Vías para el Acceso Abierto

    Existen dos vías para publicar en Acceso Abierto:
  • La vía dorada: publicación en revistas en Acceso Abierto.
      Tipología de las revistas en Acceso Abierto:
    • Gratuitas y libres: acceso libre y gratuito a los contenidos. Permiten la reutilización y redifusión de los contenidos. Los editores actúan como patrocinadores y suelen estar adscritos a sociedades científicas. A esta modalidad también se le denomina Vía Platino.
    • De pago por publicación (a cargo del autor): los autores pagan tasas para la publicación de sus originales. Consultar listado de revistas Predator.
    • Revista comercial (modelo híbrido): hay algunas publicaciones en las que coexisten artículos en abierto con artículos sujetos a suscripción. En ocasiones es el autor quien paga por publicar en estas revistas, dando lugar a lo que se denomina como double dipping, fenómeno consistente en la doble compensación económica que reciben los editores por los mismos contenidos (por parte del autor/investigador y por parte de los suscriptores).
      También existe la posibilidad de que la revista permita el acceso abierto después de un periodo de embargo.
  • La vía verde: publicación en repositorios.
      Tipología de repositorios:
    • Institucionales: el Repositorio Institucional de la Universidad Pontificia Comillas almacena, preserva, organiza y difunde en línea los resultados de la actividad académica e investigadora de la comunidad universitaria.
    • Temáticos: difunden la producción científica en áreas concretas de conocimiento.

Políticas editoriales de Acceso Abierto

El autor de una obra posee los derechos sobre la misma desde el momento de su creación; los derechos de contenido moral son irrenunciables. En cambio los de contenido económico -derechos de explotación- se pueden ceder a terceros. Por eso al enviar un artículo para publicar es muy importante conocer la política por la que se rige la editorial respecto al acceso abierto; aunque la mayoría de las revistas y editoriales permiten difundir sus trabajos en repositorios institucionales, es obligación del autor informarse de las mencionadas políticas.Conserva tus derechos de autor

    Para simplificar la tarea existen dos proyectos:
  • El proyecto Dulcinea cuyo objetivo es identificar y analizar las políticas editoriales de las revistas españolas
  • El proyecto SHERPA/RoMEO con similares objetivos y de ámbito internacional

Ciclo de los datos cientificos

 

OpenScience o Ciencia Abierta es un movimiento que pretende lograr que la investigación científica, los datos, el acceso y la difusión llegue a toda la sociedad. Este movimiento se basa en la colaboración y contribución, que se puede promover cuando los datos de investigación, notas de laboratorio y otros procesos de investigación son de acceso abierto, en unos términos que permitan la reutilización, redistribución y reproducción de la investigación.

 

 

Ciencia abierta: la investigación y los datos científicos accesibles y abiertos 

ciencia abierta

 

La Ciencia Abierta se basa en seis principios para abrir sus procesos y resultados de una investigación científica. Abrir la revisión por pares y los recursos educativos abiertos son otros dos aspectos importantes. “Conocimiento Abierto” se definide por: 

Metodologías Abiertas / Open Methodology ; Soft y Hard Libres (software y hardware); Datos Abiertos / Open Data (libres para reutilizar); Acceso Abierto / Open Access (libre y gratuito); Revisión por pares Abierto / Open Peer Review; Recursos Educativos Abiertos / Open Educational Resources (MOOCs, OERs o REAs). 

 

 

La elaboración de un Plan de Gestión de Datos  

Plan gestion datos

 

El Programa Marco de Investigación e Innovación de la Unión Europea Horizonte 2020 incluye un Piloto de Datos de Investigación en Acceso Abierto cuyo objetivo es garantizar el acceso y la reutilización de los datos generados en el ámbito de proyectos participantes.

