Workshop 1: Open Science and the Impact on Early Career Researchers’ Identities
Google Docs Session Notes

With the rise of audit culture in higher education it has been argued that academic value is increasingly becoming “monetised” and as a result academic values are being transformed (Burrows 2012). Auditing is a power based relationship with those being observed being made into objects of information rather than participants in communication (Foucault 1977). Audits establish the definitions of quality as much as they evaluate (Power 1944). Ultimately, effective audit technologies transform the way people perceive themselves, and relate to their work and colleagues (Shore and Wright 2000). Since the 1980’s universities and their researchers have increasingly been assessed for performance, quality, and efficiency in order to determine value for money (Shore and Wright 2000; Audit Commission 1984). The resulting Research Assessment Exercise and Research Excellence Framework in the United Kingdom, and White House’s Public Access Policy in the United States, although great progress for open science, also epitomise the uptake of “value for money” auditing by governments. Academic reward systems are “the valuing of people’s professional lives” (O’Meara 2002), but the current emphasis on openness is a model of valuing, both economic and sociocultural, the research process as well (Levin and Leonelli 2016). Although current academic reward systems privileging high impact factor publications have hindered adoption of open science, the new funder and university Open Access policies are shifting the requirements for researchers, simultaneously creating new opportunities for open science and new hurdles for researchers. Where is the line between positive growth for open science and simple value for money? Is open science becoming yet another metric that earlier career scientists must fit into in order to survive in the academy?

The open science movement is altering what it means to be an academic scientist. PhD students and early career researchers have reported being dismissed by senior colleagues for submitting to Open Access journals, and being told their publications aren’t ‘real’ because the journal is Open Access and doesn’t have an Impact Factor. However, with the recent growth in open science, the values of the academy may shift to be more inclusive of open science just as they shifted previously in the mid twentieth century for auditing — with the caveat that researchers would then be evaluated based on openness. Or will early career researchers that want to practice open science continue being pulled in two directions and having their identity as a ‘real’ academic scientist questioned?

Purpose of the workshop: To present research on the identities of academic scientists and then have a discussion among attendees on how open science is impacting their research identities. This workshop will begin with the presenter’s discussion of their own research on the identities of academic scientists and then transition into an open discussion among attendees, particularly early career researchers, on how open science practice is impacting their researcher identities.

Target audience: Early career researchers

Learning objectives:
  • Attendees will reflect on how the scientific identity is shaped by research practices.
  • Attendees will share how research practices affect their researcher identity.
  • Attendees will discuss how to bridge the values of open research with the requirements of academic success.

Workshop 2: Open Advocacy Workshop
Google Docs Session Notes

Advocacy is a critical tool in the global effort to set the default to open for research and education—from the national and internationals levels all the way down to individual institutions. Such efforts have been a driving force behind the success of the open movement to date. Public research funders in dozens of countries now have policies requiring that the results of studies they fund be made publicly accessible, and private funders have begun to follow suit.

This policy advocacy has been central to SPARC's work for well over a decade. This workshop will leverage SPARC's experience and success in policy advocacy, such as the successful enactment of the 2008 US National Institutes of Health public access policy and the 2013 White House Directive on Public Access to Publicly Funded Research, to teach participants advocacy skills that will be broadly applicable to campaigns at various levels.

Workshop 3: The Invest in Open Initiative: Building a Scholarly Commons through Collective Action
Google Docs Session Notes
Link to Presentation slides

Purpose of the workshop:
This workshop will raise awareness of the Invest in Open initiative. Our goal is to introduce the philosophy behind the initiative, assess interest, and gain the commitment of attendees for future action. Finally, we will invite the participants to help us envision next steps for this project and for the future growth of a collective infrastructure in support of an open scholarly communications system.

Target audience(s):
The primary audience will be academic librarians, college & university administrators, and publishers and software developers committed to open models for sharing scholarly findings. A secondary audience could include entrepreneurs who wish to support Open projects. Researchers who wish to reach the widest possible international audience for their work may also find the conversation enlightening.

By attending this workshop, participants will:
  • Understand the need to gather accurate, consistent data about existing investments in Open projects.
  • Develop a vision for the potential impact of collective action
  • Develop a sense of urgency and a desire to participate in data collection—now and in the future
  • Identify ways to articulate a commitment to collaborative infrastructure—through investment and development
    • Articulation will be at the library level (philosophy, mission, policies, funding) and
    • At the university level (also philosophy, mission, policies, funding).
  • Identify challenges and barriers to a shift in funding models, and identify solutions to those obstacles.

