Using Twitter for Curated Academic Content | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

The job of the humanities academic has always been to absorb large amounts of content, evaluate it, synthesize it, and portray the results in a way that will be relevant and engaging to an audience.

Ally Greer's curator insight, March 18, 2013 5:02 PM

Allan Johnson is a curator with a very specific method on discovering and sharing content with his audience. 


I'm also a fan of the "whole person" style of tweeting that Allan mentions in this post. This method consists of 30% personal "chatter" and 70% curated academic content. Sharing relevant content with your audience is great, but keeping it human is also extremely important too.


The workflow described here by Allan is great. He doesn't spent too much time on finding and distributing content, but still makes sure that everything he shares is relevant and value-adding.


My method is similar to his - with the addition of Scoop.it to host all of my shared content in a central HUB. (shameless plug).


What do you do to discover and share the most relevant thought-leadership content with your social media audience?

Daniel Jimenez Zulic's curator insight, April 30, 2013 1:01 AM

wow!!! me gustaria ser la mitad de organizado para poder seleccionar los materiales dignos de twittear...pero me imagino que incluye mucho de arte, practica, un metodo estudiado y las buenas aplicaciones que lo facilitan todo...pero usadas de manera muy inteligente y disciplinada. Un metodo brillante y productivo.

Lyonel Kaufmann's curator insight, October 15, 2013 12:05 PM

Hébergement des MOOC : diversification en vue

Hébergement des MOOC : diversification en vue | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

Les MOOC se banalisent. Suivre un MOOC va rapidement devenir aussi commun que suivre un module d’eLearning autoporté sur étagère (et plus efficace, espérons-le). Produire un MOOC représente beaucoup d’efforts et demande des compétences particulières, mais des organisations toujours plus nombreuses se lancent dans l’aventure. Il y a cette semaine plus de 80 MOOC francophones en cours de distribution, si l’on en croit l’annuaire de référence mooc-francophone.com. Le mois de mars va en voir ouvrir une bonne dizaine de plus. Encore ne parle t-on ici que des MOOC publics, ceux qui s’adressent à tous et ont donc besoin d’une forte exposition sur le web. Les SPOC et COOC réservés aux collaborateurs d’une organisation, ne figurent évidemment pas dans cette liste.

Dossier > Open data : l'open science ou la science ouverte

Dossier > Open data : l'open science ou la science ouverte | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

L’open science est une expression « valise » qui regroupe plusieurs initiatives, conduites à la fois par des chercheurs et des non-chercheurs, sur l’idée d’une recherche plus ouverte, plus transparente et plus collaborative. Cette logique vise également la multiplication des interactions entre le monde de la recherche et les sphères de la société civile, de l’entreprise ou même des arts.

L’open science présente différents aspects : libre accès aux publications scientifiques (open access), open data, logiciels open source, recherche participative et contributive. Par exemple, l’accessibilité des logiciels dont le coût de développement est parfois exorbitant permet aux non-chercheurs de s’impliquer également, par exemple Python ou R [langages de programmation utilisés par les scientifiques de données, NDLR]. Les récentes interactions entre chercheurs et autres parties prenantes (institutions, citoyens, etc.) font d’ailleurs l’objet d’une terminologie nouvelle en français (collaboration, interopérabilité, norme ouverte, etc.).

Global Library and Archives Community welcomes new United Nations report

Global Library and Archives Community welcomes new United Nations report | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

The international library and archive community welcomes the report that examines copyright from a critical but often neglected perspective: the human dimension. 

This report emphasises human knowledge as a global public good and recommends that States should guard against promoting the privatization of knowledge to an extent that deprives individuals of opportunities to take part in cultural life and enjoy the fruits of scientific progress.

In cooperation with key strategic partners, IFLA has crafted a statement of support for the report—now signed by 10+ organisations from the international library and archive community.

