    • OSI Issue Briefs April 20, 2018
      At the OSI Summit meeting in DC last month the group discussed developing a series of “Issue Briefs” — short papers that would distill some of what we’ve learned from the OSI conferences and discussions so far, designed to spur further work.

    • The growing creativity of predators: Angela Cochran on acceptance forgeries April 18, 2018
      The problem of predatory and deceptive practices in publishing continues to grow and diversify. In an excellent Scholarly Kitchen posting today, our fellow OSIer Angela Cochran discusses the problem of forged acceptance letters. Prepare to be creeped out: https://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2

      There are a number of things that puzzle me about this statement, but I will point to just one of them. A link to it has been posted on my blog and flagged as feedback on a recent interview I did with UC Berkeley’s University Librarian Jeff MacKie-Mason: https://bit.ly/2qFBcko That

      Thank you Colleen, Can I bug you with a couple of follow-up questions? No rush---thank you for taking a swing at these: 1. If I’m hearing you correctly, OA2020 is about converting subscription resources to OA resources, correct? Different approaches are embraced, but the main

      Colleagues, as Richard and Glenn have asked me to share more information about the goals of the Open Access 2020 Initiative, I am pleased to offer the following. Why is an approach that focuses on revenue flows and economic forces necessary within the OA movement? While the MPDL White Paper
