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!

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.

This is a collaboratively made index of resources to accompany the GenR theme ‘Post-Digital Community Science‘ which ran over May/June 2019. The theme blogposts can all be seen here online.

The index has been organised to represent a number of areas and questions that were felt to be important for researchers looking to organise and plan research projects making use of Community Science. The categories in the index are:

  • projects,
  • collaborative tools and open access,
  • FOSS for open hardware, and
  • spaces.
