OpenDoar - Directory of OA Repositories
The Directory of Open Access Repositories - OpenDOAR Search for repositories | Search repository contents | List of repositories | Repository Statistics OpenDOAR is an authoritative directory of academic open access repositories. Each OpenDOAR repository has been visited by project staff to check the information that is recorded here. This in-depth approach does not rely on automated analysis and gives a quality-controlled list of repositories. OpenDOAR has also been identified as a key resource for the Open Access community (K.B.Oliver & R.Swain, 2006 - PDF) and identified as the leader in repository directories in a study by Johns Hopkins University.

SIOR. Social Impact Open Repository - U Barcelona SIOR (Social Impact Open Repository) is an open access repository to display, share and store the social impact of research results. Achieving impact is a growing demand from society to science and to scientists, but this information had not yet been systematically gathered and registered. SIOR is the first open access worldwide registry on social impact, a non-profit initiative to enhance scientific research with social impact. By including their evidence of social impact in SIOR, researchers and research institutions make clear contributions to science, to societies and to their own work. There are many social impacts from research projects which are unknown by society, but will be clarified in this repository. Citizens, institutions and funding agencies will find in SIOR both a general overview and very concrete evidence of research having social impact.

List of video hosting services Video hosting services refers to websites or software where users can distribute their video clips. Other sites such as file hosting services, image hosting services and social network services might support video sharing as an enhancement to their primary mission, but in general, they are not listed here. Many services have options for private sharing and other publication options. Video sharing services can be classified into several categories, among them: user generated video sharing websites, video sharing platform / white label providers and web based video editing. Websites that are solely search engines and do not provide the hosting of their video content (such as Singingfish) are not included in this article. Some services may charge, but the large majority of video sharing sites offer their service for free.

Fabrics that transmit biomedical data Smart fabric is durable, malleable, and can be woven with cotton or wool. Horizontal lines are antennas. (Credit: Stepan Gorgutsa, Universite Laval) Canadian researchers have developed “smart textiles” able to monitor and transmit wearers’ biomedical information via wireless or cellular network by superimposing multiple layers of copper, polymers, glass, and silver.

Collaboration is the key to access: A scientific publisher’s view April 2016 By Carlo Scollo Lavizzari, Attorney, Lenz Caemmerer, Basel, Switzerland, Legal Counsel to STM: The International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers Scientific, technical and medical (STM) publishers operate in one of the most dynamic and innovative fields, one which combines scholarly communication and information technology. They use licensing to make content available both to individual readers and to those affiliated with libraries, research and educational institutions, or corporations. Publishers are able to license the use of the content they publish on open access terms (i.e. free of charge, unrestricted access and unrestricted reuse) to targeted readers and the wider public. Licensing partners include consortia of institutional libraries, and sometimes an entire region or country may establish a national or regional license to ensure readers have ready access to content within a geographically defined area.

Tech-Styles: Are Consumers Really Interested in Wearing Tech on their Sleeves? As more consumers carry mobile devices wherever they go, high-tech brand manufacturers recently put wearable technology front and center during CES in Las Vegas and at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Seventy percent of consumers are already aware of “wearables,” and about one in six (15%) of them currently use wearable tech—such as smart watches and fitness bands—in their daily lives. With experts predicting wearable tech to be the next big thing in consumer electronics, Nielsen asked consumers about the kinds of gadgets they would wear in the new Connected Life Report. To understand the appeal of wearable tech, who better to turn to than those who are already using these devices. The majority of wearables owners are young, with nearly half (48%) between 18-34 years old, and men and women are equally likely to don wearable tech. What motivates consumers to purchase wearable tech depends largely on the type of device and the benefits each offers for their everyday lives.
