Review: PeerJ Computer Science

R

Given the general appreciation forx my small series of author-based reviews of academic journals, I will now report my experience with PeerJ Computer Science. PeerJ Computer Science is the second journal launched by the academic publisher of the PeerJ journal, which is called PeerJ, Inc. It was launched recently. The first articles appeared on the 26th of June. PeerJ Computer Science shares...

Opening up your science – including computer science

O

In two days, I will give a 1-hour talk about open science at the University of Oulu, Finland. For this very special occasion, I built a monster presentation about open science principles in computer science. However, it is general enough for all disciplines. Feel free to reuse it.

Announcing Altmetric support at The Winnower

A

As part of my commitment to make The Winnower a (even more) better place to publish scientific results and discussions, I am proud to announce that each archived article at The Winnower now features Altmetric stats. Josh posted a nice article explaining why Altmetric is an important feature to foster scientific discussion. I suggest you to read it. The most important point to be echoed here is...

Joining The Winnower

J

I am proud to join The Winnower, a revolutionary open science project, as Web software engineer and advisor. The Winnower is an innovative open science publishing platform-i.e., an academic journal-that employs open post-publication peer review. The platform aims to revolutionize how science is communicated by breaking down the barriers to scientific communication. While its founder Josh...

Review: PeerJ

R

Similarly to what I did for the Journal of Open Research Software, I keep following some proposals to write consumer reports of academic journals. It is the turn of PeerJ. PeerJ is an open access peer-reviewed journal in the areas of Biological, Medical and Health sciences. While it appears to be out of scope for a researcher in software engineering as I am, it accepts submissions from other...

Kickstarting the OKF Open Science group for Italy

K

I received the honors (and the responsibilities) to kickstart the Italian chapter for the Open Knowledge Foundation Open science working group. I am so happy that I have not been alone since the beginning. Together with two OKF Italia founding members (my old friend Maurizio Napolitano and Francesca de Chiara) and two first open scientist to join (Alessandro Sarretta and Angelo Varlotta), I aim...

rchiveit v1.2.0 – now with permalinks and UTF-8 encoding

r

I am pleased to announce the availability of rchiveit v1.2.0. This version features a major refactoring of the codebase and two important features: Permalinks for journals! You can actually bookmark the entries now. Try to see Nature entry UTF-8 was forced for SHERPA/RoMEO XML. This means that words like Educa��o will now be displayed correctly. The version is already live at . If you visited...

W

Tomorrow I will deliver a presentation at my Faculty. The topic is “self-archiving” research articles, or green Open Access. Below is the description of the workshop. At the end of this post, I share the slides of the workshop. Workshop on self-archiving Computer Science studies SPEAKER: Daniel Graziotin, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano TITLE: What is self-archiving and why should I...

Announcing rchive.it

A

I am glad to announce the public availability of rchiveit, a Web application with the aim to quickly deliver the answer to the question What am I allowed to do with my scientific paper? Three days ago, I played with Bootstrap for the first time. Yes, I have background in Web Engineering but I have never played with Bootstrap before. However, in addition to play around with some CSS and...

Review: Journal of Open Research Software

R

Update 2014-o6-20: I revised this blog post, and I published it as a journal article in The Winnower. Cite it as D. Graziotin,  “An author-based review of the Journal of Open Research Software”, The Winnower, 2014. DOI: 10.15200/winn.140326.62772. Many questions arise while browsing an unknown, yet promising journal website. How will the editorial process work? Will the submission be acknowledged...
