Finding Joy in Open Access: Reflections from the Humanities Commons Team

Discussion published by Emily Joan Elliott on Monday, October 31, 2022

A crosspost on Feeding the Elephant: A Forum for Scholarly Communications from Platypus: The blog of the Humanities Commons Team.

Wiley plans to renegotiate its publishing agreements with scholarly societies

Friends:

The Scholarly Kitchen blog has a post today by antela Cochran entitled "The Beginning of the End of Publisher-Society Partner Contracts" 

The post discusses an initiative by the large publisher Wiley to change the terms that it offers to scholarly societies for publishing their journals.  The change will shift the financial risk further towards the societies. 

Below is an excerpt and a link to the full article:

The journal Science to increase public access to its articles

 
Friends:
 
On October 11, 2022, Nature published a post discussing the recent announcement by Science that authors will now be permitted to publish preprints of their articles online without being required to pay article processing charges (APCs). 
 
This follows the announcement by the Biden administration that federally-funded, peer-feviewed research must be made available in an agency-approved public repository without delay by 2026.

Sharing a Call for Study Participants: Research Literature Acquisition on Sci-Hub, Libgen, etc

This call aims to recruit for a dissertation research study about accessing selected sources of research literature, scholars who have used Sci-Hub, Library Genesis (LibGen), Reddit/Scholar, or Twitter (#ICanHazPDF). The dissertation could identify issues that independent scholars without academic affiliations have with accessing literature with potential impact to make it easier to obtain resources in the future.
