Toward a New Model of Scientific Publishing: Discussion and a Proposal

First, this paper is an attempt to describe the problems with scientific publishing as it is currently instantiated. We are both cognitive neuroscientists, and while some of the issues discussed in this paper are undoubtedly applicable to a wide array of fields they are most directly applicable to the fields of psychology and neuroscience. Second, this paper is an attempt to lay out, in a very broad way, the quantifiable and intangible costs and benefits associated with publishing so that both the functioning of the current system and the relative costs of alternatives can be evaluated. To provide some empirical basis we performed an informal survey of colleagues to obtain estimates of some of the costs. The paper begins with a brief discussion of the current system from an historical perspective with consideration of its modern function. Current System History and Modern Purpose.

A graduate of Y Combinator’s Summer 20011 class, Everyme wants to reinvent the way you experience your mobile address book. Co-founder Oliver Cameron (fellow co-founder is former MySpace engineer Vibhu Norby) tells me that the address book is ‘incredibly broken,’ and that there has been ‘little to no innovation’ taking place that has made a meaningful impact on the user experience.

Everyme, which will launch its iPhone app in November, allows you to import your contacts from your phone’s address book and match this data from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

O'Reilly Open Books Project. About Open Books O'Reilly has published a number of Open Books--books with various forms of "open" copyright--over the years.

O'Reilly Open Books Project

The reasons for "opening" copyright, as well as the specific license agreements under which they are opened, are as varied as our authors. Perhaps a book was outdated enough to be put out of print, yet some people still needed the information it covered. Or the author or subject of a book felt strongly that it should be published under a particular open copyright. Maybe the book was written collectively by a particular community, as in the case of our Community Press books.

But there's more to making Open Books available online than simply adopting an open license or giving up rights granted under copyright law. We're happy to have partnered with two innovative nonprofits, Creative Commons and the Internet Archive, to solve the licensing and digitizing challenges involved in bringing Open Books to readers.

The Mongoliad. Next Read for IPhone - PCWorld. As a voracious reader with bibliomaniacal tendencies, I welcome any tool that helps me to manage what I'm reading and, perhaps more important, what I'm going to read next. Next Read by Square Wheel Software is aimed at readers who find themselves struggling to remember the name of that novel a friend recommended the other day or the author of that fascinating new biography they heard about on BookTV. The app for the iPhone and iPod Touch is in some ways elegant, but an imperfect solution for managing your reading--in short, a great premise stumbles in the exposition. Reference. Omeka.
