[Rdap] FW: IEEE DataPort

When I first looked at it I was reading conflicting info on whether it is open access or not.
The fact that they want to include all subject areas, but the datasets are behind a paywall is problematic.
Seems they are taking a lead from ICPSR where access is also by membership and it can cost to deposit data.

This is a problem:  “You must be an IEEE Dataport Subscriber to access these files.”
(source: https://ieee-dataport.org/documents/sar-ship-dataset-detection-discrimination-and-analysis)

More bad news imoho follows… (source: https://ieee-dataport.org/faq/how-do-i-become-ieee-dataport-beta-tester)
“All beta testers will receive a coupon code for FREE subscriber access to all IEEE DataPort Datasets (regular price: $40/month).
All beta testers will receive a coupon code for a FREE Open Access Dataset upload (regular price: $1,950/dataset).
All IEEE DataPort users may upload standard (non-Open Access) datasets for FREE.”

I’m sorry but I just see this as yet another was for them to up subscription charges to libraries and/or pass the buck to authors while getting priority access, if not ownership, of the data.
Not. Cool.

Not exactly the same, but Figshare has worked with a few societies to act as the repository for their data. I don’t know Figshare’s size limit but IEEE is listing 1TB.

Thanks for sharing Daureen!
This is a really interesting development; my experience has been that engineering disciplines by and large have been uninterested in data sharing. I don't think IEEE has a data sharing/data availability policy, but I imagine this could be a precursor to such a policy.

Also interesting to see a professional society to take it upon themselves to provide a research data repository solution. I wonder how many others might do the same...

[Publish Faster]

Tips to Speed Your Article Through Peer Review

Improve your article's chance of being published quickly by following these recommendations.

  *   Review your target publication's author instructions and scope to ensure that your article meets submission requirements
  *   Submit your article to only one publication at a time
  *   Avoid false or overblown claims
  *   Thoroughly address all reviewers' comments
  *   Include all relevant references

Four New IEEE Publications for 2018

IEEE is proud to launch four new publications in 2018: IEEE Solid-State Circuits Letters<http://www.mmsend10.com/link.cfm?r=vleGHLsdUvZpGgX__FhxIw~~&pe=Tv_gOklyP0xA_q72pUdN6cjGR7KYBWsidDXxUyFP480xbkGmhek9vxsub7LXz0n3rvgEo_HqssQr3ejp7-ktvg~~&t=qIpx8Zo9oaz9TslV_p9vAg~~>, IEEE Letters of the Computer Society<http://www.mmsend10.com/link.cfm?r=vleGHLsdUvZpGgX__FhxIw~~&pe=9fQSsAEm0Gznr6rbZxVczXmn0xSpmmEQ0UBZ5d6giKPY3ZlZYGjvuXev0KpaeIKLA8ZomQvtpnSRwa-vPfP-Yg~~&t=qIpx8Zo9oaz9TslV_p9vAg~~>, IEEE Internet of Things Magazine, and IEEE Transactions on Medical Robotics and Bionics.

Additionally, IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games has changed its title to IEEE Transactions on Games<http://www.mmsend10.com/link.cfm?r=vleGHLsdUvZpGgX__FhxIw~~&pe=xF0dnaRoaTlZXnkZvJgQ7Pn3evIlZnAKTNuNta0PFWSz4diUMrqhZc2JJkSqnL6XjU4kgN3MaWznRimZM0ZUfw~~&t=qIpx8Zo9oaz9TslV_p9vAg~~>. IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing<http://www.mmsend10.com/link.cfm?r=vleGHLsdUvZpGgX__FhxIw~~&pe=KH0aKAJ4xtSOI4ElG2fSPGPfFx0WeQDwDRBiJtS8WqVVIboSa4BITv24A1EHyaiHrgtnvW4q7HQWcmPEUur6Jg~~&t=qIpx8Zo9oaz9TslV_p9vAg~~> has updated its scope.

[Identifying Predatory Journals]

Identifying Predatory Journals

A predatory journal can be defined as one that takes advantage of the "author-pays" open access model by accepting publishing fees but offering much lower levels of service than those expected from legitimate journals in regards to peer review or production. When an author publishes in a predatory journal, the opportunity to improve the article through a high-quality peer review process may be compromised. It also means the article will not be easy to find since predatory journals are not available in databases such as Web of Science and there is no guarantee that your article will remain online and accessible in the future.

Possibly predatory journals or publishers can be identified in the following ways:

  *   Unprofessional website with spelling and grammatical errors
  *   Submission invitation emails with grammatical errors, overly flattering language, and an urgent request for a reply
  *   An "Impact Factor," but no listing in the Web of Science Journal Citation Report
  *   Prominent announcement that the publication is indexed in Google Scholar but not in high quality databases such as Web of Science or Scopus
  *   Journal title is very similar to a well-established journal
  *   Unusual journal scope that is either very broad or combines unrelated fields
  *   Promise of very fast publication
  *   Lower fees than other journals in the field
To avoid predatory journals, always start with a reputable publisher such as IEEE and read the journal information carefully before submitting.
