few skills to manage it effectively Movement toward openness, impacted by OSTP and spurred by early career researcher expectations Disciplinary culture shifts toward data reuse + reproducibility Need for multi-purpose online spaces to collaborate, share, store, and archive research outputs (including data)
messiness of research and transparency in methods and process that helps both the researcher and the audience. It helps the researcher by allowing others to comment and get involved in the research earlier if they spot flaws in the methodology or process, and the audience by showing (especially junior or first-time researchers) that research is rarely a clean progression from simply-defined goals to a final research output, and instead involves reworking and change as certain aspects of the originally-scoped research may become untenable or new areas prove to be more interesting or researchable.” –Thomas King, Open Research course participant https://courses.p2pu.org/he/courses/2377/content/4682/
and all ideas are shared. 2. Anyone can take part at any level. 3. There will be no patents. 4. Suggestions are the best form of criticism. 5. Public discussion is much more valuable than private email. 6. An open project is bigger than, and is not owned by, any given lab. opensourcemalaria.org
• Make the project blog the core part of our project identity • Share research progress, outputs and methods on a regular basis, via our website/ blogs and other media • Share data openly, including survey results • Share methodology and research instruments under a CC-BY license Adapted from Open Research Course, “Examples of Open Dissemination.” https://courses.p2pu.org/he/courses/2377/content/4695/
Organize your data and code – Automate the process – Turn scripts into reproducible reports – Turn repeated code into functions – Package functions for reuse – Use version control – License your software Note: These steps apply primarily to computational research. http://kbroman.org/steps2rr/
only for open access journals – publish only in open access journals – openly share my working manuscripts – openly share my code, when possible – openly share my data, when possible – openly share my notebooks, when possible – ask my professional societies to support open research – speak out in support of open research
startling results in European medical journals. Few Liberians were then trained in laboratory or epidemiological methods. Even today, downloading one of the papers would cost a physician here $45, about half a week’s salary. …To our knowledge, no senior official now serving in Liberia’s Ministry of Health had ever heard of the antibody studies’ findings. Nor had top officials in the international organizations so valiantly supporting the Ebola response in Liberia, including United Nations agencies and foreign medical teams.” - BERNICE DAHN, VERA MUSSAH and CAMERON NUTT http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/08/opinion/yes-we-were-warned-about-ebola.html
