EORI keeps an eye on changes in the fields of Open Research, FAIR data principles, and others, and directs any interested parties to important updates:
- This piece argues convincingly for Open Peer Review, where reviewer reports & interactions between the parties involved in the peer review process are published alongside the primary research output. It also misses some benefits of Open Peer Review such as providing a window for less experienced scientists to learn from and about the peer review process (important, as less-established scientists are among the best peer reviewers), and combat biases in reviewing (here and here).
- https://oa.works/ has some really straight forward Open access tools to use. Good to play with!
- There are some interesting upcoming talks/ symposia on various aspects of Open Research, including Open Repositories, Peer Review and Pre-prints, Open Scholarship week events, and critically analysing scientific reform etc. There are frequent talks on almost all areas of opens science, targeted at all levels ranging from the uninitiated to seasoned Open Research scholars. Additionally, many talks end up on Youtube, allowing anyone to access them any time (E.g. Edinburgh Reproducibility’s account). If you’re interested in any area of Open Science, just search it!
