The Reagent Project aims to upcycle reagents that are wasting away in lab fridges around the world. The idea is that researchers share their unused/ no longer necessary reagents with others that have samples but don’t have access to the reagents.
This project and other related to wetware, are archived here.
Some updates for the already existing pages of the website:
Faculty of a 1000, thickens the list of open access journals. One of the strong points is that they change the way peer reviewed is done. Here, the review process is a non-anonymous way and post publication! All changes made to the paper are tracked, so one can check the paper’s evolution. Also it is mandatory that the data used in the paper is made publicly available (also on the journal website).
Figshare and dryad are two data repositories that give your data digital object identifiers, making them traceable and citable.
Open lab notebook section: There are still very few examples, so suggestions are welcome!
Also, Openeuroscience is now on Twitter! so if you want to follow our updates and get quick messages on cool stuff we find here and there follow us!
Credit where is due: Some of this new information came from J. Christopher Bare excellent post “Guide to open science”.
Another brief update to the website, the signal generator section introduces open source instructions to build waveform generators (very usefull tools for behavioural paradigms, software development and circuit testing).
