Open Notebook Science: Research in Real-Time


Published on

A presentation I gave to students at the New Mexico Graduate and Professional Student Conference. Open science is the future of science, and open notebook science is the future of how scientific information is accessed and propagated. Here I present examples from my notebook and from a case study of an open notebook community (Physics 308L Junior Lab).

Open Notebook Science: Research in Real-Time

  1. 1. Open Notebook ScienceResearch in Real-Time by anthony salvagno
  2. 2. how is science traditionally carried out?
  3. 3. closed & isolatedideas results and the outcome...
  4. 4. peer review publication writing formatting acceptance inaccessible limited
  5. 5. peer review is designed to weed out misinformation... ...but now there are so many journalsscientists will eventually get published.
  6. 6. What is the alternative?
  7. 7. open science open access outreachdata methods public access reinventing discovery citizen science
  8. 8. open notebook science“ ...the practice of making the entire primary record of a research project publicly available online as it is recorded. ”and that record includes...
  9. 9. project inception, project intro in notebook
  10. 10. plannning,project plan on mindmeister
  11. 11. protocols,how to seal a sample
  12. 12. equipment,equipment list with links to sources
  13. 13. data,tobacco seed growth in heavy water via google docs and figshare
  14. 14. and conclusions.recap of trial 4 from tobacco seed growth experiment
  15. 15. what are the Key aspects ofOpen notebook science?
  16. 16. repeatability transparency provenancecommunication
  17. 17. What’s in it For me?
  18. 18. lots of publications measurable impact open notebook science real-time peer review warm fuzzies and (outreach)collaboration
  19. 19. What’s the catch?
  20. 20. can you still publish in a journal?will my notebook be around when I’m dead?how many people are doing this?would anyone even read my notebookand comment in it?
  21. 21. right now the ons community is smalland diversethis makes it hard to understand howcollaboration and peer review wouldwork in this environment so...
  22. 22. Physics 308L Junior lab: the ons case study
  23. 23. 12 students 2 groups (mon & wed) electronics lab
  24. 24. the rules: 1 pick any notebook platform 2 must read and comment in each others’ notebooks 3 “cheat” when able
  25. 25. results (still in progress): prefer electronic notebook format benefitted from collaboration had to be encouraged to “cheat” found it useful learned how to use collaborative tools for science
  26. 26. What’s next for open notebook science?
  27. 27. the bottom up approach:teach students the benefits of ons convince professors that going open isn’t a sacrifice find and propogate ons success stories reu/igert training specifically for open science
  28. 28. the top down approach:help develop open science tools fix archival issues find the ideal open notebook platform require open access for funding
  29. 29. The End
  30. 30. busting science open iheartanthony, do you?