El Programa Horizonte 2020 requiere que los proyectos que formen parte del Piloto de Datos de Investigación en Abierto entreguen un Plan de Gestión de Datos completo durante los 6 primeros meses del proyecto. Un Plan de Gestión de Datos es un documento que describe el tratamiento que van a recibir los datos de investigación recopilados o generados en el curso de un proyecto de investigación.

En este sentido, la Comisión Europea publicó una Comunicación en abril de 2016 en la que dictaba que el proyecto piloto de Horizonte 2020 dejará de ser piloto en 2017 y la norma será el acceso abierto a los datos de investigación por defecto para cualquier proyecto.

A nivel estatal, el Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) junto a seis universidades españolas han lanzado Maredata, una red temática nacional que almacena en abierto datos de investigación para su reutilización por otros sectores interesados en la información científica. (Más información).

 

 

La importancia de citar los Datos de Investigación 

citar datos de investigación

 

Ventajas de citar los datos de investigación:

  • Los conjuntos de datos también son resultados de investigación como artículos, monografías, etc.
  • Citar los datos de investigación facilita la identificación y el acceso a los datos y de esta forma su localización, validación y reutilización.
  • Permite conocer la autoría de sus creadores.
  • Facilita la métrica e impacto de los datos.
  • Favorece la transparencia en la investigación científica.

Según la declaración de Budapest "acceso abierto" [a la literatura científica revisada por pares], se refiere a la disponibilidad gratuita en la Internet pública, permitiendo a cualquier usuario leer, descargar, copiar, distribuir, imprimir, buscar o añadir un enlace al texto completo de esos artículos, rastrearlos para su indización, incorporarlos como datos en un software, o utilizarlos para cualquier otro propósito que sea legal, sin barreras financieras, legales o técnicas, aparte de las que son inseparables del acceso mismo a la Internet. La única limitación en cuanto a reproducción y distribución, y el único papel del copyright (los derechos patrimoniales) en este ámbito, debería ser la de dar a los autores el control sobre la integridad de sus trabajos y el derecho a ser adecuadamente reconocidos y citados.

Beneficios del Acceso Abierto

info oa 04Publicar en Acceso Abierto aumenta la visibilidad de la obra, del autor y de la propia Universidad.
Los protocolos internacionales para la descripción de contenidos y la interoperabilidad entre plataformas hacen que los contenidos en acceso abierto sean recolectados y recuperados más fácilmente por los buscadores en internet. Una mayor visibilidad se traduce en un mayor número de citas y mayor inmediatez de las mismas.
El acceso abierto también favorece la preservación en formato electrónico de las obras.

REGULATIONS FOR MAINTAINING THE BIBLIOGRAPHIC AND DOCUMENTARY PATRIMONY AND FOR ACQUIRING DOCUMENTS AT COMILLAS PONTIFICAL UNIVERSITY

As established in sections 1 and 4, 1 a) of the Regulations of the Library Service, this unit is responsible for the acquisition and care of all of the University's bibliographic and documentary collection, with the exception of documents belonging to the University's General Archive, regardless of their format, where they are stored, and which budget item they were charged to when acquired.

All of these bibliographic and documentary holdings comprise the bibliographic and documentary patrimony of Comillas Pontifical University and as inventory they must be included in the Library Service Catalog.

Taking the above into account, any type of monograph (book), periodical (journals and others), or any other type of document (videos, conference proceedings, etc.) that is obtained through acquisition, exchange or donation made by any section, department, institute, center or person pertaining to the University must be cataloged by the Library Service.

Bibliographic resources whose acquisition is funded by research projects with cost centers other than the Library's ones will also form part of the University's Library's collections and as such must be managed through the Acquisitions Unit of the Library Service and included in the Catalog. Restrictions on the use of these documents may be established up to the end of the research project or for other reasons, so long as they are justified.

Likewise, the Library Service must be informed of any documents generated within the University itself that might be of interest to the university community for teaching and research purposes so that they can be added to the Catalog, on condition that they do not contain confidential material.

