Imagine an Open Science World

If you went to the Open Source/Open Notebook session on Saturday or checked the podcast (linked in there) of it, you are probably familiar with some of the ideas revolutionizing the science publishing world.

One of the people on the forefront of thinking about these questions is Bill Hooker who just finished the third part of his trilogy guest-blogging on 3 Quarks Daily. Just in case you missed the first two installments, here are the links to all three – but take your time and check out the numerous links embedded in them:

The Future of Science is Open, Part 1: Open Access
The Future of Science is Open, Part 2: Open Science
The Future of Science is Open, Part 3: An Open Science World

    Thanks for the plug!

    The articles are too long, I now think, but they do at least link to most of the important people and resources in Open Science. (I was especially pleased to end with a description of Jean-Claude Bradley’s Open Notebook work, since first and last paragraphs are what readers mostly remember!)

    The future of science is NOT open. The American Chemical Society is working with nasty PR companies to put that to an end.
