The post News and notes for math, July 2017 appeared first on University Libraries.

]]>**“New” open access journal: Algebraic Combinatorics** is expected soon growing out of Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics. [We do not currently subscribe to Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics although we do have access through 2016.] Timothy Gowers reports this story and comments on other aspects of math journal publishing in Another journal flips. Another post about this: Flipping subscription journals to OA: Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics.

I welcome your requests and suggestions for library acquisitions. You may email Ruth at rlewis@wustl.edu or use forms, Recommend a Purchase for the Library or Recommend a Journal Purchase or Cancellation. Please specify format when you have a preference; while there are good reasons to buy ink-on-paper book or ebooks when they are available on user-friendly platforms, I would prefer to avoid stretching our limited budget to buy BOTH formats of the same title.

**Springer ebooks:** Supplementary materials released with the print books (CD-ROMs, for example) are made available to the purchasers of the ebooks at http://extras.springer.com. Because I get these lists from compilations at Springer, there are always newer books available (which I will post next month). If you are looking for a book from Springer or a Springer-related publisher, it never hurts to search at http://link.springer.com/search?facet-content-type=”Book”.

I don’t understand the popularity of tools like Canary Haz, UnPayWall, and Open Access Button, not to mention Sci-Hub, but they do seem to be popular. Since I do most of my work on campus at a university with many subscription I find I usually have access to what I need. When I don’t, I find Interlibrary Loan simple and fast to use.

EDP Sciences open access journals have a Liberty APC model which “means that authors can choose from a number of options, the level of article processing charge (APC) they will pay to publish their article.” For 4*open*, $0 is an allowed fee in 2017. The proposed fee for the future is 1100 Euros.

]]>The post Thoughts about Sci-Hub and “easy” access appeared first on University Libraries.

]]>More interesting to me was this post on The Scholarly Kitchen, Failure to Deliver: Reaching Users in an Increasingly Mobile World. According to a couple of studies, a fairly high percentage of Sci-Hub downloads are articles where access was either already paid for by libraries or was open. It appears some people use Sci-Hub because it’s simple; you put in a DOI and get out a PDF. WU library databases and other systems are powerful but complex and, as the post suggests, this is an area where libraries need to improve. But you really don’t need to navigate them to get a known article. Here are a couple of suggestions that may be as easy as Sci-Hub and will legally deliver articles, even many Sci-Hub does NOT have.

- Use Citation Linker. The URL is long so bookmark it. You can put in a DOI (or PMID) and get out a PDF. If you are working off-campus, you may need to enter your WUSTL key and password when asked. [The bonus here is that if Citation Linker cannot locate access, you are offered a REQUEST THIS ITEM button which will create an Interlibrary Loan request for you.]
- Paste your DOI into Google Scholar; use this link so you have Get it!@WU entries which will lead to PDFs with a click or give you that same REQUEST THIS ITEM button. Also Google Scholar will usually give you
*some*articles which have cited the article you seek which might be helpful also.
