Posted by: Hillary Corbett

Researchers at Northestern University published 29 articles in open-access scholarly journals in 2011. By choosing open access journals over those that are restricted to readers with subscriptions, our researchers are helping to increase knowledge on a global level. In fact, more Northeastern authors published in the open-access journal PLoS ONE than in any other journal, open or subscription-based, in 2011.

Watch for my next post on open-access books produced by Northeastern authors in 2011! For more information about Open Access and why it’s important, check out our research guide on the topic.

Next time you’re writing a paper, putting together a presentation, uploading a video to YouTube, or updating your website, why not tell your audience that you’ve decided to expand access to your work? With a Creative Commons license, you keep your copyright but allow people to copy and distribute your work provided they give you credit — and only on the conditions you specify.

If you have a PC and use Microsoft Office products like Word and PowerPoint, you can get a free add-in that makes it easy to include a Creative Commons license. Read more about it and download the add-in here:

To include CC licenses elsewhere (anywhere!), the Creative Commons license chooser offers the ability to select the criteria you want your license to include and then provides you with the relevant text and an image to use (including HTML for use on the web). In addition, Creative Commons offers best practices for marking your work as CC-licensed in a variety of formats, including images and video. Sites like YouTube and Flickr also offer the option of applying a Creative Commons license when you upload your stuff.

Open Access Week event: Open Textbooks and Flat World Knowledge – Thursday at 10:30 a.m.

Posted by: Hillary Corbett

Join us on Thursday, October 27, at 10:30 a.m. in 90 Snell Library for a presentation on open textbooks. Michael Boezi, editorial director of Flat World Knowledge, the leading commercial publisher of open textbooks, will speak on “Keeping Education Accessible: The Textbook Affordability Crisis and Emerging Open Solutions.
High textbook prices increasingly challenge the mission of many institutions to provide affordable, quality education. The emerging trend of open content is reshaping the publishing landscape, allowing for the rise of new business models that:

  1. significantly reduce the cost of high-quality learning materials, and thereby the overall cost of education;
  2. meet the growing demand for alternate, flexible formats that keep pace with the different ways we consume information; and
  3. provide authors with a forward-looking compensation model.

Boezi will discuss the emerging trend of open content, examining the advantages (and challenges) of “open” as it relates to textbooks, as well as the economic, social, and technology drivers that are transforming education and propelling the growth of free, low-cost, and open alternatives to expensive, traditional college textbooks.

Refreshments will be served.

Join us on Wednesday at 1:30 in Snell Library room 421 for a panel discussion that is sure to engage both students and their instructors. Three Northeastern faculty members – Jeff Howe (Journalism), Joseph Reagle (Communication), and Heidi Wilkes (CPS) – will discuss Wikipedia, crowdsourcing, and social networking tools as components of the research process. There will be plenty of time for audience discussion afterwards.

⇒ Read an interview with Jeff Howe in the News@Northeastern, September 8, 2011: “The power of the ‘Crowd’”

⇒ Watch the trailer for Jeff Howe’s book, Crowdsourcing: Why the Power of the Crowd is Driving the Future of Business.

⇒ Read an interview with Joseph Reagle in the News@Northeastern, August 16, 2011: “Cultural connections, a click away”

⇒ Watch a video of Reagle produced by the News: Joseph Reagle speaking on Wikipedia

Join us at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 25, in 90 Snell Library for a webcast on open science, hosted by the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

Michael Nielsen, author and an advocate of open science, will discuss opportunities for collaboration in the sciences using online tools such as blogs and wikis. In particular, the Polymath Project illustrates the possibility that such tools can be used to transform the way we work together to make scientific discoveries. Audience members will have the ability to participate in discussion via Twitter.

More information about the event is available here. For a full schedule of our Open Access Week events, visit our News & Events page.
