Reconciling Law and Ethics with Open Science in Biotechnology Research

Do the current ethical and legal policies applicable to research with genomic databases sufficiently account for the new reality of open biotechnology? How could the current policy framework be improved to facilitate the transition to a more transparent, collaborative research context? Our research will investigate the impact of open biotechnology on research ethics and legal policies with a particular focus placed on informed consent (scope of consent, privacy, data ownership) to large open database projects. We will use a combination of quantitative and qualitative research strategies that will offer complementary applied legal and ethical data on the impact of open biotechnology on the governance of genomic research. The use of a common research methodology in all streams of the project will facilitate comparisons and integration of our results. Our methods will include comparative legal and ethical research (policy review, legal research), questionnaire analysis and focus group interviews. To validate our findings, we will engage stakeholders at the annual meetings of two major organizations involved in research with open databases: The Public Population Project in Genomics (P3G) and the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).

Altmetrics: a new impact factor for new publishings

Altmetrics: a new impact factor for new publishings | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

In the latest issue of Research Information, David Stuart is wondering how researchers now can evaluate the impact of these new ways of publishing, including social channels.

Julien Hering, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 2012 5:06 AM

One of the answer is Altmetrics, the growing application that you will find now in every science journals and databases (like Scopus for e.g.) and which measures popularity of an article on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Use of this way to measure the research performance is still controversial (but still is Impact Factor 50 years after its beginning!) and “there is a long way to go before altmetrics fully answer any of the questions that are being raised by the new research environment“, says David.

However, altmetrics fast adoption shows that “research landscape is much more than journal articles, and there is a lot of value to be created by measuring the connections between the new types of publication“.

Your Timeline Submissions Wanted for the Open Book | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog

Your Timeline Submissions Wanted for the Open Book | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

The Finnish Institute in London and the Open Knowledge Foundation are publishing a book, and we want you to be a part of its history.

The Open Book (publish date 2013, details here) is a crowd-sourced publication which will contextualise the international open knowledge movement in the words of those who are helping build it today. This book, based on the ideas of more than 1,000 participants from over 50 nations who came together in to attend the world’s first Open Knowledge Festival this September in Helsinki, will highlight the hopes and motivations of those currently working to promote global change, and introduce the movement to new audiences. Based on pieces coming from a variety of leaders working in fields as diverse as sustainability, design, business and development, The Open Book will serve as a platform for discussion and a launching pad for new ideas about the future of a global movement in a time of rapid technological and societal change.

Open Access: a remedy against bad science | @ccess

Open Access: a remedy against bad science | @ccess | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

Who has never been in the situation that he had a set of data where some of them just didn’t seem to fit. A simple adjusting of the numbers or omitting of strange ones could solve the problem. Or so you would think. I certainly have been in such a situation more than once, and looking back, I am glad that I left the data unchanged. At least in one occasion my “petty” preformed theory proved to be wrong and the ‘strange data’ I had found were corresponding very well with another concept that I hadn’t thought of at the time.

Making Open Science Possible – Global Young Academy statement on Open Science | Open Science Working Group

The Open Science movement – giving free Internet access to scientific results and data – is a revolutionary development in the way science is made public. It has profound implications for the way in which libraries, data centres, researchers, universities, publishers, and funding bodies operate and interact. Most significantly, it offers opportunities to foster collaboration between scientists in the developed and developing world, as well as between scientists and interested non-scientists. Recent examples can be seen in the ‘Galaxy Zoo’ project, where the public can help astrophysicists classify images from the Hubble telescope, or the ‘open source malaria drug discovery program’, a network of scientists openly sharing drug development data. With initiatives like these, Open Science may foster the transformation of scientific research from a primarily academic, First World activity to a truly global endeavour.
