In today’s Peer Review Week guest post, Joe Pold of PLOS interviews the senior editorial team of PLOS Computational Biology about their experience of mandating code sharing for the journal, and its impact on peer review
Revisiting a post from 2019 in light of the acquisition of protocols.io by Springer Nature. As community-owned and -led efforts to build scholarly communications infrastructure gain momentum, what can be done to help them achieve long term sustainability?
Today’s post looks at loosely coupled software and services that together could be used to create a modular library system. What are the merits, and flaws, of such an approach and what can libraries (and technology providers) do to remedy some of the less desired effects of such strategies?
You know an article exists, but cannot read its language. So you go to our tool, paste the Digital Object Identifier of the article and get a list with translated versions. You manage your articles in a reference manager and notice that an article on your reading list is now also available in your mother tongue. You are really enthusiastic about a new article that was just published…
The students of the Open Knowledge course at Hochschule Hannover made a book The Open Science Guide of Guides with a series of rapid production ‘book dashes’. The project was a partnership with GenR and the Open Science Lab, TIB. Lessons were learned on all sides — the students had a non-stop tour of open science tools and services that you chain together to make a modern book…
The Single Source Publishing Community (SSPC) is focused on scholarly publishing and is a meeting place for researchers, educators, publishers, and software developers. The community looks to help Single Source Publishing (SSP) technology to work better for Open Access, Open Science, in learning, and for Bibliodiversity. Drop in on our discussion board, join the monthly ‘SSPC Show & Tell’ sessions…
In this Guest Blog, Guest Editors from the Open Biomaterials Research Collection discuss the range of research topics featured in the collection, their contributions to open science and promotion of reproducibility via shared protocols in biomaterials research.
0000-0002-1539-8256 We, @PLOS, @PLOSONE and the open source community, will discuss why and how to #ShareYourCode in a tweet chat on 25 April, 10-11am Pacific Daylight Time/6-7pm British Summer Time. Join us! A cornerstone of science
PLOS ONE is calling for papers that promote the principles and values of open science to form a Collection in quantum computation and simulation. Contributions must be submitted by 08 June 2018. We are
Martin Fitzpatrick sends word of a cool collection of open access scientific protocols called Do.abl.es. For the uninitiated, protocols are the recipes that scientists use to carry out experiments in a reproducible way. The list of protocols posted to Do.abl.es to date has a number of interesting and important biochemistry and biology experiments.
There’s also a neat companion site called Install.abl.es which concentrates on many of the same things we do – the use of open source software in the sciences.
