I just started to get MDPI-style "invitations" to create special issues in research fields I have nothing to do with for some Elsevier run journals. Elsevier still publishes well respected journals in my field, but I guess any future request from them is going to hit my spam folder and go unread. Their loss. #AcademicChatter #Elsevier #OpenAccess
An interesting idea by Per Pippin Aspaas, of a commitment to fund smaller scholars-led diamond OA publications by providing a certain amount of funds based on expected # of articles to be published. The figure he uses (€1000) will be too low for many publications because he doesn’t adequately wrestle w/ who’s in a position to “live for their [editorial] work, not off their work,” & the declining working conditions of those in these positions.
“Open” doesn’t mean simply “available.” Just like Open Access research articles, truly Open Datasets are accessible, shareable, and reusable without restriction. But, importantly, Open is just a type of license. Data sharing doesn’t work in practice unless datasets also meet accepted standards for findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability—better known as FAIR.
Combining conventional and technological taxonomic approaches gives more accurate results in identifying species:
"With this study, we have conclusively shown that ongoing debates on the role of trained taxonomists versus automated identification of insects are missing the point, since technologies are needed to augment human capacity, but are hardly capable of replacing human experts"

“Multiple Regression Is Not Multiple Regressions: The Meaning of Multiple Regression and the Non-Problem of Collinearity” by Michael B. Morrissey and Graeme D. Ruxton (2018) is the 2nd most cited.

Big day for the US-based #OpenScience , #dataSharing #openAccess crowd: NSF released its new policies today: https://nsf-gov-resources.nsf.gov/2023-06/NSF23104.pdf (ht @petersuber ). Here's a quick thread on the #researchData component of it.
- New policy starting 2025
- All data underlying pubs must be shared
- DMPs are now DMSPs as for NIH
- Focus on sharing via domain repositories if possible
- They'll look into better compliance monitoring
The US National Science Foundation (#NSF) just released the draft update to its #OpenAccess policy, as requested by the #Biden #OSTP (#NelsonMemo).
I'm digesting it now but wanted it to share first.
Tho released today, it's dated Feb 23, 2023.
ASA opposing #OpenAccess is wrong but also stupid. It has done nothing to affect policy, has embarrassed all sociologists, and just delayed constructive, necessary work to adapt to the inevitable reality. Which has arrived.
I recall that one or more countries in Europe has a legal framework that allows all academic-produced scholarship to be published #openaccess, regardless of publisher contracts I think? Please link me to some details so I can mention the idea to some Australian authorities!
This from #NSF is huge; "will require NSF awardees to report journal articles... and make this content freely accessible through NSF-PAR WITH NO EMBARGO... Submitting either the publisher's version of record OR the author's approved manuscript to NSF-PAR will satisfy the public access requirement." https://nsf-gov-resources.nsf.gov/2023-06/NSF23104.pdf?VersionId=cSTD31SSPUEkM_Vm25HSlgZBDeiPvzdQ

More on the #OpenAccess citation advantage (#OACA).
"Articles under the hybrid gold modality are cited on average twice as much as those in the gold modality, regardless of funding…Funded articles generally obtain 50% more citations than unfunded ones within the same publication modality. Open access #repositories significantly increase citations, particularly for articles w/o funding…Articles in OA repositories receive 50% more citations than paywalled ones."
BIG preprint just dropped:
"Wikipedia and open access"
"We find that open-access articles are extensively and increasingly more cited in Wikipedia. What is more, they show a 15% higher likelihood of being cited in Wikipedia when compared to closed-access articles, after controlling for confounding factors. This open-access citation effect is particularly strong for articles with low citation counts, including recently published ones."
🎉 I am exited to learn that my article on command has found its way onto the popular articles list with the Scandinavian Journal of Military Studies. It great to know that it is read while I am working to finish the rest of the #PhD thesis. It’s free #OA / #OpenAccess here: https://sjms.nu/articles/10.31374/sjms.146 #phdlife

Update. I should add that he contacted me a few years ago because he was interested in #OpenAccess to research. Unfortunately it does him very little good because the prison gives him very little time and freedom online. Even when I send him URLs to OA pieces in his areas of interest, the prison staff deletes them before he sees them.
Update. Is anyone making a public list of those #textbooks? That would benefit the whole country.
It seems to me that such a list could satisfy the @wikipedia #NPOV. "Here are the revised, #FL-approved books" and either "no opinion on whether the revisions were a good idea" or "here is the controversy". But even if Wikipedia would reject it, there are many other ways to make a #crowdsourced #openaccess list.

Natural variablility has been a traditional climate change refugium for climate change deniers.
Meanwhile, researchers conducting legitimate investigations of natural variability must first remove what has become an obvious signature of climate change.
Here's an example of how researchers can separate nature from "nuture."
