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:

  • The European Quality in Preclinical Data (EQIPD) study group has produced a systematic review of experimental design, conduct, analysis, and reporting guidelines relating to preclinical animal research. More specifically, it considers the various guidelines and what it means for internal validity of a study.
  • Tailor & Francis have produced a mixed message in response to the cOalitionS criteria update following public consultation. They state they support Open Access, and are looking to transition to a full open access model. However, they bring up that cOalitionS will only be offered on hybrid journals until the end of 2024 and then say they can’t commit to annual growth rates – potentially suggesting they may not have transitioned to an open access model by then. We’ll have to see what happens.
  • Cambridge University Press has launched Cambridge Open Engage, for preprints, presentation, posters, conferences papers, and grey literature.
