November 2012 Archives

Although there's strong interest in open access as the future of anthropological publishing, it isn't free. One of the best models for digital publishing is PLOS One but as their website indicates, they charge authors $1350 for publishing an article, and some of the other journals in their portfolio charge up to $2900. There are waivers available.

PLOS Biology US$2900

PLOS Medicine US$2900

PLOS Computational Biology
US$2250

PLOS Genetics US$2250

PLOS Pathogens US$2250

PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases
US$2250

PLOS ONE US$1350

A note for Karen: One of the open source programs for open access journals is: http://pkp.sfu.ca/?q=ojs

In general, I like the new Mac OS versions but the one thing I don't like is that applications like MS Word open up all my old documents when they start up again. Here's how to stop it:

Type the following in terminal:

defaults write com.microsoft.Powerpoint NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool false
defaults write com.microsoft.Word NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool false
defaults write com.microsoft.Excel NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool false

Very user unfriendly. Poops.
