UK London Info International announces new webinar in collaboration with Clarivate Analytics - 12 Jul 2017

London Info International in collaboration with Clarivate Analytics has announced a webinar - What makes a world class university? The event is scheduled for July 20, 16.00 CEST, 15.00 BST, 10.00 EST.

In this webinar Dr Jamil Salmi poses the question What makes a world class university? The importance of tertiary education for economic growth and competitiveness is increasingly recognised not just for middle-income and advanced countries, but also for low-income ones. Access to a world-class curriculum helps develop a skilled and flexible labour force that can positively influence productive activities by creating, applying and spreading new ideas and technologies. Research universities are emerging as the central institutions of the 21st century knowledge economies.

In this context, the presentation will start by offering an operational definition of a world-class university. It will then outline and analyse possible strategies and pathways for establishing such universities. Finally it will share lessons of experience based on recent work with countries and institutions that are keen on establishing world-class universities, identifying in the process some of the challenges, costs, and risks associated with these attempts.

Jamil Salmi is a global tertiary education expert providing policy advice and consulting services to governments, universities, professional associations, multilateral development banks and bilateral cooperation agencies. Until January 2012, he was the World Bank's tertiary education coordinator.

Dr. Salmi is a member of the international advisory board of several universities in Europe, Asia, Latin America, North America and the Middle East. He is also a member of the International Advisory Network of the UK Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, and the CHEA International Quality Group Advisory Council. Dr. Salmi is Emeritus Professor of higher education policy at Diego Portales University in Chile and Research Fellow at Boston College's Center for Higher Education.

Netherland Support for the Initiative for Open Citations on the rise - 12 Jul 2017

Launched back in April, the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC) aims for 100% of citation data to be freely available for re-use. This collaboration between publishers, researchers and other stakeholders is proving to be well on the way to achieving that goal.

For users to be able to use citation data to its full potential, it needs to be machine-readable. Many publishers are already sending key information about citations within the metadata they submit to Crossref – the problem is that from the outset the default for that information has been closed.

OASPA champions openness and re-use of scholarly output and therefore is supporting I4OC which has an important objective that can be achieved by all publishers, whether or not the content of the article is open access. Once open, machine-readable citation data is free to be reused by researchers and the public, and it moves us much closer to a comprehensive and useful picture of scholarship.

US Dryad and DANS collaborate for long-term preservation of rich research data repository - 12 Jul 2017

Dryad and DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services) have announced a new collaboration to ensure long-term preservation and accessibility to curated scientific data.

The Dryad Digital Repository makes research data discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. Over 50,000 researchers who have already deposited research data with Dryad can count on continuous open access to their data packages with an extra layer of security and recoverability as a result of this partnership.

Public content on Dryad servers, currently over 15,000 data packages and 50,000 files, will be backed up in the DANS archive regularly to minimise the risk of loss or corruption of data over time. DANS will also serve as Dryad's successor archive to maintain discoverability of Dryad Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) now and into the future. Metadata will be available in open access format to all researchers using the DANS online archiving system, EASY.

US New OpenCon report focuses on designing diverse, equitable and inclusive events - 12 Jul 2017

The organisers of OpenCon, a global community and conference series that aims to empower the next generation to advance openness in research and education, has released a report focused on minimising barriers to participation in conferences that convene academic communities. The report includes relevant lessons learned in organising the first three OpenCon global conferences, a conference planning checklist based on those learnings, and a self-assessment of OpenCon's global meetings to date. The report is available at https://bit.ly/opencondeireport.

The OpenCon Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report was created to keep OpenCon—and its commitments and values—transparent and accountable to the community, while raising the visibility of these issues for other conference organisers. The report seeks to spark a conversation about how academic communities can be more diverse, equitable and inclusive, starting with the spaces where communities convene in person. These issues have been identified as fundamental by the next generation of academic professionals working to open up research and education through the OpenCon community.

The report covers decisions around choosing venues, minimising financial barriers, ensuring that voices from underrepresented and marginalized groups are prioritized and heard, and more. The document draws on lessons learned from planning OpenCon as well as external resources on accessible event planning. The report also includes detailed demographic data on OpenCon's participants, speakers, and organising committees, as well as a self-assessment based on that data.

The report is intended to be a living digital document and has been posted online using GitHub, where anyone is welcome to provide feedback, contributions, corrections, or additions. The digital version of the report is available at https://sparcopen.github.io/opencon-dei-report/ and details on how to contribute can be found at: https://github.com/sparcopen/opencon-dei-report/blob/master/Contributing.md.

OpenCon's 2017 global conference will take place in Berlin on November 11-13, and attendance is by application only. This year's application process will remain open until August 1st at 11:59pm U.S. Pacific Time. The application to attend OpenCon 2017 is available at www.opencon2017.org/apply.
