Open Access transformation of journals of the Geoscientific academic societies

Online event

Open Access transformation of journals of the Geoscientific academic societies
16 March 2021, 13:00-14:30

Participation: Free of charge and without registration via the following link: Online Conference Room (BigBlueButton).

– Please note that the event will be held in German –

Programme see below.

At this event, the German Mineralogical Society (DMG) and the German Quaternary Association (DEUQUA) will share their experiences with flipping their journals to Open Access. In addition, other Open Access (business) models beyond the “article-processing-charge” model often used in the natural sciences will be presented and discussed. Also, the DFG and the FID GEO will present their options for supporting scientific societies in the Open Access transformation of their journals.

This event is aimed in particular at the members and the leadership of geoscientific societies who would like to inform themselves about the possibilities for the Open Access transformation of journals and exchange ideas. All other interested parties are welcome to attend as well.

Academic society Open-Access-activities beyond journal transformation

Online event

Promoting Open Access: Academic society activities beyond journal transformation
22 Feb. 2021, 3-4 pm

Participation: Free of charge and without registration via the following link: Online Conference Room (BigBlueButton).
Programme see below.

– Please note that the event will be held in German –

Scientific publishing is increasingly changing to free access and free re-use, i.e. to “Open Access”: funders, publishers as well as scientific institutions support this change through a variety of activities and incentives. Academic societies play an important role in this transformation because they help shape publication standards for their respective professional communities and also often publish scientific journals themselves.

Regardless of whether a professional society already publishes journals in Open Access or is not yet even considering an OA conversion of its journal, there are many activities that professional societies can develop to support Open Access. Three academic societies will present examples of their work in support of Open Access.

This event is particularly aimed at geoscientific societies, but also other professional societies, who would like to learn more about ways to support Open Access.

The event will NOT be about the Open Access conversion of journals, for this the FID GEO is organising a separate event on 16/03/2021.

Save the date: How academic societies (can) promote Open Access

The Specialised Information Service Geosciences (FID GEO) is organising two online events, especially for geoscientific academic societies, to explore the possibilities for promoting Open Access publishing. The dates are: 22 February 2021, 15:00-16:00 and 16 March 2021, 13:00-14:30.

Regardless of whether a professional society already publishes journals in Open Access or is not yet even considering an Open Access transformation of its journal, there are many activities that professional societies can develop to support Open Access. The German Geophysical Society (DGG), the German Society for Moor and Peat Science (DGMT) and the Society for Media Science (GfM) will present examples of their work to support Open Access.

The Author Identifier ORCID now available in GEO-LEOe-docs

To connect unequivocally scientists with their research, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) has been established for some time.  Despite that the current repository software DSpace of the GEO-LEOe-docs repository does not yet fully support the use of the ORCID, a way of integration was found. The service of displaying the ORCID with the author’s name is now available for all at the GEO-LEOe-docs repository. If you want to supplement your ORCID, please email us. During the insertion of new entries to the repository, the ORCID can now be added in the input mask.

Contributions to the 5th International Colloquium on Historical Earthquakes published on GEO-LEOe-docs

A new anthology is available in the repository of the FID GEO from the German Society for Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics (DGEB). The electronic primary publication by the editor Dr. Diethelm Kaiser is published as volume 18 of the DGEB publications and results from contributions of the 5th International Colloquium “Historical Earthquakes, Paleoseismology, Neotectonics, and Seismic Hazard” (2017) in Hannover.  Like all contributions on GEO-LEOe-docs, the PDF can be accessed directly via the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) link.

Automated data import from the repository (https://e-docs.geo-leo.de) into the K10plus- Catalogue

Since the implementation of the Common Union Catalogue K10plus in March 2019, an import routine for metadata from the repository into the Union Catalogue has been developed. In cooperation with the Head Office of the library cooperation ‘Gemeinsamer Bibliotheksverbund’ (VZG), the implementations were realized, using the example of the Geological Maps 1:25,000

After extensive programming and substantial tests to generate a catalog syntax that complies with the rules, the content of GEO-LEOe-docs is now visible in the production system K10plus and subsequent reference systems. An automated import routine for new publications in the repository was successfully implemented and since the beginning of November, the metadata of all 458 digitized map sheets in the repository are now included in the catalog.
