Abstract

Indonesia’s commitment to reducing land-based greenhouse gas emissions
significantly includes the expansion of conservation areas, but these developments
are not free of conflicts. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of agrarian
conflicts in the context of the implementation of REDD+ (Reducing Emissions
from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) and forest carbon offsetting in
Indonesia, a country where deforestation is a major issue.
The author analyzes new kinds of transnational agrarian conflicts which
have strong implications for global environmental justice in the REDD+ pilot
province of Jambi on the island of Sumatra. The chapters cover: the rescaling of
the governance of forests; privatization of conservation; and the transnational
dimensions of agrarian conflicts and peasants’ resistance in the context of
REDD+. The book builds on an innovative conceptual approach linking
political ecology, politics of scale and theories of power. It fills an important
knowledge and research gap by focusing on the socially differentiated impacts
of REDD+ and new forest carbon offsetting initiatives in Southeast Asia,
providing a multi-scalar perspective.
It is aimed at scholars in the areas of political ecology, human geography,
climate change mitigation, forest and natural resource management, as well as
environmental justice and agrarian studies.

Abstract

Libraries are places of learning and knowledge creation. Over the last two decades, digital technology—and the changes that came with it—have accelerated this transformation to a point where evolution starts to become a revolution.The wider Open Science movement, and Open Access in particular, is one of these changes and is already having a profound impact. Under the subscription model, the role of libraries was to buy or license content on behalf of their users and then act as gatekeepers to regulate access on behalf of rights holders. In a world where all research is open, the role of the library is shifting from licensing and disseminating to facilitating and supporting the publishing process itself.This requires a fundamental shift in terms of structures, tasks, and skills. It also changes the idea of a library’s collection. Under the subscription model, contemporary collections largely equal content bought from publishers. Under an open model, the collection is more likely to be the content created by the users of the library (researchers, staff, students, etc.), content that is now curated by the library.Instead of selecting external content, libraries have to understand the content created by their own users and help them to make it publicly available—be it through a local repository, payment of article processing charges, or through advice and guidance. Arguably, this is an overly simplified model that leaves aside special collections and other areas. Even so, it highlights the changes that research libraries are undergoing, changes that are likely to accelerate as a result of initiatives such as Plan S.This Special Issue investigates some of the changes in today’s library services that relate to open access.
