The Case for a Publishing Analytics Data Alliance
Digital technology is making it possible for publishers and libraries to gather data on the dissemination and use of scholarly publications in unprecedented detail and on an unprecedented scale. While data arising from the digital distribution of content provides new opportunities for understanding the scholarly communication ecosystem, it also creates socio-technical challenges for understanding how scholarly content is shared and used across networked knowledge landscapes. Libraries and institutions will require the context that aggregate data can provide to effectively use the data they collect, but they will be unable to create this context alone. This risks leaving the collection of data in the hands of a small number of well-resourced organizations—likely commercial—that do not answer to the community. The proposed Publishing Analytics Data Alliance will serve as a cooperative in which representatives from all of the relevant academic publishing stakeholder groups (academic publishers, research libraries, research centers, and aggregators) collaborate to address the socio-technical challenges around publishing analytics: developing a data model, workflows, and prototype for aggregation and display of usage data relating to digital monographs, and creating an accompanying code of ethics and terms of use for data gathering, analysis, and dissemination by members. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc826650/

The Reaction Kinetics of Amino Radicals with Sulfur Dioxide
Abstract: Application of the laser photolysis–laser-induced fluorescence method to the reaction NH2 + SO2 in argon bath gas yields pressure-dependent, third-order kinetics which may be summarized as 𝑘 = (1.49 ± 0.15) × 10^−31 (𝑇/298 K) − 0.83 cm^6 molecule^−2 s^−1 over 292 – 555 K, where the uncertainty is the 95% confidence interval and includes possible systematic errors.The quenching of vibrationally excited NH2 is consistent with a high-pressure limit for NH2 + SO2 of (1.62 ± 0.25) × 10^−11 cm^3 molecule^−1 s^−1 over the temperature range 295–505 K, where again the 95% confidence interval is shown. Abinitio analysis yields a H2N – SO2 dissociation enthalpy of 73.5 kJmol−1, and comparison with RRKM theory and the exponential down model for energy transfer yields ⟨Δ𝐸⟩down = 350 cm^−1 for Ar at room temperature. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc801965/
