EOSI keeps an eye on changes in the fields of Open Science, FAIR data principles, and others, and directs any interested parties to important updates:
- Data Colada published an easy to read post with 8 tips (and examples) on how to make open research more findable and understandable. Perfect for getting going, can read it all within 3 minutes.
- Another big charity funder, CRUK, are supporting PlanS & are adopting immediate open access from Jan 2022 (here).
- One of the very few upsides of the Covid19 lockdown is that people have more time to spend working on Citizen Science, especially since April was Citizen Science month! It’s always worth thinking about, especially if you’ve got a huge data set that would take too long to go through, but might might a citizen science project on websites such as https://www.zooniverse.org/. Some interesting research has come out of citizen science – worth spending some time helping other projects when bored, or putting a project up yourself.
