GenR is changing how it runs theme and having them ongoing as well as opening up to the Open Science community for theme suggestions. New themes that are already allocated for 2019/20 are ‘Innovation: The Open Science Dividend’ and ‘A Publishing Utopia’.Read More
Open Climate Knowledge #OCK https://github.com/petermr/climate
This call is for a first round of analysis to establish statistics on rates of FOSS licencing for code used in research software for climate change.
Open Climate Knowledge (OCK) is an open research project with the objective to urgently make research related to climate change 100% open. Research publishing related to climate change currently appear to only be at <30% open access. (Tai and Robinson 2018)
There are two steps to enable the transition of climate change research to being fully open.
- Firstly, gathering statistics on the rates of openly licensed works and
- secondly, to create a plan and recommendations to accelerate the push forward full open licensing of research.
📖 Welcome to the ‘Notebook’ community news from open science & scholarship. On the Notebook you’ll find brief notes, say 140 word long notes, like: meetups, calls, publications, data, mooc classes, webinars, curriculum, cool tools, and announcements from the GenR büro…
Call for contributions!
If you have other formats — Twitter threads, slides, pictures stories, infographics, etc — all welcome.
Note: each note starts with an emoji, so go grab yourself one from here and copy paste.
‘Explore this map by clicking on individual nodes and see which authors affiliated with which research institutions in Africa and beyond came up with the results. From each item title, you can directly go to the OSF item on AfricArXiv to find the abstract, whole manuscript, poster or dataset, respectively’ (AfricArXiv)
