Forecasting: principles and practice | OTexts
"Forecasting is required in many situations. Stocking an inventory may require forecasts of demand months in advance. Telecommunication routing requires traffic forecasts a few minutes ahead. Whatever the circumstances or time horizons involved, forecasting is an important aid in effective and efficient planning. This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to forecasting methods and presents enough information about each method for readers to use them sensibly."

Project MUSE - Cornell University Press Books Available Open Access on MUSE
"Project MUSE, in collaboration with Cornell University Press, is pleased to announce the digital, fully-open-access availability of seven classic titles from the Press’ distinguished catalog, on the Project MUSE platform. Funded via a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ (NEH) Humanities Open Book Program, the seven out-of-print titles – none previously available electronically – were carefully selected with input from subject specialists at the Cornell University Library for their enduring scholarly impact.  “We are thrilled to make these seven classic titles openly accessible for the first time to the global scholarly community on Project MUSE,” said Dean Smith, Director of Cornell University Press. “MUSE will enable us to maximize discovery and dissemination on an established platform that is embracing new models for hosting open access scholarship.” “These first open books from Cornell University Press reflect a long-standing legacy of publishing classic scholarship in German Studies and Slavic Studies,” said Brett Bobley, Director of the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities. “We are pleased that the titles are accessible and open for the next generation of scholars.”"

Wi Journal | Journal of Mobile Media
"Wi: journal of mobile media (pronounced wī) was founded in 2006 as in-house publication of the Mobile Digital Commons Network (MDCN) and has since operated under the aegis of the Mobile Media Lab. The Lab has two nodes, one in Montreal ( and one in Toronto ( is an open- access peer-reviewed experimental journal. The mandate of the journal is to create an interdisciplinary international dialogue for scholars to explore the “term” mobilities in all of its many manifestations, although the history of the journal indicates an emphasis on the connection of mobilities research to media studies, the media arts and communications. We are particularly interested in publishing works that use media (images, sounds, animations) as a major component of their articles, although this is not a requirement."

Access, accommodation, and science: Knowledge in an “open” world | Kelly | First Monday
"The rising popularity of open access (OA) publishing in scholarly communities is purportedly leading to increased public access to knowledge. This is especially true for discussions of scientific research. However, we argue that while there have been significant moves to provide better material or technological access to research, OA advocates must still tackle the issue of making original scientific research articles conceptually accessible to broader publics. Despite being freely available on the Web, research articles are not by default linguistically or conceptually accessible to the global public(s) they are partially intended to reach with the move to OA. In this paper we examine how OA, coupled with innovative scientific communication practices, can help align the ideals of OA with the realities of complex, specialized genres of writing to provide better, more “open,” access to research. We look to PLOS ONE and the PLOS Blog Network to consider how material access coupled with communication strategies developed by bloggers can work together toward more openly accessible original scientific research articles."

It’s Not 1995 Again — Why the Threats from the New Big Players May Be Much More Significant This Time | The Scholarly Kitchen
"In 1995, the problem we faced was a clear threat of technological dominance. In 2013, the threat we face is one of ideological dominance. Large, rich, and well-coordinated groups of funders, governments, and technology companies have different incentives to see this unclear but sexy ideology of “open” implemented, and their alignment is growing. The chances become lower each year that smaller society publishers will be able to continue to practice independent and robust peer and editorial review, keep prices low by having diverse business models, use publishing surpluses to fund other activities of their organizations (research, education, and advocacy), and have anything more in the future than the running cost-plus argument of a utilities provider."

"the Clothesline Paradox" | Conversation | Edge
"I'm jumping from my economic ruminations to these ruminations about open data in science, but I think the connection here is that what starts with open data and what appears to be uneconomic and free actually is the foundation for the next generation of businesses. There's something that Clayton Christenson once called "The Law of Conservation of Attractive Profits." When something that used to be valuable becomes commoditized, something that's adjacent suddenly becomes valuable. This is the thread that ties together my thinking about open source software and what I called "Web 2.0." I was fascinated with the parallels between commodity PC hardware and open source software. When IBM made PC hardware a commodity, Microsoft figured out how to make PC software proprietary and valuable. As the Internet and open-source software made software more of a commodity, companies like Google figured out how to make data and algorithms into something that was proprietary and very valuable. I think we're going to see the same thing in the world of open access."

BMJ Group blogs: BMJ » Blog Archive » Richard Smith: A bad bad week for access
I was once the editor of the BMJ and chief executive of the BMJ Publishing Group. I work for a $100 billion company. I’m an unpaid professor at both Warwick University and Imperial College London. But, mighty and pretentious as this sounds, I’m down there in the gutter when it comes to accessing scientific articles, and this has been a particularly bad week. I want you to know about it.

BMJ Group blogs: BMJ » Blog Archive » Richard Smith: Scientific communication is returning to its roots
"Although the “mass media era now looks like a relatively brief and anomalous,” it is seen as normal by those who have spent their careers in those organisations. Those stuck in the “old paradigm” have great difficulty imagining and accepting the “new paradigm.”

Scientific journals are lagging behind newspapers, but they are surely on the same course. Many find unacceptable the domination of a few journals and the huge profits made by some publishers from the scientific value produced by others, and the open access has begun for these and other reasons. Open access articles are increasing rapidly, and just in the past few years we have seen the appearance of many “megajournals” like PLoS One and BMJ Open, which are aiming to publish rapidly after light peer review that does not attempt the largely impossible job of “spotting winners” but leaves readers to decide.

Quantum computing for the determined | Michael Nielsen
"I’ve posted to YouTube a series of 22 short videos giving an introduction to quantum computing. Here’s the first video:

Below I list the remaining 21 videos, which cover subjects including the basic model of quantum computing, entanglement, superdense coding, and quantum teleportation.

To work through the videos you need to be comfortable with basic linear algebra, and with assimilating new mathematical terminology. If you’re not, working through the videos will be arduous at best! Apart from that background, the main prerequisite is determination, and the willingness to work more than once over material you don’t fully understand."

Radical Open Access in the Humanities | Scholarly Communication Program
"Discover why open access is not only a viable option for the humanities, but a revolutionary one. Though more widely recognized in the sciences, open access publishing is well established in the humanities and continues to break new ground. Open Humanities Press co-founder Gary Hall considers open access initiatives in the humanities and discuss their implications for our notions of academic authorship, the book, content creation, and publication. Gary Hall is a professor of Media and Performing Arts at Coventry University and author of Digitize This Book!: The Politics of New Media, or Why We Need Open Access Now. He is co-founder of the Open Humanities Press (OHP), founding co-editor of the open access journal Culture Machine, and editor of the OHP series Liquid Books."
