Hülk, Ludwig. ‘Open Science, Collaboration and Participation in Energy System Research’, 2019. https://doi.org/10.25815/63vz-v811.

Open Energy Modelling has been built up as a research community over the last ten years aiming to bring transparency to the field using an array of Open Science methods for the planning of energy systems. The role of collaboration in the research cycle used by scientists in this engineering community is now an established Open Science practice. Similar practices of collaboration and participation outside of academia involving the public are still in their infancy. Harnessing public participation in energy planning and policy development is likely change as the energy sector is undergoing rapid changes due to its large contribution to greenhouse gases and the consequent demands for transparency and innovation to tackle climate change.

Göbel, Claudia. ‘Open Participatory Research — Four Challenges for Opening Science Beyond Scientific Institutions’, 2019. https://doi.org/10.25815/qykn-de07.

Claudia Göbel proposes a framework of examination for how Citizen Science and other types of participatory research should form a more prominent part of the much needed cultural change in knowledge institutions. This is to complement the many reforms already underway in other areas of Open Science & Scholarship.

Welcome to Post-Digital Community Science!

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.
