The physical changes are happening, our central nervous system is assimilating the changes... but what's happening to our emotional maturation

- still needing the same fuel (cigarette and shots) - or at least we don't imagine a life past that.

Open Access Publishing: Potential Unintended Consequences of the Finch Proposals

Open Access Publishing: Potential Unintended Consequences of the Finch Proposals | Bioethics + Photography Enthusiast | Scoop.it
The second in our series on open access in IR and social science (first post here, third here, fourth here, fifth here, sixth here), this time from Colin Wight. Colin is a Professor in the Departme...

 

The recommendations of Dame Janet Finch in relation to ‘open access’ (OA), seem to represent the first steps in what looks to be an inexorable trend towards a major reform of academic publishing. The OA movement has been gathering momentum and the academic boycott of major Dutch publisher Elsevier, was simply the latest in a series of initiatives aimed at forcing governments, academics and publishers to rethink, not only how research outputs are handled, but also how they are funded.

 

That the UK Education Secretary, David Willetts, moved so quickly to implementation after the publication of the Finch report, suggests that advocates of OA were knocking at an open door. Most academics are in favour of OA. It makes sense. After all, why should government funded research not be publically available and why should commercial publishers be allowed to fill the coffers of their shareholders on the back of taxpayer funded research?

Every single day since November 2010, without fail, Bristol-based artist Guy Denning (previously) posts a daily sketch to his Drawing a Day blog (occasionally mirrored on his Facebook page). It’s well worth following.

How Athletic Culture Still Suppresses Concussion Research

How Athletic Culture Still Suppresses Concussion Research | Bioethics + Photography Enthusiast | Scoop.it

A researcher's struggle to get players and leagues to cooperate in a study of traumatic brain injury...

 

The last time Dr. Paul Echlin attempted to research concussions occurring in young ice hockey players, one of the two participating teams dropped out halfway through the study.

 

Now, two years later, Echlin managed to get all of the data needed for a massive, 4-part analysis of traumatic brain injury among college varsity players -- but not without meeting enough opposition that he was inspired to write an accompanying editorial decrying the competitive culture that keeps concussions dangerously under studied and underreported. All were published in a special issue of Neurosurgical Focus.
