Bradley SLA Talk on Open Melting Point Collections

submitted by: jcbradley
Jean-Claude Bradley presented at a panel on New Forms of Scholarly Communication in Science at the Special Libraries Association meeting on June 15, 2011. The talk covered the role of trust in science, with a focus on the validation of melting point data. Where the literature was unable to reconcile measurements, Open Notebook Science was used to clarify. The collection of an Open Dataset of melting point measurements for 20,000 compounds was described as well as ongoing curation efforts...

OpenSciNY Open Notebook Science Talk

submitted by: jcbradley
On May 14, 2010 Jean-Claude Bradley presented on Open Notebook Science at the OpenSciNY conference at the New York University Library. He introduced the topic by telling a few stories about how new forms of communication are affecting how we think about concepts like "scientific precedent", "peer review", "scientific publishing" and "scientific scholarship". At the end he spoke about archiving Open Notebook Science projects culminating in the publication of the Reaction Attempts and ONS...

Peer Review and Science2.0

submitted by: jcbradley
Jean-Claude Bradley presents on "Peer Review and Science2.0: blogs, wikis and social networking sites" as a guest lecturer for the “Peer Review Culture in Scholarly Publication and Grantmaking” course at Drexel University. The main thrust of the presentation is that peer review alone is not capable of coping with the increasing flood of scientific information being generated and shared. Arguments are made to show that providing sufficient proof for scientific findings does scale and...

The All-In Publication Policy

submitted by: bartneck
The productivity of scientists and the quality of their papers differ enormously. Still, all papers written get published eventually and the impact factor of the publication channel is not correlated to the citations that individual papers receive. Hence it does not matter where to publish papers. Based on these two conjectures, I conclude that all papers should be published. The review process should focus on feedback that helps authors to improve their manuscripts. But we should no longer...
