      Treviño-García, Roberto (2002) Hacia la biblioteca pública moderna. In
      Proceedings Segundo Congreso Nacional de Bibliotecas Públicas :
      "Estrategias y Proyectos para el Desarrollo", pp.146-150, Guadalajara,
      Jalisco (Mexico).
      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] Esta ponencia está dirigida a la modernización
      de las bibliotecas públicas a través de una serie de mecanismos e
      innovaciones tendientes a agilizar, acelerar, especializar y alfabetizar
      los procesos de acceso a la información, a la lectura, a los servicios
      bibliotecarios. Se establece como máxima prioridad de las bibliotecas
      públicas su transformación de ua pasiva a una moderna bajo el concepto de
      espacio cultural. Todo ello para crear, con la modernidad, un ciudadano más
      capacitado, tecnológica y culturalmente habilitado para entender e
      incorporarse a los avances científicos, a la exigencia de la comunidad
      internacional sobre el respeto a los derechos humanos y a la participación
      en el proceso democrático del país. [English abstract] This paper addresses
      the modernization of public libraries through a series of mechanisms and
      innovations leading to speed, especialize and literate the process of
      access to information, reading, and library services. It sets as a high
      priority for public libraries their transformation from passive to modern
      ones under the concept of cultural space. All of this in order to create,
      with this modernization, a citizen more trained and enabled technologically
      and culturally to extend and access the scientific breakthroughs combined
      with the expectations of the international community focusing as well on
      the human rights and the participation in the democratic process of Mexico.

      Muela-Meza, Zapopan Martín (2002) ¿Dónde quedaron los administradores del
      acceso a la información en la nueva Ley de Acceso a la Información?. In
      Proceedings Foros de Consulta Popular Sobre el Derecho al Acceso a la
      Información, Monterrey, Nuevo León (Mexico).
      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] El presente trabajo trata de la Ley de
      Transparencia y Acceso a la Información Pública Gubernamental, cuya
      iniciativa de ley ha sido aprobada el 22 de abril de 2002 por la Comisión
      de Gobernación de la Cámara de Diputados. No entra en debate sobre lo que
      se ha venido discutiendo en el mundo iniciando con Suecia en 1766, o más
      recientemente en México desde los años setenta, sobre cuál información debe
      ser accesible al público y cuál no. Creemos que esta iniciativa de ley ha
      sido bastante debatida en su contenido y, aunque aún da para mucho más,
      bien podría empezar felizmente su camino hasta ser aprobada dentro de un
      año. Esta contribución, en cambio, viene a reivindicar a los
      administradores del acceso a la información (para efectos del presente le
      llamamos así a los bibliotecarios y archivistas, los eslabones perdidos de
      la cadena de la información de esta iniciativa de Ley). [English abstract]
      This paper (Why have been left out the information workers who give access
      to information at the new Mexican Law of Access and Freedom to
      Information?) discusses the issues of the Mexican Law of Transparency and
      Access to the Public Governmental Information, which initiative has been
      aproved on April 22nd 2002 by the Federal Commission of Interior at the
      Mexican Parliament. It does not debate on which materials should or should
      not be disclosed and accessible to the public. It is believed that this Law
      has been abundantly debated on the grounds of its content, and even that
      the debate could go on for longer time, it could be pass as a ruling law in
      2003. This contribution, on the other hand, reivindicate the role of
      information workers (librarians and archivists) who are the missing links
      on this chain of information access. It fully advocate for the leading role
      of librarians and archivists to be considered on this law so that citizens
      will actually have guaranteed the real access to information by the
      experts: librarians and archivists, otherwise they may have the right to
      access public information, but that alone is not enough. Librarians and
      archivists, information workers, are the only true people who would
      guarantee this access to information in Mexico or anywhere; and they are
      the ones neglected in Mexico.

