Thanks for engaging in today’s discussion about the politics, economics, and “impact” of academic publishing. The few slides with relevant links are here, and here is the link to the new alt-metric SciCombinator feed of high-click-count articles.
I will soon transcribe notes from our discussion over the first hour from your own surveys of yourself and your advisors and post them under lecture notes.
For next week, please refine your plans for your proposed outreach project. Where are you now, what more do you need (materials/skills) from us, and what is your workplan for the next remaining weeks? If suitable please blog on this topic, or at least write it down and share your concrete plans with us.
