- On Sansblogue, Tim Bulkeley talks about the Economics of Open
- Also on Sansblogue, in The Economics of Scholarly Journals, Tim mentions a useful article in Nature by Daniel Greenstein.
- On RogueClassicism, David Meadows has some Chatter on the Open Source Scholarship question with some interesting material on steps backwards by the Ancient History Bulletin.
- On Hypotyposeis, Stephen Carlson mentions the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Under Religion, DOAJ lists the following Biblical-related journals: Biblica, the Denver Journal, Journal of Biblical Studies, Quodlibet and TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism.
- Also on Hypotyposeis is a reference to the Open Access News, which I've added to the blogs I read daily.
- One of the several features on Open Access News that caught my eye was this post on Google searches Ingenta ejournals. The gist is that Google has begun to index even the priced on-line journals unless those journals opt out. I've done a few preliminary tests to see whether it Google has apparently indexed articles from those Ingenta journals of interest to Biblical scholars, but as far as I can tell it has not. No sign of Biblical Interpretation or Novum Testamentum, for example, and both of those have their on-line versions produced by Ingenta.
- Also on Hypotyposeis, Stephen comments on my post in Open [Source] Scholarship @ NT Gateway Weblog and has a particularly helpful concluding line:
I don't believe in opening up scholarship if it means a relaxation of standards, but I do believe in opening up scholarship if it means that more people will have access to more of the same resources as those affiliated with instuitions [sic].
