Clifford Lynch, Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), will be speaking at UT Austin about Evolving Scholarly Practice and the New Challenges for Scholarly Communication on Thursday, Sept. 22nd, at 10:00am in PCL Learning Lab 1. Dr. Lynch is a nationally recognized leader on information policy and access issues.
Over 200,000 articles are downloaded every day from Sci-Hub, a "flamboyantly illegal" site in Russia that has amassed over 47 million journal articles and 1.5 million books by "borrowing" credentials from people at thousands of subscribing institutions - including UT Austin. This essay in the Chronicle of Higher Education wonders how ethical this approach is given the almost complete dysfunction of the modern scholarly publishing system and the glaring inequities it has spawned in one's access to needed information. (Ironically yet predictably, the essay is behind a paywall, and restricted to UT readers.)
"ChemRxiv is expected to follow the established models of arXiv in physics and bioRxiv in the life sciences by enabling researchers working across diverse areas of inquiry to share early results and data with their scientist-colleagues ahead of formal peer review and publication. Preprints are fully citable and are freely accessible preliminary communications, aimed to advance the pace of scientific discovery and information dissemination." (from Press Release)
