MIT Press published its first open-access book in 1995, but leaders of the university press are still trying to figure out the best way to make more scholarly books available to the public for free. This problem is not unique to MIT Press. There is broad consensus among university press directors that open-access monographs are desirable, as they increase access to scholarship. But producing scholarly books is expensive, and institutional and philanthropic funds for open-access initiatives are .  show all text

External (left) and internal (right) collaboration patterns are presented here for Australasian Research Organisations (selected by top 20 ). Researchers are coloured by the field of research that they most commonly publish in, and sized by total number of journal articles that they have published (relative to the network). To create the networks, journal articles published between 2015 and 2018 were analysed.

It’s Open Access Week! This year, publishers, librarians, researchers, and institutions are discussing and organizing events around the theme: “Open for whom?”  Why is that question so important? Well, over the past 20 years, OA research has surged from as few as 523 articles in 2001 (OASPA) to as much as 45% of all new research publications (Piwowar et al). Now that Open Access is a staple of scientific communication, we should be using that momentum to promote greater inclusivity for every di.  show all text

As I’ve noted here previously, there’s a wealth of serial content published in the 20th century that’s in the public domain, but not yet freely available online, often due to uncertainty about its copyright (and the resulting hesitation to digitize it).  Thanks to IMLS-supported work we did at Penn, we’ve produced a complete inventory of serials from the first half of the 20th century that still have active copyright renewals associated with them. And I’ve noted that there was far more serial m.  show all text