The effect of open access and downloads ('hits') on citation impact: a bibliography of studies

Despite significant growth in the number of research papers available through open access, principally through author self-archiving in institutional archives, it is estimated that only c. 20% of the number of papers published annually are open access. It is up to the authors of papers to change this. Why might open access be of benefit to authors? One universally important factor for all authors is impact, typically measured by the number of times a paper is cited (some older studies have estimated monetary returns to authors from article publication via the role citations play in determining salaries). Recent studies have begun to show that open access increases impact. More studies and more substantial investigations are needed to confirm the effect, although a simple example demonstrates the effect. This chronological bibliography is intended to describe progress in reporting these studies; it also lists the Web tools available to measure impact. It is a focused bibliography, on the relationship between impact and access. It does not attempt to cover citation impact, or other related topics such as open access, more generally, although some key papers in these areas are listed as jump-off points for wider study.

What Drives Academic Data Sharing?

What Drives Academic Data Sharing? | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
Despite widespread support from policy makers, funding agencies, and scientific journals, academic researchers rarely make their research data available to others. At the same time, data sharing in research is attributed a vast potential for scientific progress. It allows the reproducibility of study results and the reuse of old data for new research questions. Based on a systematic review of 98 scholarly papers and an empirical survey among 603 secondary data users, we develop a conceptual

Open access, open data, open science…what does “openness” mean in the first place? | Somatosphere

However, this case study also raises broader questions about the types of norms and values that are embedded within Open Science initiatives, and how these affect practicing researchers.  As Javier Lezaun and Catherine Montgomery have written in their excellent paper on Open Innovation in pharmaceutical research, notions of “sharing” and “openness” are predicated on the labor of researchers and institutions, who feel the imperative to put research materials into circulation.  Within Open Science, researchers are encouraged to make labor-intensive and value-laden outputs open.  And yet, it is precisely these outputs that often remain unacknowledged or under-valued, and which researchers resist making, or do not want to make, open.

Overall, it helps to remember that the materials and objects of research do not have value in and of themselves, and instead require work—through policies, norms, economies, and infrastructures—to have or be denied value.  Sabina and I, in a paper we are currently developing, argue that Open Science generates notions of value (which some argue is part of the neoliberal economy of higher education), which become embedded in the objects that researchers are encouraged to share and circulate.  While the more “traditional” outputs of scientific research—data, papers, intellectual property—are valued by the Open Science movement, they also contain less tangible aspects of value to researchers—skill, labor, knowhow, attribution, credit.  This presents a very real tension for researchers, like the PI whose story I recounted above, as they try to negotiate openness in practice.

Can the UN ensure open access to plant genomes? | Science Codex

Can the UN ensure open access to plant genomes? | Science Codex | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

A plant scientist from The Australian National University (ANU) has called for the United Nations to guarantee free and open access to plant DNA sequences to enable scientists to continue work to sustainably intensify world food production. 

Dr Norman Warthmann, a plant geneticist at the ANU Research School of Biology, has lodged a submission with the UN, which is currently considering issues to include in its 2015 Global Sustainable Development Report.

Food security depends on an acceleration in plant breeding, which could be threatened by private companies restricting access to genomic information, Dr Warthmann said.

Hub of all Things : un nouvel Internet

Hub of all Things : un nouvel Internet | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
The next generation of the Internet is here.

It is one that is empowering, privacy-preserving and human-centric.

It is one that views data as a service to us as individuals and as members of a collaborative society, as well as a service to firms to offer individuals innovative products and services.

The HAT is the first-ever personal data platform (HATPDP) created to hold individuals’ own data for their personal use. Individuals can acquire their own data from internet-connected objects or services, and this acquired data is then transformed by the HATPDP to enable individuals to contextualise their own data, making it meaningful and useful for decision-making. With that data, individuals can buy apps that allow them to analyse, view, trade or make important decisions based on their own data for a smarter and more effective life.

