Happy birthday from a complete total stranger!

Slightly ironic to state so prominently that "quality papers do not have to be paid for" – paid by the readers, sure :) #openaccess   #oa  
Nature Communications has announced it will go open access only from 20 October in a bid to show the world that quality papers do not have to be paid for

"New leaked emails showing the comments of referees for Science and Nature provide additional insight into the saga of the STAP papers, which Nature published in January and retracted in July."

Excellent viewpoint. #peerreview
If so, the current funding system shares much of the blame.

+Timo Hannay writing for Wired.
Modern science seems to have data coming out of its ears. From genome sequencing machines capable of reading a human’s chromosomal DNA (about 1.5 gigabytes of data) in half an hour to particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (which generates close to 100 terabytes of data a day), researchers are awash with…

Sounds bad.
 
 'Frontiers in Public Health, an actual, peer-reviewed journal, has published a paper that is straight-out, unvarnished, HIV denial. Full stop. This journal is part of the “Frontiers in” series, that many readers will probably be familiar with.

'So how in the world did this paper make it into a peer-reviewed journal with the stamp of approval of the Frontiers line and backing of Nature Publishing Group?'

Any upvotes are more than welcome... and do read the blog post itself! :)

Unsurprising.
Financial woes are marring researchers' enjoyment of their work.

Our latest article with +Jani Kotakoski is now out in Physical Review Letters, as #CCBY   #openaccess :
https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.115501

Do please also see this blog post where I try to explain the research for as general an audience as possible. It also includes a video abstract where I describe the study, which I think turned out okay – although I wish they had told me to wipe my forehead occasionally when shooting it :p

The post also contains a description of getting the research published in a prestigious journal, and a side note mea culpa directed at the open access community for the use of #hybridOA .
This post is a greatly expanded adaptation of a press release I wrote to publicize our recent work appearing in Physical Review Letters.

That's for sure true.

What would be very interesting to see is if the FWF could obtain some high quality data on impact metrics comparisons between OA vs. non-OA articles, or a rise in impact overall when the transition proceeds.

If the FWF could show that the money they invest in these open access programs yields tangible benefits for their authors and Austrian science in general, I think many people would consider the price to be worth it.

Of course, unambiguous data might not be so easy to obtain in practice...

Restrictive copyright licenses and expensive submission fees have led to a significant number of scientists to criticise Science Advances, a new journal due to launch next year, for failing to live up to its open access principles.
