Abstract

This proceedings e-book contains papers presented at the national Symposium on “Electronic Books and the practices of scholarly research”, held in Naples, Italy, on 20 June 2003. The advent of new technologies, tools, and digital resources is changing how scholars conduct their work, keep updated in their field or fields of study, and think about research. Moving from the reconstruction of the market of scientific communication, copyright policies, and management of long-term conservation strategies, the published papers aim to discuss the ways in which scholarly practices have changed in the last decades, even since the end of the last century, in teaching and in research, in various disciplines like history, phisics and biomedical sciences.

Abstract

Cosa cambia nelle abitudini di lettura di chi sceglie di leggere un ebook? In che modo l’editoria affronta i cambiamenti che il digitale porta con sé? Qual è il ruolo del web nel determinare queste trasformazioni? A queste ed altre domande un gruppo di undici book bloggers, riuniti in occasione di LibrInnovando 2011, tenta di rispondere in questo libro. A partire da un’idea di Marco Giacomello, gli autori offrono riflessioni e ricerche originali, utili tanto al lettore incuriosito dalle possibilità della lettura digitale quanto al professionista – l’editore, l’autore, il libraio – che si trova a vivere i mutamenti dell’editoria. Ma se cambiano i libri, cambia anche il modo di fare e diffondere cultura in Italia: l’ebook apre nuove possibilità di condivisione e socializzazione del sapere, che bisogna, criticamente, saper cogliere. Questo volume, parlando senza eccessivi tecnicismi e sempre con un profondo rispetto del lettore, sviluppa alcuni punti nodali e indica delle strade percorribili.

Abstract

Archaeologists in Print is a history of popular publishing in archaeology in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a pivotal period of expansion and development in both archaeology and publishing. It examines how British archaeologists produced books and popular periodical articles for a non-scholarly audience, and explores the rise in archaeologists’ public visibility. Notably, it analyses women’s experiences in archaeology alongside better known male contemporaries as shown in their books and archives. In the background of this narrative is the history of Britain’s imperial expansion and contraction, and the evolution of modern tourism in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East. Archaeologists exploited these factors to gain public and financial support and interest, and build and maintain a reading public for their work, supported by the seasonal nature of excavation and tourism. Reinforcing these publishing activities through personal appearances in the lecture hall, exhibition space and site tour, and in new media – film, radio and television – archaeologists shaped public understanding of archaeology. It was spadework, scripted.

Abstract

How and Why to Read and Create Children's Digital Books outlines effective ways of using digital books in early years and primary classrooms, and specifies the educational potential of using digital books and apps in physical spaces and virtual communities. With a particular focus on apps and personalised reading, Natalia Kucirkova combines theory and practice to argue that personalised reading is only truly personalised when it is created or co-created by reading communities. Divided into two parts, Part I suggests criteria to evaluate the educational quality of digital books and practical strategies for their use in the classroom. Specific attention is paid to the ways in which digital books can support individual children’s strengths and difficulties, digital literacies, language and communication skills. Part II explores digital books created by children, their caregivers, teachers and librarians, and Kucirkova also offers insights into how smart toys, tangibles and augmented/virtual reality tools can enrich children’s reading for pleasure.

Abstract

Conoscere il campo da gioco permette di superare gli stereotipi ed evitare contrapposizioni pregiudiziali tra favorevoli al digitale e contrari più tradizionalisti… L’impatto delle tecnologie nella didattica impone una trasformazione del modello attuale: come (e perché) la tecnologia può agevolare e accompagnare questo cambio di paradigma? Quali sono i progetti didattici già attivi in Italia e chi ne sono i fautori? Ne emerge un quadro della scuola italiana che, in mezzo a resistenze e difficoltà, cerca di aprirsi all’innovazione digitale. Il volume è un’agile bussola della transizione al digitale della scuola italiana e degli editori scolastici.

Abstract

Leading publishers and observers of the science publishing scene comment in essay form on key developments over the past century. The scale of the global research effort and its industrial organisation have resulted in substantial increases in the published volume, as well as new techniques for its handling. The former languages of science communication, like Latin and German, have given way to English. The domination of European science before WWII has been followed by large efforts in North America and the Far East. The roots of the National Library of Medicine lie in the US Army medical library, the US War effort gave rise to hypertext, and the US defense reaction to the Soviet Sputnik resulted in the Internet. The European invention of the Web has also changed the science publishing scene in the past five years. Some characteristic publishing enterprises, commercial and society owned, are described in a series of articles. These are followed by analysis of recent developments and possible changes to come. Functions of publishers, librarians and agents are brought into context. The future of publishing is currently being debated on open channels, while the historical dimension and professional input are sometimes lacking.

Abstract

Questo volume, alla sua seconda edizione, la prima in cartaceo, riporta e commenta i dati di un indagine Nielsen commissionata dal Centro per il Libro e la Lettura, oltre ad arrichirsi di alcune appendici sul futuro dei libri di testo, degli ebook in biblioteca (il digital lending) e sulle problematiche legate alla proprietà intellettuale. La crisi dei dati di vendita dei libri cartacei, che ha caratterizzato il 2012, che influsso avrà sul mercato editoriale? Quale sarà l’andamento del mercato editoriale digitale? Il volume esamina ed aiuta a capire le motivazioni della forte contrazione delle vendite, andando poi a toccare temi di fondamentale importanza per il settore editoriale, come i rapporti fra il digitale ed libri di testo, le biblioteche e la proprietà intellettuale.

Publishing of diaries and biographies is a lucrative business, fictional texts are always looking close to real people and events that a market for the "sale" of life stories has become established. The development of law against this practice is fallen behind. The present study focuses on two questions circles. The first focus is on the systematization of the decision parameters and the derivation of concrete responses from the basics of intellectual property law.

Abstract

Even earlier than other sectors of society, science was confronted with the Internet as a new communication medium. Yet it has lasted several years until the Internet has gained reputation as a publication medium for scientists. This development is accompanied by an increasing concentration on the side of scientific publishers, which has lead for some disciplines to almost monopolistic situations. Conversely, the financial resources to purchase and provide access to scientific publications are shrinking on the side of the customers - libraries and researchers, but also other sectors of the public. This results in a disastrous spiral, known as the so-called "publication crisis." As one solution to this crisis new publication concepts using the internet have emerged. They are characterized by the fact that they provide access to scientific works largely free and unrestricted - Open Access. This book "Legal Framework for Open Access" is designed as a practical guide and aims to help authors who want to publish Open Access. The content includes: Introduction to Open Access • Facts on Copyrights • Open Access in Universities • Open Access Licenses • Technical protection measures and Open Access • Retrodigitalisation issues • Liability of institutional repositories for archived Open Access publications • Implications regarding competition law • Public legal and organizational framework for Open Access
