These days may well be the next golden age for universities, and startups are leading the way.

Making Open Access and the UK's scholarly society work

Making Open Access and the UK's scholarly society work | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

Recently, at a one-day colloquium on Open Access I learned why academic publishing is so expensive, and I was disappointed to discover that resistance to open access from scholarly societies is not linked to the costs of publishing, but to the cost of non-publishing activities. The UK is in the midst of a heated debate about Open Access, following the Finch Report and an incoming policy that will require all research funded by the taxpayer to be published open access.

HackYourPhD in USA

An open and dynamic research community exists, HackYourPhd invites you to discover it and show you that we all have a role to play!

 

What do we know about the research world? Often not much or nothing very attractive. The community of researchers seems too often walled up in its ivory tower.

Yet, a committed group of people and initiatives aiming to open up this research in order to make it more dynamic, collaborative, and transparent does exist.

 

This movement began largely in the United States, which is why Célya, cofounder of HackYourPhD, invites you to go on a journey. Through a web-documentary, discover the current situation of scientific research, which is far from being heartening. But also meet those in the USA who imagine and work to build a more open science! This investigative project relates to research, design, entrepreneurship, and hacking, and those involved devote a considerable amount of work and expertise to it. The freedom of expression that this campaign provides is an inexhaustible source of innovative ideas and an extremely fertile setting for those who need inspiration.

Première plateforme allemande de financement participatif pour la science

[BE Allemagne 582] Le forum "Wissenschaft im Dialog" (la science en dialogue, WiD) [1] lance la première plateforme allemande de crowdfunding, ou financement participatif, pour les projets de recherche et de communication. Il suffit souvent de peu d'argent pour pouvoir démarrer un projet de recherche : juste assez pour un voyage d'études, un ordinateur, un appareil de mesure, ou encore un collaborateur pour quelques mois. Trop peu pour une requête officielle coûteuse. Pour donner une chance à de tels projets, Wissenschaft im Dialog lance donc sa plateforme sciencestarter.de.