Workshop 4: Feminist Open Science: Towards Inclusive Knowledge Infrastructure
Google Docs Session Notes

This workshop will centre on how current discourse around Open Science has tended to focus on the creation of new technological platforms and tools to facilitate sharing and reuse of a wide range of research outputs, but has largely avoided tackling many important issues related to inclusion of a diversity of perspectives in science. We believe a feminist perspective can help to surface these issues, particularly with regard to the need for inclusive infrastructure, which are especially important as Open Science increasingly becomes part of government agendas and policies. We expect that researchers, practitioners and policy makers interested in Open Science will benefit from this workshop to think about issues of inclusivity in Open Science that are not receiving sufficient attention. We expect participants who attend this workshop will gain awareness about relevant resources and work that has been done by feminist technoscience scholars to expand the perspectives of Open Science. We hope that participants will take away new possibilities for their work that they may not have considered before. For policy makers, this workshop will be particularly relevant to help think about how evidence for Open Science should be assessed from a more feminist inclusive standpoint. The workshop will also present results from a two-day workshop on Feminist Open Science that will take place prior to the ELPUB workshop, with the intent of soliciting feedback and collaboration.

Workshop 5: Uptake of, and concepts in text and data mining
Google Docs Session Notes

In this two-hour workshop we will attempt to overview basic concepts in text and data mining, with a focus on open source implementations in R. The examples used will be trivial, to convey understanding of the principles. We will pick out some published examples from the biological and chemical literature to show how TDM techniques have been successfully applied. The session will end with an open discussion on the theme of: "Why aren't more researchers using text and data mining?" and all the open access related policy issues that come with this question.

Objectives: 
Overview the power, scalability, and utility of TDM techniques

Who should be interested:
People who do not think of themselves as computer scientists

What attendees are expected to learn:
* Some of what current TDM methods can and cannot do
* The significant difference(s) between "title, abstract, and keyword" mining vs. fulltext mining
* De-mystification of TDM jargon like document-term matrix (DTM), tokenization, part-of-speech (POS) tagging, named entity recognition...
* Why open access papers must be licensed to permit public reposting, modification, and commercial use (a defence of CC BY licencing from the TDM point-of-view)

Google Docs Session Notes

Framing power: Tracing key discourses in Open Science policies
Authors: Denisse Albornoz, Maggie Huang, Issra Marie Martin, Maria Mateus, Aicha Yasmine Touré, Leslie Chan

Open Science is becoming a popular policy object around the world. We question the extent to which Open Science is becoming an “empty” rhetoric tool that serves as a instrument to strengthen powerful institutions and the discursive hegemonies that sustain them. This study sought to identify key narratives about Open Science in policy, and critically assess the extent to which they affect multi-layered domination and inequality schemes that pre-exist in scientific knowledge production. To do so, we conducted a content analysis of Open Science policies stemming from Europe, North America, Latin America and Africa to understand how narratives about Open Science policies are produced, reproduced and by whom; and in turn whose interests are neglected in this process. We found that OS policies are predominantly stemming from Europe, and promoting a technocentric and modernization approach to Open Science that risks widening power imbalances in scientific production.


Data driving sustainability - the African Open Science Platform project
Authors: Ina Smith, Academy of Science of South Africa; Susan Veldsman, Academy of Science of South Africa

Exploitation of the digital revolution offers great potential for less affluent and least economically developed countries (LEDCs) and for the attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. However, LEDCs typically have poorly resourced national research systems. If they cannot participate in research based on big and open data, the gap could grow exponentially in coming years. They will be unable to collect, store and share data, unable to participate in the global research enterprise, unable to contribute as full partners to global efforts on climate change, health care, and resource protection, and unable to fully benefit from such efforts, where global solutions will only be achieved if there is global participation. Thus, both emerging and developed countries have a clear and direct interest in helping to fully mobilize LEDC science potential and thereby to contribute to achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  The initiative described here (African Open Science Platform or AOSP) is directed towards minimising a divide between emerging and developed countries in what is arguably the most important current opportunity to enhance the power and efficiency of the scientific enterprise and its contribution to societal benefit.

Open Science practices adopted by Latin American & Caribbean open access journals
Authors: Andre Luiz Appel, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro; Ivonne Lujano, Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México; Sarita Albagli, Instituto Brasileiro de Informação em Ciência e Tecnologia

The objective of this study is to investigate how Open Science (OS) values and practices have influenced open access (OA) journals publishers in Latin American and the Caribbean (LA&C). Our key questions regarding this issue are: a) to what extent are these practices being adopted by LA&C journals? b) what are the corresponding decision-making processes of scientific publishers? c) are there any public policies in LA&C currently supporting the adoption of these practices? d) what are the possible impacts of these practices (e.g., increased number of articles submissions, greater visibility, indexing of journals, and others)?. In order to answers these questions, we conducted a survey with a sample of LA&C journals obtained from the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) database. From a population of 1,900 journals distributed among 19 LA&C countries listed by UNESCO, we randomly selected a sample of 322 based on a confidence interval of 95% and a margin of error of 5%, distributed per country proportionally. We distributed questionnaires over e-mail in the beginning of March and received a total of 55 full responses. The results reveal that much journals are somewhat aware of or informed about most of open science practices being discussed, but just some of them have already successfully implemented some practices.