      Lencinas, Verónica (2004) Algunas problemáticas relacionadas con las TICs y
      la bibliotecología. In Proceedings 1er Foro Social de Información,
      Documentación y Bibliotecas, Buenos Aires (Argentina).
      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] El presente trabajo introduce algunas
      problemáticas de las Tecnologías de Información y Comunicación (TICs) poco
      difundidas en la bibliotecología latinoamericana. Planteamos aspectos que,
      en la implementación de servicios automatizados en las bibliotecas, exigen
      tanto de sistemas de control de acceso y protección de datos como también
      de una decisión respecto al almacenamiento de los datos de circulación.
      Mencionamos algunos aspectos vinculados con las TICs y la lectura, lo cual
      tiene profundas implicancias en el uso y aprovechamiento de los contenidos
      presentes en los libros. Asimismo invitamos a una reflexión sobre el rol
      que, educadores y bibliotecas adjudican a estos fenómenos. Los problemas
      vinculados con la propiedad de las TICs y las posibles consecuencias para
      las bibliotecas también son expuestos para arribar a una reflexión final
      sobre el rol y la función de bibliotecas y bibliotecarios en la sociedad de
      la información. [English abstract] This paper addresses some issues about
      the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) not much discussed on
      the library and information science (LIS) field in Latin America. It states
      some aspects of the implementation of automated LIS services which demand
      both systems of access control and data protection and a decision for the
      storage of circulationg data. It discusses some issues where ICTs are
      linked with reading, which have deep implications on the use and
      comprehension of the contents of books. At the same time it invites
      educators and librarians to the reflection of the roles they award to such
      phenomena. The issues linked to the apropriation of ICTs and the possible
      consequences for libraries are also discussed in order to bring about a
      final reflection on the role and function of libraries and librarians on
      the information society.

      Muela-Meza, Zapopan Martín (2005) La era del estado empresarial versus el
      dominio público informacional y cognitivo. Razón y Palabra Abril-Mayo
      2005(44).
      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] Se analizan los conceptos de estado,
      corporaciones empresariales -su equivalente a corporation en inglés--, el
      dominio público. El trabajo en su conjunto mantiene la tesis de que hoy en
      día las sociedades regidas por sistemas capitalistas-imperialistas de
      producción, sus estados están profundamente fusionados a las corporaciones
      empresariales y ambos órdenes se han convertido en uno mismo e indivisible.
      Así, se analiza como con el advenimiento de este estado empresarial la
      humanidad entra a una de sus fases más críticas y cruciales, donde si las
      fuerzas alternativas al capitalismo-imperialismo no son capaces de someter
      a su agente principal, que es la corporación empresarial, o en su defecto
      desmantelarla, se corre el riesgo de que ésta socave y destruya por
      completo todo el orden democrático.. Particularmente, en todo el trabajo se
      evidencian diversos factores donde el estado empresarial ha corroído
      parcialmente el dominio público en el sector bibliotecario mediante la
      mercantilización, y privatización de sus servicios. Se evidencia también el
      carácter falto de ética, moral y manifiestamente psicopático de la
      corporación empresarial. Finalmente se aboga por el restablecimiento del
      dominio público y el sometimiento legal de la corporación mercantilista
      mediante la fiscalización y llamado a cuentas de sus miembros de manera
      individual como ciudadanos comunes. [English abstract] This article (The
      age of the corporate state versus the informational and cognitive public
      domain) analyses the concepts of state, corporations, and the public
      domain. It sustains the thesis that nowadays societies ruled by
      capitalist/empirialist systems of production, their states are deeply fused
      to corporations and both orders have merged into an indivisible one. It
      analyses that with the advent of this corporate state humankind falls into
      one of its most critical and crucial stages, where if the forces
      alternative to capitalism / empirialism are not capable to submit to the
      rule of law its prime agent, which is the corporate state, or even to
      dismantle it, humankind faces the risk that the corporate state will
      hollow-out or destroy completely the democratic order. Particularly, all
      along the work several factors show evidence of how the corporate state has
      partially rusted the public domain on the library and information sector by
      means of the marketization and privatization of its services. It criticizes
      the lack of ethics, and moral and the psychopath features of corporations.
      Finally it advocates for the return of the public domain and for the
      control of the corporation through the call for accountability of its power
      and all of the members on an individual basis of each corporation under the
      rule of law so they could be judged individually as any other common
      citizen.

