Employing Authentic Analytics for More Authentic Tasks

Work in progress: The impact of using LATEX for academic writing: A Peruvian engineering students' perspective

The benefits of using the typesetting software LATEX in research courses of two engineering programs from the Sciences and Humanities University (UCH) in Lima, Peru are shown and the head of the engineering department at the UCH is suggested to make use of this tool a compulsory one in all such courses.

From Open Access to Open Science: The Path From Scientific Reality to Open Scientific Communication

Although opening up of research is considered an appropriate and trend-setting model for future scientific communication, it can still be difficult to put open science into practice. How open and

Which Are the Tools Available for Scholars? A Review of Assisting Software for Authors during Peer Reviewing Process

A curated list of 220 software tools was completed using a crowdfunded database (AlternativeTo) to identify relevant programs and ongoing trends and perspectives of tools developed and used by scholars.

DEVELOPING AN OPEN-SOURCE- FRAMEWORK FOR A MULTI-LAYER NARRATIVE IN ONLINE PUBLISHING

This paper proposes a concept for a multi-layer design, which is capable of including both interactive elements and a comprehensive data-layer in a scientific report, and suggests working with an output-independent format and a modular compiler to generate various output formats.

Using Free/Libre and Open Source Software in the Geological Sciences

In the Geological Sciences, as in any other academic field, computers and software aided work are essential tools. Although Free and Open Source software is largely used in academic institutions for

Our path to better science in less time using open data science tools

Several free software tools have fundamentally upgraded the authors' approach to collaborative research, making their entire workflow more transparent and streamlined, and it is hoped this will encourage others in the scientific community to do the same so they can all produce better science in less time.
