What does “Open Access” to information mean? It includes not only free but also the immediate online access to the results of scholarly research as well as the right to use and re-use those results. Encouraged by the Open Access initiative, the successful movement has direct and widespread implications for academia, science, industry, and for society as a whole since.

From the 20th to the 26th October, the scientific community celebrates the increasing success of the Open Access movement with promoting events. We take that as a welcome occasion to make you aware of Orbilu – a major contribution to the Open Access movement in Luxembourg.

Orbilu is the portal of the University of Luxembourg to make the scientific publications of its researches accessible online for everyone and for free. The University of Luxembourg takes part in the Open Access movement with Orbilu since 2013.

By now, Orbilu contains about 8000 scientific publications.

Medal Nobel PrizeThe Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for 2014 to Jean Tirole “for his analysis of market power and regulation”.

Jean Tirole is one of the most influential economists of our time. He has made important theoretical research contributions in a number of areas, but most of all he has clarified how to understand and regulate industries with a few powerful firms.

Many industries are dominated by a small number of large firms or a single monopoly. Left unregulated, such markets often produce socially undesirable results – prices higher than those motivated by costs, or unproductive firms that survive by blocking the entry of new and more productive ones.

From the mid-1980s and onwards, Jean Tirole has breathed new life into research on such market failures. His analysis of firms with market power provides a unified theory with a strong bearing on central policy questions: how should the government deal with mergers or cartels, and how should it regulate monopolies? (Press Release Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences)

Some of Jean Tirole’s books are now available online via findit.lu and a-z.lu:

Medal Nobel PrizeLe prix Nobel de littérature pour l’année 2014 est attribué à l’écrivain français Patrick Modiano « pour cet art de la mémoire avec lequel il a fait surgir les destins les plus insaisissables et découvrir le monde vécu sous l’Occupation ».
(Communiqué de presse de l’Académie suédoise)

« Né en 1945, Modiano a publié son premier roman, La Place de l’étoile, en 1968, et reçu dix ans plus tard le prix Goncourt pour Rue des boutiques obscures. En 1996, ce sera le Grand Prix national des lettres pour l’ensemble de son œuvre. Et maintenant, le Nobel pour définitivement consacrer une carrière littéraire d’une trentaine de romans qui ont raconté le Paris de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. » (Le Monde)

Ebooks sur Patrick Modiano sont maintenant disponibles via findit.lu et a-z.lu.

Header Nature Scientifc Data

Everybody is talking about data. Experimental scientists live and breathe data. Theorists are challenged by data. Funders are wondering how to make the data produced with their support more accessible without stretching their budgets. Research communities are seeking new data repositories, and standards to support them. And scientific publishers are wondering how to host data and provide quality control.

Scientific Data is a new journal, launched by Nature’s publishers in May 2014 that will help to address some of these challenge. It’s an open-access, online-only publication for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets, and exists to help researchers to publish, discover and reuse research data.

Scientific Data primarily publishes Data Descriptors, a new type of scientific publication designed to promote an in-depth understanding of research datasets. Data Descriptors combine traditional scientific article content with structured information curated in-house, and are devised to maximize data reuse and enable searching, linking and data-mining.
Data Descriptors include detailed descriptions of the methods used to collect the data and technical analyses supporting the quality of the measurements, but do not contain tests of new scientific hypotheses, extensive analyses aimed at providing new scientific insights, or descriptions of fundamentally new scientific methods. Find more information about Data Descriptors here.

Scientific Data aims to address the increasing need to make research data more available, citable, discoverable, interpretable, reusable and reproducible.

You may access Scientific Data directly; alternatively you’ll find the link at findit.lu > e-journals.


Robert Darnton Header

As of now, we will present at irregular intervals interesting scientific websites recommended by our librarians. Today we’ll start with a “literary tour de France” selected by our subject librarian for french literature.

“On September 1, Robert Darnton launched an open-access website devoted to the world of books in eighteenth-century France: Publishing and the Book Trade in France and Francophone Europe, 1769-1789. The site functions as an electronic book, bringing together a large selection of essays, documents, maps, and illustrations. Among the items available: five hundred secret police reports on authors, letters exchanged by publishers and booksellers, inside accounts of the pirating industry, the diary of a traveling sales rep, and the correspondence of smugglers, along with background essays on every aspect of publishing and the book trade. In showing how books reached readers, the website reveals the extent of their penetration into the social order. It contains best-seller lists, studies of the operations of the book market, and a general analysis of the demand for literature on the eve of the French Revolution. It also makes available a selection of Robert Darnton’s previous writing on the history of books and cultural history.”

Due to technical problems, it’s currently not possible to open the “Citation overview” on a journal basis in Scopus.

We have contacted Elsevier and will blog as soon as the issue is resolved.

Since launching a more streamlined interface in February, the Scopus Team has been working on additional site developments that include enhancing Scopus analysis tools as well as improving ORCID functionality.

Taking a close look at the Scopus analysis tools, the team made some changes that better support day-to-day research tasks. As a result all analysis tools have been redesigned to provide a more consistent experience across Scopus. Specifically, these 3 tools have been improved and renamed and now include new features such as the option to export charts and graphs.
