Open access – Preaches and practices

By Balázs Horváth. Published on 22 September 2015 in:
September 2015, ,

“Publish or perish” is a well-known catch-phrase in academic circles. In accordance with the exponential information we live in (i.e. Big Data or Moore’s Law), scientific publication has undergone a drastic change in the last few decades. To be successful, researchers are forced to publish as many of their results in prestigious peer-reviewed journals as they can. Bibliometrics and scientometrics are being used to determine the value of scientific work.

Events, September 2015, ,

The 22nd international colloquium on magnetic films [ICMFS-2015] and surfaces took place from 12-17 July 2015 in Kraków, Poland. ICMFS-2015 continues the tradition of previous colloquia started in 1964 in London and brings together scientists from all areas of magnetism in lower dimensions. The Colloquium aims at exchange of new results and ideas for advancing the field of magnetism at surfaces, interfaces, in micro- and nanostructures as well as of spin-dependent phenomena.

The state of physics in the United Kingdom

By David Sands. Published on 24 January 2014 in:
January 2014, News, , ,

The Institute of Physics [IOP] in the United Kingdom [UK] has just released a report detailing a wealth of statistical data about staffing levels in UK physics departments between 2003-2004 and 2011-2012. Higher education in the UK has expanded enormously in the last 20 years or so and this data captures some of that expansion in the growth of staff numbers. The headline figures show that staffing levels in higher education have increased by 21% since 2003-2004 with physics staff increasing by 20%. This is quite impressive given that a lot of expansion has occurred in the newer universities that do not teach physics and at the same time a number of physics departments have closed…