      Dyer-Witheford, Nick (1999) Cyber-Marx : cycles and circuits of struggle in
      high technology capitalism. PhD Thesis, Departament of Sociology,
      University of Illinois (USA).
      Abstract: In this highly readable and thought-provoking work, Nick
      Dyer-Witheford assesses the relevance of Marxism in our time and
      demonstrates how the information age, far from transcending the historic
      conflict between capital and its laboring subjects, constitutes the latest
      battleground in their encounter. Dyer-Witheford maps the dynamics of modern
      capitalism, showing how capital depends for its operations not just on
      exploitation in the immediate workplace but on the continuous integration
      of a whole series of social sites and activities, from public health and
      maternity to natural resource allocation and the geographical
      reorganization of labor power. He also shows how these sites and activities
      may become focal points of subversion and insurgency, as new means of
      communication vital for the smooth flow of capital also permit otherwise
      isolated and dispersed points of resistance to connect and combine with one
      another. Dyer-Witheford predicts the advent of a reinvented, "autonomist"
      Marxism that will rediscover the possibility of a collective, communist
      transformation of society. Refuting the utopian promises of the information
      revolution, he discloses the real potentialities for a new social order in
      the form of a twenty-first-century communism based on the common sharing of
      wealth.

      facilitador del libre acceso a la información. In Proceedings Foros de
      Consulta Popular Sobre el Derecho al Acceso a la Información, Monterrey,
      Nuevo León (Mexico).
      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] La Ley de Acceso a la Información Pública, es
      muy loable en su esencia democratizadora, de la cual no se abunda en este
      trabajo, sino que se analiza la importancia de la función del Profesional
      de la Información como organizador y asesor en la búsqueda y obtención de
      información. Se analiza la relación entre democracia y las bibliotecas com
      una relación simbiótica, sería imposible tener una sin la otra. La
      democracia reviste poder supremo en la gente. Las bibliotecas hacen que la
      democracia trabaje a través del suministro para el acceso de información de
      manera que los ciudadanos pueden tomar decisiones necesarias para
      autogobernarse. Las bibliotecas ponen a disponibilidad de todos el
      conocimiento y las ideas, sin importar edad, raza, credo, género o
      posición. Las bibliotecas proveen la información que promueve el debate
      civil y fomenta la buena vecindad. [English abstract] Paper title: The
      information professional as a facilitator to the free access to
      information. The Mexican Law for Access to Public Information is very
      plausible on its democratic essence, an issue this paper does not address,
      instead, it is analysed the importance of the function of the professional
      of information as an organizer and advisor on the search and retrieval of
      information. The relationship between democracy and libraries is analised
      as a simbiotic one where it could be impossible imagine one without the
      other. Whereas democracy holds its supreme powers on people, libraries make
      democracy works for the people through the provision of access to
      information so its citizens can be enabled to make the necessary decisions
      for their self government. Libraries make available to all the people
      knowledge and ideas, regardless their age, race, creed, gender or social
      position and also provide them with information to foster the civil debate
      and the good neighbourghood.

      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] La edición electrónica abre nuevas
      posibilidades de uso de los artículos publicados a través de las revistas
      científicas. La transferencia o la retención de los derechos de autor por
      parte de los investigadores es tema actual de debate. Como conclusiones se
      conviene que la publicación en acceso abierto puede mantener las garantías
      de protección de la propiedad intelectual del autor y que, en su caso, la
      transferencia de los derechos de explotación al editor debe garantizar los
      usos razonables de la comunicación científica. [English abstract]
      Electronic publishing is opening a new range of usage possibilites for
      articles published in scientific journals. Transfer or retention of
      copyright by researchers is currently under discussion. The author
      concludes that open access publishing is able to protect the intellectual
      property and that transfer of copyright to a publisher must keep the
      guarantee of allowing reasonable uses within the frame of scientific
      communication.

