Improving guidelines for video abstracts: An analysis of the most popular videos abstracts in the TIB AV Portal

Margret Plank & Jens Kösters
Today, more and more scientific videos are published online. One visual format that seems particularly suitable for communicating scientific content is the video abstract. This is the 3-5 minutes long moving image equivalent of a written abstract. With this format, scientists have the opportunity to explain the results and background of their concrete research work as well as the methods used, the study results, and possible implications to a potentially larger audience. Recently, some studies...

Linguistically, a portmanteau combines deep learning aspects of AI with the doctored or falsified enhancements that deem the content fake and now deepfake or misinformation results. A variety of sophisticated software programs’ exacting algorithms create high-quality videos and manipulated audio of people who may not exist, twisting others who do exist, creating the potential for leading to...

These laboratories are affiliated to ten large French research universities and cover the whole range of scientific domains. We assessed the...

Grey Literature and Persistent Identifiers: GreyNet’s Use Case

Dominic Farace, stefania biagioni, Carlo Carlesi & Chris Baars
The PID (Persistent Identifier) Project is a follow-up to the AccessGrey Project carried out in 2019 in which an online survey was held among stakeholders in GreyNet’s community of practice.

Zines as Nonbinary Objects and Questions of Privilege

Andrea Marshall
Zines exist within the hybrid recesses of cultural consciousness. They are subcultural relics of the eras prior to the internet and they are knowledge infrastructures that overtly disrupt mainstream cultural perspectives. They also function as boundary artifacts that bridge gaps between analog print protocols and digital manifestations of data such as PDFs and hyperlinks. Nicolini et al. (2012) observe that “we look at objects as boundary devices but also as epistemic things, objects of activities,...
