Turner, G. W. (2014). Proposal for the establishment of a National Service Learning Academy and complimentary Action Research Program at the University of Cincinnati. University of Cincinnati. https://doi.org/10.7945/2hmt-1h17.
In this proposal for a National Service Learning Academy and complimentary Action Research Program, several curricula configurations are put forth. The first is a full-blown action research major that partially dictates the appropriate courses to take fulfilling the A&S core requirements and the majority of free electives. The second is a minor/certificate in action research. The third is an alternative set of core courses that would replace the credit hours traditionally reserved for the A&S core requirements, enabling any student to tack on the action research experience to their chosen major while still having credit hours available to pursue other minors, certificates, or electives. The fourth is an alternative core that is based more heavily on applied courses and knowledge.

Session Description: Publishing Data In Repositories - August 10th from 2-3pm
The currency of academia has long been the article. However, with supplemental materials in so many formats, the nature of the scholarly output has changed dramatically. Additionally funders and journals are requiring that the evidence for the articles is also available. Repositories are an excellent venue for these additional forms of scholarly, particular the data. In this session, attendees will learn about the nature of changing publication outputs, how repositories can help provide the needed infrastructure to share data and other research outputs, and how to make a bigger impact with your scholarship through publishing in a repository.
This list contains the titles and publication years of 599 articles from two Archaeology journals, Ancient Mesoamerica and Latin American Antiquity that contain the term, 'bone'. The articles named in this list were used as the dataset to generate LDA topic models for related research.
Six topic models were generated using Latent Dirichlet Allocation, an algorithm that considers the probability of words co-occurring in a document given a collection of documents. The collection of documents that these particular models are based on include 599 articles that include the term 'bone' from two archaeology journals, Ancient Mesoamerica and Latin American Antiquity.

Session Description - Open data and metadata - opportunities, risks, and possible actions
Research data is at the core of what universities do. Its value to researchers is, of course, paramount - and open science offers significant benefits to the scientific community. But this data, and the attached metadata, are increasingly valuable for third parties as well. We will discuss how research data and metadata increasingly overlaps with all the other data produced by academic institutions, how it is becoming increasingly valuable outside the academic community, and how it could become even more valuable in the future. The collection, analysis, synthesis and preservation of data and metadata, however, pose significant issues as well; for example, data can and is being used to evaluate individuals (with the biases implicit in developing algorithms to analyze them). More broadly, the collection and analysis of data raises privacy and academic freedom concerns, and so does the lack of transparency and accountability of third party users. Ultimately, the deployment of data analytics and Artificial Intelligence tools should fit with the broader values of the academic community, such as equity and sustainability - whether it does so is controversial.
In addition to the need to establish principles for the use of data analytics and Artificial Intelligence, there are also significant ethical questions that need to be addressed, and that pose significant challenges, and there are questions about how to ensure the long term preservation of data and metadata.
We will close the presentation with a look at possible steps that the academic community ought to take to address all these issues. We hope that a discussion will follow, in order to address questions and issues, as well as to gather points of view from participants

Publications have long been the currency for academia. The first publication can be the hardest. And today’s scholarly articles are more than pdfs and can include multi-media supplemental materials including raw or additional data, videos, interactive maps, and other components of your scholarship process. In this one hour web session, UC faculty who are journal editors will discuss how to - dentify the right journal for your work - avoid predatory journals - maximize your research impact through altmetrics and data publishing - increase your understanding of the publishing process through opportunities such as being a guest editor on a special issue or serving as a reviewer. This event is free and open to all seeking to publish their scholarship and maximize its impact.
