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:
- This pre-print looks at how Science’s old system has results in lives lost during the Covid-19 pandemic, and argues in favour of Open Science practices for the sake of rigour & trustworthiness. Helpfully, the first author, Lonni Besançon, is giving a free online talkon Dec 3rd as part of ReproducibiliTEA Edinburgh. Sign-ups are here.
- cOAlition S has launched a fantastically easy to use journal checker toolto check if planned publications comply with PlanS. It doesn’t have all the charity funders loaded at the moment, but it’s only in Beta and will presumably (hopefully!) include them in the future.
- SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) Europe has produced an overview from 120 Open Science infrastructuresacross Europe. The report is rich with Open Science information, including data types using the various infrastructures, and is worth a peruse.
