“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.
Julieta Arancio, Alex Kutschera and André Maia Chagas share details about their mentorship program for Open Hardware projects.
Journals that publish Open Source Hardware designs have different requirements for the documentation that goes together with the paper being published.
