The Rest of the Iceberg: Publishing in Academic Journals for Early Career Researchers: Deadly Sins of Publishing: The Multiple Submission.

Deadly Sins of Publishing: Submission of a Paper to Multiple Journals This is a periodic column I plan to write that outlines some of the worst things you can do as a prospective author. These are things that might get you “watchlisted” if not blacklisted (no joke, I used to have a whiteboard up in my office with a list of names to watch for). A journal’s reaction to them will vary – some will just tell you how you are wrong, others will chalk it up to a rookie mistake, and then there’s the ones that will simply not engage with you in the future. I plan to do another column of “Lesser sins and misdemeanors” that will outline what we more or less file under rookie mistakes and hope they aren’t repeated. But this column is for the ones that are more serious than that. And so here is the launch of my “Deadly Sins” category: What do I mean by multiple submission of an article?

I mean you’ve taken a paper and submitted it to multiple journals at the same time. Why would anyone do this? International Assistance. Resources. Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. The General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization meeting in Paris from 17 October to 21 November 1972, at its seventeenth session, Noting that the cultural heritage and the natural heritage are increasingly threatened with destruction not only by the traditional causes of decay, but also by changing social and economic conditions which aggravate the situation with even more formidable phenomena of damage or destruction, Considering that deterioration or disappearance of any item of the cultural or natural heritage constitutes a harmful impoverishment of the heritage of all the nations of the world, Considering that protection of this heritage at the national level often remains incomplete because of the scale of the resources which it requires and of the insufficient economic, scientific, and technological resources of the country where the property to be protected is situated, Adopts this sixteenth day of November 1972 this Convention.

When you first discover libertarianism, there are certain names that jump out. It’s important to learn from intellectual giants like Ayn Rand and Murray Rothbard, but there are many unsung heroes that are also worth exploring. In this educational series, we hope to introduce students to such individuals. While not all of the figures profiled here explicitly identified as libertarian, they made great contributions to the cause of liberty that are worth acknowledging. When I was in high school, I took a math seminar that covered the idea of the tragedy of the commons.

The lecturer used game theory to explain that when a resource is held in common, the users are incentivized to overuse and deplete it. In her book Governing the Commons, Ostrom explores the wide variety of institutions people form to manage common pool resources. Garrett Hardin, who coined the phrase “tragedy of the commons,” was adamant that the problem could only be solved through regulation. The Sustainable Economics of Elinor Ostrom: Commons, contestation and craft. Elinor Ostrom, the Commons and Anti-Capitalism. | Derek Wall | In 2009, the American political economist Elinor Ostrom became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize in Economics. Strictly speaking, she was neither an economist nor was the prize a Nobel but, in fact, the Swedish bank prize. Born “poor”, in her own words, in California in the summer of 1933, she published Governing the Commons in 1990 and died in 2012 of cancer.

I was lucky enough to meet her myself and have been fortunate to spend the last two years researching her work in detail. I am an anti-capitalist, and while she would not have accepted this label, I will argue here that those who want to create a democratic and ecological economy that transcends the market and the state, will find enormous inspiration in her work. Ostrom’s main focus was examining how common pool resources could be managed. Margaret Levi: This was Garrett Hardin? Elinor Ostrom: Yes—not Russell [Hardin]. Also, Ostrom never identified with the traditional left. Enduring algorithms | i41. I was reading about smart, self-enforcing contracts and Judges as a Service the other day. And then about opening algorithms up to inspection, which follows on from the legible data vs seamless experience thing I've been thinking about. Some more interesting concepts.

Design Contractualism: … building in the rules that govern human behaviour for the collective good – in an effort to lay the ground for ethical algorithms. The piece is about Jeremy Pitt's work at Imperial College: The emergence of cognitive computing systems has stirred up fears in some quarters that they could remove a human sense of justice from decision-making. Pitt began to look at the possibility of introducing ideas of fair play into algorithms, so they could make judgements on human needs and the common good to help solve big societal problems … The talk is of electronic networks producing ethical outcomes and, therefore, enduring institutions. 8 Principles for Managing a Commons Define clear group boundaries.

The Taking Part survey has run since 2005 and is the key evidence source for DCMS.

It is a continuous face to face household survey of adults aged 16 and over in England and children aged 5 to 15 years old. This latest release presents rolling estimates incorporating data from the first three quarters of year 9 of the survey. As detailed in the last statistical release and on our consultation pages in March 2013, the responsibility for reporting Official Statistics on adult sport participation now falls entirely with Sport England. Sport participation data are reported on by Sport England in the Active People Survey. Released: 27 March 2014 Period covered: January 2013 to December 2013 Geographic coverage: National and Regional level data for England.

Next release date: A release of rolling annual estimates for adults is scheduled for June 2014. Summary: Statistical worksheets: These spreadsheets contain the data and sample sizes to support the material in this release. Previous release: Necessary but Not Sufficient: Modelling Online Archive Development in the UK. Introduction Since the mid 1990s archives have greatly expanded their online information and services, yet this is an area of archive development about which we know little.

We do not know the range of online services, features and information available, how these vary between archives or how they are delivered. The process of adding to our knowledge is hampered by the lack of a template for identifying and evaluating online archive information and services or a model for understanding their development. Without this information it is difficult to identify development paths, user requirements and appropriate technology, as well as the activities that can be supported or how archives compare to other information providers.

It is only by developing and testing such templates and models that we can begin to understand the current state of online archives, how they might develop and the challenges they face. Perhaps the work closest to the archival web model outlined below is Still's. 14 Easy Ways To Improve Any Piece Of Writing. “The struggle to improve our sentences, is the struggle to improve ourselves,” writes poet Mark Tredinnick. What is it that improves our writing? Essentially, clarity, connection, brevity and staying away from cliche. Here are some easy principles to help us get there: 1. Keep asking yourself: what am I saying? Writing is the process of winnowing our thoughts and emotions down to get rid of wobbles, lumps and fuzziness. 2. Structure a series of hooks or unanswered questions that keep your reader emotionally engaged. 3. Write like you talk. 4. Every sentence should have a subject, verb and object and in that order. 5.

Often, adjectives and adverbs are accessories, cluttering our sentences, while their meaning is absorbed by a more potent verb or noun. 6. Instead of writing, “He felt relieved,” say something like, “He couldn’t stop the shudder that escaped his lips.” 7. Hold onto the reins of your tenses so you don’t stray out of the past or present mindlessly. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14.
