Posted On: Tuesday, May 3, 2022 - 09:25 by Sarah Cantrell
The Duke University Libraries will no longer support the Sciwheel citation management tool. Access will end on June 30, 2022.
If you are a Sciwheel user, you can choose to export your files easily from Sciwheel as a .RIS file into other citation management tools, such as Zotero and EndNote. Sciwheel has created easy step-by-step instructions on how to export your citations.
ZScaler and Use of Library Resources
Posted On: Tuesday, March 15, 2022 - 02:44 by Anu Moorthy
ZScaler, an Internet and Web gateway security tool, is being implemented across Duke Health. Users are reporting barriers to accessing Library resources when ZScaler is running on their Duke computers. For example, it may appear that Duke does not have access to a resource when we actually do.
DHTS has devised a strategy to allow access to Library resources while on campus. However, if you are having issues getting access, please submit a ticket with the subject “Zscaler” to DHTS at https://duke.service-now.com/sp.
Please continue to report access problems to us via mclibrary-collections@duke....MORE
Transformative Agreement with Cambridge University Press
Posted On: Friday, February 25, 2022 - 22:26 by Lesley Skalla
Authors who want to publish an article in an open access journal or publish in a standard subscription journal as an open access article, typically need to pay an "article processing charge" (APC) in order to cover the cost of publishing by the publisher. Duke University Libraries, including the Medical Center Library & Archives, now have a "Read and Publish" agreement, also known as a "transformative agreement," with Cambridge University Press(CUP) so Duke researchers can publish articles open access at no cost in specific journals covered by this agreement. In addition, users will have access to CUP's journal content. To find out what CUP journals fall under this agreement, use CUP’s...MORE

New NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy!
Posted On: Friday, February 25, 2022 - 16:38 by Lesley Skalla
In October of 2020, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy. Beginning in January 2023, this policy will require that all NIH researchers prospectively plan for how their scientific data and accompanying metadata will be preserved and shared by submitting a Data Management and Sharing Plan in their grant applications. This new plan goes into effect on January 25, 2023 replacing the current Data Management and Sharing Policy from 2003. The new policy continues NIH's commitment to making sure that the results and outputs of NIH funded...MORE
Journals for 2022: List of Cancellations & Additions
Posted On: Saturday, February 5, 2022 - 09:40 by Megan von Isenburg
There are several changes to Duke's journal subscriptions for 2022. Library staff across Duke have been working together to renegotiate large "Big Deal" packages with publishers Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley that were up for regular renewal, with an eye toward containing excessive annual increases for journal prices. When reviewing specific journal titles, we examined several variables, including usage data, journal price, article cost-per-use, journal Impact Factor, and the number of articles by Duke researchers in the journal.
While these cancellations will mean that the journals will no longer be available for immediate access at Duke, journal articles not available through university subscriptions can be requested through our ...MORE

Journal Changes for 2022
Posted On: Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 23:37 by Beverly Murphy
Several changes are coming to the to the journal collections at Duke.
Duke University libraries have been working together to renegotiate large "Big Deal" packages with Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley. Negotiations are still underway, but we expect that there will be journal cancellations and other changes starting in early 2022. These large "Big Deal" packages of journals function something like a cable or streaming package, where many titles are included for one annual sum and continued access is contingent on continued subscription. We are making changes to both packages and directly-subscribed titles based on data for journal usage, impact, and costs with goals to meet research needs, maximize budgets, and foster a sustainable scholarly...MORE

Changes to the E-Journals Page
Posted On: Saturday, December 11, 2021 - 16:02 by Beverly Murphy
Effective December 16, all links to E-journals will take you to a search for E-Journals on all subjects and disciplines and not just those for the Medical Center Library & Archives. This is similar to searching for e-journals in the library catalog which includes resources for all the libraries across Duke. During this transition, we welcome your feedback, comments and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Journal Impact Factor News
Posted On: Wednesday, November 10, 2021 - 10:32 by Margaret Graton
Did you notice a jump in the Journal Citations Report Impact Factor for one of your favorite journals this year? If so, good catch!
Journal Impact Factor calculations depend on the calendar year of publication. For journals that still publish in print, Clarivate traditionally used the print publication date to determine the year of publication. However, in the past 20 years, various models of online publication (early view, advance access, accepted articles) have been introduced. Typically, these online articles are citable with a stable DOI, weeks to months before they appear in a print issue, but have not been counted in the Journal Impact Factor until their print publication date.
For 2021, Clarivate has changed the game. ...MORE
