Science in the open /or/ How I learned to stop worrying and love my blog
Speaker(s): Cameron Neylon
Abstract: The idea behind the 'Open Science Movement' is that by making data, results, and protocols freely available to the research community for use and re-use a step change in the efficiency of carrying out science can be achieved. In this talk I will discuss the experience of my research group in pursuing 'Open Notebook Science' in which we make our laboratory notebooks freely available on the web as experiments are recorded. This involves both the development and use of new tools to make the recording process practical and useful and the cultural challenges of convincing other scientists that this is a worthwhile, and not completely foolhardy, approach.
