Open Science & Climate Change Resources: A Collaborative Index — 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 — technologies and innovations, and;
  • secondly, climate sciences — monitoring and understanding the environment and the effects of climate change.

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

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

A Generation Research theme: April/May 2019

Invitation to contribute!

The theme will start in mid April 2019 and over the course of six weeks GenR will look to offer up examples of cutting edge work in the field from across Europe.

If you would like to make a contribution please drop the editor-in-chief Simon Worthington a line at simon@genr.eu or DM @gen_r_ on Twitter.

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.
