Fumes! Ventilate very well, because most new carpet gives off formaldehyde and can cause neuro damage in unventilated spaces.

Searching Open Access Publications : identify you affiliation output

In order to increase the visibility of open access scientific and scholarly publications of the University Medical Center Groningen and thereby promoting their increased usage and impact, I am trying to create an automatically updating overview of OA publications of the UMCG, next to the beta WordPress blog that is being constructed to show all UMCG scientific publications
With the masive attention the Open Access "movement" in international publising and media, I expected to this to be an easy task.
But very quickly after trying to identify the resources to find these publications, it became clear that there are some serious difficulties. I won't go into details about the effects of publicing in OA or the impact factors of OA Journals, just making them visible.
Many resources and overviews focus heaviliy on journal titels and sets, instead of the actual publications.
Search opties are often limited, poor and it is not always possible to search for the publications. Search for affiliation details is dffficult or impossible.

And when you do find publications, it is not always possible to create an RSS, or even download or save records.
In platforms of publishers that offer certain Open Access packages it is not possible to identify or limit your search to specific Open Access publications.
