New Look, Enhanced Services for eScholarship
UC’s open access digital publishing service launches new site October 19

eScholarship (www.escholarship.org <http://www.escholarship.org/> ) launches a redesigned website October 19, with a substantial array of digital publishing services for the University of California scholarly community and a dynamic research platform for scholars worldwide.
Previously known as UC’s eScholarship Repository, the new eScholarship offers a robust scholarly publishing platform that enables departments, research units, publishing programs, and individual scholars associated with the University of California to have direct control over the creation and dissemination of the full range of their scholarship.

“Our relaunch of eScholarship reflects the enormous value we see in recasting the institutional repository as an open access publisher,” says Catherine Mitchell, Director of the Publishing Group at the California Digital Library. “There is significant need across the University of California campuses for a sustainable infrastructure to support the publication and dissemination of research. In our efforts to respond to this need, we have watched our institutional repository evolve into a dynamic platform for the original publication of scholarly work.”
eScholarship’s relaunch coincides with the first international Open Access Week (October 19 – 23), an event that marks the growing trend toward providing unfettered access to academic research and publications throughout the world.

eScholarship publication types
UC-affiliated scholars, editors, and research unit administrators can publish the following original works in eScholarship:

  • Journals
  • Books
  • Working Papers
  • Conference Proceedings
  • Seminar/Paper Series


eScholarship also continues to provide deposit and dissemination services for previously published articles or “postprints.”

New services, enhanced functionality

The relaunch of eScholarship brings new opportunities for digital publishing to the University of California and offers substantially improved services for previously supported publication types.
Books published in eScholarship are now eligible for a combined digital/print publication service, courtesy of UC Publishing Services (UCPubS), a joint program of UC Press and the California Digital Library. In addition, eScholarship now offers conference lifecycle support, including mechanisms for proposal submission, program display, and the ultimate publication of proceedings.
Much of the site redesign has been focused on improving the quality of access to eScholarship publications. The site is optimized for Google searches; PDFs can be viewed in their entirety without download; and research can be shared easily through third party social networking sites and RSS feeds.
Likewise, the ability to locate relevant scholarship within the new site is greatly improved as a result of the implementation of:

  • a highly developed similar items finder
  • visual snippets of keywords within documents (KWIC Pics) accessible from the search results page
  • facets for narrowing search results by UC campus, discipline, and peer review–status
  • keyword search capability within documents


These new services and tools all add up to a vastly enhanced experience for authors, editors, and publishing program directors – and for the researchers who seek out their work.

What can UC authors expect from publishing with eScholarship?

  • Digital publication of original scholarship
  • Digital dissemination of previously published materials
  • Manuscript and peer-review management systems
  • Significant reduction in time to publication
  • Author retention of copyright
  • Clear institutional affiliation and context
  • Increased citation rates <http://www.openoasis.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=560&Itemid=391> *
  • Perpetual access and preservation services
  • Full-text search and display
  • Comprehensive usage data
  • Free setup, training, and publishing support

Who is using eScholarship?
Among its many services, eScholarship supports the original publication of more than 20 peer-reviewed journals, including:

  • California Agriculture (UC Davis)
  • Journal of Transnational American Studies (UC Santa Barbara)
  • Nutrition Bytes (UCLA)
  • Places (UC Berkeley)
  • San Francisco Estuary and Watershed Science (UC Davis)
  • Western Journal of Emergency Medicine (UC Irvine)


“We have used eScholarship to manage, edit, and publish the online journal San Francisco Estuary and Watershed Science,” says Dr. Samuel N. Luoma, SFEWS Editor-in-Chief. “As a source of peer-reviewed, credible, and objective information, SFEWS is recognized by all stakeholders as playing an important role in understanding California’s water issues. We simply could not have succeeded in bringing this information to scientists, the public, and policy makers without the open access and high degree of professionalism provided by eScholarship. eScholarship is a service of inestimable value to the UC scholarly community, Californians in general, and the world.”
eScholarship also provides access to publications from nearly 250 research units and publishing programs across UC, including:

  • Center for Conservation Biology (UC Riverside)
  • Center for the Study of Democracy (UC Irvine)
  • Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education (UCSF)
  • Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities (UC Berkeley)
  • International and Area Studies Publications (UC Berkeley)
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Scripps Institution of Oceanography (UC San Diego)
  • Santa Cruz Center for International Economics (UC Santa Cruz)


“eScholarship is central to our publishing mission, offering a level of access, discoverability, and online permanence that traditional publishers cannot match,” says Nathan MacBrien, Publications Director, International and Area Studies Publications, UC Berkeley. “Anyone, anywhere in the world, with an Internet connection can read our books, and that is particularly important for scholars in developing countries where English-language books are difficult to come by.”