Maintaining the bibliographic and documentary heritage

Any material that is capable of forming part of the University's bibliographic and documentary holdings must be included in the Library Service's catalog. If it is to be newly acquired, this will be arranged by the Acquisitions Unit of the Library Service. Bibliographic and documentary holdings that are not available for loan or consultation owing to their confidential nature or other factors determining their use must also be included for inventory purposes.

With regards to the Library Service, this must have a collections management policy in place that is focused on meeting the University's aims: To this end, the Director of the Library Service, advised by the Service Committee, will draw up an annual investment and acquisitions plan in accordance with the needs of the different faculties, schools, and institutes and in accordance with the budget projections. This plan will be presented to the Governing Board for approval.

  • Books

    The collection must, as a minimum, provide the basic bibliography for students and teaching staff and the necessary documentary holdings to cover research work. Any other document required for the purposes of managing or providing information for the centers will be acquired by the Library Service and listed in its Catalog.

    Faculties and Schools shall provide information to the Library Service on the recommended reading lists for each module with sufficient notice for them to be available during the academic year.

    The categories for the collections that must be considered in relation to the different types of user include:

    • Basic holdings for basic learning and training (manuals, basic bibliography, journals, general literature, etc.).
    • General and specialized reference and consultation materials (directories, encyclopedias, dictionaries, bibliographies, catalogs …).
    • Basic holdings for academic staff, specifically for teaching.
    • Research collections.
    • Collections supporting the management of the University.
    • Other holdings of interest for the University that add specific value to the collection.
  • Periodicals (journals)

    All periodical publications (journals) received at the University, either through purchase, exchange, or donation, must appear in the Library Service Catalog and must be available for consultation by the whole university community.

    All subscriptions will be taken out in the name of the institution. Personal subscriptions will not be accepted.

    Any subscription to a new title or cancellation of an existing subscription must be adequately justified by the center, department, or institute proposing it. Annual subscriptions will be renewed automatically, unless cancellation is expressly indicated.

    The following criteria for rationalization will be taken into account in the periodicals section.

    • Avoiding unnecessary duplication
    • Maintaining subscriptions for a minimum of five years
    • Availability of the titles in other nearby centers or in photo-documentation centers
    • Assessing general relevance, impact, use, and demand

Loose sections of journals will not be bought. Interlibrary loans will be used to obtain specific articles.

  • Donations

    The Library Service reserves the right to refuse to accept bibliographic material donated by institutions or individuals, taking into consideration the interest and usefulness of these holdings for the Library and its users. In order to decide on the interest of these holdings, relevant information will be requested about the works that are offered as a donation.

    The Library Service will decide on the location, use, and final fate of the donated material in accordance with the general policy for organizing holdings.

    Donations of bibliographic material will, in general, be accepted with no conditions of any type imposed by the person or institution making the donation, unless with the specific agreement of the parties.

Acquiring documents

All members of the university community may request the acquisition of documentary and bibliographical resources. Consequently, any user of the Library Service may suggest the purchase of bibliographic and documentary holdings. In the case of students, suggestions must be approved by a lecturer.

Final responsibility for selecting the collection lies with the director of the Library Service. The director of the Library Service may request guidance from other academic staff on the advisability of accepting particular requests in particular those who are members of the Library Service Committee.

  • Selection criteria

    The criteria that the Library Service will use to authorize acquisitions of bibliographic holdings are listed here for information purposes.

