Ask the Scholarly Kitchen Chefs

by | Nov 13, 2023 | 0 comments



Three of the Scholarly Kitchen Chefs discussed various current issues. How will we move money to publishers doing the work? We need to move quickly to get ahead of AI developments which are spurring an explosion of knowledge. What is the role of research libraries? What should we be doing in our operations? Alice Meadows, Co-founder of the More Brains Cooperative, said trust and research integrity are key, and more needs to be done. Todd Carpenter, NISO Executive Director said that AI is not the next heresy, and there are many opportunities with a natural language model Linked data has not solved all of our problems, and scholarly publishing is not like it used to be; it builds on what we have already learned. Robert Harrington, Associate Executive Director, American Mathematical Society (AMS) noted that if you want quality information, you must pay for it. When OA is on the horizon, what does it mean for our community. Green OA works for the AMS. We are seeing increases in the ways mathematics is being applied to the world. Will we face a change in attribution and copyright? AI will bring a large understanding of who or what an author is.

How can governments intervene in the library world? The Nelson Memo and Plan S won’t tell us what will happen to scholarly publishing. Todd said that we have talked about how to influence researchers to use money from grants to pay publication fees. We need to motivate them through promotion and tenure, but this will take a few years to do.

Is it time to put restrictions on AI? Researchers must be responsible for their work and follow the rules in journals’ Author Guidelines. Publications have been using text and data mining to develop models, and Google has been training search systems using published content.
