Governance, Engagement, and Resistance in the Open Science Movement: A Comparative Study

Dan Sholler OCTOBER 6, 2017

A growing community of scientists from a variety of disciplines is moving the norms of scientific research toward open practices. Supporters of open science hope to increase the quality and efficiency of research by enabling the widespread sharing of datasets, research software source code, publications, and other processes and products of research. The speed at which the open science community seems to be growing mirrors the rapid development of technological capabilities, including robust open source scientific software, new services for data sharing and publication, and novel data science techniques for working with massive datasets.

The Value of #Welcome

I’m participating in the AAAS Community Engagement Fellows Program (CEFP), funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The inaugural cohort of Fellows is made up of 17 community managers working in a wide range of scientific communities. This is cross-posted from the Trellis blog as part of a series of reflections that the CEFP Fellows are sharing. In my training as a AAAS Community Engagement Fellow, I hear repeatedly about the value of extending a personal welcome to your community members.
