This week, we’re hosting a community call on issues of trust in science, and we want you there! For background, the Science Lab community call takes place every other month, highlighting recent developments and work of the community relevant to science and the web. Join us to hear more about current projects, find out how you can get involved, and listen to others (or yourself!) discuss work in and around open research.
Our upcoming community call is this Thursday, April 13th. The call is open to the public and will start at 11:00 am ET. Call in details can be found on the call etherpad (where you can also find notes and the agenda). This month, we’ll feature speakers on Air Mozilla, a video live-streaming platform which will be a departure from our typical dial in, and hopefully more accessible!
This month, we’ll be talking about trust, featuring people who build scientific projects and programs that grapple with trust issues, advocate for research integrity, or test and collect metrics around the general trustworthiness of scientific disciplines. We’ll hear from the following set list of impressive contributors to trusted network communities:
- Sucheta Ghoshal – developing Open Science in the Public Interest @sucheta_ghoshal, Social Computing, Georgia Tech
- Seamus Tuohy – crowdsourcing resources for modeling risk @seamustuohy, Internet Initiatives, Internews
- Jon Hill – bridging the ideological gap between academia + open science @jonxhill, University of York
- Amber Budden – collaborating on data across institutions @aebudden, AAAS CEFP + DataONE
- Danielle Robinson – surveying diversity, policy and inclusion in scientific institutions @daniellecrobins, Mozilla Fellow
We’ll also hear our closing updates from our 2016 Mozilla Fellows for Science! Should be a great call!
Have an update, blog post or event you’d like to share relevant to open science? Add it to the etherpad (see ‘Non Verbal Updates’). It’s a great way to share what you’re working on and/or interested in with the community. Don’t be shy. Have a look at last month’s notes on art in open science for an idea of what others contributed to the conversation.
