Evidence Synthesis and Open Science

Evidence Synthesis

Synthesizing evidence is becoming an increasingly critical part of our scientific workflow. Here we propose the development of a ‘open evidence synthesis community’ to help coordinate and facilitate the efforts of empiricists and synthesists as we work together towards creating new scientific insights.

Incorperating Open Science Principles into Ecological Field Courses

The next generation of researchers is likely to work in a world where Open Science principles and workflows are increasingly mainstream and expected, not only within the research community, but also by funders, publishers, and society at large. It is critical that field courses are designed to prepare ECRs for these challenges. Combining online and field-based learning following Open Science principles offers many possibilities to stimulate development of field courses, data and knowledge yield, and ECR development.
