The first issue of the open-access MOSF Journal of Science Fiction is now online. MOSF is the forthcoming new museum of science fiction.

It seems that the Yale undergraduate journal of classics, formerly the snappily titled Hey, Zeus!, has now quietly morphed into the more sombre Helicon : the Yale Undergraduate Journal of Classics.

OAPEN-UK’s final report on open access monographs, OAPEN-UK final report: A five-year study into open access monograph publishing in the humanities and social sciences.
“Many libraries will […] be providing links to the open access copies of monographs through their discovery systems, but librarians are not always aware of this. A minority are also reluctant to include open access content within their catalogues.”
“30% of respondents currently identify open access monographs for inclusion within their library collections – 49% do not, while 21% were unsure.” — Librarian survey for the report.
Unsure about including OA at all, or unsure if anyone on staff was identifying OA items?
“There are also large numbers of researchers – especially early career and retired academics – who do extremely valuable research which deserves publication but who work outside academic institutions. Changing publishing culture in a way that affected these researchers negatively would damage the overall discipline.”

20,000 hi-res British historical artworks in the public domain, newly online from the Yale Center for British Art. My test downloads freely yeiled up hi-res .TIF files, with only a simple numerical “captcha” to fill before each download.
Size seems to be 3000px at 300dpi, around 18Mb to 20Mb, which is suitable for a magazine double-page spread. There are often lengthy curatorial commentaries, though these are presumably not in the public domain.
Re-finding seems impossible, with the numbers embedded in each file name being unknown to either Google or the Yale Center for British Art website search, so one would do well to save a PDF of each picture’s page along with its hi-res file. Or the simple .txt of the caption, which excludes the curatorial commentary, though the picture’s given title is not always clearly indicated in this.
“The French Lady in London”, c. 1771. French hairdressers residing in London “were often singled out for particular opprobrium”, and their extraordinarily elaborate creations in women’s hairstyles were the subject of caricature in the press.
The new New York Public Library public domain scans website seems to have sorted out its launch difficulties. Visitors can now sort-of enjoy everything from enormous numbers of complete sets of old cigarette cards to old photography of New York City.
I say ‘sort-of’ because I found that every test item I tried was capped at 720px, and the hi-res versions are only obtainable on payment. The site’s image URL path is also hidden from Google, so one can’t use Google Images to find just the free hi-res versions, if there are any.
Overall, despite its very large scope and quality selection, the huge paywall means that it’s hardly the most exemplary presentation of public domain material.

Byron Russell, manager of Ingentaconnect, wants to search only for freely re-usable Open Access articles, but finds that ‘the Google moment’ for such a search hasn’t arrived yet…
Run a Google search on “Mendelian dominance open access” and the first two hits are for one publisher – the OMICS Group.
Judging from my Google Search results to recreate his search, what he actually tried to search for was: Mendelian dominance open access — without the quote marks. Difficult to see how such a loose search would find something worth having. But even if he’d then gone on to say… ‘so, we need to teach students how to search Google properly…’, his article’s point would have been much the same. Even using sophisticated Google search methods, one still gets mired amid a swamp of Powerpoints, K-12 lesson plans, student quizzes, wikis, high-ranking predatory journal articles and other junk.
JURN does a fairly good job with…
Mendel “dominance” “Commons Attribution” -noncommercial
Having Mendel without quote marks in that way, catches Mendel | Mendel’s | Mendelian | since Google automatically expands the name.
The target CC content, as currently found on OA journals via JURN, seems to reside almost entirely in PLOS, Pubmed, Springer and a few others.
But there’s more in the hybrid journals. So one can also approximate a main Google Search across the large publishers, Elsevier for instance, via something like…
site:www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/ “Commons Attribution” -noncommercial -“non-commercial”
For Oxford Journals it’s slightly different…
inurl:oxfordjournals.org “Commons Attribution” -“non-commercial”
(Google will probably flash up an annoying “captcha” to make sure you’re not a robot, at that point, if you’ve worked the examples down to this point).
And so on… one could just work through the larger publishers that way. For Springer most of the work has already been done by Paperity, although Paperity still lacks coverage of a couple of OA Springer titles.
It’s certainly not ideal, as Russell suggests. On the other hand, one might ask why someone needs to find just the CC-BY content on a topic. Perhaps it’s actually quite useful that a big publisher would find it difficult to automatically siphon all known CC-BY articles and books into its own giant repository, slap on some search, mining, overlay journal and themed book-compiling tools, and then sell access to it.
