Open Climate Knowledge: 100% OA for Climate Change ๐Ÿ“– / ๐ŸŒ

Peter Murray-Rust launched theย openNotebookย 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,ย GenRย and the Open Science Lab at TIB have initiated an open research collaborationย Open Climate Knowledgeย 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 Climate

โ€” 100% open access publishing for climate change research

๐Ÿ“—/๐ŸŒ #openclimate #eLifeSprint

An open collaboration between Peter Murray-Rust and GenR with an invitation to the wider open science community. Open Climate text is by GenR editor Simon Worthington.

Question: If climate change related research publishing is at <30% how can it be made 100% open access ASAP?!

Invitation: Get involved, remote participation welcome! eLife are holding an innovation sprint in Cambridge, UK (and online), on 4-5th September 2019, where Peter Murray-Rust is leading a sprint contribution to create an ‘open annotated corpus of open access climate research publishing’.

Generation Research. โ€˜A Community Science Index, 2019. https://doi.org/10.25815/6pbz-ns09.

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.

Open science practitioners embrace the ideas of sharing and communicating their research and interests as well as collaborating with like-minded peers, i.e., practicing co-science (McKiernan et al. 2016) such as on the Open Science MOOC1 platform. If they admit to those goals regarding their research, it can be assumed that those researchers adapt their attitudes and practices towards learning and teaching, respectively. So, if researchers move towards open science practices, will they do so in their higher education teaching? Will education become more open? More generally, what would open science principles (Bezjak et al. 2018) in education look like, for educators and learners, respectively?
