Open Development Mekong | Sharing information about Mekong and its development with the world.

The Open Development Network is also creating a complex ecosystem of partners from local to global levels, across sectors, to contribute data, linkages, and technical expertise to the Open Development platform. EWMI-ODI facilitates dialogue and cooperation between and among nodes of the Open Development Network in order to support an intended long-term collaboration, to enable crowdsourcing and dispersed content development, based on needed expertise and commitment to a common approach. …”

Science Journals: editorial policies | Science | AAAS

“The Science Journals support the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) guidelines to raise the quality of research published in Science and to increase transparency regarding the evidence on which conclusions are based….All data used in the analysis must be available to any researcher for purposes of reproducing or extending the analysis. Data must be available in the paper, deposited in a community special-purpose repository, accessible via a general-purpose repository such as Dryad, or otherwise openly available….”

Open Data Grant Winners to Conduct Sentiment Analysis of Thousands of French Revolution Pamphlets | Newberry

“Today, you can see trends on Twitter at a glance and get immediate insights into the public discourse surrounding current events. But how can we learn about trending topics and public opinion in centuries past? The recipients of the Newberry’s Open Data Grant intend to find out. The Open Data Grant helps support innovative scholarship that applies technologies such as digital mapping, text mining, and data visualization to digitized primary sources. Joseph Harder, a chemist and data scientist, and Mimi Zhou, an expert in digital humanities studying early French literature, will use the award to complete a sentiment analysis of the Newberry’s recently digitized collection of more than 30,000 French Revolution pamphlets….”

Knowledge Unlatched Research

[Knowledge Unlatched Research is a division of Knowledge Unlatched.]

“We are working to help libraries, publishers, intermediaries and policymakers to capture, interpret and share and act on rich data about how Open Access [OA] books are being used. We are also contributing to state-of-the-field knowledge about OA policy and practice for books.

Our projects include:

  • Developing effective tools and strategies for capturing data relating to the uses of OA books;
  • Mapping the digital visibility of OA books in a global context;
  • Creating integrated dashboards to help OA publishers to gather and manage usage data from multiple sources;
  • Exploring challenges of data governance – and likely solutions – for communities involved in making, sharing and using OA books;
  • Contributing to international projects focussed on mapping the OA policy landscape for books;
  • Collaborating with platforms and publishers to ensure that the best use is being made of available data about OA books….”

The PACE PLOS One data will not be released and the article won’t be retracted – Mind the Brain

“Two years have passed since I requested release of the PLOS One PACE data, eight months since the Expression of Concern was posted. What can we expect?…

The PLOS One Senior Editors completed the pre-specified process of deciding what to do about the data not being shared.  They took no action. …

International trends will continue toward making uploading data into publicly accessible repositories a requirement for publication. PLOS One has slowed down by buying into discredited arguments about patient consent forms not allowing sharing of anonymized data….”

Open Science, Open Data, Open Source: 21st century research skills for the life sciences by Pedro L. Fernandes and Rutger A. Vos | 2017 · GitBook

“Who is this for? The goal of these resources is to give a bird’s eye view of the developments in open scientific research. That is, we cover both social developments (e.g. the culture in various communities) as well as technological ones. As such, no part of the contents are especially in-depth or geared towards advanced users of specific practices or tools. Nevertheless, certain sections are more relevant to some people than to others. Specifically: The most interesting sections for Graduate students will be about navigating the literature, managing evolving projects, and publishing and reviewing. Lab technicians may derive the most benefit from the sections about capturing data, working with reproducibility in mind and sharing data. For data scientists, the sections on organizing computational projects as workflows, managing versions of data and source code, open source software development, and data representation will be most relevant. Principal investigators may be most interested in the sections on data management, data sharing, and coping with evolving projects. Scientific publishers may be interested to know how scientists navigate the literature, what the expectations are for enhanced publications, and the needs for data publishing. Science funders and policy makers may easily find value in the capturing data, data management, data sharing and navigating the literature. Science communicators may be more interested in exploring the content by starting with navigating the literature, working with reproducibility in mind and sharing data….”