Session 2: Data mining and knowledge discovery
Google Docs Session Notes

An expertise recommender system based on data from an Institutional Repository (DIVA)
Authors: Milena Angelova, Technical University of Sofia; Vishnu Manasa Devagiri, Blekinge Institute of Technology; Veselka Boeva, Blekinge Institute of Technology; Peter Linde, Blekinge Institute of Technology; Niklas Lavesson, Blekinge Institute of Technology
Finding experts in academics is an important practical problem, e.g. recruiting reviewers for reviewing conference, journal or project submissions, partner matching for research proposals, finding relevant M. Sc. or Ph. D. supervisors etc. In this work, we discuss an expertise recommender system that is built on data extracted from the Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) instance of the institutional repository system DiVA. The developed prototype system is evaluated and validated on information extracted from the BTH DiVA installation, concerning thesis supervision of researchers affiliated with BTH. The extracted DiVA classification terms are used to build an ontology that conceptualizes the thesis domain supported by the university. The supervisor profiles of the tutors affiliated with the BTH are constructed based on the extracted DiVA data. These profiles can further be used to identify and recommend relevant subject thesis supervisors.

Automatic subject indexing and classification using text recognition and computer-based analysis of tables of contents
Author: Jan Pokorný, National Library of Technology, Prague
This paper will describe a method for machine-based creation of high quality subject indexing and classification for both electronic and print documents using tables of contents (ToCs). The technology described here is primarily focused on electronic and print documents for which, because of technical or licensing reasons, it is not possible to index full text. However, the technology would also be useful for full text documents, because it could significantly enhance the accuracy and relevance of subject description by analyzing the structure of ToCs.

Availability of cultural heritage structured metadata in the World Wide Web
Authors:  Nuno Freire, INESC-ID; Pável Calado INESC-ID, IST, University of Lisbon; Bruno Martins INESC-ID, IST, University of Lisbon
In the World Wide Web, a very large number of resources is made available through digital libraries. The existence of many individual digital libraries, maintained by different organizations, brings challenges to the discoverability, sharing and reuse of the resources. A widely-used approach is metadata aggregation, where centralized efforts like Europeana facilitate the discoverability and use of the resources by collecting their associated metadata. The cultural heritage domain embraced the aggregation approach while, at the same time, the technological landscape kept evolving. Nowadays, cultural heritage institutions are increasingly applying technologies designed for the wider interoperability on the Web. This paper presents a study of the current application by cultural heritage data providers of technological solutions in use for making structured metadata available for re-use in the Internet. We investigated the use of both linked data and technologies related with indexing of resources by Internet search engines. We have conducted a harvesting experiment of the landing pages from websites of digital libraries that participate in Europeana, and collected statistics about the usage these particular technologies. These technologies allow for representing structured data within HTML, or for structured data to be referred to by links within HTML or through HTTP headers capabilities. We conclude with a discussion of future work for establishing a solution for cultural heritage aggregation based on the current situation and the available technologies.

Publication of data derived from patient authored and curated private personal healthcare data
Authors: Peter Pennefather, gDial Inc. and Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toronto; West Suhanic, gDial Inc.; Fatima Lakha, Inclusive Media and Design Center, Ryerson University; Deborah I. Fels, Inclusive Media and Design Center, Ryerson University
An inclusive systemic design is specified to publish data derived from personal data authored and curated by patients. The use case is care for medically significant pain and distress and multi-purpose analysis of data derived from unstructured patient reports about their experiences with that medical care. The design specifies how to store and access derived data through distributed ledgers that support qualitative and quantitative analysis by diverse users. It allows patients to author and curate their private data and enables polycentric governance over publication and analysis of the common pool resource of data derived from that private healthcare related data.

Session 3: Open Science and Global South II
Google Docs Session Notes

The DOAJ Ambassador Programme: an example project for promoting cognitive justice in the Global South
Authors:  Tom Olyhoek, DOAJ Editor in Chief; Barbara Porrett, DOAJ Ambassador Canada; Dominic Mitchell, DOAJ Operations Manager
Global scientific publishing, including open access publishing, is heavily biased towards journals and authors from the Global North.  This has resulted in a knowledge gap  between the South and the North. It has led to a situation where scientific knowledge from the Global South is very much underrepresented  in the collective scientific output worldwide: a problem which has been described as cognitive injustice.  Unfortunately this situation is not helped by the fact that many questionable publishers are based in countries in the Global South. To address these issues the Directory of Open Access Journal (DOAJ) started an Ambassador programme in 2016 with the help of funding from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC Canada). The main objective of the programme was to increase the number of quality open access journals published, and the quality of open access publishing, in the Global South.

