The post News and notes for math, October 2017 appeared first on University Libraries.

]]>In case you missed the Teaching Center announcement, Diane Bunce, PhD, a chemical education researcher, will give a talk, Using Research to Change Our Perception of the Average Student, Wednesday, November 8th, 4:00 pm, Wilson 214.

New general science open access journal: Knowable Magazine “explores the real-world significance of scholarly work through a journalistic lens. We report on the current state of play across a wide variety of fields — from agriculture to high-energy physics; biochemistry to water security; the origins of the universe to psychology.” It is published by Annual Reviews with support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

I welcome your requests and suggestions for library acquisitions. Email Ruth at rlewis@wustl.edu or use forms, Recommend a Purchase for the Library or Recommend a Journal Purchase or Cancellation. Please specify format when you have a preference; while there are good reasons to buy ink-on-paper book or ebooks when they are available on user-friendly platforms, I would prefer to avoid stretching our limited budget to buy BOTH formats of the same title.

**Springer ebooks:** Supplementary materials released with the print books (CD-ROMs, for example) are made available to the purchasers of the ebooks at http://extras.springer.com. Because I get these lists from compilations at Springer, there are always newer books available (which I will post next month). If you are looking for a book from Springer or a Springer-related publisher, it never hurts to search at http://link.springer.com/search?facet-content-type=”Book”.

]]>The post Emergent Scientist appeared first on University Libraries.

]]>*Emergent Scientist* offers young scientists at the beginning of their careers the opportunity to discover peer-reviewed publishing and the publication process. The journal will especially serve those junior scientists who may not pursue a career in research, but become engineers, analysts, consultants or the like – as they will rarely get the opportunity to experience the peer review process once they have left their academic studies.

The first articles are available at https://emergent-scientist.edp-open.org and while *Emergent Scientist* is currently physics oriented, the intention is for the scope to be broadened to include subjects such as mathematics and the life sciences.

]]>The post Open Science Framework for Washington University appeared first on University Libraries.

]]>Open Science Framework is one option available to assist researchers in research management and sharing. Currently, there are over 100 WU-affiliated researchers using the OSF. Each current user will be receiving an email inviting them to affiliate themselves and their projects with the WUSTL branded Open Science Framework (WUSTL OSF). New users may select “Sign Up” > select “Login through your Institution” > select Washington University in St Louis from the list of available institutions > and login with WUSTL Key.

Your subject librarian will welcome your questions!

**More about Open Science Framework:**

Open Science Framework, “a scholarly commons to connect the entire research cycle,” is a free and open source project management tool which facilitates faculty, graduate student, and researcher collaborations across all disciplines (humanities, social sciences, medicine, and natural sciences). Despite the name, a quick search of projects or preprints will yield history, architecture and many other examples of humanists and social scientists using this site. As a collaboration tool, the OSF helps scholars work on projects privately with a limited number of collaborators and make parts of or all of their projects publicly accessible. As a workflow system, the OSF enables connections to the many services scholars already use (such as box, github, zotero, dmptool, and more). To learn more about the features of the OSF check out their website; it features a nice image of some current workflow and storage integrations:

OSF is developed and maintained by the Center for Open Science.

Still trying to imagine how you might use this tool? You may find this recent blog post inspirational: Using the Open Science Framework to share files, for Science, by C. Titus Brown.
