Notability[edit]

open research does not seem to exist on google so I think this is a candidate for deletion

That's not true. MIT's open source project shows up as one of the first ten hits. And even if it were true, google is (thanks God) not yet a measure of relevance for all human activity! ;-) On a more serious note: the term is often used in academia to refer to "open science" in the humanities and social sciences.

Heads up, I'm intending to expand this article over the next month. I'm vetting some additional external references plus would like to include a short bit on role of social media / semantic web in the practices. Any objections? FrenchB (talk) 20:11, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Deletion of OSSP (Open Source Science Project)[edit]

As explained in a Labrigger blog post, there is much reason to believe that The Open Source Science Project is a scam. As of October 2012, although the website mentions 19 supported universities (including Harvard, Caltech, Oxford and Stanford) and more than 1000 "members" (who are asked to pay a subscription), no research proposal was listed for any of them. Furthermore, no information was available about the OSSP team, and the Michigan address is simply a P.O. Box. This is quite similar to what Fred Beall calls "predatory open-access publishers". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jaamc (talkcontribs) 21:43, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for this. Blue Rasberry (talk) 22:08, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
