Dear User Gaba - On Nova - again[edit]

in insisting on the word lowest you absolutely distort the SENSE ranking of book publishers over the last years. Your disrespect of the work of others is really untenable in a public place like Wikipedia: in vandalizing my versions, you utterly ignore the facts

1) University of the South Pacific and Nova Science[edit]

In December 2012, the USP President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra awarded Fiji National University’s new Professor in Economics, T K Jayaraman, the Vice Chancellor’s annual prize for excellence in research for Professor Jayaraman’s study on a single currency in the region, published in 2012 as a book by Nova Science Publishers, New York (From Fiji National University Newsletter, Dec 21, 3(51), 2012, page 5, available at http://tkjayaraman.com/docs/books/Dec%203%202012%20Award%20by%20Univ%20of%20the%20South%20Pacific%20to%20Professor%20Jayaraman.pdf] The opinions, expressed by Ms. Phillips, quoted in the article, certainly do not represent the official opinions of the USP nor the opinions of the head of its Library, since Nova Science published none the less than 142 titles from authors of that University (see: https://www.novapublishers.com/catalog/advanced_search.php?osCsid=f99d1a911db62adacfc4660d3425bb39], including three books by the Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of the South Pacific, Professor Biman Prasad (see: http://www.usp.ac.fj/index.php?id=2606&type=98)

2) The SENSE Publisher Ranking and Nova Science[edit]

The Dutch Research Consortium SENSE http://www.sense.nl/qualityassessment makes the first international effort at a credible international publisher ranking. The 2010 Report was based on 5 categories, and the latest is built on that.

A: Refereed book publications published by the world top of publishers B: Refereed book publications published by the world’s semi-top of publishers C: Refereed book publications published by other publishers D: published for an academic public (professional publications) E: mainly published for a non-academic (general) public

What they call C-publishers ("decent international publishers and excellent national publishers") – 1 credit per book chapter starting with Aalborg University Press and ending with Zed Books includes - on page 4 of 17 of the 2010 Report Nova Science Publications (Source: http://www.sense.nl/uploads?&func=download&fileId=855 ). It would be an absolute distorsion of the SENSE classification system to call category C in a derogatory fashion "lowest class" since the 2010 ranking makes the 5 categories clear - and defines them. C-publishers (decent international publishers and excellent national publishers) include such well-known book publishing companies in the social sciences as Amsterdam University Press; Berg Publishers; Dutch University Press; Fundacao Getulio Vargas); Flacso; Fondo de Cultura Economica (Mexico); Garland Publishers; Greenwood Press; Indiana University Press; L'Harmattan, (Paris); Leiden University Press; Leske & Budrich; Lexington Books; Lit Verlag; Marcel Dekker; Melbourne University Press; New York University Press; NIAS Press; Nijmegen University Press; North Holland Publications; Norton Publishing; Ohio State University Press; Peter Lang; Francis Pinter; Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and CIRAD, Bogota; Poznan University of Economics; Prentice Hall; Presse de l'Université de Lyon; Presse de l'Université de Quebec; Roskilde University Press; Rozenberg Publishers Amsterdam; Rutgers University Press; Siglo XXI Editores, Mexico); Stockholm University Press; Suhrkamp Verlag; Sussex University Press; Syracuse University Press; Tilburg University Press; Transaction Publishers; Twente University Press; UNESCO Publications; Universidad de Chile; Universität Hamburg; University of Birmingham; University of Bonn; University of British Columbia Press; University of Canberra Press; University of Cape Town Press; University of Copenhagen Press; University of Groningen Press; University of Hawai Press; University of Illinois Press; University of Kwazulu Natal Press; University of Leeds Press; University of Manchester Press; University of Massachusets Press; University of Ottawa Press; University of Stellenbosch Press; University of the West Indies Press; University of Washington Press; Utrecht University Press; Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht; Verlag Otto Harassowitz; Vervuert; Wageningen University Press; Wageningen Academic Publishers; Witwatersrand University Press; Zed Books.

In talking in such a devastating way about the scientific works of others, I'd understand book companies very well if they take such matters to court. Within the Wikipedia community, legal threats are not very well appreciated, but certainly Wikipedia is not above the law, and I'd very well understand if companies like Amsterdam University Press; Berg Publishers; Dutch University Press; Fondo de Cultura Economica (Mexico); Greenwood Press; Indiana University Press; L'Harmattan, (Paris); Zed Books etc. - if called "lowest category" in public in reference to a Dutch SENSE Report, which in reality talks about decent international publishers and excellent national publishers, they take the matter to courts [and author's patience with the matter could run out shortly as well]. Not only the private but also the criminal law of many countries protects the creditoworthiness of a person, and in distorting facts so ruthlesslessly you open a pandora's box. Best wishes and reconsider please your wordings

