Nature introduce paper-sharing software

Macmillan publishers are introducing an new feature that will allow researchers to share articles published in many of their journals, including Nature.  

Using ReadCube software (part owned by MacMillan), researchers will be able to share links to journal papers for personal or non-commercial use.  The shared articles will be read-only (they can't be printed or saved).  Find out more in this Times Higher Education article or in this press release.

Whilst this may make it easier for academics to share research, some critics argue that the move dilutes true open-access due to the restrictions placed on printing and saving, and the fact that papers can only be shared by participating media outlets and researchers with a subscription (personal or institutional) to the journals in question.  

The paper-sharing initiative is a pilot, which Macmillan will review over the coming year.

Spotlight on IEEE Xplore

The IEEE Xplore database covers all areas of technology and you can use it to find full text papers and ebooks. In addition to IEEE publications, it includes includes over 200,000 IET papers, Bells Lab Technical Journal and MIT ebooks. We have recently added a subscription to IEEE Smart Grid Research which provides access to Smart Grid Vision and Research documents.  

At a recent awareness session I found out a number of useful hints and tips for successful searching using IEEE Xplore:

Searching:
  • Using Advanced Search allows you to search the full text of a document using key words, in addition to the key words it has been indexed by. This will enable you to search within the conclusion of a paper for new ideas or areas for further research.
  • Sometimes you might want to search for a phrase rather than individual words. You can do this by enclosing your phrase using "quotation marks". 
  • You can also use the wild card * at the end or beginning of a word to find all versions of it e.g. build* finds building, builds, building, builder.
Working with your results:
  • If you have lots of results you can add additional key words at any time using the "Search within results" box on the left side of the page.
  • Your results will be listed in order of relevance but you can sort your results by the number of citations. This will enable you to see influential papers published in your field. 
  • Click on the title of a paper to find out more about it. Here you will be able to view an abstract, key words, author details, references and citations.
  • The HTML view of a paper allows you to jump to particular sections of a document. You can also view individual figures and diagrams found within the paper.

More information about what is available within IEEE Xplore can be found on the Library web pages: IEEE Xplore Digital Library

To access this resource search for "IEEE Xplore" using the "University Collections" search in StarPlus. Follow the "View it" links to access the database. You may be prompted to log into MUSE if you are not already logged in.

Researching your first independent project: hands-on workshop

Do you need to find literature for your first independent research project? 
Not sure where to start? 
Tried searching but retrieving too many or too few results? 

Then come along to a hands-on Searching for Researching workshop at 301: Student Skills and Development Centre.

Run by the University Library, this workshop will show you how to find the best resources for your first research project. You will learn about different information sources and how to create an effective search strategy to produce a manageable set of relevant results. You will also consider evaluating information, referencing and plagiarism - making sure you use your own ideas and reference the work of others properly.

There are 3 places are still available on the workshop TOMORROW at 12. Book your place: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/ssid/301/services/workshops/searching

Predatory Publishers

Open access publishing is a great way for researchers to disseminate their research, raise their profile and increase their citations.  

Research can be published in two ways: 

  • Green route - authors self-archive their research articles or data in an institutional repository such as White Rose Research Online (WRRO) or a central repository such as Europe PubMedCentral, ArXiv etc. 
  • Gold Route - authors publish in a peer-reviewed Open Access journal that provides immediate free access to all of its articles from the journal website. This usually requires the payment of an Article Processing Charge (APC) to the publisher.

Unfortunately in recent years some bogus publishers have appeared, who aim to exploit the Gold publishing model.  These 'predatory publishers' target researchers with offers to publish their work in exchange for fees, but without providing the peer-review services offered by established scholarly open-access journals.  These bogus publishers and journals are often very convincing, using fabricated impact factors and false claims of authenticity.

So how can you tell if an open access journal of publisher is reputable or not?  

If you're unsure, you can contact the University's Open Access team for advice or assistance.

Raising your profile as an early career researcher

If you're just starting out in your research career, it can be difficult to get your work noticed.   It can take years to get your papers published in a big name journal, and even longer to build up citation counts, which are used throughout many areas of academia as a measure of impact or influence.  This Nature paper explores some surprising facts about citation counts, and touches on some of the drawbacks of citations as a measure of impact.  

But what are the alternatives?   Open access publishing, where your papers are made freely available on the open web, may be one way to get people talking about your research.  This research paper by Euan Adie suggests that open access papers are discussed and shared more widely online than those published in subscription-only journals.   This research suggests that open access papers are more likely to be cited  (up to 600% more likely, according to some studies).

When it comes to tracking or demonstrating the reach and influence of your research, there are an increasing number of choices available.  Altmetrics measure the online attention your work receives, by tracking Mendeley shares, tweets, blog posts and more. Altmetrics can be applied not just to research papers, but to any data sets, software, slides, posters or videos you have produced.  In this blog post, Stacy Konkiel from Impactstory explores the use of altmetrics to measure and demonstrate the impact of open science.  

So if you are engaged in research, you may find that it's worth exploring how open access and altmetrics can help you to get people talking about your work.

Zenodo: open access science repository

Making your research outputs available on the web is a great way to boost citations, raise your profile and increase the reach and impact of your work.  Uploading your work to an open access repository is a simple and reliable way to do this. 

Zenodo is an open science repository, developed at CERN.  Zenodo enables researchers to share and preserve any research outputs in any size, any format and from any science.  This could include research data, software, images, posters, presentations, or research papers. 

Uploads are stored safely in the same cloud infrastructure used for research data from CERN's Large Hadron Collider.  Uploads will get a free DOI (digital object identifier) - ensuring that your research can be reliably and easily identified and cited.

Visit Zenodo.org to start searching the repository or sign up to upload your own work.

No More Fines

No More Fines


We know you hate receiving fines, and we're not keen on giving them either, so we're trialing a new No Fines policy.  When you borrow books, we'll automatically renew them for you until someone else requests them - if this happens we'll give you a couple of days to bring them back to us.

If you delay, we won't fine you, but you won't be able to take out anything else until you bring the requested books back.


Let us know what you think about the new No Fines system by visiting our webpages.



The Library now subscribes to all Nature Journals

In November last year, The University Library conducted a survey for staff and students. 

Many of our customers commented that although we had access to some Nature journals, we did not subscribe to some important titles.

After negotiations with the publisher we now have a subscription to the Nature Publishing Group (NPG) complete collection. This includes all ejournals published by NPG.

View a full list of titles and access the Nature website

To access individual titles, please search for them on StarPlus, the library catalogue (accessible through myServices in MUSE - remember to log in as a University member).

Free to publish in Chemical Science

Chemical Science is the flagship journal from the Royal Society of Chemistry, with an impact factor of 8.31 (placing it amongst the best journals in its category).

It's also open access, which means the research it publishes is available to all, free of charge.

Some open access journals charge authors money for publishing their research - these charges are known as Article Publishing Charges or APCs.  

Chemical Science has waived APCs for at least the next two years, meaning that researchers can publish their work for free, regardless of their funding status.

More information can be found on the Royal Society of Chemistry website
