Thanks to Kalev Leetaru, a Yahoo! Fellow in Residence at Georgetown University, you can now head over to a new collection at Flickr and search through an archive of 2.6 million public domain images, all extracted from books, magazines and newspapers published over a 500 year period.

A very entertaining post on how to capture the stream of DOI citations across Wikipedias:
http://crosstech.crossref.org/2015/03/real-time-stream-of-dois-being-cited-in-the-wikipedia.html

For the live tracker, see
http://events.labs.crossref.org/events/types/WikipediaCitation
TL;DR. Watch a real-time stream of DOIs being cited (and “un-cited!” ) in Wikipedia articles across the world: http://goo.gl/0AknMJ. Background. For years we've known that the Wikipedia was a major referrer of CrossRef DOIs and about a year ago we confirmed that, in fact, the Wikipedia is the ...

Do you run a database or other scholarly resource? Are wikipedia.org or wikimedia.org or wikidata.org among your top referrers? If so, please let me know. Thanks!
Background: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Wikimedia_referrer_policy
This page in a nutshell: Since we started switching to HTTPS and an increasing portion of inbound traffic happens over SSL, Wikimedia sites stopped advertising themselves as sources of referred traffic to external sites. While this is a literal implication of HTTPS, it means that Wikimedia's ...

A remarkable photo has captured a weasel on a woodpecker's back as the bird flies through the air. The photographer, Martin Le-May from Essex, said he "feared the worst" for the green bird after hearing "distressed squawking" during its struggle with the mammal at Hornchurch Country Park.

Story
Tagline
Science with a public version history
Introduction
Having studied biophysics and some related subjects, I gained experimental and theoretical experience in the study of biological systems at most levels of organisation, using a range of physicochemical methods. Over the last years, I have focused on the application of Magnetic Resonance techniques to the study of biological phenomena like cell division, drug uptake, embryogenesis, fossilisation, insect hibernation, music perception and brain morphometry. I strive to do my research and teaching in the open as far as possible, and I have a strong interest in improving scholarly communication, particularly by way of wikis and blogs.
