Earlier today I went to UNC to talk about Science On The Web in Javed Mostafa’s graduate course on Enabling Usability of Cyberinfrastructures for Learning, Inquiry, and Discovery. I showed and talked about the following sites:
The rapidly growing List of Open Access journals and how the recent NIH law and Harvard vote are pushing publishing inexorably towards the OA model.
PLoS, Open Access, the TOPAZ platform for a new breed of journals like PLoS ONE (and a couple of examples of user activity on ONE papers), as an example of the leader of OA publishing (and also the story of how I got to work there).
Nature Precedings, and comparison to arXiv, wikis and blogs.
Jean-Claude Bradley’s open notebook chemistry blog and wiki (including a Master’s thesis being written there) and how they used Second Life to do an experiment.
Rosie Redfield’s Vancouver lab with open notebook blogs, and a little about age/generation effect on the adoption of Science 2.0, and about being a “pioneer”.
Science video, in particular SciVee and JoVE as the leaders and how important they are.
Recent advances in science blogging.
My article on the future of the scientific paper – we discussed the SF-like ideas about the future of science communication and the way science will be done, as well as the role of Information Scientists in such an ecosystem.
I did not have time to touch on blog carnivals – a kind of bottom-up, community driven online magazines.
It was fun for me – I hope it was as fun (and useful) to the students as well.
