Princeton University Faculty Commit to Open Access
by Barbara Quint
The open access movement (OA) continues to add allies as the faculties of major universities, from which so much scholarship originates, join the cause. The latest addition to dozens of other higher education institutions with OA policies in place is Princeton University. The Faculty Advisory Committee on Policy of the Ivy League school unanimously agreed to a proposal recommended by the nine-member Ad-hoc Faculty Committee to study Open Access, set up in late 2010. Although details and procedures for implementing the policy have still to be worked out, the policy requires all faculty to ensure copies of their articles are available for public access.

Mine the Web Like a Journalist
by Paula J. Hane
I recently had the opportunity to sit in on two webinars aimed at journalists. One was sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism, titled "Beyond Google: Mining the Web for Company Intelligence." The other was a "LinkedIn for Journalists" training session, which is offered frequently by Krista Canfield, senior manager of corporate communications at LinkedIn. Both proved to be well worth my time. I thought I might share some of the best suggestions I picked up that are applicable for many researchers, journalists or not.
