This week, we’re back with another community call focused on projects and issues in open publishing. Come join the discussion! 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, February 8th.
The call is open to the public, starts at 8:00 am PT/ 11:00 am ET/ 3:00 pm UTC.
Call in details can be found on the call etherpad (where you can also find notes and the agenda). As with our October call, we’ll feature speakers on Air Mozilla, a video live-streaming platform, which we’ve found to be more accessible!
For February’s call, we’ll be talking about open publishing. The scientific publishing world is going through a transition and we will be featuring speakers discussing the projects they are working on to make sure that transition results in a world with more open, transparent, reproducible, and accessible science. Speakers include Science Mini-Grant awardees, external organization partners, Science Fellow alumni, and new community members!

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 the notes from our last call on trust in open data, Mozfest and community building for an idea of what others contributed to the conversation.
