Paper Computers
Paper computing (see Kirschenbaum) and paper prototyping are relevant to present-day project design and development because they provide us with a sense of history while bypassing widespread tendencies to focus on whiz-bang technologies, which may demand significant resources that are not exactly accessible.Some ways to prototype historical texts: imitation (labour of the text), forgery (economy of the text), scenario (interaction through the text), story (performance of the text), counterfactual (norms of the text), model (logic of the text), glitch (negotiations with the text), and wish (ideology of the text). I’ll elaborate during seminar. They are conducive to various humanities methods (e.g., remediation and versioning), too, and they stress how people interact with materials. Speculative design (see Dunne and Raby and Lukens and DiSalvo) is useful since it puts design first, rather than treating it as the last step (“polishing” or “finishing”) of a project. It also privileges conjecture over proof while corresponding meaningfully with studies of speculative fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and futurisms, such as Afrofuturisms (see Nelson), Indigenous Futurisms (see Dillon), and near futures (see Bleecker et al.).

GitHub - ourresearch/future-oa: The jupyter notebook behind the paper "The Future of OA: A large-scale analysis projecting Open Access publication and readership" at https://doi.org/10.1101/795310
This is the jupyter notebook (manuscript.ipynb) behind the publication:

Piwowar, Priem, Orr (2019) The Future of OA: A large-scale analysis projecting Open Access publication and readership. bioRxiv: https://doi.org/10.1101/795310

The raw data needed to run the analysis is all available in Zenodo, here:

Piwowar, Priem, Orr (2019). Data From: The Future of OA: A large-scale analysis projecting Open Access publication and readership [Data set]. Zenodo. http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3474007

The notebook should run once you put those datasets in the a /data subdir and install all needed libraries.
Apologies for the slightly, um, messy code -- this is our first jupyter notebook and it evolved over time. We'll improve. In the mean time huge thanks to the Jupyter, Pandas, Matplotlib, etc teams for such a great toolset.

For others new to jupyter, and to help me remember: do this to export the notebook to html: jupyter nbconvert manuscript.ipynb --to html --TemplateExporter.exclude_input=True then push to github, then can be viewed at https://htmlpreview.github.io/?https://github.com/Impactstory/future-oa/blob/master/manuscript.html

The actual submitted version had a few final tweeks in Google Docs here and then were exported to the gdoc_git export directory, and finally saved as a pdf. Images are all in https://github.com/Impactstory/future-oa/tree/master/gdoc_export/images if you are looking for them (numbers not related to Figure numbers in text alas).

The Future of OA: A large-scale analysis projecting Open Access publication and readership - 795310.full.pdf
This study analyses the number of papers available as OA over time. The models includes bothOA embargo data and the relative growth rates of different OA types over time, based on theOA status of 70 million journal articles published between 1950 and 2019.The study also looks at article usage data, analyzing the proportion of views to OA articles vsviews to articles which are closed access. Signal processing techniques are used to model howthese viewership patterns change over time. Viewership data is based on 2.8 million uses of theUnpaywall browser extension in July 2019.We found that Green, Gold, and Hybrid papers receive more views than their Closed or Bronzecounterparts, particularly Green papers made available within a year of publication. We alsofound that the proportion of Green, Gold, and Hybrid articles is growing most quickly

cpikas/orcid: Scripts for using various APIs and services to retrieve ORCID ids
Scripts for using various APIs and services to retrieve ORCID ids

More on what I'm doing here: https://christinaslisrant.scientopia.org/2019/09/25/finding-orcids-not-as-easy-as-you-think/

The main point is that asking researchers for their ORCID is doesn't always get a great response even though we know they are required to have ids because their publishers require them. Searching ORCID by affiliation returns only a small proportion because the researchers often don't fill out their profiles or mark them for sharing.

Repurposing ProQuest Metadata for Batch Ingesting ETDs into an Institutional Repository

This article describes the workflow used by the University of Iowa Libraries to populate their institutional repository and their catalog with the data collected by ProQuest UMI Dissertation Publishing during the submission of students’ theses and dissertations. Re-purposing the metadata from ProQuest allowed the University of Iowa Libraries to streamline the process for ingesting theses and dissertations into their institutional repository The article includes a discussion of the benefits and limitations of the workflow described.
