Blog sains: mendekatkan riset dengan masyarakat

Dua kutub dunia publikasi akademik

Masyarakat umum dan ilmuwan bagaikan dua kutub magnet yang saling berbenturan. Satu sisi sangat pragmatis dan satu sisi yang sangat teoritis. Tapi saat ini telah ada media blog sebagai salah satu bentuk media sosial yang memungkinkan seorang ilmuwan menjelaskan karyanya di luar koridor gaya penulisan makalah ilmiah yang sangat kaku, dengan gaya bahasa yang ringan dan mudah dipahami. Khalayak ramaipun dapat mengakses tulisan Sang Ilmuwan tanpa harus terintimidasi dengan keseriusan jurnal ilmiah. Output riset sendiri saat ini berlipat ganda setiap sembilan tahun. Sebanyak 2,5 juta makalah ilmiah diterbitkan dalam setahun. Anda dapat membayangkan 2,5 juta. Menurut anda, sebanyak apa dari ledakan ilmu pengetahuan itu yang pada akhirnya sampai kepada masyarakat, menjawab masalah riil.

Preprints, Arxiv and INARxiv (a view from Prof. Bryan Gaensler)

For some of you who are still skeptical or still having doubts about preprint and how it supports science, you might want to watch this video.

I found it while researching on research data management. It was posted under University of Sydney Library channel.

Some strong sentences about preprints were mentioned by this speaker, Prof. Bryan Gaensler, an astronomer now with University of Toronto.

Here are some of his strong points (some of which perhaps are applicable limited to the science of astronomy, physics and math):

  • Preprints support citation (in some field). Nobody bother to read journals anymore if they can read it on Arxiv three months earlier,
  • One step to promote your science is by putting your paper on Arxiv,
  • Posting preprints can lead to collaboration. So it’s not a paper before it went to Arxiv previously.

Here are some links on Prof. Bryan Gaensler:

You know what I like about persons like this one I’m presenting?

I like how he/she spends a lot of time to setup an outreach mechanism for his/her research. They look at impact way further than just a number listed as Impact Factor and citations.

But yeah, you don’t always agree with me. You could always go back to your Scopus indexing and IF hunts as you earn your way as famous academia.

And yes we run INARxiv the preprint server of Indonesia and read related articles on preprint and post print here Open Science Indonesia.
