Evaluation of an Experimental Chemistry Preprint Server
Wendy A. Warr
Paper given at the Sixth International Meeting on Chemical Structures, Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands, June 2-6, 2002. Will appear in the March/April 2003 issue of J. Chem. Inf. Comput. Sci.
A preprint is a research article made publicly available prior to formal publication. A preprint server is a freely available archive and distribution medium for preprints, allowing rapid dissemination, and use of multimedia and supporting files. Electronic eprints have been widely adopted in certain fields (notably high energy physics) but, until recently, the preprint concept has not been received with enthusiasm by most chemists. Despite the fact that preprints have the advantage of rapid publication, chemists have been reluctant to produce them because they could be viewed as “unallowable” for research assessment or tenure exercises or for publication in certain prestigious journals. In theory, preprints, together with version control and online discussion, could be a useful compromise: rapid pre-publication followed by open peer review, before publication in a traditional journal. This paper constitutes a preliminary evaluation of a Chemistry Preprint Server in its second year of operation and summarizes the lessons that can be learned from the experiment to date.
From Virtual Communities to Portals in the Post-Dotcom Era
Wendy A. Warr
In Proceedings of the 2002 International Chemical Information Conference; Collier, H., Ed.; Infonortics: Tetbury, 2002, pp. 113-126.
“It is interesting to see that a subject area that a few years ago grew out of the unstructured worlds of chat and bulletin boards, is now finding such an important rôle in mainstream organisations and corporations. At last, organisations are finding that what was a fringe activity is rapidly becoming central to planning involving knowledge management with groups of staff or customers.”
Harry Collier, Infonortics, 2002
Are public virtual communities in the physical sciences (as opposed to corporate intranets) really coming of age? The start-up communities of 5 years ago still seem to attract members but there have been distinct changes. Are they indeed communities, or are they portals? Are they yet profitable? Will they ever be (indeed, need they be)? Have their business models changed? Have they become any more focused? Perhaps competition has appeared in the form of other services on the Net: how have the communities responded? Is there really any demand for the virtual community as dreamed of in the mid-1990s?
