Des paparazzis et des tortues

Des paparazzis et des tortues | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

A Saint-Leu, sur la côte ouest de l’île de La Réunion, un drôle de bâtiment se dresse face à la mer. Avec sa cheminée, vestige d’un ancien four à chaux, Kelonia est une étape obligée pour qui veut découvrir les tortues qui peuplent les côtes réunionnaises. A la fois espace de découverte pour le grand public et centre de recherche, cet observatoire des tortues marines n’accueille pas moins de 120 000 visiteurs par an. Outre visiter des expositions ou assister à des conférences, le public peut aussi contribuer à améliorer les connaissances sur les tortues à travers un programme de recherche participative.

Academia.edu Adds Analytics To Bring Transparency To How Research Spreads | TechCrunch

Academia.edu Adds Analytics To Bring Transparency To How Research Spreads | TechCrunch | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it
Academia.edu, a social network for researchers, just unveiled an analytics dashboard that’s meant to help scientists and other academics understand how their work is being read and distributed. It’s a difference from an older, more opaque world in which researchers vied to get into elite journals like the New England Journal of Medicine.

“To be a successful academic, it’s becoming as important to have an established web presence as it is to be published in a journal and it’s going to be increasingly critical,” said CEO Richard Price.

To those of us in the tech community, the concept of an analytics dashboard would appear pretty basic. But in the slow-moving world of academia, Price says it has profound consequences. - by Kim-Mai Cutler for TechCrunch, August 17th, 2012

GigaScience: open access to manuscripts plus datasets and codes! | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

On July 12, a new peer-reviewed open access journal, titled GigaScience, published its first set of articles. GigaScience represents a novel format for science journals: manuscripts in GigaScience are published with links to software tools used for analysis and to corresponding datasets in the journal’s integrated database GigaDB, allowing authors to store and share huge amounts of data.

Panton Principles for Open Data in Science / Les principes de Panton

Voici un texte de référence du mouvement Open Data en science, notamment en chimie et biologie, traduit en français. (English version)


Les Principes de Panton
Principes pour des données ouvertes en science

La science repose sur l’élaboration, la réutilisation et la critique ouverte du contenu publié des connaissances scientifiques. Pour que la science fonctionne convenablement et que la société puisse profiter pleinement des activités scientifiques, il est essentiel que les données de la science soient ouvertes.
Par données ouvertes, nous entendons celles qui sont librement accessibles sur l’internet public, permettant ainsi à tous les utilisateurs de les décharger, copier, analyser, retraiter, les faire traiter par un logiciel ou de les utiliser pour un quelconque autre objectif, sans barrières financières, juridiques ou techniques autres que celles inséparables de l’accès même à l’internet. Dans ce but, les données se rapportant aux résultats scientifiques publiés devraient être explicitement placées dans le domaine public.  (...)

Leading universities adopt Mendeley data to accelerate research analytics by 3 years

Leading universities adopt Mendeley data to accelerate research analytics by 3 years | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

This week, leading academic institutions in North America, Europe, and Asia signed up to Mendeley’s new data dashboard, the Mendeley Institutional Edition. The dashboard analyses their research activity and impact on the global research community in real time – down from the 3-5 year time lag of the “Impact Factor”, the current gold standard for such evaluations. This allows academic institutions to react faster to their faculty’s research needs and provide them with quicker, more personalised support during the research process – thus accelerating the pace of scientific discovery for all of us.
