Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) has begun a project to repair and rebuild the flood-damaged Bear Canyon Trail along the south boundary of the Mesa. Along with restoring the trail for hiking, the project will reestablish emergency vehicle access to the area. OSMP expects the project to take approximately six months to complete. During construction, portions of the Bear Canyon and Mesa Trails will be closed.

For more information on the project, including current trail closures, see http://www.bearcanyon.org/

This week two additional publishers are now requiring their authors to provide ORCID author identifiers. AGU began requiring author ORCIDs in March 2016, and now Wiley and the Royal Society of Chemistry have added this requirement:

  • The Royal Society: January 1, 2016
  • AGU: March 1, 2016
  • Science journals: March 11, 2016
  • IEEE: July 11, 2016
  • American Chemical Society: November 2, 2016
  • Wiley: November 28, 2016
  • Royal Society of Chemistry: November 30, 2016

The NCAR Library recommends that all authors who are concerned about proper reference citation register for an ORCID identifier. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and output. Numerous publishers have signed an open letter Requiring ORCID in Publication Workflows.

If you have questions or concerns about setting up an ORCID profile, please contact us at opensky@ucar.edu or call Michaeleen Trimarchi at x1182.

A new question has been posted to the Delphi Question and Answer Service on the topic: merit increases maximum percentage.

UCAR’s Delphi Service (log in with your Google password) was created in 1974 to give staff a vehicle to ask management about UCAR policies and practices in a confidential manner. Submit questions to the Delphi Coordinator: Marc Genty, Mesa Lab Room 39D, mgenty@ucar.edu, ext 1210. Staff can submit questions the following ways:
    1.    Interoffice mail in a sealed envelope marked "confidential,”
    2.    Email, with “confidential” in the subject line, or
    3.    US mail to the Delphi Coordinator’s home (call the coordinator to get his home address).

All questions must include your name and contact information so the coordinator can correspond confidentially with you. Questions and answers of general interest will be published in Staff Notes Daily.
