Information-theoretic Characterization of the Sub-regular Hierarchy

Research Life Cycle: Exploring Credibility of Metrics and Value in a New Era of eScholarship that Supports Grey Literature

Julia Gelfand & Anthony Lin
The fundamental components of the research process are defined by academic tradition, discipline and its participants. Traditional scholarship has now evolved into eScholarship with emerging technologies providing new methods of innovation and new ways of handling classical research processes. This revised research life cycle not only incorporates the established parts of the research chain, from discovery, gathering, and creating, but now has added phases of citing, sharing, preserving and archiving. There are quantifiable elements that...

Grey Literature: Taxonomies and Structures for Collection Development

Julia Gelfand
Libraries worldwide have not picked up the pace of addressing where Grey Literature fits in collection policies. This remains rather curious due to the skyrocketing prices of traditional books, journals, databases, and other information resources, and trends to serialize and promote access in perpetuity. Most collection development policies only address resources for which payment has been made, where formal acquisitions or licensing practices are observed. Due to more interest and a commitment to Open Access...

Crosslinguistic Word Orders Enable an Efficient Tradeoff of Memory and Surprisal

The Ubiquity of Grey Literature in a Connected Content Context

Julia Gelfand
Ubiquitous or pervasive computing has become a new paradigm in computer science and networking and seeks to embed computers into all functions of daily life, where the technology may be invisible. This "calm technology" allows for some powerful new products and ways of doing things. In the library, publishing, and information arenas this may mean potentially transforming the bibliographic organization and how scholars find and use information. The social and cultural enhancements ubiquitous computing offers...

Social Networking: Product or Process and What Shade of Grey?

Julia Gelfand & Anthony Lin
Social networking debuted in 1997 and is now an established and common method of communication and is increasingly related to and supportive of academic publishing, scholarship and generating new information. Some of the most mature and popular sites are Facebook, Bebo, Twitter, Linked-In and Plaxo plus many more specialized examples. As many professional societies and individuals choose to develop a presence on social networking sites (SNSs), the utility of them has become more valuable and...

Challenges for Collections in New Collaborative Teaching and Learning Environments: Does Grey Literature Fill a Void?

Julia Gelfand
Academic institutions around the globe are introducing and launching bold new teaching initiatives that utilize technologies in the classroom and for remote teaching. The emphasis on distance learning is but one example of this. However, the focus of this paper is to explore the collaborative nature of teaching, learning and studying where faculty and students have to be aware of access to information and the new course management and bibliographic software options to share information...

“Knock, Knock:” Are Institutional Repositories a Home for Grey Literature?

Julia Gelfand
Academic and special libraries are eagerly as well as reluctantly joining the bandwagon to participate in institutional repositories. The young and growing collection of the University of California Institutional Repository hosted by the California Digital Library (CDL) contains nearly 5300 documents (see http://repositories.cdlib.org/escholarship/). This paper will analyze the contents of that collection in terms of levels of greyness. Content comes from 9 different campuses composing the University of California’s Research Units, Centers, and Departments and...

Virtual Reality and Establishing a Presence in Second Life: New Forms of Grey Literature?

Kristine Ferry, Julia Gelfand, Dana Peterman & Holly Tomren
Co-authored together with J. Gelfand, D. Peterman, and H. Tomren: The virtual reality program Second Life poses new challenges to its more than 3 million users that include economic interactions, methods of communication, and documentation. This paper assesses the range of activities taking place in Second Life, proposes how Second Life may be viewed as a form of emergent grey literature, discusses the tools used to discover, document, and preserve it. Just five years ago,...

How Open Science Influences Next Developments in Grey Literature

Julia Gelfand & Anthony Lin
The practice of open science reinforces the intersections of open access, open data, open educational resources (textbooks), open methods, open standards, open transcription, open peer review, to promote how science is based on replication of experimental process and outcomes. Traditional publishing streams of books and journals capture just a fraction of the content now contextualized in open science. Our definition of open science blends the Foster Open Science Taxonomy with contextualizing science as Abraham Flexner...
