Five years ago, in What is Web 2.0, Tim O’Reilly said that “data is the next Intel Inside.” But what does that statement mean? Why do we suddenly care about statistics and about data? p31-special-sw-section-5.pdf (Objet application/pdf) For Scholars, Web Changes Sacred Rite of Peer Review. Big Brother au service des sciences sociales. Unmeasurable Science. On Wednesday PLoS BLOGs launched with a splash.
We (both PLoS BLOGs as a whole and me individually) got a lot of positive feedback and words of encouragement – so we are off to a good start. As both our community manager Brian Mossop and myself are currently in London for the Science Online London Conference, we could celebrate the launch in person. With a good pint of British ale Thursday evening.
Today I want to talk about something that is sticking in my head since a conversation a few weeks ago with some friends (all esteemed professors in biology or medicine) over another beer. Too Many Researchers Are Reluctant to Share Their Data - Commentary. By Felicia LeClere A new model of data sharing and openness is emerging in the scientific community that replaces traditional ways of thinking about research findings as the private property of the primary investigator.
Large granting agencies, including the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, have embraced the new model of more-open access to research data. Later this year, the NSF will start requiring scientists seeking research grants to include a data-management plan in their applications, describing how and when their data will be shared.
The issue has also captured the attention of a U.S. ChemSpider - Database of Chemical Structures and Property Predictions. Valoriser et diffuser l'information scientifique sur le web. E-science , e-recherche, e-research, cyberinfrastructure ... PostGutenberg Peer Review. Joseph Esposito [JE] asks, in liblicense-l: JE: “What happens when the number of author-pays open access sites grows and these various services have to compete with one another to get the finest articles deposited in their respositories?”
Green OA mandates require deposit in each author's own institutional repository. Science 2.0 Pioneers. Credit: lorenzodom Surely you’ve noticed: The scientific community is undergoing a research-and-data-sharing sea change.
Perhaps slower to take to Web-based dissemination than some professions, science—the endeavor for which the World Wide Web was developed—has gradually been adopting new online methods for distributing knowledge. Some say the changes could accelerate scientific progress. From open-access journals to research-review blogs, from collaboration by wiki to epidemiology by Blackberry, networked knowledge has made more science more accessible more quickly and to more people around the globe than could have been imagined 20 years ago. Croyez-vous au Réseaux Sociaux Pour Chercheurs ? There has been tens, if not hundreds, of attempts to launch social networks for scientists and for researchers over the last 3 years.
The new “Linkedin for Researchers” or “Facebook for Scientists”: www.collab.com, www.academia.edu, www.academiaconnect.org, biomedexperts.com etc. Even the Fondation Pierre Gilles de Gennes recently launched its social network for scientists. Although a few of them provide real incentives for researchers ( etc.), although some of them provide really useful tools for scientists ( etc.), most of them, however, fail or will fail. BioTorrents: A File Sharing Service for Scientific Data.
The transfer of scientific data has emerged as a significant challenge, as datasets continue to grow in size and demand for open access sharing increases.
Current methods for file transfer do not scale well for large files and can cause long transfer times. In this study we present BioTorrents, a website that allows open access sharing of scientific data and uses the popular BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing technology. BioTorrents allows files to be transferred rapidly due to the sharing of bandwidth across multiple institutions and provides more reliable file transfers due to the built-in error checking of the file sharing technology.

Librarians still have vital role in the Web 2.0 era - SCIENCE INTELLIGENCE. Information professional Hervé Basset shares his observations about the role of Web 2.0 technology in science intelligence in industry In the past months much has been written about the hyped Web 2.0.
Evangelists have talked about applying this to almost everything published or diffused online. Many people expect scientists to be leaders of the Web 2.0 pack. Parallel Archive. Parallel Archive - The Project. Our scope Parallel Archive (PA) is an online repository created by and for scholars to store and share their archival documents. It was developed by the Open Society Archives (OSA) with the generous support of the Institute of Record. The project builds on OSA's long-term efforts to collect, preserve, and make available material related to recent history and contemporary human rights while experimenting with innovative ways to contextualize primary sources.
PA is the centerpiece of OSA's research into the changing role of archives in the digital environment. It aims to support and extend the role of archives in research by making it possible to study primary sources directly online, by encouraging archives and individuals to publicize their material, and by providing a space for collaborative work. Science and Technology Newsletters: Science 2.0 - Time to Move Forward. Science 2.0: Communicating Science in a Web 2.0 World. The increasing popularity of blogs, social networking sites, and twitter has cre ated many new and interactive forums for people to communicate about science.
The National Academies recently invited Phil Plait, author of the blog BAD ASTRONOMY and president of the James Randi Educational Foundation to speak about these technologies and how they are being used by science. This podcast provides some highlights from his presentation. Byte Size Biology » Science 2.0: things that work and things that don’t.

WebCite. Science Commons. The more we understand about science and its complexities, the more important it is for scientific data to be shared openly. It’s not useful to have ten different labs doing the same research and not sharing their results; likewise, we’re much more likely to be able to pinpoint diseases if we have genomic data from a large pool of individuals. Since 2004, we’ve been focusing our efforts to expand the use of Creative Commons licenses to scientific and technical research. Science Advisory Board Open Access The Scholars’ Copyright Project.
