Toward an Open Science Enterprise
"Openness and sharing of information are fundamental to the progress of science and to the effective functioning of the research enterprise. The advent of scientific journals in the 17th century helped power the Scientific Revolution by allowing researchers to communicate across time and space, using the technologies of that era to generate reliable knowledge more quickly and efficiently. Harnessing today’s stunning, ongoing advances in information technologies, the global research enterprise and its stakeholders are moving toward a new open science ecosystem. Open science aims to ensure the free availability and usability of scholarly publications, the data that result from scholarly research, and the methodologies, including code or algorithms, that were used to generate those data. Open Science by Design is aimed at overcoming barriers and moving toward open science as the default approach across the research enterprise. This report explores specific examples of open science and discusses a range of challenges, focusing on stakeholder perspectives. It is meant to provide guidance to the research enterprise and its stakeholders as they build strategies for achieving open science and take the next steps."

The State of Open Data Report 2017
"Figshare's annual report, The State of Open Data 2017, looks at global attitudes towards open data. It includes survey results of 2,300 respondents and a collection of articles from industry experts, as well as a foreword from Jean-Claude Burgelman, Head of Unit Open Data Policies and Science Cloud at the European Commission. Its key finding is that open data has become more embedded in the research community - 82% of survey respondents are aware of open data sets and more researchers are curating their data for sharing."

"Funded by the National Science Foundation, this workshop series will generate discipline-specific responses from the Mathematical and Physical Sciences research communities to the federal policy requiring open data and the recently-released NSF policy statement on open data. In order to decide how and what to preserve for public consumption, and in what manner the data will be stored and accessed, a series of dialogues is required. Discussions within individual disciplines must reach a consensus on data preservation procedures and data access guidelines consistent with discipline-specific expectations for data re-use, access policies, and the level of burden implied by conservation that is placed on the individual investigator."

The Realities of Research Data Management
"The Realities of Research Data Management is a four-part series that explores how research universities are addressing the challenge of managing research data throughout the research lifecycle. Research data management (RDM) has emerged as an area of keen interest in higher education, leading to considerable investment in services, resources and infrastructure to support researchers' data management needs. In this series, we examine the context, influences and choices higher education institutions face in building or acquiring RDM capacity—in other words, the infrastructure, services and other resources needed to support emerging data management practices. Our findings are based on case studies of four institutions: University of Edinburgh (UK), the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (US), Monash University (Australia) and Wageningen University & Research (the Netherlands), in four very different national contexts.

Public Research Universities Recommitting to Lincoln’s Vision: An Educational Compact for the 21st Century - American Academy of Arts & Sciences
"Public higher education is key to U.S. educational infrastructure and the foundation of competiveness. As centers of learning, culture, research, and entrepreneurship, these institutions drive social mobility and economic growth. Yet over the past decade, state funding to these universities has declined precipitously, forcing campuses across the country to make difficult choices about institutional spending and resource allocation."

VOX – Pol | Check the Web: Assessing the Ethics and Politics of Policing the Internet for Extremist Material
"This report draws on insights from representatives of civil society, law enforcement and industry groups to offer fresh perspectives on the policing of extremist material online. Evidently, the Internet now serves not only as a breeding ground for extremism, but also offers myriad data streams which potentially hold great value to law enforcement. Using an international legal framework as a starting point, the report explores the technical, political and ethical complexities of policing the web for extremist material, and its implications for security, privacy and human rights."

Council of Canadian Academies | CCA | Leading in the Digital World: Opportunities for Canada’s Memory Institutions
"Memory institutions (libraries, archives, museums and galleries) are confronted with many challenges, from technological change, resource challenges, and shifting public expectations. Cultural documents are frequently “born digital”, while older materials need to be digitized for better public access. Furthermore, memory institutions of all types face the difficult task of preserving digital files in formats that will remain accessible over the long- term. As one of the most wired populations in the world, Canadians expect their heritage to be accessible and discoverable online. Today, past content and digital information is not always accessible. New ways of acquiring, preserving, and accessing materials are straining the resources of memory institutions but they are also creating new opportunities to present holdings, collaborate amongst one another, and engage the public."

Sustainability Implementation Toolkit | Ithaka S+R
"What do the digital humanities look like on your campus? What types of projects are your faculty undertaking? Which will require longer-term support, and where will that support come from? What roles do your service units, centers, and digital labs play in the various life-cycle stages, and is this clear to faculty? This toolkit will help administrators create a coherent institutional strategy for supporting digital humanities activities and the valuable outputs that they generate."

Digital Scholarship Centers
"The purpose of this workshop was to explore the varying models of supporting digital scholarship in higher education, focusing on those that involve partnerships with, or a strong role for, libraries and information technology units. Participants were selected to represent a range of scholarship center models, different types of higher education institutions, and a variety of roles, including senior leadership, heads of centers, faculty closely affiliated with centers, and graduate students with close ties to centers."

The Rise of Fractional Scholarship
"Underemployed post-graduate researchers represent a vast, untapped resource that could be harnessed to address America's thorniest scientific challenges, according to a report issued by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The paper suggests that "fractional scholarship" could employ surplus scholarly expertise to advance scientific research, much as distributed computing projects - which recognize that most computers are largely idle during their lifetimes - utilize spare computational cycles to seek answers to complicated problems."

Future Science Opportunities in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean
Future Science Opportunities in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean suggests actions for the United States to achieve success for the next generation of Antarctic and Southern Ocean science. The report highlights important areas of research by encapsulating each into a single, overarching question. The questions fall into two broad themes: (1) those related to global change, and (2) those related to fundamental discoveries. In addition, the report identified key science questions that will drive research in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean in coming decades, and highlighted opportunities to be leveraged to sustain and improve the U.S. research efforts in the region.

The Truant Muse • I know you don't want to hear this.
But - here’s what drives me crazy as a reporter - did you say anything about it before? It doesn’t seem a coincidence that voter apathy, financial illiteracy, and government spending have all risen in tandem. As reporters, we’re trying to inform you so that you can be a fully functioning citizen. We tell you: here’s the debate. Here’s what people are saying on both sides. And too often, the response we get back is, “how DARE you tell me what those people think? La la la la, I can’t hear you!”
