I don't have supervisory experience and I'm afraid this is going to stall out my career progress. No chance of getting any in current position. Closest thing I have is teaching high school students nearly ten years ago. Ideas on how to overcome this?
Fun times yesterday: At 3 p.m. (+/- 5 minutes), power went out. Called PG&E; it had already been reported; estimated fix 6 p.m. Which changed to 8 p.m. Which changed to (gulp) 1 a.m. Finally restored at 11:56 p.m. Went out again after about three minutes for eight minutes. Restored (and stayed restored) at 12:07 a.m.
Just realised today the way we do ILL here is quite different from most libraries. Yet another insight to why sometimes our faculty staff or researchers who have experienced other systems are confused.
all agu journals are supposed to be OA after a 2 year embargo, yet MPOW can't get to a journal we have always subscribed to. Can anyone else get to this article pdf? http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi...
Sigh. Now the Beallster, in asserting Another Predatory OA Publisher, concludes that if you create an overlay journal to a repository base (in this case overlaying articles deposited in SSRN), the repository (SSRN) *is the publisher.* No point in trying to educate him; he's selectively deaf.
Do any of your people have a fountain that people throw money in? How do you deal with the money? Ours is gross and corroded and the bank won't take it, so we have buckets of useless money sitting around.
Probably not the first one to say this, but it seems as though somebody at Bentham Open would have realized that their favorite journal-naming convention, The Open [Noun-Phrase] Journal, results in some...unpleasant titles.
Some colleagues and I are working on a Massive Analysis Project (MAP) of Scopus and Web of Science. While the report will be used for internal decision-making, we think it may be of interest to others and we would like to rework it into an article. What OA journal might make a good home for such a topic?
MacroWorld publishers - legit? not legit? I don't see them or their titles available in EBSCONet, in Ulrich's, or even on Beall's List. I'm going with scam, but before I tell that to the prof. who asked … any thoughts? MacroWorld - International Publisher http://www.macroworldpub.com/
This is bizarre. Nucleic Acids Research is an OUP journal. It's "open access", with all content available to readers on the web. Authors have the choice of a CC-BY-NC license or a CC-BY license (same fees for either). But if they select the CC-BY-NC license, then OUP is the rightsholder for commercial uses. I'm not sure how I feel about this.
Anyone know of a good resource that lists scholarship opportunities for undergrad women pursuing STEM majors? Something national/international and/or that breaks down these opportunities by institution?
