  2. Very general advice, but very good.
  3. "Under the rules of the restaurant, scientists, medical professionals and social scientists are eligible for a discount if they have recently published papers in journals that are included on internet databases such as the Science Citation Index and the Social Sciences Citation Index. The paper's impact factor is multiplied by 10 to determine the discount, which can account for as much as 30 percent of the bill."

  5. Extraordinarily strange way of filming this. Extremely good extemporaneous-seeming speaking. Good/interesting content. Worth the listen.

  7. The content of the paper is "Get me off your fucking mailing list" and has many awesome figures.
  8. "Papers We Love is a repository of academic computer science papers and a community who loves reading them." Wait. People do this for /fun/?! ;)

  12. "A spoof paper concocted by Science reveals little or no scrutiny at many open-access journals."

  15. Math and biostats are the shortest. History is the longest. Nobody is suprised.
  16. Very small and incomplete list ATM but perhaps it will grow.
  17. CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not for profit joint venture between the world’s leading academic publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community.
  18. Wait, is SAGE, the major academic publisher, encouraging authors to increase citations to their articles by adding them to as many Wikipedia articles as possible?

  21. With loss leaders, we all lose. Summary: "We show that large retailers, competing with smaller stores that carry a narrower range, can exercise market power by pricing below cost some of the products also offered by the smaller rivals, in order to discriminate multistop shoppers from one-stop shoppers. Loss leading thus appears as an exploitative device rather than as an exclusionary instrument, although it hurts the smaller rivals as well; banning below-cost pricing increases consumer surplus, rivals' profits, and social welfare. Our insights extend to industries where established firms compete with entrants offering fewer products. They also apply to complementary products such as platforms and applications."
