UK JISC survey studies progress of electronic doctoral theses - 21 Feb 2012

Doctoral theses can attract significant attention when made openly accessible in electronic form, according to the respondents of a sector-wide survey of information professionals. The JISC-funded survey seeks to give a clearer picture of progress toward electronic thesis deposit in the UK, and how universities are achieving it.

The respondents to the survey were library and repository staff from 144 higher education institutions. Their responses suggested that 81 percent of their organisations will be providing open access to doctoral theses in five years time.

The report shows there are a number of reasons why researchers may not make their theses available electronically, but the principal reason may be the inclusion of sensitive material. Concerns regarding third-party copyright, plagiarism and restrictions on future publications are having little impact on access so far. The report also suggests that theses need to be preserved over the long term - something that the British Library service, EThOS, originally a JISC project, aims to do.

The publication was a joint venture between UKCGE, and UCL Library Services, based on a JISC project by UCL Library Services.

US ebrary’s 2011 Global Student E-book Survey publicly available online - 21 Feb 2012

E-books and research technology provider ebrary, US, a ProQuest business, has announced that the social media data of its 2011 Global Student E-book Survey is now publicly available at http://site.ebrary.com/lib/surveys along with the full report.

According to the report while 41 percent of students are currently using social media for research or study, 59 percent are not. Reasons for not using social media include that existing sites are not a reliable source of information. When asked if they would use social media to share research with peers, 58 percent of students indicated ‘likely’ to ‘very likely,’ while 43 percent stated ‘unlikely.’ While 35 percent students indicated they would ‘likely’ to ‘very likely’ pose a question to a librarian using social media, compared to 45 percent who would ‘likely’ to ‘very likely’ use social media to pose a question to faculty. When asked if they would use social media to connect with students with similar academic interests, 69 percent stated ‘likely’ to ‘very likely,’ while 31 percent stated ‘unlikely.’

More than 6,500 students worldwide participated in ebrary’s 2011 Global Student E-book Survey, which was very similar to a 2008 survey created by librarians. As part of the latest survey, ebrary added questions pertaining to social media, which has grown and changed significantly over the past three years. ebrary welcomes discussion and papers around any of its e-book surveys.

Platts now publishes assessments for a total of 36 months, 12 calendar quarters and three calendar years forward for certain refined products swaps, and a total of 24 months, eight calendar quarters and two calendar years forward for many others.

Through its risk management data services, Platts provides clients with a full and independent view of forward price assessments for natural gas, power, oil, and coal in regions around the world. In addition to more than 200 forward curve price assessments, Platts publishes more than 9,500 benchmark price assessments, references, and indexes in energy, petrochemicals, and metals on a daily basis.

Platts announced its expanded forward curves offering at the Platts Oil Forum, which opened the Energy Institute's International Petroleum Week in London, one of the key events of the industry year.

France Europeana launches animation to explain linked open data - 21 Feb 2012

The European Commission’s Europeana digital library project has launched an animation to explain what Linked Open Data is and why it is a good thing, both for users and for data providers.

Europeana is facilitating developments in Linked Open Data by publishing data for 2.4 million objects for the first time under an open metadata licence - CC0, the Creative Commons' Public Domain Dedication. It is making data openly available to the public and private sectors alike so they can use it to develop innovative applications for smartphones and tablets and to create new web services and portals. This support for commercial enterprise in the digital sector is seen to be central to Europeana's business strategy.

Metadata that is openly available is re-usable by anyone. Linked to external data sources, such as GeoNames, it is enriched and can also be re-used by its providers as the basis of improved services to users.

The concept of Linked Open Data is said to be attracting Europe's major national libraries. The Bibliothèque nationale de France recently launched its rich linked data resource, while the national libraries of the UK, Germany and Spain, among many other cultural institutions, have been publishing their metadata under an open licence.

The World Wide Web Consortium has also put cultural Linked Data high on its agenda, notably via the reports of the Library Linked Data Incubator Group, co-chaired by Europeana's Antoine Isaac.

Support for Open Data innovation is at the root of Europeana's new Data Exchange Agreement, the contract that libraries, museums, and archives agree to when their metadata goes into Europeana. The Data Exchange Agreement has been signed by all the national libraries, by national museums such as the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, and by many of the content providers for entire countries, such as Sweden's National Heritage Board. The new Data Exchange Agreement dedicates the metadata to the Public Domain and comes into effect on July 1, 2012, after which all metadata in Europeana will be available as open data.