Inequality in knowledge production: The integration of academic infrastructure by big publishers
Authors: George Chen, Knowledge GAP - University of Toronto; Alejandro Posada, Knowledge GAP - University of Toronto
This paper attempts to illustrate the implications of a simultaneous redirection of the big publishers’ business strategy towards open access business models and the acquisition of scholarly infrastructure utilizing the conceptual framework of rent-seeking theory. To document such a transformation, we utilized financial databases to analyze the mergers and acquisitions of the top publicly traded academic publishers. We then performed a service analysis to situate the acquisitions of publishers within the knowledge and education life-cycles, illustrating what we term to be their vertical integration within their respective expansion target life-cycles. Implications of higher education institutions’ increased dependency towards the companies and increased influence by the companies on the institution and individual researcher were noted from the vertical integration of products. Said vertical integration is analyzed via a rent theory framework and described to be a form of rent-seeking complementary to the redirection of business strategies to open access. Finally, the vertical integration is noted to generate exclusionary effects upon researchers/institutions in the global south.

The Public Knowledge Project: Reflections and directions after its first two decades
Authors:  Juan Pablo Alperin, Simon Fraser University; John Willinsky, Stanford University; Brian Owen, Simon Fraser University; James MacGregor, Simon Fraser University; Alec Smecher, Simon Fraser University; Kevin Stranack, Simon Fraser University
As the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) enters its third decade, it faces the responsibilities of supporting the more than 10,000 journals using its software and are dependent on PKP continuing to develop the code. In the fall of 2017, PKP, with the support of the Arnold Foundation, contracted the consulting services of BlueSky to Blueprint, with its principal Nancy Maron embarking on an exploration of PKP’s standing and prospects among a sample of those involved in scholarly publishing, including current, former, and potential users of its software (Maron 2018). This paper presents BlueSky’s findings and PKP’s responses in what may serve as a lesson on the maturing of, and challenges faced by, an open source software project seeking to sustain increased global access to research and scholarship.

Session 4: New Use Cases of Digital Infrastructure
Google Docs Session Notes

Collecting inclusive usage metrics for Open Access publications: The HIRMEOS Project
Author: Javier Arias, Open Book Publishers
Open Access has matured for journals, but its uptake in the book market is still delayed, despite the fact that books continue to be the leading publishing format for social sciences and humanities. The 30-months EU-funded project HIRMEOS (High Integration of Research Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure) tackles the main obstacles of the full integration of five important digital platforms supporting open access monographs. The content of participating platforms will be enriched with tools that enable identification, authentication and interoperability (via DOI, ORCID, Fundref), and tools that enrich information and entity extraction (INRIA (N)ERD), the ability to annotate monographs (Hypothes.is), and gather usage and alternative metric data. This paper focuses on the development and implementation of Open Source Metrics Services that enable the collection of OA Metrics and Altmetrics from third party platforms, and how the architecture of these tools will allow implementation in any external platform, particularly in start-up Open Access publishers.

Next generation repositories: de-coupling content management and peer review
Authors: Kathleen Shearer, Confederation of Open Access Repositories; COAR Next Generation Repositories Working Group; Pandelis Perakakis, University of Granada
In April 2016, COAR launched the Next Generation Repositories Working Group to consider the future role of repositories in scholarly communication, as well as the functionalities and technologies required to support this new role. The vision is to position repositories as the foundation for a distributed, globally networked infrastructure for scholarly communication, on top of which layers of value added services will be deployed, thereby transforming the system, making it more research-centric, open to and supportive of innovation, while also collectively managed by the scholarly community. One of the important functionalities included in the next generation repositories vision is to support the development of peer review services on top of the collective contents of repositories. This vision essentially decouples peer review from the content management layer, and could support a new paradigm for the dissemination of research.

This paper outlines the vision and the draft functional aspects of the peer review aspect of the system and presents the rationale for why we believe that an expanded role for institutions in scholarly communication landscape is an important aspect for ensuring greater equality, inclusiveness and sustainability in the future.

