Announcements / Administrivia:

Catherine Mitchell and Erich van Rijn with more on the UC publishing inventory project. The project plan is available in Google Docs. Based on 2007 SLASIAC report (which Erich will forward) on what "UC as publisher" looks like. This report updates that information, including at the department level. 300+ publication programs at various states of activity. Almost finished. Challenge: every time we want to find these data, it's a very manual process and lots of hours. There might be an unofficial book series by one faculty member, or an actual book series that has complicated rights management. Question for us: Would a relational database be more useful than these reports? Entered at the campus level. Who would be the right campus people to work on it? And are there tools to make this easier? Or that would be interoperable with other systems, especially those related to P&T? 

Deep-Dive topics this month = deep dive planning

From Mary Linn about presidential OA policy rollout - potential deep dive topic. UCI have been rolling in groups of 800 or so people at a time.

Tim's list (see email from 1/29) - favorites within/variations on that list:

First are some things I'd be interested in diving into more (but someone else probably lead): 

- the current open poll which will assess impact of Elsevier cancellation (when the results are in) 

- ongoing developments with court cases that potentially affect our work, like the sovereign immunity case 

- ongoing developments with relevant legislation/regulation affecting us, like CASE Act, California-specific legislation, OSTP, etc. 

Then some things I'd be up for discussing if people are interested (and the timing fits):

- any relevant outcomes from our Building Legal Literacies for Text Data Mining Institute (after June)

- relevant outcomes from UCB’s working group on developing criteria for open access investments (tentatively April) STAR will report to SCLG, then we need to decide what can be shared.

- updates from our work on UCB's Digital Lifecycle Program rights workflows (copyright, contracts/gift agreements, privacy, ethics)

Planning for a joint conversation with the Data CKG: Christy & Brianna. Let's try to meet together next time? Digital scholarship might need their own CKG? Christy will talk to them and share outcomes from unconference last week, Katie will share a doodle poll to see which hour works.

Other topics:

Updates from crossover groups

  1. OSC: Met 1/28. Have a new member, Dennis Ventry, new chair of UCOLASC. Got updates on OSC working groups, comments process for potential OSTP no-embargo public access policy,  RIMS committee, and publisher negotiations. OSC site navigation has been updated. Discussed whether there would be a way to try to increase the odds that our next UC president would be a supporter of open access & scholarly communication reform.
  2. Data Curation CKG: In person meeting next week, Feb 25 at UCD. Unconference, so agenda can be shared afterwards.
  3. STAR Team:  

Round-robin updates

  1. UCB  -  Our schol-comm office hosted a panel discussion Publish or Perish Reframed: Navigating the New Landscape of Scholarly Publishing. Here's the report back on it. Rachael Samberg and I presented from the Library. We had remarks from a faculty member about his experience with Open Access and negotiating better © terms, and also the Vice Provost for the Faculty (talking about publishing in relation to promotion and tenure). We were happy with the content, questions, and turnout. 
  2. UCD - Enrolled in CopyrightX online course with Harvard
  3. UCI - Irvine introduced Overleaf Professional for the campus starting February 1 with a new LibGuide, landing page, and emails to current subscribers.  Meetings with Office of Research and Sponsored Projects Administration to promote ORCID with postdocs and faculty engaged with sponsored research.  Two searches for Data Curation and Head, Digital Scholarship Services are ongoing. Meeting scheduled for library administration on March 19 with Brian Nosek, Director of Center for Open Science.
