2022 Open Access Week – UCSD is OPEN FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE!

International OA Week https://www.openaccessweek.org/theme/en

Happy Open Access Week 2022! This week our plan is to highlight UC San Diego research, scholarship, and art related to the theme, “Open for Climate Justice.” During #OAWeek, we’ll tweet about publications authored by a diverse range of authors and initiatives happening on our campus. At #UCSD, we have entire centers devoted to bringing about climate justice with everyone from undergraduates, faculty, and community partners working to “make our world a better place.”

The UC San Diego Center for Global Justice has devoted a research cluster to #climatejustice http://gjustice.ucsd.edu/climate-justice/. Check the CFP for an #OA Lecture Video & Digital #OATextbook Chapter to contribute to the 10 UC campus course, Bending the Curve & @eScholarship #OER on climate science, “Bending the Curve: Climate Change Solutions” 

The #UCSD Center for Global Justice’s founding director is our own political science professor, Fonna Forman. Dr. Forman has written chapters for the OER as well as participated in our #OAW event last year as part of a faculty and student panel on equitable & affordable course materials.

The Center on Global Justice is committed to research, advocacy and consultation on climate disruption and climate justice, working at top-down and bottom-up scales simultaneously to slow the warming, as well as to help vulnerable communities adapt to a warming climate.  New technologies, policies and financial tools must be paired with new social strategies, to produce meaningful change.

Through the UCSD Community Stations, we are committed to advancing new methods of climate education and participatory climate action in close partnership with underserved communities across the San Diego-Tijuana border region.

WORKSHOP SERIES : GLOBAL EQUITY IN OPEN ACCESS PUBLISHING

OA2020 WORKSHOP SERIES ON PRACTICAL MECHANISMS AND ACTION PLANS TO REMOVE BARRIERS FOR READERS AND AUTHORS

Organizers of the workshop series.

Link to webpage and registration describing the event – registration deadline is 07 October 2022 but recording will be posted

Workshop 1 Viewpoints and contributions from Africa and Europe

This workshop will be an opportunity for those who fund and produce research, including scientists and scholars, research administrators, libraries and library consortia, university leadership, science councils and grant funders, and ministries of research and education, to better understand the current tensions in the scholarly communication landscape and explore immediate and long-term actions they each can take to ensure open access publishing is delivered in accordance with these principles:

  • Fees associated with open access publishing services should be fair, reasonable, transparent, and globally equitable;
  • Scholarly communication is part of the research process and, as such, costs for open access publishing services should ultimately be borne by research funders and institutions;
  • Spending on scientific publishing should enable global open access by both readers and authors.

The first in a global relay, this workshop will be held in European and African time zones. The outcomes will be integrated with those of two additional and incremental workshops in early 2023 featuring viewpoints and contributions from the Asia-Pacific region and the Americas, with the aim of defining and promoting global practices and action lines in pursuit of the principles above.

The suggestions and outcomes of all three workshops in the series will be openly disseminated here and will be further discussed with other stakeholders, including scholarly publishers, in a second phase of activity from mid-2023.

Join UC San Diego Scholarly Communications Librarian Allegra Swift and Annelise Sklar, the Assistant Director of the Scholarship Tools and Methods Program and Librarian for Political Science, Law & Society, International Studies, and International Government Information as they present “Identifying Reputable OA Journals,” a 90-minute hands-on workshop.  This workshop is the first in a two-part series featuring the Author Carpentry curriculum founded at Caltech.

Date: Wednesday, June 22, 2022 There are two times available and registration is necessary.

Time: 7:00am – 8:30am PST Registration and 3:00pm – 4:30pm PST Registration

Author Carpentry is a researcher-to-researcher training and outreach program in open authoring and publishing, scholarly identity and reputation, and research impact. Inspired by the Modern Scientific Authoring lesson proposed by Software Carpentry founder Greg Wilson, Author Carpentry was envisioned by founder Gail Peretsman-Clement to complement and extend the research pipelines covered in Software and Data Carpentry. Author Carpentry picks up the “last mile” of the research process: writing, reporting, review, dissemination and licensing, impact measurement, and establishing author identity and reputation. This section will focus on dissemination, deception, and diversity through a publishing literacy lens. Please contact Allegra or Annelise with any questions.

