Dear members,

We will be implementing some changes to this group in the next few weeks. That may mean that some files will be removed if they are not directly relevant to the theme of this group "Future of Science". We don't doubt that these are fantastic articles that many members may want to read, but we feel that there are better avenues for collecting and finding these. We hope you'll be pleased with the changes, which we hope will make this group more useful and active.

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have comments, suggestions or questions.

Cheers,
Claire van den Broek

perhaps a trivial question: but has anyone in the literature contemplated the end of "manual" note-taking whether it was for field or labwork? and the implications it has for data traceability?

When typing your findings directly into a digital device, does it become more easily faked than if the raw data was in the form of notebooks?

Claire van den Broek Just a brief answer: The record created certainly has diminished traceability in the sense of having something that can or cannot be altered retroactively. However, you could remedy this to some degree by having data synced to a central location that logs it. Furthermore, you can extrapolate information and patterns now to which we did not really h...

Looking for testimonies of good and bad experience of using Open Access publishing

I am the editor of the Euroscientist magazine (euroscientist.com) and I am looking for testimonies of people who have had various experiences of Open Access, good, bad, or mixed.

I mainly would like you to share your perspective for an audience of European scientists, so that we can launch a debate on whether OA should be further refined to constitute one of the solutions of the future of publishing. Or whether you think that neither traditional publishing nor Open Access are the answer to sharing research results in the future.

Please write to editor@euroscience.org within the next week or so.

Many thanks
Sabine

How useful is LinkedIn for scientists?

I'm a recent graduate and relatively new to LinkedIn. I'm interested in learning about other LinkedIn users' experiences, particularly for those in science. Has LinkedIn been professionally valuable for you? Or just another version of Facebook?

I have posted a four question survey about the utility of LinkedIn on my website. I will compile and post the results on my site and LinkedIn as they come in. Thanks in advance to any willing to take it!

User Deleted I've connected with some of my field's (computer programming in C++ / C# & 3D Modeling/animation) leading contributors and workers, a lot of other talented people, and I've gotten three job interview requests. All this for free. LinkedIn is in my opinion probably the most valuable social network to date.
