B!SON goes local

Am 8.9.2022 luden TIB und SLUB zum zweiten Community-Workshop im BMBF-geförderten Projekt „B!SON – Bibliometric and Semantic Open Access Recommender Network“ ein. Mit ca. 15 Vertreter:innen wissenschaftlicher Einrichtungen – vorrangig aus Bibliotheken – diskutierten sie die Bedarfe für einen potenziellen lokalen Einsatz des Empfehlungssystems und die Voraussetzungen, die dafür aus ihrer Sicht erfüllt sein müssen.

TIB endorses Action Plan for Diamond Open Access

TIB endorses the Action Plan for Diamond Open Access initiated by several European organizations. In doing so, it is underlining its desire to achieve a large-scale and fair transition to open access. This is necessarily dependent on an open infrastructure. The endorsement of the plan joins many related TIB activities. Action Plan for Diamond Open Access The Action Plan for Diamond Open Access has been initiated by Science Europe, cOAlition S, OPERAS, and the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche. The objective is to promote a sustainable and community-driven Diamond Open Access landscape. To this end, it is proposed to focus on four core objectives: Efficiency, e.g., through harmonization of approaches and standards and through interopeable technical systems. Quality standards, e.g. through harmonization of standards and through development of standards for all core areas of publication services, including development of self-assessment tools Capacity building, e.g. through the development of training materials, tools and guidelines, as well as through the participation of scientists; establishment of a competence center Sustainability, e.g. by protecting title rights, promoting secure governance models, identifying and enforcing transparent and sustainable business models, providing financial support for Diamond services Growing support The support for the Action Plan already goes well beyond Europe and comes, for example, from AmeliCA, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Coalition Publica, and Creative Commons. Numerous individuals also support the appeal. From our direct library environment, for example, ZB MED, SUB Hamburg and SUB Göttingen are among the signatories. They all support the goal of better support

How scientific publishers reacted to the Russo-Ukrainian war

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is negatively affecting the development of the Ukrainian academy, now and in the near future. Different academic stakeholders around the world, including scientific publishers, have reacted differently to this war, some imposing sanctions against Russia and/or providing aid to Ukraine, some refraining from such actions for various reasons. We try to take a closer look at the situation.

Language Discourse in the context of Natural Language Processing – A Quick Look

Discourse takes various modalities, structures, and mediums. Among the commonly experienced mediums are face-to-face chats, telephone conversations, television news broadcasts, radio news, talk shows, lectures, books, and scientific articles. Intriguingly, each of these forms of discourse follow a logical structural nuance depending on the medium. The advancement of the digital age including social media communication has further led to expansion of logical discourse structures. These include blog-posts, emails, websites, review sites of products, hotels, restaurants or movies, and, finally, social media streams such as Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, #slack channels, Q&A portals such as Quora or Stack Overflow, etc., with a growing list as new mediums of communication over the World Wide Web are invented.
Large and varied streams of natural discourse only mean an even larger body of research questions remains to be explored!
