Open Access and Open Science principles are an essential part of knowledge creation and sharing. They directly support the researchers need for greater impact, optimum dissemination of research, while also enabling the engagement of citizen scientists and society at large on societal challenges.
This two year project aims to set in place sustainable mechanisms for EU researchers to FOSTER OPEN SCIENCE in their daily workflow, thus supporting researchers optimizing their research visibility and impact, the adoption of EU open access policies in line with the EU objectives on Responsible Research & Innovation.
ResearcherID provides a solution to the author ambiguity problem within the scholarly research community. Each member is assigned a unique identifier to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification
Open access (OA) to the research literature has the potential to accelerate recognition and dissemination of research findings, but its actual effects are controversial. This was a longitudinal bibliometric analysis of a cohort of OA and non-OA articles published between June 8, 2004, and December 20, 2004, in the same journal (PNAS: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences). Article characteristics were extracted, and citation data were compared between the two groups at three different points in time: at “quasi-baseline” (December 2004, 0–6 mo after publication), in April 2005 (4–10 mo after publication), and in October 2005 (10–16 mo after publication).
Le Web2 et la révolution des outils collaboratifs. Le nombre d'outils et de réseaux collaboratifs grandit chaque jour. Ce site fera le point sur tous les nouveaux outils collaboratifs qui sont en train de définir une nouvelle façon de travailler.
Les scientifiques français accusent un certain retard en matière de communication numérique, notamment sur Twitter. Un média social pourtant plébiscité par de nombreux scientifiques américains, pour «sortir du labo» et rencontrer des collaborateurs.
C'est toujours avec un grand plaisir que je lis les textes d'InternetActu.net. En voici un autre à ne pas manquer sous le titre «Qu'est-ce que le web 2.0 ?» signé par Hubert Guillaud. Qu'est-ce que le web 2.0 ?
Open educational resources (OERs) are digital materials available for reuse and repurposing in teaching, researching and learning. These materials are made available for use, reuse, adaptation, and sharing through open licenses that allow them to be used through means not permitted under copyright, so the flow of knowledge is boundless.
In other words, Open educational resources (OERs) are free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and other purposes.
Open educational resources (OER) can be anything from complete courses to recorded lectures, essay questions, discussion topics or reading lists. Teaching staff can 'pick and mix' these to suit their own purposes.
Mendeley is involved in several research projects. Particularly fruitful has been an on-going exchange of researchers and Mendeley staff between our London HQ and the Know-Center at Graz University of Technology in Austria. All projects aim to contribute to the improved use of the wealth of Mendeley data for the benefit of our users and the scientific community in general.
Unsurprisingly perhaps, this recent investigation of research collaboration started as a Hack Day project between Mendeley staff and a visiting researcher from the Know-Center/TU Graz in the context of the TEAM project (http://team-project.tugraz.at) which is coordinated by the Knowledge Management Institute of the TU Graz. Sebastian Pöhlmann (Insights and Analytics Manager) and Piotr Drozd (Community and Business Intelligence Analyst) teamed up with Peter Kraker (PhD student, Know-Center/TU Graz) to visualise cross-country collaboration on the Mendeley platform.
The African Development Bank (AfDB) has launched Open Data Platforms for the following 20 African countries: Algeria, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Malawi, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda,Republic of Congo, Senegal, South Africa, South Sudan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Zambia andZimbabwe. The Open Data Platform program is part of the AfDB’s recently launched “Africa Information Highway” initiative aimed at significantly improving data management and dissemination in Africa. Work is on course to complete platforms for the rest of African countries by July 2013.
The Open Data Platform is a user-friendly tool for extracting data, creating and sharing own customized reports, and visualizing data across themes, sectors and countries in tables, charts and maps. Through the Open Data Platform, users can access a wide range of development data on African countries from multiple international and national official sources. The platform also facilitates the collection, analysis and sharing of data among countries and with international development partners. The platform offers a unique opportunity for various users, such as policymakers, analysts, researchers, business leaders and investors around the world, to gain access to reliable and timely data on Africa. Users can visualize time series development indicators over a period of time, perform comprehensive analysis at country and regional levels, utilize presentation-ready graphics or create their own, blog, and share their views and work with others, thereby creating an informed community of users.
