PhD by Publication

I have a lot to reflect on and say about this PhD, principally because it was a PhD by publication – a bit of a different animal.

PhD by Publication and Collaboration

Jenny Connected

My own PhD (by publication) required the submission of a selection of published papers together with a supporting statement which expounded the overall contribution to knowledge in my field. Some PhDs by Publication do this, but I strongly resisted it.

Why do a PhD by Publication?

Jenny Connected

Although I knew that it was possible to do a PhD by publication, I thought I probably wasn’t eligible. Many Universities will only take members of staff to do a PhD by Publication. My PhD by Publication was different. Why do a PhD at all?

PhD by Publication – Selection of Papers

Jenny Connected

Despite this, it wasn’t immediately apparent to me which papers I should select for this PhD by Publication or what the focus of my supporting statement should be. Perhaps not surprisingly, in order to select papers, I first had to refresh my memory about these publications.

New Publication: Public Libraries as Social Innovation Catalysts

Making CommunitySense

van den Assem (2013), Public Libraries as Social Innovation Catalysts. Public libraries urgently need to reinvent their role in society. We investigate how to design such inter-sectoral public library innovations that are embedded in existing organizational practice and are both sustainable and scalable. We show how we did an initial validation of the method using the results of two exploratory workshops with professionals in the Dutch public library world.

PhD by Publication – Making a Contribution

Jenny Connected

Earlier this year I was awarded a PhD by Publication from the University of Lancaster , UK. Of course, I know of the criticisms of a PhD by Publication and I suspect that several of my colleagues and friends wonder about whether this is a ‘proper’ PhD.

Public Relations becomes Community Relations – Social Media

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

I’ve been working with a PR agency for a while (best part of a year) and one key concept is that Public Relations is about managing multiple Publics. Build and manage the community and you automatically take on a “public relations manager&# role. But tomorrow, the company that manages say, the largest community of women in the right demographic online, becomes a public relations company. As a community manager you ARE the public relations manager.

Public Sector Collaboration with Knowledge Hub

The new platform replaces a smattering of non-integrated tools: Knowledge Hub, the UK’s largest platform for public service collaboration, today announced that it is partnering with Socitm, the society for IT/digital leaders and professionals working in local public services, to enable Socitm members to collaborate online. At the same time, Socitm will retain the ability to engage with the wider community providing services to the public across Knowledge Hub.

Brazil eGov: Public Works and Internet Voting

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

In order to maximize availability of the voting system, the city established 178 voting points around the city, including a mobile unit consisting of a bus with Internet access and carried out an extensive public relations campaign. Sadly, the case study does not discuss the nature of the public works projects, the nature of the winners, or evaluate whether the government actually followed through and built them. I’m always interested in metaGovernment.

Will public shaming on the Internet make leaders behave better?

Leading Virtually

The other side believed that inappropriate behavior of the kind that Donald Sterling had engaged in is largely wired into people and public shaming on the Internet won’t make much of a difference. It is not uncommon for judges to punish misdemeanors or crimes by ordering public shaming.

Helping to improve the public conversation

Chris Corrigan

It gives me a clue to what is possible when we change the way we frame conversation in the public sphere. We need a public conversation that allows us to be wrong or unsure and allows us to share information with each other to make skillful decisions.

Whatever happened to ‘publicness’?

I try to do so not least because – as I have argued often before - our libraries are one of the few things left that consolidate the public realm. Deliberate inaction in defence of the public library network, by the minister with responsibility for them , is in my view manifestly strategic.
