DOI:10.1515/iwp-2018-0021 Zusammenfassung Taucht das Wort „Wissenschaft“ im Zusammenhang mit Big Data auf, denkt man zumeist an Wissenschaftler, die durch findige Analysen treffsichere Prognosen über zukünftige Entwicklungen, Ereignisse und Handlungen fällen – oder aber mit chirurgischer Präzision […]

Microsoft acquires GitHub

As The Verge reports Microsoft acquires GitHub. According to The Verge GitHub was „last valued at $2 billion back in 2015, but it’s not clear exactly how much Microsoft has paid to acquire GitHub.“ The Verge also considers the purchase as a promotion of Microsoft’s open source strategy and suspects the acquisition could meet mistrust […]

What is the relationship between Springer Nature & Frontiers?

Elsevier kauft Social Science Research Network

Laut einer Pressemitteilung des Social Science Research Network (SSRN) wurde der Dienst von Elsevier aufgekauft: http://www.ssrn.com/en/index.cfm/ssrn-joins-mendeley-elsevier/. Während Springer anscheinend (s. die Fusion mit Nature) eher auf die Ausweitung des konventionellen Verlagsgeschäfts setzt, orientiert sich der Springer-Konkurrent Elsevier (neben der auch bei Springer anzutreffenden Beteiligung an Open-Access-Konsortien) eher an Innovationen und Communities. Darauf deutet, zumindest für mich, […]
