Scholarly Communications Update: ResearchGate and the Revenge of the Paywall
ResearchGate has become a very popular tool for researchers to interact with their peers, share their work, and access a feed of articles relevant to their scholarship.
Recently, a group of large publishers formed the Coalition for Responsible Sharing and have begun a legal and publicity campaign to put pressure on ResearchGate to remove access to millions of articles from its platform.
Publishers allege that as many as 7 million articles (or 40% of all content) on ResearchGate infringe copyright. In response, ResearchGate has begun to remove articles.
ResearchGate has 13 million users, and it is very likely that the faculty and researchers you liaise with will be impacted by these events.
This session will provide Library staff with an overview of these recent developments and also equip them with resources necessary to engage in discussions about:
- Understanding and complying with publisher copyright policies
- Ways to advocate for the sharing of scholarly output on the researcher’s terms
- Alternatives or complements to ResearchGate (TSpace!)
- How the Library can help
When & Where: Monday, December 11th, 2017 , 1:00-2:00PM | Alice Moulton Room, Gerstein
Who: Stephanie Orfano, Mariya Maistrovskaya, Graeme Slaght
The event is brought to you by the Tri-Campus Scholarly Communications Committee. If you have suggestion for a topic you want to hear about, let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
