A Nature editor contacted me in November, asking if I’d like to write a Comment about the upcoming NSF policy change in Biosketch instructions. It sounded like a great chance to talk about the value of alternative research products with a wide audience, so I agreed. The comment was published yesterday and is now available here:
Piwowar H. (2013). Value all research products, Nature, 493 (7431) 159-159. DOI: 10.1038/493159a
Because of Nature’s policies about copyright assignments for Comments, the comment is not open access and it is behind a paywall. Arg. That said, I requested that it be one of their “free” articles and they agreed, so it will be freely available at the above link for a week or two. I will post the text up on my website as soon as I am able, 6 months from now.
Working on a blog post about the process behind the scenes, because it was certainly unlike anything else I’ve published to date!
