I dunno what the reasons for this promotion is here, but to me it feels like they want ReadCube adoption, and prepare the market for ReadCube and dropping PDF. They did a really good job already making it really hard to extract even single words from ReadCube (there were still some minor glitches in their obfuscating, see my blog)... one can only hope they will keep providing machine readable formats of Open literature, but the ReadCube signs are not promising...

The UK has made "substantial progress" towards ensuring Open Access publication of publicly funded research since the Finch Report was published in 2012, according to an independent advisory report to government.

But... only "20% of them freely available on the day of publication."

\n. Last year, the figshare team spent a lot of time building out new functionalities while working closely with our core groups and advisors to gather as much relevant feedback as possible. \n. Our early conversations showed that the Collections functionality was a must have and you can see it ...

Happy 14th birthday to the Budapest Open Access Initiative.

Today is the 14th birthday of the BOAI <http://goo.gl/hm869>, and the 4th birthday of its 10th anniversary update <http://goo.gl/7fqDYT>. I'm proud of my association with both.

As we put it in the 10th anniversary statement, the BOAI "didn't invent the idea of OA. On the contrary, it deliberately drew together existing projects to explore how they might 'work together to achieve broader, deeper, and faster success.' But the BOAI was the first initiative to use the term 'open access' for this purpose, the first to articulate a public definition, the first to propose complementary strategies for realizing OA, the first to generalize the call for OA to all disciplines and countries, and the first to be accompanied by significant funding."

Happy Valentines Day to all who are working for OA worldwide!

It's the year many negotiators got seriously tough on double dipping - charging for both the ability to read (via subscriptions) and for publishing (author processing charges, or APCs).
