The Open Science Feed shares daily links to everything .

From collaboration tools, and OpenProtokols, to Manuscript Repositories and to publishing.

Community Cultivation Resource Library. The FOSS community has learned that open code licenses are not enough. Building communities and their governance are equally important. I think the same goes for Open Science.

Online in is a massive problem.

Why should you receive science-advertisement based on what you have been reading previously?

The German Research Foundation (DFG) in June 2021 warndes on this matter. Unfortunately this did not receive the public attention it deserves:

Three seminars: "What Can We Learn from Four Million [institutional repository] Downloads?", "The Local View: Promoting Open Access at The University of Southern Mississippi", "The Global View: A Look at Open Access Efforts Around the World"

Make Sci-hub legal :scihub:

Abolish copyright on academic papers
