ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: Public Health Reports (PHR), the official journal of the Office of the US Surgeon General and US Public Health Service, is the oldest public health journal in the United States. Considering its heritage through the eyes of its past editors in chief (EICs), many of whom have been influential public health figures, can provide a fresh point of view on US public health history, of which the journal has been an integral part. Here, we reconstruct the timeline of past PHR EICs and identify women among them. METHODS: We reconstructed the PHR EIC timeline by reviewing the journal's previous mastheads and its articles describing leadership transitions. For each EIC, we identified dates in office, concurrent job titles, key contributions, and other important developments. RESULTS: PHR had 25 EIC transitions in 109 years of its history, during which a single individual in charge of the journal could be identified. Only 5 identifiable EICs were women, who served as EIC for approximately one-quarter of the journal's traceable history (28 of 109 years). PHR's longest-serving EIC was a woman named Marian P. Tebben (1974-1994). CONCLUSIONS: PHR history revealed frequent EIC transitions and a low representation of women among its EICs. Mapping the timeline of past EICs of a historic public health journal can yield valuable insights into the workings of US public health, especially in the area of building a research evidence base.

ABSTRACT

This study investigates how article downloads from ScienceDirect changed after Temple University Libraries downsized its all-inclusive Elsevier big deal bundle to a selective custom package. After the libraries lost current-year access to nearly half of Elsevier's active journals, the total downloads from Elsevier journals declined by 16.2 percent over three years. Combined use of still-subscribed and open access journals fell 10.6 percent in the same three years, suggesting that the drop in total use is due not only to the loss of journals but also to factors that would affect the remaining journals, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and a slight decrease in enrollment. Patrons may have substituted articles from still-subscribed and open access journals for those that were canceled, though the data are not conclusive. Reliance on open access appears to have increased.

ABSTRACT

Launching a new open access journal of European law in times of COVID-19, economic slumps and widespread financial pressures on higher education is not a decision to be taken lightly, and it has not been taken lightly. [...]we want to give scholarship space to breathe- literally, by encouraging long, long articles, and figuratively, by privileging ‘slow', well crafted, fully matured work. [...]European Law Open will confront the normative principles, institutional structures, decision-making processes and substantive values that purportedly found the Union and shape its law. Not only is the European Union a major actor that has significant impacts – both positive and negative – on all the mentioned concerns and problems, but its laws and institutions have played an important role in both ushering some of the current challenges and can hopefully contribute to solving them.

ABSTRACT

In 2019, GeoScienceWorld was actively planning to bring a large content and data repository, that includes a significant proportion of highly valued Grey Literature, into our existing collection of 50+ peer-reviewed journals and over 2300 books in the geosciences. Due to various external situations, including the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and an absence of community-accepted standards for Grey Literature publishing, this project has stalled. GeoScienceWorld continues to investigate opportunities to bring original datasets, as well as other collections of Grey Literature, predominantly in the form of partner societies' conference proceedings and related conference materials, into our traditional research platform. We are also in the early stages of planning for a new research tool that will be truly content agnostic in bringing research and valuable insights to our primary end-user stakeholders, researchers, whether in academia or industry. As an organization, GeoScienceWorld is further implementing an Agile mindset and development philosophy to bring increasingly useful, and timely, resources to our stakeholder groups. A key ceremony of all truly Agile development processes is the Retrospective. In this paper, I review the initial aims of the project to incorporate a large grey dataset into our traditional scholarly literature platform and provide reflections on how both GeoScienceWorld and the wider Grey Literature community can move forward to bring such valuable datasets to audiences that both want and need, such content to advance their research. For each element of the initial project, I ask the following Agile Retrospective questions: What did we do well? What could we have done better? What have we learned? What are we still puzzled by? As a result of applying these questions to the initial project, I will present recommendations that both inform GeoScienceWorld's future integration and presentation of Grey Literature, as well as offer a clearer path toward greater Grey Literature acceptance within traditional scholarly platforms such as ours. © 2023 TextRelease.

ABSTRACT

Les auteurs pensent que le métavers est une technologie d'infrastructure de changement de paradigme qui pourrait rendre 60% des universités non pertinentes dans les 20 prochaines années si elles ne s'éloignent pas du modèle des méta-études. Le modèle des méta-études est un processus d'archivage, largement basé sur le papier, qui consiste à "enseigner" ce qui a été écrit par d'autres personnes. Ce modèle est orienté vers le passé et soutenu par l'impératif "publier ou périr". Bien que la pandémie de COVID-19 ait forcé les universités à adopter des technologies qui font partie du Métavers, les universités ont surtout utilisé ces technologies pour perpétuer le statu quo. Les universités doivent changer leurs pratiques et devenir plus flexibles, en développant le design thinking, le questionnement et l'esprit critique, tant pour les étudiants que pour elles-mêmes en tant qu'institutions. Si elles ne le font pas, des entités commerciales telles que Meta et Microsoftdécideront de l'enseignement dispensé dans le métavers. Si cela se produit, les étudiants iront vers ces entités commerciales pour apprendre, que les universités soient présentes ou non. Il est donc important que les universités changent leurs paradigmes et adoptent cette technologie. Ce faisant, elles découvriront comment le métavers peut être utilisé efficacement dans l'éducation pour favoriser les principes et les valeurs permettant de construire des connaissances et de cimenter des pratiques éthiques et pérennes.Alternate :The authors believe that the metaverse is a paradigm shift infrastructure technology that may make 60% of universities irrelevant in the next 20 years if they do not move away from the metastudies model. The metastudies model is an archival, largely paper-based process of "teaching" what other people have written about. The metastudies model is focused on the past and supported by the publish-or-perish imperative. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has forced universities to adopt technologies that form a part of the metaverse, universities have mostly used these technologies to perpetuate the status quo. Universities need to change their practices and become more agile, adopting design thinking, inquiring minds, and critical thinking both for students and for themselves as institutions. If they do not, commercial entities such as Meta and Microsoft will decide what education takes place in the metaverse. If that happens, students will go to those commercial entities to learn, whether universities are present or not. It is therefore important that universities change their paradigms and engage with this technology. By doing so, they will discover how metaverse can be used effectively in education to foster principles and values for building knowledge and cementing practices that are ethical and sustainable.

