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:

  • A great wee argument against impact factors, and a small step related to CVs to counter them, here.
  • This article explains some of the faults with the current system of peer review. A good read!
  • Significantly: The government has published a policy paper in which they pledge to “mandate open publication and strongly incentivise open data sharing where appropriate.” Although it’s form the department of business, energy, and industrial strategy, and has its ‘subtle’ politicking, it talks about the whole of science.

The best way to get more updates is to follow EOSI on Twitter.
