http://www.answers.com/

For readers with an insatiable appetite for trivia, knowledge, and answers to questions of all kinds, Answers.com can be considered either a giant time suck or a small marvel of the information age. Readers can use the site in several ways. First, they may type a question into the search box at the top of the page and click “Go.” For instance, entering “why is the sky blue?” returns an answer from an author named RUClimate which has received 33.9K “confidence votes,” meaning that over 30 thousand people found the answer worth reading. Thematic headings (Lifestyle, Food, Politics, and more) provide another way to explore the site, or readers can simply meander through the categories of their own choosing (Sports, Science, Animal Life, etc.). One caveat: there are ads on the site, and sometimes they can be a bit flashy. This will be added to Internet Experts Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Tutorial Resources Subject Tracer™.

OpenDepot.org – Worldwide Open Access Research Output

OpenDepot.org – Worldwide Open Access Research Output
http://opendepot.org/

The purpose of OpenDepot.org is to ensure that all academics worldwide can share in the benefits of making their research output Open Access. For those whose universities and organisations have an online repository, OpenDepot.org makes them easy to find. For those without a local repository, including unaffilitiated researchers, the OpenDepot is a place of deposit, available for others to harvest. They have tried to make OpenDepot.org easy or researchers and authors to use. It technical terms, OpenDepot.org does the following: a) accepts deposit of e-prints from researchers at institutions that do not currently have an Institutional Repository (IR). The principal target is postprints, that is articles that have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication; b) as Institutional Repositories (IRs) are established, OpenDepot.org will support the transfer of relevant content to help populate those new IRs; c) an OAI-compliant interface, so, like other open access repositories, its contents is available for harvesting; and d) re-directs depositors to an appropriate Institutional Repository (IR). Like the Depot, which is an earlier version of OpenDepot.org, they use OpenDOAR and ROAR as the source for information about available repositories worldwide, and they use ROMEO as a source of information about publisher polices. The re-direct function uses technology being developed alongside the JISC-funded OA Repository Junction project, which is providing machine-to-machine mechanism for deposit into multiple institutional repositories.

PRISONER – Framework for Running Ethical and Reproducible Social Network Experiments

PRISONER – Framework for Running Ethical and Reproducible Social Network Experiments
http://prisoner.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk/

Consent goes beyond signing a form. PRISONER helps you run studies which communicate clearly to participants how your experiment handles their data, and has built-in support for minimising and sanitising their data. Automatically generate meaningful consent forms and supporting documentation for IRB approval, and help us raise the standard of social network research. Collecting data from social network sites is easy. Doing this in a way others can reproduce tomorrow, or in five years, is hard. PRISONER helps you archive and share your experimental workflows and data. Sharing is caring, and it helps your work get the citations it deserves. PRISONER is free and open source. We currently support Facebook, Twitter, and Last.fm, but it’s easy to add support for other social network sites. Support the community by contributing support for other services, more privacy-preserving transformations, and other extensions to the framework. PRISONER is a project of researchers at the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews, supported by the EPSRC. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
