Despite its name, OSF is not discipline specific and integrates with many existing scholarly tools such as Zotero, DataCite and GitHUb rather than duplicating services. The Medical Sciences Division is funding these activities to develop case studies exploring how researchers can be supported in the areas of open science and open publishing, in a sustainable way and that encourages high quality and collaborative research practices. OSF facilities will be available to all members of the University, via Oxford SSO provided that they have an ORCID linked to their account.
In response to attendee feedback, the Bodleian libraries will soon offer an improved series of sessions covering open access. Sessions will be targeted to different levels of knowledge and interest in open access publishing. If you’re feeling a little confused about what ‘open access’ means, are stumped by how to go about getting your research published in an open access format, or if you want to discuss new developments in open scholarship, we have the right session for you!
Fundamentals of Open Access – This will cover the basic principles of open access, such as what it means and who it applies to. Recommended for new starters or those new to open access publishing. This session will run every other month.
Logistics of Open Scholarship – This will cover the practical ‘how to’ of open scholarship such as how to deposit your publications and data and how to apply for funding to cover open access publication costs. This session will run every other month.
Forum of Open Scholarship – This session is intended for advocates and administrators involved in open scholarship. These termly forums will discus forthcoming (and current) challenges and opportunities in open scholarship. It will be a space where people can ask questions and address ‘what’s happening’ for researchers and research support staff.
Each session will be recorded for the benefit of those who are unable to attend in person. All sessions will be advertised and can be booked through the iSkills Information Skills programme website – https://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/ask/workshops#/
The Bodleian Libraries, along with all departments in the University, are under increased financial pressure and constraints.
We are faced with consistently above-inflation price rises for online journals. As a result, we don’t renew any subscription without a careful review of usage and cost. We want to make renewal decisions in partnership and consultation with our users. We want to minimise the impact of any possible cuts, making sure there is the necessary support for learning, research, and teaching within the MSD. The following online journals are now due for renewal. They have had very low usage in 2021-22.
Clinics in Colon and Rectal Surgery
Digestive Disease Interventions
Journal of Hip Surgery
International Journal of Angiology
Journal of Pediatric Epilepsy
Journal of Pediatric Genetics
Journal of Pediatric Infectious Diseases
Journal of Pediatric Intensive Care
Journal of Pediatric Neurology
Journal of Wrist Surgery
Journal of Hand and Microsurgery
Journal of the American Academy of Audiology
RöFo – Fortschritte auf dem Gebiete der Röntgenstrahlen und der bildgebenden Verfahren
Seminars in Interventional Radiology
Seminars in Plastic Surgery
TumorDiagnostik & Therapie
Ultraschall in der Medizin – European Journal of Ultrasound
Zeitschrift für Gastroenterologie
We’d welcome any feedback you may have on the importance of these titles to your work. Please send your comments to email@example.com by Friday 2 December 2022.
We would like to remind all our readers that the Radcliffe Science Library has a low-cost 3D printing service which is available to all members of the University. We also have 3D scanning equipment for the creation of virtual 3D objects.
We now have online access to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) meeting papers. These are papers from AIAA’s Forums and supported conferences covering every aspect of aerospace – approximately 5,000 are published every year. Our subscription includes the complete archive which provides access to historical papers published by AIAA from 1963 up to the current year.
The Bodleian Libraries have signed a new deal for Optica journals.
This agreement allows University of Oxford corresponding authors to publish research articles and review articles in hybrid and fully OA journals. Authors must use their Oxford University email address when submitting articles to the journal, and choose the CC BY publication licence.
The UpToDate subscription will expire on 31 July and due to the very high cost it has unfortunately not been possible to renew the subscription.
If you use UpToDate to log and redeem CPD points as evidence of your personal CPD, it is important that you download these CPD points before that date if you would like to evidence them in your portfolio. Instructions on how to do this are available on the Bodleian Libraries website.
