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!

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.

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.

One big problem with open access and why the best way to fix it isn't going to work - Curt Rice

One big problem with open access and why the best way to fix it isn't going to work - Curt Rice | Open access in science | Scoop.it

A recent Wall Street report declares the death of open access. What can we learn from their analysis?

 

There’s a conflict, a tension, an inherent contradiction in the open access movement, and while it could be resolved, that seems increasingly unlikely.

The inconsistency goes like this: the shift to open access publishing started idealistically, with enthusiasm and pressure from the grassroots. The business model for disseminating scientific results would be changed. Instead of putting research into journals that were expensive and exclusive, we would make articles available for free. No charge at all. Ready to be downloaded by anyone with an internet connection. (...) - by Curt Rice, 30/09/2014

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.

Bernard Rentier's curator insight, November 21, 6:12 AM

"This is big, and not only because the the Gates Foundation is big. The policy applies to both texts and data, requires CC-BY licenses, and is the first OA policy anywhere to give publishers fair warning and cut the permissible embargo from 12 months to zero over the next two years."

#OAWfr14 Théâtre d'Impro et Open Access à l'Espace Pierre-Gilles de Gennes (with images, tweets) · HackYourPhd

Dans le cadre de l’Open Access Week, HackYourPhD et Sharelex ont organisé une soirée spéciale à l’ESPGG vendredi 24 octobre. C'est la "génération Open" (thématique de l'année) qui a expliqué l'Open Access à d'autres chercheurs, étudiants et curieux. Points d'ombres et idées reçues sur le libre accès ont été ainsi discutés. Et, afin de démystifier totalement l'Open Access et en apporter une vision décalée, la troupe Theatral Suspect a rythmé la soirée de petites scènes d'improvisation. Cette soirée a reçu le soutien de Couperin via le programme FOSTER
MyScienceWork's insight:

Impossible malheureusement de retranscrire à travers des tweets l'excellent jeu des acteurs, mais la partie instructive sur  l'open access peut vous intéresser !
