Itä-Suomen Kemistiseura « Suomalaisten Kemistien Seura Itä-Suomen Kemistiseura (ISKS) on Suomalaisten Kemistien Seuran (SKS) paikallisseura, joka toimii Itä-Suomen alueella. Pääasiassa toiminta on keskittynyt Joensuu-Kuopio akselille, koska pääosa seuran aktiivijäsenistä työskentelee tällä alueella. Vahvimmin seuran toiminnassa ovatkin olleet mukana Joensuun ja Kuopion yliopistojen henkilökuntaan ja opiskelijoihin kuuluvat jäsenet. Itä-Suomen Kemistiseura perustettiin vuonna 1977 Itä-Suomessa toimivien kemistien yhteisöksi, jonka tarkoituksena on kemian eri alojen tutkimuksen ja teollisuuden edistäminen. Seuran kotipaikkana oli Kuopio ja se sai jo perustamisvaiheessa hyvät edellytykset toimia nimensä mukaisesti koko Itä-Suomen alueella. Toiminnan tukipisteinä ovat olleet alueen yliopistojen ja muiden tutkimus- ja oppilaitosten aktiiviset kemistit. Seura huolehtii jäsenten täydennyskoulutuksesta sekä yhteyksistä muihin kemisteihin ja kemian alan tiedeorganisaatioihin. Itä-Suomen Kemistiseurassa oli 31.12.2009 94 jäsentä.

Why Hasn’t Scientific Publishing Been Disrupted Already Photo from iStockphoto. Looking back on 2009, there was one particular note that seemed to sound repeatedly, resonating through the professional discourse at conferences and in posts throughout the blogosphere: the likelihood of disruptive change afoot in the scientific publishing industry. Here in the digital pages of the Scholarly Kitchen, for example, we covered John Wilbanks’ presentation at SSP IN and Michael Nielsen’s talk at the 2009 STM Conference. They were both thoughtful presentations and I agree with many of the points raised by both speakers. It has occurred to me, however, that I would likely have agreed with arguments that scientific publishing was about to be disrupted a decade ago—or even earlier. When Tim Berners-Lee created the Web in 1991, it was with the aim of better facilitating scientific communication and the dissemination of scientific research. And yet it has. It is breathtaking to look back over the events of the last 18 years since the birth of the Web.

How to Make a Paper Airplane | Origami for Kids C&EN: COVER STORY - OPENING ACCESS Time was, a researcher typed a manuscript and mailed it to a publisher. If the manuscript made it through peer review and was accepted, the author could expect the article to appear in a printed journal some months later. How times have changed. Now a researcher submits a digital manuscript, which the publisher passes on to reviewers, who may offer feedback in as little as a day. Digital capabilities clearly have enhanced the publishing process, and in isolation, they might have left the fundamentals of the journal market unchanged. First, prices for many journals that cover science, technology, and medicine (STM) have risen substantially over the past decade, particularly for those produced by commercial publishers. At the same time, Internet users have grown accustomed to being able to jump around the Web to access nearly any conceivable piece of information and in many cases to read it for free. Publishers are experimenting with all these models and more. Steven M.

Frans Johansson: The Secret Truth About Executing Great Ideas :: Videos :: The 99 Percent In this high-energy talk, Frans Johansson illustrates how relentless trial-and-error – coming up with an idea, executing it on a small scale, and then refining it – is THE distinguishing characteristic of the greatest artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs. Why? Because humans are not very good at predicting which ideas are going to be a success. Thus, nearly every major breakthrough innovation has been preceded by a string of failed or misguided executions. Frans Johansson is an entrepreneur and thought leader. A successful author, Frans has written on a variety of topics, from business management to healthcare to sport fishing to how to save our oceans.
