A (perhaps slightly too) strongly worded summary of current events in scientific publishing. Everyone involved in science should at least form an opinion on this matter.

If you want to keep updated, definitely follow Peter Suber.

From Mike Taylor

"The US Research Works Act would allow publishers to line their pockets by locking publicly funded research behind paywalls....This is the moment academic publishers gave up all pretence of being on the side of scientists...."

Comment: This strongly-worded piece is accurate. The only qualification I'd make is that publishers are not monolithic. On this front, for example, some support the RWA and some don't. Those that don't, especially if they are also members <http://publishers.org/members/> of the Association of American Publishers <http://www.publishers.org/>, which lobbies for the RWA in the name of its members, should quit the AAP or publicly disavow its RWA campaign <http://goo.gl/9wTFh>.

Hopefully, this may also lead to a broader discussion about what role publishers could, or should, play in the future of scientific publishing. Their current status as copyright holder and gatekeeper, based on tradition, does not seem to make sense in modern science.

Interesting news from Denmark :)
 
Denmark mandates open access for publicly-funded research.

The new policy was adopted by the Danish Council for Independent Research, the Danish National Research Foundation, the Danish Council for Strategic Research, the Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation, and the Danish Council for Technology and Innovation.

As far as I can tell, this is the new policy:
* in Danish <http://goo.gl/Ac3Gi>
* in Google's English <http://goo.gl/bn8wk>
(If I'm wrong, I'd appreciate a correction.)

Which country is next?

#oa   #openaccess  
The politicians may be playing the waiting game, but Denmark's research has ratified a new policy that will force researchers who have received support from one of the country's five state-funded rese...

If I could have one Kickstarter wish come true this year, it would be the making of this documentary.

Even slightly interrested in cycling, Jorgen Leth and/or documentary films? Then I think this would be worth your time, and a small amount of your money. 45 hours left :)
We'll follow Jorgen Leth, director of A Sunday in Hell, during the 2012 Paris Roubaix. A grueling bike race his film helped popularize.
