Did you know that more than 13% of IUPUI’s journals articles were published in open access journals in 2016?  Most of these articles required an article processing charge (APC) after peer review and acceptance and most were supported by research grants.

Have you ever wondered if any authors on your campus are choosing open access journals for their articles? Or, if you've seen a few OA journal articles with your faculty members listed as authors, have you wondered how much of the campus article literature is published in OA journals?Sadly, these are not easy questions to answer.

For my contribution to blog posts for Open Access Week 2016, I wanted to write down some ideas I have had floating in my head in an attempt to better articulate them. In the course of my career in Digital Humanities, one of the largest stumbling blocks to using digital primary source material is finding those materials already processed into...

The Figshare Report released yesterday The State of Open Data inspired me to reflect on how researchers at IUPUI are sharing their data. Below, I describe three increasingly common scenarios for data sharing, including common considerations - what data, when, how/where, and what permissions.Scenario 1: A political science researcher is...
