Ally Skills Workshop for women in open source | Opensource.com

Ally Skills Workshop for women in open source | Opensource.com | Linux and Open Source | Scoop.it
Women are an underrepresented group in the open source world. According to data from the FLOSS 2013 survey, a little more than 10% of open source developers are women. But not everyone who wants to bring about change has the clout of a large organization or corporation. So, what can smaller groups or individuals who want to make open source more welcoming to women do? The Ada Initiative has a solution—the Ally Skills Workshop.

Open access movement for academic journals and researchers | Opensource.com

Open access movement for academic journals and researchers | Opensource.com | Linux and Open Source | Scoop.it
The ever rising cost of academic journals is a major burden for researchers. Academic libraries cannot always keep up with increases in subscription fees causing libraries to drop journals from their collection. This makes it harder for students and professors to quickly and easily access the information they need. Inter-library loan requests are an option but they do take time. Even if it only takes a few days to fill an inter-library loan request, that is still time wasted for a researcher that has a deadline. While there is no single, quick fix to the problem with the academic journal prices, there is a movement applying the open source way to academic research in an attempt to solve the problem—the open access movement.
