Svake godine se naucnici, profesori, predavaci, studenti, blogeri, novinari okupljaju na ScienceOnline konferenciji da bi diskutovali, promovisali i bolje razumeli nauku na Web-u, razmenili misljenja i iskustva. Sledece godine Science online se odrzava kao dvodnevni dogadjaj,od 16-18 Januara 2009, u Research Triangle Park, NC/SAD.

Pogledajte wiki stranicu konferencije za dalje informacije, kao i program koji obiluje zanimljivim predavanjima i diskusionim panelima.

I just have posted entry at science blog in Serbian. This is the blog that I have founded and kept updated for eConsortia – KoBSON, thinking that someone will find it useful. This is the page in English explaining KoBSON. Existence and need of this science (only science blog) in Serbia is under the question (Consortia directors decide).
A year ago within my Master research paper I got very relevant results about the usage of the precious online resources within KoBSON (that are available in science institutions, academia and libraries) and results of that research was not quite satisfied for Serbian science community. More than thousands and thousands available resources at KoBSON are not used because of many factors that I explained in my master paper empiric study (comparing to USA and EU similar online environments). One of them is directly connected with ignorance beacuse of the lack of information and knowledge, poor level of digital literacy, non-activism of some institutions, professionals, etc.
I posted in Serbian language several questions weather low standard countries, as Serbia is, really need to use open source facilities that are free, and to interact and make better science within community?
I am in doubt that this community exists.

This is post addressed to Serbian science community, institutions, leaders, coordinators, scientists.

As I have been writing/talking about the role and the impact of science blogs in Serbian and world blogosphere, their role in research, academia, one asked me a question: does and why KoBSON need blog?
KoBSON has its own official web, home page which contains entire list of online available e-resources valuable for researchers, users but only in Serbia. That is the main goal and function – using available and precious electronic resources and therefore contribution to Serbian science and academic community.
BUT, for now there was one-sided communication (before science blog). Do e-archives and online Consortia need to foster and work on social online networking, science blog in this case, where the most important factors are interaction, exchange of information, ideas, and cooperation with other similar institutions in Serbia and world wide, OR it is NOT relevant (as some may think in Serbia) to include the KoBSON into modern world web 2.0 forms (e.g. open source software)?

Do you feel free to leave the comment (even anonymous) and to communicate, giving feedback on services you use within KoBSON, what would you prefer to see in the future as new application or online service?
Do you think that Consortia, libraries, museums, should be open for their users considering interaction and communication?
Does this blog contribute to intellectual development, its educational and informational content using social interaction?
Or, the Consortia, libraries, museums in Serbia will become deposited closed archives of huge amount of e-resources and data that are not used in its full capacity, and which policy is determined by the social and culture, education policy and the politics of the country?

Those questions I have asked myself for long time, as well, as rare colleagues from Serbian science community, who share my opinion.
Therefore, should KoBSON science blog, the only of its kind in Serbia, continue with work, developing, functioning as information-interactive tool in Serbian science community?

My personal opinion, beside above written, is that science blogging presents at this level the beginning of joining small community into larger one. Also, Serbian science community needs not only science blog, but also the other available open source (web 2.0) forms, applications for facilitating the usage of information, networking, cooperation, as the basic tool for social science interaction aa well as always emphasizing the educational role in academia and science intitutions.

What is your opinion?

Kako smo već pre par meseci govorili o ulozi naučnih blogova u domaćoj i svetskoj blogosferi, o ulozi blogova u nauci, istraživanju, akademiji, postavlja se pitanje da li je KoBSON-u potreban blog?
KoBSON ima svoju zvaničnu veb stranicu koja sadrži celokupan spisak online dostupnih resursa istraživačima, korisnicima samo u Srbiji. To je osnovna funkcija i cilj – korišćenje dostupnih dragocenih elektronskih resursa i doprinos naučnoj srpskoj zajednici.
Medjutim to je jednostrana komunikacija: korisnik, mašina, informacija.
Da li elektronske arhive i online konzorcijumi treba da neguju online mrežu (social online networking) čiji je najbitniji faktor društvena interkativnost, razmena informacija, ideja i saradnja sa ostalim srodnim institucijama u Srbiji i svetu, ili se smatra da uključivanje KoBSON-a u savremene svetske web 2.0 forme (koje su open source software) nije relevantno?
Da li se osećate slobodnijim da ostavite javno komentar (čak i anonimno) i komunicirate šta vam odgovara, koje servise u okviru KoBSOn-a koristite, šta biste u budućnosti želeli da vidite kao novu aplikaciju, ili servis?

