ScholComm on the Edge: GlassTree and GlassLeaf - publishing services for academics

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-02-14 20:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

ScholComm on the Edge is a monthly discussion forum about emerging trends and technologies in scholarly communication.

For the February ScholComm on the Edge discussion, we'll be looking at some new publishing services aimed at academics: GlassTree https://glasstree.com/ and GlassLeaf https://services.glasstree.com/

These are services spun off local self-publishing company Lulu, and are trying to create a market where academic authors will self-publish, hiring companies like this to perform publishing services, but then keeping control over their works for themselves, to release them as open access or earn more money from their publications.

There's a good blog post about this from the Director of Publishing Strategy at Virginia Tech’s University Libraries:

Is There a Place for DIY in Scholarly Publishing? Lulu Says Yes (and may not be wrong)
https://blogs.lt.vt.edu/openvt/2016/12/22/is-there-a-place-for-diy-in-scholarly-publishing-lulu-says-yes-and-may-not-be-wrong/

On February 14 at 3pm, in the Edge Workshop Room, we'll be joined by Daniel Berze, Senior Vice President of Academic Publishing at GlassTree (https://glasstree.com/about/) and Kayci Wyatt, manager of publishing services at GlassLeaf. They will talk for about 15 minutes about their companies and the services they provide, and then the rest of the time will be open discussion about emerging academic publishing models, and how these might fit with the models academic libraries and academic authors are used to.

SSRI~ Workshop: Qualitative Data Collection &amp; Management

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
Qualitative Data Collection & Management-This workshop provides an introduction to a range of qualitative research methods as well as an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. Qualitative research methods, including in-depth interviews, focus groups, archival analysis, and participant observation, vary considerably in the resources and time required to execute them reliably, and in the types of data they generate. Which data collection techniques are appropriate to which kinds of research questions and projects, and how do you execute these methods well? How are issues of reliability and validity considered and weighed in qualitative research? We will also explore different ways of managing your data prior to commencing data collection in order to facilitate the transition to data analysis. Some time will be given to the role of NVivo software in facilitating data management and preparing for data analysis. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

Compared to survey research, data management strategies in qualitative research are often ad-hoc, and produced after the data collection process has been completed. Different qualitative methods produce different types of data and require different analytical approaches, yet there are several strategies worth considering for managing your data and can be planned and deployed prior to commencing data collection in order to facilitate the transition from data collection to data analysis. This workshop will cover a range of qualitative data management strategies in order to help researchers plan for data collection, or to help researchers manage data during or after the collection process. Some time will be given to the role of NVivo software in facilitating data management and preparing for data analysis.

This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys.
