Ciència oberta: 
qui ho paga?

Les Open Society Foundations i la Invest in Open Infrastructure han finançat un informe que té com objectiu entendre millor com operen les OSI de cara a facilitar-ne la seva viabilitat i permanèn-cia. L’informe està fet a partir de les respostes de diferents OSI europees a un extens i complet qüestiona-ri que va rebre respostes de 120 projectes o serveis diferents de 28 països. 

El següent post fa un petit resum dels punts més importants de l'informe.

The Absurdity of Peer Review

Reporting science differently because it hasn’t been peer reviewed is absurd. None of the classic papers on DNA, nor Einstein’s four in his miracle year, were peer reviewed. Now, scientists write a manuscript detailing their findings and submit it to a journal, where an editor then asks some other scientists, to review the work. On the basis of these reviews the editor makes a decision: accept the paper, ask for revisions, or reject the paper. Getting a paper from that start line of its first submission to the published version can take months. 

Small mistakes, big impacts

Data analysis is a process with many stages, involving data collection, cleaning, analysis and statistical inference. Errors can creep in at any point. 
To help avoid programming mistakes, clinical researchers, statisticians, or data scientists who perform the data analysis should be equipped with programming skills, exploit the advantages of computational notebooks, and learn from software engineering. 
An article from the Royal Statistical Society that delves into the subject is linked below.
