I have it down to do another teaser post to help convince folks that there’s loads of great stuff in The Gold OA Landscape 2011-2014, either paperback or site-licensed PDF ebook–but given that there’s only been one copy sold in November to date, and indeed only one since October 22, maybe that’s a waste of my energy.
That’s the non-update: the total continues to be nine paperback copies and two PDF ebooks, with five copies showing up in Worldcat.org. Special arrangements (grants, donations, consulting, etc.) unchanged.
Meanwhile: if you do want the paperback–or any or all of my other self-published books–you can buy them today and tomorrow (November 19, 2015) for 20% off using the coupon code PRESALE20
[Any time you do buy stuff at Lulu, check the home page: it should show current offers.]
And then there’s the Cites & Insights Annual edition for 2015; I’ve now received my copy (and modified the cover, since the title was a little too far down the page).
Here’s the skinny:
Volume 15 is 354 pages long (including table of contents and indices) and, as usual, $45 (or $36 today and tomorrow).
Highlights of this 11-issue volume include:
- Three full-issue essays related to Open Access: Economics, The Gold OA Landscape 2011-2014, and Ethics
- A fair use trilogy: Google Books, HathiTrust and miscellaneous topics
- More pieces of the OA puzzle, mostly leading up to The Gold OA Landscape
- The usual: Deathwatch, Ebooks & Pbooks; a eulogy to FriendFeed and some notes on Twitter; and more
And the indices that aren’t otherwise available.
The photo: the library at Ephesus–
a familiar view if you own Public Library Blogs: 252 Examples but this is a slightly different photo and a considerably larger view…
Oops: while Public Library Blogs: 252 Examples used a different picture of The Library At Ephesus, The Liblog Landscape 2007-2010 used the same picture–but much larger, with a little more touchup, and using Paint.net’s auto-equalization, which yielded a slightly different color range.
