Alle Harvard-artikler deles

Jeg styrede lige vandboardet forbi Social Science Statistics Blog igen i aftes. Det gør jeg jævnligt, men det er egentlig ærgerligt sjældent, at der er gode indlæg efterhånden. Men.

Denne gang var god. De kunne nemlig fortælle, at Harvard har sørget for, at deres ansatte ikke bliver nødt til at slette artikler fra deres blog/websites/whathaveyou, hvis den skal trykkes i et tidsskrift. Harvard har (som et af de første universiteter?) indset, at et tidsskrift ikke nødvendigvis er den bedste eller eneste måde i verden at få videnskabelige artikler distribueret på. Derfor ingen enerettigheder til tidsskrifterne.

In legal terms, the permission granted by each Faculty member is a nonexclusive, irrevocable, paid-up, worldwide license to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to each of his or her scholarly articles, in any medium, and to authorize others to do the same, provided that the articles are not sold for a profit.

Det er enormt gode nyheder og lægger endelig op til, at videndeling bliver taget alvorligt for videndelingens skyld – ikke kun for profit og uklædelig akademisk selvtilstrækkelighed. Tak, Harvard.

Nogen der ved, hvordan den slags bliver taklet på de danske universiteter?

I'm pretty much in love with a data. Or, the knowledge we can extract from it. Or, rather, the better decisions that can be made based on said knowledge.I hold a M.Sc in Sociology a MA in Historical Social Enquiry (Social History + Historical Sociology + Global Development), and work as Information Management Lead at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. I guess you can call me a Computational Sociologist of Global Development and Humanitarian Action. No less.That's pretty much it, really.

    Jae, lidt. DTU har siden 2005 haft “en politik for »arkivering og publicering af DTU-forfatteres værker«, der kræver, at der gives fri adgang til DTUs forskning.” (fra Dorch).
    I praksis går det selvfølgelig ikke helt så godt.

    Bertil Dorch (Det Kongelige Bibliotek, ph.d., http://openaccess.kb.dk/) skriver også:

    Policy for DTU’s archiving and publication of DTU researchers works: In the light of … DTU’s strategy plans and research policy, this policy must secure DTU the right to provide open access to DTU’s research results through electronic publication in ORBIT, including open access for DTU researchers that can use the published material for teaching and outreach. Only under certain special circumstances may DTU’s researchers hand exclusive rights to a publisher after approval by an institute manager. This policy secures one of DTU’s prime tasks: Dissemination of knowledge”
