My thesis pdf: "A consumer value theory of innovation in 3G mobile phones" arrived Friday on the University of Queensland library catalogue ://lib.cat eSpace: http://espace.library.uq.edu.au/view/UQ:290360
But I was disappointed to see that the pdf file was only available to UQ staff and students, though it was great to see 7 downloads before I even knew that the catalogue entry was online.... So I set it free (CC-BY)
One of the benefits of Figshare is:
- the allocation of a DOI : http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.680002
A DOI is a permanent identifier and a custodian who promises to always make it available for the foreseeable future...
- a second benefit is that I put into action, with my own research, my work at ANDS to promote better research data management, sharing and reusing of data. In other words, I practice what I preach.
- a third benefit is I put a licence on my thesis: it is now released as CC-BY, which means I have shared the copyright with the world, so long as I am cited as the author, and the work is not commercialised.