Vers une compréhension des enjeux et des perspectives dans l'usage des MOOC par des apprenants

Maîtrise universitaire en sciences de l'éducation - Formation des adultes, par Alain Titone
Soutenance Maîtrise : Univ. Genève, 2014 - 2014
Résumé

Accessibles à tous et en général gratuits, les Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) sont des cours en ligne à durée prédéterminée proposés par des organisations de tout genre. L’objectif de cette recherche est de comprendre comment l’expérience des MOOC est vécue par les participants, en particulier en termes de motivation et d’autonomie. Il est notamment question de formation professionnelle continue, de l’importance de la gratuité, d’autonomie méthodologique et de reconnaissance, au sens large du terme. Facilités et obstacles sont mis en lumière par le moyen d’entretiens, lesquels sont analysés à la faveur d’une sélection théorique affiliée à l’approche de l’autodétermination. Tout comme l’ensemble de la recherche, la synthèse des données proposée s’inscrit dans le cadre d’une approche compréhensive. Pour finir, il est esquissé des pistes de réflexion et d’intervention pédagogiques.

La science ouverte : un domaine en expansion selon le Conseil des académies canadiennes

La science ouverte : un domaine en expansion selon le Conseil des académies canadiennes | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

l est clair que l’approche que propose la science ouverte présente de nombreux avantages. Sur le plan plus fondamental, elle promeut la transparence et l’intégrité en recherche, comme la tentation de commettre une fraude est réduite lorsque son propre travail est accessible à la communauté scientifique élargie. Les expériences scientifiques sont également plus faciles à reproduire lorsque les articles, données et codes sources sont accessibles à tous. Par conséquent, la science ouverte facilite la collaboration, et encourage le développement de normes communes qui rendent plus facile l’intégration de données à d’autres projets. Elle donne accès à ces informations à un plus grand public (et non pas uniquement à ceux qui peuvent payer pour obtenir cet accès). Il y a des détracteurs de la science ouverte, notamment en ce qui a trait à son application au sein du secteur privé; toutefois, ces discussions outrepassent la portée de cet article.

Combining citizen science and public engagement: the Open AirLaboratories Programme

Combining citizen science and public engagement: the Open AirLaboratories Programme | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
Citizen Science (or “Public Participation in Scientific Research”), has attracted attention as a new way of engaging the public with science through recruiting them to participate in scientific research. It is often seen as a win-win solution to promoting public engagement to scientists as well as empowering the public and in the process enhancing science literacy. This paper presents a qualitative study of interviews with scientists and communicators who participated in the “OPAL” project, identifying three potential flashpoints where conflicts can (though not necessarily do) arise for those working on citizen science professionally. We find that although participation in the CS project was generally valued, it does not seem to overcome continuing (and widely reported) concerns about public engagement. We suggest that enthusiasm for win-win situations should be replaced with more realistic expectations about what scientists can expect to get out of CS-style public engagement.

A significant shift in how researchers approach their data is needed if transparent and reproducible research practices are to be broadly advanced. Carly Strasser has put together a useful guide to embracing open science, pitched largely at graduate students. But the tips shared will be of interest far beyond the completion of a PhD. If time is spent up front thinking about file organization, sample naming schemes, backup plans, and quality control measures, many hours of heartache can be averted.

Jean-Claude Bradley: la science par cahier de laboratoire ouvert, congrès de l'Acfas

Jean-Claude Bradley: la science par cahier de laboratoire ouvert, congrès de l'Acfas | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

On May 9, 2011 I presented remotely for the French-Canadian Association for the Advancement of Science (ACFAS). This was the first time I gave a talk about Open Notebook Science in French. In fact the last time I gave a scientific talk in French was probably in 1995, when I was doing a postdoc at the Collège de France in Paris. I remember being teased for my French Canadian accent back then so happily that wasn't an issue this time. Even though I was a bit rusty I think I managed to communicate the key points well enough. (At least I hope I did)

My presentation was a good fit for the theme of the conference: Une autre science est possible : science collaborative, science ouverte, science engagée, contre la marchandisation du savoir. (Another Science is possible: collaborative science, open science, against the commercialization of knowledge). I would like to thank the organizers (Mélissa Lieutenant-Gosselin and Florence Piron) for inviting me to participate.

I was able to record most of the talk (see below) but very near the end Skype decided to install an update and shut down so the recording ends somewhat abruptly. Given what people use Skype for, that default setting for updates really doesn't make much sense.
