This week I recommend the following posts and papers:

1. Open peer review. This post exposes new forms of open peer review, which allow academics to separate scholarly evaluation from academic journals. Link

2. To critique original research outputs. This post exposes the difficulties to present some kinds of research conclusions to the general public. Link

3. How Open Access Empowered a 16-Year-Old to Make Cancer Breakthrough. Very and Very interesting video. Link

4. Open Access. Finally, I suggest reading a book about open access, that I found interesting. In this book, Peter Suber (the author) tells us what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold.
