NMRT special e-board meeting, November 3, 2011

Today I am calling for a special electronic board meeting to be delivered through our ALA Connect space.

A proposal has been posted in Connect from Megan Hodge (NMRT Leadership Director) to Accept a Copyright Agreement for EndNotes (http://connect.ala.org/node/157878). This proposal was previously discussed at the electronic meeting of the NMRT Executive Board on 10/25/2011. Discussion was tabled until the Copyright Agreement could be reviewed by the ALA Rights and Permissions staff. They have approved the document as is.

Endnotes is planning on a mid-November publication. We need to complete discussion and vote on the proposal as soon as possible so that Endnotes has the possibility of distributing the proposed copyright form to this issue's authors. I therefore request that Board participation be as quick as possible so that a decision is made on this issue before close of business on Monday, November 7.

[09:59:03 am] Melissa Mallon: Hi everyone, I don't have a mic so I'll be speaking via chat.

[09:59:30 am] Melissa Mallon: We are proposing the acceptance of a copyright form for Endnotes authors.

[10:00:13 am] Coral Sheldon-Hess: I apologize if I missed it. Was the form posted anywhere?

[10:00:20 am] Melissa Mallon: My assistant chair, Melanie Griffin, drafted up a copyright agreement form that mimics the one used by C&RL.

[10:00:28 am] Megan Hodge: http://connect.ala.org/node/157878

[10:00:52 am] Melissa Mallon: Does anyone have any questions for Megan and I?

[10:01:02 am] Coral Sheldon-Hess: Thanks, Megan!

[10:02:09 am] Susan Jennings: Coral http://connect.ala.org/node/157878)

[10:02:20 am] Rebecca Miller: First of all, I think this is great (Happy Open Access Week!)

[10:02:23 am] Susan Jennings: oops... I should read ahead

[10:02:26 am] Coral Sheldon-Hess: Thanks, Susan :)

[10:02:31 am] Rebecca Miller: I am wondering about the possible archiving of the signed forms, though

[10:02:37 am] Melissa Mallon: I think it would be a good idea for all contributers to complete a form - both article authors and reviewers.

[10:02:54 am] Melissa Mallon: Yes, I wonder about that too, Rebecca!

[10:02:57 am] Coral Sheldon-Hess: They could "e-sign" it, so we don't have to keep paper copies.

[10:03:20 am] Janel Kinlaw: they should probably be added to the NMRT Archives database

[10:03:26 am] Deana Groves: Coral that would be the best solution

[10:03:33 am] Coral Sheldon-Hess: In some places, that's just typing your name and a date. There are fancier solutions requiring a digitized signature or ... I dunno, other fancy stuff.

[10:03:48 am] Linda Crook: How many authors per issue, Melissa?

[10:03:55 am] Kimberly Redd: The forms can be sent to me and filed here at ALA

[10:03:57 am] Susan Jennings: Could that be an intermediary page when authors contribute?

[10:04:03 am] Janel Kinlaw: I think making a PDF of the document with some kind of name on it would work

[10:04:12 am] Susan Jennings: something like "By clicking submit you agree to this...."

[10:04:14 am] Linda Crook: Thanks, Kim!

[10:04:28 am] Megan Hodge: Or they could e-mail a scanned, signed copy if an actual signature is necessary.

[10:04:43 am] Melissa Mallon: Actually, I think Melanie did set up a pdf that can be filled out.

[10:04:51 am] Susan Jennings: I've done that before, Megan...

[10:05:08 am] Janel Kinlaw: Are we archiving Footnotes & Endnotes now?

[10:05:10 am] Rebecca Miller: And it's been suggested that the forms be archived (1) in the NMRT Archives or (2) with ALA

[10:05:25 am] Janel Kinlaw: I think they are just being linked to on the websites

[10:05:31 am] Melissa Mallon: There are usually about 3 articles and 4-5 reviews.

[10:06:46 am] Melissa Mallon: Would it be acceptable to have authors attach the completed forms to me and then I can forward them to Kim?

[10:07:52 am] Janel Kinlaw: I think that process makes sense

[10:08:00 am] Janel Kinlaw: we might want to talk about a different solution for long-term

[10:08:08 am] Janel Kinlaw: are these forms only valid for a certain time

[10:08:19 am] Janel Kinlaw: does an author have to fill them out again if another article is included?

[10:08:48 am] Deana Groves: I think they have to indicate the name of the manuscript so would need new ones each time,

[10:09:00 am] Melissa Mallon: I think it would be a good idea to have an author fill out a new form each time they contribute something new to the journal.

[10:09:05 am] Megan Hodge: Yes--there's a space for that just under "Journal of First Publication"

[10:09:10 am] Melissa Mallon: What Deana said :)

[10:09:11 am] Megan Hodge: And I agree with Melissa

[10:09:27 am] Jonathan Lu: Yes they would have to submit a new form for each new article.

[10:09:41 am] Linda Crook: Sounds good

[10:10:04 am] Janel Kinlaw: thanks for the answers =)

[10:10:11 am] Melissa Mallon: Sure!

[10:10:16 am] Linda Crook: We can polish the work-flow as it is implemented

[10:10:28 am] Kimberly Redd: I just spoke with Lorelle.  The signed forms need to be sent to ALA.  She also mentioned that the form would need to be reviewed by the ALA Rights and Permissions staff.

[10:10:46 am] Linda Crook: Thank you, Kim - quick work!

[10:11:06 am] Deana Groves: I move we table the discussion until ALA reviews.

[10:11:30 am] Janel Kinlaw: second the move to table

[10:11:32 am] Melissa Mallon: Okay! We might not have the forms ready for our next issue (to be published in mid Nov), but that's okay.

[10:12:09 am] Deana Groves: If they approve soon, Linda can call a special e-board meeting to approve.

[10:12:11 am] Linda Crook: Discussion on the motion to table?

[10:12:37 am] Megan Hodge: Kim, should we just forward the form to you/Lorelle, or are there other steps that need to be taken in addition?

[10:13:04 am] Kimberly Redd: To me and I will have it reviewed right away

 

From Kim 11/02: I just received feedback [from ALA Rights & Permissions staff] and the agreement is good as is.

From Kim 11/02: Yes [authors should send completed forms to me], I will keep them on file here at ALA.

Hello! 

As I said at the last meeting, I really like this form. I hope that we can ratify it. (Do we need to so move? I've never been to an asynchronous meeting before!)

I would like to propose the acceptance of a copyright form for Endnotes authors (see above for link to actual form). This copyright form makes explicit that copyright for any works published by NMRT will remain with the author(s), which keeps NMRT in alignment with ALA values. Completed forms will be sent to NMRT Staff Liaison Kim Redd for archival at ALA. The form has been approved by ALA Rights & Permissions staff.

Coral Sheldon-Hess (non-member)'s picture

I would like to second Megan's proposal.

I'm not sure we had a quorum when you made your proposal. Let me make sure before we keep going.

Linda Crook

We had you, Janel, Coral, Deana, and me--that's five.

Unfortunately I don't count! We're okay now with Susan. Sorry about that.

We have quorum so I would like to begin the meeting. Our only agenda item for this meeting is the proposal brought forth by Megan Hodge. Megan stated her proposal shortly before we gained a quorum; for formality's sake, Megan, could you re-state your motion?

I thought I counted five! The proposal is below.
