We’re sort of led to believe that the ‘best’ search results are the ones on the first page. Companies pay tons of money to be featured on the top of the search results for this reason! Don’t be fooled – it is worth the time you spend sifting through the search results.

Un livre gratuit qui "donne des clés pour comprendre" l'immigration en Belgique

Un livre gratuit qui "donne des clés pour comprendre" l'immigration en Belgique | Open-Up Public Science! | Scoop.it
"Dans nos politiques de publication en tant que scientifiques, on a deux choix, grosso modo. On peut soit aller pour des éditeurs coûteux et souvent qui vont mettre une série de barrières en termes de prix à l'achat d'ouvrages, ou on peut tenter de trouver un accord avec les éditeurs pour que les ouvrages soient mis en ligne immédiatement pour faciliter l'accès. Et dans ce cas-ci, ça se prête particulièrement bien à ce qu'on appelle 'l'open access', l'accès ouvert, de la recherche parce que c'est un ouvrage qui est destiné au grand public. C'est un ouvrage de vulgarisation qui est vraiment destiné à nourrir le débat, ce n'est pas un ouvrage pro-migration, loin de là, c'est un ouvrage qui vise à donner des clés pour comprendre". (Jean-Michel Lafleur, sociologue et directeur adjoint du CEDEM, le Centre d'Etudes de l'Ethnicité et des Migrations de l’ULiège)
Bernard Rentier's insight:
Le lectorat d’un livre publié en Open Access, donc gratuit, est décuplé par rapport au même, s’il est payant. Un livre aussi essentiel doit être accessible au plus grand nombre. Quand il s’agit du fruit du travail d’auteurs du service public, il doit être gratuitement accessible au public. Bravo aux auteurs, qui ont fait le choix courageux de rendre cet ouvrage essentiel librement accessible à tous plutôt que d’arrondir personnellement leurs fins de mois et de réserver sa diffusion à un public qui a des moyens ou qui fréquente les bibliothèques universitaires. L’Open Access révèle ici sa plus formidable qualité.

An excellent initiative. But why can’t Europe build a similar open public platform for sharing the publication of research results ? A still successful publishers’ lobby ? The resilience of the so-called « gold standard » of the peer review ?

The new alchemy: Online networking, data sharing and research activity distribution tools for scientists [F1000Research Article]

There is an abundance of free online tools accessible to scientists and others that can be used for online networking, data sharing and measuring research impact. Despite this, few scientists know how these tools can be used or fail to take advantage of using them as an integrated pipeline to raise awareness of their research outputs.

Open Access: les éditeurs-requins entrent en guerre

Open Access: les éditeurs-requins entrent en guerre | Open-Up Public Science! | Scoop.it
Nous avions laissé éditeurs et ResearchGate fin septembre en position d’observateurs, chaque camp campant sur ses positions. Rappelons en effet que le 15 septembre 2017, l’association d’éditeurs STM envoyait, via son cabinet d’avocats, une proposition à ResearchGate afin de rendre le réseau « plus compatible avec les droits d’usage et d’accès pour partager des articles », […]
Bernard Rentier's insight:
Voici le moment où la grande industrie multinationale de la publication de recherche entre en guerre contre les initiatives de mise à disposition de tous de l’information scientifique. Et ils le font « au nom de la défense des droits de la création ». À ceci près que la création, c’est le fait des auteurs et que ceux-ci, s’ils veulent être publiés, sont obligés de signer l’abandon de leurs droits au profit de l’intermédiaire, le publieur (pompeusement appelé, à tort, en français, l’éditeur, même s’il n’édite plus grand chose et se contente presque complètement de publier).Il est donc illusoire de concevoir l’accès libre comme une possibilité de renier après-coup les engagements contractuels, mais de développer un système de communication scientifique conçu, géré et contrôlé par les chercheurs eux-mêmes. Et de veiller à ne plus lier l’évaluation du chercheur à sa conformation à des critères obsolètes de prestige indirect.

ScholarlyHub will redefine scholarly social networks

ScholarlyHub will redefine scholarly social networks | Open-Up Public Science! | Scoop.it
ScholarlyHub aims to become a member-run and owned, non-profit portal for sharing and improving scholarly communications among scholars and between scholars and the public at large. It seeks to provide a dynamic, multidisciplinary, peer-to-peer, open-access environment that combines traditional and innovative quality control procedures, pre- and post-publication services, and opportunities for network-based collaboration, publication, mentorship, learning and debate. Its successful development will make scholarship across disciplines visible and accessible, foster the sustainable preservation of research and protect scholars’ independence from conglomerate publishers’ market-oriented needs on the one hand and myopic government agendas on the other.

The Shooter - Help improve science and train an algorithm to detect why a study cites another study. | Open-Up Public Science! | Scoop.it
Before having an algorithm annotate thousands of papers, you need to do it yourself first (aka. build a corpus). So far we scored about 12.000 citations ourselves. This is good, but not enough. The articles are all taken from PLOS (they made "All of Plos" available at last year's OpenCon, YAAY!)We need you to help us out here: We created a game called "The Shooter" that allows you to select a citation and decide for yourself what claim it makes. (Spoiler alert: Most citations are just mentioning the reference) Try it out for yourself and let us know how it works for you. We would love your feedback on the idea in general and the shooter in particular as we just started off with this!https://shooter.verumanalytics.io/ Warm regards,Peter Grabitz and Josh Nicholson--

The State of OA: A large-scale analysis of the prevalence and impact of Open Access articles.

Despite growing interest in Open Access (OA) to scholarly literature, there is an unmet need for large-scale, up-to-date, and reproducible studies assessing the prevalence and characteristics of OA. We address this need using oaDOI, an open online service that determines OA status for 67 million articles. We use three samples, each of 100,000 articles, to investigate OA in three populations: 1) all journal articles assigned a Crossref DOI, 2) recent journal articles indexed in Web of Science, and 3) articles viewed by users of Unpaywall, an open-source browser extension that lets users find OA articles using oaDOI. We estimate that at least 28% of the scholarly literature is OA (19M in total) and that this proportion is growing, driven particularly by growth in Gold and Hybrid. The most recent year analyzed (2015) also has the highest percentage of OA (45%). Because of this growth, and the fact that readers disproportionately access newer articles, we find that Unpaywall users encounter OA quite frequently: 47% of articles they view are OA. Notably, the most common mechanism for OA is not Gold, Green, or Hybrid OA, but rather an under-discussed category we dub Bronze: articles made free-to-read on the publisher website, without an explicit Open license. We also examine the citation impact of OA articles, corroborating the so-called open-access citation advantage: accounting for age and discipline, OA articles receive 18% more citations than average, an effect driven primarily by Green and Hybrid OA. We encourage further research using the free oaDOI service, as a way to inform OA policy and practice.
