I'm a librarian focusing on research reproducibility + research data management.
I gave an interview about me/my work: http://acrl.ala.org/dh/2018/04/04/repro/
I love FOSS, open access, open educational resources, open EVERYTHING
I hate the corporate capture of scholarship
I also love my super cute black cat Little Boss

#scholcomm is SUCH a joyless space and it's so sad because there are so many amazing people doing amazing things.......and then the great news about an OA policy at the USA federal level comes out and everyone immediately Eeyores
listen, I get being realistic but there needs to SOME celebration and joy
The US Office of Science and Technology Policy, under the direction of Dr. Alondra Nelson, has directed the immediate (green) open access to all articles and at least some data arising from federally-funded research.
Other dissemination genres (conference papers, book chapters, and the like) under consideration.
New agency policies must drop by the end of 2025.
