Seeking Stories on Innovative Publishing Projects for the OSC Blog
Have you caught wind of an exciting open access publishing project on your campus? If so, the “Innovative Publishing Models” working group of the Office of Scholarly Communication (OSC) wants to hear from you! We are collecting examples of recent and creative open-access publishing projects at UC to highlight on the “OA Innovations @ UC” page of the OSC website.
We welcome any nominations of work by UC scholars. Projects can be highlighted as stories or interviews for the OSC blog. Or, if you prefer simply to draw our attention to the work, that’s fine too. Three previous stories focused on:
- Support for publishing software and data research outputs via an integration of Dryad and Zenodo;
- The development of a clinical resource, Ultrasound in Resource-Limited Settings: A Case-Based, Open Access Text, that uses text and animated GIFs to provide diagnostic guidance for areas of the world with bandwidth limitations;
- The launch of a new mathematics journal, Combinatorial Theory, with an experimental, distributed open-access funding model.
To learn more about this initiative and what might qualify as an “innovative publishing” project, view our guidelines and goals for this effort.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of any proposed project and indicate whether you would like to write about it for the OSC site, and share this request with others in your library who may be interested. Note: while we are eager to learn more about the innovative work happening on your campus, we may not be able to feature all proposals.
