This week, the Accelerating Science Awards Programme brings us a best practice video showing several exceptional real-world application of open access. These examples demonstrate how the reuse of Open Access research can accelerate scientific progress and benefit society as a whole. watch the video here.
Another best practice example for open access is the responsive EPUB reading system called readk.it. The system takes advantage of the abilities of modern web browsers to allow an attractive reading experience on all manner of devices. It is free for all to use and adapt.
Also, PLOS has a new blog called PLOS Opens. The blog focusses on how scholarly communications is changing, and how it should be changing. The big announcements will still be on the official PLOS blog and PLOS.org but at PLOS Opens policy, evidence, and opinion of how our world is changing will be put into focus.