This workshop is sponsored by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Science & Technology Libraries Section.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

For our Fall 2021 issue, we are planning a special cluster on the ongoing pandemic and the effects it has had on all of us. Inspired by other projects that assemble responses to the current COVID-19 pandemic (see hereherehere, and here), we have wondered, How will we in the community of medievalists remember the impact of this global crisis? How have we reacted and responded as teachers? As scholars? In order to create a collective assembly of voices and experiences, we seek short contributions (ca. 1000-1500w) that consider the writers’ pandemic experiences in the education and scholarly contexts where they work, learn and create. Contributions will appear in the Fall 2021 issue of New Chaucer Studies: Pedagogy and Profession and in the NCS: Pedagogy and Profession Newsletter.

For consideration in the Fall 2021 issue of New Chaucer Studies: Pedagogy and Profession, please submit your contribution at https://escholarship.org/uc/ncs_pedagogyandprofession by 15 May 2021.

Contributions to the NCS: Pedagogy and Profession Newsletter are considered via a rolling acceptance process. Please submit your contribution as an attachment to ncs.pedagogyandprofession@gmail.com.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the editors at ncs.pedagogyandprofession@gmail.com.

UCSD OER on East Asian History

A demon from The Chʼu SilkManuscript:TranslationandCommentary(Canberra: Department of Far Eastern History,Australian National University, 1973).

Professor Sarah Schneewind approached the library in the spring of 2019 seeking options for self-publishing a textbook for the UC San Diego undergraduate course HILD 10 East Asia: The Great Tradition: Early History and Cultures of China, Korea, and Japan. She felt that the textbook she had been using was not meeting her needs and students were upset about the high cost of the book. As the Scholarly Communication Librarian focused on supporting the dissemination and sustainability of the scholarship and research produced at UC San Diego, I was excited to be able to work with Sarah to find the best publishing solution to both meet her needs and produce a textbook that could be used by others, without cost or barriers to access. I met with Sarah and consulted with the Digital Scholarship Librarian, Erin Glass, and the subject specialist librarian, Xi Chen. We looked at options such as Lever Press/Manifold, GitBooks, Scalar, Pressbooks, and, eScholarship, the UC’s open access repository and publishing platform. 

UC scholar publications:

Ultimately, eScholarship won out. The platform presents a low-barrier to entry as far as technicality and cost. The only restriction to uploading a publication to eScholarship is that authors need to be employed by the UC. Journals published on the platform are an exception – there must be some connection to a UC campus, while authors submitting manuscripts can be from outside the UC. While it is simple to post a pdf, some textbooks produced on eScholarship, such as the climate science OA textbook – Bending the Curve, have a high production value and an entire team to produce the work. Sarah was creating this resource herself without technical support and her only criteria being complete creative control, no book publishing charge (BPC), and provided at no cost to her students.

The work was not without cost to produce however, and this is an important consideration if libraries are going to support the production of open educational resources (OER). Sarah successfully petitioned for course release to work on the book but it only covered a portion needed. She was able to pay a graduate student to work with me on locating images that were Creative Commons licensed or in the public domain. I also helped the student with template requests for getting permission from rights holders. I was able to employ an undergraduate to format the final pdf. I spent a lot of time giving guidance on discoverability and rights best practices. Sarah good-naturedly called my methods “bullying,” but I would describe myself as persistent 😉 . At any rate we’d agree that the effort was successful. As of this posting, the metrics are pretty impressive for only being online a couple of months. As Sarah said in the interview that I recorded (interview recording and transcript).

“Of course, my colleagues, just like me, have students who have no money, so they’re very happy to have an open access textbook that they can use. On my eScholarship statistics, I had 2,111 views or something on this textbook in the last month since you posted it. Again, I’m never going to attain that on anything that I write just based on my own actual research. I would say, overall, the response numerically has been very good.”
