Sites of interest

Chemistry/Biology BLC CoI Groups

Information Page

on mutual interests of Scholarly Communication and Journal information

Here is a list of important links that our group should know about. 

Important Links:

Peter Suber's Open Access Web Site (from several)

Scholarly journal prices: selected trends and comparisons. (from Jim Craig, UMASSA)

Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) (from several)

MIT Scholarly Communication Page (From Erja K.)

LOCKSS home page (from Barbara Preece)

ACS Broadens Article Access (from Marion off the ChemInfo list)

PubMedCentral  access to free journals and articles in the life sciences.  NIH researchers are required to post reports and articles here, as of April 8, 2008. (posted by Marion, after the Scholarly Communications workshop)

Dr. Mark McCabe, formerly of US Dept. of Justice, now Economics faculty at Georgia Tech. While at the DOJ, he investigated the anti-competitive nature of journal publishing and felt that there was sufficient evidence to indicate an antitrust violation. Scroll down his page to papers for some interesting reading. (from Lois Widmer, Brandeis)

For information on open access, Georgia State University Library's News Blog is the best. One of the subjects listed there is Issues on Scholarly Communication, and it allows RSS -- highly recommended. Also Nature's "access to literature: debate continues" have interesting discussions sometimes, but it doesn't have new stuff every day. I have it included in my feeds. Gary Price's ResouceShelf covers all topics related to the Library work, and I find it particularly helpful. (from Irene Ke, NE)

From: ChemInfo discussion list: A paper has been published giving evidence that "Articles freely available online are more highly cited." (from Marion Muskiewicz, UMASS Lowell)
