    Illinois Digital Scholarship: Preserving and Accessing the Digital Past, Present, and Future

    Get PDF
    Since the University's establishment in 1867, its scholarly output has been issued primarily in print, and the University Library and Archives have been readily able to collect, preserve, and to provide access to that output. Today, technological, economic, political and social forces are buffeting all means of scholarly communication. Scholars, academic institutions and publishers are engaged in debate about the impact of digital scholarship and open access publishing on the promotion and tenure process. The upsurge in digital scholarship affects many aspects of the academic enterprise, including how we record, evaluate, preserve, organize and disseminate scholarly work. The result has left the Library with no ready means by which to archive digitally produced publications, reports, presentations, and learning objects, much of which cannot be adequately represented in print form. In this incredibly fluid environment of digital scholarship, the critical question of how we will collect, preserve, and manage access to this important part of the University scholarly record demands a rational and forward-looking plan - one that includes perspectives from diverse scholarly disciplines, incorporates significant research breakthroughs in information science and computer science, and makes effective projections for future integration within the Library and computing services as a part of the campus infrastructure.Prepared jointly by the University of Illinois Library and CITES at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaig

    Deep Blue is the University of Michigan's permanent, safe, and accessible service for representing our rich intellectual community online. This poster, developed for the Michigan Gastrointestinal Peptide Research Center Annual Retreat in 2012 explains what Deep Blue is, the "director's cut", why to deposit, and how to deposit.http://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/bitstream/2027.42/89608/1/DepositingIntellectualPropertyintoDeepBlue.pd

    The announcement of the closure of Microsoft Academic later this year, may have left the research community largely unmoved, although its demise has significant implications for those working with the service’s substantial database. Here, Aaron Tay, Alberto Martín-Martín, and Sven E. Hug¸ discuss what set Microsoft Academic apart from its competitors and the potential consequences of Microsoft’s withdrawal from scholarly metadata for the development of open research infrastructures

    Women’s Political Representation in Feminist Perspectives: Case Study in the Bone Regency People's Representative Council

    Get PDF
    Women and politics are inseparable but intertwined. This study aims to explore the concept and implementation of women's political representation in Bone Regency by using qualitative methods through interviews with DPRD members, institutions, and the community. Although women's participation in political parties has met the 30% quota according to the KPU, women's representation in the Regional Representative Council (DPRD) of Bone Regency is only 4 out of 45 elected members (2019-2024). The analysis shows that the implementation of women's political representation has not been maximized, influenced by structural, cultural, religious stigma, and economic factors. Local regulations do not fully reflect women's needs and rights. Proposed solutions include political education, broad access for women, increasing awareness and confidence, and building political and social networks. This research shows that a concerted effort is needed from relevant parties to improve structures, overcome cultural and religious stigma, and create economic conditions that support women in actively participating in politics

    A scoping review & taxonomy of epidemiological-macroeconomic models of COVID-19.

    OBJECTIVES: The COVID-19 pandemic placed significant strain on many health systems and economies. Mitigation policies decreased health impacts but had major macroeconomic impact. This paper reviews models combining epidemiological and macroeconomic projections to enable policymakers to consider both macroeconomic and health objectives. METHODS: A scoping review of epidemiological-macroeconomic models of COVID-19 was conducted, covering preprints, working papers and journal publications. We assessed model methodologies, scope, and application to empirical data. RESULTS: We found 80 papers modelling both the epidemiological and macroeconomic outcomes of COVID-19. Model scope is often limited to the impact of lockdown on health and total gross domestic product or aggregate consumption, and to high income countries. Just 14% of models assess disparities or poverty. Most models fall under four categories: compartmental-utility-maximization models, epidemiological models with stylized macroeconomic projections, epidemiological models linked to computable general equilibrium or input-output models, and epi-econ-ABMs. We propose a taxonomy comparing these approaches to guide future model development. CONCLUSIONS: The epidemiological-macroeconomic models of COVID-19 identified have varying complexity and meet different modelling needs. Priorities for future modelling include increasing developing country applications, assessing disparities and poverty, and estimating of long-run impacts. This may require better integration between epidemiologists and economists

    The Faustian Grip of Academic Publishing

    Get PDF
    The journal acquisition budget of libraries is not increasing at the same rate as subscription rates creating the serials' crisis. Many solutions have been proposed including the freely available electronic journal. However, all the solutions suffer the same Faustian Grip - namely that the actors in the academic publishing game have little or no incentive to stop publishing in the current journals. We examine those incentives concluding that even with a better more efficient technology, the actors will not change from the current academic publishing institution, and the serials' crisis will remain.serials crisis journal pricing academic publishing

    Developing New Skills And Expertise To Support Digital Scholarship And Scholarly Communication.

    Get PDF
    Presented at the 74th IFLA General Conference and Council: World Library and Information Congress, Québec, Canada, August 2008: The growth of the Internet and digital technology has caused a dramatic and rapid change in scholarly communication practices, giving rise to new forms of digital scholarship and emerging scholarly publishing models. As libraries respond to—and help promote—these changes, they face a number of new challenges and opportunities. Libraries must develop new specialists with specific skills in digital content production and management. At the same time, they must develop a broad, general understanding, among staff across the entire organization, of how changes in scholarly communication practices affect the library enterprise as a whole. This paper discusses three new areas of activity for libraries supporting digital scholarship and scholarly communication: the development of institutional repositories, electronic publishing services, and scholarly communication outreach and advocacy. The paper will also suggest strategies for developing the capacity to support these activities
