Fall 2020  CMU Scholarly Communication Webinars
The University Libraries will be hosting a number of workshops focused on Scholarly Communications. These workshops are offered each semester on a variety of topics – are designed to help attendees learn a new skill, deepen their understanding of a specific topic, or gain exposure to an unfamiliar technology, tool, or technique.

All workshops are available at no charge and are open to Carnegie Mellon University students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends. Workshops will be delivered virtually, via a Zoom link emailed to participants before the session. Seating is limited and registration is required.

Scholarly Communication in the news

Making a Difference: Assessment of the Open Access Fund at Virginia Tech
Recently published on The Scholarly Kitchen, guest author Gail McMillan discusses the assessment conducted at Virginia Tech on their Open Access Subvention Fund. After eight years of existence, the University Libraries at Virginia Tech wished to gather additional qualitative data on their Open Access Subvention Fund (OASF). Similar to the CMU APC Fund, the Virginia Tech OASF saw an increase of over expenditures on APCs that had increased over 500%, prompting the authors to question the perceptions of the fund by authors. The survey of authors showed overwhelming enthusiasm, with emphasis on the impact the OASF had on the ability of authors to make their work open.

OCLC Research Report: “Social Interoperability in Research Support: Cross-Campus Partnerships and the University Research Enterprise”
OCLC has recently released a new research report entitled, “Social Interoperability in Research Support: Cross-Campus Partnerships and the University Research Enterprise.” This new research report explores the social and structural norms that shape cross-campus collaboration and offers a conceptual model of key university stakeholders in research support. The need for such interoperability can be seen in the cross-institutional relationships between the UniversityLibraries, Campus HR, the Office for the Vice-President for Research, and the Registrar’s office to supply data for Elements. Due to the increased holistic approaches to research information, and the current pressures created by the pandemic, cross-campus collaboration is increasingly becoming more relevant and needed. Those interested in downloading the report may do so from this link.

NISO Releases Three-Year Strategic Plan
Recently announced earlier this month, NISO has released their new three-year strategic plan. This new detailed plan will be the driving document to NISO, which will be focusing on four key themes: Diversity and Inclusion, Trendsetting, Standards Development for Content and Technology, and Community Development.
