NOVA Labs Create Citizen Scientists!

NOVA Labs is an online place for aspiring citizen scientists and students to learn more about research processes and participate in scientific projects. Three ongoing projects are available on NOVA Labs: Sun Lab, Energy Lab, and Cloud Lab. Each lab includes materials for learning about the respective science in order to make observations and predictions. All the communities are mentored by researchers in the field of the projects.

4 ways open access enhances academic freedom

4 ways open access enhances academic freedom | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

Are politicians stealing our academic freedom? Is their fetish with open access publishing leading to a "pay to say" system for the rich?

Will the trendy goal of making publicly financed research freely available skew the world of scholarship even more in the direction of the natural sciences?

I don’t think so. But it took me a while to get there. (...) - by Curt Rice, Blog "Thourghts on university leadership", March 27, 2013

Filipe MS Bento's curator insight, April 5, 2013 6:36 AM

Rather relevant thoughts about Open access policies, namely the trending Gold route of Open Access publishing, the related Open Data movement, that is here to stay, and four examples how open access publishing may enhance academic freedom.

 

For a concise analysis of the different ways of Open Access publishing/archiving, please do have a look at SHERPA’s brief guide: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/documents/sherpaplusdocs/Nottingham-colour-guide.pdf

Open Research Data Handbook Sprint

Open Research Data Handbook Sprint | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
The Open Research Data Handbook aims to provide an introduction to the processes, tools and other areas that researchers need to consider to make their research data openly available.

The Open Research Data Handbook aims to provide an introduction to the processes, tools and other areas that researchers need to consider to make their research data openly available.

Join us for a book sprint to develop the current draft, and explore ways to remix it for different disciplines and contexts. In just over 24 hours we'll be creating an updated resource to help reseachers manage their data in the open, supporting better research and greater collaboration.

Publons set to revolutionize peer review in physics

Publons set to revolutionize peer review in physics | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

Publons is another great alternative or complement to the traditional peer review process. Like others, this service is an answer to the slow and rather opaque peer-review process, in which the fate of a manuscript is to the mercy of an anonymous pair of experts. The idea is that publishing research results should not be the limiting step. Papers should be published, then reviewed and commented-on by the readers. This sort of system would allow researchers to have a direct, rapid and interactive feedback on their work. (...) - by Thomas Crouzier, Connected researchers, April 11, 2013

Is PeerJ just another game-player, or is it a Game-changer?

Is PeerJ just another game-player, or is it a Game-changer? | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
In 2009 I had the pleasure of interviewing two luminaries in the Open Access publishing world, Peter Binfield and Jason Hoyt. Back then, Peter was ...

 

Today, PeerJ launches with the publication of 30 peer-reviewed scientific articles that are freely available to the public. I’m sure that both Peter and Jason will breathe a sigh of relief when the PeerJ servers survive the initial onslaught of requests. But, the real test will come in the following days and months, as we all see the public reaction to the newest experiment in Open Access publishing. As Peter told me in a recent phone interview, “This is the real launch of the journal. This is when we become real to the world.”

SPARC Innovator: Health Research Alliance (SPARC)

SPARC Innovator: Health Research Alliance (SPARC) | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

While the debate continues over U.S. federal policies to ensure the results of scientific research are openly accessible online, a key group of critical, private research funders has moved quietly and steadily to make such policies a reality.

The Health Research Alliance, a group of 52 not-for-profit, nongovernmental funders of health research and training - including the American Cancer Society, Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and Autism Speaks - has made provisions to encourage its members to implement strong policies to make articles that report on the research that they fund openly accessible online to the public. The HRA member funders collectively invest more than $1.5 billion in research funding per year.
