The Berlin Reader19 December

The Berlin Reader. A Compendium on Urban Change and Activism
Ed. by Matthias Bernt / Britta Grell / Andrej Holm

By drawing together widely dispersed yet central writings, the Berlin Reader is an essential resource for everyone interested in urban development in one of the most interesting and important metropolises in Europe. It provides scholars as well as students, journalists and visitors with an overview of the most central discussions on the tremendous changes Berlin experienced since the fall of the wall. It covers a wide range of issues, including inner city renewal, housing and the local economy, gentrification and other urban conflicts. The book breaks ground in two dimensions: first, by offering also non-German speakers an insight into the very controversial debates after reunification, and, second, by highlighting the ambivalent consequences of Berlin’s urban transformation in the past decades.

S’inscrivant dans le cadre du nouveau projet de l’Inist « Ingénierie des Connaissances 2014-2018 », les bases de données bibliographiques Francis et Pascal cesseront d’être alimentées au 31 décembre 2014.

Les archives Francis et Pascal constituées par plus de 22,5 millions de références seront par la suite ouvertes en libre accès au cours de l’année 2015. L’Inist négocie actuellement auprès de ses distributeurs (Ebsco, Ovid, ProQuest, STN), les modalités du maintien de ces archives sur les plates-formes dédiées afin d’assurer la continuité du service durant cette phase de transition, afin que celle-ci s’effectue dans les meilleures conditions.

What does “Open Access” to information mean? It includes not only free but also the immediate online access to the results of scholarly research as well as the right to use and re-use those results. Encouraged by the Open Access initiative, the successful movement has direct and widespread implications for academia, science, industry, and for society as a whole since.

From the 20th to the 26th October, the scientific community celebrates the increasing success of the Open Access movement with promoting events. We take that as a welcome occasion to make you aware of Orbilu – a major contribution to the Open Access movement in Luxembourg.

Orbilu is the portal of the University of Luxembourg to make the scientific publications of its researches accessible online for everyone and for free. The University of Luxembourg takes part in the Open Access movement with Orbilu since 2013.

By now, Orbilu contains about 8000 scientific publications.

Medal Nobel PrizeThe Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for 2014 to Jean Tirole “for his analysis of market power and regulation”.

Jean Tirole is one of the most influential economists of our time. He has made important theoretical research contributions in a number of areas, but most of all he has clarified how to understand and regulate industries with a few powerful firms.

Many industries are dominated by a small number of large firms or a single monopoly. Left unregulated, such markets often produce socially undesirable results – prices higher than those motivated by costs, or unproductive firms that survive by blocking the entry of new and more productive ones.

From the mid-1980s and onwards, Jean Tirole has breathed new life into research on such market failures. His analysis of firms with market power provides a unified theory with a strong bearing on central policy questions: how should the government deal with mergers or cartels, and how should it regulate monopolies? (Press Release Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences)
