From Last Month

  • Lecture with Chris Surridge done! If we want an OWW journal, piggy-back PLoSOne.
  • Server move done! We were Slashdot-ed. Double traffic.
  • Post Genomic - any page on OWW that uses Biblio ext with site will be in RSS feed.
  • Talked with Linda Miller (head of US Nature and peer-review trial) about how to get peer-review publishing. No problem with publishing information posted on OWW. Great if OWW becomes DOI. DSpace has DOI server.
    • Should be able to submit request to DOI page.
    • E-mail DSpace for possibly free DOIs.
  • Science Journalists Highlight up! Thanks Reshma!
  • Will have OWW SubReddit up soon!
