Open Data developments in Asia | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog - 1 views

  •  
    This blog about Open Data Developments in Asia analyses the recent state of Open Data adopted in Asia and highlights some of the 11 Asian countries participants that attended the Open Knowledge Conference in Geneva in 2012. Of the 11 countries that attended the conference, the author of the post focuses on the East Asian and Pacific countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar and discusses their state and role in Openness. The author does a good job at providing statistics of the different countries in terms of the Worldbank Knowledge Economy Index (KEI), which analyzes the economic rankings of countries. The author then compares economic rank to that of openness, stating that countries low on the economic rank contribute little to no open data within their own countries or externally to other countries. Next, the author talks about the overall internet penetration in Asia as being only 27.5 percent and in that statistic, there is still a wide gap between North and South East Asia in terms of internet use and information distribution and acquisition from citizens and others. Moreover, the author continues to compare how many social, economical, political and cultural influence information distribution, contribution and acquisition in Asia countries. Openness is growing in the more developed Asian countries, but openness is limited, or even nonexistent, in developing (authoritative) countries. After reading this article, I've had a greater understanding of the current state of Open Data in Asia an the influences that contribute to enabling Openness. What I expected from the blog post or something that would've made the post even better could be some examples or projects of Openness or Open Data in Asia.

    Many interesting charts and data of the global internet use, access, and contributions

    Cool!! It's so valuable to see behind the scenes of a lot of the open (or closed) tools we use. These images, maps, and infographics are really neat and use a lot of data that probably gets forgotten about in a lot of discussions. Thanks for posting!

    Atlas, publications, charts and tables of global information and internet geographies and impacts on information access, information production and information distribution, done over a four year period by Oxford Information Institute. Findings, data, and publication will be published in Open Access formats and platforms. The website is simple but contains lots of information relevant to the topics in Stanford. There are links to external related publications about information geography, access, distribution and production. Very good website. Some limitations include: bias from the two developers and producers as well as institution itself, unknown (not identified) contributors and sponsors.

    A very valuable collection demonstrating how economic, political, cultural and linguistic ties impact the flow of knowledge is and information. Of course, such charts do little to explain, why this happens and where a more even distribution of knowledge is desirable. Also, the data that lies behind the visualisations is not always open. Especially vauable are the links to the data collections that are accessible.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy - 0 views

  •  
    Welcome to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP). From its inception, the SEP was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up-to-date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of a distinguished Editorial Board before they are made public. Consequently, our dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research. You can cite fixed editions that are created on a quarterly basis and stored in our Archives (every entry contains a link to its complete archival history, identifying the fixed edition the reader should cite). The Table of Contents lists entries that are published or assigned. The Projected Table of Contents also lists entries which are currently unassigned but nevertheless projected.

La importancia de Wikipedia en el mundo y la educación [Infografía] - 2 views

  •  
    Varios son los servicios icónicos del internet, pero uno de los más gigantes, además de YouTube o Facebook, sin lugar a dudas es Wikipedia y su revolucionaria manera de brindar información al mundo. Gozando de un término adquirido similar a "Googleando", Wikipedia es sinónimo de diccionario, enciclopedia y es la primera vía a la que cualquiera recurre ante una duda informativa.

    Wikipedia sí ha Convertido En Una enciclopedia estafa MUCHOS Artículos de Gran Calidad Sobre Una Amplia Gama de Tópicos en Mas de 200 idiomas. Pero also Contiene Artículos de Mala Calidad y dudosa veracidad. Esto! Hace Que Los Visitantes al sitio en sí planteen la siguiente Pregunta: ¿de Como de Fiable es article ONU de Wikipedia?

    DOAJ is an online directory that indexes and provides access to quality open access, peer-reviewed journals. DOAJ es un directorio de revistas de acceso abierto, que tiene filtros por lenguaje, rama, país de publicación, año de publicación, y lo que me pareció más interesante, el tipo de licencia.

    Directory of Open Access Journals
  •  
    Es un recurso muy interesante, aunque personalmente suelo utilizar el ISI Web of Science, que considero más completo y relevante. Pero todos estos repositorios facilitan localizar adecuadamente la información sobre un autor, trabajo concreto o revista, y permite elegir, además, adecuadamente, la revista a la que mandar un trabajo de investigación que haya desarrollado uno mismo simplemente visitando tal directorio y viendo los topics que tiene cada una de las revistas.

    Unfortunately I see there is only one South African source.

    "Open access seems to be known as much for inadequate and exploitative publishing practices as for any increase in access". This is the bigges problem with publishing practice. Julia

    I like the directory as it will allow access to the type of information that the world needs at no cost at all. Well done!
