Open Data Maker Nights are informal events focused on "making" with open data – whether that's creating apps or insights. They aren't a general meetup -- if you come, expect to get pulled into actually building something, though we won't force you!

Open access movement is here for scientific research and knowledge | opensource.com | Fukushima | Scoop.it

A recent study funded by the European Commission and undertaken by analysts at Science-Metrix, a Montreal-based company that assesses science and technology organizations, has concluded that half of all published academic papers become freely available in no more than two years.

 

According to the study, the year 2011 is a milestone for open access. By this analysis, 50% of all scientific articles published in 2011 are currently available in some open access form or another, and the trend is toward more and more articles becoming open access.

How the Government Shutdown Affects Open Access at Georgia Tech | GTLibrary News

How the Government Shutdown Affects Open Access at Georgia Tech | GTLibrary News | Fukushima | Scoop.it

With the ongoing government shutdown, federally operated websites and databases are being turned off, such as NASA’s website, or not updated with current information like the National Institutes of Health PubMed Central’s website. Access to information paid for by taxpayer dollars is inaccessible to the taxpayer, but government shutdowns are not the only way that information becomes unavailable. Back in the spring of 2013, NASA’s technical reports server was down for several weeks while NASA assessed its internal security systems. Thousands and thousands of publicly accessible works covering over 50 years of NASA research were offline. In January of 2012, the government lost funding for the federal program National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII), and over ten years of data and research was no longer hosted by government servers, and much of it did not find a home elsewhere.
