Special issue of CTWatch on the coming revolution in scholarly communication
I have been busy with grants and hacking so have been away from the blog. (Making good progress on new ways of inputting and displaying chemistry). Here is a very important set of papers which are all highly relevant to this blog. I had hoped to find time to comment on each individually, but for now here is the table of contents.
The August issue of Cyberinfrasctructure Technology Watch (CTWatch) is devoted to The Coming Revolution in Scholarly Communication and Cyberinfractructure. All the articles are OA-related:
- Lee Dirks and Tony Hey, Introduction
- Clifford Lynch, The Shape of the Scientific Article in The Developing Cyberinfrastructure
- Paul Ginsparg, Next-Generation Implications of Open Access
- Timo Hannay, Web 2.0 in Science
- J. Lynn Fink and Philip E. Bourne, Reinventing Scholarly Communication for the Electronic Age
- Herbert Van de Sompel and Carl Lagoze, Interoperability for the Discovery, Use, and Re-Use of Units of Scholarly Communication
- Tim Brody, Les Carr, Yves Gingras, Chawki Hajjem, Stevan Harnad, and Alma Swan, Incentivizing the Open Access Research Web: Publication-Archiving, Data-Archiving and Scientometrics
- Brian Fitzgerald and Kylie Pappalardo, The Law as Cyberinfrastructure
- John Wilbanks, Cyberinfrastructure For Knowledge Sharing
- Peter Suber, Trends Favoring Open Access
I will return to these as and when.
Also my mind is starting to turn to the Berlin-5 meeting … next post
