Microsoft’s purchase of GitHub leaves some scientists uneasy

  
Nature, Vol. 558, No. 7710. (15 June 2018), pp. 353-353, https://doi.org/10.1038/d41586-018-05426-0

Abstract

They fear the online platform will become less open, but other researchers say the buyout could make GitHub more useful. [Excerpt] GitHub — a website that has become popular with scientists collaborating on research data and software — is to be acquired by Microsoft [...] [::Decentralized systems] Daniel Himmelstein, a data scientist at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, says that GitHub is problematic for researchers, but that this has nothing to do with the Microsoft acquisition. GitHub hosts repositories of code or data ...

 

The importance of free and open source software and open standards in modern scientific publishing

  
Publications, Vol. 1, No. 2. (26 June 2013), pp. 49-55, https://doi.org/10.3390/publications1020049

Abstract

In this paper we outline the reasons why we believe a reliance on the use of proprietary computer software and proprietary file formats in scientific publication have negative implications for the conduct and reporting of science. There is increasing awareness and interest in the scientific community about the benefits offered by free and open source software. We discuss the present state of scientific publishing and the merits of advocating for a wider adoption of open standards in science, particularly where it ...

List of indexed keywords within the transdisciplinary set of domains which relate to the Integrated Natural Resources Modelling and Management (INRMM). In particular, the list of keywords maps the semantic tags in the INRMM Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD). [\n] The INRMM-MiD records providing this list are accessible by the special tag: inrmm-list-of-tags ( http://mfkp.org/INRMM/tag/inrmm-list-of-tags ). ...

 

Why free software is more important now than ever before

  
Wired, Vol. 2013, No. 9. (28 November 2013)

Abstract

[Excerpt] It is now 30 years since I launched the campaign for freedom in computing, that is, for software to be free or “libre” (we use that word to emphasize that we’re talking about freedom, not price). Some proprietary programs, such as Photoshop, are very expensive; others, such as Flash Player, are available gratis — either way, they subject their users to someone else’s power. Much has changed since the beginning of the free software movement: Most people in advanced countries now ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
The library of INRMM related pubblications may be quickly accessed with the following links.

INRMM-MiD was experimentally established by the Maieutike Research Initiative in 2008 and then improved with the help of several volunteers (with a major technical upgrade in 2011). This new integrated interface is operational since 2014.
