The landscape of scientific communication is changing dramatically. Diverse stakeholders, including major funders and universities, are demonstrating a growing interest and investment in open scientific principles and practices. Researchers, students, and the institutions that support them are needing to navigate new expectations, workflows, and policies against a backdrop of relatively unchanged means and measures of scientific success.
Open Science at OHSU
Friday, Dec. 8
Panel discussion from 3 to 4 p.m.; refreshments and workshops 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Vollum M1441 (panel and workshop 1), M1443 (workshop 2)
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Sound complicated? Join us for a panel discussion with OHSU leaders and early career researchers on the evolving landscape of scientific communication. We’ll explore the drivers behind the calls for “openness,” what this means in practice, and the real world compatibility and tensions between open science and student, researcher, and institutional success.
- Gary L. Westbrook M.D., Vollum Institute Senior Scientist and Director of the Neuroscience Graduate Program
- Bita Moghaddam Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Behavioral Neuroscience
- Abhinav Nellore, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Surgery
- Alison Hill, Associate Professor, Center for Spoken Language Understanding
Dr. Hill and Robin Champieux, assistant professor and scholarly communication librarian, will demonstrate tools and methods for building transparency within a lab and onboarding new graduate students and postdocs. Attendees will have access to a GitHub template repository and code of conduct designed to facilitate a healthy and productive learning and research environment. You’ll be able to use these tools to communicate expectations, document protocols, receive feedback, and facilitate the long-term value of students’ and trainees’ contributions.
Daniela Saderi, graduate student in the neuroscience program, will introduce attendees to the current role of preprints in scientific publishing and the importance of giving peer-to-peer early feedback to the authors. Attendees will have the opportunity to test PREreview, a new resource for engaging with other scientists and master peer-reviewing by collaboratively writing preprint reviews after discussing them at journal clubs.
