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. Technology: The data deluge EIGHTEEN months ago, Li & Fung, a firm that manages supply chains for retailers, saw 100 gigabytes of information flow through its network each day. Now the amount has increased tenfold. During 2009, American drone aircraft flying over Iraq and Afghanistan sent back around 24 years' worth of video footage.

Tactile Surface Temperature Mapping System Characterization of surface temperature of a person on a mattress using the Tactilus® Temperature Body Mapping Sensor System Tactilus® temperature sensor system in use in a retail environment Tactilus® temperature sensor system The Tactilus® temperature sensor system is designed to allow manufacturers and retailers to measure temperature distribution and magnitude between the customer and a sleeping surface. Open Access The Case for Open Access Open Access (OA) stands for unrestricted access and unrestricted reuse. Here’s why that matters. Most publishers own the rights to the articles in their journals.

Invisible Web: What it is, Why it exists, How to find it, and Its inherent ambiguity What is the "Invisible Web", a.k.a. the "Deep Web"? The "visible web" is what you can find using general web search engines. It's also what you see in almost all subject directories. 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.

Your data is your interface By Jarno Mikael Koponen On April 17, 2013 We all view the world differently and on our own terms. Each of us use different words to describe the same book, movie, favorite food, person, work of art, or news article. 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.
