On-line journal facility

I have decided to make my other blog "oseanografi" (in Indonesia languange) has an "up to date" and good content in oceanography from many aspects. So far, I just write articles in this blog based on the the text books or my experiences.

Now, living in Hamburg, I can access almost on-line international journals in oceanography for FREE because the Institute where I work for my PhD. subscribes to those online journals . I always try to read one paper everyday to get "up to date" information about oceanography. I think it will more useful for others if I can make article about what I've read and publish it in my oceanography blog (of course I will not just translate the paper to Indonesia language because of copyright issue).

So far, based on my experience, it is quite diffficult to get new scientific papers about oceanography in Indonesia library. Sometime, when I was in Indonesia, I have to contact my friends in Japan or somewhere else in developed countries to help me downloading the papers that I need and send them by e-mail. Of course, based on the policy from the publisher, this kind of "friend to friend order" is not allowed, but how can poor student like my self order the papers for $9.0/paper? In some cases, if the writers still have the copy, I can contact them and ask for the copy or digital form of their papers.

Well, I think, "famous" universities in Indonesia -such as ITB, UI, etc.- should think about give "up to date" on-line journal facility to their researchers, lectures staff, and students. On the other hand, students who have paid much money for their study should ask for it also to their university. Logically, how can they paid much money but got scientific facility in "minimalist" style, while their teachers also sometime very busy with their "private" projects and neglected their main job as teacher (honestly, I don't like this kind teachers!).

berbahasa eng?

oh maaf saya tak bakal mengerti!

BTW buat di wordpress.com saja pak, kalau di blogger susah komennya :)


kalau bisa buat 2 bhs in dan en , biar kalau ntar ane diajak mancing ama teman bisa baca2 disini dulu, untuk menentukan arah angin keberuntungan hiyaaaaaa

I'm thinkin about ITB's Digilib. How is it going ?

I put a lot of interest on it. (Hopefully it can be extended as digital libraries for Indonesia campus network)

ah setuju sekali... biar gampang cari referensi lokal buat bahan penelitian neh...

btw, analisa buat puisi Nda okeh juga tuh *kedips* thx ucapannya ya.. bulan Juli ada di Bandung gag?

@kusaeni:
Hahaha, angin keberuntungan ya? kalau masuk angin karena angin keberuntungan, pas dikerokin yang keluar pasti bukan warna merah ya tapi keberuntungan...

@andry:
Yes, I know also about ITB's Digilib and I think you can access the online library via this link.

I fully agree with you that education and research institutions in Indonesia should have open network for digital library.

@vi3:
Bulan Juli saya masih di Hamburg. Lho katanya nikahnya bulan Juni 2006, koq nanyanya Juli? hehehe...

Ya. Digilib juga tadinya cita2nya mo jadi Indonesian Campus Network Libraries. So far blom keliatan. Knp? Kayaknya budaya nulis gak ada di orang2 kita Indon. Itu termasuk saya juga. Klo masalah budaya nulis, coba deh liat artikelnya Budi Rahardjo di blognya. Aku yg baca aja agak2 tersentil. Hehehehe...

Bukti. Sampe sekarang aja daku gak pernah nyumbang topik Geologi+Geodesi berdasarkan apa yg pernah dikerjain ke Digilib. Sibuk nge-keep sendiri. Pelit? Iya. Gw nyarinya dan ngerjainnya setengah modar. Hahahaha...

Di beberapa kampus luar yg pernah aku kunjungin dan pernah aku kontak (sehubungan masalah kerjaan) perpustakaan mereka selalu nerbitin semacam intisari penelitian. Isinya cuman abstraksi doang. Lupa aku istilahe apa. Klo ada topik terkait tinggal masukin nomer ISBN trus bayar. Juga bisa milih mau full researh ato yg sekilas info biar murah. Biasanya aku milih sekilas info. Idenya ketangkep trus eksplor sendiri.

Ini utk menghindari kasus spt Mas Agus yg 9 dolar/paper.


Summer in qassim is hot but in winter it usually rains and weatheris beautiful.
