Membership of the Working Group
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the group and its activities!
If you would like to be listed as a member on this website, please email your name and affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the members list. If you have a personal web page/blog/OKF profile that you would like your name to link to then please also send the URL.
Whilst entirely optional, it is always nice when new members introduce themselves via the mailing list so people with common interests can make themselves known!
Getting more involved:
As well as the email list and monthly meetings, we are always looking for people to volunteer their services for:
- Blog posts on your own work in open data in science, reports on relevant meetings/conferences or issues you think need to be addressed.
- Translation of projects such as the Panton Principles, Is It Open Data? and associated publicity material.
- Organising events to promote open data in your own field or local area. Many of our local groups e.g. OKFN Austria have interests in science. They’d love your support.
If you’d like to be involved in any of the above, email the mailing list or email@example.com with your ideas or general offers of assistance.
