Happy to share our new #openaccess paper on mapping global patterns of land use decision-making @IVM_VU @VU_Science @acwfs_VU @ELSenviron…

Together with @peterverburg11 we studied how contextual conditions can explain why and how we change land use. 1/9 Image
We found out, that differences in land use decision-making can (to a large extent) be explained by local geographic characteristics. 2/9 Image
For example, we observe how survival and livelihood are positively associated to the spatial variation in childhood malnutrition, distance to roads and negatively to total economic output. 3/9 Image

"The mischaracterization of Critical Race Theory—a body of scholarship led by people of color centered in the legal academy—as anti-white propaganda is more than a caricature: ...…
"It is a ploy intended to gin up the idea that anti-racist work is itself racist—against whites." ~ Prof. Cheryl Harris in @thenation
"The bogeyman the memo seeks to evoke is a familiar figure, designed to appeal to [his] base, reprising [themes of] the white nationalist White Genocide Project, asserting that 'Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white' + 'Diversity means chasing down the last white person.' ”

jammer dat de @RathenauNL "Balans van de Wetenschap 2020" nog behoorlijk vol staat (iig in eerste 49 bladzijden) met internationale ranking schetjes. Niet nuttig voor hoe we verder moeten :(
@RathenauNL ik vind de hele karakterisatie van NL in het internationale speelveld wat dun ijs... :(
@RathenauNL paragraaf 2.4 is een mooi voorbeeld daarvan... "state of the art" lijkt direct gekoppeld te zijn aan hoe duur het was... ach... je bent als Nederlander rentmeester of niet, zal ik dan maar denken :(

Recently, the problem of vanished #OpenAccess journals—176 of them—was exposed by @l_matthia @mikaellaakso

Since 2017, @internetarchive has also been working to quantify the missing articles & extract what we have saved in the #WaybackMachine.…
@l_matthia @mikaellaakso @najkoja So far the @internetarchive has archived and identified 9 million open access journal articles.
"One of our goals is to archive as many of the articles on the open web as we can, and to keep up with the growing stream of new articles published every day."
@l_matthia @mikaellaakso @najkoja Goal #2: " Another is to look back over the vast petabytes of web content in the Wayback Machine back to 1996, and find any content we might already have but is not easily findable or discoverable."
See the blog for graph of what we have, what someone else has, what's missing.

Two solid years of work on understanding how hillfort gates worked! Here’s a 🧵 on the new paper by me, @rgsm84 @DrDerekHamilton Dr Eddie Rule & @johnswogger. Funded by @LivUni, @Go_CheshireWest, @HistoricEngland. What did these ‘lost’ iron objects tell us about the Iron Age? 1/ Image
In 1936-37, the iron objects were excavated by Bill Varley of @LivUni (who also excavated @OldOswestryFort). One of the iron mechanisms remained attached to its oak, entrance gate-post - that was still standing 3’ tall! Thought lost in WWII, @rgsm84 tracked the objects down 🕵️‍♂️ ImageImage
The objects were in a fragile state - so we had them conserved, with the help of @HistoricEngland & Ian Panter (YAT). We analysed them 🔬(for wood type, metal composition), illustrated them, undertook re-fitting, worked out their ‘types’, and how they functioned as mechanisms. ImageImageImageImage

We had a recent #openaccess paper published in Environ. Sci. Technol. on the photohydrolysis of Ar-CF3 groups to Ar-CO2H, focusing on the effect of substituents (…). I thought I would do a short thread. 1/n TOC art showing river with chemical reaction, pharmaceutical
The work is the last chapter of Ale Manfrin's (@AlchemistAle) doctoral thesis. Thanks again to @KarlGademann and @JanssenLilli for being part of the defense committee.… 2/n
The central reaction in the paper is the photohydrolysis of trifluoromethyl-substituted arenas giving carboxylic acids as products. The reaction has been known for quite a while and has been studied a fair amount in Switzerland. 3/n reaction scheme showing conversion of meta-trifluoromethylanSnapshot of title page of Grinter 1968 paperSnapshot of title page of Seiler 1972 paper

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye.

For six years I had the honor and pleasure to be the Editor in Chief of Political Communication, our joint ICA/APSA @poli_com journal.

Time for a few reflections: the Musings of an Editor-Eject.

THREAD 🧵 [1/ ]
First, a number of sincere thanks are due. To the inaugural Political Communication Editor, mentor, inspirator: #DorisGraber. To the successive Editors: David Swanson, David Paletz, and Shanto Iyengar. To the dream team of Associate Editors (@JesperStromback, Tamir Sheafer, [2/
Kimberly Gross), to the Editorial Board, to authors, reviewers, and the T&F production team. And to the Editorial Assistant, now Dr Anna Brosius. Without @AnnaBrosius, no journal.

