When is a Publisher not a Publisher? Cobbling Together the Pieces to Build a Workflow Business – The Scholarly Kitchen

“Ultimately, Elsevier’s user acquisition and monetization strategy here is as sophisticated as anything we have seen in scholarly publishing to date. Open access advocates might be concerned about some of these directions, but my sense is that many of these scientists and librarians remain largely focused on trying to compete with, or at least influence, scientific publishing. Building businesses that support, and potentially monetize, researcher workflow is a very different animal.”

DOE Data Explorer

“The DOE Data Explorer (DDE) is an information tool to help you locate DOE’s collections of scientific research data and also retrieve individual datasets submitted by data centers, repositories, and other organizations within the Department. The DDE database includes collection citations prepared by the Office of Scientific and Technical Information, as well as citations for the individual, submitted datasets.

All of the collections and all of the individual datasets result from research and development funded in whole or in part by the Department of Energy. Some reflect combined funding – DOE’s combined with that from other agencies or the private sector…”

Knowen – accelerating discovery

“Knowen is an experiment in progress that is being designed to organize, preserve, and expand human knowledge – placing it in a hierarchical knowledge base (graph) that makes it readily available to learners of all backgrounds and ages.

The rate of scientific and engineering innovation is rapidly increasing. With the advent of the Internet and powerful search engines, millions of research articles are accessible within seconds from anywhere in the world. Despite this, because of the complexity of a typical journal article and the redundancy among these, it is often as difficult today as it was 50 or 100 years ago to find a particularly relevant and verified piece of knowledge….Knowen is completely free for academic and personal use. Please contact us if you are interested in a commercial license….”

Don Swanson, Undiscovered Public Knowledge (April 1986)

Abstract: Knowledge can be public, yet undiscovered, if independently created fragments are logically related but never retrieved, brought together, and interpreted. Information retrieval, although essential for assemblingn such fragments, is always problematic. The search process, like a scientific theory, can be criticized and improved, but can never be verified as capable of retrieving all information relevant to a problem or theory. This essential incompleteness of search and retrieval therefore makes possible, and plausible, the existence of undiscovered public knowledge. Three examples intended to throw light on the logic of undiscovered knowledge are constructed and analyzed. The argument is developed within the framework of a Popperian or critical approach within science and on Popper’s distinction between subjective and objective knowledge — the distinction between World 2 and World 3.
