JISC Core- Aggregating open access content from repositories and journals worldwide

CORE (COnnecting REpositories) is an aggregation of open access content from UK and worldwide repositories and open access journals. It provides a range of services including discovery, analytics, and text mining access.

Because CORE harvests from virtually all UK and worldwide repositories, it gathers all the data needed by librarians and research managers to provide business intelligence functions. This can support quality management and compliance reporting.

CORE aggregates all open access content distributed across different repository systems worldwide, enriches this content and provides access through a range of projects.

The aggregated content includes metadata (24m records) and open access research outputs (about 1.8m full text items) from more than 667 repositories, from 10,351 journals in the UK and worldwide (currently 70 countries).

Think. Check. Attend.

Think. Check. Attend. is an initiative that aims to guide and assist researchers and scholars to judge the legitimacy and academic credentials of conferences in order to help them decide whether to or not attend the same. Nowadays, the scholarly community faces an increasing number of invitations to present at or attend conferences. Some of these are respectable, academic events, while others are misleading, exaggerated or even fake. Think. Check. Attend. provides guidelines that help researchers to differentiate between an authentic conference and the one they should avoid. In this initiative, we help scholars to recognise the characteristics of a trusted conference to attend and submit their abstracts through a number of steps and a check list. Simply follow these steps and you will rest assured that you attend only the most appropriate conferences.

Open Access Initiatives and Networking in the Global South – Kuchma, Iryna

This short study highlights the impact of open access in the Global South. Featuring collaborative open access initiatives in Algeria, Kenya, Myanmar, Nigeria, Nepal, Palestine, Tanzania, Uganda and Latin American countries, it showcases success and describes the challenges that we still face. It also questions a notion of a journal article – perhaps already becoming obsolete – and discusses the growing preprints initiatives to speed up the availability of research results. The value of regional journal and repository networks enhancing open access content in Europe and Latin America is also discussed as well as the impact human networks make in the Global South.

Open access, power, and privilege – Shea Swauger

A response to “What I learned from predatory publishing”

In June 2017, Jeffrey Beall published an opinion piece in Biochemia Medica titled “What I Learned from Predatory Publishers.”1 While there are several elements of this publication that I find inaccurate or problematic, I’m choosing four specific themes within his piece to critique. In the interest of full disclosure, I am Jeffrey Beall’s direct supervisor at the University of Colorado-Denver’s Auraria Library and have been since I began working there in July 2015.
