MARIUS BULIGA

     
     
ABOUT ME: I practice Open Science. Really open, take a look:
  • I explain my point of view about OS in an interview presented as: "a researcher who started doing "open science" even before the term was actually coined".
  • The chemlambda collection on Google+ was featured by Google and viewed more than 46 million times. According to public sources, that means anywhere in between 200 and 2000 times more views than my whole institution (IMAR) views from outside Romania. It contains more than 300 animations obtained from simulations with the programs from the Chemlambda repository, which can be independently validated by using the Library of chemlambda molecules. Behind this collection there are about 50GB of data gathered (and counting).
The distribution of my work is the following: I have a mostly research wordpress.com blog/open notebook with more than 600 articles.
     

     
VALIDATION vs PEER-REVIEW: There is no rational doubt that it is technically possible to replace peer-review, which is a social form of validation, by a more rigorous version: give all to the reader, proofs, programs, data and let the reader form an opinion based on that. As an example is this experimental GitHub article which "runs in the browser" and comes with all means for validation: Molecular computers. That is why I believe that GitHub, for example, already answered, in principle, to the question: how will we collaborate, communicate, do research in the Net era?
     

     
I signed the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), as well as The Cost of Knowledge.
     
If you care about which licence to use for your work, then CC BY 4.0 International is a good choice, because it forbids downstream restrictions on the dissemination of your work. Any licence which does the same is as good as this one. Truth is that licences become less important than DRM, which controls the ways the reader has access to the licensed work.
     

     
MORE: I have a Habilitation à diriger des recherches en Sciences Mathématiques (download the thesis), (diploma scan), USTL (Lille I), France (2007). Romanian Ministry of Education, as well as all other local research or education institutions, do not recognize habilitations from other EU countries, but recently the ministry invented it's own habilitation procedure. I do not wish to "rehabilitate" myself. See also my Scholar profile.
     

     
Announcement: there exists an encoding of chemlambda molecules with RNA, in such a way that the chemlambda model can be realized via real RNA computing. I open a bidding session concerning a contract based collaboration which could convince me that you're an expert and you can provide me with the means to do this together. As concerns the collaboration, I shall give you an edge into being the first who does it. Letters of interest may be addressed to Marius.Buliga@gmail.com, Marius.Buliga@imar.ro or via the chemlambda repository (gh-pages branch). Follow this page for updates.
