The State of Open Data Report 2017
"Figshare's annual report, The State of Open Data 2017, looks at global attitudes towards open data. It includes survey results of 2,300 respondents and a collection of articles from industry experts, as well as a foreword from Jean-Claude Burgelman, Head of Unit Open Data Policies and Science Cloud at the European Commission. Its key finding is that open data has become more embedded in the research community - 82% of survey respondents are aware of open data sets and more researchers are curating their data for sharing."

[1609.00494] Publication bias and the canonization of false facts
"In the process of scientific inquiry, certain claims accumulate enough support to be established as facts. Unfortunately, not every claim accorded the status of fact turns out to be true. In this paper, we model the dynamic process by which claims are canonized as fact through repeated experimental confirmation. The community's confidence in a claim constitutes a Markov process: each successive published result shifts the degree of belief, until sufficient evidence accumulates to accept the claim as fact or to reject it as false. In our model, publication bias --- in which positive results are published preferentially over negative ones --- influences the distribution of published results. We find that when readers do not know the degree of publication bias and thus cannot condition on it, false claims often can be canonized as facts. Unless a sufficient fraction of negative results are published, the scientific process will do a poor job at discriminating false from true claims. This problem is exacerbated when scientists engage in p-hacking, data dredging, and other behaviors that increase the rate at which false positives are published. If negative results become easier to publish as a claim approaches acceptance as a fact, however, true and false claims can be more readily distinguished. To the degree that the model accurately represents current scholarly practice, there will be serious concern about the validity of purported facts in some areas of scientific research. "

Research Information Management: Defining RIM and the Library's Role
"Research information management (RIM) is the aggregation, curation, and utilization of information about research and is emerging as an area of increasing interest and relevance in many university libraries. RIM intersects with many aspects of traditional library services in discovery, acquisition, dissemination, and analysis of scholarly activities, and does so through the nexus with institutional data systems, faculty workflows, and institutional partners. RIM adoption offers libraries new opportunities to support institutional and researcher goals. In this paper prepared by Rebecca Bryant, OCLC Research Senior Program Officer, and a working group of librarians representing OCLC Research Library Partnership institutions, learn more about what RIM is, what is driving RIM adoption, and the library’s role in RIM."

Data, a first-class research output
" The Make Data Count (MDC) project is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to develop and deploy the social and technical infrastructure necessary to elevate data to a first-class research output alongside more traditional products, such as publications. It will run between May 2017 and April 2019. The project will address the significant social as well as technical barriers to widespread incorporation of data-level metrics in the research data management ecosystem through consultation, recommendation, new technical capability, and community outreach. Project work will build upon long-standing partner initiatives supporting research data management and DLM, leverage prior Sloan investments in key technologies such as Lagotto, and enlist the cooperation of the research, library, funder, and publishing stakeholder communities."

Project MUSE - Cornell University Press Books Available Open Access on MUSE
"Project MUSE, in collaboration with Cornell University Press, is pleased to announce the digital, fully-open-access availability of seven classic titles from the Press’ distinguished catalog, on the Project MUSE platform. Funded via a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ (NEH) Humanities Open Book Program, the seven out-of-print titles – none previously available electronically – were carefully selected with input from subject specialists at the Cornell University Library for their enduring scholarly impact.  “We are thrilled to make these seven classic titles openly accessible for the first time to the global scholarly community on Project MUSE,” said Dean Smith, Director of Cornell University Press. “MUSE will enable us to maximize discovery and dissemination on an established platform that is embracing new models for hosting open access scholarship.” “These first open books from Cornell University Press reflect a long-standing legacy of publishing classic scholarship in German Studies and Slavic Studies,” said Brett Bobley, Director of the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities. “We are pleased that the titles are accessible and open for the next generation of scholars.”"
