Open Climate Knowledge: 100% OA for Climate Change πŸ“– / 🌍

Peter Murray-Rust launched theΒ openNotebookΒ resource at last week’s #eLifeSprint2019*. openNotebook is a framework for data mining, searching, and reusing research publications. Below he walks through the steps of how to use the framework in the context of climate change and opening up research to the public. Peter Murray-Rust,Β GenRΒ and the Open Science Lab at TIB have initiated an open research collaborationΒ Open Climate KnowledgeΒ to address the question of how to improve on the low rates of open access publishing related to climate change. Together we want to change this. Firstly by establishing better stats on OA rates and secondly, by coming up with a plan and recommendations for an accelerated transition to 100% OA for climate change.

Open Climate

β€” 100% open access publishing for climate change research

πŸ“—/🌍 #openclimate #eLifeSprint

An open collaboration between Peter Murray-Rust and GenR with an invitation to the wider open science community. Open Climate text is by GenR editor Simon Worthington.

Question: If climate change related research publishing is at <30% how can it be made 100% open access ASAP?!

Invitation: Get involved, remote participation welcome! eLife are holding an innovation sprint in Cambridge, UK (and online), on 4-5th September 2019, where Peter Murray-Rust is leading a sprint contribution to create an ‘open annotated corpus of open access climate research publishing’.

Open Science & Climate Change Resources: A Collaborative Index β€” Contribute!

🌍 The climate index is part of the GenR theme ‘Open Science and Climate Change‘ for which there are two areas of inquiry:

  • firstly, a low-carbon energy future β€” technologies and innovations, and;
  • secondly, climate sciences β€” monitoring and understanding the environment and the effects of climate change.

Contribute: Add a project, paper, software, data set, call-outs, etc!

Add an item, chat, or leave a comment

Join us over at the open pad on the CryptPad platform and add items or leave a comment.

In early autumn 2019 highlights of the Open Science & Climate Change Resources Index will be published on GenR and at a later date an open collaborative paper will follow summarizing the findings of the indexing process.

Open Science and Climate Change: A GenR Theme

Time is of the essence when it comes to climate change and many look to Open Science to speed up research and innovation in response to the challenges faced.

The aim of this special theme, as with other Generation Research special topics, is to find example projects and tools that can inspire researcher and show pathways for implementing Open Science and Scholarship practices.

GenR welcomes contributions, collaboration, and suggestions, as: blogposts, repostings, notices, literature, and as contributions to an open pad β€˜A Collaborative Listing: Open Science and Climate Change Resources’.
