A new post on PLOS Opens: Wikimania - we need to choose the main stream over our small pool - http://blogs.plos.org/opens...
#wikimania2014 ...are very similar to the challenges of moving from content focussed rsrch publication to data focussed schol comms [2/2]
#Wikimania2014 Data Panel. Strikes me that challenges of translating success of Wikipedia to Wikidata (content is different to data) [1/2]
RT @catmacOA: In the scientific arena, we also need to enhance data , add to it and integrate it - @PLOS Elizabeth Marincola #Wikimania2014
.@dullhunk @villavelius @arfon Exactly the point. Research should be seen a piece of the puzzle of human knowledge, not something separate
Great storify from @anneliesvrede: of a tweetchat from Early Career Researchers chat on open access? https://t.co/9r4G6w4nSg
RT @DorothyR_Howard: Join + contribute to the OA-signaling project + conversation at github https://t.co/9qdVFkelBz @EvoMRI @notconfusing @wrought #Wikimania2014
#wikimania2014 is all about what can be done when data, info & knowledge is accessible. Schol Comms can learn a lot here (and vice versa)
RT @LouWoodley: What about critical mass for WikiProjects? Is adding editors or adding contributions more important for community growth? #wikimania2014
As at @cgutteridge reminds us, there are some good reasons to have #NoNewLicenses https://t.co/Mc51fpYEmJ
.@ElliotHarmon I agree! Take a look at #WebWeWantFest for an example of what we should be focussing on! cc @ernestopriego
RT @mweller: @CameronNeylon I'd missed this, it's such an academic response "let's create a slightly different version", like attempts at twitter for HE
The idea "CC licenses were not designed with scholarly literature in mind" is just plain wrong. [1/2] #NoNewLicenses
Here is @STMAssoc response - http://www.stm-assoc.org/2014_08... - There's a core problem with this statement in that it propagates a myth #NoNewLicenses
...and relevant to @WikimaniaLondon #wikimania2014 from the Wikimedia Foundation https://t.co/qs12vC4ujg #NoNewLicenses
RT @IanMulvany: big message from second session at Wikimania open scholarship: self archive FTW!!
RT @SPARC_NA: SPARC blog on why we joined global call for #NoNewLicenses - http://sparc.arl.org/blog...
Note that #NoNewLicenses coalition signatories includes publishers with experience of 100,000s of #openaccess papers http://www.plos.org/global-...
58 organisations call on @STMAssoc to withdraw model licenses & focus on working within @creativecommons framework http://www.plos.org/global-...
Let's focus on making research work as well as it can with the rest of the world's knowledge http://blogs.plos.org/opens... #nonewlicenses
I think today could be be described as...trying...tomorrow may be better...
Sorry. We still love you over here! - RepoRat
You are quite correct. I can't read a program... RT @jukesie: @CameronNeylon pretty sure she is speaking Friday :)
Heading up to London for @WikimaniaLondon later today. There will be a big presence from @PLOS including a keynote from our CEO on Sat eve
RT @mrjohnc: I have some comp tickets available for @WikimaniaLondon (8-10th Aug) for those working in the open space who are not able to come otherwise
.@JordanRaff Umm that would be because IF is a proprietary metric created by a priv company based on propr. data, available by subscription?
Woah, ok that's a big divide on EU copyright reform. Via @glynmoody Chasm Between Views Of Public And Publishers - https://www.techdirt.com/article...
