DRM-technology should not be forced upon academics #BlockReadcube  
Wiley & Readcube have done something rather sneaky recently, and it's not escaped the attention of diligent readers of the scientific literature. Dear @wileyonlinelib, If I ask for a PDF, don&#...

If peer-review is a fundamental aspect of how science is done then we in academia are required to act as reviewers as part of our jobs. I assume there is no real argument as to if peer-review is needed. Instead one can argue ...

The information racketeers are trying to increase their monopoly. It is just a proposed merger at the moment. Those in the UK(?) & Germany(?) can contact their relevant competition & anti-trust commissions to oppose this move #SpringerNPGmerger

Stuart Lawson has sent FOI requests to all UK universities not in the Russell group and has found out what they paid to Wiley, Springer, Taylor and Francis, Sage, OUP and CUP in the years 2010-2014. (Apparently information about Elsevier will be added later.) I haven't perused the data yet, so I don't know what it reveals. For now I'm just happy that it's out there in the public domain.

Now that Readcube has assimilated NPG journals & Wiley content, it looks like they'll cubify Springer content too... http://www.davidworlock.com/2015/01/the-ultimate-question-is-scale/

Great read... They won't do any of your suggestions but fun to see they pretend they are listening

Introduction
I'm a BBSRC-funded researcher at the University of Bath working on extracting phylogeny from the literature using content mining. I started out as a Biology undergrad student at Imperial College, progressed to a Masters degree at the Natural History Museum, London, and submitted my PhD thesis on fossils and phylogeny at the University of Bath in 2013.

As a direct consequence of my research I have become involved with the Open Knowledge Foundation, particularly the Open Science Working Group as I think there is much room for improvement in the way that science is currently done - particularly with regard to providing Open Data & Code in re-usable and frictionless ways.

As of 2012 I am a Panton Fellowcouncil member of the Systematics Association
