UC Publication Management System = OA upload-a-thons

Drop-in for assistance with the new publication management system & easy deposit of your articles into eScholarship.
This “harvesting” system is currently being implemented across the UC campuses in response to the Academic Senate’s call for an efficient mechanism for facilitating faculty participation in the UC Open Access policy. The initial focus is on supporting the Open Access Policy, the system has the ability to connect campus systems like faculty profile pages, offering the potential for streamlining additional publication reporting and management processes in the future.

Visit one of the Upload-a-thons for assistance with this new system.

NEW! Bioscience & Natural Resources Library website

Please visit our NEW website! It is one of many library homepages included in the UC Berkeley Library’s move to update and improve our information pages.  As we migrated the content of the “classic” Bioscience & Natural Resources Library website to the new format, we were careful to make sure that all of the special resources on the ‘classic’ website were included.

New website: Bioscience & Natural Resources Library.
If you don’t see links on the first page check the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library Subject Guides list, or contact us.

The Bioscience eJournal list has a new look but the same content.  Bioscience e-Journals List

Thank you!

SCOAP3 edges closer to goal….

Moving toward its goal, SCOAP3, the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics, announced article processing charges for twelve journals. CERN and the publishers also announced that all articles in high-energy physics would be open access from 2014, in return for a yearly fee paid by the publishers & library partners.
