@firstname.lastname@example.org (I need to get him on masto) kills w.r.t #scholcomm it in his interview as one of this year’s 200 #ERC researchers participating in the 7th Heidelberg Laureate Forum: https://scilogs.spektrum.de/hlf/10-out-of-200-escaping-the-dependency-hell-fernando-chirigati-improves-computational-reproducibility/
hey all -- The Center for Open Science is seeking graduate students, post docs, researchers and academic faculty to participate in survey to investigate the factors that affect the perceived credibility and use of preprints.
It's 20min & you don't need to have posted a preprint in the past to take it: https://virginia.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3kFU2er17VY5uLP.
It's passed IRB also -- IRB Protocol Number: 2192.
Thanks & feel free to pass this on to interested parties!
In case people missed it, the whole University of California system (public unis in California) cancelled their subscriptions and deals with Elsevier 🎇 the split is over open access, lock-in, and exorbitant pricing
