Digital Media. Growing Use of Internet Publishing

One of the crucial measures of developing research programs
is keeping in touch with new ideas and combinations with
new equipment and theories.  

.
Several career paths place credibility of achievement on
publications [publications in peer reviewed publications]. 
How this is measured with Internet publications is not patently 
obvious or at least consistent from one organization to another.
.
Nonetheless several sources of online publications are appearing.
ChemRN provides global access and outlet to classified topic
areas.
.
ChemRxiv is a Figshare product offers rapidly transmitted
of one-page preprints with a promise of tools to detect plagiarism.
[open API or via OAI-PMH].
.
This blog articulated that scientific publishing was going
to evolve from the commercial and professional society
journal paradigm.  It will be important that strong professional
ethics are articulated in this evolving medium
and there is
a viable enforcement mechanism for violations and dealing
with grey-area issues.

    From Carol Bertozzi, ACS Central Science:

    Another development we are watching this fall from the ACS
    is the much-anticipated chemistry preprint server, ChemRxiv.

    Having launched in August, the preprint server has already
    attracted more than seventy preprints–including one from
    my own lab.

    We at ACS Central Science look forward to watching
    ChemRxiv grow into another valuable platform for open
    science and the development of chemistry research.