From the Platform for Experimental, Collaborative Ethnography (PECE) to Research Infrastructure for Collaborative Hermeneutics (RICH)
Authors:  Kim Fortun, University of California, Irvine; Michael Fortun, University of California, Irvine; Lindsay Poirier, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Sharon Traweek, University of California, Los Angeles; Brian Callahan, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute ; Aalok Khandekar, Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad; Brandon Costelloe-Kuehn, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Bradley Fidler, Stevens Institute of Technology
This presentation will describe our work to develop the Platform for Experimental, Collaborative Ethnography (PECE, pronounced “peace”), and our vision for the broader infrastructure needed to support open, transnational, interdisciplinary research data sharing and collaboration going forward, attentive to the special challenges of working with qualitative and unstructured data, multiple analytic framings, and interpretive pluralism. We refer to the larger project as “Research Infrastructure for Collaborative Hermeneutics” (RICH), which includes work to build sustainable infrastructure for the empirical humanities and creative social sciences, in ways that position researchers in these fields to collaborate (integrating their data and findings) with researchers in the sciences, engineering, medicine, law, business, journalism, and so on. We are thus concerned with multiple scales of research activity, the social and technical infrastructure needed to support and sustain this activity, and the ways this work can contribute to the Knowledge Commons and broader public good.

This paper presents the evolution and the key issues of the Partnership in Support of Open Access to Scholarly Journals in HSS and Arts and Letters. First proposed to the community by Erudit and the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) - and now driven by Coalition Publi.ca, a strategic partnership created in the spring of 2017 by Erudit and the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) - this Partnership establishes an innovative model for collaboration between university libraries and scholarly journals in transition toward complete open access.

Sustainability in publishing: An Open Access publisher’s view
Author: Martyn Rittman, MDPI
Sustainability is an essential part of the work of publishers. Here, the view of an open access publisher, MDPI, is presented with regards to sustainability within publishing. MDPI’s understanding of sustainability is given and some of the concrete actions it leads to. These include supporting umbrella initiatives, exploring alternative business and editorial models, elements of open science, and ensuring the long-term sustainability of published content. Our aim is to demonstrate actions that could be taken by other publishers and to invite dialog with the broader research community for how a large open access publisher can contribute to a sustainable knowledge ecosystem.

Full disclosure: Open business data and the Publisher's Cookbook
Authors: Sebastian Nordhoff, Language Science Press; Felix Kopecky, Language Science Press
This short paper presents the three main outcomes of the OpenAire project "Full disclosure: replicable strategies for book publications supplemented with empirical data": a fully specified business model; accountacy data; and a “cookbook” containing recipes how to set up a resilient community-based book publisher. The provision of these items available for free reuse will allow other publishing projects to understand, adapt, and modify the community-based model of Language Science Press.

Shared infrastructure for next-generation books: HIRMEOS
Authors: Brian Hole, Ubiquity Press; Francesco Devirgilio, Ubiquity Press; Chealsye Bowley, Ubiquity Press
This paper will present an introduction and status report on work being done to provide shared infrastructure for open access book publishers under the HIRMEOS (High Integration of Research Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure) project. A central goal of HIRMEOS is to better integrate open access books with the open science ecosystem, in particular helping to increase the visibility and value of work from the social sciences and humanities (HIRMEOS 2018). Its wide-ranging scope includes building prototypes and ongoing systems to provide full integration with authentication and interoperability services (DOIs, ORCiD and FundRef), content enrichment services (INRIA N(E)RD), dissemination platforms (DOAB), a new peer review certification platform, Annotation services (hypothes.is), and usage and alternative metrics.

In search of a sustainable model for digital heritage repositories: a case study
Author: Nathalie Fargier, ENS de Lyon
A wide range of initiatives for developing research and data infrastructures have been funded in recent years. There is a growing concern amongst the academic community to maintain the resources invested beyond the period of the original research funding. If technical progress has been made to preserve the data themselves, few thinking and operational solutions exist for the institutions that create, disseminate, curate and preserve the data. How to ensure their existence over the medium or the long-term? This paper is a case study: it addresses the sustainability issues faced by Persée, a French platform dedicated to digitized documentary heritage that was launched in 2003. Through this example, the aim is to present, in practical terms, how an organization has to adapt and to change to sustain over time. Persée tested and combined various mechanisms (technical actions, users’ involvement, organizational evolution, marketing, funding models) with reciprocal influence, to achieve sustainability. Rather than a steady state, ensuring the long term existence of a data infrastructure is an ongoing and resource intensive process.

Google Docs Session Notes

Open, Sustainable Research Communities and the Public Good
Since the Royal Society of London, scholarly societies have been founded to facilitate communication among their members. This is to say: scholarly communication is the very reason for being of those societies. As a result, mission-driven societies have the potential to develop, implement, and support new forms of and platforms for scholarly communication that focus on serving their members’ needs even if those new forms and platforms don’t fit conventional publishing value propositions. In this talk, I will explore the development of Humanities Commons as an example that might demonstrate the potential that online scholarly networks present both for researchers and for the societies to which they belong — not least in moving the future of open scholarly communication beyond the market-based logic of APCs and VC funding, and toward the creation of a sustainable alternative intellectual economy.