      Gallart Marsillas, Núria (1998) The Library in the card : results from
      DECOMATE project and current developments at UAB. In Smith, John W.T. and
      Rowland, Fytton, Eds. Proceedings Electronic Publishing '98 : Towards the
      Information-Rich Society, pp.94-100, Budapest (Hungary).
      Abstract: The Library in the card is the slogan which would summarize the
      aims of the UAB Library Service in its involvement in several EC Libraries
      Programme projects. It refers to the possibility for a member of the UAB
      community to access whatever document he/she needs from his/her desktop on
      time. The identity card should be the key which opens his/her library
      without hours and place constraints. This paper would like to explain the
      results from the DECOMATE project one year after its completion, to have a
      look into UAB usage studies and further conclusions and to make the
      audience aware of planned work in the follow up project DECOMATE II. In a
      summary UAB Library Service is currently offering the UAB community (35.000
      students, 2.500 academic staff and 1.500 administrative staff) access to
      267 scientific journals at their wish. Articles are provided by three
      publishers (Elsevier Science, Kluwer Academic Publishers and the own UAB
      Publications Service) directly on electronic form, including the
      bibliographic data. DECOMATE is the modular and generic system which allows
      the management of authorization/identification of users, encryption of
      transactions, searches in the bibliographical database using Z39.50
      standard, retrieval of articles PDF files and extraction of statistical
      usage data with postprocessing purposes. This service became operational on
      October 1996 with a small set of titles and after the pilot phase and
      optimal results, it was enlarged with many more titles in order to cover
      far more scientific areas. Partners in DECOMATE project, namely Tilburg
      University, London School of Economics and Universitat Autonoma de
      Barcelona, with the additional collaboration of the European University
      Institute and SilverPlatter company, submitted a proposal for a follow up
      project to the 1997 Call of Proposals of the EC Libraries Programme which
      has been approuved. Project's work started in February 1998. DECOMATE II
      stands as a short name for Developing the European Digital Library for
      Economics whichs builds on the former experience of DECOMATE project and
      aims to enhance its features with the addition of . distributed searching
      of heterogeneous information resources within a specific scientific area,
      Economics, . access to services provided by different libraries in Europe
      through a single uniform interface, . integration of current awareness
      services, . development of an information browker module with advanced
      capabilities for deduplication, ranking, tracing of documents,
      implementation of thesauri and subject matching algorithms, . integration
      of an accounting module which allows the library to extend its services to
      external users with compliance of commercial providers conditions.

      Mayr, Philipp and Tosques, Fabio (2005) Google Web APIs – an Instrument for
      Webometric Analyses?. In Proceedings 10th International Conference of the
      International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics 2005, Stockholm
      (Sweden).
      Abstract: This poster introduces Google Web APIs (Google APIs) as an
      instrument and playground for webometric studies. Several examples of
      Google APIs implementations in the context of webometrics are given. Our
      examples show that this Google Web Service can be used successfully for
      informetric Internet based studies albeit with some restrictions. E.g. we
      can show that hit results from the two different Google interfaces: Google
      APIs and the standard interface Google.com vary in range, structure und
      availability. Our poster demonstrates first results of our research with
      Google APIs, gives implementation examples and makes possibilities and
      restrictions of the Google APIs clearer. We performed time series with the
      Google APIs and analyzed journal title web coverage, top level domain and
      file format distributions. Further, we hope to stimulate informetric
      researchers to evaluate and use the so far unused Google APIs for their
      Internet research. We came to the conclusion that the Google APIs are a
      very helpful instrument for web data gathering and webometric research.

