About this Episode

Dan and James recorded a live episode on open publishing as part of the Open Publishing Fest. They also ran a survey (from start to finish) during the course of the episode on the public's perception of open scientific publishing and discuss the results.

Here are more stuff they covered, plus links!

  • The Open Publishing Fest
  • We collected data LIVE thanks to Prolific! Go to prolific.co/everythinghertz to get $50 worth of credit for just $1
  • How to build a low cost book scanner
  • A prepreprint repository for African researchers
  • What is the role of "niche" preprint servers vs. general preprint servers?
  • Is there a discoverability crisis?
  • Detailed literature search is HARD
  • The Octopus publishing platform
  • We discuss the results of our real-time survey on the public's perception of open publishing
  • Some university have set up a 'data office', to which data requests are sent to (instead of the author). Is this a good idea?
  • Are people really doing that many coronavirus studies?
