La science menacée par une bulle spéculative de l'édition ?

Face aux dangers liés à la concentration de la presse scientifique, un collectif de chercheurs préconise la création, par l'Etat, d'un pôle public d'édition en accès libre. La qualité, l'indépendance et l'éthique de la connaissance en dépendent.
sdvig press's insight:

Great read in Le Monde Sciences. It is probably enough if governments support open access indirectly by facilitating their financing through public and university libraries. Non-profit open access projects such as sdvig press only need a moderate financial support of libraries (i.e. them buying our books and digital licenses at fair prices) to function well.

A l’occasion de la semaine du libre accès (open access week, du 21/25 octobre 2013), j’ai découvert un peu plus le projet MyScienceWork (MSW) qui se veut être un projet de réseau social centré sur les sciences.

Interesting post on some of the pitfalls of open access data harvesting

SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING - Johanna Drucker

SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING - Johanna Drucker | Digital Humanities & Publishing | Scoop.it

Books, monographs, scholarly articles published in peer-reviewed publications. These are the coin of the academic realm. Museum catalogues, essays commissioned for purposes that are not purely scholarly, and work done in a crossover venue that has trade or commercial or popular associated with its identity are considered lesser contributions, and weighted accordingly in moments of tenure or promotion. But as the industry of blogs and tweets has blossomed, the question of how new formats and genres will be accounted for within the metrics of scholarly communities, and how the processing tools that generate citation indices and frequencies can be extended to assist in the mechanics of ranking a scholar’s achievement without forcing a committee into any direct encounter with their work.

sdvig press's insight:

Excellent article which chimes in well with the conception of scholarly publishing we are developping at sdvig press
