In an effort to promote and elevate Open Source projects from across the scholarly communications space, FORCE11 is partnering with eLife Innovation (elifesciences.org/about/innovation) and Dryad (datadryad.org) on a series of Open Source Community Calls. These calls are an informal way to discuss and learn about emerging and established projects that promote open approaches to publishing datasets, articles and preprints as well as discovery, evaluation, and more.

The goal of each call is to allow for Open Source projects to give updates on recent releases or significant changes. Each call will have pre-selected presenters as well as time set aside for additional attendees to jump in with their own updates. All webinars will be recorded and summarized for future reference.

Next Call: February 25

The next call will be on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm GMT.  Whether you have developments to share, or simply would like to listen in to hear what’s new, please register to join the call.

On February 25, we will hear from:

  • Popper, a tool that allows researchers to automate the execution and validation of computational and data-intensive experimentation workflows;
  • Outbreak Science Rapid PREreview (OSrPRE), a platform for the rapid review of outbreak-related preprints;
  • Open Climate Knowledge, a fully open, collaborative research project to gather climate change knowledge using data-mining and open publishing; and
  • Open Publishing Awards, update from the organizers of an annual celebration of the Open Source software that supports our publishing communities.

Please join us for a lively discussion as project leads and contributors from across the world share their work on exciting projects that are using cutting-edge technology to drive forward open science and research communication.

Join the discussion

More details about the presentations and the opportunity to contribute your own updates are on the open agenda. Please register to join the call.

The agenda is open to anyone who would like to present, in five minutes or less, an open-source project that has relevance to open science and research communication
