Jean Amaral replied to the topic FTC Charges Academic Journal Publisher OMICS Group Deceived Researchers in the forum LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable 2 hours, 30 minutes ago
Thanks for posting the article about the OMICS charges, Megan. Two questions come to mind for me that I’d love to hear SCRTers responses to:
Should we (on our individual campuses) alert chairs and faculty generally to OMICs, using the opportunity to provide resources and consulting services on predatory publishing for faculty?
If we know f…[Read more]

For those who may not be on CULIBS, I want to let you know that ACRL announced a new Policy Statement on Open Access to Scholarship by Academic Librarians:
Scholarship by academic librarians advances the fields of library and information science, influences practices of aligned professions, and informs effective advocacy. In support of broad and…
The Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) is hosting a twitter chat about attribution in open access publishing at 10AM tomorrow (details below). I participated in the most recent twitter chat on Creative Commons licensing, and it was incredibly useful.
I hope to see you in the twittersphere…[Read more]
Our Group will need a sub-committee to develop guidelines and design the merged blog. Right now, we are looking into merging the content on one blog site on the Commons that we can work on. A request was submitted to the Commons support folks for advice and help.
Beth raises an interesting point! There are many different uses of the term ‘open’ and even ‘open access’ at CUNY, and I do wonder how things are conflated.
What about a very broad title? I love how clear ‘Open Scholarship & OER’ is. However, since we’re expanding beyond the term open access now, I suspect we may want to expand beyond open…[Read more]
Open Cuny is the name of a GC Group on the Commons.
Open@CUNY is part of the name of the Group, Open Access Publishing Network @ CUNY (OaPN @ CUNY)
I am leaning toward “Open Scholarship & Teaching”.
Here is another variation: “Open Scholarship & OERs”
Open@CUNY seems a bit more nuanced to me and may preserve the objective of keeping it simple.

I lean towards Beth’s suggestion. I’m really not sure how many would associate Open CUNY with open admissions but better not to take a chance. Open@CUNY would be the same difference as well, right?
I like Open CUNY, too, because it is short and clean and leaves room for all “open” possibilities. However, I have concerns about calling this Open CUNY, given the embattled history of CUNY around open admissions. If the hash tag goes viral, finds its way onto a subway ad (we should be so lucky!), it might be evocative for some people is…[Read more]
Thank you for starting this thread! I think we can name it Open CUNY, if we have some conversations with our graduate student colleagues. I’d be happy to have this conversation, especially since I hope to use this as a hashtag for a campaign I’m developing with Central Communications.
Are there still plans to establish a working group to conceive…[Read more]