How is the journal doing? I believe well. Political communication scholarship is booming, [3/

I have more information on this & it's a worrying trend to me. This is happening in Lancet journals.

1. The author submits the manuscript to the journal. They see it's marked compliant with our #openaccess policy & see that the Lancet has an OA option on their website
2. The manuscript is accepted

3. The author asks to make sure that paper is OA to comply with their funder mandate

4. The journal responds that the article type has been picked that does not allow for OA so unfortunately their request is denied
5. The author responds that they have a funder mandate & that they WANT the paper OA regardless

6. The journal points out that the funder mandate only cover primary research & their paper was designated as another article type - again request denied

Ingolf U. #Dalferth, der "theol. Rezensionsexperte", hat in der #ThLZ (Nr. 7/2020) mit Pointen nicht gespart - und ordentlich Staub aufgewirbelt.
Ein Tread mit Zitaten aus seinem Rückblick "Sind wir noch urteilsfähig?" auf 20-Jahre ThLZ-Arbeit.
#theodigital #digitalekirche
Theologietreiben sei haarig geworden - 4 Gründe:
1. "die Krise des wiss. Publikationswesens"
2. "die Entwicklung neuer Kommunikationstechnologien"
3. "die #Globalisierung der theol. Wissenschaft"
4. "die Tendenzen ideologischer Selbstzerstörung in der #Geisteswissenschaft".
ad 1: Der (theol.) #Buchmarkt gehe kaputt, "die Produktionsweise wiss. #Verlage [sei] weltweit in eine Krise geraten". "Geringe Auflagen", "Überschwemmung des Marktes", "Abbau von Wissenschaftskritierien", "Abbröckeln der alten Abnehmer und Abonnenten", "#OpenAccess".

Hier ist er, der versprochene Thread zur #Publikationsethik! Das aktuelle wissenschaftliche Publikationssystem ist aus ethischer Perspektive höchst problematisch – einfach blind auf Open Access zu setzen verschiebt das Problem aber nur. Warum? (1/18)
Im aktuellen System kommt Wissenschaftsverlagen eine doppelte Monopolstellung zu – sowohl gegenüber Autor_innen als auch gegenüber Abnehmer_innen ihrer Produkte (Unis, Forschungsinstitutionen, Einzelpersonen), und mit fatalen ethischen Konsequenzen. (2/18)
Gegenüber den Autor_innen ergibt sich die Monopolstellung daraus, dass diese auf Publikationen angewiesen sind, um im von zu wenig Stellen und prekären Verhältnissen geprägten Wissenschaftssystem überhaupt Karrierechancen zu haben. (3/18)

New article with @sostapel:
'Cooperation and Conflict at the #HornOfAfrica: A New Regional Bloc between #Ethiopia, #Eritrea & #Somalia and Its Consequences for #EasternAfrica' #HoAC
In: #AfricaSpectrum (@GIGA_Institute; @SAGECQPolitics) #openaccess…
In January 2020, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Somalia proposed to form a new regional bloc, occasionally referred to as the 'Horn of Africa Cooperation' (HoAC). The proposed the HoAC would be the 23rd (!) #RegionalOrganization in #Africa. #regimecomplexity #HornOfAfricaCooperation
Our article assesses which factors have contributed to making this proposal and contemplates potential effects for the complex #security challenges, political tensions among the neighbours, and existing institutional environment at the Horn and the #EasternAfrica.

A very telling interview with Czech PM Andrej Babis textbook illustration for (technocratic) populism.…

A shorts thread on technocratic populism using AB quotes to illustrate some relevant aspects of TP. 1/12
Three elements are crucial on TP:
1) combines populist and technocratic appeal;
2) transcends LR politics (but not centrist);
3) strategically combines populist and technocratic discourse (communication) and substance (policies) 2/12.
technocratic governance: "The Czech administration historically lacked rational decision-making and long-term planning; our government, for example, was the first to plan all necessary investments for the next 30 years." 3/12

The #COVID19 pandemic has led to a number of questionable research practices which a full adherence to #openscience could have avoided. Researchers, co-sign if you agree.
Please RT! #openaccess #OpenSource
The pandemic has seen a surge in the number of preprints shared but also in the number of questionable practices that helped the sharing of unvalidated findings and dangerous claims about potential treatments.
We thus decided to check the COVID-19 literature for some of the issues we thought could plague it. We looked for potential editorial conflicts of interest in the fast-track reviews, or the share of preprints in the media.

Ob zu einer modernen #Pandemie immer ein paar Spinner gehören, die alles in Frage stellen?

Weil #Querdenken & #Coronarebellen gerade trenden, lohnt es sich vielleicht, mal in die Vergangenheit zu schauen.

