Sites partenaires LIST OF INDIVIDUAL JOURNALS Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access journals This is a list of questionable, scholarly open-access standalone journals. For journals published by a publisher, please look for the publisher on the list of publishers, here. We recommend that scholars read the available reviews, assessments and descriptions provided here, and then decide for themselves whether they want to submit articles, serve as editors or on editorial boards. We hope that tenure and promotion committees can also decide for themselves how importantly or not to rate articles published in these journals in the context of their own institutional standards and/or geo-cultural locus.

TREASURE » Treatment and Sustainable Reuse of Effluents in semiarid climates TREASURE (for Treatment and Sustainable Reuse of Effluents in semiarid climates) is a scientific Euro-Mediterranean research consortium associating institutions from Southern Europe and Northern Africa countries about biological wastewater treatment plants and microbial ecosystems. It is coordinated by the MODEMIC research team and a research group in mathematics and automatic control of the University of Tlemcen, Algeria. At the origin of the consortium, in 2006, the involved partners only consisted of academics from France, Algeria, Italy and Tunisia. Today, it is a network of a dozen of partners from eight Mediterranean countries (cf. the “Partners” section). The network aims at promoting both research and education activities, the improvement and the diffusion of knowledge on bioprocesses and microbial ecosystems being among the main components of the project. In terms of research, this leads to :

Interstices : culture scientifique sur la recherche en informatique I love open access | Arguments pour l’accès ouvert aux résultats de la recherche ITSSv6 » IPv6 Stack for Cooperative ITS ITSSv6 builds on existing standards from ETSI, ISO and IETF and IPv6 software available from the CVIS and GeoNet projects. The IPv6 lTS station stack provided by ITSSv6 supports at least 802.11p and 2G/3G media types and is configured differently according to the role played by the ITS station (roadside, vehicle, central). Implemented IPv6 features specific to the Vehicle ITS station include NEMO and MCoA to maintain Internet continuity over multiple medias and IPv6 GeoNetworking for multi-hop communications between Vehicle and Roadside ITS stations over 802.11p. The IPv6 ITS station stack will be tested in relevant EU or National Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems’ Field Operational Tests (Cooperative ITS FOTs) and projects. The tasks of ITSSv6 tasks are to:

Fuscia Open Data Study – New Technologies Political power, information and rights issues have been energised in the US and UK by the pioneering introduction of open data. Making information about services, education and other data has been made publicly available on the web in both countries to help improve services and contribute to future economic growth. But can this approach be replicated to support progress in middle-income and developing countries? This paper explores the feasibility of applying a similar approach to open data in middle income and developing countries and identifies the factors behind the success in the US and UK and the pivotal strategies adopted in these contexts which helped bring together civil servants and ‘civic hackers’ to release government data. The report finds that 3 key groups or ‘layers’ were crucial to the successful introduction of open data. The report proposes a set of criteria for those considering introducing open government data in middle-income or developing countries.
