Protagoras and Open Access Scholarship

Submitted by Jim Brown on October 15, 2012 - 10:50am

Gordon Mitchell at the University of Pittsburgh recently delivered a fascinating presentation about the University of Pittsburgh's efforts with regard to open access publishing and tracking publication impact. As editor of Enculturation (an open access journal), I'm often asked how we measure the "impact" of the journal. Right now, we really only measure that by acceptance rate (15%) and by the number of unique views that particular articles get. Mitchell's talk and Pitt's recent experiments provide some new ways of thinking about these issues.

Here's a link to a video of the talk, and I've also embedded Mitchell's Prezi below.

It is very good to have tracking for publication. In, I have read that without tracking there are many disadvantages. Hope that the Open Access will help many people and will be accepted all over the world.
