Digital Media. Open Access Debate. Trends and thoughts
Filed under: Position Searching, Public Relations docs, Alternate Career Paths
Posted by: site admin @ 11:44 am

“Open access” in chemical literature has been
debated for years while chemistry seems to
lag behind other sciences in adoption, as reported
in “Open access in chemistry: information wants
to be free” by Kuras, Kahn and Vickery.

The surveyed logic is funding and journal
quality, but also the stance of the ACS and
impact of the implied “reward system.” formally
influence the rate of adoption of new publication
models.  The authors suggest continuing adoption
resulting from funding sources encouragement
and impact of Internet presence on professional
recognition for scholarly work. 

Resources and recent news

Nature posts three new open access websites.  The
news item provided good links to Science and PoS.

PubMed (biology, medicine, biochemistry) and arXiv
(physics and Math) sites are highly promoted in
a recent eBook that I am reading by David Eagleman
(Why the Net Matters).
