I learned something wonderful today.

The @zotero citation manager automatically alerts you if you cite or have a paper in your database that has been retracted.

Thanks @kdund for following this up!

Very important tool as the numbers of research papers retracted are increasing over time (it seems).

Collaborators of Francesca Gino (accused of fraud and now suing Harvard) have been working together to verify findings.

"The mass self-auditing effort [...] has already initiated the retraction of at least one paper that Gino collected data for,"

“Like all scholars, I am interested in the truth. But auditing only my papers actively ignores a deeper reflection for the field,” - Gino responded

Putting their money where their mouth is, the EU decides to make academic publishing open source:
"utilizing existing open-source software has its own advantages and disadvantages. Although some risks are associated with this approach, our research has identified a few mature existing solutions that could be further developed to support the future ORE platform."

Kudos to the (@thecrick) for its policy on and ,

In addition to supporting , content , and reforms, it applies licenses to all research carried out at the institute.

How can advocacy for a search engine monopoly be reduced (by practical editorial changes) in the English-language ?

This is a fundamental meta-academic question (reviews of knowledge) for which practical participation - with evidence and arguments - would be better than postmodernist gobbledegook or neoliberal empty rhetoric.

New study shows that "academic researchers [are] demoralised by a culture that disincentivises sharing and collaboration, encourages questionable research practices, and increases the risk of bias."

"...writing research under the pressure to find 'impactful' results [make me feel] like 'I'm a novel writer instead of a researcher'" explains one interviewee.

A whistleblower has revealed a prolific paper mill:

The paper mill proposes "special issues to hundreds of journals from major publishers. The whistleblower estimates that around 5% of the journals accepted these proposals. Once in control of these specials, [the paper mill] team included fraudulent or irrelevant studies that cited previous papers on the same topic." This artificially inflates paper mill affiliated authors' citations.

🔔 Update 🔔 Curious about my tech tools and workflow? I've updated and greatly expanded the annotated list of favorite open source tools on my website:

Includes both general tools (browser, e-mail, OS, editor) and data science specific tools (R, R packages, reproducible science).

German translation coming soon!

Where can I find a list of #academic #journals with #diamondopenaccess (#psychology #health #medicine ) model [except DOAJ]?

e.g., Clinical Psychology in Europe

In France we have a law since 2016 that brings down the embargo period for open publishing down to 6 months (or 12 for social sciences) no matter what you signed.

Also, the CNRS is pushing for everyone to publish the preprint version in CC-BY before they give up your copyright.

Finally you need to publish on HAL if you want your papers to count towards your annual report.

Is there any other laws / initiative like this on other countries?

@solalnathan @academicchatter Yes.

This is described in legal terms as 'secondary publishing rights'.

In addition to France, they have them in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Spain & Italy.

See the table at the end of this PDF:

I do wish UK-based scholars had secondary publishing rights! #OpenScience
