This is important | Ten simple rules for recognizing data and software contributions in hiring, promotion, and tenure. This is an important #openscience issue that needs to be considered in hiring, promotion, and tenure. I hope it shows up #ploscomp soon!

TOMORROW! Monday April 22, 16:00 UTC!

Translate Science invites you to our first community event, "In conversation with Lynne Bowker and Emma Steigerwald." We'll be talking about how they incorporate open and multilingual science in their work.

We knew little about the presence of pharmaceuticals in river waters, despite a growing body of evidence about their harmful effects on the environment. A large group of scientists addressed this gap by sampling 258 rivers in 104 countries on all continents:


All samples were collected using the same equipment, with strict adherence to a single methodology + all samples were delivered and analysed in one place! 👏 This is what #openscience looks like today!

One of the (many) good sides of teaching: you get plenty of time to delve into topics and develop your own material (and code).

I now want to share part of my materials as a #DataScience textbook online:
(work in progress)

All materials and source code is on #github:

And a pdf version can be found on #zenodo:

Michael Eisen has been fired for
praising "one of The Onion’s fake news stories on [Xitter]. The story bore the headline “Dying Gazans Criticized For Not Using Last Words To Condemn Hamas.” Eisen said “The Onion speaks with more courage, insight and moral clarity than the leaders of every academic institution put together. I wish there were a @TheOnion university.”

2) #Metagenomics is now maturing to a point where large-scale worldwide meta-analyses become possible, with enough public data to study rare species in broad contexts. This is possible only if the raw data and, above all, the associated #metadata are public and accessible.

So please, do not keep the metadata behind closed doors, and adopt an #openscience policy whenever possible 😀

Hello scientists in 🇫🇮 and 🌍 - @coderefinery starts next week, and everyone is invited. This isn't a programming course, but extra tools (#git, #testing, #reproducibility, #documentation, etc) needed for a scientist to do programming comfortably. T-Th, Sep 19-21 and 26-28, online.

If you're at Aalto, invite us to your research group to help put these tools into practice - we don't teach and leave you alone!

At the #OpenScience bootcamp, Tim Errington @openscience repeatedly highlighted the challenges, benefits, and opportunities that come from doing #replication

Hi again #Mastodon!
I joined the fediverse when a lot of my community had not migrated from the bird site, so could only partially reconstruct it here using automated tools. If I followed you there and don’t here, say hi and let’s reconnect!

For those who don’t know me, I am a #virologist by training with almost 20 years of experience as a #science #editor, a passion for #microbiology and all science really, #OpenScience #openaccess & people

Have a lovely day everyone

Been a busy past few days with work, travelling, and fighting off jet lag... but one thing that I am happy to announce is that an HPC community engineering team that I helped start is now officially a part of the Ubuntu project. If you are interested in using Ubuntu for HPC, or just interested in being involved with a community engineering team, you should totally check out this article below 👇

#ubuntu #HPC #openscience #Community

Does anyone have any research software engineering (#RSEng) or #SciComp related graphics that can be used as stickers or general promotional material? (not tied to any one organization, CC-BY or better)
#HPC #OpenScience #ComputationalScience

Attached are some drafts I did a while ago following the tools metaphor, but I'm definitely not good at this...

Other interns work with #OpenScience @nasa data! Get to know the current @NASA_NCCS interns 👇

For those that missed it here's our presentation for our graduation from the OLS-7 cohort. We're excited to keep building up our community with the direction we worked on formalizing during our time in the program.

#community #OpenScience

#OpenScience means we “show our work”—@ManyDogs
makes our experimental protocols, data, statistical analysis code, and publications available at no cost to the community (see Thus our methods can be reviewed, repeated, + expanded upon by anybody. 3/4

And now goes the way of Mendely:

If you don't want your personal data being sold or otherwise misused, stop using!

Bit by bit, every useful tool in science is getting killed by the surveillance publishers.


An #openscience question for earth scientists:

I'd like to know what standards earth scientists would use to store institution and coordinates of an experiment in an XML file?

Searching for metadata standards for geospatial data, I found, e.g.:

Which is waaaaay too detailed for me. Anybody able and willing to help me out?

Together, OLI and TIRS study all parts of Earth’s surface every 16 days.

From land to ice to sea, the open data provided by the #Landsat program has contributed to a deeper understanding of our changing planet. #OpenScience

Why we think every scholarly organization, but in particular scholarly societies, should not just migrate to #Mastodon, but host their own instances - and what that has to do with the journals many scholarly societies use to generate revenue:

After months of work I'm so happy that our new preprint is online!

Profiling the expression of #transportome genes in #cancer: a systematic approach.

It's a bit unfinished but it's by design! We want and need #feedback from #bioinformatics and #physiology people to move forward. I've tried to follow #openscience principles, so the pipeline is completely autonomous, containerized and the code for the paper is there, included in the repos!

"We need to run away from metrics that are one dimensional. The temptation to reduce complex things to a number is tempting, but the problems and the toxicity that arise from this are problematic" - @fperez at #NASACERN #OpenScience summit

"We need to think of other ways to assess intellectual value, extending beyond the publication to sustain healthier scientific communities." - @fperez

(my interpretation of the quote due to some language and stream interruptions.. 😬)

"The number of people from Latin America in leadership positions is miniscule, especially compared to the userbase. I'm going to spend my sabbatical time to build capacity and work on problems that are relevant to Latin America. If #UNESCO wants to provide resources for that - I'd be happy to talk!" - @fperez

edit: I found slides!

I wanted to share with you a new thing I'm working on:

It's a resource for practical best practices and tips to use in bioinformatic analyses. The idea is to work together to define standards and workflows and write them down. I love the open science, FAIR data and FAIR code philosophy but there are not many easy-to-use and direct resources around to actually tell you how to do things in the bioinformatics world.

A new batch of people seem to have arrived at Mastodon <img class=" title=":mastodon:"/>. Welcome! 👋

To get you started with accounts to follow, two lists I know of:

If you're interested in #OpenScience, check out by @rmrahal

If you're interested in #HealthPsychology and #BehaviorChange, check out

Actually, does anybody know of lists about methodology (qual, quant, evidence synthesis, measurement)? 🤔

[Boosts would be great, thanks! 🙏]

Ok, this is superbly ingenious. or #helpingThoseWhoNeedItMost #openScience #trivialCostTech

We've updated our package scope guide if you want to better understand the types of packages that we review. Spatial packages are one of our current core domain areas if you are a #gis person! But we review packages across many #science domains Check it out here: #python #opensource #openscience

The data are publicly available with a viewer app developed by the team. #OpenScience

The app identifies individual trees in satellite imagery and shows the amount of carbon they contain.
