But the working group does a lot more, and this week Jenny Molloy send out a call for participation. There are a lot of possibilities; she wrote:
Dear All, As we have grown to over 400 people on the mailing list and activities have expanded it would be great to form a committee with a few more people on board to make sure the working group is as effective as possible in achieving our mission of opening up science and scientific research outputs. If you'd be interested in getting more involved in running the group and our activities and projects, get in touch! It would also be great to have representatives in local areas willing to act as open science champions in their own countries or cities. The types of roles we'd like to fill are below, as well as a reminder of some of the projects we've got on the go. The time commitment will be flexible and relatively low, but it will make a big difference to have someone keeping an eye on specific areas! If you know anyone not on the list who might be interested in getting involved, please forward this message to them. Working group coordinator (working with Jenny) - Blog Editor - Tech/Dev Lead - Event Organiser - Designer Active Projects: - Panton Principles and Panton Fellowships - Content Mining Manifesto - pyBOSSA - Open Research Data Handbook - Open Science blog Tools and activities from other working groups of special interest: - BibServer (developed by Open Bibliography) - Open Access Index (@ccess and Open Bibliography) - DataHub (CKAN Team) - Who Needs Access? (@ccess) If you have any questions, please let me know - I look forward to hearing from you! JennyReally, there is really a lot you have to do, and as Peter Murray-Rust replied to Jenny's call, you do not have to be paid as scientist to join!
