Begun in 2007, the Google Knol project has provided people in many fields with a place to share their knowledge and expertise with the world using a platform designed for scholarly authoring and publishing. Starting today, those same authors can move their articles and collaborative journals to WordPress—and they have the power to choose whether to move to a self-hosted WordPress installation powered by the freely-available, open-source Annotum themes, or to have their Annotum-powered site hosted for free here on WordPress.com.

Knol will slowly shut down over the next year, and we’ve worked closely with Google, Solvitor LLC, and Crowd Favorite to make this transition as simple as possible. We here at WordPress.com are thrilled to provide an easy, fast way for Knol authors to move to their new homes without the need for configuring their own installation. Like this: Like Loading...

Edit The new search engine features three main improvements over the old search engine, namely: Better support for searching in different languages.Faster updates to the search index, meaning changes to articles are reflected in search results much faster.Expanding templates, meaning that all content in an article that's in a template is now reflected in search results.

Updates to the search index are done in near real time. The search suggestions you get when you type into the search box that drops down candidate pages is substantively the same with articles sorted by the number of incoming links. ASCII/accents/diacritics folding is turned on for English text, but there are some formatting problems with the result.

§StemmingEdit In search terminology, support for "stemming" means that a search for "swim" will also include "swimming" and "swimmed", but not "swam". Internet Archive: Projects.

Open Access Frontiers provides full open access to all its publications across every field of research launched. The first definition of open access was provided by the Budapest Open Access Initiative in February 2002 and it envisages “free and unrestricted online availability” of journal literature, i.e. the double advantage for readers that research publications become both toll-free and royalty-free. At Frontiers, the entire content of all present and past journals is immediately and permanently accessible online free of charge. Furthermore, all articles published in Frontiers are subject to an exclusive license agreement between the authors and Frontiers, so that readers are permitted unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original authors and the source are credited.

Is open access research-free? Frontiers has developed a solid business model to ensure the long-term stability of the program.

An open standard is a standard that is publicly available and has various rights to use associated with it, and may also have various properties of how it was designed (e.g. open process).

There is no single definition and interpretations vary with usage. The terms "open" and "standard" have a wide range of meanings associated with their usage. There are a number of definitions of open standards which emphasize different aspects of openness, including of the resulting specification, the openness of the drafting process, and the ownership of rights in the standard. The term "standard" is sometimes restricted to technologies approved by formalized committees that are open to participation by all interested parties and operate on a consensus basis. Many definitions of the term "standard" permit patent holders to impose "reasonable and non-discriminatory licensing" royalty fees and other licensing terms on implementers and/or users of the standard.
