DepositOpening the Black Box of Scholarly Communication Funding: A Public Data Infrastructure for Financial Flows in Academic Publishing

‘Public access to publicly funded research’ has been one of the rallying calls of the global open access movement. Governments and public institutions around the world have mandated that publications supported by public funding sources should be publicly accessible. Publishers are experimenting with new models to widen access. Yet financial flows underpinning scholarly publishing remain complex and opaque. In this article we present work to trace and reassemble a picture of financial flows around the publication of journals in the UK in the midst of a national shift towards open access. We contend that the current lack of financial transparency around scholarly communication is an obstacle to evidence-based policy-making – leaving researchers, decision-makers and institutions in the dark about the ­systemic implications of new financial models. We conclude that ­obtaining a more joined up picture of financial flows is vital as a means for researchers, institutions and others to understand and shape changes to the sociotechnical systems that underpin scholarly communication.

…Debates in the Digital Humanities. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2012.

This collection of essays presents perspectives on the debates that have surrounded the recent emergence of the digital humanities as an academic discipline. Among the issues addressed by over thirty prominent digital humanities scholars are the struggles to define the field; the relationship of DH to theory; the prospects for new forms of scholarship and new models of scholarly communication; the past, present, and future directions of DH; the status of pedagogy within the field; the range of possible cultural approaches to DH; the methodologies that define DH inquiry; and the institutional ramifications of DH.
An interactive, open-access, social edition of the text, created by the GC Digital Scholarship Lab in partnership with the University of Minnesota Press, was released in January 2013: http://dhdebates.gc.cuny.e…
