Custom Search Narrow your Google search to US colleges & universites by adding site:edu to your query term. For Canadian results, try adding site:ca intitle:university instead. Need to find journal articles or scholarly or academic research papers?

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy Oxford Open | Oxford Open OUP Supports Open Access Oxford University Press (OUP) is mission-driven to facilitate the widest possible dissemination of high-quality research. We embrace both green and gold open access (OA) publishing to support this mission. A Proven Track Record of Success OUP has been publishing OA content since 2004. We have also successfully launched or taken over high-quality OA titles, including: Genome Biology and Evolution, Journal of Legal Analysis, Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, and Database. OUP facilitates green OA either by allowing authors to deposit versions of their manuscripts in institutional or subject repositories after a specified time period, or depositing the version of record on their behalf. Supporting the Evolution of Open Access Publishing Sustainable, high-quality OA publishing requires either funding to be available to pay for Article Processing Charges, sponsorship, or suitable embargo periods. Oxford Journals operates two different open access models:

IVR Cheat Sheet(tm) by Paul English The WWW Virtual Library Welcome to Cogprints Rad Research Fukushima nuclear disaster: PM at the time feared Japan would collapse | World news Japan's prime minister at the height of the nuclear crisis has said he feared the country would collapse, and revealed that Tepco had considered abandoning the Fukushima Daiichi power plant after it was hit by the 11 March tsunami. In candid interviews with Japanese newspapers, Naoto Kan, who resigned this month, said that at one point he believed the disaster could become many times worse than Chernobyl. "It was truly a spine-chilling thought," he told the Tokyo Shimbun, adding that he foresaw a situation in which greater Tokyo's 30 million people would have to be evacuated, a move that would "compromise the very existence of the Japanese nation". In the first week of the crisis Tepco played down speculation that fuel rods had melted after the quake and tsunami crippled the reactors' cooling systems. "The power was totally lost and there was no cooling capacity," Kan said. "I knew what that meant and I thought, 'This is going to be a disaster'."