      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] Para que en las bibliotecas públicas se de un
      acceso gratuito, igualitario y democrático a los recursos informativos
      éstas deben romper con varias barreras; existen barreras económicas,
      sociales, políticas, legales, culturales, lingüísticas, entre muchas otras.
      Este trabajo destaca la importancia que tiene para la comunidad
      bibliotecaria comprender la vinculación entre la política y las bibliotecas
      públicas y los bibliotecarios. Muestra como el hecho de que la comunidad
      bibliotecaria al no asumir un papel político bibliotecario y querer
      mantenerse al margen de todo lo que tenga que ver con política,
      automáticamente está asumiendo un papel político de desconocimiento, y al
      no actuar de acuerdo a cualquier situación política dada en materia
      bibliotecaria se convierte en una barrera más del desarrollo de las
      bibliotecas públicas; se convierte en una barrera política más que lejos de
      resolver los problemas bibliotecarios acuciantes se convierte en parte del
      problema. Da también algunos ejemplos concretos de barreras políticas en la
      realidad mexicana y aborda una serie de recomendaciones para que la
      comunidad bibliotecaria le haga frente a dichas barreras. [English
      abstract] Paper title: "An approximation to the political barriers in the
      Mexican public libraries." Public libraries need, in order to guarantee
      their users an access free of charge, egalitarian and democratic to their
      information resources Para que en las bibliotecas públicas se de un acceso
      gratuito, to break several barriers. There are several barrier hampering
      users access to information in public libraries: economic, social,
      political, legal, cultural, linguistic and others. This papers focuses the
      importance for the Library and Information Studies professionals (LIS) to
      understand the link between politics and public libraries and librarians.
      It argues that when LIS professionals do not assume a political role in LIS
      politics and when they deliberately keep away from library politics,
      automatically they are playing the political role of unawareness, and their
      lack of political participation on any library matters make them a
      political barrier too against the development of public libraries. They
      become a political barrier which far from solving the fundamental library
      problems they become a part of the problem. It shows some specific examples
      of political barriers in the Mexican scenario and it proposes several
      recommendations for the LIS professionals so they may be better prepared to
      cope with those barriers.

      and elaboration of a directory of spanish congresses about Latin American
      Studies. On the basis of these experiences this paper proposes the
      necessity of a pragmatic approach to carry out this type of cooperations.

      presentació d'una eina d'anàlisi i estat de la qüestió a les comarques de
      Girona. Item : revista de biblioteconomia i documentació(29):pp.57-80.
      Abstract: [Catalan abstract] Anàlisi dels continguts i de la gestió dels
      lloc web dels ajuntaments de les comarques de Girona. Els ajuntaments
      catalans s'estan fent visibles a Internet, amb l'oferta de serveis que els
      són propis. L'estudi té una doble vessant. D'una banda, s'ha confeccionat
      una taula d'avaluació per a llocs web d'ajuntament, extrapolable a d'altres
      anàlisis, que es basa en les possibilitats de gestió de la web i l'interès
      que té per als ciutadans. De l'altra, es presenta l'estat de la qüestió a
      la província de Girona a 1 de gener de 2001. L'estudi destaca greus
      deficiències, com la falta de interactivitat amb els ciutadans, la manca
      d'un bon sistema de recuperació i difusió de les pàgines web i la gairebé
      inexistència d'ús dels llenguatges d'autodescripció estàndards. Finalment,
      l'article conclou amb un seguit de propostes que poden tenir presents els
      responsables dels ajuntaments electrònics per millorar-los. [English
      abstract] Research on the contents and management of the town council
      websites from Girona province (Spain). Catalan town council are becoming
      visible on the Internet offering their basic and characteristic services.
      The research is focused on two main aspects. First, we have created an
      evaluation table for town council websites. This table, which is valuable
      for further researches, is based on the possibilities of management of the
      web and its interest for users. On the other hand, it presents the state of
      the art in the province of Girona on January 1st 2001. The survey points
      out serious deficiencies, such as the lack of interaction with citizens,
      the lack of an adequate system of web pages retrieval and diffusion, and
      the practically non-existent use of standard auto-descriptive languages
      (metadata). Finally, the paper concludes with a range of improving measures
      likely to be taken into account by the people in charge of the "electronic
      town councils".

      Abstract: [Portuguese Abstract] Discute a importância da biblioteca virtual
      para o ensino a distância de qualquer curso; para tal o bibliotecário deve
      ser elemento indispensável na equipe de EAD uma vez que ele conhece as
      fontes e as formas de organização da informação, o que lhe possibilita
      atuar inclusive como tutor. Recomenda-se a intervenção do bibliotecário já
      na fase de planejamento do curso de tal forma que a biblioteca resultante
      seja um produto/processo tão importante quanto os demais componentes
      curriculares e customizada ao curso em questão. Destaca a gestão da
      informação nos sites educacionais, essa outra modalidade de EAD na formação
      continuada de professores. [English Abstract] Discusses the importance of
      the virtual library in distance learning of any course; for such the
      librarian must be an essential element in the Distance Learning team as he
      knows the sources and the ways of information organization, that makes
      possible to him to act as tutor also. The intervention of the librarian in
      the phase of planning of the course is recommended in such a way that the
      resultant library will be a product/process as important as the the rest of
      the curricular components and it should be customized according to the
      referred course. It emphasizes the management of information in educational
      sites, another model of Distance Learning in the continued formation of
      teachers.

