oa-3. Where's the OA?
Where is the OA?** Interacting with OA Artifacts
Example OA journal article: "Who Shares? Who Doesn't? Factors Associated with Openly Archiving Raw Research Data" by H. Piwowar, published in PLOS ONE.
Choose an area of scientific research that interests you, then use a search tool (Google Scholar, CCSearch, etc) to find three (3) OA resources related to your topic. In your blog response, include the following:
- the topic you were searching for (ie molecular biology, geophysics, phylogenomics, etc)
- the search tools/engine you used (Google Scholar, Science Direct)
- an (MLA/APA) citation for the OA resource
- the license for each resource (CC BY, CC BY-NC, etc)
Include a short (~1 paragraph) summary of your search for these OA items, noting any difficulties you had in the search process as well as any tools (open-source?) you used to make the search process more productive.
(Helpful hint: Mendeley and Zotero are nice citation management tools that can "pull" a citation from many digital archive webpages. Consider using them in the future.)
Post a link to your blog post in the discussion thread below.
