Omar Khayyam was maybe the original jack of all trades. Living in Persia at the turn of the second millennium, he was a mechanic, geographer, musician, astronomer, poet, philosopher and most notably, a mathematician who laid the foundational principles of algebra. Today’s doodle in the Middle East and North Africa celebrates Omar’s mathematical legacy.

My letter to an Elsevier journal

I just declined to referee a paper for an Elsevier journal. Here's the letter I sent to the editor.

Thanks for thinking of me. I'm sorry to say that I must decline.

I have signed the "CostOfKnowledge" pledge not to referee for Elsevier.
http://thecostofknowledge.com/

But that statement is not as specific as I wish to be. I will not referee for Elsevier as long as it opposes the Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA) and university policies to assure open access to their research output.

For more details on FRPAA, see the page at the Harvard Open Access Project.

For more on Elsevier's opposition to FRPAA, see the March 5 open letter it signed with a group of other publishers.

For more on Elsevier's opposition to university OA mandates, see Elsevier's own article posting policies ("Therefore, deposit in, or posting to, subject-oriented or centralized repositories..., or institutional repositories with systematic posting mandates is permitted only under specific agreements between Elsevier and the repository, agency or institution....")
http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/authorsview.authors/postingpolicy

I don't want to hurt the [journal] or the authors of this submission. But I will not donate my time and labor to a publisher working against the interests of research and researchers.

Please feel free to share this email with any of your colleagues at [journal] and Elsevier.

Best,
Peter

Evolución de la "carrera armamentista". No se puede luchar contra la libre distribución de la información,
A small group of coders (claiming they belong to Anonymous) have designed AnonTune -- a new social music platform to share music:

"...designed to pull songs from third-party sources like YouTube and let anonymous users put them into playlists and share them — while keeping the service from being shut down by music industry lawsuits..."

Will it change the face of sharing #music ?
