Oxford Open Science

opensciencelogoMonthly meetings held at Oxford e-Research Centre, 7 Keble Road,

Join us for informal discussion on open science in a digital age. Maybe you’re looking at ways to share scientific data more effectively, planning a project involving citizen crowd sourcing, want to make your research as accessible as possible or maybe you’re just interested in how openness and transparency could change the way we do science, come along and explore.

Our first session of the year will introduce the way in which the web changes how we measure the impact of our research.

Find us on Facebook, follow @oxopensci on Twitter or join our Mailing list for news and updates.

Further Afield

For discussion of all things open science consider joining the OKFN Open Science mailing list.

This is a medium volume list with occasional flurries of activity so do consider the digest option. For a taste of the kind of discussions that come up, take a look at the list archives.

Check out the following websites:
evolutionofscience.org has a great run down of the key areas of open science.
OKFN Open Science working group has links to open science projects and info.
Open Science Federation has a very active Google+ account for all the latest news and updates.
