To manage health and medicine, scientists need to handle lots of data. Scientists often have trouble recruiting enough test subjects to do powerful studies. To bridge this gap between citizen scientists and researchers conducting clinical trials an online platform called Open Humans has recently been launched thanks to $1 million in grants from nonprofit organizations. The Open Humans network is created after nearly a decade of work by researchers with the Harvard Personal Genome Project (PGP). The PGP collected DNA from thousands of people for use in studies, and made much of the data available to the public in the process. The platform aims to provide to the participants to learn their results and use their information to sign up for additional studies.

What is the difference between 'doing Digital Humanities' and using digital tools for research?

What is the difference between 'doing Digital Humanities' and using digital tools for research? | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Tara Thomson shares her experience attending a participant-driven ‘unconference’ for digital humanities students and scholars. The event format aims to be democratic, aligned with how the Digital Humanities has aimed to build itself on devolved authority. But disciplinary knowledge is not always equally shared. The discussions highlighted problems of access and exclusion as primary concerns for the field. Some felt excluded from the Digital Humanities as a discipline, but also sometimes feel excluded from their stated disciplines because of their digital work.

Starting today, Impactstory profiles will cost $5/month. Here’s why that’s a good thing | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it
Starting today, Impactstory profiles cost $5 per month. Why? Because our goal has always been for Impactstory to support a second scientific revolution, transforming how academia finds, shares, understands, and rewards research impact. That’s why we’re a nonprofit, and always will be. But (news flash), that transformation is not going to happen overnight. We need …

Biotechnology: Independent streak

Biotechnology: Independent streak | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Scientists willing to take a risk are setting up individual research operations in rented lab space.

 

Ethan Perlstein was frustrated. As a non-traditional postdoc, he had spent five years running an independent lab at Princeton University in New Jersey. He wanted to continue doing what he had trained for, but a tough academic job market meant that he had no guarantees. So he decided to move to a noted biotechnology hub, California's San Francisco Bay area, to try launching his own lab without the support of an academic institution.

[Mendeley] Worldwide Research Collaboration Mapped Out

[Mendeley] Worldwide Research Collaboration Mapped Out | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Academia has a reputation for being a bit of a closed world, a walled garden of knowledge where secrets are jealously guarded. But the truth is that collaboration is at the very heart of research and scientific discovery, and that for science to advance, researchers need to get together, compare notes, disagree, and have their ideas challenged and built upon by others. Often this happens naturally – like in the cafeteria where PhD students will chat about their projects – but in such a hyper-specialized environment, chances are that people who share your particular research interests cannot be found in the same institution or even the same country. What then? (...) - by Alice BonasioMendeley Blog, 15 April 2013

BishopBlog: Blogging as post-publication peer review: reasonable or unfair?

BishopBlog: Blogging as post-publication peer review: reasonable or unfair? | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

In a previous blogpost, I criticised a recent paper claiming that playing action video games improved reading in dyslexics. In a series of comments below the blogpost, two of the authors, Andrea Facoetti and Simone Gori, have responded to my criticisms. I thank them for taking the trouble to spell out their views and giving readers the opportunity to see another point of view. I am, however, not persuaded by their arguments, which make two main points. First, that their study was not methodologically weak and so Current Biology was right to publish it, and second, that it is unfair, and indeed unethical, to criticise a scientific paper in a blog, rather than through the regular scientific channels.

[Audio] Le lundi 4 mars 2013, l’équipe du séminaire « les Aspects Concrets de la Thèse » invitait les sociologues Antonio Casilli et Karim Hammou à venir discuter de la place qu’occupent actuellement les médias sociaux dans le métier de chercheur, des possibilités qu’ouvrent ces nouveaux outils mais aussi des pièges qu’ils peuvent receler. La séance donna lieu à un état des lieux des pratiques, à un partage d’expérience et à une réflexion théorique sur les enjeux des médias sociaux pour la recherche.

Briefcase Biotec – biohacking your way to the future | | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

When we first heard about Briefcase Biotec we didn’t know what exactly to expect. Our attention was caught by their social media presence and their determination to promote biohacktivism. After looking into it, we realized how interesting their story must be, so we emailed Alexander Murer (CEO and co-founder) and invited him to have a short chat with us. That’s how we came to learn about Briefcase Biotec, OLGA and KiloBaser as well as what all these projects have in common: independence. Let us elaborate.

Feature Release: New image marker tool for labfolder users | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

In order to use images in a scientific context, you need to make a few annotations very often: Marks and labels help to understand what´s important, be it in your notes or in your publications. In your good old paper notebook, you would just simply scribble by hand to get the message across and to highlight your findings on agarose gels, graphs, or any other data output. [...]

Publons set to revolutionize peer review in physics

Publons set to revolutionize peer review in physics | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Publons is another great alternative or complement to the traditional peer review process. Like others, this service is an answer to the slow and rather opaque peer-review process, in which the fate of a manuscript is to the mercy of an anonymous pair of experts. The idea is that publishing research results should not be the limiting step. Papers should be published, then reviewed and commented-on by the readers. This sort of system would allow researchers to have a direct, rapid and interactive feedback on their work. (...) - by Thomas Crouzier, Connected researchers, April 11, 2013

In September 2011 I returned to work after a year on maternity leave. Many things needed sorting out, not least my digital presence at my home institution, which had switched to a content management system that seamlessly linked to University College London’s open-access repository, “Discovery.” The idea was we should upload open-access versions of all our previously published research, and link to it from our home pages, to aid in dissemination. (...) - by Melissa Terras, Journal of Digital HumanitiesVol. 1, No. 3 Summer 2012
