Weeks don’t get much bigger than this: The MyScienceWork team now officially spans two continents! On Wednesday, we fired up our San Francisco office at RocketSpace, extending our activity into a new frontier, America’s “Wild West”!
Over the last week, the Bay Area witnessed several members of the MSW team descending upon it. Come meet them – and a host of other great people invested in the OA movement – during Open Access Week:
Come join a participative Bay Area Open Access week event for Generation Open: Save the date to attend on October 23rd at SkyDeck, Berkeley
Unsure about what that means, “the OA movement”? Let Célya explain some of the basics of open science in this video and how it’s changing research:
This week, James Bowers wanted to talk openly about scientific research using animals. He felt that, with a lot of celebrity buzz around animal cruelty, recently, people were getting an inaccurate picture of animal experimentation. And, as a scientist himself, the best solution was to talk about it. Read his thoughts here:
Finally, two PhD thesis subjects that are unlikely ever to need animal models, and that show the fascinating breadth of research out there, were featured in Knock Knock Doc. Watch them both to learn about the planet Mercury and the nature of those things we call “screens”.
Enjoy the weekend, and we’ll do the same as some of us explore our new home! If you're a San Francisco fan, a science fan, or maybe even BOTH, feel free to leave your suggestions below!