The value of network sustainability: Why we join research infrastructures
Author: Elisabeth Heinemann, Deutsche Geisteswissenschaftliche Institute im Ausland (MWS)
This paper develops the concept of network sustainability. To become and stay sustainable, distributed research infrastructures need to satisfy present needs while at the same time be flexible and resilient to meet future requirements. For this it is not enough to merely build a sustainable economic model and be technically viable. Research infrastructures that can understand, address and shape future needs have a sustainable community network. Clear characteristics of a research infrastructure with a sustainable network are that partners gain access to other networks and interest groups, that knowledge, information and expertise is shared freely among partners, that the infrastructure increases partners’ visibilities and vice versa, and that partners are enabled to stay current and state-of-the-art. This is shown on OPERAS (open access in the european research area through scholarly communication), a research infrastructure for open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities, and its partner Max Weber Stiftung (MWS), a German research foundation.

Global scholarly collaboration: from traditional citation practice to direct communication
Authors: Sergey Parinov, CEMI RAS, RANEPA Victoria Antonova, Higher School of Economics
Recent research information systems development allows a transformation of citations in research papers’ full-text into interactive elements. Such interactivity in some cases works as an instrument of direct scholarly communications between citing and cited authors. We discuss this challenge for research e-infrastructure development including opportunities for improvements in research cooperation and in collaboration mechanisms of global research community.

ScholarlyHub: A progress report at six months
Authors: Guy Geltner, ScholarlyHub / University of Amsterdam; John Willinsky, ScholarlyHub / Stanford University
ScholarlyHub (SH) was launched in November 2017 as a portal to fund and create a social network for scholarship-using individuals and communities that is supported and directed from the bottom up and not beholden to venture capitalists on the one hand and governments on the other. As an inclusive, member-run portal, it hopes to connect rather than replace numerous non-profit and open-source OA initiatives, which tend to lack a visible and attractive front end, and which may not currently be interoperable. If its goals can be realized, SH may offer one solution to the full workflow platforms that for-profit conglomerates are on the cusp of achieving. This practitioner’s paper presents the key characteristics of SH and offers an early progress report.

Google Docs Session Notes

Simplifying OA policy compliance for authors through a publisher-repository partnership
Author(s): Mariya Maistrovskaya, University of Toronto Libraries; Judy Hum-Delaney, Canadian Science Publishing
This paper will describe a collaboration between Canadian Science Publishing, an independent, not-for-profit publisher of over 20 science journals, and the University of Toronto Libraries, to create an automated transfer and deposit of author manuscripts into the U of T’s research repository, TSpace. An integration workflow developed shortly thereafter by the UTL’s Information Technology Services team in close consultation with CSP delivers both a manuscript and accompanying metadata from the publisher’s system into the repository where it is assigned a permanent URI, openly released, and widely indexed by search engines. The automated manuscript deposit workflow removes the dependence on researchers keeping the ephemeral manuscript version. By transferring both the manuscript and accompanying metadata into a repository directly from the publisher’s system, it makes compliance seamless and hassle free for grant recipients, and opens doors for further publisher-repository collaboration.

It’s all in the relationships: A liaison role for librarian-publishers
Authors: Emily Carlisle, Western Libraries; Kristin Hoffmann, Western Libraries
Link to presentation
In fall 2017, we initiated a migration of the University of Western Ontario’s 32 library-hosted journals from the bepress Digital Commons platform to the Open Journal Systems (OJS) platform. This was a response to concerns expressed by librarians and journal editors regarding potential implications of Elsevier’s August 2017 acquisition of bepress, including the possibility that Elsevier might place ads on their journal pages or increase fees for journal-hosting services. Our goal was to mitigate those concerns by ensuring that Western Libraries’ journal platform remained as open and community-driven as possible. Because the migration coincided with a librarian taking on responsibilities for journal hosting, separate from broader institutional repository responsibilities, the migration has also provided the opportunity for a re-assessment and renewed emphasis for our library publishing service.