Belle Knox AFD #2[edit]

The second AFD for Belle Knox has been overturned and relisted. As you commented on the original AFD, you may wish to comment on this one as well. As there have been developments and sources created since the time of the original AFD, please review to see if your comments/!vote are the same or may have changed. Gaijin42 (talk)

Scientific opinion on climate change[edit]

Hi Gaba p, have a look on Gary Yohe2 and Michael Oppenheimers introductory essay on IPCC uncertainities. "Known unknowns" are as important as agreed "knowns". The actual IPCC consensus includes those as well. I commented the lede changes on the talk page. Serten (talk) 03:25, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

The Tausch article[edit]

Dear user Gaba it would be helpful if you could specify which sources in your opinion do not fit et cetera.

Talking about Austrian political scientists, and other political science communities around the globe, one could use the following criteria

Variable Acronym Concept Source 1 GLOBAL MARKET PRESENCE Global library outreach of the bestseller number 1 according to „OCLC Classify“ http://classify.oclc.org/classify2/ 2-3 GLOBAL MARKET PRESENCE number of works with a global library presence of 100/300 or more global libraries (both versions were used) http://classify.oclc.org/classify2/ 4 GEOGRAPHICAL DIVERSITY OF LIBRARY OUTREACH Maximum Library Outreach in France (library outreach of the bestseller number 1 in the respective country) http://ccfr.bnf.fr/portailccfr/ 5 GEOGRAPHICAL DIVERSITY OF LIBRARY OUTREACH Maximum Library Outreach in Sweden (library outreach of the bestseller number 1 in the respective country) http://libris.kb.se/form_extended.jsp?f=ext 6 GEOGRAPHICAL DIVERSITY OF LIBRARY OUTREACH Maximum Library Outreach in Japan (library outreach of the bestseller number 1 in the respective country) http://ci.nii.ac.jp/books/?l=en 7 GEOGRAPHICAL DIVERSITY OF LIBRARY OUTREACH Number of works available in the People's Republic of China (China Union Catalogue) http://opac.calis.edu.cn/ 8 JOURNAL PRESENCE AND IMPACT number of articles in peer reviewed journals according to SCOPUS http://www.elsevier.com/online-tools/scopus 9 JOURNAL PRESENCE AND IMPACT number of contributions in peer reviewed journals according to EBSCO HOST http://www.ebscohost.com/ 10 JOURNAL PRESENCE AND IMPACT Scopus-indexed article with the highest citation in SCOPUS journals http://www.elsevier.com/online-tools/scopus 11 GEOGRAPHICAL DIVERSITY OF JOURNAL PUBLISHING number of articles in the majority of the peer-reviewed journals in Eastern Europe and Russia (CEEOL) http://www.ceeol.com/aspx/SearchArticles.aspx 12 GEOGRAPHICAL DIVERSITY OF JOURNAL PUBLISHING journal articles indexed in the DIALNET network for Spain, Portugal and Latin America (DIALNET), covering most of the scientific journals published on the Iberian Peninsula and in Latin America http://dialnet.unirioja.es/ 13 ATTENTION GIVEN TO THE WORKS BY WESTERN AND GLOBAL DECISION MAKERS Number of works in the European Union Library ECLAS http://ec.europa.eu/eclas/F 14 ATTENTION GIVEN TO THE WORKS BY WESTERN AND GLOBAL DECISION MAKERS Number of works in the main United Nations Library UNBISNET http://unbisnet.un.org:8080/ipac20/ipac.jsp?profile=bib&menu=search#focus 15 ATTENTION GIVEN TO THE WORKS BY WESTERN AND GLOBAL DECISION MAKERS international articles for peer-reviewed journals indexed in the Pentagon Library http://www.whs.mil/library/

On my Wikipedia to do list to write entries on Austrian political scientists, the following names - besides Arno Tausch - frequently appear in such sources:

BAUBÖCK RAINER FALKNER GERDA MÜLLER WOLFGANG C HELMS LUDGER PELINKA ANTON HAERPFER CHRISTIAN GOTTWEIS HERBERT PLASSER FRITZ DÜR ANDREAS LAUBER VOLKMAR BRAND ULRICH PIATTONI SIMONA GEBREWOLD BELACHEW WERLHOF CLAUDIA VON POHORYLES RONALD KERNIC FRANZ LIEBHART KARIN LUIF PAUL GÄRTNER HEINZ SEGERT DIETER

It should be also mentioned that the photograph in the Pelinka article (many regard Pelinka s the Doyen of Austrian political science, with justification) does NOT coprrespond anymore with realities, since he is no longer Chairperson of the Wiesenthal Center in Vienna.