      Abstract: [Portuguese Abstract] Buscamos compreender o funcionamento
      discursivo das práticas de gestão administrativa do discurso científico
      presentes nas bases de dados bibliográficas. Enfocaremos particularmente o
      corpus composto pelos resumos e descritores da base de dados SOCIOFILE -
      Sociological Abstracts. Esta base produzida nos Estados Unidos contém os
      resumos de artigos de cerca de 2.000 periódicos, além de teses, trabalhos
      apresentados em conferências e resenhas de livros voltados para a área de
      Ciências Humanas.Objetivamos apresentar algumas análises que explicitam o
      funcionamento da indexação no que se refere à violência urbana. O nosso
      recorte será em torno das palavras pertinentes à violência no espaço
      urbano, buscando explicitar a pluralidade dos gestos de leitura e
      interpretação que os dispositivos de indexação produzem neste domínio.
      [English Abstract] To understand the discoursive function in scientific
      discourse management practices in bibliographic databases, we have focused
      on abstracts and keywords presented in SOCIOFILE - Sociological Abstracts.
      This American Database indexes and abstracts articles from around 2.000
      international journals, dissertations, book reviews and conferences in
      Sociology and related fields. As we intended to present some analysis to
      explain the indexing practices related to urban violence we have studied
      just those words related to urban violence, in order to reveal the
      plurality of reading gestures and interpretations produced by the indexing
      tools.

      medir? o que medir? . Revista Digital de Biblioteconomia e Ciência da
      Informação 1(1).
      Abstract: [Portuguese Abstract] A ciência, quanto atividade, é uma
      construção social, complexa, que requer ousadia e altos investimentos. Não
      é neutra, nem extemporânea; graça na concentração do seu labor, o que, em
      conseqüência, favorece o monopólio econômico dos seus resultados.
      Elitiza-se, materializa-se no efeito São Mateus: a quem tem, mais lhe será
      dado. Portanto, boas intenções e contradições requerem reflexões,
      questionamentos, discussões, crítica e massa crítica, área de concentração
      da "Ciência das Ciências" contemplada neste trabalho. [English Abstract]
      Science as activity is a social construction, it is complex, and requires
      courage and high investments. It is not neutral nor extemporaneous; settled
      in the concentration of its work, that, in consequence promote the economic
      monopoly of its results. It is aimed at the élite and is materialized as
      the effect of St. Matthew: for to everyone who has, more will be given.
      Therefore, good intentions and contradictions require reflections,
      questionings, discussions, critics and critical mass, the area of
      concentration of the "Science of Sciences" focused on this work.

      processo de análise de assunto para indexação . Revista Digital de
      Biblioteconomia e Ciência da Informação 1(1).
      Abstract: [Portuguese Abstract] A indexação compreende a análise de assunto
      como uma das etapas mais importantes do trabalho do indexador. A análise de
      assunto tem como objetivo identificar e selecionar os conceitos que
      representam a essência de um documento. A identificação de conceitos,
      realizada durante a leitura documentária, envolve esforço adicional de
      compreensão de texto e as dificuldades apresentadas possibilitaram a
      motivação para investigar, por meio de revisão de literatura, a
      identificação de conceitos a partir da leitura documentária, da
      tematicidade e das concepções de análise de assunto. Pelas análises obtidas
      considera-se que as concepções de análise orientadas para o conteúdo e para
      a demanda são decisivas para o bom desempenho do indexador durante a
      leitura para a identificação de conceitos na medida em que vincula-se à
      busca pela tematicidade do texto. [English Abstract] Indexing comprehends
      the subject analysis as one of the most important work phases of the
      indexer. The subject analysis aims to identify and select the concepts that
      represent the essence of a document. The identification of concepts, done
      during the documentary reading, comprehends additional effort of text
      comprehension. The difficulties met were the motivation to investigate by
      literature review, identification of concepts from the documentary reading,
      aboutness and conceptions of subject analysis. From the results obtained it
      is considered that the conceptions of analysis orientated to the content
      and to demand are decisive for good performance of the indexer during the
      reading to identify concepts as far as they are linked to the search
      through the text aboutness.

