I seem to have gotten back into the swing of these links posts recently. I wonder how long they last!
An interesting link this one. The Publishing Spot is an excellent source of comment, interview and other posts relating to publishing.
I think I may have linked to Open Access News before but I don’t mind. It’s an excellent website and offers a slightly academic view on some of the challenges ahead for trade and mainstream publishers as their customers demand more “Open access” to content just as some in the scientific community are now.
It wouldn’t do to post two links that were pushing the openness of the web without linking to somewhere else for a little balance. Plagiarism Today is quite honestly one of the finest sites on the web I have come across. It is passionate, dedicated and honest. It sticks to its core mission and seems intent on informing the world. From it’s About Page:
Plagiarism Today (PT) is a site targeted at Webmasters and copyright holders regarding the issue of plagiarism online. Though it deals with many legal issues, in particular the DMCA and copyright law, it is not a legal blog and is, instead, a blog regarding a societal ill that’s effects may never be fully understood or comprehended.