ABSTRACT

India is the second-largest book market in the world for English-language content. Indian publishing, predominantly educational and 75 per cent in English, is growing at a com-pound annual growth rate. Tracing the busi-ness's 75-year journey, this article highlights key phases and players that have shaped the way this industry looks today. Family busi-nesses and international publishers have been an intrinsic part of the local publishing scene from the start. A large textbook market and growing general books market sustain them as new players continue to appear on the scene. The book-publishing ecosystem has historically included bookselling, dis-tribution, and printing and in more recent times has expanded to edtech and telecoms. The COVID-19 experience has enhanced the need for collaborations in this ecosystem to sustain Indian publishing. Although the books market remains 90 per cent print, its sustain -ability requires e-resources that enhance, support, and test learning from these printed books. Finding suitable pricing models in a historically price-sensitive market is one of the key challenges. Government policy plays a key role in the direction and growth of Indian publishing. Tax, copyright, and edu-cation policies can pave the way for Indian publishing to be a research and skilling hub for this youthful nation.

ABSTRACT

The COVID‐19 pandemic severely disrupted work patterns in academia. There is mounting evidence that men's publishing productivity increased while women's decreased. Yet most studies of this phenomenon have analyzed authorship and peer review data separately, without considering their interrelationship. We conceptualize authorship and peer review together as visible and invisible forms of labor, a lens that connects service work to other forms of gendered unpaid labor. Drawing on a data set of author and review activity at American Ethnologist from 2014 to 2021, we blend quantitative analysis with qualitative insights from our positions as the journal's editorial assistants. We find that in 2020 women performed staggeringly more service work than men relative to their rates of manuscript submission. Our findings disrupt the discourse of “a return to normal,” which ignores the differential effects of our collective pandemic experience.

ABSTRACT

Previous policy allowed such research to remain behind journal paywalls for a year after publication—in effect, a one year embargo before the public gained free access.1 Alondra Nelson, head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, said, “The American people fund tens of billions of dollars of cutting edge research annually. To support scientific and research integrity, public access policies should transparently inform the public about critical information, said the White House statement, “including that which is related to the authorship, funding, affiliations, and development status of federally funded research.” Statement from Shelley Husband, senior vice president, government affairs, AAP, on decision by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to make private sector publications freely available. 25 Aug 2022. https://publishers.org/news/statement-from-shelley-husband-senior-vice-president-government-affairs-association-of-american-publishers-on-decision-by-white-house-office-of-science-and-techno 3 Nelson A, Executive Office of the President, Office of Science and Technology Policy.

ABSTRACT

IO's Conflict of Interest policy prohibits an editorial team member who has a conflict with any of the manuscript's authors (for instance, currently working or studying at the same institution, a current or recent co-author, or a former graduate student) from any involvement with or capacity to access the manuscript. Conflicts of interest are noted by our managing editor, and the broader policy (as well as issues related to its implementation) is overseen by IO's Ethics Committee. In the spirit of providing an efficient review process, we aim to invite authors to revise manuscripts only when we, as editors, deem the manuscript to have a strong probability of ultimate success. David Mainwaring, Executive Publisher for Social Science Journals at Cambridge University Press, will continue to work with us to navigate the landscape of academic publishing, which currently faces many challenges.

ABSTRACT

In current copyright law, doing that would raise questions about first sale and exhaustion, about fair use, and about reproduction and public performance. (Tawyers in secondary and primary education are even more so, even assuming - contrary to most of my experience - that they know anything about IP law at all.) For more than a decade, colleges and universities have been migrating course administration and a lot of pedagogy onto campus-wide courseware platforms that are optimized to sync with copyright permissions systems for media content. The "best practices" statements [https: / /cmsimpact.org/program/fair-use/] produced by the Center for Media and Social Impact at American University can be extremely helpful, though teachers (and others) should read them carefully. A single teacher may feel exposed and at risk for streaming media to their students;a community of teachers has a stronger voice, both speaking to its members and also speaking to outsiders - such as copyright owners, or campus administrators.

ABSTRACT

The Journal of Medical Internet Research is pleased to offer "Research Letter" as a new article type. Research Letters are similar to original and short paper types in that they report the original results of studies in a peer-reviewed, structured scientific communication. The Research Letter article type is optimal for presenting new, early, or sometimes preliminary research findings, including interesting observations from ongoing research with significant implications that justify concise and rapid communication.
