The Challenge for Scholarly Societies - 0 views

  •  
    "The fate of scholarly societies is one of the most contentious and even emotional in the open access landscape. Many researchers have strong emotional ties to their disciplinary societies and these societies often play a crucial role in supporting meetings, providing travel stipends to young researchers, awarding prizes, and representing the community. At the same time they face a peculiar bind. The money that supports these efforts often comes from journal subscriptions. "

Open-access deal for particle physics - 0 views

  •  
    The entire field of particle physics is set to switch to open-access publishing, a milestone in the push to make research results freely available to readers.

    Particle physics is already a paragon of openness, with most papers posted on the preprint server arXiv. But peer-reviewed versions are still published in subscription journals, and publishers and research consortia at facilities such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have previously had to strike piecemeal deals to free up a few hundred articles.

Failure Is the Next Opportunity - 0 views

  •  
    "Science is very inefficient," says Ijad Madisch, founder of a Web site called ResearchGate. "You try an experiment, fail, try again, fail, try again, it works. And what works is what you publish. All the data about failure is wasted."

'Conventional' online universities consider strategic response to MOOCs - 1 views

  •  
    "Now that Stanford, MIT and other brands that "no one's going to question" have ventured into the online territories, one could propose that "the traditional brand pecking order" will "reassert itself online," says Garrett. Especially since the most desirable brands are offering their product for free."

Is Open Access a Moral or a Business Issue? - 1 views

  •  
    "Open access is framed as a moral issue, but it's actually a business one. Arguments that tax-payer funded research should be publicly accessible can seem obvious; but what if tax-payer funding is not available or is not adequate to cover the costs-as is usually the case in the arts and humanities?"

I can no longer work for a system that puts profit over access to research - 0 views

  •  
    "Today I resigned from the editorial board of a well respected journal in my field - Genomics. No longer can I work for a system that provides solid profits for the publisher while effectively denying colleagues in developing countries access to research findings.

    It has not been an easy decision. Some may feel that I'm grandstanding or making a futile gesture. And it may be a toxic career move. Scientists are expected to contribute to the community by reviewing papers and serving on editorial boards. But I cannot stand by any longer while access to scientific resources is restricted."
