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
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 ‘A Collaborative Listing: Open Science and Climate Change Resources’.Read More

A Generation Research theme: April/May 2019
Invitation to contribute!
In this Generation Research theme the idea is to look at how the general public can participate in the research process and the creation of knowledge as Community Science and how this is reinvigorating a culture of scholarship and science in society at large.
Citizen Science is booming around the world but the degree to which it is open varies greatly, as does formal support for Citizen Science across disciplines, organizations and countries.
‘LIBER Open Science Roadmap’ (Ayris et al. 2018)
The Open Science learning theme will take two approaches to the question of how to integrate Open Science practices into higher education. The first, will be to examine ways for students to get on board — using Open Science methods, using open source tools, or being made aware of how to get ‘more’ credit and attribution. The second approach, being about trends and innovations in ways of teaching, for example ‘The Carpentries’ an open peer-learning network for data, software, and library skills with the formula of being ‘welcoming’ and making good use of the wealth of teaching methods available.Read More
