These are great open science initiatives, which I had expected to be still unknown by a decent group of people who should know about them. I posted these on slow new days on the Open Science Feed. The community seemed to agree.
It is still in the original Reddit format and without categorization, but maybe a starting point to talk about the limits of the list and the best system to categorize them.
Do you already know @hypothes_is? A web annotation system that is designed for scholars. Select text on any homepage or PDF and add a (public or private) comment. E.g., used by @ScienceFeedback to review press articles on science.
Do you know @ScienceFeedback? A group of scientists fighting fake news on climate change and health. They review viral "news" stories: make detailed comments with web annotations, a summary and a quantitative assessment.
Do you already know GOSH? The Gathering for Open Science Hardware works to make scientific hardware more affordable and flexible, which will especially help the global South. They network with citizen science, maker and hack spaces.
Do you already know the OpenScience MOOC? A Massive Online Course and Community on why we do this to scholarly communication, open data, open source research software, Reproducible Research and Open Educational Resources.
Do you know the Software Preservation Network? Software is also human heritage and should be curated and preserved. This network includes public and university libraries, history of computing museums and research data archives.
A wonderful offer @ashwinvis 💙
With this are you thinking of maintaining your own list under your own account or org? The teaserbot labs lists are all directly related to topics of interest / research areas of innercircles (more lists will follow). And though for some lists - like this one - some excellent people offered to co-maintain, in other lists I am the sole maintainer and - due to overall workload - behind in maintenance tasks.
Examples of lists that are independently maintained (where I frequently PR) are delightful-databases and delightful-cli. I would love it, if you'd consider launching an independent list. If you do, then please add an issue to the delightful issue tracker and we'll take it from there.
That is an awesome list, @ashwinvis.
There is some overlap, collaborative writing tools, reference sharing, Jupyter notebooks, but most is not directly open science.
(Except maybe for the people who claim that open science is science done right.)
My suggestion would be to link to each other. I could contribute a few collaborative writing tools I like. (Google Docs is nice, but I guess we are not allowed to mention them. :-) There are more. )
No longer adding entries to first list above, due to great work of @Venema already done. Adding below:
- Intplanetary Publishing Protocol
- The Licensing Initiative for Research, Academia, and Science
- SciFed: Draft specification for federating scientific activities using ActivityPub (see also: AP dev watchlist)
- scienceverse: A Grammar of Science
- DataCite: Locate, identify, and cite research data.
- Academic Torrents: Making over 83TB of research data available.
- Stop Tracking Science: Movement against science tracking that violates fundamental rights and the integrity of an open knowledge society.
- eLife Innovation Sprint: The future of science publishing is in the open.
