This was definitely an interesting reading. I believe @Spencer Levesque had a very good point. They all have similar features, but are different in little ways. And who would of thought someone came on New Years too?

I find it very interesting on how other countries precieve Santa Claus. The history on him, what he looks like, how he gets around, and what they call him. Each country perceives him differently, depending on their culture and history. His clothes, age, language, and personality.

Science as an open enterprise; towards all scientific literature online, all data online, and for them to interoperate

Science as an open enterprise; towards all scientific literature online, all data online, and for them to interoperate | Digital Scholarship and Scholarly Communications | Scoop.it

The Science as an open enterprise report highlights the need to grapple with the huge deluge of data created by modern technologies in order to preserve the principle of openness and to exploit data in ways that have the potential to create a second open science revolution.

Exploring massive amounts of data using modern digital technologies has enormous potential for science and its application in public policy and business. The report maps out the changes that are required by scientists, their institutions and those that fund and support science if this potential is to be realised.

Areas for action

Six key areas for action are highlighted in the report:

 

Scientists need to be more open among themselves and with the public and media

 

Greater recognition needs to be given to the value of data gathering, analysis and communication

 

Common standards for sharing information are required to make it widely usable

 

Publishing data in a reusable form to support findings must be mandatory

 

More experts in managing and supporting the use of digital data are required

 

New software tools need to be developed to analyse the growing amount of data being gathered

Not a Scarlet Letter: Talking with Students about Being an Adjunct | Profession | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Not a Scarlet Letter: Talking with Students about Being an Adjunct | Profession | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Digital Scholarship and Scholarly Communications | Scoop.it

If you’re an adjunct, I have a small but important task for you: Ask your students what “adjunct professor” means to them. You might hear something like, It means you don’t have a Ph.D., or You don’t have tenure yet. (Yet...if only.) Don’t be bitter or cynical, and don’t barrage them with statistics, stories of unfair working conditions, and vitriol against “the administration.” Try to be as calm and diplomatic as you can, and simply listen. Some might understand and empathize, or some may simply brush it off. If you’re a multi-campus adjunct (or “road scholar,” as we’re sometimes called), students may understand that their class and campus aren’t the only things demanding your attention. Carve out some time in class, and ask your students what “adjunct” can or does mean.

Open-access journals confuse contributors as they experiment with peer review models | Inside Higher Ed

Open-access journals confuse contributors as they experiment with peer review models | Inside Higher Ed | Digital Scholarship and Scholarly Communications | Scoop.it

Just because scholars who seek to publish in open-access journals are open to new forms of peer review, that doesn't mean they all see eye-to-eye -- or know what to expect. As one sting operation shows, many such journals are unable to reject obviously flawed submissions, even as they promise thorough review processes. Meanwhile, other journals are even criticized for being too much like the traditional publishing they aim to reform.