The launch of Centre Mersenne, a technical infrastructure to support the move towards Diamond open access
Authors: Thierry Bouche, Université Grenoble Alpes; Evelyne Miot, Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS- French National Center for Scientific Research); Célia Vaudaine, Université Grenoble Alpes
The aim of this paper is to present the Centre Mersenne for Open Scientific Publishing, a new open access scientific publishing infrastructure for publications written in LaTeX. The Centre Mersenne was launched in January 2018 with the first volume of the newly-created journal Algebraic Combinatorics. This non-profit initiative hosted by French public institutions was created to address a growing need within the scientific community for alternative solutions simultaneously scalable, sustainable, trustworthy, of high quality and at fair price. The Centre Mersenne supports publications such as journals, books and proceedings from any scientific discipline, provided they are written in LaTeX and engaged towards Diamond open access.

Funders' Roundtable
Google Docs Session Notes

Research funders, inclusive of national agencies and private foundations, are increasingly cognizant of the multiple downstream benefits of an open research and communication ecosystem. The growing consensus is that opening research and broadening access to research results will increase the economic and societal impact of research funding, from improving public policy, to accelerating discovery, to greater participation in science by citizens, and extending social justice and equity for a stronger civil society.

While some funders have been experimenting with funding open initiatives and with open policy for research results and publications, others are still unsure, but are keeping a close eye on relevant developments, so that they can better determine whether open policies align with or purposefully extend the mission of their organizations.

Yet, funders do not always have shared vision and principles for supporting open initiatives, resulting in a fragmented landscape, with projects that are often funded on a short-term piecemeal basis, that struggle for sustainability after the seed funding period is over. The important issue of how disparately funded projects could be joined up as coherent and sustainable infrastructure to support open research across different communities has largely been left unanswered.

Funders have traditionally been reluctant to fund “infrastructure” projects, as they tend to require longer term support, while technological changes are happening at pace that are difficult to anticipate.  So it is often hard to see their return on funding investment in the short term if funders choose to invest in infrastructure.  And while higher education institutions and funders are reluctant to invest in common infrastructure, commercial entities are much more agile in seizing the opportunity, acquiring vulnerable initiatives and assimilating them into a controlled workflow that ties researchers and their institutions deeper and deeper into their platform. The acquisition of the many scholarly communication workflow tools and platforms by Elsevier is a clear case in point (Posada and Chen).  

The primary theme of the ELPUB2018 meeting is how to Connect the Knowledge Commons by transforming projects developed in silos to a broad based common infrastructure sustained by collective resources and community governance. Funders are a key component of this transformation. But this is an uncharted territory and much remains to be determined.

The idea of a funders roundtable in the context of a scholarly communication conference with multiple scholar-driven initiatives is to begin to align better the needs of the scholarly community and the desire of funders to see results and real impact for their investment.

The Purpose of the Funders Roundtable is to provide a forum for:
  • Funders to share experience and their rationale for supporting open initiatives, their implementation strategies, successes so far, barriers and challenges encountered.
  • Discussion of potential co-funding strategies that would be mutually beneficial to the funders’ missions and to the advancement of a scholarly commons.
  • Dialogues between developers, researchers, community oriented publishers and funders, who do not usually have a chance to fully understand each other’s needs and constraints.
  • Design of the knowledge commons with not-for-profit publishers and technology partners with openness as the foundation and by design.

Whose infrastructure? Towards inclusive and collaborative knowledge infrastructures in Open Science
Authors:  Rebecca Hillyer, Stellenbosch University; Angela Okune, UC Berkley; Denisse Albornoz, University of Toronto; Alejandro Posada, University of Toronto; Leslie Chan, University of Toronto
The current discourse around Open Science has tended to focus on the creation of new technological platforms and tools to facilitate sharing and reuse of a wide range of research outputs. There is an assumption that once these new tools are in place, researchers - and at times, members of the general public- are able to participate in the creation of scientific knowledge in more accessible and efficient ways. While many of these new tools have indeed assisted in the ease of collaboration through online spaces and mechanisms, the narrowness of how infrastructure is imagined by open science practitioners tends to put the use of technology ahead of the issues that people are actually trying to solve, and fails to acknowledge the systemic constraints that exist within and between some communities. Drawing on an analytical framework grounded in Actor Network Theory (ANT), this paper highlights the need for inclusive knowledge infrastructures, particularly in the context of sustainable development. Three case studies from the Open and Collaborative Science in Development Network (OCSDNet), are outlined in order to illustrate the importance of moving beyond a definition of infrastructure as merely a technical or physical entity. These cases demonstrate how more sustainable and nuanced forms of collaboration and participation can be enabled through broader understandings of knowledge infrastructures.

