ScholarsArchive saw incredible growth in 2019 as many new works, journals, and collections were added to BYU’s Institutional Repository.
Happy new year! 2018 was a great year for ScholarsArchive, Brigham Young University’s Institutional Repository.
This week, October 22-28, is International Open Access Week (sponsored by SPARC) and this year’s theme is “Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge.” Open Access is important to libraries, as a main goal of any library is to make knowledge openly available to patrons. The Harold B. Lee Library has made Open Access a major focus for the 2018-2019 school year.
Life in the ScholarsArchive office has been especially busy as we’ve migrated much of our content from CONTENTdm to Digital Commons. Since migration began in July 2014, we have received incredible visibility to BYU scholarly works. Below are some highlights from the 2014 end-of-year statistics.
In May, we introduced the concept of Open Access (OA). The purpose of OA is to empower researchers to share their findings with a broader audience, thus supporting the purpose of research: to share and grow knowledge.
We’re getting very close to launching our new ScholarsArchive site using the Digital Commons software platform and wanted to give you a preview of a few changes you can expect.
Open Access (OA) is a hot topic in the world of scholarly communication these days. Why should we care? The purpose of OA is to empower researchers to share their findings with a broader audience, thus supporting the purpose of research: to share and grow knowledge. Below is a brief explanation of Open Access, plus some additional resources to learn more. Watch for more in-depth explanations in future blog posts.
A research collection curated by one of our librarians, Annick Houzé, has been added to ScholarsArchive! This fascinating collection consists of French photographs depicting civilian and military life covering the time periods from 1860 to 1954. Documents, both military and civilian, will soon be added to the collection, along with French transcriptions. The project director is Becky McKown and transcriptions and translations are written by Mark Burtenshaw. Click here to explore the collection.
Many authors wonder what the difference is between a “pre-print” and a “post-print”. Publishers often specify which version of a paper is allowed in a repository, like ScholarsArchive.
