There will be another FREE physics lecture, “Public Science in the Digital Age,” given by Professor Paul Ginsparg [hard G], Cornell University, at 6:30 PM Thursday, July 11th in Paepcke Auditorium, behind the music tent.
Professor Ginsparg, who designed arXiv [archive], the open-access science archive while here at the Aspen Center for Physics in the 1990s, will recall highlights of the open access debate. With nearly a million open-access articles in the repository, and hundreds of millions of full-text downloads each year, arXiv serves as the primary daily information feed for global communities of researchers in physics, mathematics, computer science, and related fields. It also serves as the prototype for modern open access systems that disseminate medical and scientific research results. In June, Ginsparg was named a “White House Champion of Change”.
