“arXiv is a highly valued tool known primarily through its digital presence. However, the use of arXiv’s name by other services has led to confusion. And despite decades of reliable service, arXiv’s inconsistent visuals and voice have projected an air of neglect. This jeopardizes our ability to raise funds for critical improvements….”
“In October, arXiv released a new feature empowering arXiv authors to link their Machine Learning articles to associated code. Developed in an arXivLabs collaboration with Papers with Code, the tool was met with great enthusiasm from arXiv’s ML community.
Now, we’re expanding the capability beyond Machine Learning to arXiv papers in every category. And, to better align with our arXiv communities, PwC is launching new sites in computer science, physics, mathematics, astronomy and statistics to help researchers explore code in these fields….”
“Today we are launching new sites for computer science, physics, mathematics, astronomy and statistics. Partnering with arXiv, you can use these sites to sync code to show on arXiv paper pages. These sites are live today, and the code tab is now enabled for arXiv papers from all fields! Explore (and add code to) our new portal here: https://portal.paperswithcode.com
As a result of this expansion, we are now tracking artifacts for over 600k research papers. This is just the beginning, and we are deepening our coverage in the weeks and months ahead. We hope our efforts increase code availability for all fields of science — making it a research norm — so the entire research community can progress more quickly together!…”
“Today, arXivLabs launched a new Code tab, a shortcut linking Machine Learning articles with their associated code. arXivLabs provides a conduit for collaboration that invites community participation while allowing arXiv developers to focus on core services. This Code feature was developed by Papers with Code, a free resource for researchers and practitioners to find and follow the latest Machine Learning papers and code.
When a reader activates the Code tool on the arXiv abstract record page, the author’s implementation of the code will be displayed in the tab, if available, as well as links to any community implementations. This instant access allows researchers to use and build upon the work quickly and easily, increasing code accessibility and accelerating the speed of research….”
“When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, researchers across disciplines and around the world rushed to study the virus, the disease, transmission, and treatment. Open access research sharing platforms, also known as preprint servers, provided the ideal format for scientists to share their findings quickly with their peers.
At this online event, open access leaders will discuss the pandemic’s impact on these research sharing resources. This crisis has revealed the importance of open access and rapid distribution of results. At the same time, it has uncovered challenges faced by this form of scholarly communication, and the strength of the community when developing innovative solutions….”
“we believe that the mathematical community could and should engage into the creation of a line of arXiv overlay journals, covering the various areas of Mathematics, and publishing papers of the highest quality. We are thus launching, with the support of a group of colleagues who have accepted our invitation to serve as editors, an arXiv overlay journal in Mathematical Analysis, called Ars Inveniendi Analytica. This journal will benefit from the financial support of the University of Texas Libraries, and has been assisted in these initial stages by the Harvard Library, a member of the Confederation of Open Access Repositories….”
