Letter on open citations
We urge all publishers who have not yet opened their reference lists to do so now. This includes the American Chemical Society, Elsevier, IEEE, and Wolters Kluwer Health. By far the largest number of closed references can be found in journals published by Elsevier: of the approximately half a billion closed references stored in Crossref, 65% are from Elsevier journals. Opening these references would place the proportion of open references at nearly 83%.

Welland violated Municipal Act: Ombudsman | Welland Tribune
It said the mayor suggested the vote was not secret, as each councillor’s name was written on their ballot. But, it added, the ballots were tallied in secret, though councillors could have asked for the results to be read aloud.

Dube found council voted by secret ballot and said that violated the city’s procedural bylaw and Ontario Municipal Act. Under the act, ballot and secret votes are prohibited and considered of no effect.

“Consideration of whether council’s vote by ballot during the closed session was of no force or effect is outside the scope of my role as closed-meeting investigator, and council did confirm its choice of councillor in open session. Under the circumstances, I am not making a specific finding relating to this issue,” he wrote in the report.

He also said the selection of a replacement councillor should not have taken place in closed session under the personal matters exception of law, as no personal information about the proposed candidates was discussed.
