Open access and science – not just journal articles

Open access in science can mean much more than journal articles.  Take, for example, the Ketterson lab, Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington.  In the course of their over 30-year study on songbird biology the group has published over 100 articles.

The value of critical appraisal

This week I am wrapping up my last evidence summary for the (open access) Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Journal. I'm feeling quite nostalgic about it. I joined the evidence summary team in mid-2012 and have completed two 2-year commitments. It's been a key writing activity for most of my pre-tenure time here at UL.
