Library Science Degrees

Library Science Degrees, is an online resource decided solely to library and information science, education, and careers. Library science as a program area is having a resurgence in students with the digitization of documents and resources.

On this website you will be able to research all different types of information and library science degrees online. Our database is based on the American Library Association (ALA) list of accredited schools with a library science degree.

Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS)

The Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS), established in 2017, is a network of influential organisations committed to helping secure OA and OS infrastructure well into the future. 

Our purpose is to help identify non-commercial services essential to Open Science, and to make qualified recommendations on which of these services should be considered for funding support. Only non-commercial services on unsound financial footing are eligible. SCOSS provides the framework and funding structure, vetting potential candidates based on a defined set of criteria. The most eligible of those that pass the vigorous evaluation are then presented to the global OA/OS community of stakeholders with an appeal for monetary support in a crowdfunding-style approach.

SCOSS-supported open science infrastructure provides the scientific and scholarly community with resources and services to access, share, and assess research. SCOSS is a pragmatic approach to investing in open infrastructure; one that allows stakeholder institutions to participate in the direct and immediate funding of essential infrastructure. It is not the only pathway or means to invest in open infrastructure.

Encouragingly, since 2018, there has been a flurry of activity in this space. SCOSS runs parallel with a range of important, ambitious efforts aimed at investing in and supporting open infrastructure.

Though our approaches may differ, we all share the same goal of investing in open infrastructure. There is still much to be done before we have a global answer for how best to efficiently and effectively secure the future of open science infrastructure. Working together on this as a community is essential. In September 2018, a new initiative was launched called Invest in Open Infrastructure, where those engaged in this area regularly gather to update each other on their approaches, and to explore how we can move forward together. SCOSS is an active and proud member of this group.

CIÊNCIAVITAE

CIÊNCIAVITAE is the national scientific curriculum management system, presenting itself as a central element in the ecosystem of information management on scientific and technological activity as well as a tool to support the modernisation of the administrative processes supported by a CV.

Part of the concept of scientific citizenship (Ciência ID), CIÊNCIAVITAE appears as a privileged space of relationship between the citizen and science, reflected in the format of an integrated and personalised repository of the scientific path.

The CIÊNCIAVITAE will aggregate in a single site the information currently dispersed in multiple platforms, in a simple, harmonised and structured way, respecting the specificities of the scientific areas and enshrining the principles of freedom and responsibility in the management and presentation of the curriculum

The platform uses import mechanisms and automatic completion of curricular data, ensuring the principle of re-use of information (introduce once, reuse multiple), in direct articulation with Ciência ID. The development of the platform respects international best practices and regulations and is interoperable with several national and international systems and identifiers.​

CIÊNCIAVITAE is developed and managed by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). This platform will replace DeGóis curriculum management system launched in 2008 by FCT in partnership with the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology, the Gávea laboratory of the Department of Information Systems of the University of Minho and the Stela group of the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil.

European Geosciences Union (EGU)

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is the leading organisation for Earth, planetary and space science research in Europe. With our partner organisations worldwide, we foster fundamental geoscience research, alongside applied research that addresses key societal and environmental challenges. Our vision is to realise a sustainable and just future for humanity and for the planet.

It is a non-profit international union of scientists with about 20,000 members from all over the world. Membership is open to individuals who are professionally engaged in or associated with geosciences and planetary and space sciences and related studies, including students and retired seniors.

The EGU publishes a number of diverse scientific journals, which use an innovative open access format, and organises topical meetings, and education and outreach activities. It also honours scientists with a number of awards and medals. The annual EGU General Assembly is the largest and most prominent European geosciences event, attracting over 16,000 scientists from all over the world in the year 2019. The meeting’s sessions cover a wide range of topics, including volcanology, planetary exploration, the Earth’s internal structure and atmosphere, climate, as well as energy and resources.

The EGU was established in September 2002 as a merger of the European Geophysical Society (EGS) and the European Union of Geosciences (EUG), and has headquarters in Munich, Germany.

Frontiers

Frontiers is a leading Open Access Publisher and Open Science Platform

Our journals are led and peer-reviewed by editorial boards of over 100,000 top researchers. Covering more than 600 academic disciplines, we are one of the largest and highest-cited publishers in the world. To date, our freely accessible research articles have received over 500 million views and downloads and 1 million citations.

We strive to continuously empower the academic community with innovative solutions that improve how science is published, evaluated and communicated to researchers, innovators and the public.

Research is the foundation of modern society and it’s thanks to advances in science that we enjoy longer, healthier and more prosperous lives than ever before in human history. We want to build on successful science and make it even more powerful by ensuring it is openly available. This way, society will be able to generate more knowledge and accelerate innovation, health and prosperity for all.

Outbreak Science

Outbreak Science; A nonprofit to advance the science of outbreak response.

Recent epidemics of H1N1 influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), chikungunya, Ebola, and Zika, highlight the global importance of infectious disease outbreaks. The scale, speed, and diversity of these epidemics demand an equally scalable, rapid, and agile scientific response to prevent and control their impact.

Outbreak Science, a nonprofit founded in 2016, aims to support open data, open access, and open science in the context of epidemic responses.

microPublication

microPublication.org publishes brief, novel findings, negative and/or reproduced results, and results which may lack a broader scientific narrative.

Each article is peer reviewed and assigned a DOI. Included data is curated and, upon publication, deposited in third party referential databases (when available).

SciPost, publication portal

SciPost is a complete scientific publication portal managed by and for scientists.

It is purely online-based, and offers freely, openly, globally and perpetually accessible science.

Being managed by professional scientists, and making use of editor-solicited and contributed reviews, its Journals aim at the highest achievable standards of refereeing.

SciPost Commentaries allow Contributors to seamlessly comment on all existing literature.

Preprint handling and circulation occurs through the well-established arXiv; the rest of the publication process, from peer refereeing through publication all the way to post-publication commenting, is offered by SciPost.

Thus, simply stated: share your preprint on arXiv, publish it in