Beyond the dichotomy between natural and knowledge commons: reflections on the IAD framework from the Ubatuba Open Science Project
Authors: Sarita Albagli, Ibict – Brazilian Institute of Information in Science and Technology; Anne Clinio, Liinc – Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Information and Knowledge Studies; Henrique Parra, Unifesp – Federal University of São Paulo; Felipe Fonseca, Ubalab
The paper presents a critical analysis of the possibilities and limits of the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework, proposed by Elinor Ostrom and team, specially addressing the mutual relations between natural and knowledge commons. It results from an action-research project on the role of open science (OS) in development, carried out in the municipality of Ubatuba, on the North Coast of the State of São Paulo, Brazil, in 2015-2017. The work involved: systematizing the literature on the IAD framework; mapping and selecting literature representative of other theoretical and conceptual approaches; critically using and adapting the framework to the case studied. The project provided the opportunity to observe how these dynamics take place in a relatively small-scale (while heavily interconnected) context. While the IAD framework helped us to analyse the institutional, political, and governance issues affecting knowledge production and circulation, we observed the higher complexity of our action arena, shedding light on the fact that natural and knowledge commons are the two dimensions of the same "commoning" process.

Game not over: End-user programming and game system modding as models for extending community engagement
Author: Matthew Wells, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada
In certain digital gaming subcultures, specific games are extended and enhanced by players who create "mods", or modifications, that add new artwork, new scenarios, and even new rules. "Modders" meet in online communities that foster engagement through the discussion and self-publication of mods, and these can keep interest in a given game going years after it is released. These DIY efforts could be adapted by academic publishers, particularly those focused on design research, to encourage sustained engagement with scholarly materials. This article discusses the history of modding, provides examples, and sketches one online modding community in detail. It then makes the argument that modding is a form of end-user engagement of the sort advocated by scholars such as Gerald Fischer, and compares modding to other online academic publishing efforts, such as webtexts.

Session 9: National and regional infrastructure projects
Google Docs Session Notes

Coalition Publi.ca: Building a national infrastructure for Canadian scholarly publishing
Authors: Kevin Stranack, SFU Library / Public Knowledge Project; Brian Owen, SFU Library / Public Knowledge Project; Tanja Niemann, Erudit; Émilie Paquin, Erudit
This paper provides an introduction to Coalition Publi.ca, a new joint initiative of two key Canadian-based projects, Erudit and the Public Knowledge Project. Coalition Publi.ca is funded through the Canadian Foundation for Innovation - Major Science Initiative program (2017-2022) in order to build and sustain a national Canadian publishing, dissemination, and research infrastructure that offers services to both the French and English language scholarly publishing communities. We will argue that the development of sustainable open access publishing in Canada requires an open, non-commercial infrastructure, based in the academy and controlled by the academy. The Coalition Publi.ca model is specifically targeted to support humanities and social sciences publications in Canada, but we believe it is applicable to other national or regional jurisdictions.

Open access infrastructure in Greece: current status, challenges and perspectives
Authors: Aspasia Togia, Alexander TEI of Thessaloniki; Eleftheria Koseoglou, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki; Sofia Zapounidou, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki; Nikolaos Tsigilis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
OA infrastructure is necessary for implementing open access and open science in any country. Open access infrastructures in Greece have been steadily improving over the past years, as more and more stakeholders follow international trends and participate in European networks and projects. The aim of the present paper is to give a description of the Greek OA infrastructure with emphasis on Institutional Repositories and OA journals. Building upon previous literature (Banou & Kostagiolas, 2007; Chantavaridou, 2009; Georgiou & Papadatou, 2010) and relying of data collected from a number of sources, the article presents both quantitative and qualitative information relating to the state-of-the-art of OA in order to identify current trends and future challenges. Data gathered from directories and aggregators were verified to ensure that IRs, OA journals and digital collections are still active. We collected information about specific features, such as the type of content, the metadata schemas in use, the copyright policy and the software in order to give a complete picture of the status of OA infrastructure in Greece.


The end of a centralized Open Access project and the beginning of a community-based sustainable infrastructure for Latin America: Redalyc.org after fifteen years
Authors: Arianna Becerril-García, Autonomous University of the State of Mexico; Eduardo Aguado-López, Autonomous University of the State of Mexico 
The Latin American region has an ecosystem where the nature of publication is conceived as the act of making public, of sharing and not as the publishing industry. International, national and institutional contexts have led to a redefinition of a project –Redalyc.org- that began in 2003 and that has already fulfilled its original mission: give visibility to knowledge generated in Latin America and promote quality of scientific journals. Nevertheless, it is mandatory to be transformed from a Latin American platform based in Mexico into a community-based regional infrastructure that continues assessing journals quality and providing access to full-text in benefit of journals visibility and free access to knowledge. A framework that generates technology in favor of the empowerment and professionalization of journal editors, making the editorial task in open access sustainable and that allows Redalyc to sustain itself collectively. This work describes the first Redalyc's model, presents the problematic in course and the new business model Redalyc is designing and adopting to operate on.
