Global Open Access Portal

Global Open Access Portal
The Global Open Access Portal (GOAP) funded by the Governments of Colombia, Denmark, Norway, and the United States Department of State, presents a current snapshot of the status of Open Access (OA) to scientific information in 158 countries worldwide. For countries that have been more successful in implementing Open Access, the portal highlights critical success factors and aspects of the enabling environment. For countries and regions that are still in the early stages of Open Access development, the portal identifies key players, potential barriers and opportunities. The Global Open Access Portal is designed to provide necessary information for policy-makers to: Learn about the global Open Access environment;View their country’s status; andUnderstand where and why Open Access has been most successful. At a glance, the portal provides an overview of the framework surrounding Open Access in UNESCO Member States by focusing on: Related:  PhD

Digital Curation Bibliography: Preservation and Stewardship of Scholarly Works, 2012 Supplement In a rapidly changing technological environment, the difficult task of ensuring long-term access to digital information is increasingly important.

Crowdsourcing Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le crowdsourcing, ou externalisation ouverte[1] ou production participative[2], est l'utilisation de la créativité, de l'intelligence et du savoir-faire d'un grand nombre de personnes, en sous-traitance, pour réaliser certaines tâches traditionnellement effectuées par un employé ou un entrepreneur. Ceci se fait par un appel ciblé (quand un niveau minimal d'expertise est nécessaire) ou par un appel ouvert à d'autres acteurs. Le travail est éventuellement rémunéré. Il peut s'agir de simplement externaliser des tâches ne relevant pas du métier fondamental de l'entreprise, ou de démarches plus innovantes. C'est un des domaines émergents de la gestion des connaissances, Il existe de nombreuses formes, outils, buts et stratégies du crowdsourcing[3]. Origine du terme[modifier | modifier le code] Le terme crowdsourcing est un néologisme sémantiquement calqué sur l'outsourcing (externalisation). Historique[modifier | modifier le code]

Open Access to science papers will be default by 2020, say European ministers – Frontiers Blog By Emily Barker, Communications Strategist at Frontiers There was a breakthrough for open-access publishing on Friday 27 May, as EU research ministers published a commitment to make open access to scientific publications as the default option by 2020. “It’s a major step forward,” said EU Research Commissioner Carlos Moedas. “You cannot stop the movement. Publishers will have to change their business models.” What does this mean for science publishing? The open-access movement isn’t new. Unlike traditional publishing, the costs for open-access publishers are far lower as they have no costs for paper or printing distribution. Most importantly, open-access publishers are innovative. Open-access publishing will also help bring more science into the spotlight. However, Frontiers found that there was no correlation between rejection and impact. Frontiers citations rates are amongst the very highest when compared to journals in the same categories with low rejection rates. Related

Born Digital: building the ultimate open-access publisher – Frontiers Blog By Pascal Rocha da Silva, Frontiers The digital disruption for analog film started in 1975 with the invention of the digital camera by Steven Sasson and ended with the bankruptcy of Kodak in 2012 (40 years later). The digital disruption in publishing started in the late 1990s with the first online archiving of articles, but it is still far from complete (~30 years into the transition). However, as over 30% of peer-reviewed papers are now published in some form of open-access1, the industry has technically crossed the tipping point for disruption. This is the point where more than just the innovators and early adopters begin using a product or service. Figure 1: Projection of open access versus subscription articles: 2000-2021. Disruptions are driven by economic models that lower costs, and process models that increase efficiency. Digital online publishing dispenses of print, expensive offline processes, shipping of content and is therefore far more efficient. 1 B. 3. 4 A. Related
