License compliance issues with Template:OA-attribution[edit]

Hi. :) I've stumbled upon what I believe is a serious potential license issue with Template:OA-attribution that I believe needs to be handled. I've opened a discussion at Template talk:OA-attribution and would appreciate some input. Thanks! --Moonriddengirl (talk) 10:51, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Academia?[edit]

Hi. I see that a lot here deals with academic publishing in general, not necessarily OA. I thought you might be interested in Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals/Academia. Thanks. Fgnievinski (talk) 21:27, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Help review an interesting paper[edit]

As I noted at User_talk:Tbayer_(WMF)#Piotrus_contributions_on_Wikipedia.27s_research_for_November_2014_edition, there is an interesting paper (Public Domain Rank: Identifying Notable Individuals with the Wisdom of the Crowd)that can be reviewed in more detail in the upcoming November issue Wikimedia Research Newsletter (co-published with Signpost) that I think is of significant interest to librarians and digitization/open access/public domain activists. Perhaps someone would be interested in building upon my abstract-like review and providing a few more thoughts? Feel free to post on TB's page with an updated review, modify my own or add a new one. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 10:49, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Launch of WikiProject Wikidata for research[edit]

Hi, this is to let you know that we've launched WikiProject Wikidata for research in order to stimulate a closer interaction between Wikidata and research, both on a technical and a community level. As a first activity, we are drafting a research proposal on the matter (cf. blog post). Your thoughts on and contributions to that would be most welcome! Thanks, -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 02:15, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
