Open Access Dissertation - ProQuest - "This quantitative study investigated the interrelationships among faculty researchers, publishers, librarians, and academic administrators when dealing with the open access of scholarly research. This study sought to identify the nature of any relationship between the perceived attitudes and actions of academic administrators and an institution's commitment to open access as reported by library directors.

Hintergrundinformationen zur Schließung des kanadischen Open-Access-Journals Open Medicine.

"Academic medicine has been slow to recognize the importance of stepping out of the comfort zone of traditional publishing: unfortunately, the benefits of disseminating information freely still takes second place to the allure of publishing in a prestigious forum, however difficult that forum may be for readers to access."

Why I simply love Zotero

Citation management in the cloud
It's hard for me to imagine doing research without using Zotero. Unlike other citation management programmes, Zotero to a large extent lives in the cloud. It it is a plugin for Firefox that syncs across all my devices (I can even consult it on my tablet, although I rarely do). Once the extension is active, Zotero reveals a blue or yellow button next to the URL. Items from Google books, +Google Scholar and many library catalogues can be added with a single mouse click. It's magic!  Also websites with properly embedded metadata (Drupal, Wikipedia, ...) and many other types of information can be stored or even archived via a snapshot. The information stored in the database can be exported in all official formatting styles (like MLA, Harvard or Chicago style etc).

Zotero is fit for team work
I maintain a number of "groups". These are online (public or private) outputs of the metadata I collect in my database, nothing more. In principle, other people could join the public groups and add items to these groups. This never happens, but that is not my (main) aim. I use these groups to share bibliographies in various formats. With three lines of code, I can share  subcollections on websites related to my research projects or the I networks am involved in. Main advantage: I can add new items without having to update the website itself.

Zotero vs. Endnote, Mendeley
I am aware that there are quite a few citation management systems that have similar functionalities. Endnote seems clunkier to me and it is not free. Zotero is not only open source, it is also very versatile: You can even drag any item directly into +Google Drive Docs (more about that later).

Zotero 4 Humanities
People may wonder why I take time to curate bibliographical information, especially since these are just the metadata (and not
the link to the actual full text files themselves, at least not in my public groups). I think especially academics in the humanities have a stake in this. We produce quite some book chapters in edited collections, a model of publication specific to the humanities. But these are not properly indexed by search engines. Google Scholar does a tremendous job by tracking citations to books and journal articles (although it is very prone to errors and mischief). But individual chapters are not properly recognized. Microsoft Academic Search is not Microsoft's most prominent database. It has some potential, but is even more harsh on the  humanities' publication channels: It only accepts conferences or "journal articles" as publication channels. Engineers have edited proceedings too, but our colleagues are much more proficient in embedding proper metadata (and in maintaining long-term online storage!). And proceedings are published well in advance of the conference (which is something we humanists should really implement too) ... By revealing bibliographical data in Zotero, I hope that some day these items will be picked up by other services. (And Zotero items get very good pagerank in Google Search anyways ...).

Any gripes about Zotero?
- For some reason, I have to enter the publisher's name by hand!
- I cannot seem to solve the problem with the non-breaking space: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/24978/word-integration-bug-with-nonbreaking-space/
Two things feature prominently on my wishlist:
- It would be great to be able to include "cited references" within items. I have not found a way to do this. Mendeley seems slightly better in recognizing files on your harddrive that come without any metadata (it can OCR).
- Zotero is less involved in the world of #altmetrics . #Researchgate   and Mendeley are integrated with services like #Impactstory (by +Jason Priem et al)  and others. In principle, it's fine with me that Zotero is not a recommendation system and that it lacks the noise and emails that services like +Academia.edu  create. One can really use Zotero because of its advanced output facilities (and proper .csl files). Yet, secretly I hope that one day, either the #altmetrics masterminds or the people operating under #owot  ("one week one tool", a Digital Humanities initiative) can code something that opens up Zotero to #altmetrics . But the people over at the +Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media   of George Mason University  deserve some serious kudos for this strike of genius. Apparently, they are hanging by the thread of grants and #altac workers too, just like you and me! This turns Zotero even more into a tremendous achievement.

Any apps
There are many apps and scripts to interact with. There is a Zotero scanner (for Android), and apps for iOs too. You can read more about them here: http://www.zotero.org/support/mobile

Do you agree?
I am hardly a power user, there are many features that I haven't used yet. Did I miss something? What do you like about Zotero? Or do you recommend other systems?
