Will any journalist *ever* report on Gold & Green OA without stating as simple fact that the Gold model requires article processing fees (or "author pays")? I just commented on an LJ article (one with some York professor suggesting that libraries may be irrelevant once OA goes gold)...with the usual flatly incorrect "gold OA means author fees."
Does anyone know about DeGryter: world biographical information system? we have it. i search it... not not sure what to do with the results. The help says something like look for an indicator if we have e access to fiches (??) but i haven't found a record with any such indicator. anyone familiar? TIA

just successfully submitted my r assignments for this week... and then looked at the clock.... holy shit... this is why i'm not a programmer... but self efficacy is at a high... help on the forums was distinctly unhelpful so found my own solutions using google and trial and error... not that anyone cares :)
Gov't call for proposals has a requirement that proposer have an h-index over 18 (or... ). topic is Psychology. our psychologists think that's pretty rare. A way to search for psychology and sort by h-index? researcher id and scopus don't appear to have a way
Some mysterious avian over on Twitter raised (indirectly) a point that bothers me: Do libraries value anything they haven't paid for? (E.g., do libraries link to OA journals? But there are other examples.) Unfortunately, I think I know the general answers.
