A Revolution in Evolution: Open Science Projects at Duke (The Edge Open Series)

A Revolution in Evolution: Open Science Projects at Duke (The Edge Open Series)

The scientific practice of sharing information, begun in earnest with the creation of society journals, entered a new epoch with the digital age. Through online open science projects, Duke researchers Karen Cranston and Doug Boyer are extending the potential for sharing data and expanding our knowledge of evolution, from microbes to mammals. Join us as they talk with Duke librarian Elena Feinstein about the motivations behind open science, how their projects (MorphoSource and Open Tree of Life) embody and benefit from openness, and the professional rewards (and challenges) of pursuing open science. Hosted at the Forum for Scholars and Publics (Old Chem 011, West Campus).

This talk is made possible by the Forum for Scholars and Publics, Duke University Libraries' Digital Scholarship Services department, and The Edge: The Ruppert Commons for Research, Technology, and Collaboration, which is hosting a series of events at Duke in 2016-2017 on the theme of Open. With presentations, workshops, and project teams focused on open access, data, publishing, research, scholarship, science, and software, the Libraries offer an opportunity for the Duke community to discuss, learn, reflect, and engage in a changing scholarly landscape that promises to expand the traditional boundaries of academia.
