Re: Two Inquiries to liblicense-l

I can answer the second! ALPSP and NISO have set up a working group
(chaired by Cliff Morgan of WIley, who is a member of NISO Standards
Development Committee) to address the issue of multiple variant versions
of journal articles. Our first task will be for a subgroup to flesh out
two 'use cases' - what happens in the absence of any agreed standards, and
what would happen if they were in place. Once that's agreed, the really
hard part starts - agreeing what versions actually need to be separately
identified (functional granularity, in DOI speak) and figuring out how to
do so, both for human consumption (e.g. version numbering convention) and
for machine use (metadata). Then we'll be able to draft NISO good
practice guidelines, and finally to consider whether a metadata standard
is needed

The group is already quite substantial, and includes representatives of
publishing, libraries, repositories and standards organisations. However, if you are desperate to join the work (or just to be kept in
touch with progress), do let me know.

Dear Readerrs:  At a meeting I attended a few days ago, two items went
by very quickly.  If anyone on the list knows about more them, could you
kindly respond with additional details?

1.  A recently released survey (survey results?) from SURF, JISC, and
CNI related to institutional repositories.  Interested in hearing about
scope, findings, URL.

2.  In a discussion about "tagging" articles to indicate publishers'
peer reviewed version and to distinguish from that article in pre-print
version, author's version, or some other variant, it was mentioned that
an ALPSP (?) group is looking into this possibility.  Would like to hear
a little more about this.  Sounds useful and important.

Thank you, Ann Okerson/Yale Library
