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!

Self-publishing: why not? - Times Higher Education

Self-publishing: why not? - Times Higher Education | Open access in science | Scoop.it

Publish on Amazon and be damned” is something that the Duke of Wellington might well have said, had he been born two centuries later. To some, this new, relatively unfiltered and uncontrolled form of dissemination may seem little more prestigious than running your own blog. As someone who has published five books with academic presses since 2007, I am now about to publish my sixth, A Century of Supernatural Stories, on Kindle, and via CreateSpace, as a print-on-demand paperback.
Why? The first and simplest answer is: because I want a lot of people to read it. The book is a collection of supernatural tales from 19th-century newspapers, with explanation and commentary derived from my research on magic, witchcraft, vampires, ghosts and poltergeists. Published in their original prose, the tales seem to me to have a nicely textured voice of the period, but they are often also pretty compelling in their own right. I can vouch for this as I’ve got into the habit of paraphrasing them for all sorts of patient listeners over the past few months, most of whom were neither students nor academics.

Is pre-publication peer review obsolete ?

Is pre-publication peer review obsolete ? | Open access in science | Scoop.it

“Peer review is supposed to be the quality assurance system for science, weeding out the scientifically unreliable and reassuring readers of journals that they can trust what they are reading. In reality, however, it is ineffective, largely a lottery, anti-innovatory, slow, expensive, wasteful of scientific time, inefficient, easily abused, prone to bias, unable to detect fraud" (former British Medical Journal editor Richard Smith) and irrelevant.”

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.

Alessandro Vespignani: open data is key to preserve nature of science | Open access in science | Scoop.it

Big data changes the way we do science and replicate it

Physicist Alessandro Vespignani is one of the main experts in networks and statistical and numerical simulations. An Italian scientist, he is currently working at the College of Computer and Information Sciences at Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. In this EuroScientist podcast interview, he shares his views on the need to re-think the concepts of replicability and reproducibility. (...) - Euroscientist, by Luca Tancredi Barone, 29 April 2015

While the #bigdata revolution is ongoing, there are new challenges in data reproducibility  #openscience #openresearch #opendata

Nicolas Pettiaux's curator insight, August 12, 5:12 AM

One of the key aspect of science is reproducibility. For me that is "if some affirmation said to be science cannot be claimed, based on an independent study, by another team/person, there is NO scientific process taking place. Hence reproducibility is impossible". In order to allows for reproducibility, there are some necessary conditions : the full process must be described, the data must be accessible too. Either by independent production if possible, or by giving full access to the data first analyzed. And the software used must be fully accessible too, because it contains the details of the process, if any software is used. And we all know that the devil hides in the details.


Alessandro Vespignani, rightfully says "the (scientific) validation happens when you have different teams that work at the same time on the same set of data to recover results.” Hence, the data must often, at least if their production or storage is difficult or expensive, be open if not libre (in the sense of libre access)

 In short, in many (most ?) cases, in 2015, in order to do science, the description of the results (= the paper), the data, the software and the comments by the community must all be open and sharable without barrier. Cost is one such barrier.

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.
