  • sorry Steve, really confused now as your presentation has a CC licence, but for this Slideshare page you have selected

    USAGE RIGHTS
    © All Rights Reserved

    Is the Road open or closed? I am also confused about your choice of CC license. How can you talk about content being Open when you use a BY/NC/ND license. If you are using a Non-derivative license then your content is not Open.

  • 36. Open publishing: A tale of two papers<br />Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011<br />http://www.fromoldbooks.org<br />
  • 37. Open publishing: A tale of two papers<br />Notes:<br />In 2006/2007 I published 2 papers within a few months of each other. One was in a closed journal, and from submission it took 3 years to appear in print (there was a backlog of papers and ‘reviewer delays’). The other was in an open access journal and took 5 months to appear online. <br />Long delays militate against good scholarship. Open access journals are now the first choice for many academics – with open peer review and transparent processes, and with academics opening up their work for public critique, open scholarship is in the ascendency. <br />Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011<br />http://www.fromoldbooks.org<br />

  • 47. Some end notes (adapted from the Blonde Blog on poverty)<br />Poverty isn&apos;t fun and it’s notfunny. When you&apos;re in poverty, you can&apos;t even think about havingfun.All your time is spent trying to figure out how you are going to survive another day. <br />Poverty slows everything down--it&apos;s a drag on our world economy. Poverty has been slowing down creativity, and the forward movement of our society for muchtoo long.<br />Poverty holds the world out of balance. Unbalanced things are not pretty. Poverty is ugly. Even uglier are the multi-national corporations and banks who take more than their fair share to keep much of the world’s population in poverty. <br />
