    Share your Work on eScholarship – December 6 event 

    This event is for Library staff, at 10:00 am on December 6th:

    Have you been wanting to share your published works openly but haven’t gotten around to it? Don’t miss this opportunity to find out how to share your works on the University of California’s eScholarship platform from the experts! eScholarship is UC’s open access publishing platform for both previously published works, as well as departmental working papers and other documents.

    Previously published works include peer-reviewed final versions of scholarly articles such as those covered by the UC Open Access Policy. All UCSF staff are covered by this Policy.

    California Digital Library guests Catherine Mitchell and Monica Westin will be on site to provide an overview of eScholarship, including how and what to upload, and the upcoming redesign.

    Please register at http://calendars.library.ucsf.edu/event/2954492.

    The Many Paths to Open Access 

    At today’s Library Updates meeting I gave a talk about what’s going on with open access publishing. There’s alot of activity right now around OA publishing as well as some initiatives to transition institutions towards OA on a large scale.

    Here are my slides from the presentation, including notes to clarify what’s on the slides:

    Regarding the Pay-It-Forward project, I wanted to highlight Susan Boone’s  role providing several years’ of UCSF journal payment data to the project coordinator. It was detailed and painstaking work!

    A few people said they were interested in keeping up with developments on these topics. What’s the best way to do that, and for us all to contribute? A Slack channel for scholarly communications topics? Posts to this blog? A wiki page? Add your comment below as to what works best for you!

      Wiki pages, blog posts, and presentations I think. Thank you for a very informative presentation.
      Is there much discussion on how advertisements reduce costs? I looked on PLoS and they cite $40.00/cpm which I assume means someone must click through on the banner.

        Thanks, Alan. I haven’t seen anything specific about how much revenue ads contribute, but I’ll keep an eye out for that info.

      I like the idea of a scholarly communications Slack channel. Slack is well suited for dialog. (And thanks!)

      Thanks Susan. Since the overwhelming response was for a Slack channel, I’ll go ahead and add one. 🙂
