Greetings:

The July/August 2012 issue of D-Lib Magazine (http://www.dlib.org/) is 
now available.

This issue is devoted to a single topic: making more effective use of 
traditional scientific publications. The eight articles this month have 
their origin at the 1st International Workshop on Mining Scientific 
Publications, held during JCDL 2012. The topics range from automatic 
metadata extraction for individual articles to automatically 
characterizing collections to automatic browsing hierarchy creation to 
innovative visualization techniques for navigating collections. Knoth, 
Zdrahal, and Juffinger, who organized the workshop, provide a guide to 
the articles in the Guest Editorial.

In addition, this issue contains three brief items in the 'In Brief' 
column, excerpts from recent press releases, and news of upcoming 
conferences and other items of interest in 'Clips and Pointers'.  This 
month, D-Lib features The Tapestries Called Sheldon collection.

Each mirror site has its own schedule for replicating D-Lib Magazine 
and, while most sites are quite responsive, on occasion there could be a 
delay of as much as 24 hours between the time the magazine is released 
in the United States and the time when the mirroring process has been 
completed.)

        From: Willard McCarty <willard.mccarty at mccarty.org.uk>
        Subject: The Fourth Paradigm

Of interest to people here will be a new book, published and provided online 
by Microsoft Research: Tony Hey, Stewart Tansley and Kristin Tolle, The 
Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Scientific Discovery (2009, 
research.microsoft.com/en-us/collaboration/fourthparadigm/default.aspx). 
The term "fourth paradigm" refers to computer scientist Jim Gray's 
proposal that in addition to theory, experiment and simulation as ways 
of doing science should be added data-intensive research. Of particular 
interest here will be section IV of the book, on Scholarly 
Communication, the first essay in which is Clifford Lynch's, on 
construction of the scientific record, followed by Paul Ginsparg's, 
"Text in a data-centric world".

Yours,
WM
