SAGE Open Run My Code To allow researchers to quickly disseminate the results of their research. This will considerably increase the potential of citations of scientific papers.To provide a large community of users with the ability to use the latest scientific methods. This will speed up the process of converting scientific results into productive forces.To allow members of the academic community (researchers, editors, referees, etc.) to replicate scientific results and to demonstrate their robustness. This will increase transparency and trust in science.

Indeed, the most immediate challenge was to make it possible to access scientific literature resulting from public funding. Today, an increasing number of funder policies mandate open access, e.g. the EC's mandate on open access to publications in Horizon 2020. This type of policy often indeed focuses on access, is quite open regarding 'how' that access should be reached (green v. gold OA), and therefore sets few extra conditions regarding open access publishing and scholarly communication in general. We have now arrived at a moment in the history of open access when we can afford to ask for more. The 12 October 2015 EC Workshop on alternative OA business models (AlterOA) made a first step in this direction by bringing together information on existing AlterOA publishing models. But what is "fair" open access?
Optics Express Social media tips for scientists : Naturejobs Blog For many scientists, the thought of spending time on social media sites is distinctly unappealing. To some it’s just a question of time: why add to that to-do list which is already long enough? For others it’s more to do with social media itself, finding the idea of sharing thoughts and ideas with the whole world pointless or self-indulgent. If that sounds like you, it might be time to reconsider your options – social media includes much more than the usual suspects like Facebook and Twitter, and there are even sites dedicated to academics. Starting out in the world of social media can be daunting, especially when you have a serious professional reputation to uphold. Why use social media? Social media are go to places for expertise and advice so if you’re not taking part, you’re missing out. What types of social media should I use? Blogs are great, says Obsborne, not least because they can move with you across different roles. What type of information should I share? …but don’t ever post
BIOSECURITY_GOVT_NZ 14/06/13 New Management Agency for the National Bovine Tuberculosis Pest Management Plan A new management agency has been appointed for the National Bovine Tuberculosis (TB) Pest Management plan. In order for this to happen, the following changes will occur: Animal Health Board (AHB) Incorporated will resign its role as the management agency to take effect at midnight on 30 June 2013. From 1 July 2013 TBfree New Zealand Limited and National Animal Identification and Tracing (NAIT) Limited will become wholly-owned subsidiaries of Operational Solutions for Primary Industries (OSPRI) New Zealand Limited. The Minister for Primary Industries Nathan Guy has appointed TBfree New Zealand Limited as the agency responsible for the National Bovine TB Pest Management plan, with effect from 1 July 2013. “Bringing together what was formerly the Animal Health Board and NAIT Limited will enable the more efficient and flexible delivery of the Bovine TB management plan and the NAIT scheme,” says MPI Director of Preparedness and Partnerships David Hayes.
Criteria for Open Access and publishing – ScienceOpen In June 2015, the Committee on Publication Ethics, the Directory of Open Access Journals, the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association and the World Association of Medical Editors updated their joint statement, originally published in 2013: the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing . These principles were to a considerable extent derived from the criteria for the admission of journals into DOAJ that were expanded, updated and put into practice in March 2014 . In addition, 50 Science Europe members issued a statement in April  this year on four new guidelines for publishers when providing payments/subsidies for Open Access venues. The first principle states that journals must be listed in DOAJ, Web of Science, Scopus or PubMed. The second principle corresponds to one of the criteria that DOAJ uses for the Seal: authors must hold the copyright of their publication with no restrictions. Why doesn't DOAJ index hybrid journals?
