45: Fred Rascoe - Coalition Smarty-Pants


Fred Rascoe from the Georgia Tech Library returns to the show to talk about the changing roles of libraries and scholarly publishing in the 21st century. Fred and Mike discuss why scholarly publishing has been so resistant to, really insulated from, change in the Internet era. They bat around ideas for business models that do not involve universities, companies, or the public paying for expensive journal subscriptions. Mike also makes the argument that peer review is not all it’s cracked up to be and Fred puts him in the hot seat, asking about his own publishing practices.Show details: • Hosted by Michael Filler (@michaelfiller) • Edited by Andrew Cannon (@andrewhcannon) • Recorded on September 13, 2018 • Show notes are available at http://www.fillerlab.com/nanovation/archive/45• Submit feedback at http://www.fillerlab.com/nanovation/feedback

9: Fred Rascoe - Don’t put it on your CV


Fred Rascoe from the Georgia Tech Library joins the podcast to talk about the changing world of academic publishing. We discuss the existing paradigm, why it is under attack, and what we can expect going forward. Along the way, we somehow touch on vinyl records, mustaches, Mexican food, and Barbra Streisand. We round out the show with a potentially blasphemous question: can peer review (at the point of initial publication) be eliminated altogether?Show details: • Hosted and edited by Michael Filler (@michaelfiller) • Recorded on April 12, 2016 • Show notes are available at http://www.fillerlab.com/nanovation/archive/9 • Submit feedback at http://www.fillerlab.com/nanovation/feedback
