We really need a #failed project #archive in material science or at least #solar energy materials..
Its sad that all my #effort put into investigating a material goes wasted if it doesn't work.
It would be very nice if people are able to #publish their failed stuff and still get due credit...may be such an initiative also help overcome fear of publishing open access bcoz its a failed project..
Let's talk about #AcademicAnarchism
It would be interesting to have something similar to free software movement in #Academic publishing..
Conventional Open access journals do not offer any solution. It is not a choice to publish paying 1000s of dollars for a so called reputed 'open access' journal or settle to publish in an OA journal that no one reads..
Any ideas to cleverly circumvent the capitalist system in academics?
You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.
Put the channel's username in this address:
You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.
For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:
You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

Spain, new efforts on climate change Show more
#Spain's new #PSOE government is cancelling the "sun tax" that severely impaired solar power generation, and taking steps to ramp up its efforts against #climatechange https://www.southeusummit.com/europe/spain/new-spanish-government-to-prioritise-climate-change-policy/
Our paper on the effect of an element' s atomic mass in tuning the defects and properties of a #semiconductor is accepted now 😀
Also discusses how this would help create cheaper solar cells without additional charge extraction layers.

It was interesting how changing from Antimony to Bismuth in a #perovskite structure reduced conduction band side defects but increased valence band side defects !!
I now use #searx for all my web search.
@harikesh Regarding your point about "generally the most 'efficient' ...", this might be a better-worded statement than you intended, as I learned in environmental economics that mainstream models tend to not involve considerations of sustainability/externalities, so though they may point to "efficient" outcomes, those tend to be different from the "sustainable" and efficient outcomes. So there can be a choice that isn't often pointed to: efficient solution or efficient AND sustainable solution.

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
