DADI : bases de données gratuites Près de 20 ans après sa création, le répertoire de bases de Données grAtuites Disponibles sur Internet ferme ses portes. Crée en 1996 Dadi, produit pionnier et phare de l’URFIST de Lyon, a eu pour objectif de recenser les ressources libres disponibles sur le Web à une époque où ce dernier faisait ses premiers pas, sans moteurs de recherches. Jean Pierre Lardy, alors co-responsable de l’Urfist de Lyon et enseignant chercheur en physique, a imaginé puis animé Dadi pendant une quinzaine d’années, dans le but de donner à voir les ressources du web invisible en libre accès utiles au monde académique. Véritable aide à la recherche dans un univers en pleine mutation, DADI connaîtra un usage important et comptera parmi les ressources incontournables en France pour la recherche d’information. Son impact rayonnera dans les pays francophones comme la Belgique et le Canada.

Metabuscadores Los buscadores (“Search Engine”), entre otros componentes, constan de grandes bases de datos donde se almacena la información que sus robots de búsqueda extraen de la red. Cada buscador está configurado bajo una serie de parámetros que cada compañía considera los más adecuados para ordenar las búsquedas y mostrar los resultados. Hoy por hoy, los buscadores más conocidos son Google, Bing y Yahoo. Te propongo un sencillo ejercicio: prueba a introducir las mismas palabras clave de búsqueda en cada uno de ellos. Comprobarás que salen distintos resultados. Esto se debe, como estamos comentando, a que los filtros de configuración y rastreo son diferentes.

Public Knowledge Project Open Journal Systems “Scholars need the means to launch a new generation of journals committed to open access, and to help existing journals that elect to make the transition to open access…”Budapest Open Access Initiative, 2002 Open Journal Systems (OJS) is a journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project through its federally funded efforts to expand and improve access to research. OJS 3 is Here! Scientific journals - rankings / Links / Welcome - CEFAGE Journal Citation Reports presents quantifiable statistical data that provides a systematic, objective way to evaluate the world's leading journals and their impact and influence in the global research community. SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper) and SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) are both powered by SCOPUS and offer the value of context in the world of citations. The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the SCOPUS database. Eigenfactor ranks journals much as Google ranks websites.

Fuld & Company - The Global Leader in Competitive Intelligence - Home Page Publish or Perish Are you applying for tenure, promotion or a new job? Do you want to include evidence of the impact of your research? Is your work cited in journals which are not ISI listed? 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. The report proposes a set of criteria for those considering introducing open government data in middle-income or developing countries.
