A Talk with Brian Nosek: Improving Openness and Reproducibility
in Scholarly Communication
Thursday, April 19 • 2-4 p.m.
Geisel Library, Seuss Room
Shifting the scholarly culture toward open access, open data, and open workflow is partly an incentives problem, partly an infrastructure problem, and partly a coordination problem. The Center for Open Science(COS) is a non-profit technology and culture change organization working on all three. Central elements of COS’s strategy are to provide policy, incentive, and normative solutions that are applicable across institution, funder, publisher, and society stakeholders, and to provide efficient implementations of those solutions with open-source public goods infrastructure that is branded and operated by the communities themselves (OSF).
Brian Nosek is co-founder and executive director of the Center for Open Science, which operates the Open Science Framework. COS is enabling open and reproducible research practices worldwide. Brian is also a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2002. He co-founded Project Implicit, a multi-university collaboration for research and education investigating implicit cognition–thoughts and feelings that occur outside of awareness or control. Brian investigates the gap between values and practices, such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one’s intentions and goals. Nosek applies this interest to improve the alignment between personal and organizational values and practices. In 2015, he was named one of Nature’s 10 and to the Chronicle for Higher Education Influence list.

Research IT Showcase 2018 Poster Session
Date; May 16, 2018 from 2:30-5:00 pm
- Venue: Atkinson Hall Auditorium for faculty talks; exterior (lobby area) for poster session.
- The full event runs 2:30-5:00, with lightning talks in the Auditorium, beginning at 3:00.
UC San Diego Library’s Scholarly Communications will be located next to the folks from RDCP and Data Services.
This event features lightning talks by 4-5 representative faculty members highlighting research activities that have been supported by Research IT Services in FY2017-18.
We will share specific examples of Scholarly Communication engagements that will resonate with faculty attendees who may find opportunities take advantage of our services. Faculty can engage in conversation or browse informative displays and independently discover services that may benefit their research.
A cancer researcher and blogger, Jacob Scott, tweeted about an informal sentiment survey on preprint server use and was kind enough to engage with our interest in his results. Take a look at Dr. Scott’s blog for a good example of science communication.
Please take the survey and if you are UC San Diego affiliated, let us know in the comments if you have questions or want support in this area. We’re thinking of doing a workshop and would love to know what your interests are.
Barriers to posting pre-prints Survey
“I’m curious what the effects of the bioRxiv have been, so here is a follow up survey – 5 years later! – to ascertain barriers to utilization of open access preprint servers. All data is anonymous, participation is totally voluntary. I’ll be sharing the results on my blog in a few weeks time. If you are curious, the results from 5 years ago can be found here“
April 2018, Günter Waibel, the Associate Vice Provost / Executive Director for the California Digital Library (CDL) , has announced the Strategic Vision and the set of trends intended to drive the vision.
Set of Trends:
- Building on core strengths: DMPTool
- Building on core strengths: eScholarship
- Towards a collaborative statewide network
“Our new vision positions CDL to continue on that path, advancing the broader UC mission of teaching, research and public service. CDL has wholeheartedly committed itself to this new vision [PDF]. “
Courses Posted and Registration Open for the 2nd Annual FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Institute (FSCI2018). The Institute will again be hosted by the University of California, San Diego from July 30 – August 3, 2018. See more information here www.force11.org/fsci/2018.
FSCI2018 offers participants 5 days of training and skills development in new modes of research communication. All levels of participants, from absolute beginners to advancedat scholarly communication, will find courses of interest. If you are a scholar/researcher, librarian, institution administrator, funding agency manager, publishing administrator/editor, data manager, student, or anyone else who participates in scholarly communication, you will benefit from attending FSCI.
FSCI is organized by FORCE11 (The Future of Research Communication and e-Scholarship) in collaboration with the University of California San Diego Library. Force11 is a community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers, and research funders who study and facilitate new developments in knowledge creation and communication. Membership is open to all who share this interest!
