[ARCHIVED] Open Citations Project : Jisc
The Open Citations Project is global in scope, designed to change the face of scientific publishing. It aims to make bibliographic citation links as easy to use as Web links, and its goals are four-fold: (i) To establish, a public RDF triplestore for biomedical literature citations. (ii) To harvest the reference lists from many current and recent open access journal articles, starting with those in UK Pubmed Central, those published by the Public Library of Science and Biomed Central, those from other publishers willing for CrossRef to release their data, and articles from other Open Access repositories such as EPrints. (iii) To convert these datasets into RDF, using CiTO, the Citation Typing Ontology ( to encode the citation information. (iv) To publish these citation datasets as Open Linked Data on the Talis Connected Commons Platform under an open data license in both human- and computer-accessible formats. As such, the Open Citation Project seeks to promote citation datasets as first class information objects. The reference list from each article processed will be published as an individual named graph, with its own individual Digital Object Identifier (DOI) assigned by the relevant publisher via CrossRef or by the British Library on behalf of the DataCite Project.

The Challenge of Brand-Name Journals and OA: Interview with Stuart Taylor
The impact factor is the numerical value that people tend to put on the journal brand, but I don’t think it’s the impact factor per se in which they’re interested. Rather, it’s the pecking order, or hierarchy, of the journals.

RCUK The UK Knowledge and Research Landscape: A report on available resources
In order to support and exploit areas where the UK could have increased global comparative
advantage, we need to improve the UK’s capability to identify where existing and emerging research
excellence can be coupled with innovation strength. To do this well, links between key partners and
stakeholders need to be forged and strengthened, and we need to build a robust and powerful
evidence base which can underpin future investment decisions.

What is Docker?
Docker is the world’s leading software container platform. Developers use Docker to eliminate “works on my machine” problems when collaborating on code with co-workers. Operators use Docker to run and manage apps side-by-side in isolated containers to get better compute density. Enterprises use Docker to build agile software delivery pipelines to ship new features faster, more securely and with confidence for both Linux and Windows Server apps.

Should biomedical research be like Airbnb?
The thesis presented here is that biomedical research is based on the trusted exchange of services. That exchange would be conducted more efficiently if the trusted software platforms to exchange those services, if they exist, were more integrated. While simpler and narrower in scope than the services governing biomedical research, comparison to existing internet-based platforms, like Airbnb, can be informative.
