Referencing published articles

Every article published in Advances in Combinatorics is assigned a unique number within the publication year, which is displayed at the top of the first page of the pdf file available on arXiv. The article can be referenced using the publication year and this number. Each article is also assigned a unique and persistent digital object identifier (DOI). While the exact formatting of the reference may differ depending on the journal style, the first five articles that we have published can be referenced, for example, as follows.

Migration Guide: Digital Commons · MarcusBarnes/mik Wiki · GitHub
The Digital Commons migration performed for KORA ( involved a combination of MIK toolchains:

OAI-PMH toolchain to download files
CSV Single File toolchain to create MODS XML

The combination approach is favoured because:

Difficulty of batch exporting object files from a vendor-controlled system
Digital Commons's OAI-PMH feed provides a direct link to the file in the second <dc:identifier> element, making it easy to download files this way (this is the reason for the OAI toolchain's development)
Metadata provided by OAI-PMH is incomplete and difficult to transform accurately to MODS
Digital Commons provides its most complete metadata via Excel spreadsheet export, which can be readily converted to CSV

CNI Fall 2019 Membership Meeting: 5.6.1 Collaborative Empowerment, Empower...
This session describes a pilot project that seeks to facilitate inclusive and equitable opportunities to learn core computational literacy and data science skills at the University of Toronto. The project team's approach to promoting such skill development actively reaches a diverse range of students, faculty, and staff in the university community regardless of the field of study or work. The heart of this pilot is driven by becoming a member organization of The Carpentries, a global community whose mission is to teach foundational computational and data science skills to researchers in academia, industry, and government through a transformative pedagogy and cooperatively developed curriculum. The session outlines how the project team has capitalized on membership benefits to cultivate a learning culture that relies on cross-functional collaboration at a large research university. Such collaboration empowers novice learners to acquire computational and data science skills in a mindfully scaffolded way, continue in self-directed learning, and give confidence to other novice learners in their networks. This presentation will be relevant to those interested in innovations in teaching and learning and infrastructure to support research.

Proposed Talks
The University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) approached the Texas Digital Library (TDL) in 2018 about migrating their scholarly repository from Bepress to a new DSpace 6.x instance at TDL. During this project, TDL developed a workflow for the repository migration that included: using AWS for data storage; developing code for pre-processing, metadata mapping, and generating DSpace item packages; and incorporating existing DSpace import tooling for repository data.

In collaboration with UNTHSC, TDL staff created a process for importing a community/collection hierarchy spreadsheet into DSpace. Additionally, TDL developed code to create Simple Archive Format packages for digital objects in the repository that incorporated 1) a metadata crosswalk (also built in collaboration with UNTHSC staff), 2) data about the repository harvested from its OAI-PMH feed, and 3) the metadata and digital objects themselves located in S3. Finally, TDL worked with UNTHSC staff to customize the configuration and look-and-feel of the new DSpace instance to meet their needs.

This presentation will discuss our Bepress to DSpace migration from initial design, to the project execution, to the conclusion and assessment of the project deliverables. I will lay out what we learned and offer suggestions for others considering similar migration projects.

The Code4Lib Journal – Using OAI-ORE to Transform Digital Repositories into Interoperable Storage and Services Applications
In the digital age libraries are required to manage large numbers of diverse objects. One advantage of digital objects over fixed physical objects is the flexibility of ‘binding’ them into publications or other useful aggregated intellectual entities while retaining the ability to reuse them independently in other contexts. An emerging framework for managing flexible aggregations of digital objects is provided by the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) with its work on Object Reuse and Exchange (ORE). This paper will show how OAI-ORE is being used to manage content in digital repositories, in particular institutional repositories, and has the potential ultimately to transform the conception of digital repositories.

Invest in Open Infrastructure: An Interview with Dan Whaley - The Scholarly Kitchen
When David Lewis presented on the 2.5% Commitment at last year’s JROST meeting, I think it opened our eyes that voices within institutions were seeing the same thing, and that there might be a solution waiting to be pursued.

