OLH will be publishing UZH Open Access Journal Le foucaldien Wednesday, 24 May 2017

The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) will be publishing the peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal Le foucaldien from Summer 2017. Following the success of the foucaultblog, which was founded by UZH researchers in 2013, Le foucaldien is now providing space for research papers on the philosopher Michel Foucault. The journal accepts contributions in German, English and French. There are no costs for either the reader or the authors. The funding for the publications is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation on the one hand, as well as by an international library consortium. Since 2017, the UZH has been supporting OLH as the first Swiss university (see blog release).

Neue Website zum Data-Pilotprojekt online: Monday, 15 May 2017

Wie soll mit der digitalen Datenflut in der Wissenschaft umgegangen werden? Wie können Bibliotheken zusammen mit IT Diensten die Forschenden in diesem Bereich unterstützen? An der Universität Zürich werden diese und andere Fragen derzeit in einem Data-Pilotprojekt in enger Zusammenarbeit von Zentralbibliothek, Hauptbibliothek und S3IT (Zentrale Informatik) behandelt.
Die neue Website informiert über die Projektziele, die involvierten Akteure und aktuelle Aktivitäten des Projekts. Auch wer Basisinformationen rund um das Thema Forschungsdaten sucht, wird auf der Website fündig: Von bestehenden Beratungsservices für Projektanträge über Informationen zur Datenmanagement-Planung bis hin zu Möglichkeiten für das Hosting von Daten bietet die Website weiterführende Ressourcen im lokalen, nationalen sowie internationalen Kontext.

Swiss National Science Foundation releases guidelines for data management plans Thursday, 11 May 2017

Researchers who are applying for Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) project funding will have to supply a data management plan (DMP) as of October 2017. The SNSF has just released the guidelines and regulations for DMPs.

DMPs will encourage good data management practices throughout the data lifecycle in order to better document, store and validate research findings. Moreover, the SNSF expects that data generated by funded projects will be publicly accessible in non-commercial, digital databases provided there are no legal, ethical, copyright or other issues.

National initiatives, like the swissuniversities-funded project Data Lifecycle Management (DLCM), are going to provide services and support for the creation of DMPs. The University of Zurich provides further information on research data with its recently launched website

"Die Inhalte des neu lancierten Electronic Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law werden mit Open Access einem breiten Kreis von Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern oder allgemein interessierten Personen zugänglich gemacht - rasch und in schönem Gewand. Der wissenschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Nutzen waren massgebend für die Wahl von Open Access."
