Pushing scholarly #publishing toward a 100% #openaccess model. aeon.co/ideas/scholarly-publis

This Aeon article includes discussion on improving the way peer review, etc. works. The author (Tennant) says" "All of the technology and traits to build a hybridised scholarly commons infrastructure already exists. It is up to academic communities themselves to step away from their apathy and towards a fairer and more democratic system for sharing our knowledge and work."

@icaria36 I confess I lived completely oblivious to the amount of spam that "happens"... Now I'm taking much better care on my choice of email provider + accounts and services I sign up into.

Mastodon: Fedibertsora euskaraz

Fedibertsoa elkarrekin bateragarriak diren gizarte-sare federatu libreen ekosistema bat da. Hainbat zerbitzaritan eta saretan egonda ere, erabiltzaileak elkarrekin komunikatzen dira federazioari esker.

Sare guzti hauen artean hazkunde deigarriena izaten ari dena Mastodon da, Twitter-en ordezko etiko bat.


@stragu same here. Thanks for wording it!

Happy to be #movingtoGitLab for now. Yes, I know about #IPFS and other decentralised options, and the risk of simply moving to yet another centralised business, but for the moment this is probably not a good choice for me because of (1) the extra work, (2) the loss of bells and whistles that #GitLab and #GitHub add on top of Git, (3) the fact that IPFS is still alpha, and (4 ) the requirement to still use something accessible for the wider public because I teach and interact with beginners.
