Congrats to the @mitlibraries team! “They rolled with a constantly changing landscape as the state, MIT, and the Libraries navigated the Covid crisis, and did so with a thoughtful and patron-centered focus,” said one colleague. news.mit.edu/2021/mit-libra…

DC Health is now calculating the daily case rate separately for vaxxed and unvaxxed. As of 8/11, Vaxxed: 9.2 cases per 100,000. Unvaxxed: 35.6 cases per 100,000. The director hopes the updated dashboard helps residents understand the importance of getting vaxxed against covid.

If there's one thing I learned in grad school it's that my culture is communal. I need to bounce ideas around and vent and laugh to do my best work. I didn't have that in my last program, so my friends and I decided to make it. Apply for The WERKshop now: bit.ly/werkshopapp

"COVID-19-related submissions to bioRxiv and medRxiv have not resulted in major public health hazards... To the contrary, the worst offenders were instead published in conventional refereed venues [journals]" nature.com/articles/s4225… #Preprints HT @cshperspectives

"90% of the institutions surveyed have their own repository, participate in a shared repository or both." Distributed, community-based infrastructure like repos are key for an equitable transition to OS. Let's invest and build on this existing network #COAR_Notify twitter.com/euatweets/stat…

From Paul Ginsparg: "I do not claim that preprint distribution is a universal panacea for delays and biases of peer-reviewed journal publication but, rather, I would suggest that with proper context the benefits can far outweigh the risks." twitter.com/NatRevPhys/sta…

Read this remarkable piece on archives & memory, white institutions & Black lives. It’s at once allusive & laser-like — all ripples & surface-tension, clarity & depth. (Ever-brilliant archivist Dorothy Berry “trouble[s] the waters [to] see what comes up.”) twitter.com/dorothyjberry/…

And of course they are encouraging Editorial Board members to contact UKRI - with a set of Elsevier-approved talking points included in the message...
Retweeted by Chris Bourg
None of these arguements are new. And UKRI has had an extensive review process where publihsers have been able to make their best case. What is interesting is that Elsevier admit they are lobbying not only UKRI, but Government as well. Attempting to bypass the review process?
Retweeted by Chris Bourg
Elsevier raises researchers' freedom to publish. Conveniently forgetting that it is Elsevier that sets the policies for their own journals, they constuct the policy gateways towards publication. If Elsevier is concerned about freedom to publish they can dismantle those gateways!
