USA: The National Archives is letting millions of documents, including many related to immigrants’ rights, be destroyed or deleted

“In 2017, a normally routine document released by the archives, a records retention schedule, revealed that archivists had agreed that officials from Immigration and Customs Enforcement could delete or destroy documents detailing the sexual abuse and death of undocumented immigrants. Tens of thousands of people posted critical comments, and dozens of senators and representatives objected. The National Archives made some changes to the plan, but last month it announced that ICE could go ahead and start destroying records from Mr. Trump’s first year, including detainees’ complaints about civil rights violations and shoddy medical care.”

“Archivists” Made a Directory of 5,000 Coronavirus Studies to Bypass Paywalls

“The potentially illegal archive is a ‘moral imperative,’ said one organizer. […] [B]y disseminating PDFs from Sci-Hub, the coronavirus archive is in questionable legal territory”.

A broken system – why literature searching needs a FAIR revolution

https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/impactofsocialsciences/2020/02/03/a-broken-system-why-literature-searching-needs-a-fair-revolution/

“The volume of academic research articles is increasing exponentially. However, the ease with which we are able to find these articles depends on the capabilities of the search systems that we use. These systems (bibliographic databases like Scopus and academic search engines like Google Scholar) act as important gatekeepers between authors and readers. A recent study found that many of these systems are difficult to use, non-transparent and do not adhere to scientific standards. As a result, researchers find fewer relevant records, searching takes longer, or does not have the necessary scientific rigour. In this post, Neal Haddaway and Michael Gusenbauer argue that to address these issues academic searching needs to adopt the principles of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable), and be radically overhauled.”
