A New Resource for librarians looking for high-quality, open-access library and information science research
…a new kind of open access overlay journal, powered by PressForward and curated by librarian-experts working in the arena of scholarly communication.
Each week, editors recruit the very best scholarly communication literature from across the Web, working with authors to make their research available, ensuring that librarians are connected to excellent research that’s relevant to their work.
Browsing through the Discover section, there are already quite a few great articles about Open Access, Academia.edu, sentiment analysis and Twitter, data science…It’s a really great list of essays and articles that go beyond interest for just librarians. The website wants to look at research and research output beyond the essay, looking to “liberate toll access or otherwise difficult to access research in all forms–articles, books, code, data sets, presentations, white papers, and more–with all the tools at our disposal.”
