Science journal Nature to make archives available online - 2 views

  •  
    "The science journal Nature will make its archive of papers, dating back to 1869, free by way of read-only links available to subscribers and major news outlets. Under the new system, planned as a one-year trial, subscribers such as universities and researchers will be able to share a link to a read-only version of a Nature paper with anyone."

    This is a great idea - hope to see more follow this model. Ideally, it would be nice to see it open a bit further (to lay persons), but this is a positive move.

Feminist Journal Editing: Does This Job Include Benefits? - 1 views

  •  
    Founding editor and previous co-editor of the open access journal Feminist Media Studies provides an in-depth account into her experiences engaging with feminist, open access processes. Lisa McLuaghlin spends a great deal of time discussing the implications of hierarchies in (academic) publishing and the political implications of editorial boards. Also engaged throughout the article is a conversation about diversity within academic publishing. She emphasizes how Feminist Media Studies does not have a very diverse authorship despite the journal's intention and specific policies and editorial policies that are intended to encourage non-English speakers to publish in the English journal. This reflection on feminism and open access demonstrates what these fields have accomplished, while also indicating how far we still have to go. Overall, the article provided many insights from someone on-the-ground in regards to feminist, open access initiatives.
  •  
    Open access publishing in Feminist/Gender studies should reflect objectivism and diversity; therefore a diverse editorial board should be elected to recruit and select journal content that suits the target profile. It seems as if the editorial management of this journal is run more along business ethics than the principles of the journal.
  •  
    I would say that ethics should nearly always come ahead of journal principles.

Bioline International - reducing the south to north knowledge gap - 0 views

  •  
    from website: "Bioline International is a not-for-profit scholarly publishing cooperative committed to providing open access to quality research journals published in developing countries. BI's goal of reducing the South to North knowledge gap is crucial to a global understanding of health (tropical medicine, infectious diseases, epidemiology, emerging new diseases), biodiversity, the environment, conservation and international development. By providing a platform for the distribution of peer-reviewed journals (currently from Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Egypt, Ghana, India, Iran, Kenya, Malaysia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Turkey, Uganda and Venezuela), BI helps to reduce the global knowledge divide by making bioscience information generated in these countries available to the international research community world-wide." The site offers a range of journals, with full text access. Areas include zoology, health, agriculture, and nutrition. There aren't a lot of journals so the site is manageable. Good source if you are a scientist seeking data/information from areas other than the west.

Redefining Success and Failure: Open-Access Journals and Queer Theory - 0 views

  •  
    This article employs queer theory and challenges the notion of fitting emergent open access practices within current frameworks of academic success. While I was partially surprised by some of the assertions made early on in the article regarding open access journals being perceived as not as valuable as more traditional journal models, I think in part I may just hang out in academic circles that gravitate towards open access (hence... this course). But, I am very compelled by the conclusions made by Gurfinkel. That is, rather than trying to figure out how to systematize open access models to be respected within current academic standards, open access (as informed by queer theory, in this article) challenges us to investigate and question our standards in a more radical way. For example, in open access peer review models or post-publication review, the notion of a "peer" and thus who are considered credible and worthy sources of knowledge--and consequentially, what "knowledge" is-- are put into question. So, more than trying to figure out how to systematize and make more "legitimate" open access models, Gurfinkel wants us to ask what about the academy currently excludes open access models from being meaningful and legitimate practices in the first place.

    Thank you for sharing! The resource is last updated in 2013. It may be a bit outdated.

    Unfortunately I see it lacks the South African legal journals that I was looking for.

    Very useful, especially because of limited budget to buy books and journals.

Integrity under attack: The state of scholarly publishing - 0 views

  •  
    Scientific journals are surely important. They provide the most effective means for disseminating and archiving scientific results, and so are a key part of an enterprise on which our health, security, and prosperity ultimately depend. Publications are used by universities, funding agencies, and others as a primary measure of research productivity and impact. They play a decisive role in hiring, promotion, and salary decisions, and in the ranking of departments, institutions, even nations. With big rewards tied to publication, it is not surprising that some people engage in unethical behavior, abuse, and downright fraud.

Journal 'fails the test' - 0 views

  •  
    The Mediterranean Journal of Social Sciences, published in Italy, has been called a scam but it appears on the CVs of several professors at Unisa as the publisher of papers authored by them. This journal, owned by the Mediterranean Centre of Social and Educational Research, will publish an article only on payment by the author of a fee of $200 (about R2200).

Rise of the Rest: The Growing Impact of Non-Elite Journals - 0 views

  •  
    "In this paper, we examine the evolution of the impact of non-elite journals. We attempt to answer two questions. First, what fraction of the top-cited articles are published in non-elite journals and how has this changed over time. Second, what fraction of the total citations are to non-elite journals and how has this changed over time. "

    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!

¿Publicar o perecer? El aumento del autor fraccionario... - Publicado origina... - 0 views

  •  
    "los autores están usando su potencial de autoría más sabiamente al hacerse más colaborativos en su forma de trabajar, lo que está impulsando una inflación aparente en la productividad de cada autor así como autor por líneas. En lugar de ello, la fuerza subyacente del aumento del volumen de artículos publicados es simplemente la introducción de nuevos autores competidores en el mercado. Esto no es sorprendente, ya que la población de investigadores a nivel mundial sigue aumentando cada año, y llegan a estar cada vez más sujetos a los principios de "publica o perece", y así el ciclo continúa."

    John Abraham: How open-access journals are changing the field of peer-reviewed science
  •  
    that's an experience that can lead the way to scientific publishing after that of open archiving:http://scoap3.org/
  •  
    I think there are real benefits to make the research available to everybody. Because. most of those research works are financed with tax payers money directly or indirectly. So why should there be this private monopolies milking the society and the scientists and blocking the knowledge to be spread?!!!
