Open Access Science

John Wilbanks, executive director of the Science Commons, and his colleagues are now focusing on access to the literature, obtaining materials, and sharing data. Science Commons recently introduced a set of tools to allow authors greater control over papers published in scientific journals.

This week, they have launched the Neurocommons project, an open-source research platform for brain studies. This system uses text-mining tools and analysis software to annotate millions of neurology papers, so that researchers worldwide can find relevant information in a matter of minutes. Other sciences will follow. Wilbanks spoke with Popular Science magazine about his vision for open access science.
