Open Climate Knowledge: 100% OA for Climate Change 📖 / 🌍

Peter Murray-Rust launched the openNotebook 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, GenR and the Open Science Lab at TIB have initiated an open research collaboration Open Climate Knowledge 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 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’.
