Let’s create a globally inclusive dialogue on Open Science Hardware (OSH) standards

“Hardware is a vital part of experiments process and advances in instrumentation have been central to scientific revolutions by expanding observations beyond standard human senses.” But making hardware and especially sharing hardware is neither an easy nor a recognized task in academia. In order to tackle this issue, some of us started a Research Data Alliance (RDA) interest group.

Survey: Certification for open source hardware designs under peer-review

Our colleague André Maia Chagas is inviting you to fill and share a little informal poll on Twitter about open source hardware documentation in academic papers: https://twitter.com/Chagas_AM/status/1337346638084452355?s=20 Articles on #openhardware have different documentation standards, making it harder for people to reproduce/customise designs. Would it be useful if journals asked submissions to Read more…