Ein Thread
Auch wenn zur Zeit alle nur von der einen Pandemie reden, so sollte doch nicht vergessen werden, dass eine andere Pandemie nach wie vor jährlich hunderttausende Todesopfer weltweit fordert. Klar, die Rede ist von AIDS/HIV 2/

Das für AIDS verantwortliche HI-Virus wurde in den 80igern von den französischen Virologen Françoise Barré-Sinoussi & Luc Montagnier & fast gleichzeitig auch von Robert Gallo in den USA entdeckt

there are a number of really interesting ideas in @NZGreens election #housing proposals (@TheGreenParty take notes) 1/n
the housing WarrantOfFitness (WoF) for rental is one. Bit like an EPC but expanded to damp etc. Riffs off the WoF for cars (which is actually pretty lax: emissions tests NZ global dumpster for polluting cars, whole other thread) #openaccess research 👉…
another is a commitment to put PV & batteries in all suitable state homes 👉"virtual power stations". Maybe @solarcityNZ is lining up for that. Could substantially decouple energy habits from grid demand. #flexibility at scale @energyotago @JTorriti @CREDS_UK

Welcome back! The five freedoms of animal welfare focuses on reduction of harms, but there have been some key developments in animal welfare science over the last decade that have seen this concept overtaken. Anyone care to guess what they are?
Over the last 10-15yrs we have learned a lot more about how the brains of animals work, hormones their bodies produce in response to different situations, how aware they are of themselves and others, and how they differ individually #animalwelfare #science
Scientists now recognise evidence that many animals have ‘affective states’ (feelings!) - they not only experience -ve things like pain, but also +ve things like comfort and contentment. The framework we now use for assessing animal welfare recognises this across five key areas.

Our interdisciplinary work on the role of mechanochemical crosstalk in mitotic spindle orientation is finally out!… A collaboration between the @lab_baum, Salbreux Lab, @Franze_Lab, and Piel Lab
#openaccess @CurrentBiology
I would like to thank all the people involved and the community! @pragya_srivas @AgChaigne @zawforthewin @lanky_oscar @BaumBuzz
Here is a quick summary of our findings:
Animal cells round up when they divide in mitosis, but they are still able to orient their division axis..
..according to their shape prior to mitosis. Beautiful papers from @ManuelTHERY and others showed that this could be explained by a memory effect due to extrinsic cell-substrate adhesions that can pattern force generators at the cortex, which pull the mitotic spindle..

In welcher Gesellschaft wollen wir 2048 leben? Und wie kommen wir dahin?

Mit @NeueOekonomie und sehr vielen Expert*innen arbeiten wir seit zwei Jahren an einer sozial-ökologischen Vision für eine #Zukunftfueralle. Jetzt erscheint sie als Buch. #openaccess und mit Crowdfunding /1 Image
Stell Dir vor, es ist das Jahr 2048.
Wie bewegst Du Dich fort?
Was isst Du?
Wie verbringst Du Deine Zeit?
Wie und was arbeitet Du?
Und über deine eigene Situation hinaus – wie könnte diese Zukunft aussehen?
Wie kann sie gerecht, ökologisch und machbar sein – für alle? /2
Das Buch »Zukunft für alle« zeigt mögliche Antworten auf diese Fragen auf und stellt basierend auf den Ergebnissen von zwölf Zukunftswerkstätten mit knapp 200 Vordenker*innen eine Vision für das Jahr 2048 dar. /3 Image

🛑 Petites explications sur les tests en statistique pour montrer ce qui se cache derrière le feuilleton sur l’hydroxychloroquine et l’IHU de Marseille.

#Raoult #covid19 #coronavirus #économie #science #santé #vaccin #MondeAprès #commissiondenquete #macron
Un test statistique sert à savoir si les données d’une expérience scientifique (essai clinique, …), comme par exemple de savoir si on peut guérir de la Covid19 avec l’hydroxychloroquine et l’azithromycine (HCQ-AZ), sont cohérentes.
Si, pour 10 patients atteints de Covid19, je traite 5 patients avec HCQ-AZ et 5 avec des soins standards, et qu’il a 3 patients qui guérissent dans le groupe HCQ-AZ et 2 patients qui guérissent dans le deuxième groupe ; je peux supposer que HCQ-AZ fonctionne.

1/ Hi. I’m a cultural anthropologist. Can we talk about the “culture” part of #CancelCulture?
2/A lot of talk about #CancelCulture focuses on whether “cancelling” is a real phenomenon, whether it’s new, and whether it is il/liberal. But few have asked the question, why call cancelling a culture? So let’s revisit Anthro101
3/The term culture is notoriously difficult to define, doubly so for modern anthropologists who are often reluctant to use the much-critiqued word. (Spoiler: the reason anthros avoid it is the reason critics of #cancelculture use it).
