If You have Used the #Memstorm Hashtag on Twitter, Please Take My Survey

Sorry the formatting looks a little bit funny here. I would sure appreciate your participation! I will also be asking a few folks who I know have been very active in using the hashtag to consider doing an interview. If you are an active hashtag user and would like to volunteer for an interview, please contact me in the comments or @brizzyc on Twitter.

Open Access Academic Journals in Journalism and Mass Communication

A few weeks ago, danah boyd posted an excellent rant urging professors to fight the knowledge cartels otherwise known as the high-profit-margin industry of academic publishing by taking our work to open-access journals, thus breaking “the corporate stranglehold over scholarly knowledge in order to make your knowledge broadly accessible.”

I already commented on her post with my agreement and thoughts, but it occurred to me that I didn’t really know much about open-access journals in my field. Quite possibly I’m an idiot for not already knowing this, but part of the problem is that I’m not a publishing machine like some in my cohort. But I polled some smarter folks than I and I’m posting a list here. If you know more, holler in the comments.
