Painettu kirja ei siirry itsestään digitaaliseen maailmaan, vaan vaatii monenlaista työtä. Helsingin yliopiston kirjaston bibliometriikkaan erikoistunut tietoasiantuntija ja tietokirjailija Eva Isaksson kertoo tässä blogiartikkelissa, miten hänen vuonna 1987 ilmestynyt teoksensa Nainen ja maailmankaikkeus siirtyi kaikkien saataville Helda Open Books -kokoelmaan.
University of Helsinki’s open monograph service, Helda Open Books, launched last year, boosts the availability and visibility of scientific publications. The current theme is to improve the access to textbooks through open publishing venue.
”Helda Open Books on mainio julkaisukanava, joka antaa vanhoille kirjoille uuden elämän. Loppuunmyydyt ja ehkä vaikeasti löydettävät teokset ovat siellä kaikkien helposti luettavissa”, kirjoittaa professori ja tietokirjailija Heikki Oja blogiartikkelissa, jossa hän kertoo tähtitieteen kirjojensa matkasta Helsingin yliopiston avoimeen kirjakokoelmaan. Ojan artikkeli on osa Helda Open Books -teosten vaiheita esittelevää kirjoitussarjaa.
”You should act like every measurement you start is going to continue forever, but the people in charge of the measurements and data flow would move on to different tasks the next week,” says Pasi Kolari, university researcher at the University of Helsinki. In this blog interview, Kolari, who works as a data liaison for SMEAR stations (Station for Measuring Ecosystem-Atmosphere Relations), sheds light on the real life challenges of collecting, processing and opening data. The article is part of the Think Open article series on open science research infrastructures.
While states have closed their borders in response to the coronavirus outbreak, science has opened up in a unique way. Researchers have been openly sharing their outputs and making research available across disciplines, publishers have broken down their paywalls, and new ways of creating and disseminating scientific knowledge have been developed. This blog article provides an overview of the manifestations and features of open science over the past few months.
This is a story how open access gave a new life for our book on research ethics. As everyone knows, open science and open access, in particular, is in fashion in recent research policy. However sometimes it seems that there is a lot of talk and discussion on it but not so much real doing. We will tell our about a fortunate case when we were in the right place at the right time.
Plan S, national open science coordination, EOSC… Last year was an eventful time in open science. Think Open blog’s annual open science review 2019 brings together the highlights, interesting articles and trends of the 2019.
Does self-archiving of research articles seem difficult or laborious? It’s not. Basically, there is only two things you need to remember about self-archiving at the University of Helsinki (if you want to choose the easiest way). This is the sixth part of Think Open blog’s article series on self-archiving.
The most important repository of mathematical and physical sciences already contains 1.6 million e-prints. arXiv provides a platform for sharing e-prints openly for peer review. Over the years arXiv has grown into a giant, encouraging the birth of similar repositories in other scientific fields. This has been a challenge for arXiv maintenance, both in the technical and administrative sense. In this article, bibliometrics expert Eva Isaksson describes arXiv history, development and challenges.
Many researchers would like to publish their articles openly in the University of Helsinki’s digital repository Helda, but don’t know how it happens. No fear, it is not difficult at all! In this blog text we will show you in plain language how everybody can self-archive their articles (publisher’s policies permitting) in few minutes. This is the third part of Think Open blog’s article series on self-archiving.
