Welcome to the Cambridge Open Research!
We gather once a month to promote the idea of sharing and collaboration among academics as well as between academics and non-academics. We are keen to hear, discuss, and learn about successful models as well as try and find solutions for difficulties on the way.

Figshare – share ALL your research output
Speaker: Mark Hahnel, founder of figshare
Figshare is a repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner. It allows users to upload any file format to be made visualisable in the browser so that figures, datasets, media, papers, posters, presentations and filesets can be disseminated in a way that the current scholarly publishing model does not allow.

BaseSpace - Collaborative analysis and sequencing analysis tools
Speaker: Adrian Alexa
Typical sequencing datasets reach tens of terabytes in size making data sharing and collaboration challenging. BaseSpace cloud computing environment allows collaborative and reproducible research through validation with shared datasets and multi-team review. Moreover, it facilitates the development and deployment of data analysis tools in a simple, user-friendly interface, accessible to users with varying bioinformatic expertise

Keeping up with biology’s data deluge
Speaker: Richard Smith, founder of nowomics.com
Biological data are being generated and published at an unprecedented rate. With so many sources of information freely available online, how can you keep track of what’s new? Nowomics is a new website that lets you follow genes, diseases and biological terms to see a news feed of the latest data and papers relevant to you.

Opening up science to the world: open access models and why they matter
Speaker: Dr. Jelena Aleksic
Are you a member of the public interested in science, but find that you can’t freely access most scientific papers? Are you a scientist that would like your science to have the impact it deserves, and reach a global audience? Join us for a discussion on different open access strategies, and how to make science papers freely available globally.

Share the problem as well as the product: let the public help with your research
Speaker: Richard Smith, founder of Solvers.io
What does it mean to be an open researcher? Sharing your work freely benefits society, and we’ll show how these benefits can go both ways. Join us for a discussion on how non-scientists have helped make breakthroughs researchers couldn’t manage alone, where we’ll introduce an exciting new platform that allows scientists to team up with highly skilled volunteers to solve problems.

Would you share your genome sequence?
Speaker: Fiona Nielsen CEO DNAdigest.org
The genomic era is at our doorstep together with a lot of promises to personalized medicine – But what exactly is a genome? Do I have to share it? Do I have to share it all? With whom should I share it? What ethical issues might arise? What are my rights concerning my genome?
