Summon users -- have you made decisions about keeping, paying for, or killing Flow yet? We've recommended we turn off Flow, until they develop RIS export functionality. Just curious if others have been making like decisions
Spoke to someone who told me they systematically upload their school's output to ssrn who asked me why they should change (or in addition) to uploading to our institutional repository . That is a really good question..... I am thinking there is no reason?
crap on a banana. Looks like DoD will be using DoE's PAGES and will initially use an instance on DoE servers. Looks like DTIC will have the authors accepted manuscripts available (not just as a link or just in a dark archive) but those will only be available to registered users. Sorry - can't provide copy of where I read this :(
Looking for a way to identify big/important conferences that mpow isn't already attending. Like I know sfn is a big conference and there are always news reports and press releases about it. AAAS is smaller, but there are some... is there a way or an altmetrics service maybe where I can find conferences that are covered a lot or are big?
My ideal day these days: Wake up at 8. Poke around on internet & drink iced coffee. Go running. Poke around on internet while eating large arugula salad and drinking seltzer. Work on interesting research project (without concrete deadline) while random shows/movies are playing on tv....
Work signed me up and paid for a Data Management online course (good) while I'm not on the clock (not so good) but I've wanted to bone up on Data Management options for a while (so, overall: good). anyone got a pile of data they want help making a plan for? (it's an assignemnt, I would get credit for helping you)
Got tailed by neighborhood security for taking phone pics (from the sidewalk!) of some of the crazy mansions. Lol, dude, don't put crazy mansions in the middle of Brooklyn then. Sorry I'm reusing an IKEA bag and wearing sneakers with no socks.
Skitch linked to my 2007 blogspot blog post on weeding saying it was "wonderful" - Jill O'N, btw. No need to click through to Skitch, but kinda cool she thinks the post is wonderful. If only she had linked to Scientopia :(
Another reportorial inquiry related to my "research" projects on OA. We'll see what this leads to, if anything. (As background, I am now informed that J. Beall does not read what I write. This does not surprise me.)
I've been a busy bee and haven't been lurking here as much as usual. Has this "postdoc free access program" from Elsevier been discussed yet? http://www.elsevier.com/journal.... Jobless PhDs can apply for free access to ScienceDirect materials "in their field" for 6 months. Hmm.
Am I wrong to feel irritable when a free service, where I was encouraged to sign up, says it's going to charge (I've never really used it)--and the site offers no way to say "Remove my account"? (I've sent support email. Clearly, they won't/can't actually charge me, but I don't care for the Second Life "Hotel California" model.)
