Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Discussion of e-books in libraries and universities covers a range of issues such as selection, purchasing, licensing, management and user support. One topic that rarely arises is that of e-book creation. Most librarians see themselves as consumers rather than creators of e-books. Yet libraries have a collective treasure trove of books and other materials that may be suitable for digitization. This article summarises numerous issues that arise when creating e-books and publishing them in open-access XHTML format on the web, and describes policies that can help resolve these issues.