About eScholarship
Initiated in 2002 as a collaborative development effort between the Berkeley Electronic Press and the California Digital Library, eScholarship now houses over 30,000 publications with more than 9 million downloads to date. eScholarship offers the UC academic community a robust alternative to traditional scholarly publishing channels, supporting the dissemination of UC research at all stages of the scholarly lifecycle to all corners of the world. The rate of usage of these materials has grown dramatically in the past 7 years, now often exceeding 170,000 full-text downloads per month.

eScholarship is a project of the Publishing Group of the California Digital Library and a showcase for the group’s open source search and display technology development. eScholarship’s publication submission system was originally developed and is still maintained by the Berkeley Electronic Press.

Enabling Open Scholarship (EOS) LAUNCHES NEW ORGANISATION FOR INSTITUTIONAL DIRECTORS WORLDWIDE

Enabling Open Scholarship (EOS) LAUNCHES NEW ORGANISATION FOR INSTITUTIONAL DIRECTORS WORLDWIDE

Liege, Belgium
23 September 2009
——————————————————

ENABLING OPEN SCHOLARSHIP (EOS), a new organisation for senior management in universities and research institutions, has been launched today.

The context in which EOS has been established is that of increasing interest from governments, funders and the research community itself in opening up the way research is carried out and communicated. This interest is complemented by new research practices and processes that can work effectively only
in an open, collaborative environment.

As we rapidly approach 100 formal, mandatory, policies on Open Access from universities, research institutes and research funders a group of senior directors of universities and research institutes have come together to launch a new forum for the promotion of the principles and practices of open
scholarship.

The aim of Enabling Open Scholarship (EOS) is to further the opening up of scholarship and research that we are now seeing as a natural part of ‘big science’ and through the growing interest from the research community in open access, open education, open science and open innovation. These, and other, ‘open’ approaches to scholarship are changing the way research and learning are done and will be performed in the future.

Enabling Open Scholarship (EOS) provides the higher education and research sectors around the world with information on developments and with advice and guidance on implementing policies and processes that encourage the opening up of scholarship. It also provides a forum for discussion and debate amongst its members and will be taking that discussion into the wider community.

EOS membership is for senior institutional managers who have an interest in — and wish to help develop thinking on — strategies for promoting open scholarship to the academy as a whole and to society at large.

The EOS website is a resource open to all. It provides background information, data and guidance material on open scholarship-related issues. In a limited access area, members can find announcements, news and discussions.

EOS offers an outreach service to universities and research institutes — whether members or not — that need help, advice, guidance or information on open scholarship issues. We do this through our website and also by providing information on an individual basis to institutions that need it.

The EOS board is composed of people who have personally designed or instigated the kinds of changes in their own institutions that herald the benefits of the open scholarly communication system of the future. Now this expertise is available for others to tap into.

The current EOS board comprises:
• Bernard RENTIER (Chairman), Rector of the University of Liege, Belgium
• Tom COCHRANE, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia
• William DAR, Director General of the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Hyderabad, India
• Stevan HARNAD, Canada Research Chair, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Montreal, Quebec
• Keith JEFFERY, Director of IT and International Strategy at the Science & Technology Facilities Council, Swindon, UK
• Sijbolt NOORDA, President of VSNU, the Association of Dutch Research Universities
• Stuart SHIEBER, James O. Welch, Jr. and Virginia B. Welch Professor of Computer Science in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at
Harvard University and Director of Harvard’s Office of Scholarly Communication
• Ian SIMPSON, Deputy Principal for Research and Knowledge Transfer, and Professor of Environmental Science, University of Stirling, UK
• Peter SUBER, Berkman Center for Internet & Society, Harvard University, Cambridge, USA
• John WILLINSKY, Khosla Family Professor of Education at Stanford University and director of the Public Knowledge Project at the University of
British Columbia and Simon Fraser University, USA
• Alma SWAN (Convenor/Coordinateur), Director of Key Perspectives Ltd, Truro, UK

“The world of research is changing and universities and other research-based institutions must drive the change, not sit back and let it happen. Having embarked upon implementing changes in thinking and practice at my own university, I want to encourage others in my position to join the discussion and help lead the way to a better future,” said Professor Bernard Rentier. “We will be reaching out to universities and research institutes across the world to invite them to play an active role in building better systems of scholarship for the future. EOS will provide the forum and the voice for the research community on open scholarship issues and represents a very valuable resource for those who want to join in this endeavour”.

“The benefits of open access and open scholarship have been clearly demonstrated for individuals, institutions and the public,” said Professor Keith Jeffery. “EOS will be there to provide information and guidance from those who have already had experience of making the changes needed.”

Dr William Dar said, “Open scholarship benefits the whole world’s science, not just that of the western world. It enables the free flow of research information between north and south, east and west, helping research to progress much more effectively. EOS will be very valuable in advancing this process and improving the way science is carried out across the globe”.
