Collaborating Indigenous Languages with Science Communication

There is no denying that English is one of the world’s most celebrated languages and has been adopted by nearly 370million people. In journals and book chapters, English is most frequently used.

The major dilemma is about the billions of people who can speak very little English or none at all. The primary concern is how they can learn and improve their knowledge in the field of scientific information.

An initiative named Imagine project, aims to spread scientific knowledge to rural and indigenous communities. The Imagine project has been created at the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil.

The combination of knowledge and communication will lead to a healthy social and technological development. Hence, it is imperative for researchers to share their findings with ordinary people.

Open-access Journals Are Valuable To Transform Science

open accessMichael Eisen, an acclaimed biologist at UC Berkeley and co-founder of the Public Library of Science, has resolved to change the way scientific findings are circulated. His PLOS publishes some of the widest and most prestigious academic papers in the world. He aims to provide open access, meaning anyone having internet connection can read them for free. Currently, most research papers are locked behind paywalls, and unlocking those documents costs hundreds of dollars per article. This prevents the general public and scientists from being updated about new researches although they are funded by U.S. taxpayers. PLOS has started an initiative called open science movement to break up the academic publishing conglomerate.

Advantages of sharing your work

research sharing

To make your work stand out and enable it to reach large audience, you must be willing to share your research and your findings. This will help your research receive more attention in the fraternity and prompt new thoughts and advancements in the particular field of research. Read on to discover the best methods for sharing your work at each stage of production.

In the pre-submission stage

The proverb with preprints is “whenever, wherever”! You are allowed to share your preprints on any platform, whenever you want. Once your article is published, you are required to link the preprint to the formal publication by means of the article’s digital object identifier (DOI). Such links will enable your readers to access, cite, and utilize the best variant of your work. However, preprints should not be added to or upgraded in any way to make it a substitute for the previous forms of your articles.

After acceptance

Regarding accepted manuscripts, the golden rule is that you can share your research openly after the journals’ embargo time frame. You can quickly store your acknowledged manuscript copy in your establishment’s storehouse for inward use and then sit tight for the ban time frame to elapse before everybody can access it. In this process of sharing, you need to provide a link to the formal production through the DOI. Furthermore, the paper you share should bear a CC-BY-NC-ND permit.

At last, as with preprints, the paper must not be added to or upgraded in any capacity to make it a substitute for the distributed journal article.

After Publication

The approaches for sharing published journal articles (PJAs) differ for membership and open access articles, so you must ensure that the method is in keeping with the kind of article you are distributing.

If your article is a membership article, you can share the article or the links to the article through email, social media, own blog/website for non-commercial and internal purposes. The more links there are to your article from significant sources, more readers you’ll draw in and the higher it will show up in internet search results. In case your article is distributed open access, anybody can peruse your article. The reuse permit you select will decide how others can reuse your article and where you can post it.
