by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), Stats NZ, the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
One of the aims of the Review...
This report is a ‘snapshot’ of a study commissioned by the Research for Development Impact (RDI) Network, and undertaken by Coffey International Development. The aim is to provide a point-in-time understanding as to how research findings are communicated and taken up in policy and practice,...
This article argues that while librarians, funders, and negotiators are getting tougher with publishers, offsetting, deals, and Plan S will not deliver OA or solve the serials crisis.
This report contributes to a growing body of work from OCLC to better understand research information management (RIM) practices, including their regional differences, as well as the growing interoperability imperative between siloed sources of data—both internal and external.
This inquiry examined the efficiency, effectiveness and coherency of Australian government funding for research. It focused on federally funded research agencies, their funding mechanisms and university collaborative research.
This paper looks at a number of recent factors which have affected universities. Some trends like the tremendous growth in participation in higher education worldwide and the equally rapid growth in investment in R&D indicate progress and reasons for optimism. Yet the context of higher...
In 2016, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) began offering postdoctoral fellowships in software curation. Four institutions hosted the initial cohort of software curation fellows. This article describes the work activities and research program of the cohort, highlighting the challenges and benefits of...
Figshare's annual report looks at global attitudes towards open data. It includes survey results of researchers and a collection of articles from industry experts.
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...
Making data findable, accessible, interoperable, and re-usable is an important but challenging goal. This paper will describe how Fedora supports FAIR data principles, both in terms of relevant features and community participation in related initiatives.
This paper discusses the use of identifiers in research evaluation—for individuals, their contributions, and the organizations that sponsor them and fund their work.
This draft report summarises the major findings and recommendations from the open science project conducted at the Centre for Innovation, Intellectual Property and Competition (CIIPC), National Law University, Delhi.
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...
This White Paper draws on experiences from OPERAS partners to illustrate researchers’ concerns and to develop a guide with FAQs and solutions to address these issues.
