In search for the Generation Open, my post in response to Twitter discussion involving:

@curtrice @DrStelling @judsontwit @PlantEvolution @DJPMoore

#OpenAccess #GenerationOpen
I took part in an interesting Twitter discussion on Open Access and academia in general that was started by Curt Rice's article 'Wall Street analysts say open access has failed due to lack of focus, but their analysis might help it succeed.' This text includes some interesting observations, although it shares the disadvantage of most blog entries – it is too concise and leaves the reader with more questions than answers. Professor Rice (apparentl...

On the occasion of the European Day of Languages, we invite you to contribute to a crowdsourced article on linguistics together with us.

#‎EDL2014‬ #‎OpenLinguistics‬ ‪#‎LanguagesBoundries‬ ‪
Open Lingusitics, a new Open Access journal by De Gruyter Open, invites all researchers and students working in the field of linguistics to a joint effort. On the occasion of The European Day of Languages, the Open Linguistics' editor-in-chief, Sabine Ehrhart is starting an open discussion on the borders between languages, which may lead to a crowd-sourced, peer-reviewed paper, being published in this journal. The main idea behind the initiative ...

In any case, while #OpenAccess might be important, it is not revolutionary. It may decrease the cost of access to information but it will not (alone) speed up the rate of discovery or distribution of new ideas; it is a necessary, but not sufficient, part of the future of the academic publishing industry.

Social media may support your action conducted in the ‘real world’ (like attending conferences, participating in workshops, discussions etc.)
This post is the fifth part of my series 'How to promote an Open Access book?' Although having realized that it may apply to both books and papers, I decided to change the title a little bit. It is impossible to imagine promotion without the Internet and especially without social media. Obviously, this also includes promoting research. However, it is important not to overestimate the significance of Internet promotion – it can be worthless withou...

Have a look at this!

For some time I was looking for a good collaborative tool to write academic articles. And at this time, I cannot imagine anything better than Authorea – an on-line service co-founded by Nathan Jenkins and Alberto Pepe, two research scientists with a background in physics. Authorea is a very well designed tool, offering almost every possible facility for the article writing process. The service is free, as long as you keep your articles public. An...

Though this may be madness, there is method in it!

#peerreview  
Publons is a startup project and a website focusing on the peer review process. Thus, it is the next attempt to solve the widely discussed problems concerning a crucial point of scientific publishing. “Just as the electron is the fundamental unit of electricity, the publon is the fundamental unit of publishable content - "the elementary quantum of scientific research which justifies publication". Whenever you see 'publon', think 'research paper'”...

'Open discussion is fair for authors, more transparent and sometimes even more reliable than classical blind peer review. The Internet is a mass medium and it can be a more efficient tool for finding real “peers” than the direct approach of one scientist to another'

#OpenScience #PeerReview  
Terms like 'open peer review' and 'post publication peer review' are more and more popular and at the same time quite misleading. The Internet provides an opportunity to make work available to a broad audience at very low cost, thus there is less reason to wait for formal reviews, leading to a thin line between published and unpublished work. Peer review is the system of quality control in modern academic publishing. The idea behind it is simple:...

Altmetrics can count tweets, Facebook, Google Plus and blog posts etc. relating to a measured paper

'You write and publish a paper not only for your satisfaction, but also to achieve your professional goals. Thus you should publish in the best and most prestigious journal available to you.'
You should publish a paper in as good journal as it is possible for you. There is at least few steps that you should consider while choosing a journal

Story
Tagline
Dedicated to Open Access, scholarly publishing and monographs.
Introduction
As a form of scholarly publication, monographs offer a complete and detailed exposition of a substantial subject written for an expert audience. Yet, a decade or so ago, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the monograph was in terminal decline. Now, however, with the rise of Open Access, we have an opportunity to save and revitalise this format through providing free and unrestricted access to peer-reviewed academic monographs. This page will be dedicated to campaigning, discussing and disseminating information about Open Access books and monographs.
