How Open-Access Scholarship Improves the Internet

How Open-Access Scholarship Improves the Internet | Knowledge Brokering | Scoop.it

After a college professor writes an academic journal article, it usually has a long but vivid transit to publication. The professor sends it to a journal, where it endures rounds of reviews and edits by other academics. Eventually, it's scheduled for publication, and it waits, not yet born. Then its big day comes--it's published!--and formatted, printed, bound and mailed to subscribing institutions, and uploaded to a journal's servers. Perhaps the professor's home college or university receives the print copy, perhaps they've purchased server access, but, regardless, they pay twice: Once for the research, and once for the product of that research.

Not only open access to articles matters, but developing valuable research into a variety of forms for consumption will improve scholarship and the internet!

The future of governments - democracies that are co-designed, co-managed and co-owned

OGPNews's curator insight, August 13, 2013 1:50 PM

An interesting infographic from Furture Digital with a vision for a new, open democracy. It suggests current forms of government are characterised by arrogance and control: "we're in charge, the public are problematic and it's best to leave it to the experts".

It points the way forward to governments where "democracy is co-designed, co-managed and co-owned". In this model, "engagement happens as a partnership, community knowledge is valued alongside 'expert' knowledge and citizens are able to develop engagement processes that work for the community not just the civil servant. Above all, decisions are open and made by consensus."

 

Any views?

Health Map is a real-time epidemic tracking application that is available as an iPhone and Android app as well as a website.
Those working in or training to work in Public health can use the information to monitor health issues around the world.
The information is collected from different sources like online discussions, publicly available datasets, health alerts, news aggregators etc.
Health workers and researchers can use the global or the local maps to study how outbreaks are occurring around the world.

Knowledge management and community – a free virtual issue of JASIST | Exchanges

Knowledge management and community – a free virtual issue of JASIST | Exchanges | Knowledge Brokering | Scoop.it

"JASIST, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, has published a wealth of scholarly papers on knowledge development, knowledge sharing, communities of practice over the years and other KM-relevant topics.  We reproduce here a recent Virtual Issue covering in particular the theme of knowledge management within a community.

There is a substantial body of knowledge management (KM) literature that deals with how individuals and groups develop knowledge and share it within different organizational structures. Along with a sampling of such studies, we also present others that touch upon how these communities exchange knowledge in interdisciplinary collaborations, what behaviors and intentions with respect to knowledge sharing (KS) and knowledge consumption they exhibit, what individual motivations they might have when sharing knowledge online, how communities of practice use technology, and how knowledge sources can influence KS. We similarly include papers on the application of these KM ideas and frameworks to other fields of study.  (See full editorial for this Virtual Issue here)."
