Open access for the non-English-speaking world: overcoming the language barrier

Open access for the non-English-speaking world: overcoming the language barrier

This editorial highlights the problem of language barrier in scientific communication in spite of the recent success of Open Access Movement. Four options for English-language journals to overcome the language barrier are suggested: 1) abstracts in alternative languages provided by authors, 2) Wiki open translation, 3) international board of translator-editors, and 4) alternative language version of the journal. The Emerging Themes in Epidemiology announces that with immediate effect, it will accept translations of abstracts or full texts by authors as Additional files. Editorial note: In an effort towards overcoming the language barrier in scientific publication, ETE will accept translations of abstracts or the full text of published articles. Each translation should be submitted separately as an Additional File in PDF format. ETE will only peer review English-language versions. Therefore, translations will not be scrutinized in the review-process and the responsibility for accurate translation rests with the authors.

    Thursday, 24th July 2014

    Information assets are in the hands of the right people to safeguard them but the wrong people to manage their exploitation concludes an influential new study. As reports continue to emerge of apparent corporate paralysis in the face of cyber security threats, Tim Buckley Owen wonders whether the emphasis hasn't swung too far in that direction, and sees opportunities for information professionals in helping to strike a balance between security in the cloud and effective data analysis for competitive advantage.
