Open science, open access and Latin America: a short conversation with Jon Tennant

I put together a video we shot in Peru with some notes I took when we spoke in order to publish ‘Open science, open access and Latin America: a short conversation with Jon Tennant’, published as a tribute to him, the smartest ideas are his and as he would say: “it’s published on #OpenAccess, duh!”

By request of our master program on Educational Innovation, I’ll be offering this conference on ‘The challenges of scientific publishing’ (English only), as a way for our students to familiarize themselves with the vocabulary and discourse around this topic. Anyone else is most welcome too!


 

Bibliometrics units as dynamic engines for universities’ scientific production

1

New publication! We analyzed the dynamic role that a bibliometrics research unit can have for boosting any higher-education institution’s scientific production, a case study on Unidad de Investigación en Bibliometría – USIL co-written with my friends Josmel Pacheco-Mendoza and Joe Alway https://dx.doi.org/10.1177/0266666920918466


Abstract: In this article, we review the process behind the establishment of the Bibliometrics Research Unit at the San Ignacio de Loyola University (Peru), as a specialized unit that has aided in enhancing its university’s scientific production and research practices. The Unit’s functions and its role as a dynamic engine for scientific production are also presented and discussed under the Peruvian and Latin American contexts.

Tales from the Writing Crypt

Tales from the Writing Crypt (read as internal monologue). 1. At 5,000 words: this is a chapter, I must have at least 10,000. 2. At 10,000: I still need to finish all sections, then I will make sure it is 12,000 at most. 3. Almost finished. Wordcount? 14,500. Will they accept this? Where did I put the darned guidelines? Oh, I still haven’t written that section on (put your topic here).

Remembering Jon Tennant

So saddened by the news of Jon Tennant’s passing. The #OpenAccess community mourns this huge loss. I really knew him for a short time but he was an extremely smart and great guy.

Remembering this very fortunate opportunity I had of interviewing Jon Tennant. We’ll miss you a lot!
