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:

  • This is a punchy Twitter thread which quickly goes over the issues with an infamous current publisher, and that Open Science is the answer. The kind of thing to send to someone who isn’t really aware of the community fight for open science – so good to share with friends!
  • Eurodoc has launched a survey prior to the European Commission launching Open Research Europe (ORE; their open access publishing platform) later this year, to give direct information as to some of what will be needed. Always worth chipping in so they build the right platform!
  • Open Life Science are recruiting for open science ambassadors, which recruit ECRs and provide a 16 week training course (Sept-Dec 2020; I don’t believe it’s full time) with a mentor and cohort-sessions. Definitely worth getting into if you’ve been thinking about Open Science but are not really sure how to get involved and would like a mentor’s support.
