Directly following the webinar, we will share the progress we have made with campus partners and give an update about upcoming faculty education workshops.

Webinar description : Open Educational Resources (OER) initiatives in higher education are increasingly led by academic libraries. A lot of these projects are overseen by librarians who may or may not have OER as part of their job responsibilities yet they make it work because of their strong commitment to making education accessible to all learners.

Workshop: Introduction to Using Metrics to Communicate Research Impact

@tmvogel will be teaching the workshop that is open to all UC San Diego researchers, faculty, students, and staff.

May 8, 2019, 10:00 am – 11:30 am in the UC San Diego Library, Dunst Classroom.

Scholars and researchers are increasingly asked to explain the impact of their research, whether for promotion and tenure, or grant applications and reports, even for visa applications. This workshop will provide an overview of the tools available for gathering citation-based metrics (bibliometrics) and alternative metrics (altmetrics). We will cover their key features and caveats of, and share some examples of how this data can be incorporated into CVs, P&T files, and other places where you want to communicate your scholarly impact. While the focus is on journal articles, metrics for other sources will be briefly covered.

A Talk with Brian Nosek: Improving Openness and Reproducibility in Scholarly Communication

A Talk with Brian Nosek: Improving Openness and Reproducibility 
in Scholarly Communication
Thursday, April 19 • 2-4 p.m.
Geisel Library, Seuss Room

Shifting the scholarly culture toward open access, open data, and open workflow is partly an incentives problem, partly an infrastructure problem, and partly a coordination problem.  The Center for Open Science(COS) is a non-profit technology and culture change organization working on all three. Central elements of COS’s strategy are to provide policy, incentive, and normative solutions that are applicable across institution, funder, publisher, and society stakeholders, and to provide efficient implementations of those solutions with open-source public goods infrastructure that is branded and operated by the communities themselves (OSF).

Brian Nosek is co-founder and executive director of the Center for Open Science, which operates the Open Science Framework. COS is enabling open and reproducible research practices worldwide. Brian is also a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2002. He co-founded Project Implicit, a multi-university collaboration for research and education investigating implicit cognition–thoughts and feelings that occur outside of awareness or control. Brian investigates the gap between values and practices, such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one’s intentions and goals. Nosek applies this interest to improve the alignment between personal and organizational values and practices. In 2015, he was named one of Nature’s 10 and to the Chronicle for Higher Education Influence list.

A New Model for OA: Radically Accessible and Transparent 

What exactly does the “access” mean in OA? Some university presses have begun to publish works open access, but this often means that either the authors or their institution have to come up with large subventions to make this possible. We will discuss the benefits of OA broadly but also platinum OA in particular, which is the version that is neither market dependent nor contingent upon subventions.

Along with it’s benefits, OA has many challenges, one of which is a reputation problem. Presses are dealing with this is through rigorous peer review. But when we say something is peer reviewed, what exactly do we mean? Scholarly publishers of all kinds (OA and traditional, commercial and non-profit) claim that their uniqueness pivots on the process of peer review; however, when we ask individual presses what form that process takes, the answers vary. In this talk, we will discuss the work that is being sponsored by Lever and MIT on a signaling system for peer review transparency. We will also discuss the unique challenge that DH projects pose in the peer review process.

Measuring and Communicating Your Scholarly Impact

Date: May 3, 2018 from 2:00pm – 3:30pm  

Venue: BLB Classroom 3

Registration

Instructor Information: Teri Vogel, Librarian at the UC San Diego Library

Workshop Description:
Scholars and researchers, academic departments, and universities increasingly are asked to explain the impact of their research to external funders and to measure themselves against their peers. Tracking citations and attempting to measure research impact isn’t new, but in recent years the number of available tools has grown significantly. In this workshop, you will learn about these available metrics tools, both “traditional” (like Web of Science) and “alternative” (like Altmetric), how to incorporate these into the telling the story of your research impact, and learn some of the ways you can increase your visibility as a scholar. We’ll cover impact metrics for a variety of research and scholarly works, from journal articles and books to datasets.

If the date & time for the workshop does not fit your schedule, contact us to schedule a special session for you or your department.