    1. Thematic content: A decision will be made about whether they are of essential, auxiliary, or of tangential importance to the University's study and research programs. A decision will also be made as to whether they form part of the programs' fundamental, specialized, or marginal areas.
    2. Quality: A decision will be made on whether the authors and works are of fundamental importance for a subject, whether they provide new theories, knowledge, or focuses, and whether they are general works, specialist works or works of dissemination.
    3. Predicted use: This will be evaluated as an important but non-exclusive criterion in the selection of a book. Consideration will be given to whether they are basic consultation works for the curricula as well as whether they are documents of general interest for consultation on subjects that are not specific to particular curricula and research programs. Likewise, consideration will be given to whether their consultation is transitory or lasting.
    4. Suitability for the collection: Consideration will be given to whether the work is appropriate for developing a balanced and consistent collection, taking into account whether it forms part of its core, whether it develops specific areas, or whether it fills existing gaps. Likewise, consideration will be given to the level of coverage of the subject (students, researchers …) as well as whether they belong to pre-existing priority collections.) an
    5. Bibliographic values: The quality and level of specialization of the publishing house, sponsoring body, and type of publication (reports, working papers, unpublished theses …) will be taken into account.
    6. Language of publication Consideration will be given to the language of publication in accordance with the extent of development of a specific subject in that language, as well as the knowledge and use of that language by the university community.
    7. Budgetary availability: Budgetary availability in the subject area to which the request relates will be considered in order to ensure a balance between the different areas.
  • Procedure for making acquisitions requests

    All requests for bibliographic material are to be made through the Acquisitions Unit of the Library Service. Direct purchases may not be made by any members of the university community, regardless of the budget item to which the acquisition is charged. The following procedure must be followed:

    1. To request the purchase of bibliographic and documentary sources, the appropriately completed standard form (see ANNEX I) must be sent to the Library Service.
    2. The following information must be provided on these forms that are available from the Library Service or through its website:
      • Details of the person suggesting the document
      • The following information about the material requested is required:
        • Author(s), in the case of monographs
        • Title of the monograph or the periodical (journals)
        • Publisher
        • Year
        • Edition
        • ISBN/ISSN
      • Number of copies wanted. If more than one, an explanation must be given.
      • Reasons for the request.
    3. Once the purchase request has been received, to avoid unnecessary duplications, and before processing the requests, checks will be made to ensure that the requested document is not already part of the Library Service's holdings.
    4. A single copy will be acquired in all cases except when the acquisition of more than one has been justified and approved.
    5. Once approval has been given by the director of the Library Service, the process of acquisition will begin.
    6. The Acquisitions Unit will inform the interested party of requests that are not approved by the director of the Library Service, explaining the reasons for this decision.
    7. The Acquisitions Unit will process the requests using the most appropriate supplier depending on the subject and type of materials selected.
    8. The Acquisitions Unit will inform the applicant of receipt of the document and any incident relating to the request for an acquisition.

If acquisition of the document is charged to any cost center other than the Library, the person in charge of said cost center must authorize the corresponding purchase request (see ANNEX I). In these cases, the procedure to follow is also the same as is mentioned above but authorization by the director of the Library Service will be virtually automatic as the need for the acquisition will normally be justified by the availability of the specific budget for it.

Only in certain extraordinary and justified cases will authorization be given for the interested party to purchase the bibliographic holding directly. To do so, and before making the acquisition, the person responsible for the purchase must contact the head of the Acquisitions Unit who will provide notification of the process that must be followed to make the purchase. The University will accept no retrospective responsibility for purchases made without following the established procedure. Such materials will be returned to the person who acquired it or to the supplier that sent it.

Standard form for requesting the purchase of bibliographical and documentary materials.

Antigua Biblioteca General (Comillas-Cantabria)
The old General Library (Comillas - Cantabria)

Comillas Pontifical University Library is a service that provides support for study, teaching, and research.

It is organized as a single university library with five service points: one located at the Cantoblanco campus, and four at the Alberto Aguilera campus in the city of Madrid.

The current library has a rich collection of antique books: 23 incunabula, 2,000 books from the 16th century, and some 20,000 volumes by scholastic authors from the 17th and 18th centuries. The unification and coordination of the aforementioned libraries has culminated in the creation of an outstanding bibliographic collection in theology, philosophy, and sciences of the spirit.

