Laboratoire de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire du Cancer (LBMCC) - lbmcc

Laboratoire de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire du Cancer (LBMCC) - lbmcc | Open access in science | Scoop.it
Basic and applied research uncovering the molecular mechanisms of cancer and leukemia:
inflammation, epigenetics and discovery of natural anti-cancer compounds.
MyScienceWork's insight:

This is a new step in MyScienceWork's history: we are now creating open access repositories for research, staring with the Luxembourgish cancerology LBMCC lab this week!

 

We are very proud and excited by this new way to communicate research results: the repository is working according to a 3P rule: Publications, Profiles, Popularization, which makes access to science easire for all.

 

Your feedback is welcome, tell us your impressions!

Deux nouveaux scandales de fraude scientifique ont éclaté il y a peu. Si le premier confine à la tromperie dans un but carriériste, le second a été échafaudé pour souligner la manière dont nombre de médias considèrent la science, sans distance.

You don't know quality when you see it: Bias and bibliometrics - Curt Rice

You don't know quality when you see it: Bias and bibliometrics - Curt Rice | Open access in science | Scoop.it
One important discovery in psychology is that decisions and evaluations are affected by their context and by experiences accumulated over a lifetime. We can lump these two things together — context and experience — and call them bias. Our decisions are usually biased. That is, they deviate from what they would be if we were purely …

Nature's Shareware Moment

Nature's Shareware Moment | Open access in science | Scoop.it

So, Nature said a thing about public access tonight. Everything is free to read* they say.

But there’s an asterisk, pesky and persistent, next to read. And it’s a big one.

The asterisk is that you can’t do anything but read the document, and you have todownload use their proprietary reader software in order to read the document, and you have to hope that someone who has a subscription or is a journalist is kind enough to share a link to the document that you want to read, and if you try to do anything other than look at the document passively on a screen you’re basically gonna get sued for copyright infringement.

About OpenCon 2014 (Washington main event)
OpenCon 2014 is the student and early career researcher conference on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data being held on November 15-17, 2014 in Washington, DC. It is organized by the Right to Research Coalition, SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), and an Organizing Committee of students and early career researchers from around the world.
The meeting will convene students and early career researchers from around the world and serve as a powerful catalyst for projects led by the next generation of scholars and researchers to advance OpenCon's three focus areas—Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data.
See the OpenCon2014 website for more details.
MyScienceWork's insight:

If you missed the Washington DC OpenCon event, you can make up for it with this afternoon at Imperial College!

Why Isn't Academic Research Free to Everyone? | Open access in science | Scoop.it

Scholarly articles, filled with indubitable knowledge and analysis, only exist for the general public behind pricey paywalls. So one lecturer is advocating for them to be free of charge.

Will academic publishing become more pluralistic thanks to open access? | Open Science

Will academic publishing become more pluralistic thanks to open access? | Open Science | Open access in science | Scoop.it

Achieving a big number of subscribers for new, local journals is very difficult, thus the only reasonable way for this kind of journals is to go open access. Thanks to openness, local journals that were invisible on a global publishing market can fight for an international audience and recognition.