As Cameron Neylon wrote in his provocatively titled “Against the 2.5% commitment”: “Any proposal that starts ‘we’ll just get all the universities to do X’ is basically doomed to failure from the start. Unless coordination mechanisms are built into the proposal. “ (his emphasis). IOI is the mechanism we propose (and I’m grateful that both Cameron and David have joined the effort to architect this). Fundamentally what we envision is a way to bring together producers and beneficiaries of open infrastructure.

Promoting content discovery of open repositories : reviewing the impact of optimization techniques (2016-2019) - Strathprints
Analysis of this unique dataset provides persuasive evidence that specfic enhancements to the technical configuration of a repository can generate substantial improvements in its content discovery potential and ergo its content usage, especially over several years. COUNTER usage grew by 62%. Increases in Google 'impressions' (266%) and 'clicks' (104%) were a notable finding, with high levels of statistical significance found in the correlation between clicks and usage (t = 14.30; df = 11; p < 0.0005). Web traffic to Strathprints from Google and Google Scholar was found to increase significantly with growth on some metrics exceeding 1300%. Although some of these results deserve additional scrutiny, the paper nevertheless demonstrates the link between repository optimization and the need for open repositories to assume a proactive development path, especially one that prioritises web impact and discovery.

Decolonizing Attribution | Journal of Radical Librarianship
In this article we provide a structural critique of attribution as it is figured in colonial practices and ongoing settler-colonial logics that form the basis for creating, circulating, and sharing knowledge through research practices, methods, and platforms. Settler colonialism is a tradition, and as such, it has habits. One of these habits is to hide specific tactics and practices in operationalizing dispossession. Attribution is one of these tactics. Attribution functions as a key mechanism within a copyright/author/archive matrix which maintains hierarchies of knowledge production by reducing Indigenous and non-European subjectivity and legitimating the ongoing appropriation of Indigenous cultural material by non-Indigenous authors. The colonial force of attribution and its practices of exclusion are hidden in the stacks and how they are populated; in the rights fields of databases and how they are cited; in archival processes of selection, appraisal, and accessioning; and through efforts to digitize content and collections in order to make them open without acknowledgment and ongoing relationships. We argue that one mode of decolonizing practices for libraries and archives is through remaking, reframing, and refiguring attribution through ongoing Indigenous connections to land and knowledge.

Implementing a policy - Harvard Open Access Project
Dark deposits

Faculty should always deposit suitable versions of new scholarly articles in the institutional repository. If they obtain a waiver for a given article, then the deposit will at least initially be "dark" (or non-OA). But the author should still deposit the manuscript.
One reason for repositories to allow dark deposits is to support the message that faculty should always deposit their new work.

If a deposit is dark, at least the metadata should be OA.
Another reason to allow dark deposits is to facilitate search indexing and discovery for work which, for one reason or another, cannot yet be made OA.

If a deposit is only intended to be dark temporarily, for a known embargo period, then dark deposits should be set to open up automatically at the future date determined by the author decision or embargo period. Most repository software today supports this option.

If an author deposited a manuscript and obtained a waiver, then the institution does not have permission under the policy to make that manuscript OA. At least initially, that deposit must be dark. However, the repository may switch the manuscript to OA if it can obtain permission from another source, such as a standing policy of the publisher's to allow OA after a certain embargo period. See the entry on waiver options. Repositories should make dark deposits OA whenever they are legally allowed to do so.

For seven reasons why repositories should allow dark deposits, see Stuart Shieber, The importance of dark deposit, The Occasional Pamphlet, March 12, 2011.

Attribute: Type of Article - JATS
Best Practice: When possible, articles should be assigned types, that is, this attribute should used on the <article> element to provide typing information for retrieval or record keeping. Many publishers indicate the type of article, either in an attribute like this one, or with unique element declarations (such as “<review>” or “<calendar>”), and this attribute has been designed to preserve that information. If the article is not one of the listed types or the type of article cannot be determined, the “other” attribute value may be used, or the attribute may be omitted.

Recent hacking to our OJS 2.4.8 - PKP Community Forum
they registered as an author and uploaded “hacked by” images to the “Comments to the Author” section in the submission page. Then they took the link (…public/site/images/username/xxx.jpg) and spread as it is hacked.

This is not a hack, but instead misuse of an intentional feature to cause confusion. The system is not at risk, nor has it been hacked by this means.
