IEEE Introduces Open Access ‘Mega-Journal’
IEEE is seeking to increase the impact that scientific research can have on technology innovation with its first online, open access (OA) "mega journal"—a journal that covers a range of disciplines instead of a single-topic focus. IEEE Access provides free online access to applications-oriented articles, meaning they explain how research can be applied in technology today. The journal is designed to appeal as much to industry as it does to academia while using a faster peer-reviewed process that maintains high article quality.
F1000Research Aims to Reduce Publication Bias
Open access life sciences journal, F1000Research, is taking a stand to reduce positive bias in the publication record, urging scientists to publish all valid results, including negative and null findings. From now until the end of August 2013, F1000Research is waiving its article-processing fees on all articles that present negative or null results.

by Paula J. Hane
Over the years, I've migrated from one web browser to another as needs and changing technology dictated. For me, that's included Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, and my latest browser of choice, Google Chrome. Once I adopted Chrome—on both my PC and my Android phone—I began to encounter all manner of browser extensions that have offered me enhanced functionality. I'd like to share some of these treasures that have improved the browser experience for me. There are similar extensions for Firefox and other browsers, but I'll focus on those I use on Chrome.
