In January 2012, the Library’s Center for Digital Scholarship and Services (CDSS) began monitoring the Web of Science database for citations with authors affiliated with Oregon State University. The Web of Science indexes a large number of the peer reviewed journals in both the social sciences and sciences. CDSS anticipates this monitoring will locate ~1600 articles from OSU authors in 2012. For each article, CDSS staff check to see which (if any) version can be deposited in ScholarsArchive@OSU. The data from the first four months of this weekly monitoring and follow-up, shows that:
Through the systematic monitoring of OSU author publications in the Web of Science and with the help of authors in providing accepted manuscripts when needed, CDSS hopes to deposit a broad range of OSU’s current scholarship in the ScholarsArchive@OSU (OSU’s open access repository). Doing so makes the publications freely available online and increases the visibility of the research conducted by OSU faculty. Questions about this service or the ScholarsArchive@OSU can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
