PKP Conference 2011 – Final Call for Participation

Today I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference 2011 which will take place in just about one month from now.

The Third International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference will be held from September 26 – 28, 2011 at Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany, organized by the Public Knowledge Project, in partnership with Freie Universitaet Berlin and Simon Fraser University Library.


Registration is still possible and there are still a few places available.

Please note that registration will close September 19, 2011.

 

The PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference 2011 will be a place where stakeholders from the publishing community from all over the world will gather to discuss the potentials and challenges of alternative publishing models and free access to scientific knowledge. The conference will present innovations in technology developments and activities from open access initiatives from various countries and scientific disciplines. In addition, workshops provide the opportunity to learn about current developments in online publishing in a first hand and practical manner.

 

Participants coming from more than 30 countries from around the word have registered already – making this years conference a truly international gathering.

 

We are looking forward to spending three days with you in Berlin packed with talks, plenary sessions, workshops and a hackfest, and of course lively discussions among the participants.

ChemistryOpen: The First Open Access Chemical Society Journal

ChemistryOpen Editors: Haymo Ross and Karen Hindson

Wiley-VCH, part of the scientific and technical publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and ChemPubSoc Europe, an association of 16 chemical societies, have announced the launch of ChemistryOpen, the first open access chemical society journal. The societies join the Wiley Open Access publishing program.

ChemistryOpen will publish peer-reviewed primary research in all areas of chemistry, and will thus satisfy funding organisations and institutes which require that the research funded by them should be accessible to all. As an additional feature, the new journal will publish short summaries of PhD theses with a link to the full version. This Thesis Treasury will make PhD theses in chemistry readily accessible while linking them through CrossRef to all cited journal articles in the program.

The first open access articles will be posted online later this year, with the first full issue following in early 2012.

The editors, Dr Karen Hindson and Dr Haymo Ross situated in Weinheim, Germany, recently spoke with Dr. Vera Köster, editor of the ChemViews magazine about ChemistryOpen. Read the interview here.

PLoS ONE’s Media Tracking Project

Everyday we find PLoS ONE papers in the news. Whether it’s a science blogger in the United Kingdom, an online newspaper in China, or a national news channel in the United States, we see a lot of media coverage on our research articles.  In an effort to better track the coverage these papers receive, we’ve begun a Media Tracking Project.

The aim of this project is to collect all pertinent news articles from legitimate media outlets and research blogs covering PLoS ONE articles. So, how does it work? From now on, we’ll attempt to bookmark relevant news articles and blog posts about PLoS ONE articles using Diigo (a collaborative research and social content site). If you would like to see the articles we’ve collected so far, check out our library. On a weekly basis, we’ll collate these bookmarks and list the relevant media coverage in the commenting section of each research article. An example of the media coverage comment can be found on the article: Scientists Want More Children.

We recognize that – despite our best efforts to track media coverage – we will inevitably miss some (and we will not aim to exhaustively list all sources which simply re-print a standard release for any given article).  So, we would encourage you to participate as well.  If you read, write, see or hear media coverage on a PLoS ONE article, please don’t hesitate to link to it in the comments section of the paper. Our suggested format is as follows:

Title of article:

For an excellent example of  an author documenting media coverage, take a look at the article, Stalking the Fourth Domain in Metagenomic Data: Searching for, Discovering, and Interpreting Novel, Deep Branches in Marker Gene Phylogenetic Trees. Jonathan Eisen, one of the authors of this manuscript,  has meticulously posted links to media coverage in the comments section of his paper.  We appreciate his involvement and encourage authors to follow his lead.

In the meantime, we’ll still post PLoS ONE News and Blog Round-Ups of the most widely covered articles on a regular basis.
