Scientists Embrace Openness Article in Science Careers

Chelsea Wald just published an article in Science Careers: Scientists Embrace Openness (April 9, 2010). She interviewed several people in the Open Science movement including Jonathan Eisen, Steve Koch, Anthony Salvagno, Carl Boettiger and myself.

The article covers Open Notebook Science, Open Data and associated themes. I think it presents a view of the most commonly discussed advantages and disadvantages very well.

One section was particularly relevant to an issue I recently posted about - (and discussed on FriendFeed):

Open Notebook Science advocates claim that being open may protect a scientist's ideas rather than exposing them to theft. Newton's decision to conceal his findings within an anagram made it harder for him to prove priority over rival Gottfried Leibniz. Open Notebook scientists say all they need to do is point to their open notebooks to show that they had an idea or found a result first.

ONS t-shirts from Zazzle

Inspired by Graham Steel, I just received my t-shirt with an Open Notebook Science Logo and a picture of our crystal on the cover of our ONS Solubility Challenge book.

I was going to set up an ONS store but Zazzle does not permit zero royalties (don't see the logic there). But making up t-shirts on Zazzle is super simple - just grab a logo of your choice from the ONSclaims wiki.

Any other pic is your choice - this is the crystal from UCEXP150C

You can also order all kinds of other personalized things, including coffee cups.
