Accepted and live!

Ready for #PortalAppealReview  66 to 0.

Rejected New Submission

Portal Title: St Catherine Square Fountain
Location: 55.3277,8.7652

Details

This is a valid portal because

1) It is a cool piece of art
2) Interesting story behind the location/object (the connection to St Catherine and the city of Ribe)

The fountain is in Street View, and the city of Ribe has it in its official tourist site.

Importantly, I think the photo in the tourist site that shows pedestrian tourists standing next to the fountain also alleviates the possible concern that the fountain is not in a safe place to hack (which could have been the cause for the initial rejection).

So I said: there needs to be a long German word for "the relief felt when admitting to a friend that you're not following them on a social network, and then they admit that they weren't following you either".

And the wondrous +Florian Rohrweck came back with "Sozialnetzwerknichtfolgungsgeständnisbekenntniserwiderungserleichterung" which, through the power of my high-school German and Google Translate[*], roughly translates to "social network not-following-confession confessional-reply relief".

And then someone else suggested 'We need a German word for "the desire to have a long German word for a concept that can easily be expained without it."' — Florian came back with "Germanistiktrivialkonzeptsäquivalenzverlangen" ("Germanic trivial concept equivalence request").

[*] OK, mostly Google Translate

A draft open-access mandate for Denmark.

The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation just released a draft open-access mandate for publicly-funded research in Denmark. It's a green policy (following the EU and US rather than the UK) and makes use of rights retention (following the Wellcome Trust, NIH, and Harvard). 

I called it a policy for publicly-funded research, but it aspires to go further: "To create free access for all citizens, researchers and companies to all research articles from Danish research institutions financed by public authorities and/or private foundations."

It doesn't yet include details that matter to OA specialists, e.g. timing of deposits, embargoes, open licensing, and application to data. But I imagine that these details will come in due time. Meanwhile the Ministry has signaled its commitment to open access and is open to comments.
