Malta, Penguins, Clinical Research, More: Morning Buzz, September 30th, 2014

The University of Malta will launch an online institutional repository. “This online archive will collect, preserve and disseminate a variety of scholarly material produced under the University’s auspices. National intellectual output and heritage will also be accepted for submission to the archive.”

Many thanks to Saundra F. who gave me a heads-up on the ClinRegs Web site. “Welcome to ClinRegs, an online database of country-specific clinical research regulatory information designed to save time and effort in planning and implementing clinical research. Use the map feature above to obtain a digestible overview of a country’s regulatory requirements, and use the comparison search tool to view two countries’ requirements side-by-side.” ClinRegs is a subset of the NIH.gov site.

Wolfram|Alpha has launched “Tweet a Program”. “Compose a tweet-length Wolfram Language program, and tweet it to @WolframTaP. Our Twitter bot will run your program in the Wolfram Cloud and tweet back the result.”

Google is now 16. You can get nostalgic with all its Google logos.

Yahoo has issued a new transparency report.

New project at Zooniverse! It wants you to spot the penguin.

A digital edition of the entire Warren Commission Report is now available. “The Government Printing Office today released a digital version of the entire Warren Commission report on the assassination of President John. F. Kennedy to commemorate the 50 years since the printed version of the report first rolled off the agency’s presses.”

As spotted by Google Operating System, a new interface for Google Takeout.

It’s often far afield of ResearchBuzz topics, but Smashing Magazine publishes very interesting articles: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a WordPress host. If you’ve ever wondered what the difference between shared hosting, managed hosting, virtual private servers, etc. this article is for you.

Interesting: The Marketer’s Guide to Facebook Graph Search.

The Interactive Advertising Bureau is going to launch a “tech lab” (PRESS RELEASE). “The IAB Tech Lab will spearhead the development of technical standards, create a code library to assist in rapid, cost-effective implementation of IAB standards, and establish a test platform for companies to evaluate the compatibility of their technology solutions with IAB standards, which for 18 years have been the foundation for interoperability and profitable growth in the digital advertising supply chain.”

I love your comments, I love your site suggestions, and I love you. Feel free to comment on the blog, or @ResearchBuzz on Twitter. Thanks!
