        "Open Access to a High-Quality, Impartial, Point-of-Care Medical Summary Would Save Lives: Why Does It Not Exist?"

        Posted in Open Access, Open Science, Publishing on September 1st, 2015

        James Heilman has published "Open Access to a High-Quality, Impartial, Point-of-Care Medical Summary Would Save Lives: Why Does It Not Exist?" in PLOS Medicine.

        Here's an excerpt:

        Summary Points

        • Currently no open access point-of-care (POC) medical summary aimed at a professional audience exists.
        • Some nonprofit and multiple professional, for-profit POC medical summaries are frequently accessed by clinicians and policymakers.
        • Efforts to create open access POC summaries have been stymied by the difficulty of attracting high-quality contributors.
        • The open access medical publishing community can create this resource with engaged donors, crowd-sourcing, and technology.

            Research Data Management: A Primer Publication of the National Information Standards Organization

            Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on September 1st, 2015

            NISO has released Research Data Management: A Primer Publication of the National Information Standards Organization.

            Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

            The primer on Research Data Management provides an overview of how data management has changed in recent years, and outlines best practices for the collection, documentation, and preservation of research data. The importance of creating a data management plan (DMP) before beginning a research data project is emphasized. Crucial questions regarding how the data will be managed are answered ahead of time in a DMP, thus making it easier for the researcher to collect and document the data properly for future use and reuse. Creating research data that is easily reproducible and transparent is the ultimate goal, and following the guidelines in this primer can help educate researchers to ensure their data is available for others. The differences between publishing papers and publishing datasets and the citation challenges the data community are working on solving are also discussed.

                  "Dataverse 4.0: Defining Data Publishing"

                  Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Publishing on August 31st, 2015

                  Mercè Crosas has self-archived "Dataverse 4.0: Defining Data Publishing."

                  Here's an excerpt:

                  The research community needs reliable, standard ways to make the data produced by scientific research available to the community, while getting credit as data authors. As a result, a new form of scholarly publication is emerging: data publishing. Data pubishing—or making data long-term accessible, reusable and citable—is more involved than simply providing a link to a data file or posting the data to the researchers web site. In this paper, we define what is needed for proper data publishing and describe how the open-source Dataverse software helps define, enable and enhance data publishing for all.

                      In August, I continued to transform public domain photos from the late 19th century into digital oil paintings and pastel drawings using a variety of Photoshop plug-ins and Topaz Impression. Full-size images (8×10") and descriptions of the processing steps involved are available on my Flickr photostream: https://www.flickr.com/photos/charleswbaileyjr/.
