True cost of science publishing - 2 views

    This is an interesting article about the cost of formal publishing verses open access publishing. Although there seems to be a lot of secrecy around the issue, the research shows that the total cost for open access publishing is a lot less than formal publishing. That appears to bring the perception that the open access works are not as good as those published in formal journals. Despite this factor there is growing encouragement to authors to publish their work in open access sources, but traditional models remain very popular. A large percentage of these journals actually allow people to publish online, although some do ask for a time delay. Despite that, many authors do not proceed to publish online after they have gone through the formal process although some authors are obliged to do so by their institution. It could be a good test to see why these authors do not take the step to publish online. Reasons could range from apathy, to not enough knowledge of the process, to a need not to share the information with everyone. Economically, there is also a concern that open access sources will become more expensive as more authors begin publishing in this way.

Balance between open access and protection of intellectual property - 1 views

    With the changes in technology, it is harder and harder to protect author's intellectual property. However, we can try to achieve a balance between open access and intellectual property.

After Reversal in Key Copyright Case, What's Next for Academic Fair Use? - 3 views

    On October 17, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed and remanded a key fair-use ruling in a long-running case over digital course readings on college campuses. But while on the surface the decision is a legal victory for the plaintiff publishers, two major library associations say the ruling is in fact a win for libraries, and for a popular practice known as "e-reserves."
    Very relevant for our academic librarians.

Hello everybody, Editorial Intech is a good example of Creative Commons Publication Site: They are focused on the scientific world with a great variety of topics including engineering, mathematics, linguistics, software, radio mobile communications, etc. In this sense, let me one of my recent publications there: "A unifying statistical model for atmospheric optical communications", focused on the generation of a new statistical model that unifies in a single closed form expression many of other probability density functions employed in the literature to model the turbulent atmosphere as an optical channel of communications.

    Very useful resource. Recommended it some time ago to colleagues in Ethiopia when they started a new university programme in biomedical engineering and were looking for publications that they can use in their curriculum
    Thank you, Ibraghimova.
    I have now only realized that this site is an Open Knowledge site, and I had used it over a year ago to cite some research for a paper on renewable energies. You might be interested in this site for sharing scientific data:

DPLA: Digital Public Library of America - 0 views

    While attending another work-related webinar, I heard about this web site and thought about this class. On the surface, this site looks like a portal to many, many other image and video repositories about the history and geography of the United States. Many are contributed by local public libraries, museums, archives, and historical societies. What caught my attention and connect to this course is that all the metadata of the repositories are open access, so that developers can take advantages of the metadata and create additional apps. In this sense, this site becomes a platform. The contents from the various repositories have different degrees of rights and restrictions for reuse, some are under CC, some are protected by copyright, but the metadata is all open!

Off the grid & in the zone! - Are schools becoming irrelevant with OER? - 2 views

    "Is Luciana Fasani too cool for school or better prepared than most teens for a rapidly changing workplace? A qualified make-up artist and hair consultant and now studying the performing arts, the 14-year-old Cape Town teen tells Nelia Vivier about stepping up to today's job market and life in future.. "The educational system today only values one type of intelligence - if you do not fit into that mold, you are made to feel unhappy and stupid" "Schools and schooling ar becoming increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet. No-one believes anymore that scientists are trained in science classes, or politicians in civic classes, or poets in English classes - John Gatto"."Our school crisis is a reflection of the greater social crisis (in South Africa) - children and old people are penned up and locked away to a dgree without precendent... a community that has no future, no past, only a continuous present".

Here are the criteria we've examined: Subjects: Does a site focus on specific genres of images, or is it a mass collection of various image types?

    Hi there! Thank you for sharing this resource. I think that it is extremely helpful to have a list of websites and pictures that I can use with respect to copyright listed on one page. There have been many times when I need to quickly find an image to use for a project, and have gotten caught up in trying to find a picture with an appropriate copyright license. I also did not know that images created by government employees were copyright exempt, and I really enjoyed searching through some of those sites!
    It's not only the Creative Commons part that is important but the Public Domain (CC0) pictures, that can be used.
    ¿Can any picture be used without failing into copyright stops?
    Thanks for sharing! The list is very useful. But I'm not sure if it is actually "OK" for university students to use online sources (videos from YouTube, or images downloaded from Google) for academic purpose/ personal use when talking about "fair dealing".
    Again, thak for sharing, this tools can be very interesting for who want to create an educational blog Julia Echeverria
    Thanks for sharing, nice blog
    Very helpful resource. The categories help to narrow one's search.
    Nice! Thanks for sharing. Both useful IRL, and pertinent to the course.

    Why do people share and give away their stuff to strangers? Maybe the answer is in the function of the brain. I find this lecture on the reward system very interesting.

El conocimiento libre y los recursos educativos abiertos - 0 views

    El informe se dirige a gerentes de instituciones de educación superior así como estrategas y decidores a nivel internacional, nacional e intermedio. Aunque sólo cubren la educación superior, la mayoría de los temas planteados también son de relevancia para el sector escolar y la educación para adultos. La investigación sobre la utilización y producción de REA en el sector escolar y las implicaciones para este mismo sector son de sumo interés.