Da li smatrate da konzorcijumi, biblioteke, muzeji treba da budu otvoreni za svoje korisnike kada je interaktivnost i komunikacija u pitanju?
Da li ovaj blog doprinosi intelektualnom napretku, svojim edukativnim i informacionim karakterom koristeći društvenu interakciju?
ILi će konzorcijumi postati deponovana skladišta informacija koja se slabo koriste, koja čuvaju dragocene naučne resurse, a koje određuje dominantna kulturna politika jedne zemlje?

O ovim temama koje već duže vremena sebi postavljam, kao i kolege iz srpske naučne zajednice, slučajno ili ne, upravo danas je postavio kao jednu od tema prof. Paul Jones na aktuelnoj OCLC NextSpace virtuelnoj panel diskusiji, u sličnom i mnogo naprednijem kontekstu.

Dakle, da li KoBSON blog, jedini te vrste u Srbiji, treba da nastavi da se razvija i funkcioniše kao informaciono interkativno sredstvo u srpskoj naučnoj zajednici?

Moje lično mišljenje je da je ovo tek početak i da svakako srpskoj naučnoj zajednici nije potreban samo naučni blog, nego i korišćenje ostalih dostupnih open source (web 2.0) formi za lakše korišćenje informacija, saradjivanja, kao i osnovno sredstvo za društvenu, naučnu interakciju.

Šta vi mislite o ovome?

Za istraživače, studente, postdiplomce, profesore koji se bave i koriste arhive otvorenog pristupa, slede dva priručnika, vodiči za samo-deponovanje naučnih radova. Prvi je Handbook Eprints open access repozitorija, a drugi je Vodič za razvoj otvorenog pristupa kroz digitalne repozitorije.. Prosledite svojim kolegama koji se bave naučnim informacijama i naukom ove korisne dokumente.

U okviru Google Tech predavanja, izdavajamo zanimljivo izlaganje Dr. Peter Murray-Rust-a, sa University of Cambridge, strucnjaka iz oblasti Molecular Informatics. Murray je kreator CML -Chemical Mark up language-a. Tema ovog krajnje zanimljivog i korisnog predavanja je Semanticki veb iz oblasti hemije, ‘open data’, akademsko izdavastvo, naucni radovi, casopisi koji se sve godine objavljuju i novim tehnologijama koje se pritom koriste, o zanimljivim naucnim otkricima, kao i konvertovanju semantickih podataka u PDF. Ovo 55-minutno predavanje je sa titlovima za lakse pracenje izlaganja.

Zanimljiva je cinjenica da ovaj profesor, doktor nauka, u svom izlaganju na pocetku, kada govori o informacionim i web tehnologijama, kaze da je prestao i da ne voli da koristi HTML slajdove i Power Point presentation alatku za svoja predavanja (“it destroys information and it destroys brains”), vec koristi svoje slajdove, reference, komentare i predavanje koje se nalazi na njegovom blogu, odakle direktno koristi sve opcije Web 2.0 tehnologije.
Sledi citat abstrakta ovog predavanja:

ABSTRACT The millions of scientific papers published each year are an amazing source for scientific discovery but in most of them the experimental data is destroyed by the publication process. Publishers insist on converting semantic data into PDF which effectively destroys everything. We have been developing social and technical strategies to preserve and liberate this data and where this has happened have been able to create completely new mashups and other semantic resources.

Chemistry is the most tractable discipline for the semantic web – most chemistry can be turned into XML with little semantic loss, using Chemical Markup Language and complementary MLs such as XHTML, MathML and SVG.

We have to mobilise a bottom-up revolution through modern Internet ideas – blogs, communal source development, interoperability. We have done this in chemistry through the Blue Obelisk movement – an informal but coherent group of young-at-heart hackers. We are adopting lightweight web technologies (“REST”, etc.) to chemistry – an example will be CMLRSS which we run in a Bioclipse environment. «
