Selections from David A. Pendlebury's blog articles - 'Easing the Path to Access OA Content for Researchers – Part 1' and 'That was then but this is now… #OAWeek – Part 2'
David Pendlebury presents a look into the future of Open Access discovery, and how Clarivate Analytics is leading the way.
'This week marks the 10th anniversary of ‘International Open Access Week,’ and this year’s observance carries a thought-provoking theme: “Open in order to….” This is in itself an open-ended statement which urges us all to focus on what Open Access (OA) really enables, and how we can further enable OA.
Clarivate Analytics is not a publisher, but we are a valued and long-standing part of the scholarly ecosystem, partnering with scholars, and authors, with publishers, and editors and reviewers, so all the hats a researcher wears.
At a time when debate is raging in Europe about OA and the costs associated with access to scholarly research, we are proud to be easing the path to access OA content for researchers.'
'Clarivate Analytics, which now produces Garfield’s Web of Science, carries his legacy forward and continues to be aligned first and foremost with the interests of researchers.'
'Like Eugene Garfield, we value what scientists and scholars do and we honor their commitment and dedication to their institutions and their colleagues. A vital research activity that has been undervalued historically is peer review, a truly unselfish and “under-rewarded” service.
That is why, earlier this year, we acquired Publons, a pioneering enterprise that will document and provide data on the review activities of researchers. We also want to enable them to validate their contribution to the quality of published content through their reviewer activities.'
