Welcome Clemens. Clemens has just joined the Peer Preview Group. He has been with us for a while and has also shared some articles with us, such as this one:
http://www.thenextlayer.org/node/165 and also this one http://www.thenextlayer.org/node/520
Now Clemens is about to write chapter 1 of his thesis and once done will share it with us he said. So maybe others would also like to say hello to him and maybe Clemens might want to add to this introduction. As an Austrian living in Berlin, how do you get on with the Prussians?
Hello Uncommonists, the GET PUBLISHED conference went well on tuesday. I was pleased to be seated next to a pair of employees from Taylor Francis, one of the biggest publishers of academic journals in the world. At the far end was a woman from Cambridge University Press, in between Tony White, who described himself as the "token author" and Anthony Iles from Mute magazine. What made me happy was that I could say that "academic research funded with public money should be in the public domain" (thereby implying not behind the walls of gatekeepers to knowledge such as taylor francis".
