EORI 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 psychology-based group of researchers have launched FORRT (the framework for open and reproducible research training). It’s aiming to provide pedagogical means of teaching these things, so could be a great way to teach others or learn yourself about Open & Reproducible Research. Whatever your field, much of what they have to offer will be applicable.
- Should editors alter peer reviews? If so, in what circumstances? This pre-print describes a survey in which editors in various fields were asked when altering peer reviews were justified. Worth a read, as it’s a thought-provoking discussion.
- Springer Nature has launched quite wide-ranging research into the impact of Covid-19. There is a lot of information to read through here, but there’s a suggestion that Open research will move up the agenda because of it. Fingers crossed!
