The Null model project paper is in press with Bioscene, the Journal of College Biology teaching.
The irony of publishing about OER in a traditional journal is not wasted on me. But this one has a silver lining: “It is the policy of Bioscene that authors retain copyright of their published material”. I’m assuming that means I can upload it to commons and make it an open resource.
I’m also curious what folks in general think about the potential conflict traditional publication and OER. Academics still need peer reviewed publications for tenure and promotion. I know we experimented with peer review on WE some time back. Not sure where it went exactly. Regardless, I don’t think that traditional academic publication is going anywhere. Also it is a way to communicate OER content to a broader audience.
Thoughts for the day, and happy holidays to all who are getting one.