Cantoblanco Campus - Central Library

Sala Lectura CantoblancoThis campus began its existence with the foundation of the Society of Jesus' Pontifical Seminary and University in Comillas (Cantabria) in 1892. In 1967 the University moved to Madrid, and in 1972 it settled in the new Cantoblanco campus. Its own library holdings were enriched as a result of the move to Madrid, with contributions from the libraries of the following centers: Faculty of Theology of Oña (Burgos), Faculty of Philosophy of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), the Center for Humanistic Studies of Aranjuez (Madrid), the Center for Humanistic Studies of Salamanca, the Center of Oriental Studies of Madrid, and other private donation of great importance, primarily by Jesuits.

Alberto Aguilera/Quintana/Rey Francisco campus

Sala de lectura de la biblioteca de ICAI-ICADE

The Catholic Institute of Arts and Industry (ICAI) of Madrid started out as the School for Mechanics and Electricity, founded in 1908. In 1961 Catholic Institute of Business Administration and Management (ICADE) was founded with its own library. The two institutes merged in 1964. In 1980 the library of the Faculty of Canon Law was added and in 1985 the library of Professor Luis García de Valdeavellano was also added. Its collections have subsequently been enriched with the Beltrán de Heredia library (93-94 academic year) as well as private donations.

In October 1996 the Quintana library was established with holdings from the Cantoblanco and Alberto Aguilera campuses.

Since October 2006 there has been a Library Service point in the ICADE Business School located in Rey Francisco street.

Each location holds the bibliographic collections of the Faculties and Schools located on that campus.

Cantoblanco contains the main philosophy, theology, psychology, pedagogy, classical literature, and spirituality collections, as well as a sizable collection relating to other disciplines in the humanities such as literature and history. The Alberto Aguilera campus holds the main law, economics, and business studies collections, supporting the ICADE's courses and the courses at the ICADE Business School, as well as mechanical engineering, physics, information technology, and new technologies for ICAI programs. The Quintana service point holds the translation and interpreting collections.

Ciempozuelos campus

Sala de lectura de la biblioteca de CiempozuelosThis Library makes available to the university community the bibliographic collections for the Nursing and Physical Therapy programs that our University delivers at the San Juan de Dios Nursing and Physical Therapy School. These programs are widely recognized and benefit from a considerable degree of experience, having been delivered since 1957 and 1993 respectively.

The Library Service is an operational which acquires, organizes, processes, and cares for all of the University's bibliographic and documentary collection and makes it available to users, regardless of their format, where they are stored, and which budget item they were charged to when acquired, except for documents belonging to the University's General Archive.

The basic purpose of the University Library is to ensure that there is a broad bibliographic and documentary base to allow Comillas Pontifical University to fulfill its teaching, study, and research aims.

The roles of the University Library Service include:

  • Acquiring, organizing, preserving, and disseminating the bibliographic and documentary holdings of Comillas Pontifical University.
  • Guaranteeing awareness and use of its own holdings by the university community and making available the information held in other libraries and information centers in both Spain and the rest of the world, in particular university libraries.
  • Participating in programs and agreements in order to improve its own services.

WHAT IS PLAGIARISM?

It is the act of presenting someone else's ideas or work as your own.

When do we plagiarize?

  1. When we summarize an idea or a source using words that are suspiciously similar to those of the original work.
  2. When we copy directly from the original.
  3. When we appropriate someone else's work or ideas.
  4. When we use diagrams, images, tables, or graphs that we did not create.

And we do so without including a citation to identify the authors

Índices de citas

Los índices de citas recopilan información sobre las citas bibliográficas que se realizan en los artículos académicos. Ello hace posible saber las citas recibidas por un autor o por un trabajo concreto.

Una de las medidas de calidad que se tiene en cuenta para evaluar la actividad de los investigadores es la cantidad de citas que recibe un artículo o un trabajo.

