So I've finally gotten around to trying out Google Reader alternatives, and I'm digging The Old Reader pretty well but it doesn't look like I can combine feeds to make a new feed to export. I don't think Feedly does that either. Do any other readers do this one very nice thing?
Oh good. Based on his most recent comment on a SK post (where Rick A., as usual, misrepresents OA publishing), Harnad's now comfortable slamming gold OA journals as part of his "all OA should be green OA" tactics. Hell, maybe he should be writing for SK, since he seems to be an Elsevier fan.
If I was asked to co-chair the Invited Papers track at ACRL 2015 and was asked for recommendations of who might be a good other co-chair, who should I suggest from your perspective? I'm thinking someone working in metadata, digital publishing, etc. to bring a perspective different than mine.
Dear Vendors, Giving me the hard sell and telling me that we must not be using it right when I would like to cancel a subscription to your product does not endear you to me for future sales. No love, ~C
I'm setting up a summer project and it suddenly occurred to me - maybe someone already did this. I want to compile lists of big-name journals in disciplines we teach and what the OA policy is for each (preprint, postprint, PDF, noway nowhow, unknown). Has anyone already compiled this?
Q for the hive brain: I have a recollection of a journal that was OA, was purchased and taken closed. The content remained available via PMC but was not linked from the publisher site which now appeared as a subscription journal...anyone point me in that direction?
