Adventures in Signal Processing and Open Science

Episciences.org progress

Lately, I have been following the Episciences project as you may have noticed in my previous post. It seems there has been some more progress recently: I have just noticed that another “epi-committee” has been added to the site (I understand these epi-committees as a sort of editorial boards responsible for a given subject area). In addition to the existing math committee, the new committee is Episciences IAM (Informatics and Applied Mathematics). This sounds a bit closer to my area. I wonder if they consider signal processing to be in their area?
The page so far says that the committee is being formed and as such does not list any members yet. It will be interesting to see what this turns into.

Episciences.org update

I mentioned the Episciences project the other day in Scientific journals as an overlay. In the meantime I have tried to contact the people behind this project and The Open Journal, apparently without any luck.

I went and checked the Episciences website yesterday and it actually seems that they are moving forward. They changed the page design completely and there is now a button in the upper right corner to create an account and log in. I took the liberty of doing so to have a look around. I was able to create an account, but is just about it so far. The site still seems quite “beta” – I was not able to save changes to my profile and I cannot yet find anywhere to submit papers. It is nice to see some progress on the platform and I will be keeping an eager eye on it to find out when they will go operational.

There is an update on this post in Episciences.org update

In many of my posts since I started this blog, I have been writing about open peer review. Another topic related to open science that interests me is open access (to scientific papers). Part of open access in practice is about authors posting their papers, perhaps submitted to traditional journals, to preprint servers such as arXiv. This is used a lot, particularly in physics and mathematics.

PEER REVIEW WATCH

Peer-review is the gold standard of science. But an increasing number of retractions has made academics and journalists alike start questioning the peer-review process. This blog gets underneath the skin of peer-review and takes a look at the issues the process is facing today.