Recommendations for author signatures on scientific publications 

Author Identifiers and Profiles

Author identifiers are meant to help with author name disambiguation. In order to measure your impact as an author, you want to be sure you get credit for all your research output. Publishing under variations of your name, having a common name, changing your name, changing institutions - all of these can lead to your work being incorrectly associated with another author, or you can end up with several author profiles.

ORCID: Open Research & Contributor ID

An international and interdisciplinary organization. This provides researchers with a register to obtain a unique and permanent identifier that distinguishes them from any others. It enables the attribution of academic works.

  • Bipublishers: Bibliometric Indicators for Publishers

    Prepared by EC3Metrics, this provides indicators for analyzing research in monographs and academic publishers included in the Book Citation Index. Study and analysis of citation patterns in books and book chapters from academic publishers. It provides indicators for publishers in 4 large fields and 38 disciplines. It provides the following bibliometric indicators:

    • Number of books published
    • Number of chapters published
    • Total number of citations
    • Normalized number of citations according to the “Crown Indicator”

Other factors

  • SCImago Journal & Country Rank (SJR)

    Developed by the SCImago group using data from Scopus. This includes a series of academic indicators for journals and countries.

    • SJR: the subject, quality, and reputation of the publication have a direct impact on the value of the citation
    • h-index
    • Quartile
  • Scopus Journal Analyzer: desde Scopus.

    It has two metrical indices: SJR and SNIP (Source-Normalized Impact per Paper): this measures the contextual impact of citations weighting them in accordance with the total number of citations in a given subject area. Useful for research areas with a lower probability of citations

  • Citations in Economics (CitEC)

    Analysis of citations of documents included in Repec. It includes a ranking with the IF of journals and working documents.

  • Google Scholar Metrics (GSM)

    This provides an impact index for academic journals, measured according on their h-index, making it possible to consult the hundred most cited journals in the world by language of publication. Spanish journals are ordered according to the h-index calculated between the years 2007-2011. The most cited articles from each particular journal can also be seen. Journals published in English allow consultations by areas and disciplines.

  • Journal Scholar Metrics: Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences

    Bibliometric tool that seeks to measure the performance of Art, Humanities, and Social Science journals by counting the number of bibliographic citations their articles have received according to Google Scholar.
    GSM mainly covers scientific journals (~95% of the sources). The rest of the sources are conference proceedings (mostly from Computer Science and Engineering), and collections in repositories (i.e. arXiv, SSRN). Only journals, conference proceedings, or repository collections which have published at least 100 papers in the last five complete years and received at least one citation are included in this product.
    There are two bibliometric indicators computed for every journal: the H5-index (h-index computed from the citations to documents published in the last five years) and the H5-median (median of the citation counts in the documents that contribute to the H5-index).

  • Índice H de las revistas científicas españolas según Google Scholar Metrics (2011-2015)

    A ranking carried out by the EC3 Group to overcome the limitations of GSM. It organizes the Spanish journals that appear in GSM by academic field and discipline and orders them by the h-index. Its aim is to test Google Scholar Metrics' breadth of coverage of Spanish academic journals.

A new metric based on Web 2.0 measuring the impact of an article using different indicators such as downloads, citations in Wikipedia, tweets, retweets, people saving the article in a citation manager.
Altmetrics. (2016, May 14). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 09:46, May 25, 2016, from https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Altmetrics&oldid=720266020

The terms "altmetrics" (alternative metrics) and "article level metrics" have been used to describe approaches to measure the impact of scholarship by using new social media tools such as bookmarks, links, blog postings, inclusion in citation management tools and tweets to gauge the importance of scholarly output.

Proponents of altmetrics believe that using altmetrics will help measure the impact of an article in a more comperhensive and objective way thaa was done perviously with journal metrics databases like Journal Citation Reports. However, there are limits to this approach and caution should be used to not rely on any one particular measure in evaluting the importance of scholarship.