      Abstract: [Spanish abstract] Los problemas de evaluación de la
      investigación en humanidades y ciencias sociales son hoy en día un lugar
      común en la universidad española. Dentro del debate que dicha situación
      genera, ha adquirido cada vez más fuerza la necesidad de disponer de un
      sistema de evaluación de la calidad de las revistas que se pueda traducir
      en unos rankings de títulos, a partir de los cuales sea posible realizar
      una aproximación indirecta a la calidad de los trabajos de los autores. Por
      esta razón, las listas selectivas de revistas que funcionan como rankings
      de calidad de la producción editorial de un área se han convertido en una
      suerte de piedra filosofal, y su elaboración ha dado lugar a todo tipo de
      controversias, enfrentamientos y simplificaciones. Se trata de un problema
      internacional, sobre el que en buena medida se ha de actuar de forma
      nacional, ya que la investigación en estas áreas, por su propia naturaleza,
      está fuertemente condicionada por factores territoriales, culturales y
      lingüísticos. Sin embargo, el enfoque no se puede limitar al ámbito
      nacional, sino que se ha de realizar una contextualización internacional
      adaptada a la naturaleza de cada disciplina contemplada. [English abstract]

      Turnovsky, Petra (2004) Die Open Access – Bewegung und ihre Rezeption an
      wissenschaftlichen Bibliotheken in Österreich. Master thesis,
      Universitätslehrgang Bibliotheks- und Informationsmanagement 3,
      Donau-Universität Krems.
      Abstract: [English abstract] As a reaction to the serials crisis a movement
      has formed, which aims at open and charge free access to scientific
      literature in the internet. Open Access can be achieved by selfarchiving or
      by open access journals, which are financed by author payments. This master
      thesis provides a survey about the current state of the art of the
      movement, about the different conditions in the scientific disciplines and
      the networked initiatives. The situation is considered from the libraries'
      point of view, focusing on science libraries in Austria. The instruments
      for retrieval were identified as a week point. An additional obstacle for
      Open Access is the importance of the citation rate when scientific
      publications are evaluated. Due to the installation of e-print-servers a
      new assignment for libraries has developed. [German abstract] Als Reaktion
      auf die Zeitschriftenkrise hat sich eine Bewegung formiert, deren Ziel der
      offene und kostenfreie Zugang zu wissenschaftlicher Literatur im Internet
      ist. Open Access kann mittels Selbstarchivierung oder durch Open Access
      Zeitschriften, die sich durch Autorenbeiträge finanzieren, geschaffen
      werden. Diese Masterthese bietet einen Überblick über den aktuellen Stand
      der Bewegung, die unterschiedlichen Voraussetzungen in den
      wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen und die vernetzten Initiativen. Die
      Betrachtung erfolgt aus der Sicht der Bibliotheken. Die Instrumente zum
      Retrieval werden als Schwachpunkt identifiziert. Ein weiteres Hindernis für
      Open Access ist die Bedeutung der Zitationsrate bei der Bewertung
      wissenschaftlicher Arbeiten. Durch die Einrichtung von Publikationsservern
      entsteht ein neues Aufgabengebiet für Bibliotheken. Eine Untersuchung der
      Websites wissenschaftlicher Bibliotheken in Österreich zeigt, dass die Open
      Access Bewegung in Österreich bisher wenig Beachtung gefunden hat. Zum
      Vergleich wurden die Websites einiger Bibliotheken aus Deutschland, der
      Schweiz und dem englischsprachigen Raum herangezogen. Daraus werden
      Vorschläge zum bibliothekarischen Umgang mit Open Access abgeleitet.
